Lots of fun
Verified purchase
I enjoyed this from the start. Stays very in the spirit of comic books, sporting soap opera style dramatics, but exciting totally ridiculous plots. I dislike the gay virtue signalling here as it seems needlessly in your face, but the main characters keep you hooked. Barry Allen is fun to watch as he sorts out right from wrong while all around him smarter people screw up by not caring about such things. Dr. Wells is a treat as a classic INTJ hero/villain. I can't help but admire his relentless goal-drivenness. Cisco is fun to watch, because we inventor people just wish we could whup up whatever we want like that! Caitlyn adds some balance and dry dark humor to anchor the clan, all the while taking care of those nearest to her. Joe is such a teddy bear - with TEETH - that you just wish you had a guy like that looking over your shoulder, too. Then comes Iris with the killer smile. Hard not to like her even though you probably wouldn't if she wasn't so attractive. Bottom line, the whole thing is a romp and good medicine if you want a simple fantasy with likeable characters.

First Rate Superhero Fun!
Verified purchase
When I heard “The Flash” was getting a TV series on the CW I had my doubts. Friends told me DC Comics was doing an excellent job with Arrow, but I never got around to watching it. I went into “The Flash” with cautious optimism. What I saw far exceeded my expectations!

CW clearly isn’t working on a budget comparable to some of the other big hits, but for the resources they have I feel “The Flash” goes above and beyond bringing this fantastical concept of the Fastest Man Alive to the small screen. Episodes are (for the most part) well produced. There's some awkward scenes and performances in the first two or three episodes (that may cause an unintentional laugh), but once you feel the cast and showrunners hitting their stride the show really speeds past those initial missteps.

Naturally, the fights between Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and his superhuman arch enemies are one of the series' primary draws , but The Flash never stoops to relying on a "villain of the week" formula. The overarching narrative about Barry mastering his powers and discovering the identity of “The Man in the Yellow Suit” who killed his mother and resulted in the wrongful incarceration of his father, and Barry's personal relationship with friends and peers effectively bridges episodes and kept me yearning for more.

Tonally the series is most comparable to Sam Raimi’s original Spider-Man trilogy, with forensics specialist Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) looking an awful lot like Peter Parker. There’s just a giddy sense of joy to the series that seems to embody why we all read comic books growing up.

Speaking of growing up, the showrunners were kind enough to include throwbacks to the short-lived 1990 The Flash TV series with John Wesley Shipp as Barry’s father. Mark Hamill (Star Wars) also drops by to reprise his role as The Trickster from the original series (and as DC fans know, Mark Hamill’s Trickster made way for his iconic run as The Joker in Batman: The Animated Series and the Arkham video games).

If you’re looking for an engaging superhero show that offers fun characters, engaging conflicts, and just the right amount of comic cheese than I’d highly recommend sitting down with The Flash.

Wonderful Series - Good Enough for Anyone Who Enjoys Good Writing and character Developement
Verified purchase
First let me say that except for Superman, who I have always had a secret fetish for, I'm not really into the superhero/comic genre. So the fact that I absolutely love this series with all my heart is saying a lot. I think a lot of that has to do with the main character; who is possibly the sweetest, most lovable geeky goofball the world has ever seen. Also the supporting cast is exemplary, and the writing is stellar. Tom Cavanagh is an excellent subtle villain, and I'm glad he returns for the second season. It wouldn't be the same without him. Also it's wonderful that the cast is not exclusively white people; which is often the case in genre fiction. This is something I hope we see more of in film and television. It seems to be happening more and more and that gives me hope for the world. And we are talking major characters, here. Also, the fact that one of those major characters is Jewish, but not the stereotype that we usually see is fantastic! Besides all that; you get wonderful, engaging stories week after week and the cross pollination with Arrow isn't anything to sneeze at, either. All in all, a wonderful show that can be enjoyed by anyone, even if you're not into the whole superhero/people in tights thing. It also seems that they've done a wonderful job incorporating elements from the comic books for those fans. Though I'm not one of those myself, I've watched a number of You Tube reviews which seem to indicate that the writers are doing a good job of giving the nod to those origins, as well. I think this is important, even for those of us who aren't into the comic books. This first season was spectacular on many levels, and the next season doesn't seem to be falling short, either. Also, look for the new series; "Legends of Tomorrow," which starts in late January 2016.

An Exciting, Fast-Paced Superhero Fantasy
Verified purchase
This is the best new show on TV, period! (err, exclamation mark, actually) It's fun, exciting, and suspenseful. While people who don't enjoy superhero fantasy might find some of the situations hard to believe, some of the characters feel the same way and express their doubt in sometimes hilarious ways. The ones who will enjoy this show the most will be the ones who join character Cisco Ramon in his excitement when discovering the wondrous developments in this "new" world of super powers. As the first season develops, we learn that there is an overarching mystery surrounding the events that resulted in dozens of people gaining super powers and when the cause is revealed, one of the shows best characters becomes one of the most interesting and mysterious villains ever to grace TV.

I have so much fun watching this show that I instantly forgive some of its missteps. The romantic subplot is all over the place, for one. But as of this writing, the season is not complete. The showrunner and the writers have earned my trust that these miscues will work themselves out in the end. One of my favorite things about this show is how it is structured like a comic book series, with the seeds of future episodes thrown into the current episode so that the plot of the entire season moves forward smoothly without the start/stops common in other episodic dramas. This keeps the show from having to introduce new concepts at the beginning of every episode. It can just jump right into the action from the first scene.

Nine Years of the Flash and "Crisis on Infinite Earths"
Verified purchase
Dr. Ali Fant, WB5WAF

This first episode of Flash contains an abundance of possible tie ins to other DC Universe characters and to upcoming CW television series..

For example, I like the foreshadowing of the epic DC series "Crisis on Infinite Earths" portrayed in the final future headline seen by Dr. Wells in the pilot episode. "Flash Disappears from Earth in Crisis." The date of the newspaper was 2024 -- nine years into the future. I assume the producers expect a series run of "Flash" at least as long as "Smallville."

"Crisis on Infinite Earths" collapsed the many alternative DC universe story lines into one. In that crisis, the Flash encounters the godlike "Speedforce" in his own alternate futures. This would tie in nicely with the new "Supergirl" series because the Supergirl (Kara) character dies in the Crisis. Check out the audio novel or the original compilation on Amazon for a preview of the next nine years of the Flash series.

BUY IT FOR THE FIGURE ALONE , if your a true fan of Flash .
Verified purchase
The CW Flash , season one Blu-Ray with the bonus figure .

All I can say is amazing , I love the show and love that the Blu-Ray is nice Quality . I didn't like that Amazon Prime packaged it with no protection but that wasn't a aspect of the Blu-Ray . The Extras are amazing watch the show first because what I love about the Commentary is that they talk about the whole series and then how they are going about season 2 .

THE FIGURE !!!!!!!
Get this Blu-Ray set for the figure alone . Its not one of the Dc Icons its the real deal DC Collectible that has red eyes and tight joints . I was terrified when I opened my box seeing no packing protection and opening up the Blu-ray box and the figures packaging was smashed . But the figure is in great condition and is painted amazing . If you have seen the show you know why his eyes are red to hide his true identity . This is not the figure that will be coming out later in the year . This figure has a different Head sculpt and no accessories , but he is red eye and the sculpt is reversed from flash and the head is a different sculpt .

The Fastest Man Alive?
Verified purchase
The series introduces everyone to Barry Allen, who is knocked into a coma for several months due to an accident at S.T.A.R. Labs. When he wakes, he discovers that he has special powers to run very fast and decides to use those abilities to solve his mom's murder and to help the citizens of Central City as meta-humans start to become a problem for the city. If there's one Arrowverse series you're looking to purchase, add this one to your list. The series sixth season debuts this fall and this is a great time to get into this series as the fifth season is due to be released soon.

Incredible, fun, fast moving show. What a comic book show should be.
Verified purchase
Perhaps the best new TV show this year. The Spinoff from CW's Arrow was one that I wondered how they could possibly make work? I mean The Flash is kind of a one note comic character. He runs fast. Heck that is the limitation that plagued the old 90's John Wesley Ship take on the show. Add to that that at least during its first season Arrow had tried to tack away from the properties more comic book and SF origins, at least in the begining, and I was Skeptical. Well color me blown away. Rather than hide from the properties origins the show embraced them in a way I never would have thought possible. This is the Silver and Bronze Age lovingly brought to screen in a way that the most non comic fans can appreciate and fall in love with. The evolving story is gripping. The individual performances are superb. The supporting cast bringing their A game. And the layer upon layer of clever references to the sources just make the true nerds squeal with joy. A happy retreat from the dark violent excesses of the DC movies. This show is everything we could possibly want in bringing a comic story to life. Dear Warner Brothers, how come these people are not making your movies? This is the best most exciting and truest take on your IP since Bruce Timm and Paul Dini gave us Batman TAS.
