When a bolt of lightning crashes through a police crime lab, a mix of electrically charged substances bathes chemist Barry Allen, transforming him into the Fastest Man Alive: the Flash (John Wesley Shipp). As the super-fast hero uses his newfound speed to fight crime, only research scientist Dr. Christina McGee (Amanda Pays) knows of the changes that have transformed Barry into his secret identity. In Season 1, the Flash stops a gang of art thieves, saves his ex-policeman father from a vengeful criminal, thwarts a demented electronics genius, and defeats a schemer named the Trickster (guest voice Mark Hamill), among other adventures.

What's not to like?
I remember, I could'nt wait to see this.The pilot was fantastic.(If extremely dated now) Effects - Really good (that red & gold blur was perfect) Costume - Perfect (although it became apparent there was only one, because as the season wore on, the costume lost colour and quite frankly looked battered (just take a look at the pilot,the suit looked new,then it basically aged the next episode. (looked like it needed a paint job) Acting - Not great,but not the worst. Look I'll put it like this,the series could be fantasic at times (The pilot) and other times it could be pants. (The Flash takes down a villian by playing a guitar...errr, fast) All in all things have been done better,but they've been done a hell of a lot worse,so whats not to like?
Talk about old school
Its good to see Tv shows like this from back in the days. Shame there is only one season.
The Flash T.V. Series should bring back some memories and is worth considering more now with the comic franchise in full gear. The effects and subtle humour in each episode tend to overshadow weak storylines. Other cartoon versions may excel in the comic adaptation but no other live action version of the Flash has come close to this. Worth a look but won't be exactly sold in a flash.
