“All Doll’d Up” Review of S5E5 of THE FLASH

This week we find a version of Ragdoll that seems pulled straight out of Secret Six, just as creepy as the Gail Simone and Dale Eaglesham creation. We find Nora and Iris still working through their estrangement. And, the hunt continues for Caitlin’s dad, with help from a still-wounded Vibe. Lot’s of parent issues in this episode…and one of the best episodes of the young season.  Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!

“When Harry Met Harry” Review of S4 Ep6 of THE FLASH

All this plus the debut of the DCTV version of Black Bison! Want to know more? Follow us after the jump!

Tonight, Ralph Dibny enters the TV world of THE FLASH in an episode directed by Tom Cavanagh. So, how long can I “stretch” this intro (pun intended)? Let’s get to the review, right after the jump!
