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. Labs Museum, Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) reaches out for help, and Wally (Keiynan Lonsdale) is itching to get in on the…

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 3.05 “Monster” Top 5

Susan Walters as Dr. Carla Tannhauser and Danielle Panabaker as Dr. Caitlyn Snow - The CW

Hello, hello, speedsters! As we start to ramp up into the season, the team is adjusting to the “new” Wells, Caitlyn has an identity crisis and reaches out to her mother, and The Flash battles Godzilla (sort of)! Let’s take a look at my Top 5 for episode 3.05, “Monster:” #5: Julian is Draco Malfoy! I guess the writers didn’t want to work real hard on developing a gripping backstory for Julian Albert (Tom Felton), so they just borrowed the one from his most famous character, Draco Malfoy in the…

The Flash 3.04 “The New Rogues” Top 5

Violett Beane as Jesse Quick and Grant Gustin as The Flash - The CW

Things are starting to settle down on The Flash this week – no crazy timeline paradoxes, for once! But we have a new bad guy in town – another old comics favorite, but with a twist! Let’s take a look at my Top 5 for episode 3.04, “The New Rogues”: #5: Ugh, CW Relationship Drama While this was a strong episode over all, the sub-plot of Barry (Grant Gustin) being unwilling to kiss Iris (Candice Patton) in front of Joe (Jesse L. Martin) was just annoying. First of all, the…

The Flash 2.19 “Back to Normal” Top 5

Hey, Flash fans! It was quite a ride last week – Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) is now without his powers, having sacrificed them to save Wally, but how will he and the team defend Central City against Zoom, or even other metahumans, without them? Will they get Caitlyn Snow (Danielle Panabaker) back from Zoom’s clutches? Let’s take a look at episode 2.19, “Back to Normal.” #5: Another Humdrum Villain It’s been said sometimes of the comics that The Flash’s rogues gallery is a bit of a snoozefest, especially when he…

The Flash 2.14 “Escape from Earth-2” Top 5

Seriously late, this time, everyone. I hope you’ll forgive me! Let’s dive right in to our look at The Flash 2.14, “Escape from Earth-2”! When we left the story last week, Earth-1’s Barry (Grant Gustin), was captured by Zoom on Earth-2 and imprisoned along with Jesse Wells (Violett Beane) and a mysterious man in an iron mask. Back on Earth-1, Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears) and Caitlyn Snow (Danielle Panabaker) were working to perfect a formula that would give Jay his speed back so he could battle Geomancer (Adam Stafford) and…

The Flash 2.13 “Welcome to Earth-2” Top 5

Welcome, Flash fans! This was an exciting week in the ongoing saga of our favorite speedster. Upholding his promise to Earth-2’s Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh), Barry (Grant Gustin) travels with him and Cisco (Carlos Valdes) through the speed cannon across the dimensional rift to Wells’ home dimension, Earth-2, to try and save Wells’ daughter Jesse. Let’s dive right in to my 5 favorite things about this episode, which is by far the best of the season to date. #5: The Retro-futuristic Look of Earth-2 In past episodes, we’d gotten glimpses…

The Flash S02E01 Review – “The Man Who Saved Central City”

Hey there, Flash fans! Have you all been eagerly anticipating this new season as much as I have? Before we launch into this new season’s premiere, “The Man Who Saved Central City,” let’s take a quick look at where we ended last season, in “Fast Enough” (S01E01): Having finally captured Eobard Thawne (the Reverse Flash), who had been masquerading as Dr. Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh), Barry (Grant Gustin) and the team are presented with a tantalizing choice. Thawne/Wells gives Barry a way to go back in time and save his…
