7.5/10 83% The Flash: Season 2 - Legends of Today (TV Episode) It's not a huge issue, but it does make the Flash entry feel half-baked. There was enough action to keep things moving, but not enough otherwise for the hour to stand alone.‐ Paste Magazine

7.5/10 100% The Flash: Season 2 - Gorilla Warfare (TV Episode) Despite difficult circumstances that come with bringing a far-fetched character to life, the show not only forewent caution and embraced its comic book roots, but did so in compelling fashion.‐ Paste Magazine

9.5/10 100% The Flash: Season 2 - The Darkness and the Light (TV Episode) The Darkness and the Light is The Flash at the peak of its powers, delivering an episode that moved with purpose, has an interesting villain and contained healthy doses of both drama and comedy.‐ Paste Magazine

8/10 100% The Flash: Season 2 - Flash of Two Worlds (TV Episode) Pure comic book nerd candy. It was an hour that returned the show back to having fun, while jumping us headlong into the concept of parallel universes.‐ Paste Magazine

7/10 89% The Flash: Season 2 - The Man Who Saved Central City (TV Episode) The show went incredibly dark for the season opener, which could have worked, but it felt like an energy suck for The Flash to begin its sophomore effort with such a morose hour.‐ Paste Magazine

100% The Flash: Season 1 - Fast Enough (TV Episode) At the end, after an hour full of pain and heartache... the show, as it did in week one, left us with one sense more than any other: wonder.‐ Paste Magazine

86% The Flash: Season 1 - Rogue Air (TV Episode) Not only maneuvered all the necessary pieces for the finale, but many for the future as well. In all, "Rogue Air" continued the show's recent success...‐ Paste Magazine

100% The Flash: Season 1 - Grodd Lives (TV Episode) The lack of connection was certainly a detriment to the flow of the show coming off last week's Harrison-centric hour, but those failings were easily covered thanks to the sheer exhilaration of finally seeing Grodd for more than a scene. ‐ Paste Magazine

100% The Flash: Season 1 - The Trap (TV Episode) In "The Trap," we finally get a glimpse at the cards the writers have been tightly clutching to their chest for 19 episodes, and the early returns are outstanding.‐ Paste Magazine

80% The Flash: Season 1 - Who Is Harrison Wells? (TV Episode) The Flash returned to form last night with its 19th hour of the season... Though my impatience grows each week resolution is delayed, last night's story stymied my frustration far better than "All Star Team Up" for one simple reason: interest.‐ Paste Magazine

77% The Flash: Season 1 - All Star Team Up (TV Episode) The biggest issue with "All Star Team Up" was the lack of an interesting main story. The Flash has done a commendable job of creating inviting single episode stories throughout the year, but this hour would not rank among its finest. ‐ Paste Magazine

95% The Flash: Season 1 - Tricksters (TV Episode) "Tricksters" featured a cliche-laden main story that, despite some stellar performances, felt too broad and largely out of place compared to much of The Flash's first season.‐ Paste Magazine

85% The Flash: Season 1 - Rogue Time (TV Episode) This was an important episode for The Flash, and one that delivered strongly. It gave a solid hour of television with a well-paced main plot, that also was able to push forward major storylines.‐ Paste Magazine

90% The Flash: Season 1 - Out of Time (TV Episode) Recaptured much of its early season magic, and boosted my hopes for the final stretch. If the writers can deliver whole episodes as exciting as the last half of "Out of Time," we'll all need the whole summer to simply catch our breath.‐ Paste Magazine

90% The Flash: Season 1 - Fallout (TV Episode) An episode filled with numerous scenes of testing, and lots and lots of explaining. The Flash is, mostly, able to get away with this without boring the audience because the exposition is truthfully rather interesting. ‐ Paste Magazine

78% The Flash: Season 1 - The Nuclear Man (TV Episode) Overall, the hour was fast-paced and entertaining, pushing numerous storylines forward, while also supplying some genuine excitement.‐ Paste Magazine

80% The Flash: Season 1 - Crazy For You (TV Episode) A goofy hour, one that had broad strokes of comedy and a less than impactful main story... "Crazy for You" ultimately felt disjointed and lacking in any sort of definitive structure. ‐ Paste Magazine

83% The Flash: Season 1 - The Sound and the Fury (TV Episode) A well-paced hour of television with more than a few surprises... What it lacked in heart-racing action, though, "The Sound and the Fury" made up for with clever schemes from Rathaway and equally clever solutions thought up by Harrison and Co.‐ Paste Magazine

100% The Flash: Season 1 - Revenge of the Rogues (TV Episode) Coming off a subpar episode in the fall finale, the show wasted little time getting back in the groove, serving up another tight and entertaining hour.‐ Paste Magazine

84% The Flash: Season 1 - The Man in the Yellow Suit (TV Episode) The problem with "The Man in the Yellow Suit" wasn't so much writing, acting or lack of interesting ideas, but that there was simply too much of everything.‐ Paste Magazine

100% The Flash: Season 1 - Flash vs. Arrow (TV Episode) "Flash vs. Arrow" was everything a fan could have wanted from a crossover event. The Flash side of the two-parter was tight, well-paced, superbly written and, most importantly, fun. ‐ Paste Magazine

90% The Flash: Season 1 - Power Outage (TV Episode) "Power Outage" kept the bones of the format but shaped them in a way that presented the viewers something new.‐ Paste Magazine

75% The Flash: Season 1 - The Flash Is Born (TV Episode) A solid (if not impeccable) hour that contained both an interesting main story, and moved several other plot points forward. ‐ Paste Magazine

90% The Flash: Season 1 - Plastique (TV Episode) The Flash is already bursting with confidence, and it has so many bright moments that those few duds are relatively harmless.‐ Paste Magazine

6.5/10 67% Gotham: Season 1 - Welcome Back, Jim Gordon (TV Episode) I'm at a loss, really. My brain can't comprehend why Gotham fails to draw any sort of excitement out of me the way The Flash might... I don't really have an answer. The show just bores me.‐ Paste Magazine

7/10 68% Gotham: Season 1 - What the Little Bird Told Him (TV Episode) What we get instead are stories that are fairly well conceived and delivered, but lack any distinctive flavor. The toast isn't burnt, or limp, you just forgot to make sure you had any jam in the fridge.‐ Paste Magazine

7.5/10 44% Gotham: Season 1 - Rogues' Gallery (TV Episode) The flaws, stiff acting, subpar writing, overabundance of characters, remain... but "Rogue's Gallery" proved that, when Gotham focuses and simplifies its narrative, it is wholly entertaining, and one of the better ways to spend your Monday night.‐ Paste Magazine

7/10 73% Gotham: Season 1 - Lovecraft (TV Episode) Despite lacking the big shock, the episode was one of Gotham's stronger efforts, providing another tightly controlled story, which is how this show thrives. ‐ Paste Magazine

8.5/10 54% Gotham: Season 1 - Harvey Dent (TV Episode) It presented a smart, tight story that was connected to the larger narrative, as opposed to the fractured episodes we've seen often in the first nine weeks. On top of that, it found a way to build its characters without detracting from its main plot.‐ Paste Magazine

6/10 68% Gotham: Season 1 - The Mask (TV Episode) So much of what has troubled Gotham reared its head in "The Mask." A bland main story overrun by a mass of subplots was the main culprit here, flanked by subpar writing and phoned-in acting. ‐ Paste Magazine

8/10 88% Gotham: Season 1 - Penguin's Umbrella (TV Episode) What made "Penguin's Umbrella" a successful episode, first and foremost, was focus. There was a dedication to a singular storyline in this hour, which has only been shown in spurts the previous six.‐ Paste Magazine

8/10 69% Gotham: Season 1 - Spirit of the Goat (TV Episode) Each week, the writing and acting improved, but the stories remained flat. Episode six, "Spirit of the Goat" begins to swing that trend in the right direction. Kind of.‐ Paste Magazine

7/10 62% Gotham: Season 1 - Viper (TV Episode) The downfall of Gotham has primarily been congestion... But in the fifth episode, those distractions were kept in check, though not without problems.‐ Paste Magazine

7/10 75% Gotham: Season 1 - Arkham (TV Episode) The closest the show has come to being truly captivating, and for the first half-hour, I was enthralled.‐ Paste Magazine

5/10 60% Gotham: Season 1 - The Balloonman (TV Episode) Nearly everything in "The Balloonman" felt off, with the biggest issue being the script, which, from plot scheme to dialogue, was poorly written. ‐ Paste Magazine

6.5/10 72% Gotham: Season 1 - Selina Kyle (TV Episode) Now that we're here, it's time for Gotham to slow down, tighten, and focus. This week was hampered due to the myriad of side-plots at work. ‐ Paste Magazine

79% Gotham: Season 1 - Pilot (TV Episode) It was a solid - if at times bumbling and awkward - start for the show.‐ Paste Magazine

8/10 71% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Worse Than a Crime (TV Episode) [Galavan's] importance to the narrative has held the year back, but last night's "Worse Than a Crime," the midseason finale, distanced the season from Galavan, and repurposed the character in a curious way for potential use in the future.‐ Paste Magazine

7.5/10 80% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: The Son of Gotham (TV Episode) It was a fine hour for a comic book drama. It was well-paced, decently written with drama and comedy and had the best action Gotham has ever put on screen. ‐ Paste Magazine

7.5/10 63% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Tonight's the Night (TV Episode) Despite the episode's cowardice in putting a lame horse to rest, "Tonight's the Night" is one of the Gotham's best efforts, of either season.‐ Paste Magazine

7/10 63% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Mommy's Little Monster (TV Episode) The second half rolls in, and "My Little Monster" turns into the closest thing Gotham has ever had to an action-packed thrill ride.‐ Paste Magazine

7/10 78% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: By Fire (TV Episode) If the underground lab means a sudden influx of supervillains for the "Rise of the Villains" season that finds itself oddly lacking in bad folk, color me intrigued. ‐ Paste Magazine

7/10 59% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Scarification (TV Episode) Luckily, Gotham did not allow its misstep {last week] to turn into a full-on slide, picking itself up quickly with a far more competent and interesting hour of television with last night's "Scarification" (though the name is supremely stupid). ‐ Paste Magazine

6/10 61% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Strike Force (TV Episode) It's difficult to watch actors with real talent be done little favor by poor dialogue. Few characters appear natural on Gotham week-to-week, and last night no one did. Everything in the episode felt false, rather than characters existing in their world.‐ Paste Magazine

8/10 72% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: The Last Laugh (TV Episode) The commitment to serialization is paying off serious benefits and the writers look as though they have a bravery they sorely lacked last year. ‐ Paste Magazine

7.5/10 82% Gotham: Season 2 - Rise of the Villains: Damned If You Do... (TV Episode) While it's not anywhere near perfect yet, Gotham took an important step last night. The show proved that it's serious about serialization, taking its time to set up storylines rather than trying to cram one start-to-finish in an hour.‐ Paste Magazine

9.5/10 97% You're the Worst: Season 2 (TV, 2015) Season Two is supposed to be dark and wicked, which has me frightened for everyone involved, especially Edgar, but when the writing is as superb as it was in the season premiere, all you can do is hang on and enjoy the ride. ‐ Paste Magazine
