"The Flash" is a spin-off from "Arrow". It is based on the character Flash/ Barry Allen from the DC Comics. Barry Allen gains superspeed. He's the fastest man alive. He uses it to fight criminals (Including villians with superhuman abilities a.k.a 'meta humans')
How about the actors?
The Flash is portrayed by Grant Gustin. Grant is an American actor and singer. Before playing in "The Flash", he was already known for playing Sebastian Smythe in "Glee" and Campbell Price in "90210". Other big names from "The Flash" are Candice Patton (Iris West), Danielle Panabaker (Caitlin Snow), Carlos Valdes (Cisco Ramon) and Jessie L Martin (Joe West). This weekend ( June 25th & 26th) Liv and I are going to Arccon. Arccon is a fan convention with guests from the series "The Flash" and "Arrow". At Arccon we will meet at least 2 actors from "The Flash": Rick Cosnett (Eddie Thawne) and Shantel VanSanten (Patty Spivot)! And since there are crossovers with "Arrow", there obviously is some overlap in the actors. During the crossovers, some actors from "The Flash" play in "Arrow" and the other way around! At Arccon, We met Rick Cosnett, Violett Beane (Jesse) and Shantel vanSanten! Don't forget to check out the articles we wrote about these experiences!
Who will like this?
It's a bit the same as I told you with Arrow: If you like superheroes, check this out! I personally never watched a lot of superhero movies or series, but I like "The Flash". So even if you're not into Superman etc, try it out. But: I have to be honest: It's one step further than "Arrow". "The Flash" is even more about superheroes, villains and all sorts of meta humans. And then there's time travelling. Sometimes things go a bit too fast for me. So, it actually is different from "Arrow". I think "Arrow" is easier to follow. With "The Flash", you really need to keep a close eye on what's happening!
How many seasons?
2 seasons up untill now. The show is still running.
I started to watch "The Flash", because I was already watching "Arrow". There were some episodes that crossed over so reason enough to start watching. I like the series, the characters are likeable, the storyline is nice. I like the fights, the villains but also the personal development of the characters. Especially Barry and Iris' relationship (Or maybe I should say the absence of a relationship) and their personal matters. The other characters are also very likeable. You get attached to the characters. That's what makes me come back to watch. However, sometimes the time travelling and all the meta humans are a bit much for me. I will have to find out the upcoming seasons how the balance will be and if will keep on enjoying it to watch the series. For now, it's still fun for me to watch. But the combination of time travelling, meta humans and earth 2 drives to me to the edge of what I can handle. But I also have to admit: I can't sit and just watch a series. I have to 10 things at the same time. And that's kind of hard hen you're watching "The Flash". Before I know it they travelled trough time and everything has changed again! Our absolute favorite actor in "The Flash" is Rick Cosnett. Really hoping he'll be back in season 3. (Then we'll never stop watching!)
