Gotham and The Flash. DC Comics has taken over the TV landscape. Autumn 2014 has brought us two new series: Gotham on FOX and The Flash on the CW. It seems that the world cannot get enough live-action comics, and the networks and producers are happy to oblige. But now that we've turned our screens on, what do we think about the product?   In this episode of The 602 Club, host Matthew Rushing is joined by Norman Lao, Jamie Sanchez, and Daniel Proulx to talk about Gotham and The Flash, the characters, first impressions, criticisms, and delights. Plus, we also delve into the big DC cinematic universe announcement. Host Matthew Rushing Guests Norman C. Lao, Daniel Proulx, and Jaime Sanchez
