[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.

[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.

[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.

Kicking this one off with some domestic bliss between Barry and…Cisco?
