“I could never make the choice to leave you. But if my death is the only way to save the universe, to save you? I’m willing to do that.” If Westallen fans thought they would get a break from having their heart ripped out this season, then “A Flash ofRead More →

It’s rare that a show becomes refreshed and rejuvenated six seasons in. That’s just what happened with the premiere of The Flash.

Just like clockwork, it’s about time for The CW’s annual DCTV crossover event, which will bring together characters from Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl in a unique way. In Elseworlds, Oliver Queen and Barry Allen have switched places, which means Oliver is The Flash and Barry is Green Arrow. They team up with Supergirl to figureRead More →

I promise I didn’t do anything bad to Alyssa this week, guys! However, when she asked me to review this week’s episode of The Flash, Run Iris Run, how could I resist? Two great episodes in a row, and I get to write about them? Count me in! This was oneRead More →

Alyssa asked me to write the review for The Flash’s episode this week. For the record, nobody can prove I did anything nefarious to her so that I could write a review of what turned out to be one of my favorite episodes of the entire series. And I definitelyRead More →

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 liking Ralph Dibney and actually feeling sorry for the guy.Read More →

The Flash isn’t a show that’s grounded in reality. Episodes like “Honey, I Shrunk Team Flash” where Cisco and Ralph are shrunk to miniature versions of themselves and where Cecile developed telepathic powers are reminders of that. Yes, it’s hysterical. Yes, it’s ridiculous. But The Flash is the only DCTVRead More →

When it comes to midseason finales, you’re expecting it to go down. You know there’s going to be a cliffhanger. You know something is going to seem beyond hopeless. You know that the bad guy, for however a short time, is going to feel victorious. But in The Flash’s midseasonRead More →

Honestly, I feel like I need to pinch myself sometimes because The Flash — my Flash — has returned stronger and better than ever. Because it feels like I’m dreaming sometimes — because this is exactly what I wanted from The Flash. I wanted The Flash that embraced its lightRead More →

Words cannot describe how great it feels to watch The Flash this season and feel satisfied. Not just that, but to have fun watching it again. It’s something that started waning late in Season 2 and throughout Season 3. But with last week’s premiere — and The Flash’s latest hour,Read More →

Since its first season, The Flash has thrived on its lighthearted tone where family is the focus. Barry Allen has always been the lighthearted hero of the DCTV universe, along with Supergirl, and that was something that we were severely lacking last season as things got a little too dark.Read More →
