may argue that The Flash is the best of the new DC superhero
shows (which include Arrow, Supergirl, Gotham,
and Legends of Tomorrow - all reviewed elsewhere on this
site), and they might be right.
full of humor, lovable characters, outstanding special effects, and
faithfulness to the source material, the Grant Gustin-led series has
certainly captured a key audience of fans old and young alike.
Improving upon the first season, The Complete Second Season
(2015 - 2016) has us introduced to new heroes and villains as The
Flash faces off against time traveling black masked adversary Zoom
and others. The show stars Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Danielle
Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh and original Warner/CBS TV
series Flash actor John Wesley Shipp - who here plays Barry
highlight that fans found this season on the show is that Filmmaker
Kevin Smith came in and directed an episode, The Runaway Dinosaur,
in which his famed co-star Jason Mewes (Clerks) makes a quick cameo.
For fans of Arrow, we also see several crossover characters
throughout the season, with the famed crossover episode also included
in the set. My favorite character this season is King Shark, who
looks as good as any digital character in feature DC films.
in the fictional Central City, Barry Allen (Gustin) is a young man
who has been given unique ability as a result of getting struck by
lightning. Aided by a group of talented and intelligent friends at
S.T.A.R. Labs, Barry becomes known as The Flash. Soon after his
emergence, he encounters other meta-humans including Reverse Flash,
King Shark, Gorilla Grodd, and more straight from the pages of DC

is a must have for DC comics fans and great continued introduction to
new audiences to the character of The Flash, who will be played by
actor Ezra Miller in the upcoming film Justice League and then in his
own spin-off film. Gustin more than holds his own here.
