The Flash has lost a few viewers this season. It has too many speedsters on the team (Barry, Wally, Jesse) and, after two seasons which the main villain was also a speedster, fans were hoping for something different.
One of my many complains is Wally. I think he is one of the most horrible characters in the show, along with HR. The best thing to do is for him to go be The Flash in another city. Everybody loved Harry last season, and why they’ve decided to change him for HR is just incomprehensible.
However, what really disappointed me was the musical crossover episode. They have been announcing it for months, they have the most talent cast, but what could’ve been epic, was wasted.
As a fan of musicals, and after Buffy’s Once More With Feeling, I had great expectations for this. I wanted to see a superhero musical, but they not only decided to make the whole story sort of a “vintage dream”, it only had like 6 songs in the whole episode. I kept waiting for more songs to come, all in vain.
For me, it would be great if the villain made them sing in the real world. It would be a delight to see Supergirl and The Flash fighting and singing about their frustrations, or Cisco and Winn becoming bros and singing about it, or many other possibilities. It was really frustrating.
So, The Flash, why do you hate me? And especially, why would you destroy my superhero musical dream?
