The Flash

The CW 2014

After a particle accelerator causes a freak storm, CSI Investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and falls into a coma. Months later he awakens with the power of super speed, granting him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Though initially excited by his newfound powers, Barry is shocked to discover he is not the only "meta-human" who was created in the wake of the accelerator explosion -- and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Barry partners with S.T.A.R. Labs and dedicates his life to protect the innocent. For now, only a few close friends and associates know that Barry is literally the fastest man alive, but it won't be long before the world learns what Barry Allen has become...The Flash.

This show has nothing exceptional about it at all. It's pretty lame and cookie cutter. Disappointing.

Awesome show.

My son favorite show

This is what all superhero shows should be... it's fun. It's enjoyable. It embraces the lunacy of comic books without being a complete farce. It even manages to hit high emotional notes. Grant Gustin is just a delight as Barry and Jesse L. Martin is a national treasure.

Teens will love it -- I didn't...

So in this show, the meta-humans mostly received their powers by accident. At this point in time we have seen 81 of them. Of the 81, 48 have been evil, 6 have been evil-ish, and 27 have been good. This puts the percentage of the evil population of meta-humans at 59.3%. The current population of america that have been incarcerated for violent crimes is 0.07%. That means that meta-humans are a little under 900x times as likely to be evil compared to the rest of the population. Which is far above any potential statistical blip. As far as I know there is no reason given in the show for the massive spike in evilness. Many of them are criminals before hand, or as soon as they gain powers decide to start robbing banks just because they can. At this point i'm surprised they give any new meta-humans the benefit of the doubt instead of just imprisoning them all forever.

Stopped watching it during the second season because it got worse and worse. Shame because it could have been great. I've read at Wikipedia what the story would be for the next episodes and season and damn that's even worse. What kind of drugs were the writers using on writing this?

avatar

First two seasons are (almost) fine, if you like the ArrowVerse / DC Universe. More childish than Arrow, a little more credible than SuperGirl... However passing the second half of the second season, it becomes kinda stupid and boring / repetitive in its narrative.

avatar

This show started off fine, but nothing crazy going. I was interested in watching it because flash has a really rich story and spinoffs in comics and in DC animated movies, even the Justice League movie flash wasn't bad, what I want to say is that flash is a character which is really difficult to ruin. Yet, for some reason, this series made it all so bad, instead of giving us a rich story with each episode they converted this series into a cash grab and each episode feels like a filler at this point. I have to abandon this now. GG.

it was good at the beginning but then it got really boring
