Even though a few episodes were cheese, I loved this show.
This show was so special to me when I was a kid, because I felt like they were finally making something for the kids who were different, and before this show there wasn't really anything like it. John Wesley Shipp's flash had this way of speaking that always made you feel alright. It was a different time. There were a lot of kids who needed it, and I was definitely one of them. Of course the networks had no idea what to do with it - even Batman was a fluke at the time, because comic books were still considered something specifically for nerds - and liking nerd things meant being uncool. Now after 25 years, comic book movies rule entertainment. I gave it 8 stars out of ten, because there were some cheesy moments. It comes off very G-Rated these days, but we shouldn't measure our shows by how dark and violent they can be, because people are forgetting about the goodness and kindness that comes from the natural desire to do good. The flash is a kind person who respects the people around him, and I'm happy to see that the 2014 Flash series with Grant Gustin is carrying the torch in not only giving us another flash, but paying homage to the 90's version by including John Wesley Shipp. I hope to see more of the 90's cast make appearances as time goes on.
