The Flash Season 3 Episode 17 – “Duet” Review

Arrow Season 5 Episode 17 – “Kapiushon” Review
Arrow manages to continue their recent form in a flashback heavy episode. The second half of Season 5 of Arrow has shifted into a very dark and heavy centric-theme exploring the motivations and histories of the characters. Kapiushon manages to tackle the largest motive for Oliver’s lust to kill, albeit he has not been on any killing sprees as of late. An exploration of Oliver’s excruciating journey as he transforms himself into what... Read more
Marvel’s Iron Fist: Season One Review
Netflix and Marvel introduce us to Danny Rand aka Iron Fist, the final Defender ahead of the team-up series later this year.

The Flash Season 3 Episode 17 – “Duet” Review
It may seem a rather odd choice for The Flash to switch from its recent rather emotional and darker tone in the ongoing story of the struggle against Savitar to a rather bubbly and whimsical episode, but that’s just what happened and, while tonally it did feel a tad strange to switch from one extreme to the next, the very thought of Grant Gustin and Melissa Benoist, among others, channeling their musical backgrounds would feel oh so right.
