So this is yet another show I got into after the fact, mostly because I didn't know what day and time it came on, and but mostly because I'm really not into watching TV as I used to be. Actually I hardly watch any TV at all these days save for a small handful of shows (which I mostly record and binge on when in the mood). But I'd been wanting to watch the Flash for some time, so I turned to Netflix.

The show is cheesy, a tad cliche, and I'm a week in and already half-way through the season and thus far I adore it to bits. It pretty much has everything I love in a show - action, adventure of the week, underdog hero, sci-fi/fantasy elements, teaminess, family, and just good-old fashion fun without tyring to be all serious and grim dark. Every single character in this show is likeable, even the ones you're not meant to like.

I also love that so far this isn't a show to brush things under the rug or prolong drama for the sake of drama. The things that don't need to remain a secret don't remain a secret for fippin' ever but neither are they tossed out there quick as possible. It's a show that acknowledges that death and the terrible things that happen to people are actually terrible things. It follows through on its consequences, and even the death of a minor character - heck, even a villain - is acknowledged as it should be acknowledged.

And the whump. My gosh, the whump! It is a thing of absolute beauty and I love the fact that they have it pretty much every episode because they can! I have never had a show that was this satisfying where the whump is concerned. I love how this show takes so much into account where The Flash's powers are concerned, how they effect him and how his physical well-being is still extremely important even though he can heal fast.

(Now watch as I finish the season and end up hating the rest of it :P Except the more I watch the better it gets so, naaah!)

(Also, what is it with guys who have the power of superspeed? The Flash, Quicksilver, them being awesome, them being whumped. They have been doing nothing but right by me :D).

Oooooooo. The series has been on my to-watch list forever, but I never quite seem to get to it. Now I definitely need to! :D

(LOL, and I know what you mean about getting flaily-happy over something, only to immediately have the whole show crash and burn everything you liked about it. XP Hopefully that won't be the case here!)

Yes! Watch! It is such a fun show.

Hopefully that won't be the case here!

My gosh I hope not! Although, for me, first seasons have always been consistently good, and it usually isn't until at least season two when things start to go downhill. But there is a first time for everything, and I do recall at least two shows that I was really getting into only for things to take a turn into do-not-want territory.

(I don't think that'll be the case for the Flash, though. Uusually if a show is going to take directions I'm not going to like, it'll take them around mid-season, and this show just keeps getting better).

(And I don't know if you've seen it yet, but if you haven't then another show I highly recommend is The Librarians. That show is just straight up flippin' adorable).

No, I haven't seen The Librarians yet! I've heard bits and pieces about it, but I'll have to add it to the list to check out too. I am always in need of more adorable-happy-making shows. :D
