I have been obsessed with The CW’s The Flash since the very first episode.
However, I always felt that Candice Patton‘s Iris and Grant Gustin‘s Barry were the most forced wannabe couple on any show ever (and I suffered through Arrow‘s Laurel/Oliver pairing – yuck). I don’t blame the actors (who are both insanely talented), it’s just that independently, their characters are more interesting on their own than in a boring, overdone, unrequited love/friend zone sub-plot.
Still, I do know it’s canon for the two to have a long and interesting relationship. So, I decided to see if a fan film could tell their story better. I went with a short by Second Line Studios called Iris. Was it more exciting than other renditions of the Fastest Man Alive? Or could the short not end fast enough? Most importantly, do I recommend the fan film to you, GeekGirl World?
