‘The Flash’ Review: “Things You Can’t Outrun”

The Flash Things You Can't Outrun 1

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.

‘The Flash’ Review: “Fastest Man Alive”

The Flash Season Trailer Captain Cold Felicity Time Travel
The CW

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.

The good far outweighs the bad, and much of the bad can be easily fixed over time.
