Sorry for the misdirect, the real name of this article is : Why the writer of the Flash should not be allowed to write stories about females.
If you haven’t noticed by now, I’m big into synecdoches. There’s a lot of situations where one little aspect of a piece of media is indicative of a broader philosophy, and when you look at the big picture thinking about this philosophy, you can see how it all works together.
What are the strong points of Supergirl and Flash? There’s several things they do well, but in particular being the bright, optimistic shows should be one of them. The last season for both shows... was not quite that. This last year gave us some good stuff, some bad stuff, and some frustrating stuff. So let’s take…
Darkness, temporal and probably temporary lack of parents! Welcome to the reaction Thread for tonight’s Flash episode. I will be joining you once I get home. Though I will probably be a bit drunk. See you on the other side!
This is late! But that’s OK. At least for me ‘cause I just got home! And I’m kinda tipsy and I kinda forgot I was the one who posted these threads. So... Discuss!
The WB’s DC based shows have been, as a whole, a delight. Their wholehearted embrace of the source material and ability to deliver it to live action in a fun way has made them must-see-TV for many fans, and has turned many non-fans on to the often quirky charms of the superhero genre.
The DC Universe shown in the CW shows is a tragedy. I’m not saying that as an insult; I actually quite enjoy the shows and they’ve had some very strong stories and crafted some excellent adaptations of beloved DC characters. But in the theatrical sense, based on the definition of ‘stories where the protagonist fails…
One of the things I was most excited about in The Flash Season 2 was the introduction of Jesse Quick. This made me happier than the appearance of Wally West because I knew that was inevitable, but Jesse was an unexpected treat. It also helped that Violett Beane managed to balance her youth and brilliance with such…
Finales can be difficult. They wrap up the current storyline, and set up the next. They have to create enough emotional investment that fans anxiously await the next season. Let’s talk about whether or not Flash was able to do that. Spoilers ahoy!
We finally get to see Katie Cassidy’s premiere as Black Siren on last night’s episode of Flash, and she totally stole the show in my opinion. It’s the penultimate episode, and things are really getting heated. Let’s talk about it, spoilers ahoy!
Rupture: noun rup·ture \ˈrəp(t)-shər\: a crack or break in something; medical : a break or tear in a part of the body; a break in good relations between people or countries. Which definition did you think that this episode conveyed? Spoilers ahoy!
We get a first look at Barry without his powers (again). We resolve a few loose ends plotwise. Then we see the set-up for the next showdown with Zoom. While mostly a filler episode, there were a few ‘big’ things happening in this episode. Spoilers ahoy.
It’s showdown time between Flash and Zoom this week as we get into the home stretch. There’s only five episodes left this season. We also see the Flash side of the Supergirl tie-in. Spoilers ahoy!
Last night’s episode of The Flash “Flash Back” perfectly illustrated how a TV show can completely recreate the feel of its comic book source material. Where so many adaptations fail in their execution by being slavishly devoted to the source material, and this episode could have done that, this episode succeeded with…
This was a fun episode in the most comic booky, campy, kinda way. I laughed at the absurdness of it all and in general found it amusing. Others might nit-pick, but I think this show emulates exactly what a Flash comic feels like, time travel paradoxes and all.
I don’t know how, but the DC Television side of things is absolutely killing it right now. The studios designated the TV-verse (DCTVU?) as the little sibling, with the big, mature movies being the priority. Sure, they call it the Multiverse, but if Batman v Superman: et al. is Earth Prime, I want to live in Earth 2. I…
Cage match of ideas! Fight! I think we all know that DC/Warner has missteped, but my theory is that they’ve pretty much done the “missed the trees for the forest” thing here.
One month was too long after that stupid cliffhanger, but the Flash is back and the scene is getting set for the finial stretch of this season it looks like. “Trajectory” wasn’t just a solid episode, it was a good pivot point as well. Spoilers ahoy!
Here is a random MST3K gif for those who want to avoid any and all spoilers, including promotional art and synopsis.
When King Shark was just a minor bad guy that was littler more than a running joke it was a disappointment. Last night’s episode totally made up for that right here. There’s also a minor Arrow crossover with a bit of a spoiler, so be aware. Let’s talk about the latest episode of The Flash. Spoilers ahoy!
