[Review] The Flash (2014) Episode 2×22: “Invincible”

“Metapocalypse” is the best portmanteau I’ve heard since they invented beer monsters called “Alementals” in World Of Warcraft. Anyway, here’s this week’s all-Becky recap of CW’s The Flash.


BECKY

Episode 22 opens on absolute chaos. The city is a literal war zone between the CCPD and an army of unidentified metahumans, although longtime DC Comics fans might be able to identify a few. The Flash is running everywhere, fighting back against the “metapocalypse” and Caitlin is back with Team Flash.

[Review] The Flash (2014) Episode 2×21: “The Runaway Dinosaur”

It could have been worse – Barry could have been sucked into the Speed Schwartz in this week’s recap of CW’s The Flash.


GEORGE

When I watched this episode when it first aired, I remember not liking it. I felt it moved too slowly and, after the last couple of episodes, was lacking in excitement. Rewatching it, that first complaint goes right out the window.

[Review] The Flash (2014) Episode 2×20: “Rupture”

Have you seen this plushie? Contact Becky if you have, and meanwhile, here’s this week’s recap of CW’s The Flash.


BECKY

Okay, so I missed reviewing the last episode because I was at Dragon*Con meeting John Wesley Shipp and Rick Cosnett (#ProtectEddieThawne2017) in person. This is probably for the best because the villain that week was Griffin Grey, and that unlocks my rants about The Flash: Fastest Man Alive‘s story arc and how to do 90% of your Flash writing wrong. Starting with– nope. Not doing that.

[Review] The Flash (2014) Episode 2×17: “Flash Back”

I’d like to see you guys try to come up with clever introductory text while you’re not feeling all that well, is all I’m saying before this week’s recap of CW’s The Flash.


BECKY

So we kick off the episode with Barry regretting how once again Barry has messed up by trusting the wrong person. The wrong villain speedster.

[Review] The Flash (2014) Episode 2×14: “Escape From Earth-2”

This week, I heartily recommend this Season Two episode, although you might find the ending a little disheartening. I’m glad we had this little heart-to-heart before getting into this recap of CW’s The Flash.


GEORGE

[Review] The Flash (2014) Episode 2×13: “Welcome To Earth-2”

So it occurs to me that an alternate universe version of Joe West could theoretically be called a “poppelgänger” and you can’t fire me I’m the boss. Enjoy this recap of CW’s The Flash.


BECKY

So it’s time for the fun Elseworlds issue…uh, I mean episode of The Flash. There’s a 1940s retro aesthetic in the alternate universe of Earth-2, but more advanced technology than Team Flash has access to on Earth-1.
