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 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)

Getting Better
10 November 2014 | by (Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

In the beginning, I thought the acting was sub-par and that the story seems pretty boring. I'm warming up to all of the characters, especially Barry. I'm still a little turned off by Caitlin and Iris just seems like another Laurel (there for emotional investment, vapid as a character). Tom Cavanagh is the exception to all of this. I think he's a great character and I would love to see where he develops.

The one thing this show does well - which is what keeps me coming back

  • is that they have the cheesy, awkward humor down perfectly. It's very


true to the comic atmosphere and I think Grant Gustin was a great choice for Barry.

My favorite part of this show so far have been a short guest appearance from Green Arrow and longer guest appearance from my favorite Arrow character. So... as far as The Flash itself, I guess I'm just not invested in anyone, yet. I will watch a few more episodes and see what they can do.
