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, “True Colors” (Feb 6th)

There’s a lot about this episode that doesn’t make sense. Barry leading his former foes out of prison is an interesting central conflict for sure. But beyond that basic premise, the episode takes weird turns. Barry’s freed justly by pretending like DeVoe isn’t actually dead? How does that lie fit into his moral code? Why must Thinker constantly body-hop? Will his other body stick around? What exactly has turned Mrs. Thinker against her husband? Will we meet all 12 metas before the season ends? And how does Elongated Man’s powers allow him to change his race? This episode leaves more annoying questions than satisfying action, making it one of the weaker episodes of the season.

SCORE: 6/10 Pool Boys
