"Monster" may be light on action, but Tom Cavanagh provides a refreshing comedic punch.

Critic Reviews for Monster

I can't deny that Cavanagh's turn as H.R. provided most of tonight's best moments.

I would totally be fine with the show killing off Julian or transferring him to some other city.

Felt very much like Season 1.

The Julian-Barry stuff was a highlight of the episode and I hope the show continues building this dynamic.

I like this. I like this as much as I like the idea that Gladiator is called Sweaty Men on Earth-19, and as much as I like Iris on the ground during a monster attack, trying to help in a very practical way.

The Flash went from luke warm shower last week to a straight up tundra ice bath episode this week.

This week's Flash didn't offer much in terms of action, spectacle or a compelling villain. But it did deliver plenty of great character interaction.

The plot works rather well, giving Caitlin some interesting motivation for what could grow into a something of a villainous turn.

As long as Cavanagh is there, the show is better. No matter who he's playing.

The new Harry, or "H.R." for short, is Tom Cavanagh's fourth iteration of the character... and he's a ridiculous joy.

With a timely reprieve from multiple speedsters and Dr. Alchemy scheming, Monster was a refreshingly simple episode of The Flash.
