Yeah I wonder about that too. If it's intentional I wish they'd just release it.

I hate that I'm going to have to wait til so much later after so many people have seen it but I'm not going to steal it.

When stuff like this gets "leaked" I wonder if it was by accident or to get the word of mouth out on the net???

I think the same thing at times. You can see the strategy. Its almost a free way of estimating your ratings without too much compromise on views when you actually air your pilot, especially in the cases when "a couple of scenes were omitted from the leaked cut". Folks are still gonna watch TV.

A lot of people work on production, but very few of them actually have access to the final cut.

Great episode.
Grods cage was an interesting easter egg.
So anyone thinks that guy from STAR labs is The Chief?

I know I shouldn't be reading this thread before I watch it but I have a habit on clicking ones where I've made a comment,  so I'd really appreciate liberal use of spoiler tags. Sori for being that guy.

Just saw the first episode and this show is going to be awesome.  I can see crossovers, the Rogue, Zoom, and much more coming to the show if they continue doing this show right.

Solid pilot episode, and I haven't been a booster of this show as an idea so far.

So the pilot has been leaked! Has anybody else seen it?
I've got to say that I am a huge fan of Arrow, and this show is shaping up to be just as good....if they can keep the special effects budget up.
Of course there was the obligatory CW teenage romance type plots, and a few cringeworthy dialog moments, but I like how this show is going to be a bit more bright and fantastic as opposed to Arrow's grim n gritty.

I thought they crammed way too much into a single episode. You have Barry's entire tragic childhood backstory, superhero origin, day job, cast of supporting allies and villains, love interest, love rival, costume, mentors, first super villain, Easter Eggs galore, and a pretty decent mastery of his powers all in a single episode. The story seemed to jump around a lot from location to location, and there was a truckload of exposition.

I understand that they probably wanted a strong pilot episode that wrapped up all the "boring" stuff, showed off some cool effects and set The Flash up for superhero adventures immediately in Episode 2, but I really wish they'd paced it a bit better and spread all of this out over at least two episodes.

That said, all the actors, action scenes, costume and special effects were fine and the Easter Eggs were appreciated, particularly
Spoiler (click to show/hide)
at the end. I also liked the fact that

.

There is plenty of interesting stuff the writers can draw from Mark Waid's and Geoff Johns' run on the comic ... The Flash is generally a lot better comic than, say, Green Arrow. And the CW has churned out some surprisingly cool shows lately, like The Tomorrow People, Star-Crossed and The 100 (two of which have been cancelled, but still...).  So, there is potential for The Flash to be good.

Am I the only one who thinks Wells is possibly The Chief and that we could see Doom Patrol down the road?

Could be, but there's a lot of gaps in that theory, and until later episodes fill them in we have no idea what's going down with that.

I know nothing about the actor, but he looks entirely CW.  At least there's a good reason for Ronny Raymond to be a youngster.  It would be cool, unlikely, but still cool, if we got the Ronny/Prof. Stein version of Firestorm. :)

It's Stephen Amell's brother. He was on the Tomorrow People. It was really really stupid but whatever I'm sure he'll be fine.

It's neat, and very surprising,  that we're going to see a live action version of Firestorm.

On another note. Wentworth Miller has been cast as Captain Cold, no complaints there, he's a great actor if you've seen Prison Break.

Interesting casting reported today, Clancy Brown as The General.
That's pretty cool, though honestly I find it amusing that both the character and actor appeared in Justice League but not as the same.

Boop, here's a set photo of Miller as Snart

I think this before cold gun Cold, hopefully anyway, while I think that they'll probably design a new costume rather than the goofy eskimo suit. I still hope they keep the glasses.

Edit:
Seems to be Girder is also appearing on Ep6. Cool, it seems that Flash as a series was a good way to go imo, a movie can barely represent his colorful cast of enemies with enough development, and if there's one thing I love about Flash, it's his Rogues.

Just saw the pilot with my with my wife and we both liked it. Nice story, with a lot of classic comics references and easter eggs, I liked the plot and the promise of a take in the Rogues Gallery (we can't have without the Rogues, right?). The costume works, it have the mandatory "it's not a super-hero costume, it's protective armor" modern look, but it looks like a Flash costume.
The only thing we don't liked:
