The Flash – Season 5 Episode 5

“All Doll’d Up” The Flash deals with family drama through the West-Allan family and Caitlin’s ongoing quest to find her father. I’ve said previously that I greatly appreciate the writers shifting gears where Caitlin is concerned. She has been adrift for quite some time and taken down some really nonsensical plot threads. Unfortunately the missteps…

The Flash – Season 5 Episode 4

“News Flash” The Flash addresses the tension between Nora and Iris as a metahuman threat starts to manipulate the news in Central City. This isn’t a show that could ever be accused of trying to be political which is fine because it’s not that sort of show. Supergirl has been doing a lot in this…

The Flash – Season 5 Episode 3

“The Death of Vibe” The Flash introduces a new Harrison Wells, furthers Caitlin’s quest to find the truth about her father and continues to develop Cicada as the main antagonist. One thing the writers can’t be accused of so far this season is wasting time. We are only three episodes in and already there has…

The Flash – Season 5 Episode 2

“Blocked” The Flash continues its fifth season with Barry trying to train Nora and Cisco struggling to get over Gypsy. I’ll start with the Cisco plot just to get it out of the way. Last week’s episode began to course correct some of the more problematic elements but some of the lingering issues still existed….

The Flash – Season 5 Episode 1

“Nora” The Flash returns for a fifth season with a new cast member who brings her own unique problems to the show. Readers of this site will know that I considered last season to be particularly weak for this show. I won’t repeat the various issues that I had but sufficed to say I considered…

The Flash – Season 4 Episode 23

“We Are The Flash” The Flash completes its fourth season with a race against time before the Enlightenment takes effect and the final showdown against DeVoe. What happened to this show? I ask myself this question frequently and I really don’t have an answer for it. Season 1 was exciting superhero TV with characters an…

The Flash – Season 4 Episode 22

“Think Fast” The Flash prepares for the season finale with DeVoe putting the final phases of his plan in motion as the team scramble to stop him. It will be no surprise to regular readers that I have been struggling with this season. Outside of a handful of solid episodes and fun moments the whole…

The Flash – Season 4 Episode 21

“Harry and the Harrisons” The Flash has the team seek the help of a dangerous ally who will be immune to DeVoe’s abilities as the threat of his satellites continues to grow. This episode was always going to be fighting uphill for me because it features Amunet Black; an insufferably annoying character that wastes the…

The Flash – Season 4 Episode 20

“Therefore She Is” The Flash reveals the true extent of DeVoe’s plan as the team continues to hold themselves together after a string of defeats. Villain plans are difficult things to come up with. They need to be clever enough to keep the heroes from thwarting it as well as threatening enough to establish very…
