I've never heard of this before. But I am pretty young and Flash isn't really my favorite DC hero.  :)

The whole series is available to watch on the CW Seed
http://cwseed.com/shows/the-flash-classic/

I'm mainly familiar with the current CW show, but checked out the 90 minute pilot and wow...definitely a different take. I can see why this one feels associated with the Burton Batman films as this seemed like they were capitalizing on it much in the same way that Arrow was capitalizing on the Nolan Batman films.

Looking forward to watching more and imagining this and Lois & Clark in the same universe as the 90s Batman.
That awkward moment when you remember the only Batman who's never killed is George Clooney...

Ah, yes – I like to think that somewhere out there in the DC Multiverse is Earth-90, a world populated by the heroes of the nineties DC adaptations. A Justice League for the Nirvana, Baywatch, Central Perk generation.


No! Not them!

I meant these guys:


And if they need extra reinforcements they can always call on Nightshade, Silverstone’s Batgirl or Shaq’s Steel for backup. I just wish there was a nineties Green Lantern and Wonder Woman to fill out their ranks.

Have you watched any more episodes of The Flash yet, BatmAngelus? And if so, what are your thoughts?

Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill constitute one of the most iconic hero/villain pairings in the history of comic book adaptations. But for me, the pairing of John Wesley Shipp and Hamill is every bit as classic. So to see them still going at it, in live action, over a quarter of a century since they first battled, is a real treat.  :)

I just stumbled across this interesting ‘making of’ featurette. I’d not seen it before.

Thanks for posting that! It's exactly the type of thing that should've been on the DVD release...

Agreed. I’m sure the cast and crew would have been willing to participate in the recording of new material too. Many of them attended a special reunion screening in 2015 and seemed only too happy to discuss the making of the show.








Something like this would have been perfect for the DVD.
