I remember that series, with Nicholas Hammond. As I recall it, they gave it a pretty good effort, and their hearts were in the right place as regards respecting the source material. But the special-effects technology wasn't nearly up to the task, yet. (For the curious, type the words "spiderman" and "hammond" into YouTube's search, and they have the hour-and-a-half-long pilot episode.)

The only successful TV Marvel had was the Hulk. DC at least had Superman in the 50's, Batman in the 60's and Wonder Woman in the 70's.

And Superman again in the 90s, with Lois & Clark.  It's too bad the 80s Flash didn't make it more than a season, though.
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

Forgot about those two. So really they had one decent show every decade.

I liked the Flash. Was a shame it didn't get picked up another season. Glad to see the new Flash people are fans with their casting and using characters like Tina and Trickster, and other little callbacks.

Still waiting for a 'Julio' cameo or mention.

I'm digging Firestorm's uniform in that trailer, btw.
I used CIT before they even joined the Titan network! But then I left for a long ol' time, and came back. Now I edit the wiki.

I noticed on the CW's side site that they have the 1990's Flash series.

Speaking of 1990s series I just learned yesterday that there was a short-lived Human Target series in 1992 where Christopher Chance actually disguised himself as the target like in the comics. It starred none other than Rick Springfield. No word on whether he successfully disguised himself as Jessie.

Well considering the last Arrow had a reference about Avengers 2 (see gifs below), I wouldn't put it past them to include a Doctor Who joke or two.  I'm betting on "thought it would be bigger on the inside".

I love the heaping mounds of snark, sarcasm, and self-deprecation in these crossover episodes.

I enjoyed that. Loved the name dropping like Per Degaton and calling the ship 'Waverider'.
And Rory finally gets to be the Doctor. Good for him.

And they finally figured out a way to make Firestorm even more rapey.

Somehow i got the idea that Flash and Green Arrow would be part of the team... must've been the trailer. :roll:
I'm bad and that's good.
I'll never be good and that's not bad.
There's no one I'd rather be than me.

...unless I could be Batman, of course. Everybody wants to be Batman.

A misleading trailer - never happens.

I'm sure we will have a crossover soon.

DC may not know how to do movies well but they are knocking it out of the park with these series. (Flash, Legends)

Absolutely. 

(sarcasm) Wouldn't it just suck if they were to use the TV show successes to launch their movies instead of keeping them separate?  (/sarcasm)

Yep. Because the Flash film has nothing to do with the TV series.

Though I would like to see them expand the Multiverse and say all the versions of Batman, Superman, etc either from Smallville or films or Gotham, and the upcoming JLA film, are all part of it and exist.

Just watched the pilot of the 1992 Human Target series i mentioned above. Pretty much what you'd expect from a short-lived early '90s series. The only highlights were one of Chance's crew being played by the late Clarence Clemons and a kid baseball player being played by a very young Rachel Bilson.

Clarence's presence means it definitely merits a visit from Rip and the gang as far as I'm concerned.
