‘The Flash’ 4×14 Review: “Subject 9”

The Olympics are over, but the race is still on. Only there aren’t medals involved. It’s life and death and a lot of metahumans. The Flash returned with a country twang and a foreign feeling — a feeling that involved…

Iris West Suits Up in New 'Flash' Photo

‘The Flash’ 4×05 Review: ‘Girls Night Out’

Funny what can happen when a show embraces what it does best; what defines it. Like Barry Allen being the hero of his story rather the villain. Like finding the balance between heart and humor. Like doing justice by the…
