The Flash Season 1 Episode 1: City of Heroes
5 second plot: Barry is a normal guy, working for the police as a forensics expert. He's kind of clumsy, always bumping into other people, always being late. Then something happens that puts him in a coma for 9 months. When he wakes up, he can run really really really really fast. There are others like him that use their powers to do bad things and he makes it his business to stop them.
5 second review: This show is different from most superpower themed shows we've seen recently. It's 'light'. The show doesn't feel the need to be dark. It just wants to have fun exploring these cool superpowers. And that's great. It works perfectly for this character. A thumbs up from me.
