I was having a chilled night at home, and decided that I wanted to watch something, opening my usual TV Series streaming link, I see that they have the pilot episode for THE FLASH! Of course, the fangirl in me went crazy and loaded it the next second.
If you didn’t know, The Flash is a new TV Series, from the producers of Arrow-another amazing show. Arrow and Flash, were created as Comic books at first, after which they decided to make these TV Series, and with a bit of luck we could get a movie with a lot of these superheroes. I unfortunately have never read a DC Comic book, or any comic book for that matter. [I believe that out there are animated cartoons with the DC heroes and other movies, but I might be wrong.]
The TV Series is programmed to come out this October. However, they released the pilot episode yesterday for some reason. Not that I am complaining.
From the very beginning I had goose flesh because I was having huge expectations from the show, and I was not let down at all!
The pilot really manages to mess with the viewers mind, in such a way that they know for sure that you just have to come back this October to watch the next episode.
The CGI [computer generated imagery-or special effects] , in my opinion is perfectly realized. I of course, saw probably all the superhero movies recently released by Marvel, so I can say that I can spot bad CGI.
As for the actors, I can only tip my hat to the producers. Every freaking actor is perfect [especially the actor playing the main character] for their role, and it also does not hurt that they are easy on the eyes :D. As a girl, I can confirm that once again, every actor is beautiful.
As far as characters go, they seem to have a good base. And what I mean by that is that they have a good story line behind them. In the first episode we are introduced with Barry Allen’s past. Well, not much of it, but enough to give us a sense of his past. And also, it shows how he becomes this super human. In the pilot we also are faced with some villains. I want to say something about someone, but that will spoil your view and I will restrain myself, but after I’ve seen the ending, I wanted to yell I KNEW IT! [BTW, with that ending, they will make sure that you come back in October to see why and what is going on- to be honest, I was confused as well.]
Just as Arrow, the plot of the new TV Series The Flash, manages to keep you on the edge of your seat. Of course, for those who read the comic books it might not come as a surprise, but for those “noobs” like me, is very enticing.
Another thing that reminds me of Arrow after watching this episode is the humor. Throughout the episode I found a couple of moments where I could just hear myself laugh out loud. There were not many moments as such, but I really think that the series will have its dose of humor.
Besides the humor, there were also some emotional scenes. I don’t want to give anything away, but I wanted to highlight the fact that this series will not only be fun and action packed, it probably will also be an emotional roller coaster, which is amazing! A series that manages to have so many elements combined, is sure to be a success.
I do not regret spending 47 minutes of my life watching The Flash. It is definitely one of the better choices I made this week. However, I wish October wouldn’t be so far away. But with this pilot, the creators really managed to capture my attention and they made me make a note in my calendar for when the next episode is out. I really think this show will be a hit!
I recommend it to everyone! I mean, if you love an action packed, humorous and also emotional TV Show, this is for you! I knew I would like it even before I even saw this episode, but now, I am sure that everyone that likes to spice their lives with a bit of fantasy will love this series!
Here is the extended trailer for the show [I couldn’t find the short one, but I am sure that you will enjoy this as well]. Enjoy!
I was not paid to make this review. I just saw the pilot and wanted to express my honest opinion on it. I felt the need to mention this, so that my review won’t be taken down for no reason.
Until next time, stay safe,
