Tonight: “The Flash” 3rd Season Premiere on The CW (10/4/2016)

You’ve waited patiently my readers and now its time to once again catch up with the fastest man alive, the Scarlet Speedster known at The Flash as the third season of his awesome show begins tonight. Check out some details below and I will return with some thoughts.


The Premise:
Six months after the events of the first season, after a singularity event, the Flash is recognized as Central City’s hero. However, the event brings an evil from a parallel universe to Central City in the form of the speedster Zoom (Teddy Sears; voiced by Tony Todd; Ryan Handley, in costume[8]) who seeks to eliminate everyone connected to the Speed Force throughout the multiverse. Harrison Wells’ parallel universe counterpart, and his daughter Jesse (Violett Beane), work to help Barry and his friends stop Zoom. Joe and his daughter, Iris (Candice Patton), struggle with their shared painful past related to their family, especially after the arrival of Iris’s brother Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale), whom Francine West (Vanessa A. Williams) gave birth to shortly after abandoning her family. After Zoom kills Barry’s father, the season concludes with Barry travelling back in time to save his mother’s life from the Reverse-Flash.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: In looking over all of The CW DC Comics superhero show offerings I have to say that “The Flash” is by far my favorite. To me this is one of the most comic book feeling shows that has ever existed outside of the classic 1968 “Batman” series when it comes to live action stuff. My only critique was that the whole Zoom storyline was getting a little long but that’s over and we are heading towards a few episodes of an obviously “Flashpoint” related theme. I hope for the return of Jay Garrick as the Golden Age Flash with other members of the Justice Society. That would be sweet. I’ve already programmed my DVR for the new season, and wonder what you think of the show. Fill me in down in those comments below.
