With disorienting body swaps, confusingly altered realities, and an awesome Superman-Supergirl team-up, there is a lot to love in this joy-filled Arrowverse crossover episode of The Flash.
From the obvious humor of the body swap, to all of the Easter eggs and callbacks that the writers threw in, there was so much to love about this episode.
They have a lot of fun playing with Barry and Oliver's body-swap, and some of the jokes are laugh out loud funny.
Any crossover featuring the excellent Tyler Hoechlin as Superman is a big step up though.
For The Flash, the presence of Jessica Parker Kennedy's Nora West-Allen has given the show a major shot in the arm following its mixed bag of a fourth season.
To use each other's powers and skills to the fullest, they need to understand what makes the other tick - which means Ollie needs to smile more, and Barry needs to drop his voice to a menacing growl. Did I mention how much I enjoyed this episode?!
The Annual Crossover kicked offs with an interesting concept and a decent execution. The "Elseworlds" Concept is used loosely...but opens up the opportunity for some Wacky and Crazy fun.
It had a nice fun-comedic tone and it had an inner lying darkness that'll be developed on as we head towards Gotham.
It's a concept pulled wonderfully from the comic canon, and it's just as wild, ambitious and wonderfully fun as anything you'd find on the page.
We knew switching identities would be a challenge for Barry and Oliver. They are so opposite. So it will be enjoyable to watch Oliver lighten up. But seeing Barry's dark side...I know I'm not going to like that.
When an actor loves what they're doing, that excitement flies off the screen. I haven't seen excitement like this for quite some time.
It's not often that the broody vigilante gets to lighten up, so seeing Oliver adjust to his strange new surroundings and speedy powers is a comedic treat.
These crossover events have become a highlight of my year, and "Elseworlds Part 1" is a perfect representation as to why.
