9. Early Reviews for the Pilot Episode Have Been Positive Thus Far

Several reviews have hit the web regarding the 1st episode of The Flash. The majority of them have largely been positive, nothing that the show could grow to be more appreciated over time just like Arrow has recently been regarded. IGN’s review awarded the pilot episode with an 8.4. and gave the following verdict statement below:

After one episode, it’s already clear that The CW’s first Arrow spinoff is more than capable of standing on its own. The prior buildup in Arrow’s second season really helps this new series start off on the right foot and rapidly build Barry Allen’s new status quo. Gustin is quickly coming into his own, and the supporting cast is solid as well. But hopefully we can look forward to more complex villains as time goes on, as well as a series mythology that can subvert expectations as much as Arrow has.
