REVIEW: The Flash – Season 8, Episode 12 “Death Rises”

“Death Rises” is what I call a connective tissue episode, made necessary by 20-plus-episode seasons (see also: the filler episode and the bottle episode) and existing mostly to move the plot along between high points. These are never anyone’s favorite episodes, and “Death Rises” doesn’t ...

REVIEW: The Flash – Season 8, Episode 11 “Resurrection”

REVIEW: The Flash – Season 8, Episode 8 “The Fire Next Time”

The Flash has been (mostly) on a hot streak this season, and “The Fire Next Time” keeps the heat burning. While not a spectacular episode on its face – and marred by a muddled subplot – it’s a great examination of one of the often-overlooked factors that turned Barry into a hero. It’s al...
