This can’t be a coincidence can it?!? “Heaven” is the same place as part of “Two Streams” medical facility?!? “Missy” seems to be collecting people that died because of (or for) The Doctor, but why?

The second question is why here? This is clearly the same place and it’s not like they tried to disguise it (other than lots of flowers). How weird is that? This is the Two Streams health care facility where Amy Pond was stuck for 30+ years back in season 6 in episode 10 (The Girl Who Waited) and now they’re using it for Missy’s “Heaven”. It could a coincidence and they just thought no one would notice…

This can’t be a coincidence can it? “Heaven” is the same place as part of “Two Streams” medical facility?!? It’s pretty much the same camera angle (if I dug around more, I could probably find one even closer).

To be clear (just for the DW geeks): this is the time stream where older Amy shouldn’t exist any more (the place itself should still exist) but this image is probably from before younger (normal age) Amy was rescued, we assume the older Amy disappeared when the younger was rescued (re-writing time) but we don’t know for certain; she was captured and if the time being rewritten didn’t erase her then it’s likely she would have been killed with “kindness” (but could have been saved last minute). I’m not saying this has anything to do with Amy (it’s more likely an evil alternate version of Clara!), it’d be a stretch that this could be her evil child that somehow grew up in the facility; not likely, as this was post Melody being born and she couldn’t have more kids, but she was in a medical facility…

So The Flash is coming to television this fall on The CW. The effects look great and I like the guy who plays him but I think I’m going to dislike the show…

Why do I think I won’t like it? Because of the same reason I didn’t like (but watched anyways) Smallville. The Flash got his powers because of an explosion at S.T.A.R. labs and I think that’s where we’re going to have all the villains powers come from, forget that these villains already have an origin story, they got them from the explosion. In Smallville, it seemed like most of the villains (or misunderstoods) got their powers from “meteor rock” (Kryptonite) and that got to be annoying to me, but the show lasted many seasons (I didn’t watch all the seasons, I wavered for a while) so maybe that won’t be a problem. It’s not like they need to dumb it down for people, shows like Lost are way more complicated than characters’ origin stories (which aren’t even necessary) and people watched that for more than a few seasons.

On the other hand, this was the premise in Misfits (awesome TV series from the UK) and it never bothered me; the main characters got their powers from the storm and most of the shenanigans/villains that they got involved with were tied to the storm, but those characters didn’t have an already established backstory and with only six episodes per season, they didn’t have much time to establish anything necessary for continuity. Although, it’d be a stretch to say most the “good guys” in Misfits were “heroes”, “not villains” would be a more accurate description.

Regardless, I’ll watch this for more than a few episodes, I like the characters and it’ll be compelling watching TV based on what I loved as a kid!

FYI, The Flash will be on Tuesdays on the CW starting on October 7th, 2014.

Update:
I forgot to mention I liked all the detail in the poster (it’s actually what made me blog this in the first place). Check out all the buildings: On the right is Queen Consolidated (Green Arrow) Star Labs (important in DC universe and The Flash getting his powers + Big Belly Burger (in DC comics [maybe on TV too?]) and on the left is Amertek (Steel from comics worked there) + Kord Industries/Enterprises (Blue Beetle’s company).

I can’t figure out the logo on the tall building on the large building (slightly bigger than Queen Con.) in the back/left and it looks like it says “Star” but we have one of those already, I heard William Sadler will be playing Simon Stagg on this series so maybe it’s a Stagg building (it does look like 5-ish letters)? Anyone know what the Stagg logo looks like?

Also, the graffiti on the sidewalk says “Grodd Lives” (front right by the fire hydrant).
