I was pretty hesitant to start watching the Flash after my little stint with Arrow last summer. I had somewhat of a love/hate relationship with Arrow. There were so many things I couldn’t stand, but Flash was quite a pleasant surprise. First of all, I much like the main character (yeah, Oliver Queen is obnoxious in my opinion). Secondly, there isn’t annoying drama! Yesss! I’m so happy to be at episode ten and be not finding any ridiculous or excessive drama. Thirdly, there isn’t an annoying repetitive opening sequence. I am SO grateful Barry switches up how he introduces each episode.
Flash is fun! Barry Allen is ABSOLUTELY adorable. I love his character and the actor is quite cute too. 😉 He has a great group of people he runs with who are useful as he chases down the bad guys every episode. And he’s learning. He’s new to his powers and it’s cool to see him grow. Actually there was an episode where Oliver Queen trained Barry. I could not believe how mature and likeable Oliver appeared…Okay, I need to chill before this turns into a rant about Oliver Queen.
Every episode just makes Barry more lovable, and the show has a light-hearted yet serious nature, which is wonderful. While every episode focuses on a new villain, there is also two other mysterious storylines that weave through the series. I’m excited to see how they turn out.
I mean, I’m not even halfway through the first season (Goodness, I only started yesterday), but I’m really enjoying Flash, and so far have zero complaints. XD
