The Flash – Season 6 Episode 19

“Success Is Assured” The Flash ends its sixth season earlier than planned with a team effort to stop Eva McCulloch from murdering her husband. This is a difficult episode for a reviewer as it’s technically a season finale but was never intended to be one so it’s not completely fair to grade it on how…

The Flash – Season 6 Episode 18

“Pay the Piper” The Flash brings back an old enemy as the team faces a newer enemy while reeling from the revelation of the mirror duplicates. I’ve often accused this show of being excessively morbid and I stand by that accusation in every instance because the writers do have a tendency to make things more…

“A Girl Named Sue” The Flash introduces the subject of Ralph’s prolonged investigation as Iris realises she isn’t the only one trapped inside the mirror. Ralph’s investigation into the disappearance of a Central City socialite has been bubbling along in the background for a while. Outside of the build-up to “Crisis on Infinite Earths” it’s…

The Zookeeper’s Wife

Niki Caro’s The Zookeeper’s Wife tells the true life tale of Antonina and Jan Zabinski, the former keepers of the Warsaw Zoo who were forced to relocate once Nazi Germany invaded Poland. The premise of this film intrigued me. I can’t think of many films where the effects of War on animals are explored to…
