Coming out of coma nine months later, Barry and his new friends at S. That's kind of the whole basis of the series. It seems kids are doing everything in this show. All that changes when a massive particle accelerator accident leads to Barry being struck by lightning in his lab. I think I'll be passing on future episodes. Somehow all those police just overlooked the fact that they carry guns and neither of the villains was wearing a bullet proof vest. We just saw Barry serve coffee to a room full of customers without being detected because he can run really really fast - get it? Run really really fast and take their guns away before they can fire them.
No one seems that impressed that he can run at the speed of light. Barry Allen is a Central City police forensic scientist with a reasonably happy life, despite the childhood trauma of a mysterious red and yellow lightning killing his mother and framing his father. Are we supposed to believe these 20 year olds are running advanced scientific laboratories? There is obviously no one at the writers' table who is an actual scientist. I'll discuss the horror that was the recent Green Lantern movie in that thread. Determined to make a difference, Barry dedicates his life to fighting such threats, as The Flash.
It is apparent by the plethora of scientific errors. But the biggest problem is that the writers continue to ignore the fact that The Flash can run really really fast. Why can Barry run faster than a bullet but not a flagpole being swung at him? I wanted to like this show, I really did. So I am tired of being treated like a moron. Who pays to keep S. I was really looking forward to the 2014 version of The Flash.
The two villains are in the middle of the street and the only way he can defeat them is to get hit by both guns at the same time? Plots are the same each week, save for a different villain. In either case, though, how does one stop in the length of a high school corridor when one is traveling at supersonic speed? Check out the episode where he is up against Captain Cold and Heat Wave. Only when a punch line is needed do Barry's sneakers flame up after running or to get her to take off her shirt Felicity's blouse catch on fire. The writers assume that the viewers are morons. Furthermore, Barry learns that he is but one of many affected by that event, most of whom are using their powers for evil.
The kid wakes up after nine months of being in a coma and just walks out straight away, with a tan and perfect hair. If you cannot see how cheesy and bad this is, you have become immune to the American junk that is all around us, I urge you to watch real television. If the theory is wrong The Flash dies. . To say The Flash is written more poorly than The Dukes of Hazzard or Love Boat would be an understatement.
The 2014 Flash suffers from a different problem. The lab which blew up the whole city is still operating and although they claim to have lost everything, they can still afford to run this highly technical facility. Two examples follow: In one episode, Flash fights an opponent who can turn to steel. Who is feeding the meta-human prisoners and where do they shower? R labs find that he now has the ability to move at superhuman speed. Actors look so dumb and out of place it makes me want to grab a cheese grater and slowly rub it over my face, causing me as much pain as humanly possible, only to distract myself from the fact that I just watched this show. He defeats him with a risky move that requires him to run at supersonic speed, then enter a building and punch the villain.
How about using the same speed to launch something like a brick at him? And even if they were. And consistency is a problem. This proves to me that American television is getting dumber and less creative by the month! When I was a lad back in the 60s my favourite super heroes were The Flash and Green Lantern. While he gains allies he never expected, there are also secret forces determined to aid and manipulate him for their own agenda. While John Wesley Shipp made a great Flash back in 1990, the writers just had to inject the usual cornball humour that ruined the show for me. Nothing in this show makes any sense. Then there's the other option.
