CELEBRATE THE BEST TV SPIN OFF'S WITH THE FLASH SEASON TWO18:30:00
Good Afternoon Lovelies,
And how are we all doing? More importantly what are we all doing right now? Well if you are reading this wherever you are in the world you are in for a treat lovelies, because I have a brand new feature from The Flash to celebrate its upcoming second season being released on DVD and Blu-ray on Monday.
It’s no secret that TV spin-off shows can be a challenge to get right, and there are plenty of examples of failed attempts. That being said, some of the best shows have created equally popular spin-offs, from Cheers and Frasier to Dr Who and Torchwood. To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of the second season of DC’s own epic spin-off THE FLASH on September 12, here are some of the best and most successful ones, past and present:
The Flash: The TV series The Flash is a spin-off of fellow DC series, Arrow. Barry Allen (Grant Gustin), who also appears in Arrow, is a Central City police forensic scientist with a reasonably happy life. However, this all changes when a massive particle accelerator accident leads to Barry being struck by lightning in his lab. Coming out of coma nine months later, Barry finds that he now has the ability to move at superhuman speed and decides to become The Flash. The first season won the People's Choice Award for "Favourite New TV Drama".
Better Call Saul: Creators Vince Gilligan and Peter Gould recreated some of the brilliance of Breaking Bad in the spin-off prequel Better Call Saul. This series follows the story of small-time lawyer James Morgan "Jimmy" McGill (Bob Odenkirk) on his journey to becoming his alter-ego Saul Goodman. Saul is not the only Breaking Bad character seen in the series, drug lord Tuco Salamanca and hitman Mike Ehrmantraut also make appearances. The show is in its second series and has received critical acclaim.
Angel: From the same creator as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon, Angel focuses on the vampire character of the same name as he moves to LA in a quest for redemption. The story follows Angel as he helps the downtrodden citizens of LA by averting the supernatural creatures that prey on them, in the hopes of making up for his past evil deeds.
