Get used to superheroes on your television, because they are soon going to be on every night on every channel. That's only a slight exaggeration, with eight comic book-based series hitting small screens this fall (and midseason), and many more in development over the next few years. With the number of super-shows on such a steep incline, it's time to start separating the wheat from the chaff. The CW has a surprisingly good track record adapting comics, with successful Superman and Green Arrow series under their belt, and their new 'run' should also be a quick hit. Bright, colorful and fun, The Flash is the daylight to Arrow's dark (k)night. The Flash is not a Christopher Nolan-inspired take on the comic-book character. To use the current wave of superhero blockbusters as a barometer, The CW series feels much more like a Marvel movie than something from DC. It's not dark and shadowy and deadly serious, which is rather refreshing, since 'gritty and real' seems to be the mandate for most comic book adaptations after the Dark Knight Trilogy. And since Arrow definitely got the memo, it's nice to see its spin-off go in its own way so successfully. Night and day make a good team.
