Let’s just come out and say it: The Flash isn’t quite what it used to be. Back in season 1, the show quickly rose to be many fans’ favourite superhero TV series around due to its sense of fun and wholehearted embrace of comic book goodness. Somewhere along the line since then, however, The Flash has lost its way. Don’t get us wrong, there’s still much to enjoy about the show, but it is missing the spark that made it truly great in its debut year.
With the season 3 finale right around the corner, now’s as good a time as any to take a look towards the future and ask just what can the showrunners can do to improve in season 4. We’ve given it some considerable thought and have come up with eight suggestions which we think would solve many of the big issues that are currently weighing the series down, from the better use of certain characters to a shift in the show’s tone and narrative focus.
Take a look at what we suggest The CW does with The Flash next year and as always, if you have any thoughts of your own on the matter, be sure to drop us a comment in the usual place.
