The Flash 1×09 ‘The Man in the Yellow Suit’: Merry Christmas

The fall season of The Flash has come to a close and I couldn’t be happier. Well, maybe a little. But it’s a minor gripe I have with an otherwise thrilling episode that raised questions I thought I figured out the answers to several times over. Did we really find out who Reverse Flash is, or was […]

The Flash 1×08 ‘Flash vs. Arrow’: Part 1

The biggest event in DC television history has finally arrived! Team Arrow comes to Central City and Barry convinces Oliver to team up with him to catch a metahuman. Eddie and Iris discover they’ve both been keeping secrets about each other, leading to a severe change in stance for Iris on The Flash. Diggle has […]


The Flash 1×07 ‘Power Outage’: Blackouts

Happy belated Thanksgiving to you all! I almost just skipped talking about this episode entirely before the Flash vs. Arrow epic crossover event. HOWEVER, this episode rocked too much not to talk about. It’ll just be a quick recap with some thoughts. When Barry loses his speed powers after being struck by electricity from a new metahuman, […]


The Flash 1×06 ‘The Flash is Born’: Guy of steel

Barry teams up with Eddie Thawn to track down a metahuman with the ability to turn himself into metal. Joe recruits Harrison Wells to uncover the murder of Barry’s mother, but Joe has other plans. Iris, and her sincere likability, finally gets more involved in the central plot. Diego Crespo Diego champions fallen TV shows […]


The Flash 1×05 ‘Plastique’: It blew up, dude!

What an insanely likable show. The Flash continues to pit Team Flash against interesting adversaries this week as Plastique and General Eiling make their introductions (and possibly one other villain). Cisco, Caitlin, and Barry discover Barry can’t get drunk and Detective West lets Barry in on a not-so-secret secret. SPOILERS BELOW Diego Crespo Diego champions fallen TV […]


The Flash 1×04 ‘Going Rogue’: Cold snaps

The Flash reaches new heights this week with the introduction of Captain Cold and the return of a familiar face from Arrow. So it looks like the weak villains were the only thing really holding this series back from being genuinely great. Because this episode rocked from top to bottom. What continues to amaze is the character […]


The Flash 1×03 ‘Things You Can’t Outrun’: Misty-eyed

The consistent quality of The Flash  only three episodes in is admirable. Each episode we’ve gotten worthy villains for Barry, although they’re underdeveloped. The stories all help Barry grow in some way or another, whether it’s learning his physical limitations, or he’s coming to an understanding of his new responsibilities as a hero. Add all that […]


The Flash 1×02 ‘The Fastest Man Alive’: Multiplex

Just as Barry and Team Flash fight a man who can copy and paste himself, ‘The Fastest Man Alive’ copy and pastes Barry questioning himself. Does he truly have what it takes to be a hero? Well, duh. We established that last episode. But it’s nice to see it expanded upon. And this show is […]


The Flash 1×01 ‘City of Heroes’: A running start

As a lifelong fan of The Flash character, you can imagine what a big deal this show is for me. We’ve yet to see a feature length Flash movie but this new series might just be a step in the right direction. Taking place in the same universe as Arrow probably garners a majority of […]
