Alright, something has to be wrong with me. This happened with Loki in the Avengers and now here in the Flash. I love the villain. Now, it’s no spoiler for me to tell you that Dr. Wells is a villain. The very first episode, we see that he is a major sketchball, but despite his villainous actions, he’s my favorite character. And it sucks because if he didn’t have that mysterious villainous side, I don’t believe I would like him as much. But I mean I also like him for his good qualities. He is majorly intelligent and for the most part, he has a calm personality and has this calculating persona when he’s thinking, which is what he’s usually doing. I love it. I love him. Maybe I’m just falling into his manipulative tendencies just like I fell for Loki…but just like Loki…I don’t care.
SO, even though I just started Flash the other day, I finished it last night. Why is that? Because I LOVE it, and the only reason I stopped my binge last night was because Netflix doesn’t have Season 2. (Honestly, the travesty! >.<) Did I still love it as much as I did after the first couple episodes? Yes! I will admit towards the middle, it started to get a little slow because they needed to drag the major plot line out for the entire season. Obviously those little villain face-offs Flash had every episode did not need to be dragged out, lol. But all in all, I found the story to be quite engaging and maintain a decent amount of unpredictability to prevent boredom. The crossovers with Arrow were actually done well in a manner that actually made me appreciate those characters. And the drama. The drama was maintained at an agreeable and manageable level! Yes, the characters had their moments, but it wasn’t like every single episode. It was fantastic to see Team Flash work together and grow together. I swear, I could also see the acting improve as the episodes progressed. The characters are great—people I’d love to meet in real life. (Actually, I’ve been daydreaming about hanging out with the Flash crew for a few days now. I’m not sure what sort of science and magic I’ll have to perform to make that happen though…) Barry is absolutely adorable and I love his spirit. He has a great group of people to support him and their quirks are just as fun.
Flash Season 1 did not feel like a waste of my time. I thoroughly enjoyed it and looked forward to watching every episode. I can’t wait to see what Season 2 brings to the table. And don’t you worry, I will find a way to watch it. I MUST. Also I do not and will not apologize for my love for the character of Harrison Wells. He’s still my favorite. XD
