Rated 4 out of 5 stars
Really enjoyed it

Although I haven’t seen any of the other seasons, I found this very entertaining. I wanted to see if I liked the series or not before getting the rest. I will now pick up the others. Great Blu-ray quality and awesome special effects!
The Flash (2014) is one of my favorite series out today. It's a clean series for fans of superhero characters. The star, Barry Allen wants to see the good in those that have been given powers from a failed experiment at Star Labs and help them use their powers for good. It's a refreshing take on an otherwise dark DC universe, compared with more down to Earth comedic Marvel films.
That said season five has a unique twist in a character, XS that unexpectedly shows up.
The series looks great on Blu-ray and is a nice step above watching it streamed (which this includes digital copy codes for) or watching it from the CW network.
If you are a fan of the series I can highly recommend season 5. If you haven't seen any episodes yet do yourself a favor and start from the beginning.
I saw the original series in 1991.
Sad it was only 1 season.
This series is awesome.
I like it how The Flash from 1991
was in this series the dad, and also
How Tina made her appearance.
It sad that Barry's dad died just a little after being release from prison. Barry hasn't recovered 100% after the death of his mother; then goes the dad. Whenever this series ends I hope Barry finds a way how to change time, and bring back his parents without changing anything in the present. Similar like
Avengers : Endgame
If you're reading this you probably have at least seen seasons 1-4 or own them already. If not, please catch up and don't jump into a series that has so much to know and understand before jumping into season five. The discs themselves: Quality is excellent on the 16 x 9 transfer, six episodes per disc including the entire "Elseworlds" crossover, deleted scenes and gag reel. The images are sharp and well defined. For those who just stream episodes, there's so much more detail to be seen. and audio is no slouch either, although the tracks are front speaker predominant most of the time. Rear channels come to life when it makes sense to. An excellent season transfer.
If you're a rabid fan of the flash like me you need this. Amazing picture and sound, once again you also get the crossover episodes and other fun features. I also love the cover art of barry and nora and it looks nice next to the other seasons. Lastly very fun season of the show that has many surprises.
In season five, the Flash gets to meet and fight crime alongside his future daughter--who never got to meet him. Why? He disappeared in the "Crisis on Infinite Earths." That event is set for this upcoming season of all the Arrowverse shows. Flash's daughter, known as XS (for "excess" and XS meaning "extra small"), is a flawed and angry girl. Things happened in her past and Team Flash's future that left her angry and bitter. I have enjoyed the work of this actress (Jessica Parker Kennedy) since the Starz pirate show Black Sails. The main "bad guy" is (yet again) the Reverse Flash, Eobard Thawn. Though his time as the mentor of XS (in the future) has changed him somewhat. If you're a fan of the Flash, pick up this show!
