Critic Reviews for The Flash Season 2

All Critics (24) | 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.

Oct 7, 2015 | Full Review…

Not every story the show tells needs to be life-lessonish, and The Flash can veer cornball and simplistic sometimes. Still, I love the right stuff that The Flash represents. He's a blazing streak of Tomorrowland in a gloomy, doomy, fury road culture.

Oct 7, 2015 | Rating: B | Full Review…

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

Oct 8, 2015 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

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.

Top Critic

The Flash's sophomore season followed in the footsteps of a highly regarded freshman season, and despite some flaws, it carried on the mantle quite well.

Mar 7, 2019 | Full Review…

I believe The Flash season 2 is building a framework to keep from completely baffling its viewers later; they've started by re-establishing the foundation, the very basics of the show.

Jul 17, 2018 | Full Review…

Season 2 of The Flash continues to be a mix of good intentions and significant missteps.

Aug 4, 2019 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

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

Oct 6, 2016 | Full Review…

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.

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

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

Oct 7, 2015 | Full Review…

The show keeps its streak of strong episodes alive despite a few hitches in the road.

Oct 7, 2015 | Full Review…

There's much more to consider going into Season 3 than "The Race of His Life" necessarily wrought during the hour itself, but the overall construction felt admirably solid.

Audience Reviews for The Flash: Season 2

  • 2d ago
    Not as good as the first. There are still many easter eggs and clever nods to the DC comic books and the acting and special effects are still very good and it's still an enjoyable watch but overall it's only average with some questionable characters. While I did like Zoom as the villain new charactes Jay and Wally aren't such nice additions. The Flash's second season is only average with too little Captain Cold to compensate.

    Better than the first and a actual scary villain
  • Dec 18, 2019
    The Flash season 2 is not as good as the first season but still keeps the mood and Zoom is awesome!!!
  • Nov 15, 2019
    Did a pretty good job at keeping it near the same level as the first Season. Not as good, but still done well. Kept me watching all the way through.
  • Oct 27, 2019
    Although not as good as the first season of The Flash, it is still very interesting and really fun. The multiverse was done very well and so was ZOOM!
  • Oct 22, 2019
    Fun, exciting and full of fabulous action scenes, The Flash's second season achieves the feat of being even better than the previous season because of its even better done direction, creative script, neat visual effects, plot full of twists and characters even more charismatic and magnificently interpreted by Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Keiynan Lonsdale, Tom Cavanagh and Jesse L. Martin

    Had a lot of hate for this season. Loved the first season, but this one spent a lot of time undoing all their good work. Zoom was a good villain until he took of his mask and became a lot weaker and slower for no reason. They set up rules of time travel in the first season and then trash them in this season. A lot of terribly dull episodes with only a few gems to help it on it's way. The finale was strong, but ended with a really stupid writing decision. A lot of the characters were required to act out of character or just plain dumb to drive the plot forwards this season. Hopefully things improve next season.
  • Oct 15, 2019
    Same plot, but still good
  • Oct 12, 2019
    Very fun season! Much better than the first one. It has a great villain but I wished he would have showed up more time on screen.
  • Oct 08, 2019
    The rivalry with The Flash and Zoom was amazing. I love the finale, what a payoff.
