The Flash Season 1
1.) Description (Editorial Reviews)
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. Barry quickly discovers he’s not the only “metahuman” created by the explosive disaster, however – and not everyone is using their new power for good. Now, to protect the innocent, Barry and the close friends who know his secret race to combat evildoers in one astonishing adventure after another that come at you like lightning in this fantastic set.

1.)Apparently the CW, in conjunction with Warner Bros. television studios, totally gets DC comics because after completely owning the character Green Arrow, they've gone and created a series about another iconic hero from that universe (i.e. The Flash), that's both true to the source-material and possessing all the sophistication of the big-screen.
So, let's see: superhero origin story... check, crossover scene with "Arrow"... check, foreshadowing for future Central City villains... check, great casting all-around... check, lots of eye-candy FX and exciting action... CHECK!!! Those of us who were able to watch episode 8 from Arrow Season 2 already knew who was gonna play Barry Allen, but actor Grant Gustin seems to have already become the part with just a cameo and a single pilot; and then there's Jesse L. Martin playing Detective Joe West, the guy that basically raised Barry and is also his mentor and biggest supporter at C.C.P.D. (where the latter works in forensic investigation), who, along with Tom Cavanagh as Dr. Harrison Wells, adds a level of drama (and let's face it... maturity) the show may have otherwise lacked. Fans of the DC universe will also recognize a name that has recently become almost legendary in the comic world, i.e. Geoff Johns, who is not only a writer for this series but also a producer for the show thus ensuring it will be a definite source for unmitigated, super-heroic, television magic.
2.)When I heard “The Flash” was getting a TV series on the CW I had my doubts. Friends told me DC Comics was doing an excellent job with Arrow, but I never got around to watching it. I went into “The Flash” with cautious optimism. What I saw far exceeded my expectations!
CW clearly isn’t working on a budget comparable to some of the other big hits, but for the resources they have I feel “The Flash” goes above and beyond bringing this fantastical concept of the Fastest Man Alive to the small screen. Episodes are (for the most part) well produced. There's some awkward scenes and performances in the first two or three episodes (that may cause an unintentional laugh), but once you feel the cast and showrunners hitting their stride the show really speeds past those initial missteps.
3.)Naturally, the fights between Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and his superhuman arch enemies are one of the series' primary draws , but The Flash never stoops to relying on a "villain of the week" formula. The overarching narrative about Barry mastering his powers and discovering the identity of “The Man in the Yellow Suit” who killed his mother and resulted in the wrongful incarceration of his father, and Barry's personal relationship with friends and peers effectively bridges episodes and kept me yearning for more
