Critic reviews for Running to Stand Still

A Flash adventure that brings new meaning to the phrase "dashing through the snow."

The return of Mark Hamill's Trickster alone was a welcome holiday treat, but seeing him paired up with Weather Wizard was even better.

August 3, 2018 | Rating: 8.3/10 | Full Review…

Not only did the show fritter away the backstory of one of its newest characters, but it actually added another member to a cast already groaning under the weight of too many parallel plotlines.

If you didn't think Zoom was diabolical before, this episode allows him to dangle Harry's daughter in front of his eyes before snatching her away again, forcing Harry's hand.

Nothing says Christmas like a couple of murderous Rogues out to get you and family secrets that can potentially tear you apart.

One thing is for certain: Fans of Iris West this week got perhaps the biggest gift of all, as after instances of a scene here and there not making it to broadcast, Miss West was well accounted for.
