I am beginning to think the word 'cringey' was created after watching the finale for season 7 of the flash. Now, just to clarify, I adored the first few seasons, especially 1 and 2. However, every single aspect of the show has decreased in quality throughout the last few years, and the final straw for me writing this review was Season 7. Although the first few episodes aren't awful, the season as a whole is complete and utter garbage. I would rather fling myself off a building than watch it again. And no, I'm not being dramatic. My main problem with the last few seasons is the lack of enthusiasm from all involved. The writers (for both dialogue and story) have slaughtered this show, with lines such as: "The only thing I'll feel is my fist on your jaw". The Flash suit has clearly gotten cheaper and the actors no longer care about their characters. And I don't blame them. Speaking of characters, (spoilers for Season 7) another issue with The Flash is the onslaught of unnecessary people the show now has. They've brought back Nora and added Bart, for some reason, Cecile is more of a main character than Barry is and the show refuses to lay The Reverse Flash to rest. I could go on and on about this show but, for your sake, I won't. And just to make it clear, I have nothing against the director, writers, actors, or anyone who helped produce/make this show.

In my opinion, the first three seasons are the highlight of the show, and probably the best the show has ever been. Season 4 is ok, season 5 is 50/50. Season 6 was good in the first half, but then kinda died down in the 2nd half, then season 7 is utter garbage. The writing, CGI, cringe/bad story, and the amount of episodes which "The Flash" wasn't even the main focus of. As well as the excessive amounts of side plots. Season 8 does a complete 180 though, and is surprisingly really good so far.

Great show, only reason I gave it 4/5 was that seasons 2 and 3 were a little repetitive, season 3 in my opinion was too dark for this show. I know that on Arrow that is kind of their thing, being dark, but the Flash was always had a little bit of humor in his character. I am very glad they finally decided to bring in a character that is not a speedster for season 4. So far I would have to say season 1 is my favorite but season 4 is shaping up nicely, it will be interesting to see how Barry manages to get out of jail.
