The story of Barry Allen, a police scientist who is the victim of a freak accident. While working late, his lab is hit by lightning. The blast shatters a number of vials, so Barry is both electrocuted and bathed in dozens of chemicals. When he recovers, Barry finds that he has gained the ability to move at almost incomprehensible speed. Fellow scientist Christina (Tina) McGee works with Barry to help him control his newfound powers, even constructing a suit for him which will not be destroyed by his speed. Donning the red and yellow suit, Barry hides his identity from the world as he uses his powers to fight those who the police cannot catch. In doing so he begins to create the legend of the anonymous scarlet speedster known only as The Flash.

You know, when it comes to getting myself, even marginally, excited over watching yet another superhero TV program (yawn!) - I certainly have to say that, at this point, I've become totally immune (as well as blase) about it all.

But, of course, with that said - I do want you to know that I honestly did try to give The Flash (from 1990) at least the benefit of the doubt just to see if this show could, indeed, spark within me that old interest which I once held for the likes of DC Comics' superheroes.

But, unfortunately, The Flash (in all of its "superhero" predictability) quickly turned out to be just the "same-old/same-old" crime-fighting business right from the word "go".

Anyway - Here are 2 things that totally killed me about The Flash character - (1) The absolutely laughable muscle-suit that he wore. (Spare me!) - (2) Through all of his amazing, super-accelerated physical exertion, never once did The Flash ever break out into even the slightest sweat, at all. (Ha! Give me a break, already!)
