The Flash: The Complete First Season Blu-Ray

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 9/16/15

I've loved this show since the first episode! Although it's technically a spin-off from "Arrow," it has a lot more fun and humor than the other show. I loved the old 90's show "Flash" as well, but this one is even better because of the humor.

The actor who plays Barry () is very cute and funny, and he's just really likable.  The superhero Flash is not some big muscle-bound hero type, so he's perfect as the young scientist guy who becomes a reluctant hero.  All of the cast is really good. I was sad to see two of my favorites killed off at the end of the season (I won't spoil it for you and tell you who), even though I understand why it had to be done. I love the actor who plays Joe (), Barry's surrogate dad, from when he was on "Law & Order," and he's even better on this show.

I only have two complaints about the show. First, they had Roger Howarth on for a few episodes and then he's gone. He's an outstanding actor, so it would have been nice to see more of him in primetime (he's on "General Hospital" during the day). I don't know why he hasn't gotten better work in primetime. He's not only a great dramatic actor, but very funny as well. He should be starring in his own superhero show!

Secondly, there was an episode toward the end of the season that I didn't like ("Rogue Air'). I thought the heroes acted really dumb in this episode. Otherwise, though, the rest of the show has been flawless. I'm glad to get them on DVD so I can watch them as often as I'd like! I can't wait for the new show "Legends of Tomorrow" as well!

As usual, Warner Brothers has packed the DVD with tons of fun extras and features (listed below). You should definitely watch this and get ready for season 2! Great show.

Central City forensic investigator Barry Allen is, always charming and – as a result of a scientific experiment gone awry – now the fastest man alive! He’s The Flash, zigzagging through the action-packed new series from the creative team behind Arrow and based on the supersonic DC Comics character.
