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.”
In the last episode of The Flash, Barry came to the not-so-shocking conclusion that Savitar is in reality a future version of himself. What can he do with this knowledge? What does Killer Frost want with Team Flash? And, who’s Barry??!? Meet me after the super speed jump for my thoughts on “Cause and Effect.”
Oh sure, there’s an actual monster in this episode of The Flash as the title indicates, but that title is more about the monsters we see everyday and don’t quite perceive as monsters… until it’s too late. Find out who the real monsters are, after the super-speed jump, in my review of “Monster.”
Last week’s journey to Earth-Two began as a trip through the looking glass and quickly turned to nightmare for Team Flash. Now Harry, Cisco, and some unexpected allies must rescue Barry from Zoom. Meanwhile on Earth-One, how will Jay stop the Geomancer? Meet me after the extradimensional super speed jump for my thoughts on “Escape from Earth-2!”
For almost a year now we have been teased with this third official TV series in the Arrowverse, and now finally “Legends of Tomorrow” joins “Arrow” and “The Flash” on the CW. The DC TV Universe just keeps expanding. Meet me after the super speed jump for my thoughts on “Legends of Today.”
Things were looking very grim for our heroes in the last episode of “The Flash.” In the aftermath of a mad plan that had Linda Park masquerading as her Earth-Two doppelgänger Dr. Light, Barry lost the use of his legs in frantic combat. Humiliated and beaten in front of Central City, things get worse when Super Gorilla Grodd returns. Meet me after the simian leap for my review of “Gorilla Warfare.”
Like meteor freaks or monsters of the week, breachers from Earth-Two sent to destroy the Flash on orders from Zoom have become status quo so far this season of “The Flash.” This week’s breacher goes by the name of Doctor Light, a character with a dangerous and twisted history and legacy in the comics. We’ll take a look at that, and the episode at hand, “The Darkness and The Light,” after the jump.
I’ve talked about this before, the name of the show is “The Flash,” but it, and the show it spun off from, “Arrow,” are wrapped in the mythos of another DC Comics superhero – Firestorm. Besides sharing his cast of characters, last season on “The Flash,” we even had the origin and appearances by the Nuclear Man, but in our season premiere, Firestorm gave his life (or half of it) to save Central City. Now a new Firestorm must be found, or his remaining half will die. Meet me after the super speed jump for my thoughts on “The Fury of Firestorm.”
