Fans of shows like "Arrow" and "Smallville" are eagerly awaiting this fall's release of on the CW network (I know I am). The show will follow the adventures of young Barry Allen, who gets super speedy after a lightning bolt hits a shelf in his lab.

In advance of the show, DC Entertainment has released two "flash" videos that give viewers a peek what we can expect.

In the first, Dr. Harrison Wells (played by Tom Cavanagh), introduces the S.T.A.R. Labs team, the trio of scientists who help Allen come to terms with his new powers. In the second, "The Flash -- Impossible Man," we hear from Cavanagh again, and watch as he and his team get "blown away" by the first field test of Allen's speed.

The show is slated to air Tuesdays at 8 p.m. starting in October, and I'm hoping the time before the premiere goes by in a flash (see what I did there?).
