The Flash took TV by storm this year for comic and superhero fans. Week after week the show brought us a colorful mix of villains, intrigue, and lots of superspeed hidden as slow motion. And it was fantastic. From the amazing pilot to the tear-jerking finale, The Flash gave us everything we could want from a comic book TV show. But what made The Flash so good? Why did it find its footing so quickly and why was it able to, sorry but I have to say it, hit the ground running? Especially when so many other comic book TV shows take a while to get going (yeah, Agents of SHIELD, love ya now but you know I’m looking at you)? I have the answer for you after the break.
