The Flash S04 E02: ‘Mixed Signals’

afla1

As implied by the title of this episode, this one is all about mixed signals, whether literal, or emotional and romantic. As The Flash battles Kilg%re, here a dangerous metahuman who can control technology, Barry struggles to reignite his six-months-gone relationship with Iris, and we see an interesting reversal in Cisco and Gypsy’s relationship as well. Join me after the super-speed techno-organic jump for my thoughts on “Mixed Signals!”

Reborn and recharged, The Flash is back with its season four premiere. Our hero has returned from the Speed Force for a season with lots of surprises and shocks, including new characters and villains like Blacksmith, Hazard, Breacher, the Elongated Man(!), and our new big bad, Clifford DeVoe, the Thinker! In the meantime, how has Team Flash (or is it Team Vibe, or Team Kid Flash?) fared without Barry? And what brings our hero back? Find out after the Speed Force jump in my review of “The Flash Reborn!”

#Kirby100: Glenn Walker on The Green Arrow

arr1

When most folks think of Jack Kirby at DC Comics, they think of the Fourth World and Kamandi, the older fans might say the Challengers of the Unknown or the Newsboy Legion, or even the Sandman.  Would anyone say Green Arrow?  But it’s true, for seven months in 1958 the King gave us a Green Arrow unlike anything we’d seen before, and it could have been even wilder.  Meet me after the jump for Jack Kirby’s The Green Arrow!

The Flash S03 E23: ‘Finish Line’

afla1

Iris West is dead. Or is she? In The Flash, a show that has out-timey-wimey-ed even Doctor Who this season with the time travel twists, anything could be possible. Now the season finale is here, and we’ll find out if Iris is really dead, as Team Flash squares off for possibly the last time with Savitar and Killer Frost, and who knows what might happen? Meet me after the speed and time traveling jump for my review of the more-than-appropriately titled “Finish Line.”

The Flash S03 E22: ‘Infantino Street’

After what happened on last week’s episode of The Flash was pretty much a waste of time, as the plan neither worked nor advanced the plot much at all, one hopes this episode is different.  The Flash recruits archenemy Captain Cold in his war against Savitar and they run afoul of King Shark – if nothing else, this will be exciting.  Meet me after the super speed jump for my review of “Infantino Street.”

Now time marches toward that event, can the Flash stop it from happening? Find out after the time jump in my review of “Borrowing Problems from the Future.”

Doctor Who: The Return of Doctor Mysterio

adoc1

We have been bereft of new Doctor Who for an entire year (“The Power of the Daleks” doesn’t count), since the last Christmas special, “The Husbands of River Song,” a madcap and bittersweet conclusion to the River Song saga. To trump that adventure, showrunner Steven Moffat pulls a new rabbit from his hat – Doctor Who does superheroes. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “The Return of Doctor Mysterio.”
