Looking for a new show to watch? Read about The Flash to see if this show is right for you!
Barry Allen is the fastest man alive (well he thinks so). After a man named Harrison Wells made a particle accelerator that blew up, energy from that detonation was thrown into the sky and that in turn seeded a storm cloud that created a lightning bolt that struck Barry Allen (The Flash). Now we don’t want to give to much away, but explaining The Flash is like explaining a 50 page essay--there is so much to tell and you do not know where to start!
When Barry was a child his mom was murdered by a mystery man in a yellow suit. The cops blamed Barry’s dad for the murder and his dad got a life sentence in prison, called Iron Heights. Barry was 11 when he was adopted by his best friend Iris Ann West and her father Joseph "Joe" West. When Barry got struck by lightning he went into a coma for 9 months and when he woke up he met his two future best friends, Cisco Ramon and Caitlin Snow.
Overall in our opinion The Flash is an amazing T.V. show and if you’re into superhero/sci-fi shows, we say watch it. Also the actors that portray the show are Grant Gustin that plays Barry Allen, Candice Patton that plays Iris Ann West, Tom Cavanagh that plays all Harrison Wells, ( yes there are multiple Harrison Wells) Jesse L. Martin that plays Joe West, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon, and Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow. If you’re interested in watching The Flash you can watch it on Netflix and or on an app called The CW. If you are all caught up, then you can watch The Flash on channel 11 at 8:00 pm on Tuesdays.
