The Flash – Season 6 Episode 13

“Grodd Friended Me” The Flash brings back Gorilla Grodd when Barry becomes trapped in his mindscape with a limited amount of time to escape. Gorilla Grodd is, without a doubt, one of the most impressive visual achievements this show has given viewers. Grodd and King Shark are impressively rendered CGI creations that serve as a…

The Flash – Season 6 Episode 12

“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 Flash – Season 6 Episode 11

“Love is a Battlefield” The Flash delivers a Valentine’s themed episode with relationship strife both in the criminal underworld and within Team Flash. I’m sure it’ll be apparent to those who regularly read these reviews that I don’t like Katee Sackhoff’s Amunet Black. It’s very much personal taste on my part as she is written…

The Flash – Season 6 Episode 10

“Marathon” The Flash returns to explore the show’s perspective on the new world the characters now live in as a new threat emerges. As I’ve said in many reviews, “Crisis on Infinite Earths” was literally world altering with significant impacts on all of the shows that participated in the monumental crossover event. The Flash was…

The Flash – Season 6 Episode 8

“The Last Temptation of Barry Allen Part 2” The Flash closes out the Bloodwork storyline, bringing an end to the first arc of the season ahead of “Crisis on Infinite Earths”. When the previous episode ended things looked really bleak for Team Flash with Barry moving over to the dark side and Ramsey starting to…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 8

“The Wrath of Rama Khan” Supergirl closes out the first half of season 5 with a battle for Lena’s soul and dangers coming from multiple fronts at once. This season has been really strange so far. It started with slow and deliberate mystery based plotting that has now shifted to rapid fired narrative movement bereft…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 7

“Tremors” Supergirl is all about reveals with the truth about Leviathan, Kara learning of Lena’s true intentions and J’Onn learning the true location of his brother. It’s amazing how much things can change in the space of a single episode. The previous outing did an admirable job showing the influence Leviathan has while still leaving…

The Flash – Season 6 Episode 7

“The Last Temptation of Barry Allen Part One” The Flash tests Barry in the hours before Crisis hits with an offer that could save his life at the expense of his soul. First of all, apologies to those who were looking to read my review on last week’s episode. Life got in the way and…

The Flash – Season 6 Episode 5

“Kiss Kiss Breach Breach” The Flash has Cisco take the lead on a murder mystery as Joe becomes acquainted with Nash Wells. It has been previously established that Cisco is Barry’s choice for taking up the mantle of leadership once Barry’s inevitable death comes to pass. As this episode begins he’s still struggling to find…

Supergirl – Season 5 Episode 6

“Confidence Women” Supergirl delivers a Lena centric episode that chronicles the rise and fall of her friendship with Andrea while delivering insight into Andrea’s history. I’ve mentioned in prior reviews that scenes between Andrea and Lena are interesting because they are peers who challenge each other equally. Katie McGrath and Julie Gonzalo also convey their…
