5.0 out of 5 stars Luke? Luke Who? January 21, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
After watching the video, I had to remind myself that it was Mark Hammill who'd played the Trickster. I can't believe he rarely got acting jobs after the Star Wars movies, because he's so good in this you don't see Luke Skywalker. It's the Trickster all the way. The acting is superb, not just by him, but Shipp and the rest as well.
The special effects, as with all the John Wesley Shipp "Flash" episodes, are excellent, and the story is perfect comic book super-hero fare brought to life. Well worth watching. Anybody know how to get more episodes?

4.0 out of 5 stars How am I supposed to miss you if you WON'T GO AWAY? March 2, 2000
By Chance
Format:VHS Tape
The two finest episodes of the series, and much better than the uneven pilot.
It sometimes plays as one big audition on Hamill's part for the Joker (which he was to voice on the excellent "Batman: the Animated Series" a couple years later) but not to the detriment of the story.
It's too bad that the series went off the air just as it was finding its (excuse me) legs.
How about pressing these to DVD?

4.0 out of 5 stars Super-Heroics at Its Zaniest and Best January 21, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
This tape consists of two episodes, one introducing the somewhat demented James Jesse, who goes from con artist to costumed villain in sixty nutty minutes, the other the final and best episode of CBS's short-lived super-hero series. Together, you can see the show gaining its footing and its willingness to combine the grit of the first Batman film with the sense of fun that the various Flash comics have always had.
Shipp makes a fine Barry Allen, a man with one foot in a shiny yellow boot and the other in 1956. Hamill reinvents himself here, developing the persona that would serve him later as the voice of the Joker on the Batman cartoons of the 1990s. And Joyce Hauser - not listed in the Amazon or IMDB creits - plays Megan Lockhart, Barry's spunky and tough love interest quite well.
Also take note of Shirley Walker's superb incidental music, which builds on Danny Elfman's theme for the show and gives the Trickster a motif of his own that would later be the basis for Walker's own work with the Joker on the Bat-cartoon.
It's a shame that the 2nd Trickster episode was the last of the whole series. It was getting better with each week and could have been what Lois and Clark was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't top this December 12, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Gleemed from the legendary Flash television show of the 90's. It later was released as a movie in Japan. Top-shelve! I love that red lighting bolt costume. Did you notice that the speedsters in the olympics wore a similiar designed Flash costume?(Minus the lighting bolt.)

4.0 out of 5 stars The old ones are ALWAYS the best! June 2, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
It has been a long time since I saw the Flash 2 but i still remember it vividly and still enjoy watching it (when it does choose to show on TV). The flash 2 handles intself in a style that 1997's 'Batman & Robin' should have handled itself. It is very bright and cartoonish, yet very dark and urban and doesn't forget its roots, just for the sake of a 'traditional' family audience.
Mark Hamil does well to shake off the Luke Skywalker character as the devilishly delightful Trickster, although he has never been recognised for it. He plays The Trickster with such energy and great psychology.
I still feel that The Flash was one of the best interpretations of a comic book character ever displayed but unfortunantly disappeared before its time. John Wesley Shipp is also fantastic as the subtle Barry Allen, but this time shows his comedy side as he is brainwashed to work with the trickster halfway through the film in the film's most hilarious scene....the courtroom scene.
I will be critical, the film sometimes sloaps off into extra information that is not always needed; i.e: the relationship between Barry and his girl, who is so forgetful that I cannot even remember her name.
Far superior to the first film and the even the third. This is a great achievement for the industry of comic book films, it is only a shame that no one can find a copy for it anymore.
I feel that it could benefit from a resurrection, or even a remake could work. This is a true piece of action and comedy that has always played 56th fiddle to the truel bad comic book films over the years, such as the hulk and the phantom.
