[Review] The Flash (2014) Episode 3×19: “The Once and Future Flash”

A possible major VFX error gives George a coronary in this week’s recap of CW’s The Flash.


This week starts with Barry figuring out that he needs to travel to 2024 to get his answers. Iris is in the room with him, but she’s distant. She makes Barry promise that if Savitar does kill her, that he’ll be there for Joe. Barry promises, but then the alarm at S.T.A.R. Labs cuts the conversation off.

[Review] The Flash (2014) Episode 3×18: “Abra Kadabra”

Your friendly neighborhood producer Dayna would like to remind you all that if someone asks you not to take off their necklace, you say YES! Enjoy this recap of the CW’s The Flash.


The opening dives right into the action with Abra Kadabra introducing himself to the security guards at the soon-to-be-shuttered Stagg Industries. He’s working the magician gimmick so hard I’m surprised he didn’t appear looking like this:

Just want to add a quick “fuck you” to my brain for making me remember Phantasio.

[Review] The Flash (2014) Episode 3×16: “Into the Speed Force”

Speed Force Representative sounds like something speedsters should put on their résumés on this week’s recap of CW’s The Flash.


We start this episode with Barry deciding that he’s got to go back into the Speed Force to get Wally.

That was fast.

[Review] The Flash (2014) Episode 3×15: “The Wrath of Savitar”

It’s my husband’s and my anniversary today so I’m gonna be lazy with the intro. Enjoy this recap of CW’s The Flash.


I owe you all an apology. I’ve been slacking on these reviews, and while I have many justifications, I don’t really have a good reason. At the end of the day, I’m afraid these aren’t very good and I’m doing this show that so many people love a disservice by being endlessly negative about it. I think part of the problem is that doing an episode every two weeks kills any momentum I have, so I’m going to try to start getting these out once a week from now on. Damn the fears, full speed ahead and whatnot…I have no idea what the fuck I’m saying.

[Review] The Flash (2014) Episode 3×14: “Attack On Central City”

George says I’m not allowed to make any more “Africa” jokes so this episode is just going to focus on the gorilla your dreams. Enjoy this recap of CW’s The Flash.


Ah, Valentine’s Day. Some view it as a romantic holiday and look forward to sharing it with someone special every year. Some view it as a cheap, exploitative money grab concocted by the Hallmark corporation. Either way you see it, I think we can all agree that it lends itself towards super-lame episodes of TV, second only to Christmas/holiday episodes in terms of emotional manipulation centered around a specific date or season.

[Review] The Flash (2014) Episode 3×12: “Untouchable”

After a super fun trip to the hospital (I got better), we now return to your irregularly-scheduled reviews. Seems like nothing really…*sunglasses*…phases us. Enjoy this recap of CW’s The Flash.


This week is all about belief in yourself. Wally is being taught the fine art of phasing through objects, but is having a hard time wrapping his head around it.

[Review] The Flash (2014) Episode 3×11: “Dead Or Alive”

The title of this episode got Bon Jovi stuck in my head so I’m gonna blare that on my iTunes and rock the hell out while y’all read this recap of CW’s The Flash.


To get this out of the way: I will not be typing that name. At all. I know it’s a plot point later on between Cisco and her, but she will be known in these reviews as Cynthia Reynolds. Her superhero name is a word that is a slur against the Romani people and here at Made Of Fail, we try our damnedest to be as inclusive and open as possible.

[Review] The Flash (2014) Episode 3×10: “Borrowing Problems From the Future”

It’s gonna take me a lot to drag George to review. There’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do. I bless the rains down in this recap of CW’s The Flash.


Sorry this one’s late, folks. I was in the editing mines trying to get the final episode of Made Of Fail ready for its tenth anniversary. Speaking of, you should click the link and go listen if you haven’t yet.
