    Robbie Amell's schedule is why he isn't around. He's been cast on the X-Files reboot. His career is starting to take off from what I gather so he's probably got too much on his plate to ever come back as anything more than a guest star.

Awesome, glad I got confirmation. It's good to see Robbie's career taking off. I liked his work in the short lived Tomorrow People. \:\)

And had I did a Young Justice movie, I would have cast him as Superboy.

    I think they kept the Firestorm idea for the following reasons:

    1. Victor Garber is too good an actor to lose.

Don't like him, but yes...he is a good actor.

    2. There already was a precedent in the comics for replacing Ronnie with a black guy. So it's not being unfaithful to the comics.

I know. I have no problems with it. I already like Jax and I look forward to seeing what becomes of him in Legends of Tomorrow. \:\)

    3. They could have went the Jason Rousch route but they already introduced Jason last season and he was a scientist just like Ronnie. He wouldn't have offered anything new. This Jay Jackson guy is more like comics Ronnie.

Jefferson not Jay. ;\)

And your right. He would offer nothing new because Dr. Stien is the brains and Jax is the power.


    (all that said...was I the only who cringed when Dr. Stein told Jax to use his natural athletic ability...sounded unintentionally racist but I know he meant because Jax was a football player not because he was black)

I didn't cringe, but I did think it a little strange now that I look back on it. How can one use natural athletic ability while floating? Hm.

    He reminded me of the Street Sharks. He was one of those things that was so lame it circled around and became awesome. And him showing up at the end just seemed so random. I laughed uncontrollably.

I laughed too, it was awesome. And I think it was supposed to be random. It's good that the writers keep us on our toes. ;\)

    I think we'll see her a few more times.

Probably. Wally West still hasn't entered the picture yet. I think when he shows, ol' mommy dearest will leave.

    If Joe is Wally's father (an article I read says he is) then Joe should be furious that Francine never gave him a chance to raise his son.

Yeah, he'll be mad. I can definitely see that.

    There's something about her that kind of annoys me. To me they're trying too hard to make her this loveable goofball Barry falls for. She might be perfect for Barry if they stop writing her like she's perfect for Barry. Once we've seen her bad days then I might like her. Right now she's a little TOO perfect.

I think you have a point there. From the articles I have read up on, Patty is actually supposed to be Barry's love interest this season and hence that is why she is being dressed up as being perfect for him.

Patty needs some flaws, she needs some character development to make us care about her. She's shown a little already since she says her dad was killed by a metahuman but other than that, we haven't seen anything else to make us care. Let's hope we see more flaws and have more reasons to care because if we don't, I predict that the fans will only end up hating her.

    I would rate this one a three. This was one of the more boring episodes. The random manshark might bump it up a half star.

Ok. ;\)

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I appreciate it. \:\)

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
