Basic Summary – At 11, Barry Allen’s life changed completely when his mother died in a freak accident and his innocent father was convicted of her murder. Now a crime-scene investigator, his dedication to learn the truth about his mother’s death drives him to follow up on every new scientific advancement and urban legend. When his latest obsession — a particle accelerator heralded as a world-changing invention — causes an explosion, it creates a freak storm and Barry is struck by lightning. He awakes from a coma nine months later with the power of superspeed. When he learns that others who have gained powers use them for evil, he dedicates himself to protecting the innocent, while still trying to solve the older mystery.
Wow I’m just blogging at an absurd rate now, but I hear no complaints so let’s go. The Flash – one of many television shows based off comic book superheroes – based of the DC Comic book hero of the same name.
It’s kinda hard to review a show that is still on the air, but from what I have watched so far (because Netflix is amazing) is that this show is something that once you see the first episode, you can’t stop. I don’t know what it is about it. Perhaps it is the cast, or the storyline it follows, or maybe even the comic moments it has almost every episode – but this show definitely knows what it is doing.
If that trailer doesn’t capture your attention, then I don’t think you will like the show. But it is always worth a shot of watching.
