Nerds of Color Triple Shot: The Flash 1.11, Arrow 3.11 & Supergirl

I banged out three pieces for the Nerds of Color yesterday, because I am obsessed with the Super Flarrow universe Greg Berlanti and team are creating.

NOC RECAPS THE FLASH:  SELFIES, SECRETS, AND SONIC WAVES

Team Flash (this photo will be important later, I can feel it)

First up, I did this week’s The Flash recap, where Barry and Team Flash encounter the Pied Piper and some of the cracks in Dr. Wells’ secrets chamber begin to splinter.

BLERD BOOST FOR SUPERGIRL: MEHCAD BROOKS CAST AS JIMMY OLSEN

Jimmy and Kara might getting a little swirly…

Then I wrote about the exciting news that Jimmy Olsen is now black! This gives the upcoming Supergirl series some serious blerd cred. I’m so glad they “thought outside the box” as the actor, Mehcad Brooks, stated on Twitter.

NOC RECAPS ARROW: WEEKEND AT OLLIE’S

They need to fix the way the mask sits on her face, it’s bothering me.

Finally, I did this week’s Arrow recap as well, where the remains of Team Flash act more like teenagers whose parents went out of town and had a big party where everything gets broken rather than adults who know when to quit. Thankfully, Mama Felicity saves the day. But she can’t save Laurel from the creepiest Weekend at Bernie’s stunt she’s pulled on Captain Lance since Sara died. Sara MUST be coming back since they’ve refused to tell him this long.

Thanks for playing!

NOC Recaps The Flash 1.06: Explosive Friendships | thenerdsofcolor

Check out my Flash recap over on The Nerds of Color. The Iris story line about being a blogger hit many of us real close to home… lol

Iris’ little blogger heart falls for the streak a little bit more and continues to write about it online. Joe, continuing to want Iris to stay ignorant to Barry’s little secret, makes Barry tell her to quit it. But their argument over her stubbornness and his lack of support for her makes her all the more resolved to write. Her next blog post on the Flash features her name on the byline. She’s serious about this.

Hmm too real? LOL

Also, post writing this recap, I learned that one of the shipper names for Iris/Barry is “Running West,” which I love and will use from now on. Thanks, tumblr!
