Storyline

Barry Allen is a Central City police forensic scientist with a reasonably happy life, despite the childhood trauma of a mysterious red and yellow lightning killing his mother and framing his father. All that changes when a massive particle accelerator accident leads to Barry being struck by lightning in his lab. Coming out of coma nine months later, Barry and his new friends at S.T.A.R labs find that he now has the ability to move at superhuman speed. Furthermore, Barry learns that he is but one of many affected by that event, most of whom are using their powers for evil. Determined to make a difference, Barry dedicates his life to fighting such threats, as The Flash. While he gains allies he never expected, there are also secret forces determined to aid and manipulate him for their own agenda. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia

Both Candice Patton (Iris West), and Shantel Vansanten (Patty Spivot), played in One Tree Hill before their role in The Flash. See more »

Goofs

Whenever Barry uses his super speed from a standing start, there is a gust of wind that blows in the opposite direction (for instance, if he superspeeds to the left, there is an airburst that blows to the right). Engaging his super speed in this manner would cause a suction effect creating an airburst in the same direction he's moving in. See more »

Quotes

[Season 2 opening]
Barry Allen: My name is Barry Allen and I am the fastest man alive. To the outside world, I am an ordinary forensic scientist, but secretly with the help of my friends in S.T.A.R. Labs, I fight crime and find other meta-humans like me. I hunted down the man who killed my mother, but in doing so, I opened up our world to new threats, and I am the only one fast enough to stop them. I am The Flash.

Worth Watching. Recommended.
1 May 2017 | by See all my reviews

Without a doubt, The Flash is an accomplished series with great writing, direction and acting. It does seem like it was made by fans, for fans and regardless whether you like superhero stories or not, or maybe you're a sci-fi fan or not, the core of the series is the great story-telling and the characters; you will enjoy it.

Anchoring the ensemble cast is Grant Gustin who has quite the acting range; the man has talent and he wears the role of Barry Allen with great panache. Other main cast members are equally strong, with Tom Canavagh (Harrison Wells) filling in multiple roles throughout 3 seasons, Jesse L Martin (Det. Joe West) as the father figure, Carlos Veldes (Cisco) and Danielle Panabaker (Caitlyn) as the adorable nerds of Team Flash.

But the driving force of the series are the writers, who somehow crammed decades worth of Flash comic material into 3 seasons so far with near masterful execution, focusing the theme of what it means to be a hero; the tragedy of it, the choices made and their unintended consequences - all while traveling through time and dimensions.

Commenting on other reviewers that gave this show a low score; true, this isn't Breaking Bad, nor is it Game of Thrones. Quite possibly these reviewers are looking for something along the lines of Nolan's Dark Knight which will not work for The Flash.

As it stands, The Flash is a great superhero series in it's own right. It is fluffy but it has substance. Thoroughly recommended. And yeah, Supergirl is garbage.
