Over the course of its two seasons, Arrow has proven to be one of the best superhero shows on television, and in only one single episode, The Flash is already fighting to take that title. Barry Allen really does move fast, eh?
Quite simply, The Flash had one of the best pilots of the year, as it delivered on all of its promises and surpassed our expectations. When the series was first announced, some concerns were raised about how the scarlet speedster would fit into the more “grounded” world that Arrow had created, and about whether or not Barry’s powers could be effectively conveyed on a television budget. Luckily, The Flash is in great hands, because both of those concerns have been completely put to bed by episode’s end. Barry looks great while running and overall, The Flash is a perfect companion series to Arrow.
