BACK TO NORMAL – 7/10. What makes a hero? It’s not superpowers, or fancy gadgets or even an unhealthy obsession with spandex; the true definition of a hero is a willingness to do what is right no matter what the cost. There are few heroes more earnest than Barry Allen; even without his speed he … More THE FLASH: S02E19


FLASH BACK – 8.5/10 Seeing as there was no Flash this week I thought I would take a trip back in time to review last week’s episode. I don’t always have time to review everything, so occasionally shows must go without the geeky credit they so richly deserve. Fortunately the break in programming has given … More THE FLASH: S02E17


WORLDS FINEST – 7.5/10. If the Batman/Superman team up was the dark, gritty face of DC then the Supergirl/Flash crossover was its smiley, snuggly side that Zack Snyder probably has nightmares about. All joking aside, the superhero genre doesn’t have to be defined by any one style. Just like comics, there is plenty of room … More SUPERGIRL: S01E18

ESCAPE FROM EARTH-2 – 7/10. While the conclusion to Barry’s jaunt on Earth-2 may have lacked some of the pizzazz of the previous episode, it was still a lot of fun to watch. With Barry imprisoned by Zoom, and Cisco and Wells on the run, things looked pretty bleak for Team Flash. The rest of … More THE FLASH: S02E14


WELCOME TO EARTH-2 – 8/10. Well that was absolutely fantastic! Part one of the two part adventure on Earth-2 delivered in spades, managing to find the perfect balance between providing cool, geeky moments and moving the narrative of the season forwards. With 51 of the breaches in Central City now closed, Barry, Wells and Cisco … More THE FLASH: S02E13


FAST LANE – 6.5/10 Hot on the heels of Reverse Flash’s dramatic return and subsequent departure, this week’s episode put the focus heavily on the personal dynamics of the extended Flash family. Whilst the episode did feature a meta-of-the-week in the form of Tar Pit, a former con turned giant, murderous tar creature, this served … More THE FLASH: S02E12
