    This post has spoilers, so if you don't want to know what happened, stop reading now.

    Someone leaked the new Flash tv show's premier online, but I was able to watch it before WB cracked the whip.

    And it was quite good. Has a lot of potential. They put money into the special effects, which indicates they have confidence in their product. It steals some of Smallville's formula(Kryptonite fragments creating metahumans) by using the accident that created Flash as a catalyst for also creating super villains. Weather Wizard is a metahuman, and not a crook with a wand(and I was a little underwhelmed by the choice of actor - not impressive at all). The acting by the principles, however, was pretty good. And there was several references to other characters(Professor Zoom, Grodd, Chyre), and a newspaper clip from the future that contained headlines mentioning a merger between Oliver Queen's company and Wayne Enterprises, plus a teaser headline mentioning Flash's disappearance during Crisis. With the right casting and directing, this show could be as good as Smallville. I'm crossing my fingers.

If its only as good as Smallville then its a failure! IMO   Now if its as good as Arrow then we are talking. 

It took Smallville finally getting Clark graduated and to Metropolis before it really took off again IMO.
