    As a fan of the Flash I hoped they'd do right by the character, especially since they actually seemed to pay attention to the comics (incorporating characters such as Tina McGee and Iris West, who came directly from the comics). The two hour pilot, unfortunately, was a disappointment, with a weak story, far too many references to Tim Burton's Batman, a generic motorcycle gang leader as the villain, and an unexplained weakness (the Flash would lose his powers unexpectedly, which was never mentioned again through the rest of the series). I hoped for improvement, but since I knew that usually the most care goes into the pilot I didn't hold out much hope. But after a while they brought in Howard Chaykin and John Francis Moore as story consultants, and the show changed for the better. Chaykin, who had been in comics for well over 10 years, brought a knowledge of the comic book Flash to the story, and we started to see villains from the comics (Captain Cold and the Trickster) and references to things in the comics (including, at one point, the Flash accidently vibrating through a wall). At that point the series really improved, and by the time the first season ended I was hoping for a second, which of course never happened (which is too bad, since the second season opener would have had Captain Cold, the Mirror Master, and the Trickster teaming up against the Flash). Overall an enjoyable series, and well worth having, especially at such a low price.

    There is nothing wrong with the product accept the case was beat up, and I discovered I could buy this same product for less elsewhere.

                      Haven't seen this show since it aired. Looking forward to grabbing some (Super) friends, some popcorn & beverages. Sitting back and reliving an old childhood favored show.
