Storyline

Barry Allen is a Central City police forensic scientist with a reasonably happy life, despite the childhood trauma of a mysterious red and yellow lightning killing his mother and framing his father. All that changes when a massive particle accelerator accident leads to Barry being struck by lightning in his lab. Coming out of coma nine months later, Barry and his new friends at S.T.A.R labs find that he now has the ability to move at superhuman speed. Furthermore, Barry learns that he is but one of many affected by that event, most of whom are using their powers for evil. Determined to make a difference, Barry dedicates his life to fighting such threats, as The Flash. While he gains allies he never expected, there are also secret forces determined to aid and manipulate him for their own agenda. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Goofs

Whenever Barry uses his super speed from a standing start, there is a gust of wind that blows in the opposite direction (for instance, if he superspeeds to the left, there is an airburst that blows to the right). Engaging his super speed in this manner would cause a suction effect creating an airburst in the same direction he's moving in. See more »

I don't like how The CW is making The Flash look like a real selfish hero that gets a lot of praise
13 September 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

At first, I gave The Flash a try and see how I like the show because the flash was one of my favorite characters from the DC animated Universe and he had heart and good at being funny while helping save the day.The CW version of The Flash played by Glee star Grant Gustin looks like a emo teenager playing as the fastest man alive while fighting against a villain each week that seems like it's ripped off of Power Rangers which got really old by the end of the first season.And even he changed a lot of parts of his friends history because he was being a selfish hero.I hope Ezra Miller portrays more of who the flash really is and not just a selfish hero in a universe where it airs on a teen soap-opera network called The CW.
