‘Arrow’ season 3 lets loose its eighth installment of the year with “The Brave and the Bold,” as ‘The Flash’ comes to town to aid Oliver in pursuit of a boomerang-throwing killer, only to find the spree has deeper ties to A.R.G.U.S. and Diggle’s wife Lyla.

Well that was a LOT of fun. There are times to get super serious in the world of episodic reviews, and there are times to pass around a few beverages and raise a glass. I don’t know if this was the “best” episode of ‘The Flash,’ whatever that word really means, but it was almost certainly the most entertaining. As light on its feet as The Flash (and ‘The Flash’) has ever been, ‘Flash Versus Arrow’ delivered on the promise of its title and provided some pulpy thrills while also providing conflict for future installments.

“Beyond the Wild” opens with a scene that would make John Carpenter giggle. Reacting to Kuvira's harvesting of the Banyan-grove tree, the vines in Republic City's Spirit Wilds are out of control. Leading a tour through the entanglement, Jon Heder's Ryu is the first to stumble upon the aggressive growth. Vines attack with velocity, wrapping around the tour group and leaving only Ryu's broken camera as evidence of the attack. It's 'Legend of Korra's' horror movie moment.

‘The Flash’ Review: “Power Outage”

All shows need to figure out ways to stretch a season-long production budget, especially those with moderate to heavy special effects. So it’s not a huge surprise to get an episode of ‘The Flash’ like “Power Outage,” which functioned as something akin to a double bottle episode. Crafting a sequence like last week’s SUPERSONIC PUNCH costs a pretty penny, and sometimes that means cutting corners in other episodes. So this week’s episode turned off the superpowers for the most part, turned the lights down low, and also turned off most of my interest in the process.

‘The Legend of Korra’ Book 4 Review: “Remembrances”

There's a silver lining to to this week's 'Korra,' the least fulfilling episode in show's four-season run: The production team must be allocating all its resources for one hell of finale! Let's hope. With “Remembrances,” 'Korra' succumbs the “clip show,” a rehash exercise that's grueling no matter how much you love the characters involved.
