Storyline

Barry Allen is a Central City police forensic scientist with a reasonably happy life despite the childhood trauma of a mysterious 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 fighting such threats as The Flash. While he gains allies he never expected, there are also secret forces determined also to aid and manipulate him for their own agenda. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

It was mediocre at best
10 October 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am just very disappointed. I think the ages of the characters really detracted from the general believability. I would have really preferred someone who looked more in their early thirties than someone... like they cast. This is just Flash Smallville. We have already done this before. If you liked Smallville and want Smallville only with The Flash... then sure. But if you were looking for something new and fresh, then this will be tired.

I really preferred the Barry Allen who played him in the 1990 series that was canceled well before it should have... But I guess it was nice seeing him as his dad... It just... ug.

I really felt that if it wasn't for the amazing special effects, there would be nothing holding this series at all.
