Barry Allen: I made a big mistake. I just couldn't take it anymore, you know? What happened with Zoom, my dad dying, my mother's death, me becoming The Flash. All of it. I wanted a new life. I wanted to start over. And that's what I did. But somehow I-I made things worse.

not happy, no longer to watch
13 October 2016 | by conniecoburgSee all my reviews

I have decided to no longer watch the flash...too much lovey dovey stuff, too confusing with the differing time lines and overall CRAP. BARRY/Flash is not DARK enough... he needs to be darker, tougher and with a touch of nastiness or have a bit a condescending remarks, but with limited humour...smarminess perhaps. I am still watching the arrow and supergirl(for now)..but who knows how long for...I do like the legends of tomorrow and I do love RIP (rory from dr who)...but that show will too have it's day...for for the mean time I have deleted the flash from my series link, but am keeping the arrow, supergirl and LOT. With LOT all the characters work well together, as they do with the flash, but the flash is too wimpy.
