REVIEW: The Flash – Season 8, Episode 14 “Funeral for a Friend”

“Funeral for a Friend,” a reference to the comic book story that chronicled the aftermath of “The Death of Superman” (as opposed to the Elton John song), is the inevitable follow-up to Frost’s death in “Death Falls.” It’s a quiet episode with very little superhero action, focusing on...

REVIEW: The Flash – Season 8, Episode 13 “Death Falls”

There’d been whispers that “Death Falls” would feature a big event, specifically a death. My mind went to several bad places, wondering if The Flash would lose another instrumental character, someone we’d grown to love over the years. What happens is big, sad, and impactful in ways both pers...

REVIEW: The Flash – Season 8, Episode 9 “Phantoms”

Not only does “Phantoms” continue a great run for The Flash, but like the show’s hero, it does the impossible: it made me like Chester. It couldn’t pull off the same feat with another obnoxious character who almost sinks her subplot, and there are some details revealed this week that don’t...
