​The Flash Meets His Greatest Foe Yet: The Astonishing Douchebag

This was not a good episode of The Flash. In fact, this was an outright bad episode of The Flash, absolutely the creative nadir of the show so far, with a freak of the week so shockingly uncreative even Smallville would take it to task. Here's are the episode's many problems… and its few good points. » 11/19/14 11:40am Wednesday 11:40am

The Flash Battles Bombs, Booze And Bad, Bad Clancy Brown

Captain Boomerang Is One Stylish Boomerang Thrower On Arrow

Check out the first look at Spartacus' Nick Tarabay as long-time Flash rogue Captain Boomerang, who will be making his inaugural appearance on Arrow later this season! (Don't worry, he's already slated to come to The Flash series, too). For a dude carrying multiple boomerangs on him, he's looking dapper as hell. » 10/20/14 6:40am 10/20/14 6:40am

​The Flash Premiere, As Explained Solely In Speed Metaphors

There's literally no non-obnoxious way for me to tell you The Flash pilot… well, it moves a bit too fast. It also starts clumsily, much like Barry Allen does when discovering his powers, and eventually finds its step. But I have no doubt the show will find its stride and finish strong! And now that we've gotten that » 10/08/14 12:00pm 10/08/14 12:00pm

​8 Things From The Flash Comics The TV Show Desperately Needs To Avoid

We couldn't be more excited about The Flash TV series, debuting on October 7th. But that's doesn't mean we're not a little worried, too. The Flash comics are filled with goofiness, weirdness and a touch of pure stupidity that we hope never make it to the TV show — here's eight "Flash facts" the show can skip. » 9/09/14 10:30am 9/09/14 10:30am

Barry Allen Feels Under The Weather (Wizard) In New Flash Trailer

Yeah, I'm not proud of writing "feels under the Weather Wizard," but I'm too excited about the premiere of The Flash to really care. Every new bit of footage looks great, and you know Barry is going to have to dissipate a tornado by running around it in the opposite direction.
