It seems about every review and recap I've seen looks like viewers loved the pilot episode of The Flash. I know when I saw the pilot at Comic Con I literally couldn't wait to watch it again. Here's a breakdown of just how well it did last night:

The Flash gathered more young adults than any other show on FOX or ABC (including Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.).
– The show had the best premiere for CW since The Vampire Diaries in 2009 (in terms of most watched and highest rated).
– The premiere had 4.5 million viewers overall. For adults 18-34 earned 1.5/6 and males 12-34 dominated with 1.8/8.

Fans loved that this superhero story followed a more upbeat and enthusiastic tone. Evidenced straight from the very opening voice over from Barry Allen, "To understand what I’m about to tell you, you need to do something first. You need to believe in the impossible. Can you do that? Good. You see that red blur? That's me! That, too! There I am again! My name is Barry Allen—I'm the fastest man alive."

Tweets about the premiere represent just how fans felt connected to the first episode, and think the series will be extremely successful if continued in the same style:

The Flash is a spinoff series of Arrow, another comic book superhero series about Oliver Queen. The 2012 premiere garnered a 1.3 rating with 4.14 million viewers.
