    This collection takes me back to a time when I had just begun my search for the "Fountain of Middle Age". I had forgotten how many "Celebrities" had made appearances in this Series: Angela Bassett, (London Has Fallen); Richard Belzer, (Law & Order S.V.U.); David Cassidy, (The Partridge Family); Bryan Cranston, (Breaking Bad, Trumbo); Mark Hamill, (Star Wars); and Billy Mummy, (The Munster's) All of these and so many more who started way back when; that makes this series worth watching. Made back when Super Hero's, looked like SUPER HERO'S (Beefy). Not anorexic, like a breeze might blow them away. I really enjoy spotting the "future" mistakes. Popcorn, Diet Soda, a Blanket, and a Rainey weekend would be perfect for this collection. Enjoy it with family (or even someone you love) :o)

    With the recent explosion of Superhero shows on TV & in theaters, this is a nice flashback. A lot of these shows from the 70's, 80's, 90's set the groundwork for the shows we are enjoying now. The shows now may have new leads, but they've brought in a strong supporting cast - those that were the leads in shows like this. Watching this, it takes you back to when this show was first out... lots of good memories. Solid plot, good acting, incredible sets. A blast from the past. :)

    Loved the 2014 TV show The Flash with Grant Gustin, so, after finding out that Barry's dad in that show was the ORIGINAL FLASH IN 1990 I had to get it - plus it was $10 FOR A COMPLETE SERIES!! Biggest pull-away on this, the show was amazing!! Why it didn't get a second season I have no idea. It being 1990 when this came out, it feels like it was trying to emulate Tim Burton's Batman in tone and look, or at least that's the Vibe I get from the opening credits. Totally recommend this to any DC Universe fan!!

    When it originally came on in 1990, The Flash was one of my favorite TV shows. Show was definitely influenced by the 1989 Batman movie... right down to the Danny Elfman theme song. While it is a little campy occasionally, it holds up amazingly well. One of the great treasures of this show is Mark Hamill's Trickster, without whom we would not have Hamill's amazing Joker from Batman the Animated Series.

    I watched this series years ago when it first aired. I forgot about it. I found myself searching through the discount DVD bin and discovered this jem. I had to have it realizing The Flash on CW incorporated John Shipp, who plays Barry Allen's father on the series, was the original Flash. Mind Blown. I love it when characters reprise their roles. It brings an authenticity to the series. Unlike when a series replaces an actor...Aunt Viv is that you?

    Series is definitely dated but pretty decent overall. Have not seen this since it first aired. I originally purchased it for my grandkids but after recently viewing the pilot episode online before I actually gave it to them I decided it was too mature for their ages. Several scenes with mature adult content that really is not for young kids; the Batman TV series is much better for kids. Quality of the discs was good. Paid under ten bucks for it which is worth it.

    This is a nice set of the complete (old) Flash series. The audio/video quality isn't incredible, but it's to be expected from a TV show that was shot/mastered on tape vs actual film and also only presented on DVD instead of the HD shows we're all accustomed to watching now. If you're a fan of this series, the set is worth picking up, especially for the low price tag.

    I own the new Flash on blu ray, but when I saw this set at the sale bin at Best Buy, I couldn't pass it up. Sure the special effects may be outdated by today's standards, but this short-lived series is still fun to watch. Too bad it didn't get the following it deserved back in the day. But pitting it against the Simpson's or the Cosby show at the time, seriously hurt its ratings. I' m happy to add this to my collection.
