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.

I mentioned last season that the visual effects for Grodd were excellent and this episode proves that it wasn’t a fluke….

The Man Who Saved Central City It’s been a long wait but The Flash has finally returned for its sophomore season. When we last saw Barry Allen he was leaping head first into a singularity that was tearing Central City apart in an attempt to stop it. My expectation was that the opening minutes of this episode would…

On the D-L – The Flash

Season 1 Episode 12 – “Crazy for You” Now that The Flash is firmly into the second half of the debut season the plot lines are starting to come into focus a lot more. The Firestorm (Or should that be F.I.R.E.S.T.O.R.M?) arc is gaining more steam and definitely feels like the momentum is building there….

On the D/L – The Flash

Season 1 Episode 1 – “Pilot” Arrow’s universe branches out to Central City to follow Barry Allen’s exploits as the scarlet speedster himself in The Flash. They hype for this show has been huge ever since Barry turned up in two episodes of Arrow in season 2 probably making it one of (if not) the…
