The Flash – Season 4 Episode 15

“Enter Flashtime” The Flash takes a break from the DeVoe plot to tell a stand alone story with a really interesting idea at its core that presents a problem not easily solved. Over the past few episodes this season has become almost as frustrating as the last one. Focus on the DeVoe plot has felt…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 9

“The Present” The Flash moves away from the alien craziness last week and returns to handling its own problems. Revealing that Alchemy is actually Julian under the mask two episodes ago was a really boring and predictable twist that made the world this show inhabits feel hilariously small but this episode does some work to…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 2

“Paradox” The Flash deals with the consequences of Flashpoint by taking us through all of the changes to the timeline. Sadly the episode doesn’t really do much more than this and I couldn’t help but be reminded of Fringe where a similar thing happened. For those not in the know; Fringe was a show that…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 1

“Flashpoint” The Flash begins its third season in an alternate reality created by Barry saving his mother from death at the hands of the Reverse Flash at the end ofth last season. I’ll preface this review by saying that I was really excited about the possibilities of adapting the Flashpoint comic story arc in this…

The Flash – Season 2 Episode 23

“The Race of his Life” Season 2 of The Flash comes to an end with Zoom’s master plan becoming clear and Team Flash having to find a way to stop him. Let’s talk about Zoom! He has been a problematic villain to say the least. At the beginning of the season he was a mysterious…

The Flash – Season 2 Episode 22

“Invincible” Zoom begins his campaign to bring chaos to Earth-1 when he unleashes a legion of Metahumans on the unsuspecting population in the second season penultimate episode of The Flash. The opening moments of this episode were visually excellent as we saw the Metahumans really tearing through Central City and setting up a problem that…

The Flash – Season 2 Episode 21

“The Runaway Dinosaur” Kevin Smith directs an episode of The Flash…oh and some stuff happens to the characters that populate this show. The reason I point out that Kevin Smith directed this one is that it seems to be a selling point for this episode from a marketing perspective but other than having a name…

The Flash – Season 2 Episode 20

“Rupture” Barry takes advice from all of his father figures as The Flash deals with the problem of Barry’s lost speed when Zoom begins a campaign to bring Earth-1 to its knees. Having a superhero TV series where the main character loses his abilities for two whole episodes is a really bold decision and risks…

The Flash – Season 2 Episode 11

“The Reverse-Flash Returns” The Flash brings back Eobard Thawne at an earlier part in his timeline than Barry faced last season and his arrival brings complications for Team Flash. It’s confirmed that every theory I had last week was wrong. That’s not a problem as it’s good to have things turn out differently than predicted…

The Flash – Season 2 Episode 10

“Potential Energy” The Flash returns after a long hiatus with an episode that is broadly back to basics as Team Flash deal with a metahuman from Earth-1 to give us a break from all of the Earth-2 threats that have been prominent this season. Zoom is still on everyone’s mind but he doesn’t really feel like…
