I have been a huge fan of this show since it started but I have to admit the last couple of the seasons have showed that this how has dipped in quality and this the same this season, it was good but not particularly memorable. The premise of the season sees Barry & Iris's daughter from the future Nora return to present day to help Team Flash stop a serial killer called Cicada. Grant Gustin has become famous for his role as Barry Allen/The Flash and he does a really good job this season. I always feel like he strikes a good balance between drama, humor and action and it makes him a very complete character, He is still a likeable character but he also has depth to him which I feel like some of the DC heroes lack. The supporting cast is a mixed bag, Candice Patton is good as Iris West Allen, she has had a mixed bag over time on the show but I thought her character did a good job and fit her role well. A lot of the drama of the show dealt with her relationship with Nora and mostly it was good stuff. Also Cisco and Caitlin are some of the best supporting characaters in any show. However, there were some weak perfromances this scene, the character of Nora was a mixed bag, I cared about her sometimes, but she was so overused this season and at times really felt like she was the main character and became really overbearing. Tom Cavanagh plays another version of Harrisson Wells and for me this was just one too many, I enjoyed playing the difeerent versions of the character at the beginning but now it has become too much and I didn't really care about him this season. Then we get to the villain Cicada who was easilly the weakest villain so far on the show in my opinion, he was just so boring and dull, his motivation could have been played better by a better actor. The story was interesting, dealing with more time travel then the previous season and I liked the way the show jumped between the present and future and how they affected each other. However, this show suffers from having too many characters on it so it tries to do so much with them but ends up cutting some of the characters short. The script is okay, with some really good drama this season, though I felt this season definitley stepped back from the humour to allow for this serious tone which worked to a certain extent but did take something from the show. The one thing I have always thought is that this show looks great and I stick with that this season, the fight scenes are unique and different every week and the effects hold up to aid in the experience. Overall this is a good season of this show and if you are a fna of the show is still just about a worthy addition to the collection.
