Top 14 New Shows of 2014: #4

My annual TV Awards, the AFT Television Awards, are given out during the summer. But this year, during both the spring and the fall, produced many impressive new television series. As 2014 closes out and 2015 begins, here’s a look back at the best new shows of the year.

#4: The Flash

I stuck with “Smallville” for ten years hoping it would return to the quality of its first two seasons, and I’m pleased to report that the first half of this show’s freshman season is already leagues better than that series ever was. Grant Gustin is fantastic as the optimistic Barry Allen, who treats his new powers as the coolest thing ever to happen to him. So far, the show has avoided become too cartoonish or repetitive, and its spirit of adventure is by far its best asset.
