The Flash – Season 5 Episode 6

“The Icicle Cometh” The Flash delivers a new origin story for Killer Frost when Caitlin finally reunites with her father and Nora tries to continue building her connection with Iris by joining her on a case. I’ve been very complimentary about the handling of Caitlin this season; the writers have been giving the character very…

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…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 3 Episode 18

“The Good, The Bad and The Cuddly” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow closes off season 3 with a visit to the Old West and a final showdown against the newly released Mallus. Last week finally revealed the true form of Mallus and it was a little bit of a disappointment to have the villain of the…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 3 Episode 17

“Guest Starring John Noble” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow raises the stakes as Mallus is closer than ever to achieving freedom from his magical prison. Last week‘s episode resulted in a loss of momentum for the season by delivering an episode so divorced from the main plot that it felt like filler. With only one episode…

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 3 Episode 16

“I, Ava” DC’s Legends of Tomorrow reveals the truth about Ava as Zari is tasked with helping Mick learn to control the Fire Totem. The mystery of Ava is a relatively recent thing thanks to a cryptic remark by Rip revealing that there is a truth to be uncovered. This is combined with unnecessary angst…
