I think people are very mean about Flash... yes, everything bad about it is true now, but in its day it was quite something, and there was nothing to match it. It became a lumbering beast, and while I’m not shedding any tears at its passing, nevertheless I’m prepared to give it its due for what it was in its heyday.
