The Flash 3.11 “Dead or Alive” Top 5

Jessica Camacho as Gypsy and Tom Cavanagh as H.R. Wells - The CW

It seems H.R. Wells has gotten himself into a bit of a pickle, and the only one who can save him is… Cisco (Carlos Valdes)? Yes, that’s right, our valiant Vibe tests his powers against Gypsy, another dimension-warper, in this week’s episode, “Dead or Alive”. Here’s my Top 5: #5: Iris West, Investigative Reporter While all in all, Iris (Candice Patton) is taking the news of her impending murder in stride, it seems she’s bothered by something besides just dying. She wants to leave a lasting mark on journalism. Not…

The Flash 3.10 “Borrowing Problems from the Future” Top 5

Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Candice Patton as Iris West, and Grant Gustin as Barry Allen - The CW

Welcome back from the hiatus, Flash fans! We certainly ended the front part of the season on a down note, didn’t we? Now the team is back from their holiday vacation, and so are we! Barry (Grant Gustin) is having nightmares about his trip to the future, and Iris (Candice Patton) is upset that he won’t let her in on why. H.R. (Tom Cavanagh) is pushing forward with his S.T.A.R.

The Flash 3.07 “Killer Frost” Top 5

Danielle Panabaker as Caitlyn Snow / Killer Frost

Hoo, boy, there’s a lot going on in this week’s episode of The Flash – Savitar is on the scene, Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) is in a cocoon, and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) is fighting her inner demons. Barry (Grant Gustin) is going to be racing around from crisis to crisis even more than usual, I think. This is my Top 5 for episode 3.07, “Killer Frost,” guest-directed by indie movie hero Kevin Smith. But first… Oops! So, I goofed last week, and ended up making myself look pretty foolish. I looked…

The Flash 3.06 “Shade” Top 5

Dr. Alchemy and Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West - The CW

Welcome, everyone! Are you excited, like I am, to see Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) go back in time and reverse the results of the 2016 Presidential election? Alas, that is not the plot of this week’s show, so let’s take a look at the actual episode. Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) hears the siren call of Dr. Alchemy in his dreams, Barry and the team try to track down a new meta, and Caitlyn Snow (Danielle Panabaker) confides in Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes) about her terrible secret. Here are my Top…

The Flash 3.01 “Flashpoint” Top 5

Grant Gustin as The Flash and Keiynan Lonsdale as Kid Flash - The CW

It’s been a long off-season waiting for “Flashpoint,” hasn’t it, speedsters? Before we dive into the episode, let’s briefly review last season: In defeating Eobard Thawne (Matt Letscher), the Reverse Flash, at the end of season 1, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) accidentally opened a breach into Earth-2, a parallel dimension. This unleashed a new enemy, Zoom, from that world, who wanted to steal his speed. He also made some new allies, including that universe’s Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh), and its Flash, Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears). As he battled Zoom and…

The Flash 2.04 “The Fury of Firestorm” Review

The mint chip obsession in the DC TV universe is strong, but an ice cream addiction is the best possible outcome when you’re frequently losing friends in battle. The most recent loss in The Flash universe being Ronnie Raymond. In The Fury of Firestorm, we saw a new hero take up that mantle. It’s never the easiest thing to see beloved heroes replaced, but that pain is eased by a couple of things. First of all, we know Ronnie isn’t gone for good. Secondly, Jefferson Jackson (Jax) turned out to…
