Barry Allen, a forensic crime scene assistant for Central City Police Department, is struck by lightning during a storm that is created after a particle accelerator from S.T.A.R. Labs explodes. In a coma for nine months, Barry awakens in S.T.A.R. Labs, having been placed in the care of his scientist idol, Dr. Harrison Wells, along with his assistants, Dr. Caitlin Snow and Cisco Ramon . Barry quickly learns that he can move at extraordinary speeds, and that there were other "metahumans" created from the explosion. One of them, Clyde Mardon, is robbing banks with his ability to control the weather. In order to stop Clyde, Barry is outfitted with a suit that can withstand his high speed of movement. He tracks down Mardon and with the help of Detective West, who learns of Barry's abilities, Barry is able to stop Mardon. With his new powers, Barry vows to find out who killed his mother when he was a child, believing him to be another metahuman who has similar abilities of speed as he. ...

Great Spin off from an Arrow Character.
7 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

When watching the Arrow this guy popped up in a few episodes, he was a real likable character and actor, then suddenly a scene in a lab and no more was he seen. Left with a wait for him to return it seemed he had maybe been written out and another good character lost from the Arrow.

Fortunately this was Arrow's loss and The Flash's gain. :) In the first episode there is some visual help to connect the two.

I scored this 10 because the Character is much easier to relate too, and a much more likable person. This has the feel good factor of Smallville, and a slight taste of the Arrow, though not the over kill and sometimes violent fight scenes. So will be more appealing to Men, Women and Families.

It is a real treat for all that this has made it pass its pilot stage.
