Seems like old home week here on The Flash, as we’re introduced to not only the Elongated Man from the comics, but also Machete himself, Danny Trejo, as Breacher, Gypsy’s father. This should certainly be an interesting episode, especially after last week‘s seeming descent into jump-the-shark territory. Meet me after the stretch and the super speed jump for my thoughts on “Elongated Journey Into Night!”
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 this episode of The Flash we’re introduced to not just one, but two Rogues from the comics – Mirror Master and the Top. Although there may be some major differences in these villains as they make their way to the small screen. Meet me after the super speed jump for my review of “The New Rogues.”
What did the Flash get for Christmas? Not one, not two, but three Rogues on the loose out to take over Central City. It’s Captain Cold, the Trickster, and the Weather Wizard vs. the Flash, and if that’s not enough, we also meet Wally West for the first time. Meet me after the super speed jump for my thoughts on “Running to Stand Still.”
You enjoyed “The Flash” this season, can’t wait for the second season to premiere, and have been following my reviews here at Biff Bam Pop!, but how well do you know the Flash from the comics? Comics can jump the shark and get out of control sometimes far worse that television shows, and the Flash is no exception. Meet me after the jump for my top ten most outrageous Flash facts. It gets wild, and weird, you’ve been warned.
The Flash is looking for a little help from his friends (and enemies) to fight the Reverse-Flash. He not only recruits Arrow and Firestorm (why not the Atom?), but also Captain Cold and his evil kid sister. Yeah, he’s that desperate, but can he trust these Rogues to be loyal when it comes down to it? And what about all the other villains out there, and imprisoned in The Pipeline? This is just one of the only two episodes of “The Flash” left, so the final battle is coming. Meet me after the treacherous super-speed jump for my thoughts on “Rogue Air.”
Many folks aren’t aware that the CW’s “The Flash” isn’t the first time the scarlet speedster has graced prime time television. There was also a 1990-91 TV series on CBS that lasted barely a season and starred John Wesley Shipp in the title role, now cast as Barry Allen wrongfully jailed father in the current series. In that series, the Flash’s most challenging foe was the Trickster, played by the manic Mark Hamill. Now Hamill returns, in the role that eventually won him fame as the Joker, in the newest episode of this series. Meet me after the super speed jump for my thoughts on “Tricksters!”
The last episode of The Flash was the king of the cliffhangers. The Weather Wizard was about to destroy Central City with a giant freak tsunami. Barry had revealed his heroic secret identity to Iris. Cisco was dead at the hands of Dr. Harrison Wells, now exposed as Eobard Thawne, the Reverse-Flash of the 25th century. At this moment of crisis, Barry finds himself thrown backward in time. It can only get worse as Captain Cold and Heat Wave return, with the Golden Glider in tow. Don’t miss my thoughts on “Rogue Time,” after the super speed time jump!
