Critic reviews for The Man in the Yellow Suit
"The Man in the Yellow Suit" was an enjoyable way to cap off Barry Allen's first year on the job. It introduced a compelling new villain into the mix, while dredging up far more questions than answers.
This was remarkable stuff. They didn't take the easy way out and try and deliver an hour of spectacle. They gave us just enough info to keep us nervous until the show returns...
I'm happy to say that it paid off in quite a few ways. Not only did viewers get a(n arguably) definitive answer to the identity of The Man in the Yellow Suit, but we got to see quite a bit more of another fiery superheroic meta-human.
"The Man in the Yellow Suit" is a thrilling, emotional hour of television, one that forwarded the plot in profound and startling ways. No one can accuse The Flash of standing still.
There were multiple scenes in which you couldn't have been faulted for at least shedding a tear. However, "The Man in the Yellow Suit" was also missing The Flash's sense of fun - which is okay.
