The Flash S03 E14: ‘Attack on Central City’

afla1

In the first half of this special Flash: Gorilla City two-parter, the showrunners gave us a taste of what Super Gorilla Grodd was like in the Silver Age of comics, but this time we see just how dangerous Grodd can be these days. We’ve seen Gorilla City, meet me after the extradimensional jump for my thoughts about “Attack on Central City.” Can The Flash survive?

The Flash S03 E05: “Monster”

aflax

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.”

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!”

The Flash: Aftermath and Speculations

fla1

While it was quite easily the best season finale of this television season, and of the best comic book superhero television series ever, in my opinion, – the “Fast Enough” episode of “The Flash” left perhaps more unanswered questions than the questions that it in fact answered. And although, sneak peeks and trailers aside, it will be between five to six months before we even have a hint to those questions, we can have some fun guessing. Meet me after the jump, and let the speculation begin!

Actor Trading Cards: Anna Kendrick

Anna KendrickI grew up collecting baseball cards, which got me thinking…what if actors had trading cards? IMDb and Wikipedia are great sites, but sometimes you want just the ‘highlights’, right?

ANNA KENDRICK
Born: August 9, 1985 in Portland, Maine
Height: 5’2

“The really humbling moment is when you get home from the Golden Globes and sit on your bed, which is the same crappy IKEA bed you’ve had since you were 18, and you put on an old episode of “Family Guy,” and you have a frozen meal . . . and you’re trying not to get macaroni and cheese on your thousand-dollar gown.” – Anna Kendrick

Scene Stealers: Fall TV Edition

Caitlin Snow on Flash“Yeah, he’s so hot. Uh, I mean, genetically speaking. Because I’m a geneticist, of course. Oh, my God, do I sound like Felicity?” – Caitlin Snow, The Flash

The Fall TV season is well under way with most series having aired several episodes by now. “Gotham” has been enjoying fantastic ratings, although I’d still rank it behind my favs: “Grimm” and “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” (how is this show still struggling in the ratings department; it’s gotten SO GOOD!).

In reverse order, here are my top five “Scene Stealing” performances of the Fall TV Season (so far).

The Flash S01 E07: Power Outage

fla1

The one thing that the Flash does that not many other superheroes these days do is he enjoys his powers. He’s happy to have them, and loves using them. Super speed is not a curse for Barry Allen; it is a blessing. But what happens when suddenly, just when he’s getting used to them, he is stripped of his super speed? Meet me after the jump for my thoughts on “Power Outage.”
