You're welcome!

So the full-on "official" URL for K-Metal is:

But the shortcut URL: still works for the time being - it'll be a little while until that one expires.

Yeah, they wanted somewhere in the ballpark of $40 per year to renew  I've let, (somewhere around $99 per year), and ($75 per year) all recently expire.  That would have been $214 !!  Some of these two character country-code Top Level Domains are absurdly priced. .am used to be affordable, but the annual fee has been steadily increasing for domain holders located outside Armenia.

At this point I've got about a dozen or more domain names for various sub-sections of the site; in the interest of economic expediency I am going to let them all expire and consolidate everything under one lone .com (recognized and affordable, at under $10 per year) domain name.  That'll also make it easier for search engines to find everything on Superman Through the Ages! if it's all under one domain name.

I'm currently updating all the internal links in the site so that it'll work; then I'll update the graphics (URLs on banners, etc) to match the actual site domain name; then maybe track down and repair all the links in the forum.

I was going to announce all this in the Technical Queries section of the forum, but your post made for an early explanation.

New official URL will be:

(I know it's a lot to type, but who actually types URLs anymore these days?)

EDIT: Never mind. Found the new link.

I think "Flash" manages to somehow combine the fun, upbeat spirit of the Silver Age, Infantino era with a more modern darkness, which is great.  So many superhero shows and movies skew too far into "gritty realism" out of -- I can only assume -- embarrassment over the source material.  Flash is the only one I've seen to get the balance right.

That said, the "romance and relationships" stuff is obviously aimed at a younger, "Glee" crowd and doesn't do much for me.  And there is one glaring problems that takes the wind out of the whole thing, when I let myself think about it.  To wit: how is it okay for a private group of, essentially, vigilantes like Barry and his STAR friends to incarcerate super-villains without benefit of trial, in a secret prison not subject to any regulation or oversight?  How are the prisoners fed when those doors are sealed tight?  How do they go to the bathroom?  Do they wear the same clothes forever?  Do they have cable?  Books?  Are they allowed to exercise?  I'd like to see this addressed at some point; there should be Hell to pay when the world gets wind of what's going on.

I haven't gotten around to "Gotham," or even "Arrow," which has some links to "Flash."  I kind of doubt I ever will, but you never know.

I watch both Gotham and The Flash...I'm not sure why I watch Gotham though.

The Flash is just so much more super hero than Arrow, and I've always loved The Flash...

So here is the one that has grown on me. I watched the first season and I was a little ho-hum through most of it. Then (particularly now into the 2nd season) it is a show I look forward to. I only have time to watch a couple of shows.

Its connection to Batman was the obvious draw at first, but now I don't think about Batman at all. The main hero (as usual) is the thing in the show that has captured me. (Ben McKenzie.)

Jim Gordon is such a great, old-fashioned, two-fisted good-guy! I love it.

Yes, this WILL be the man who'll (when he matures) clean up the cesspit that is Gotham, and the one guy in authority who can see eye-to-eye with Batman, most of the time.

The main character (and actor) carries it for me. He's great. Growing on me more and more.

But then this show has casting gold. I could mention the Penguin - Robin Lord Taylor - definitely the standout. The young actor who plays Bruce Wayne: gold. There are maybe one or two others I could mention.

It's kept from turning completely into Sopranos-Lite because it actually has a good guy (who can think and fight), and is the white against the grey.

I guess all shows jump the shark eventually, if they go on for long enough. In most of my favourite shows (not many, admittedly) usually the third season is great, then look out, because the fourth is one too many.

Flash? I started out liking it. Now I don't, much. Apart from the Professor Zoom / wheelchair-bound mentor mystery, which isn't enough to sustain the rest of it for me.

Which suddenly reminds me... I should mention Gotham.

It was a fun show until it went off the rails at the end.  I have to confess I don't remember a lot about it now, except for one episode where Clark's childhood in Smallville comes up, and at one point the camera pans over to the treehouse he'd built in the backyard, with a sign on it that said, in a kid's scrawled hand, "Fortress of Solitude."  That always gave me warm fuzzies.

I felt pretty warmly about Teri Hatcher, too, but that was a different kind of warmth.

I think I taped the whole series on VHS when it was first on, and I probably still have the tapes.  But I don't have a VCR anymore. =:-0  Pretty sure L&C is available on Amazon Prime, though.  Maybe I'll take another look.

Word is Dean Cain (and Helen Slater) have been cast in the new "Supergirl" show.  No idea whether I'll bother with it, yet, but I'm really enjoying the new "Flash," which features fellow 90s hero John Wesley Shipp in a supporting role.  You know you're old when the actors being cast for the "nostalgia" factor were on "old shows" you watched when you weren't even all that young.
