Synopsis:
Struck by the supercharged fallout of a particle accelerator explosion, forensic scientist Barry Allen becomes the fastest man alive: The Flash! With his newfound time-warping speed and help from the S.T.A.R. Labs team – Caitlin Snow, Cisco Ramon and Harrison Wells – and his adoptive family, Detective Joe West and Joe’s daughter Iris, the Scarlet Speedster runs circles around other metahumans set on wreaking havoc in Central City, while traveling between alternate universes and protecting our world from otherworldly threats. Last season, new dangers arrived from a parallel earth known as Earth-2, under the direction of an evil speedster named Zoom. In Season Three, Barry faces the unknown – as he irrevocably alters the timeline by saving his mother from the clutches of the Reverse-Flash. The only question now is – as he wrestles with the consequences of his own Flashpoint Paradox, including the wrathful Speed God Savitar – will he be able to find a way out?

“After three seasons, The Flash continues to score in ratings and ranks as the top series for The CW,” said Rosemary Markson, WBHE Senior Vice President, TV Marketing. "Loaded with both in-depth and exclusive new bonus content, both fans of the show and DC fanboys will be eager to add the Blu-ray or DVD release to their collections."

My Review:
My almost ten year old son and I watch "The Flash" together. I record it, and when his dad is busy with work or working late, him and I watch it together. It's one of the things we get to do together that we enjoy.

The Flash is a great TV show to watch with your children, ages 9 and up. Some people would say it's a family show and great for all ages, but there are some things in the show that small children might not understand. I have watched The Flash since it began and it just keeps getting better and better. It could use some new story lines this coming 4th season though. As I feel like a few of them have been repeated 2-3 times already. But overall, it's a good show, worth taking the time to watch it. I have enjoyed watching Kid Flash come into play and watching how he's helped Barry Allen has been cool. It's also been fun watching Cisco find out more about his powers and what he can do with them. I hope more comes with his powers since he's just now starting to figure them out!

Go and purchase your copy today of "The Flash: Season 3" to watch all of the awesome things above and tune into Season four when it begins on October 10, 2017!
