Time well spent gentlemen, even with the minimalist "Aquaman" mention. I may need to arrange to do something about that...

Shag, I myself do not believe the Ronnie Raymond character is dead. We shall see. I have a feeling we will see Ronnie again on THE FLASH in a... ah, flashback first -- and I still have hope that one of those flashbacks will be the "deleted transmutation scene" from the series one finale...

I had actually always seen Professor Stein as the "Mr. Wizard" of the Firestorm comic book... and recall him giving Ronnie (and the readers) brief lessons of scientific principles that were a little out of the scope of his expertise (like how to disrupt a tropical storm, for example). I had always rationalized that as Stein having a basic knowledge of various fields of science from his earlier studies before he became an expert in nuclear physics...

I also enjoyed the "Atom Smasher" naming scene. It evoked the same "hint of a mad scientist" feeling as the scene in "Fallout" when Stein was talking about Barry being able to time travel...

Despite its faults (and it was never a perfect show), I and my family do enjoy watching THE FLASH programme together and we will continue to do so... even if going forward the show will be speaking of me as if I am the bad guy...

(However, Candice Patton at DragonCon was quoted as saying "Xum is going to be bad-ass", so at least there is that...)

I would donate to any cause that has Rob Kelly play FDR throughout... especially if on occasion he has a debate with the SuperFriends Darkseid...

And the new rendition of your closing theme sounds really good. Nice to keep us long-time listeners on our toes...
