Critic reviews for Fallout

The Flash put a giant evil telepathic monkey on screen, is going to make him a credible if insane villain! This is really happening, people!

Even if this episode sometimes came across more as a backdoor pilot for a Firestorm spinoff than an actual Flash episode, it was definitely an entertaining watch.

"Fallout" did what The Flash does best for nearly its entire runtime.

Shows that you don't necessarily need a metahuman antagonist to give the good guys someone worthwhile to fight against.

"The Nuclear Man" may have been all set-up for "Fallout," but it paid off in a (mostly) satisfactory way with plenty of nods to Firestorm's comic origins.

This week, we get to see Professor Stein and Ronnie Raymond separated... plenty of humor as the two men bicker like The Odd Couple over being roomies in such close quarters for so long.
