At age 11 Barry Allen witnesses how his mother Nora is killed by a supernatural being, a yellow flash. His father Henry Allen is convicted for the crime and Barry comes into a foster family, determined to solve the mystery of his mother’s murder and prove his father’s innocence.
Fourteen years later Barry works as a forensic scientist for the Central City Police Department, when suddenly an explosion of the S.T.A.R. Labs particle accelerator leads to him being struck by lightning. When he awakes from his coma nine months later, Barry finds out that he is able to move at superhuman speed and decides to use his powers to fight the crime in Central City and search for the true murder of his mother.

Yay or nay?

Being based on the eponymous DC comic series, The Flash is a must-see for fans of comic book adaptations. Unlike the majority of comic heroes that are currently all over our TV screens, Barry Allen is not the dark, gritty kind of superhero, but rather a charming, down-to-earth kind of guy, who often enough reminds of a little puppy. The great cast, strong character relationships, intricate plot lines and the mystery around Nora Allen’s murder make The Flash a highly entertaining and addictive show that is simply a treat to watch.
