The Flash: The Complete Second Season

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 11/15/16

I watch this show every week and never miss it, along with "DC's Legends of Tomorrow," "Arrow," "Supergirl," and "Gotham!" I'm a sucker for any comic book shows or series, especially great ones like this.

What I love about "Flash" is that it's really fun and bright.  "Arrow" is good, but it's pretty dark a lot of times.  "The Flash" has a lot more humor and fun.  There's tragedy, sure, but it's not as much.  They keep it more fun.

At the center of that fun is Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), a cute young man who just seems very young and amiable. Everyone likes him. It would be hard not to. He has a bit of tragedy about him, like most heroes seem to, but he has an optimism that keeps him from being too tragic. He leads his friends with this can-do attitude. You might almost say that's what makes him a hero.

They did a great job with this first season of introducing the characters, both heroes and villains. As a comic book fan, it's always hard for me when they make changes, as they always do.  This whole particle accelerator thing was not around when I was reading "The Flash" comics, nor was it in the first "Flash" series.  Also, Flash was never really in a team, aside from the Justice League. He just went on his own, like Superman. Nowadays, though, the heroes always have to have a team. I guess it makes it more interesting for the TV viewers.

I'm not saying this show is perfect; if you watch it carefully, there are quite a few times when you can see plot holes or contrivances, or things that just plain don't make any sense. However, if you just like it for fun, action, humor, and great characters, it's worth watching. Also, the show gets darker in this second season.  You're been warned!

The DVD has many great features. Check it out!
