Tonight's episode of the Flash was very interesting... it is a
crossover episode between Supergirl and the Flash (strange that
the Flash and Supergirl exist on alternative Earths).
Yeah, I think that was a holdover when supergirl was on CBS or ABC or whatever.
Anyhow, it Guest stars Darren Criss from Glee as what appears, at
first, to be a villian but becomes something more mysterious at
the end that makes you wonder. Anyhow without spoiling it, this
is a musical with a good superhero story behind it. I don't want
to spoil it for anyone, but tonight I had an Aunt visiting who was
amazed that a comic book super hero show could hold a comic book
style super hero plot together and marry it with a musical that is
also very visually beautiful. I have to say, the Justice League
movie's flash is going to have a hard time competing with the TV
Show's flash. I am continually amazed by the quality of this
show... and Supergirl, while it is good, does not hold up to the
high standard set in the Flash.
Grant Gustin is an amazing actor.
The singing was off for me, though.
They recorded the songs as voiceovers, so it gave the singing an
unnatural quality. That uncanny valley where it was too perfect, with
no background noise or echo. Other than that, the episode was great. It reminded me of the Buffy musical episode, "Once More With Feeling" but wasn't so similar that it felt like a rip-off.
