I was happy when I was asked to review the two newest in series on DVD from Warner Bros. Entertainment - Arrow: The Complete Third Season and The Flash: The Complete First Season both released on September 22nd, 2015. Kevin had me watching Arrow from the beginning of the series and even with my reluctance, it's now become one of "my shows". I love how this series then spun off a new super hero with the Flash series. We hadn't had the chance to start the new series just yet because of our moving when it first premeired, so we were psyched about this one!
Arrow: The Complete Third Season synopsis says “Oliver Queen’s Arrow has become a hero to the citizens of Starling City – but he will quickly discover that doesn’t mean he can lead a normal life in the spectacular third season of the hit series based on the DC Comics character. A new wave of diabolical masterminds – including the insidious and pervasive havoc wrought by the lethal and secretive League of Assassins – threatens all he holds dear. Team Arrow has grown into a powerful force, but the dangers and secrets that bind them together often put them at odds with each other, as the shadows cast by Malcolm Merlyn and the omnipotent Ra’s al Ghul trigger shifts in loyalties and alliances that test them to their core. For matchless heroism under fire, this action-packed 5-disc, 23-episode Season Three can’t be beaten!”
Of course from a womans point of view, Stephen Amell is absolutely fantastic to watch regardless of what he's doing. This season is one of my favorite and yet one of the most emotional ones with the involvement of the League of Assassins in Starling City. While I don't want to spoil it for you, I've got to say this isn't a season to miss as it's got more revelations, action, and unfortunate events that take place!
The Flash: The Complete First Season synopsis says, “Central City forensic investigator Barry Allen is, always charming and – as a result of a scientific experiment gone awry – now the fastest man alive! He’s The Flash, zigzagging through the action-packed new series from the creative team behind Arrow and based on the supersonic DC Comics character. With his life shadowed by his mother’s murder and his father wrongly convicted of the crime, Barry finds that his newfound power of super speed grants him the ability to move through Central City like an unseen guardian angel. Barry quickly discovers he’s not the only “metahuman” created by the explosive disaster – and not everyone is using their new powers for good. Now, to protect the innocent, Barry and his close friends who know his secret, race to combat evildoers in one astonishing adventure after another."
Initially I figured the Flash was going to be a love interest to Felicity so I had no clue they would end up in separate shows. I love the boy next door look of Grant Gustin and feel like he could be my one of my friends with such a sweet personality! I've not finished the first season but I love the "pace" of this series so far!
