'The Flash' Review: "Plastique"

We’re in that phase of ‘The Flash’ in which what’s new has worn off and the season’s true narrative hasn’t yet arrived. As such, we’re in a holding pattern, in which the same basic moves are repeated until the audience learns what’s what in the world of Central City. As mentioned in the last recap, this is all perfectly fine, and even though "Plastique" was a step down from "Going Rogue," it still has some core things that suggest long-term health for the show.

'Wonder Woman' will be the first solo female superhero film to grace the big screen since 2005's best-forgotten 'Elektra,' and with fans clamoring for a female superhero movie, it has the distinct pleasure of having a metric ton of expectations placed on its figurative shoulders. WB has made the right call in deciding to hire a female director, and one of the names that's been tossed round online is Lexi Alexander, who previously directed 'Punisher: War Zone' -- but you can go ahead and cross her name off the list because according to her, she's definitely not interested in the job.

The Problem With Harley Quinn...

by Chris Sims November 11, 2014 08:00 AM
That's the kind of aesthetic that produced Harley Quinn, and it's worth noting that she was created almost by accident. When she first appears in "Joker's Favor," it's as a one-note joke, a gag character designed to set up the twist of the episode, that the Joker hounds and stalks and threatens this poor nobody over the course of years so that he can open a door as part of a larger scheme. Keep that in mind, too, because the secret of that episode is that it's also Harley Quinn's entire story in miniature.
