The Flash – Season 1 Episode 7

“Gorilla Warfare” Grodd returns to The Flash at the worst possible time. With Barry incapacitated it is up to Team Flash to use their collective genius to stop Grodd without the benefit of Barry’s speed. I mentioned last season that the visual effects for Grodd were excellent and this episode proves that it wasn’t a fluke….

The Flash – Season 2 Episode 6

“Enter Zoom” After several teases, The Flash finally gives audiences a proper look at the mysterious Zoom and shows him to be a villain that is not to be taken lightly.

The Flash – Season 2 Episode 3

“Family of Rogues” The Flash takes a break from alternate realities and Zoom to bring back Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold to deepen the antagonistic relationship between the two characters.

The Flash – Season 2 Episode 2

Jay Garrick is so far a really interesting character who has a lot to offer this show. His presence represents the concept of…

The Flash – Season 2 Episode 1

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…
