1. Amazing. I love how this show reworks old classics to something far more entertaining. He was perfectly sinister and creepy. 2. How can you pick one? The driving, abbie squealing like a kid on a roller coaster. The bit with the earbuds. The cappuccino. I mean how can you not be in love with Tom Mison? In fact how can you not love him and Nicole Beharie together and apart? Their chemistry is on fire, the best I've seen out of two actors in ages. I mean, onscreen it's magic because offscreen they're equally as magical as friends and that makes all the difference in the world. I could gush about the two of them forever. 3. He will. Right now he's in denial. He seems cool, kind of shady but I struggled to see what the point of him is. Jenny was a mercenary with extensive knowledge in the supernatural. He's. . Meh. 4. Henry screwing with him. 5. No idea.
Joe and Barry's heartfelt scene stole the night. That of course speaks volumes because there is so much to like. I find their relationship to be one of the most fascinating. This detective who didn't owe this kid anything taking him and, raising him, and viewing him as the son he never had. As a person who typically finds family/deep friendship type relationships infinitely more interesting to watch, i love the "family feels". I've never got any other vibe other than stern father-figure from Joe and watching the pain in his eyes when Barry said he wasn't his father and the barely concealed tears when Barry pretty much called him Dad was everything warm, fuzzy, and good in the world. I hope Iris finds out about Barry soon. I loved the scene when he confessed his feelings. The special effects continue to be kind of amazing considering how easily it could become cheesy. Iris is delightful and Patton nails that "girl next door charm". I find her refreshing and relatable, and I hate that she's always being compared to Laurel Lance. To me, she already started off on the right foot, because she's actually likeable whereas laurel didn't even start off likeable, sweet, or charming, and arguably still isn't no matter how they try to rework her character. I look forward to her getting something meatier, but her scenes with Barry are just sweet. I think they play off of one another quite nicely and it'll only get stronger. I don't think Henry will ever get out of jail. In fact I don't think he'll be alive by the end of the season. I'm looking forward to them fleshing out the other characters. Everyone seems fairly solid but I'd love for them to delve into what makes everyone click, sooner rather than later. Grant Gustin is a treasure. I could watch him for ages.
Couldnt log in. You, I like. I don't have as much time as I'd like to read these reviews, so I've taken to perusing over the weekends, and I love and appreciate everything you say. You typically express everything I'm thinking but have all but given up on stating. And (and I as a woc HATE this compliment, as it's typically backhanded if you catch my drift) you state your opinions so articulately. So kudos. 👍
