Practice makes perfect. That holds true for superheroes as well as television shows about superheroes. So it makes sense that 'The Flash' is essentially repeating the same steps week after week in order to get the basics down pat before getting into more adventurous stuff down the road. “Things You Can’t Outrun” is by no means a bad episode, but it doesn’t provide a lot in terms of new elements.
'Arrow' spinoff 'The Flash' has speedily become one of the better-received series of the year, let alone its success for the CW, making the latest update seem somewhat slow by comparison. The DC sci-fi drama has officially been given a full season order for its back 9 episodes, along with fellow CW success 'Jane the Virgin.'
'Arrow' season 3 has played host to a wealth of DC comics additions in only its first few weeks, with plenty more on the way, so why not keep adding to the list? Fresh off supervillainous turns in 'The Cape' and 'X-Men' universes, Vinnie Jones will take up his next comic baddie role in 'Arrow' season 3 as DC villain "Brick."
‘Arrow’ season 3 lets loose its second installment of the year with season premiere followup “Sara,” as the team grapples with Sara's death, and Roy is forced to reveal Thea's whereabouts, while in flashback Oliver acclimates to his new Hong Kong surroundings, and has a chance encounter with Tommy (Colin Donnell).
Last year we wouldn't help taking note of the many TV reboots of recent movies in the works, but this year (and especially the last few weeks) the trend has really exploded. Next on the conveyor belt is none other than 2006 Edward Norton-Jessica Biel magician drama 'The Illusionist' (no, not 'The Prestige'), with a new reboot from 'True Blood' writer Mark Hudis.
Second episodes of television shows are hard. They might be the hardest one a show ever has to pull off, since it has to establish the template by which the show moves from pilot to actual series. Gone is the burden of having to set up a world, but present is the burden of having to build it out on a weekly basis. A show has to plan for the future but stay entertaining in the present. “Fastest Man Alive” represents 'The Flash' experiencing a few growing pains as it makes its shift into weekly entertainment, but it’s by no means a bad episode. The good far outweighs the bad, and much of the bad can be easily fixed over time.
On Thursday, September 25, 'How to Get Away with Murder' lit the blogosphere on fire. The series, executive produced by 'Scandal' creator Shonda Rhimes, featured actors Jack Falahee and Conrad Ricamora in flagrante, fiercely making out with each other before ripping each others' clothes off. The following week, these two were at it again, "only this time, I get to do you," said Ricamora's Oliver. And that's apparently only a steamy preview of what's coming up.
Yesterday morning 'The Flash' sped out some exceptionally spoilery photos of the DC hero facing his greatest nemesis, but the series was far from finished flashing its latest wares. Not only has the 'Arrow' spinoff added veteran actor Victor Garber in a familiar DC role to compliment some new Firestorm photos, but so too will 'Smash' star Andy Mientus portray openly-gay DC villain "Pied Piper" in upcoming episodes.
And lo, 'Arrow' season 3 has finally premiered with last night's action-packed "The Calm," beginning a new day in Starling City that came with the cost of a fan-favorite character. Now, producers explain their motivations behind the shocking death for the season to come, while an intriguing new detail has emerged on recent rumors that Liam Neeson might return to the role of Ra's al Ghul.
Fans of 'The Flash,' both in his comic and CW incarnations have known that the new hit series would inevitably reach the Fastest Man Alive's greatest nemesis, and that day has arrived faster than we could have hoped. Take a good look at Professor Zoom, aka Reverse Flash, in some speedy new set photos from an upcoming episode of 'The Flash'!
