Critic Reviews for The Flash: Season 2

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (5)

The Flash's second season begins, as Buffy's always would, by having its heroes pick up the pieces, and it does so nicely.

It's also reasonably smart without being show-offy. Tuesday's launch, meanwhile, is a nice reminder that nothing -- at least that good stuff -- has changed.

For a comic book fan, it feels as if they're making this series just for me.

... the beating heart of the growing DCU on the CW.

Season two may be a step down from what had been a brilliant debut, but when it comes right to it, it still manages to deliver where it counts.

September 7, 2016 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It's a lot to get through, and some of it works better than others.

This is a show that continues to evolve. It has gone a very long way from the first season and we continue to see these characters go into some different corners and some different parts of themselves that we will hopefully see some more of in the future. Once again, we have The Flash going up against another speedster, but this time it's someone who is bigger and badder than Reverse-Flash. He is up against Zoom from the altenate dimension: Earth-2. They manage to get pull the season together beautifully and we get another season filled with compelling villains and great twists. The performances was great once again and Tom Cavanagh is really one of the best actors on television right now. Teddy Sears also gives a great performance as Zoom and he can be really scared at times and that is because of the combination of Sears movements in the suit and the awesome, yet incredibly horrifying voice of Tony Todd. I didn't like Keiynan Lonsdale's performance. He really just seemed dead at some points and would act like he didn't really give a damn. Also, some of the villains are really horribly written and I couldn't wait for them to die. After one hell of a great season, I can't wait for season three.

Exciting and action-packed, the second season of The Flash explores the DC Multiverse. This season Barry Allen and his team discover a series of spatial fractures that lead to another Earth which is home to a super-villain speedster named Zoom who seeks to invade and steal Allen's speed force. Additionally, there are subplots with Joe learning that he has a son that he never knew about, Caitlin falling in love with Jay Garrick form the other Earth, and Cisco exploring his hidden powers. The writers do some interesting things with the alternative Earth, including having characters meeting there doppelgangers, impersonating one another, and teaming up. Also, Tony Todd joins the recurring cast as the voice of Zoom, and does an excellence job at bringing a sense of menace and danger to the character. Yet the season does have some problems with convoluted storytelling, and it falling into a few of the more common tropes of alternative universes. Still, on the whole Season 2 of The Flash is entertaining and expands the series.
