This week the Wardrobe Recommends…
by Ben Jenkins
In case you live in a hole somewhere, you know full well that Fall TV has finally arrived and most, if not all, of the new shows have already made their grand entrance. After all the hype at Comic-Con this year, I was particularly excited for Gotham and The Flash. Both shows have been out for a few weeks now so it feels like we have a pretty good idea about who they are and where they are headed. While Gotham isn’t a bad show by any means, I don’t believe it has found its identity as quickly as The Flash.
A spin-off of the CW’s popular series Arrow, The Flash follows Grant Guston as Barry Allen/Flash as he deals with his new found powers, and as he tries to find his mother’s true killer. In the series, Barry’s father, played by John Wesely Shipp, has been wrongly accused of his wife’s murder and is serving a life sentence. Shipp’s role in the series is exciting for some of us older viewers because he played the role of Barry Allen/Flash in the short lived 1990 television series that only lasted 22 episodes. With the special effects, quality acting and the arc the story seems to be taking, I believe this new rendition of The Flash will have the legs to outrun its counterpart. If you are looking for something fun to watch without having to know too much about the DC universe, check out The Flash on Tuesday nights on the CW network. Or, you can find the show streaming on the CW website, or on Hulu.
