9/10 86% The Flash: Season 6 - Love Is A Battlefield (TV Episode) The Amunet Black-Goldface romance was harmless fun, even if it's a bit weird to root for cold blooded killers to find love; Katee Sackhoff gleefully butchers accents here and across the pond but love it or hate it, her character is roguish fun.‐ Flickering Myth

9/10 90% Batwoman: Season 1 - An Un-Birthday Present (TV Episode) The themes, the pacing, and the introduction of Beth into the fabric of this show is all pulled off so very well. Great start to the 2nd half of the season.‐ Flickering Myth

7.5/10 90% Batwoman: Season 1 - How Queer Everything Is Today! (TV Episode) Anyways, for a hum-hum episode with one of the strongest performances by any cast member (a teenage girl) in the show's short history, the ending combines to make this one still memorable.‐ Flickering Myth

8.5/10 86% Arrow: Season 8 - Green Arrow & The Canaries (TV Episode) These girls kick butt -- and infuse a new style different from all the other CW shows, which with the roster they have, that's pretty hard to do. There could be a future here.‐ Flickering Myth

8/10 79% Arrow: Season 8 - Crisis on Infinite Earths: Part Four (TV Episode) While not as steeped in Easter eggs, for the most part, this is a solid effort.‐ Flickering Myth

7/10 91% Batwoman: Season 1 - A Mad Tea-Party (TV Episode) All you can hope for is a show paying off it's ongoing plotlines and while there are issues with the Alice-Kate relationship, the major plan she put together paid off and gives Kate an even stronger threat to have to deal with.‐ Flickering Myth

5/10 80% Batwoman: Season 1 - Tell Me the Truth (TV Episode) The worst episode of the short life of this show focused on a relationship that bores me enough already - I'm ready for Crisis!‐ Flickering Myth

9.5/10 93% Batwoman: Season 1 - Crisis on Infinite Earths: Part Two (TV Episode) So much plot, so many characters, so much fun- perfect 2nd piece to this elaborate puzzle.‐ Flickering Myth

4.5/10 91% Batwoman: Season 1 - I'll Be Judge, I'll Be Jury (TV Episode) Decent villain of the week; hurt by numerous failing sub plots such as Mouse, the Crows and weak writing.‐ Flickering Myth

5.5/10 82% Batwoman: Season 1 - Mine Is a Long and a Sad Tale (TV Episode) I was disappointed when this crucial backstory now feels like a half baked episode where Mary (don't get me wrong- I love her!) orders pizza and Luke is still a total background character. This episode, to me, should have meant more.‐ Flickering Myth

7.5/10 100% Batwoman: Season 1 - Who Are You? (TV Episode) A much better crafted episode all around that was still stuffed with story beyond it's means.‐ Flickering Myth

6/10 73% Batwoman: Season 1 - Down Down Down (TV Episode) Kate and Alice's relationship is building; let's hope to a worthy breaking point. It's nice to have Thomas Elliott in this world but all of the Kate relationship drama feels like it should be in Riverdale or something.‐ Flickering Myth

7/10 67% Batwoman: Season 1 - The Rabbit Hole (TV Episode) There are some other things that the show is doing well: the cinematography looks stepped up in this show, as if it has more to show off in the big city of Gotham. The opening scene of how the resources dwindled looking for Beth is a nice visual. ‐ Flickering Myth

9/10 100% The Flash: Season 6 - Crisis on Infinite Earths: Part Three (TV Episode) A loud, bombastic, cameo filled hour with heart and a noble death- add in a shocking ending to say the least and this is a fanboy(and girl's) dream.‐ Flickering Myth

7/10 78% The Flash: Season 6 - The Last Temptation of Barry Allen, Pt. 2 (TV Episode) It felt bogged down by too much detail on unnecessary story points before bringing it back to pure, raw family emotion that this show has a bullseye on.‐ Flickering Myth

8.5/10 88% The Flash: Season 6 - The Last Temptation of Barry Allen, Pt. 1 (TV Episode) A maddening crisis conscience in a dream sleep dominates this week's episode in grand and creepy fashion with real existential and honest emotions swirling around in- a great, great episode.‐ Flickering Myth

7.5/10 91% Arrow: Season 8 - Purgatory (TV Episode) Not as strong as last week's episode, but delved into Oliver's heart maybe more than many other episodes and it's nice to have these even at the end of the series.‐ Flickering Myth

82% Arrow: Season 8 - Reset (TV Episode) Groundhog Day, Edge of Tomorrow, whatever timeloop fan favorite film you want to bring up, Arrow succeeds in an inventive and introspective way in episode 6 of its final season.‐ Flickering Myth

8.5/10 88% The Flash: Season 6 - Kiss Kiss Breach Breach (TV Episode) Cisco and Kamilla, but mostly Cisco carries this episode and proves, when written well, he can be the focal point of the show, at least for small periods.‐ Flickering Myth

6/10 78% The Flash: Season 6 - Dead Man Running (TV Episode) It was a pretty slow episode this week honestly.‐ Flickering Myth

7.5/10 100% Arrow: Season 8 - Prochnost (TV Episode) The future episodes last season showed Mia and William were interesting and layered characters and those scenes really pay off having them with Oliver and it shines here.‐ Flickering Myth

8/10 100% Arrow: Season 8 - Present Tense (TV Episode) The Deathstroke plotline was pedestrian: the real, pure emotions of these never should-be reunions were not.‐ Flickering Myth

8/10 88% The Flash: Season 6 - There Will Be Blood (TV Episode) Nash Wells is also a highlight this week; he's a bit like a lot of other Wells wrapped into a fun, Indiana Jones package; the digs at Cisco are always welcome when noticing his "shoddy workmanship" gives that warm Wells feeling. ‐ Flickering Myth

7/10 100% Arrow: Season 8 - Leap of Faith (TV Episode) Thea has long been a bright shining light on Arrow so it was a joy to have her back- other than that, even a somewhat major character's death doesn't crack the wall of being new, exciting or even different.‐ Flickering Myth

6/10 92% Arrow: Season 8 - Welcome to Hong Kong (TV Episode) This was a very rote episode of Arrow -- we've seen many like it and while mechanically it's fine, I was expecting more.‐ Flickering Myth

7.5/10 100% The Flash: Season 6 - A Flash of the Lightning (TV Episode) There are some other nice moments here: the highlight being Jesse L. Martin doing what he does best: giving inspiring speeches with nearly a tear in his eye.‐ Flickering Myth

100% Arrow: Season 8 - Starling City (TV Episode) An interesting start that's a bit hard to gauge if it can sustain whatever it is they are building.‐ Flickering Myth

100% Batwoman: Season 1 - Pilot (TV Episode) Ruby Rose looks poised to give us raw action and sex appeal and possibly some cheesy drama to boot.‐ Flickering Myth

100% The Flash: Season 6 - Into the Void (TV Episode) Welcome back to Central City! Season 6 kicks off with everything you get in The Flash package: action, drama and a whole lot of science!‐ Flickering Myth

6.5/10 50% The Flash: Season 5 - The Girl With The Red Lightning (TV Episode) More issues with Cicada and everything surrounding her bog down this episode and pull us faster into a finale that feels like just another episode. ‐ Flickering Myth

5.5/10 60% The Flash: Season 5 - Snow Pack (TV Episode) One good scene to kick us off hot tonight is quickly cooled off with boring Snow family drama.‐ Flickering Myth

8.5/10 83% The Flash: Season 5 - Time Bomb (TV Episode) All the buildup to that reveal was well worth it and both Grant Gustin (with ever so slight tears in his eyes) and Jessica Parker Kennedy (as the ever lovely and talented Nora) killed it, as well as Tom Cavanagh.‐ Flickering Myth

8/10 91% The Flash: Season 5 - Godspeed (TV Episode) A whole episode of Nora, Godspeed's debut on The Flash and heavy dramatic consequences that mean something elevate this episode.‐ Flickering Myth

7.5/10 67% The Flash: Season 5 - Failure is an Orphan (TV Episode) Jessica Parker Kennedy is everything for me this season and despite my high hopes of Cicada vanishing tonight, there were enough scenes that really did their job and the main narrative moved along at just the right pace.‐ Flickering Myth

7.7/10 83% The Flash: Season 5 - Cause and XS (TV Episode) Another Nora-centric episode...perfect. This is an easy episode though; a lot of the shots are the same, so it's like a copy and paste art project almost.‐ Flickering Myth

8/10 100% The Flash: Season 5 - King Shark vs. Gorilla Grodd (TV Episode) The fight was everything, Joe returning only sets the show back on course, and best of all -- no Cicada!!!‐ Flickering Myth

8/10 92% The Flash: Season 5 - Goldfaced (TV Episode) Fun, fun episode and it shows that Ralph's got a lot to offer on the team still...or is he funnier when Cisco is gone? Plus, not much Cicada so that helps as well!‐ Flickering Myth

4/10 85% The Flash: Season 5 - Seeing Red (TV Episode) Huge disappointment on all fronts -- tone, story, acting, excitement. One of the worst Flash episodes in the history of the show to me.‐ Flickering Myth
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2019
7/10 100% The Flash: Season 5 - Memorabilia (TV Episode) Nora's storyline continues to pull me along but Cicada's is dragging down what I thought was going to be a banner season for The Flash; we're still early and there's still time.‐ Flickering Myth
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2019
7/10 92% The Flash: Season 5 - The Flash & The Furious (TV Episode) A fairly pedestrian episode with a lot of major characters either missing entirely or missing in action as Nora (fairly competently) holds her own as our title character this week.‐ Flickering Myth
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2019
8/10 93% The Flash: Season 5 - What's Past is Prologue (TV Episode) This was a Nora episode; she got a huge spotlight to shine and she did not disappoint. ‐ Flickering Myth

8.5/10 100% The Flash: Season 5 - Elseworlds, Part 1 (TV Episode) Any crossover featuring the excellent Tyler Hoechlin as Superman is a big step up though.‐ Flickering Myth

7.5/10 93% The Flash: Season 5 - O Come, All Ye Thankful (TV Episode) With Cicada's own personal journey of becoming a surrogate parent and it seems like a solid episode; and it wasn't bad but the villain of the week, while topical, didn't do it for me. ‐ Flickering Myth
Read More | Posted Apr 24, 2019
8.5/10 94% The Flash: Season 5 - All Doll'd Up (TV Episode) No Cicada this week but I think the villain they chose is CREEPY, and memorable and a great character; very glad to see him make his debut even in a kind of rushed tale. ‐ Flickering Myth

5.5/10 75% The Flash: Season 5 - The Icicle Cometh (TV Episode) I can't grade this too highly as there wasn't much I liked, I'm sorry Caitlin, you deserve better. ‐ Flickering Myth

100% The Flash: Season 5 - News Flash (TV Episode) This was a great episode. The opening "family breakfast" defines what The Flash is all about. Great, smart, character driven writing.‐ Flickering Myth

9/10 88% The Flash: Season 5 - The Death of Vibe (TV Episode) A very good entertaining episode and I loved the pacing of all of the storylines. It didn't feel overwhelmed and even with the 'Death of Vibe' which is arguable if that character really is central to the show (Cisco is) so we'll see.‐ Flickering Myth

9.5/10 100% The Flash: Season 5 - Nora (TV Episode) That's it, I don't have many complaints, this felt like a season 1 and 2 episode and I loved just about all of it. We saw our big bad of the season and it looks a bit like, well, I'll not spoil it, but label me curiosity piqued! ‐ Flickering Myth

7.5/10 100% The Flash: Season 5 - Blocked (TV Episode) Coming down from the high point of the premiere and a really innocuous villain plot for episode 2 and even Nora seems to have lost a lot of her dialogue and enthusiasm since week 1.‐ Flickering Myth
