CW’s The Flash… Coming This Fall

The Flash LogoI’ll admit it, I’m fully in excited mode now.

The CW has officially picked up The Flash and put it on the 2014 fall schedule, it looks like Tuesday nights at 8pm as the lead in to Supernatural.

With the #dontblink preview that aired on Wednesday night during the Arrow season 2 finale my excitement grew. Flash Arrow GIF 2

And when the 5 minute preview landed on Thursday, I hit “All In” on the scale of being ready for this thing to be on the air.

Here are some of the things that I noticed and am hyped for…

Tom Cavanagh as Harison Wells. 
Tom Cavanagh as Harison Wells - The FlashIn my 1st post about The Flash I guessed that Wells would be the 1st person to know Barry’s secret. From the extended trailer it looks like I’m right… with Caitlin Snow and Ramon Cisco coming in at the same time on the S.T.A.R. Labs team.

I also didn’t expect to see Tom Cavanagh in a wheelchair when he first appeared on my screen. That one took me by surprise and makes me wonder if he has motives in all of this that centre on him walking again.

Iris West is Really Pretty.
Iris West - The FlashIt seems that Barry and his lifelong crush Iris have some chemistry – which probably means that we’re going to get a will they/ won’t they storyline woven into the show. It will likely be along the same lines as Oliver and Felicity on Arrow, but with Barry doing the pining for the girl of this dreams. And as a CW show we shouldn’t expect anything less.

The real questions will come with the relationship between The Flash and Iris’ father, Detective Joe West.

Team Flash is Going to be Awesome.
The Flash Logo TVThe 2 science geeks that Barry has on his team along with Harison Wells are going to be an interesting team for the Flash. We have met them already in the crossover episodes and in the preview. And more than just how fun they are on screen, the potential that they bring to the series and the CW/DC Universe.

Caitlin Snow is based on Killer Frost, there’s a chance that this character could be really deep and long-term interesting. She also gets the Felicity role of super smart sidekick without a mask that the fans will likely fall in love with.

Cisco Ramon is the street name of the DC hero known as Vibe. While he’s certainly not the muscle that Diggle is for Oliver. With the introduction of metahumans into the world, there’s a strong chance that at some point (probably not in season 1, be patient) that Ramon will become Vibe.
Barry Allen - Caitlin Snow - Cisco Ramon - The FlashI don’t know how season 1 is going to play out with Barry and his team… but I do expect that The Flash is going to be a lot of fun to watch.

Be ready to see Barry visit Oliver for advice early in the season, as we see in the trailer – and for something to happen with he and Felicity that either puts an end to their flirting, or makes things even more unclear moving forward.

There are at least 4 months to go before The Flash comes to TV… and I can’t wait!
