The Flash Review: “Abra Kadabra” Is Far from Magical in This Mediocre Episode

by Jeff Fountainon March 29, 2017
After last week’s song and dance episode, I was looking forward to The Flash sinking their collective teeth back into Savitar story line The sad thing was they did, to an extent, but the whole episode came off as bland and dull, with only a few moments that had me actually paying attention. I’m not […]

The Flash Review: The Endgame Begins in “The Wrath of Savitar”

by Jeff Fountainon March 11, 2017
Spending time with Grodd and the super gorillas over the last two weeks was loads of fun and well done, with great action, storytelling and acting. However, after all the back slapping for a job well done subsided it occurred to me that it was almost that time in the season for things to take […]


The Flash Review: Here Come the Gorillas in “Attack on Central City”

by Jeff Fountainon March 1, 2017
While I was happy The Flash was coming right back this week and following up the adventures in Gorilla City on Earth 2 with “Attack on Central City”, I was a little worried that there would be some kind of letdown. Thankfully, the writer’s stuck to the strengths of The Flash, that being the characters, […]

The Flash Review: Training and Waiting in “Untouchable”

by Jeff Fountainon February 8, 2017
While this week might have been a filler episode in terms of the villain, it did have multiple plot points that were quite useful in terms of moving the overall story along. That being said, “Untouchable” still felt at times like it was treading water, staying far too long in the same place which kind […]


The Flash Review: Time Travel Twist in “Borrowing Problems From the Future”

by Jeff Fountainon January 25, 2017
Before the winter break, we got a glimpse into the future as Barry watched Savitar kill Iris right in front of him. While I found it interesting, I was more concerned with The Flash spending far too much time upon it’s’ return on time travel, changing the future and saving Iris. I’ve almost had my […]

The Flash Review: Crossover Event “Invasion!” Cranks up the Fun

by Jeff Fountainon November 30, 2016
All you need to know about this crossover event is this: Aliens versus superheroes. That’s it. No need to go any deeper than that and really, on that level, The Flash’s part of this event was a lot of fun. There were small amounts of plot that the writers threw in just to keep the […]


The Flash Review: Time for Some Fun In “The New Rogues”

by Jeff Fountainon October 26, 2016
With all the heavy lifting The Flash has done recently in regards to time travel and the Flashpoint storyline, “The New Rogues” was a great way to take time out and simply have some fun, showing off the great chemistry these actors have while still managing to throw in a few dramatic moments just to […]

The Flash Review: Time Travel Reality Check in “Paradox”

by Jeff Fountainon October 12, 2016
With the season premiere leaving me a bit underwhelmed and this episode centering on time travel, again, I was really not getting a good vibe on where this season was headed. However, “Paradox” was solid, taking a long hard look at the ramifications of Barry’s jaunts through time and just how everyone was affected by […]


The Flash Review: Another Dance with Time in “Flashpoint”

by Jeff Fountainon October 5, 2016
In its first two seasons The Flash has, for the most part, been able to balance the quirky humor and fun with more serious issues and ideas. The show has invited us in to its world and made us actually care about the characters and what goes on in their lives. The season three premier […]

The Flash Season 2 Finale Review: Surprises and Disappointments in “The Race of His Life”

by Jeff Fountainon May 25, 2016
As I mentioned numerous times while reviewing The Flash this season, the whole Zoom storyline, while interesting at first, was quickly turning into a mess. Big buildups and letdowns lead to the showdown in the finale that included the master plan that Zoom had been moving towards all along that left me…uninterested. Frankly, the end […]
