TV Shows: CW’s The Flash

tvshowtalk

About a year ago I started watching the CW’s Arrow, a TV show based on the superhero Green Arrow by DC Comics. DC Comics and I go way back — once I knew Batman existed, they basically owned my heart. Over the years I developed a curiosity towards comic books, but it wasn’t until last year that I started getting into them.

About three years ago, a friend of mine named Amy introduced me to this guy named Grant Gustin — actor, singer, Instagram and Twitter lover. He starred in Glee at the time (a show I only randomly watched), but Amy was convinced that Grant was going to make it big. We watched Glee, we stayed up till 5am to watch the premiere of Lifetime’s A Mother’s Nightmare, where Grant starred opposite 90210’s Jessica Lowndes (Grant actually had a role in 90210 as well, just throwing that out there) and well — I was convinced too. Grant was going to make it big. When casting for a TV show about The Flash began, we jokingly said, “Wouldn’t it be great if Grant became Barry Allen?”

Next week, CW’s The Flash premières and Grant Gustin is Barry Allen.

Album review: The White Queen OST

ALBUM REVIEW

Album: The White Queen Original Soundtrack
Music by: John Lunn
Rating: ★★★★☆
The original soundtrack for BBC’s historical TV series The White Queen.

Back in June of 2013, I started watching BBC’s The White Queen, based on Philippa Gregory’s Cousins’ War series (The White Queen, The Red Queen and The Kingmaker’s Daughter). As someone who loved the TV series The Tudors (complete with all its faults), I was more than willing to check out a TV series about the people before Henry VIII and his companions. I was not disappointed. I really, really enjoyed watching The White Queen and learning more about the Yorks and how the Tudor reign came to be.

Now, I’ve said this before, but music is so utterly important in TV series and movies, and The Tudors for example for no exception. The tracks that Trevor Morris created for all four seasons of that show fit the scenes perfectly and made everything so much more intense. John Lunn has done exactly the same for The White Queen.
