The Flash – Season 1 Episode 22

“Rogue Air” One more episode of The Flash to go and things are now fully in place for what is sure to be an interesting season finale next week. There’s something of a tying up loose ends feel to this episode but that’s not necessarily a bad thing given that The Flash has built such…

The Flash – Season 1 Episode 21

“Grodd Lives” At last we get to see The Flash square off against the psychic Gorilla Grodd after several teases throughout the season. There’s a strong argument for this episode serving as filler given how close we are to the end of the season and the momentum that was gained on the Reverse Flash storyline…

The Flash – Season 1 Episode 20

“The Trap” The Flash lays more foundations to set up the season finale as the characters prepare a trap for Harrison Wells in order to get him to confess to his crimes. Last week proved to be an important exercise in giving the characters enough information to be focused on taking Wells down. At the…

The Flash – Season 1 Episode 19

“Who is Harrison Wells?” This is a bit of an awkward episode of The Flash in some ways as the title presents a question that the audience already knows the answer to. Naturally we’re all waiting for the characters to catch up so that things can move on. So far the biggest clue that Team…

The Flash – Season 1 Episode 18

“All Star Team Up” Brandon Routh’s Ray Palmer makes his way over from Arrow to The Flash and brings Felicity in tow as a swarm of robot bees is killing people. Who doesn’t love a good crossover? Marvel Studios have created a multi billion dollar movie franchise out of just that notion and it’s kept…

On the D/L – The Flash

Season 1 Episode 17 – “Tricksters” Mark Hamill plays a new version of a character he played in the 1990s The Flash series and terrorises Central City once more. As far as guest casting goes Mark Hamill is a fantastic catch for any TV show especially since he’s going to be in one of the…

On the D/L – The Flash

Season 1 Episode 16 – “Rogue Time” I said in my review last week that I would happily admit that I was wrong if I thought The Flash followed up on Barry’s trip through time in the last episode in a way that was satisfying. Unfortunately I will not be admitting that because the way…

On the D/L – The Flash

Season 1 Episode 15 – “Out of Time” Yay, The Flash is back after a fairly long break and we’re given something that works on some levels but falls over on others. We have a nice callback to the first episode with the reveal of a second Weather Wizard. This does feel like part of…

On the D/L – The Flash

Season 1 Episode 14 – “Fallout” The Flash concludes the 2 part Firestorm arc that has ran all season -pretty much- but was brought into the foreground last week. Picking up right where the last episode left off with the aftermath of Stein/Ronnie’s explosion the episode shows us that the device worked and the pair…

On the D/L – The Flash

Season 1 Episode 13 – “The Nuclear Man” The Flash gives plenty of payoff to the Firestorm subplot that has been quietly running in the background the last few episodes. The death of Ronnie Raymond during the accelerator explosion is something that we saw really early on in the run of this show and it…
