The Flash S03 E01: “Flashpoint”

afla1

In the final moments of the last episode of the last season, The Flash did the unthinkable, the impossible, the only thing he thought he could/should do. He traveled backward through time and saved his mother from the murderous Reverse-Flash – he changed time. And when he returned home in the present, everything was different, and maybe not a good kind of different. Meet me after the time-bending jump for my thoughts on “Flashpoint!”

Glenn Walker Reviews The Flash S02 E23: The Race of His Life

afla1

The season long battle against Zoom comes down to a race. That may seem silly at first, and very Silver Age of Comics, but let’s face it, this is The Flash, and really there’s no better way for the Flash to finish this than a race, albeit a very special race, one that could destroy the multiverse… Meet me after the super speed jump for my thoughts on “The Race of His Life.”

The Flash S02 E17: Flash Back

fla1

One of the ongoing storylines this season has the Flash trying to get faster so he can stop Zoom. His dimension-jumping adventure last night with Supergirl may have been about exactly that. The Flash’s new plan is to travel to the past and have the insidious Harrison Wells, alias the Reverse-Flash, teach him to be faster – all this and the Pied Piper… and maybe even the Black Flash too. Meet me after the time travel jump for my thoughts on “Flash Back.”

A superhero mash-up is how its creators are describing it. “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” has been building throughout the last seasons of both “Arrow” and “The Flash,” and is finally here. Time Master Rip Hunter brings together heroes and villains from the far corners of the DC TV Universe – Hawkman and Hawkgirl, Firestorm, White Canary, Captain Cold and Heat Wave, and the Atom – to fight the forces of the evil immortal Vandal Savage throughout time. Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on the two-part pilot for the much-anticipated “Legends of Tomorrow.”

The Flash S02 E11: The Reverse-Flash Returns

Things are looking very bad for “The Flash” lately. Not only has his most recent girlfriend Patty Spivot left him, but behind his back Harrison Wells is working with Zoom to steal his speed and most likely kill him. It’s about to get worse as his most dangerous adversary is back from beyond. Meet me after the super speed jump for my thoughts on “The Reverse-Flash Returns!”

The Flash S02 E07: Gorilla Warfare

flax

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.”

The Flash S02 E01: The Man Who Saved Central City

fla1

I don’t think I’ve have been this excited about a season premiere of a television show since the series premiere of “The Flash” last year. You see, the Flash isn’t just my favorite superhero, but Jay Garrick is my favorite Flash. To see him brought to life on the small screen is just pure nerdgasm. Meet me after the super speed jump for my thoughts on “The Man Who Saved Central City.”

Finally here, meet me after the time and space jump for my thoughts on “The Magician’s Apprentice.”

The Flash and the Crisis on Infinite Earths

fla1

If you were a regular viewer of “The Flash” television series last season, or just a reader of my episode-by-episode reviews of that series, you have heard the word “Crisis,” usually mentioned with more than a bit of dread. You’ve seen that holographic newspaper from the future in the Reverse-Flash’s Braille room, that also talked about a “Crisis” and red skies. Crises in the comics are usually bad news for Flashes. Meet me after the jump and I’ll try to enlighten you on the legendary Crisis on Infinite Earths.
