> Description 
The Flash was created by Danny Bilson and Paul DeMeo and began its Thursday-night run on CBS in 1990. Hampered by a bad timeslot and difficulty reaching an audience outside of comic fans, it was canceled after only one year.

For most of that year, the Flash battled various thieves, drug lords, terrorists, and assassins. Often his adversaries were high-tech—he once fought a robot assassin, and even went up against his own clone. The series also introduced a 1950’s Central City crimefighter, the Nightshade (Jason Bernard), who came out of retirement to aid the flash when his old adversary the Ghost (Anthony Starke) came out of cryonic suspension and threatened the city.

Late in the season, a few classic Flash villains were adapted for the small screen. Captain Cold became Leonard Wynters (Michael Champion), a hit man with super-freezing tech. Mirror Master became Sam Scudder (David Cassidy), a professional thief making extensive use of holograms. The Trickster (Mark Hamill) became a psychopath more like the Joker, and was the only villain to retain his costume in the transition to television. He returned again to appear in the season finale, along with private investigator Megan Lockhart (Joyce Hyser).
