The Flash: Out of Time (115)

Holy cow!  Was that the season ending?  It sure felt like it!  At least we’ll have to wait only one week and not four months to see how things are resolved.  Thank goodness for small favors.

How did our beloved cast of characters fare during this jam-packed week of mega-action?



The Central City Police Department comes under attack.

Three of this week’s top 4 characters are Central City policemen.

The Flash: Crazy for You (112)

If you’re looking for insights into the DC Universe, read no further.  No really.  Read No Further.  Is this Peek-a-Boo character a real DC villain?  Don’t know.  Obviously, Grodd is important.  He was teased in a previous episode, yet I remain as clueless as ever.  (Although The Hollywood Reporter did a nice job of filling in some specifics.)

Iris meetsLinda, Barry's lunch date.

Iris, meet Linda. Jealous yet?

Instead, let’s look at how our regulars stacked up this week.  The race for the #1 spot was this><close this week.  But… heroes will out.

Revenge of the Rogues (110): The Flash Is Back!

Wentworth Miller and Domic Purcell guest star on The Flash.

(Sing it!) Reunited and it feels so good.

The Flash pulled off a terrific casting coup (again!) by reuniting Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell.  I never watched Prison Break, but understood their relationship was what made the show a success.  (Much like Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki make Supernatural.)  Allowing them to play off each other as Captain Cold and Heat Wave was genius, and it makes them a great pair of villains.

Among the regular cast, nearly every character is interesting.  Their well-defined and continue to grow and evolve.  How did they stack up this week?

Procrastinator’s Roundup, Part 4: Terrific Tuesday

So many shows, only one night.  My poor DVR can’t keep up.  Which means I sometimes must resort to OnDemand. It’s nice that it’s available, but the broadcast networks won’t let you fast-forward through the commercials.  It’s like watching television c. 1980!


It was covered in Round-up #2.  but is included here for continuity.  It’s not the first show of the evening, nor is it currently first in my watching priority. Heck, I haven’t even watched “Paper Moon” (1004) yet.  Depending  on how the season pans out, it may deserve its own post.

The S.T.A.R. Labs experts explain things to Barry Allen.

The S.T.A.R. Labs Stars: not a softball team

Do you ever watch a show and suddenly realize you’ve got a silly grin on your face?  Turns out I’m not the only one.  I’m not in the CW’s target demographic, yet I’m totally enjoying this show.  It’s engaging on many levels.

There’s something about Grant Gustin that immediately pulls you in.  I don’t know if it’s his “boy next door” persona, or the “dorky nerd” vibe, but he is Barry Allen, chronically late forensics scientist by day, fastest man alive by night.
