Warning! Do not proceed if you are not all caught up!

Last month the fall finale of The Flash saw The Trixter (Mark Hamill) up to his usual hijinks, but this time he recruited The Weather Wizard and Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller). Cold warns Barry (Grant Gustin) and splits. Now while Trixter business was enough for an episode, it was really the 2 side things that floored us. One – the appearance of Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) at the door. Two – Harry (Tom Cavanagh) finally (albeit reluctantly) throwing in with Zoom (Tony Todd) for the sake and safety of his daughter.

Spoilers below.

SDCC 2015: ‘The Flash’ Sizzle Reel, New Characters!
  |  @   |  

DC’s television invasion was in full effect last year with three of TV’s best being FOX’s Gotham and CW’s Arrow and The Flash. The best (in my humble opinion) was The Flash, which continually blended humor, drama, and comic action seamlessly and gave constant “Holy Sh*t” moments. If you aren’t an avid Flash watcher (and you should binge it immediately if you aren’t), then beware of spoilers. The twisting web of lies and deceit spun by friend/foe Harrison Wells (Tom Cavanagh), the entire alternate timeline created by Barry (Grant Gustin) which included the death of Cisco (Carlos Valdes), the crossovers with Arrow (Stephen Amell) and of course Eddie’s (Rick Cosnett) fateful decision in the finale. Thanks to San Diego Comic-Con we now know some details about the upcoming Season 2.

Watch the sizzle reel below.

TV Review: The Messengers 1.3 “Path To Paradise”
  |  @   |  

The Messengers
Season 1 Episode 3: “Path To Paradise”
Directed by Cherie Nowlan
Written by Eoghan O’Donnell, Matt Pitts, Oanh Ly
Starring Shantel VanSanten, Sofia Black-D’Elia, Joel Courtney, JD Pardo, Jon Fletcher, Diogo Morgado, Anna Diop
The CW
Air Date: Friday, May 1st, 2015, 9:00pm

Last week’s The Messengers found the group converging at a bar with a really cool and appropriate name – The Last Supper, seemingly by coincidence. Which is crazy because when they all previously found out about their group and mission in the hospital chapel, Rose (Anna Diop) reveals all, and they all leave roadrunner dust in their wake. Raul (JD Pardo) saves Erin (Sofia Black-D’Elia) from the cops. Remember – her abusive ex is a cop, who will use his influence to hurt her and take back their child. They do not get to the one-armed vet in Joshua’s (Jon Fletcher) vision in time. How will that affect the mission?

This may be cheesy, but I do like the wings in the mirror effect.

TV Review: The Messengers 1.2 “Strange Magic”

The Messengers
Season 1 Episode 2: “Strange Magic”
Directed by Duane Clark
Written by Eoghan O’Donnell, Trey Callaway
Starring Shantel VanSanten, Sofia Black-D’Elia, Joel Courtney, JD Pardo, Jon Fletcher, Diogo Morgado, Anna Diop
The CW
Air Date: Friday, April 24th, 2015, 9:00pm

The Messengers “awakened” last week, and this pilot about angels who have to save mankind from the impending apocalypse started pretty intriguing – emphasis on pretty. Before the review of this week’s episode, let’s give a little pilot recap.

A meteor-like something crashes into Earth and the shockwave kills five people, who then come back to life with angel wings you can only see in a mirror. Peter (Joel Courtney), comes back and stands up to his bully, not realizing his new strength and kills him. Erin (Sofia Black-D’Elia), heals her daughter’s wounds, then steals her out of the hospital, away from her violent father. Vera (Shantel VanSanten) meets the devil (Diogo Morgado), who promises to bring her to her stolen son if she does a favor for him. Raul (JD Pardo) carjacks Erin, but her daughter is soft on him. And Joshua (Jon Fletcher), goes from being a run-of-the-mill televangelist, to one who knows the hellfire and damnation truth. Oh, and gross to his dad getting Joshua’s wife pregnant.

It’s time to try a new show! The Messengers premiered Friday night on The CW. It’s got 3 pros and 1 con as far as I can see.

Pro – It’s on The CW, a network that hones supernatural dramas, with lots of action and emotion.
Pro – Pretty actors/actresses with familiar but not too familiar faces.
Pro – It’s about angels who have to stop the coming Apocalypse. Hello? I have to try it.

Con – Airs Friday nights, a slow tv night. Hell, it’s a slow night for us too.
