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…

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.

Oct 8, 2015 | Rating: 8/10 | 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 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…

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.

Jun 19, 2018 | 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.

Audience Reviews for The Flash: Season 2

  • Sep 06, 2019
    I miss those seasons, one, two, and even three. S2 of Flash sure is amazing and fun unlike the new seasons, four and five, that get worse and worse. If I have to rank all the seasons it would be like that: 5.s4 4.s5 3.s3 2.s2 1.s1
  • Aug 28, 2019
    In the first season a speedster tells flash not to save his mom which i like, second season throw that all out the window.
  • Aug 21, 2019
    The second season took everything from the first season and upped it!
  • Aug 14, 2019
    Not as good as season 1 but still awesome
  • Jul 31, 2019
    This season starts of great, but I thought it drags on for too long. Mild Spoiler: Zoom is presented as unbeatable, but yet he slowly becomes easier to beat. I didn't like that.
  • Jul 20, 2019
    this season is really good it has an amazing Villain Zoom and I love time travel and multiverse movies and TV shows this is pretty good the only thing I hate is that Wally is a complete douchebag and this Harrison Wells is a complete douchebag the only bad part is the character actually need to stop being whiners and actually start acting like an actual adult and actually stop being a big baby
  • Jul 20, 2019
    The best season for me is that it starts the entire universe of the arrow it brings the matter of parallel universes is very important
  • Jul 15, 2019
    The second season of "The Flash" proves the show has much more than a season under its belt. Thanks to the continued love from each of the cast, and welcomed new comers Keyian Lionsdale and Teddy Sears. The Zoom story arch is fantastic and with the introduction of the fan favorite multiverse, allowing for greater adventures down the road. This season balances all of the fun, drama, fan service, and character moments all wrapped up in an unexpected ending that will leave you breathless.
  • Jul 11, 2019
    an extremely sad season a great cast and a darker setting
  • Jun 29, 2019
    Where the first season was good the second season is amazing! Taking on a darker tone and with higher steaks than season one, season two of The Flash surpasses its predecessor with flying colors. Once again the villain is the best part about the season, Zoom is truly evil and is a villain that is quite terrifying.
