Critic Reviews for Into the Void

I don't know about you guys, but I really enjoyed the season 6 premiere.

It also finds time for a charming standalone story that's more satisfying than the table-setting the rest of the episode is forced to do.

Into the Void was a pretty effective way to start the sixth season and build the hype train for Crisis on Infinite Earths.

The sixth season premiere of The Flash paves the way for this season's Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover while key players grieve losses from last season.

'Into The Void' was a welcome change-of-pace for the show as it took a moment to focus on its characters ahead of the story, while also successfully reintroducing the Crisis as a major threat.

WOW! What a start to season 6. So much happened and we have so much to look forward too.

New showrunner Eric Wallace refocuses the show to center its characters and the season six premiere is all the better for it.

What follows is one of the best action sequences in the show's history, as - perfectly timed to "Flash's Theme."

Oct 9, 2019 | Full Review…

After two rough seasons in a row, it's unrealistic to expect The Flash to completely and fundamentally change in the course of a single premiere episode. Even so, "Into the Void" serves as a promising start to Season 6.

Welcome back to Central City! Season 6 kicks off with everything you get in The Flash package: action, drama and a whole lot of science!

This episode took us through the motions and should be renamed heart to heart... This episode brought the best mix of what makes The Flash great, and it's only going to get better.

Oct 9, 2019 | Rating: 4.6/5 | Full Review…

There's still room for improvement and the show would undoubtedly benefit from changing things up a little but The Flash is as fun as ever and seemingly back on the right track as the hero races into his sixth year on the air.
