Barry Allen wakes up 9 months after he was struck by lightning and discovers that the bolt gave him the power of super speed. With his new team and powers, Barry becomes "The Flash" and fights crime in Central City.


I was a little bit hesitant about this in the beginning. The Flash has always been in my Top 3 DC characters and I wasn’t entirely convinced that The CW could do it justice.

Boy was I wrong!

This, for over half of the season, has been my favourite new show of the 2014/15 season.

Every episode from the beginning just got better and better and would always leave me wanting the next week to hurry up and get here.

The cast is amazing. The three that I always enjoy watching is Grant Gustin, Danielle Panabaker and Carlos Valdes; they are all good to watch on their own but when the three of them work together is always awesome to watch.

The relationships are another thing I love about this show, most notably between Barry and Joe; the friendship between the two and also the father/son moments, especially in the final episode. Another one would have to be Wells and Cisco in particular towards the end of the season, I actually believe that Wells genuinely liked Cisco and regrets the way things had to go.

The range of guest stars and characters throughout the season, including the cast from Arrow, were awesome but Robbie Amell and Victor Garber as Firestorm were the highlight for me.

Another highlight and probably my favourite moments of the whole show; GRODD! Who would think that any show could bring in a telepathic gorilla into a show and not make it look like a joke. I really hope we see a lot more of Grood in Season 2!

My least favourite character would have to be Iris. Just really didn’t get into watching the character on the screen but the moment when I disliked her the most was, I think it was episode 21 or 22, when Barry told her Wells killed his mother and her reaction was all about Eddie. I get it, your boyfriend has been kidnapped but your best friend has finally found out who murdered his mother and all she could concentrate on was her boyfriend and Barry’s lies.

I love all the DC Comics references throughout the season from Ferris Air, Coast City and Jay Garrick but the awesome thing about these easter eggs is that they don't paint a neon sign towards it saying 'Look here!', it just there for those who know their stuff.

I am EAGERLY looking forward to Season Two! For me, it’s too long to wait!

If you’re not watching this – GET ON IT!
