DC: Universe Rebirth Review

I’m not the biggest fan of DC in the world. Heck, I’m not even sure I’d call myself a big comics fan. Sure, I do love many comic books, but as far as comic “universes” go? I don’t really care. I read runs people recommend me, I pick out specific graphic novels — I love the stories for what they are. DC: Universe Rebirth is the initial issue of DC’s new big crossover event, though it may not be the […]

The Flash Season 2 Episode 4 Review – “The Fury of Firestorm”

I’m a few episodes ahead of my reviews at the moment, and I was briefly excited to write this one thinking it was the next episode. That’s right, I completely forgot that this episode existed, which may go to show right away what I thought about it. You’d think it would be more memorable, as this episode introduces one of the new halves of Firestorm — Jefferson Jackson, played by Franz Drameh. The story sees the Flash Team trying to track […]

The Flash Season 2 Episode 3 Review – “Family of Rogues”

The Flash‘s “Rogue” episodes, all featuring Leonard Snart (Captain Cold) and sometimes extending to his sometimes partner Mick Rory (Heatwave) and sister, Lisa Snart (Golden Glider), have been a little bit hit and miss. Though it has to be said that Wentworth Miller always puts in a great, though somewhat hammy, performance as Captain Cold. As the main non-meta human villains in the snow, all using special powered guns (ice, fire, and… gold, somehow?), they provide a nice reprieve from […]

Constantine Season One Review

That’s right, I’m putting “season one” in the title even though there’s probably never going to be a second one. This NBC television adaptation of John Constantine, Hellblazer was cancelled after only 13 episodes. It’s a real shame, as there was some elements of the season that I really, really liked. But on the other hand it’s also quite flawed. Either way, when watching it knowing it got cancelled, that fact hangs over it like a curse, and becomes hard to separate […]

The Flash Season 2 Episode 2 Review – “Flash of Two Worlds”

This episode picks right up from where the last episode left off, with the mysterious man called Jay Garrick (played by Teddy Sears) warning the Flash team that they are in danger. The metal lighting bolt helmet that appeared through the wormhole in the final episode of the last season belongs to him. Turns out he is from the same world as Atom Smasher, an alternate Earth, and he’s The Flash from that world. Garrick was torn from his world through […]

The Flash Season 2 Episode 1 Review – “The Man Who Saved Central City”

I wasn’t sure what to make of The Flash at first, but I grew to love the first season, as cheesy as it could be at times. With that said, the ending wasn’t fantastic. I don’t usually like when TV seasons end on cliffhangers. Strangely the first episode of The Flash doesn’t open with the resolving of the horrific cataclysm terrorizing Central City, but 6 months down the line, the same as Arrow Season 4 — the same gap of time […]

The Flash Season 1 Review

Mention the word “metahuman” to me in a TV show and all I will be able to think about is the bad water CGI from the second episode of DC’s 2002 Birds of Prey TV series. It wasn’t a totally bad TV series, but it made me a little apprehensive about the Arrowverse’s move away from “realism” into straight superhero powers with its spin-off, The Flash. Barry Allen, played by Grant Gustin (a wonderfully superhero-esque name) was initially introduced in Arrow Season […]
