‘The Flash’ 4×16 Review: ‘Run, Iris, Run’

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…

‘The Flash’ 4×15 Review: ‘Enter Flashtime’

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…

DCTV: What’s In a Team?

Most of the DCTV shows – all but Black Lightning to date – work off the same formula. Part of that formula involves the use of a team to support the hero, provide exposition and explanation, and justify the addition…

‘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 liking…

DCTV Crossovers I Want to See (That Will Never Happen)

The annual DCTV crossover may be met with mixed reactions in fandom, but that doesn’t stop me from thinking about ones I would love to see. Some crossovers I would particularly love to see will never happen due to differing…

‘The Flash’ 4×13 Review: ‘True Colors’

It was only a matter of time. It was only a matter of time that Barry Allen was freed from Iron Heights. I just didn’t expect it to go down the way it did. In The Flash’s latest hour, we…

The Flash’s Caitlin Snow Problem

I’ve written before about the problematic treatment of women on DCTV. The Flarrowverse has some of my favorite shows, but I’ve written before about how more than one woman in this universe deserves better than they’ve been given. However, this…

'The Flash' 4×12 Review: ‘Honey, I Shrunk Team Flash’

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,…

‘The Flash’ 4×11 Review: What It Means To Be A Hero

A Letter from Wally West A.K.A. Kid Flash

Dear Flarrowverse Fans, Wally West here. If you guys haven’t heard the news, I’m gonna be leaving Central City for a while, and I honestly don’t know when I’ll be back. I’ve often heard that every hero has his/her own…

“We Are the Flash”: Welcome to Metaphors!

Ever since the “Mixed Signals” episode of this season’s The Flash, there have been people (calling some of them “fans” verges on overstatement) who have taken exception to Iris’s line: “You aren’t the Flash, Barry. We are.” For the past…

‘The Flash’ 4×10 Review: ‘The Trial of the Flash’

When it comes to my relationship with The Flash — the TV show, not the superhero, duh — it’s something that’s been a rocky road. In the first season, things were smooth sailing. A budding young hero with good intentions.…

Why We Need a ‘Black Lightning’ and ‘The Flash’ Crossover

It’s already been widely reported that Black Lightning will exist separately from the Arrowverse and there are currently no plans for the new series to crossover with any of the veteran CW shows. Having just finished a crossover (and a…

The Best and Worst of DCTV This Season

Since we’re about halfway through the current seasons of the DCTV shows, it seems a good time to reflect on the best and worst each show has had to offer this year. Well, the second worst, at least. The worst…

‘The Flash’ 4×09 Review: ‘Don’t Run’

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,…

'Crisis on Earth-X' Roundtable

Crisis on Earth-X: Olicity and Westallen Get Their Happy Beginnings

There’s no denying that the latest DCTV crossover event was the biggest to date. It was also the most impressive in terms of scale and emotions. This felt like a four-hour movie in every way. It was the best yet…

‘Flash’ & ‘Supergirl’ EP Andrew Kreisberg Fired

It’s about damn time. A little over to weeks ago Andrew Kreisberg, the co-creator/executive producer of The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and Arrow, was suspended from his duties over allegations of sexual harassment, and yet, it wasn’t till today that the studio in charge of these…

‘The Flash’ 4×08 Review: ‘Crisis on Earth-X, Part 3’

‘Supergirl’ 3×08 Review: ‘Crisis on Earth-X, Part 1’

As far as crossovers go, in just the first hour of this year’s four-part mini movie, I have full confidence in saying this is my favorite crossover yet. Wedding bells in the air for WestAllen. Olicity cuteness and angst. Karamel…

‘The Flash’: Four Reasons I’m Thankful for Westallen

I am – as one might have already guessed – a hopeless fangirl of superhero media. This is a week to remember all that makes us thankful – the significant and the mundane. On a less serious note, as I…
