In a freak accident, police crime scene investigator Barry Allen is struck by lightning and doused in chemicals. Barry discovers that this accident had given him powers, able to move at nearly the speed of sound. With the help of STAR Labs scientist Tina McGee, he learns to control his powers...but when his older brother Jay (a motorcycle cop) is killed in the line of duty, Barry asks Tina to make him a special costume that can withstand the rigors of hyperspeed travel. He sets forth to clean up the streets of Central City as The Flash.

Did You Know?
The series had a hard time attracting ratings as it first aired on Thursdays at 8 against The Cosby Show
(1984) and The Simpsons
(1989), who were having a highly hyped ratings duel. CBS moved the series to 8:30, an unusual time slot for a hour long drama and aired a promotional campaign to remind viewers to switch over "After Bill, After Bart." The move didn't work, and the series was relegated to Saturday, and eventually in a last ditch effort to try to build interest for a possible second season was moved to Friday. See more
