Critic reviews for Flashpoint

Some of the funniest, most fire, grade A, rib shattering new personality intro scenes that The Flash has ever come up with.

At the end of the day, this show's appeal isn't about the spectacle... it's about following Barry Allen's emotional journey through all its ups and downs.

It's possible all this time-traveling and rewriting of history is beginning to wear thin, and even the writers can no longer keep it all straight.

The chemistry of the cast is excellent. And to its credit, the premiere toys with some interesting ideas.

The best part about Caitlin's appearance was the joke about whether she was kidnapped or not.
