Lovers of DC comics or action in general will be happy to hear that the CW has turned The Flash, a super hero who can run faster than the speed of sound, into a TV show.
Barry Allen, the man who is “The Flash”, is deeply in love with his best friend Iris West and works as a forensic scientist for Detective Joe West (Iris’s father). Barry has a life-long dream of finding the man who murdered his mother since his father was wrongfully blamed for the murder and sent to jail.
After a devastating accident, Barry is put into and coma until, months later, he wakes up to discover that has a superpower—speed. There have only been three episodes so far, so if you haven’t been watching the show, you can catch up in a ‘flash’.

The sideshow is not doing very well thanks to the invention of the television, but when a mysterious murder gets close to Jupiter, the freak show might have hope for more customers.
