‘The Flash’ 5×14: Cause and – Cause and – Cause and XS

This week’s episode of The Flash, titled “Cause and XS” had a marked lack of Barry and filled the time with a little Groundhog Day inspiration. (As I understand it, filming happened around the period of Grant Gustin’s wedding.) Rumor has…

‘The Flash’ Episode 5×13 Review: The Good, Bad, and Ugly of “Goldfaced”

There is something just so irresistibly endearing about Barry Allen. Is it his boyish charm? His optimism and utter faith in people? The fact he wears his hero’s heart on his sleeve? A few days ago, I would have agreed…

‘The Flash’ Episode 5×12 Review: Bittersweet “Memorabilia”

Wait. What…what is that? An episode of The Flash that has a strong plot, gives Iris and Nora both decent point of view, clears up some potential plot holes, and actually manages to make the villain interesting mid-season? Where has…

‘The Flash’ 5×11 Review: “Seeing Red” or Seeing Meh?

Do you ever come across an episode of television that is so “middle of the road” that you don’t really know what to say about it? Not so fantastic that you want to talk about its wonderful nuances. Not so…

‘The Flash’ 5×10: I Have…Questions About “The Flash & The Furious”

Sometimes shows, and especially episodes like “The Flash & The Furious,” prompt us to ask questions. They make us think about our preconceived notions of the world around us. They ask us to wrestle with our angels and demons. Or,…

Our 21 Favorite Ships from 2018

We love love. And most importantly, we love the journey couples take towards that love, the getting to know each other, the teasing, hell; we even love the obstacles, as long as our favorites come through those together. Because they…

Female Characters Who Kicked Ass in 2018

Who run the world? Girls! That was so, like five years ago, but it still resonates today. 18th century healers, 21st century doctors, scientists, generals aliens and the list goes on! Damn- women truly kicked ass on television and on…

‘Supergirl’ 4×09 Review: Elseworlds, Part 3

As a fan of all these DC television shows, I understand the hype and thrill that comes with these annual crossovers. Bringing together prominent figures in DC Comics for these epic battles pulled right from the comics. Allowing these characters…

‘The Flash’ 5×09 Review: Elseworlds Part 1

Well, it’s that time of year again. Time for the annual crossover between the Arrowverse shows – or three of them this year, at least. Every year, it’s a chance to see all (or, rather, some) of our favorite characters…

‘The Flash’ 4×08 Review: It’s Been a Long Road to the 100th Episode

This week, The Flash aired its 100th episode – still a tremendous achievement for any television show today. As such, the episode, titled “What’s Past is Prologue,” was more an excuse to look back to the past. To remind the…

‘The Flash’ 3×07 Review: THIS SHOW IS ABOUT FAMILY, OKAY?

I had hoped that The Flash would go from the worst episode of the season last week to one of the strongest this week. Well, I guess there’s a reason nobody says that Thanksgiving is the season for wishes to…

‘The Flash’ 5×05 Review: #ABiggerWorldForIris in “All Doll’d Up”

‘The Flash’ 5×04 Review: A Make-or-Break Episode

Since the beginning of the season, one question has hovered over the show like a dark cloud. Why is Nora so cold towards Iris? Her attitude towards her mother was so pronounced, it was impossible to ignore. As such, the…

‘The Flash’ 5×03 Review: Fathers and Daughters

Todd Hellbing promised that the fifth season of The Flash would focus on family. So far, the season has lived up to the promise. The “Death of Vibe” touched on three father/daughter relationships to varying degrees, and while it felt…

‘The Flash’ 5×02 Review: The Troubling Treatment of Mothers

Family is a main theme of the fifth season of The Flash, and it certainly was at the heart of this week’s episode, Blocked. Let me start off by saying that I enjoyed this episode for the most part. It…

‘The Flash’ 5×01 Review: “Nora” Is The Course Correction This Show Deserves

Second only to the Pilot, “Nora” may have been the most important episode of the series. In a sense, it was like a Pilot episode of its own. Last season, The Flash’s original show runner, Andrew Kreisberg, was fired for…

Our Hopes/Wishes for the Arrowverse

Premiere week is here for the CW, and that means our favorites (or not so favorites, but hey, some of us want to hold onto hope) superhero shows are back, starting with The Flash, which premieres Tuesday, October 9th. Before…

The Seven Facets of Westallen Love

As any Westallen fan – and Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, and Todd Helbing themselves – will tell you, the relationship between Barry Allen and Iris West(-Allen) of The Flash is unique. In a medium that often values drama over strength,…

‘The Flash’ SDCC Interview: Carlos Valdes & Tom Cavanagh Deliver 'Solid-Gold Entertainment'

One of my favorite relationships on The Flash is whatever dynamic that Carlos Valdes and Tom Cavanagh are bringing to life. They have such an organic and compelling chemistry that just draws you in. Whether that’s on The Flash or…

‘The Flash’ SDCC Interview: Danielle Nicolet Talks Exploring Cecile Balancing Motherhood and Work

Perhaps one of the more pleasant surprises on The Flash last season was the integration of Cecile Horton into Team Flash. No longer was she the District Attorney that Team Flash had to keep tight-lipped around, she became a part…
