I LOVE this show. As a die-hard Marvel fan, it was an unexpected obsession for me. The show follows Barry Allen, a CSI technician in Central City. After a scientific experiment gone wrong, he is turned into the fastest man alive, a.k.a. The Flash. With the help of "Team Flash," Barry battles other metahumans throughout Central City. The beauty of this show is that it does not take itself too seriously. It is easy for superhero shows to get carried away; so far, this has not happened with The Flash. The Flash is part of CW's Arrow-verse, which now includes Arrow, The Flash and DC's Legends of Tomorrow. Each show has its strengths and weaknesses, but this show is so much fun that it's easy to overlook any possible weaknesses. Barry battles a giant gorilla, Captain Cold, the Weather Wizard and Reverse-Flash. Each battle brings new challenges, new nicknames, and new weapons. As long as you are willing to embrace the cheese-factor related with all superhero shows, you will not be disappointed.
"CSI investigator Barry Allen is endearingly book-smart, somewhat awkward late and as a result of a scientific experiment gone awry the fastest man alive! He's The Flash, zigzagging through the action-packed new series from the creative team behind Arrow and based on the supersonic DC Comics character. With his life shadowed by his mother's murder and his father wrongly convicted of the crime, Barry finds that his newfound power of super speed grants him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel."
