Barry Allen is a Central City police forensic scientist with a reasonably happy life, despite the childhood trauma of a mysterious red and yellow being 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 STAR 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 (

Then an accident made me the impossible. To the outside world, I'm just an ordinary forensic scientist, but secretly I use my speed to fight crime and find others like me, and one day I'll find who killed my mother and get justice for my father.

Fun show!!
13 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just want to put it out there that this show is absolutely entertaining, and I'm pretty sure that if it was completely focused on going into the science, it would be too drawn out. It works perfectly how it is, because it's not just about the science aspect of how a man can run that fast. It's a lot more optimistic and cheerful than Arrow and a lot of other shows that are on nowadays. I like how different it is.

I like all of the actors, and the show is really coming together. I'm excited to see where the story line is heading. I love the chemistry that Grant Gustin and Jesse L. Martin have. I also appreciate how most of the actors are fresh faces. It gives a new and exciting perspective on the show, because as we're learning about the characters, we are also learning how awesome these actors can act, and it automatically makes the show more interesting because the actors are so unpredictable.

I wouldn't say anyone is wrong if they don't like it, because everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but at least give it a chance, because this show has real potential.

Overall, this show is fun and quirky, and I really like the development that is taking place. It's quickly becoming one of my favorite TV shows.
