The Flash Season 2

flash2coverThe Flash Season 2 boxset is here!  Packed with extras, gag reel, deleted scenes and documentaries, this is the set to own if you’re a fan of the series. And like I already mentioned in my review of season 1: I am a fan!

And who wouldn’t be? Any fan of comics owes it to himself to at least try this one out. It’s one of the better acted, more believable comic book series out there.  Believable you say? A show about a guy that can run at mach 3? Where timetravel is used more times than you can say Back to the Future? Set in a city where talking gorillas and crazed metahumans roam the streets? Believable you say?

Why yes! That is the sheer brilliance of the show. Whatever oddball villain they throw at you, whichever crazy “scientific” plot device gets thrown into the mix: it’s always handled so well, you just roll with the punches. Talking gorilla? Sure why not? We’re already in a universe where nobody thinks twice about metahumans anyway.

And just when you’re used to all the craziness that seems so mundane, in come the writers with a new plot: Zoom enters from Earth 2. Bringing with him a bunch of supervillains and, as if things weren’t complicated enough already: the alternate version of dr. Wells. Crazy hijinks ensue, trips to the alternate reality of Earth 2 are taken and crazy alternate versions of the main characters are encountered. And still I wasn’t weirded out. I just rolled with the punches, enjoyed the wild ride all the way through.

I cannot recommend The Flash enough. this may well be my favourite series reviewed so far! What? Gotham you say? Erm….
