Monkeys Fighting Robots

This series will be a brief, semi-comedic review of the CW superhero shows. You can check out last week’s review post here. The only shows discussed will be ‘Arrow’, ‘Flash’, and ‘Supergirl’. There WILL be some spoilers discussed, so only look at the reviews you’re up to date on!

2. The Flash, “Therefore I Am” (Nov 21st)

THE FLASH has a classic “who is the bad guy REALLY” episode, and it REALLY doesn’t work. The whole episode is about how no one believes Barry that Clifford’s The Thinker. But at the end, Barry says Clifford said he’s The Thinker, and everyone believes him? Like, no more explanation needed? Where’s the logic in that?! The shoehorned wedding subtext & bland “bitter genius” villain backstory is also uninteresting. Aside from a funny Thinker-Reverse-Flash wheelchair joke, this episode was a real disappointment.

SCORE: 6.5/10 Devoes
