The Flash was a TV series that aired on CBS for one year from 1990 to 1991. It starred John Wesley Shipp as Barry Allen, who worked in the police crime lab of Central City and who, through a mixture of chemicals splashed on his electrified body by a lightning strike that sent him flying backwards into a cabinet of glass containers those chemicals, which shattered when his lightning-electrified body struck them, was transformed into "The Scarlet Speedster." Amanda Pays acted out the scientist Dr. Christina McGee, with whom he struck up a friendship as she helped him deal with his new-found super-speed abilities. Some of the Rogues Gallery villains--specifically, Captain Cold, the Mirror Master, and the Trickster--appeared in certain episodes. The series had trouble trying to find a suitable time slot on CBS's prime-time scheduling and was ultimately cancelled.
