REVIEW: The Flash – Season 7, Episode 12 “Good-Bye Vibrations”

Why does The Flash insist on sending off its departing stars with lackluster episodes? Harrison Wells got the dull, weightless “All’s Wells That Ends Wells,” and now Cisco is stuck with “Good-Bye Vibrations” (because he used to be Vibe, hardy-har-har). While the final moments are fitting f...

REVIEW: The Flash – Season 7, Episode 11 “Family Matters Part 2”

REVIEW: The Flash – Season 7, Episode 7 “Growing Pains”

“Growing Pains” is more important than it feels. It doesn’t add much to the season’s arc, but it takes two of the main characters in the direction the show wants them to go. However, while one is generally handled well, the other is rushed and short-shrifted, feeling like an afterthought whe...
