The opinions I share are my own.

THE MOVIE — 4.0/5

Season Synopsis: No matter how fast he is, Barry Allen (GRANT GUSTIN), aka The Flash, can’t outrun his fate. Or can he? With an impending Crisis threatening Central City, Barry and his wife, Iris West-Allen (CANDACE PATTON), cope with the heartbreaking loss of their speedster daughter, Nora, while Barry attempts to prepare Team Flash for a future without him. As Barry navigates the devastating Crisis, Killer Frost (DANIELLE PANABAKER), Cisco Ramon (CARLOS VALDES), Ralph Dibny (HARTLEY SAWYER), Nash Wells (TOM CAVANAGH), Joe West (JESSE L. MARTIN) and Joe’s girlfriend, Cecile Horton (DANIELLE NICOLET), struggle to protect their city and The Flash’s legacy. Will they save their world from a cosmic disaster of infinite proportions?

Quick Hit Review: I’ve had plenty of qualms with the DC CW shows and the lower quality in storytelling or writing, none more so than the latter seasons of the now defunct Arrow series, while Supergirl has been on a downward spiral and Batwoman not having the best launch, especially with star Ruby Rose unexpectedly leaving the role. In any case, the one show I have generally enjoyed is The Flash, although the ensemble has grown over its six seasons, including additional metahumans, the show still heavily relies on its star.

Grant Gustin, much like Christopher Reeve’s Superman or Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, really fills the role of Barry Allen so well, and with genuine innocence and charisma that carries the series even when the stories from episode to episode may not be the strongest. Candice Patton as Iris West, shares some wonderful chemistry with Gustin, she is part of the heart of the show. Also enjoyed this season expanding the dynamic between Danielle Panabaker’s dual personalities of Caitlin Snow and Killer Frost, the latter getting a bit more to do.

The Flash still has some defiancies with some of the stories, heck the very first episode has Team Flash attempts to stop a growing black hole, created from inside the mind of a young scientist and social media personality (the character would become part of the team and was a nice addition), though we do get some nice scenes with Barry and Iris dealing with the loss of their daughter. And it wouldn’t be a season without having a Grodd episode thrown in there, not the best one but was a fun change-up I suppose.



This 5-disc set is housed in a HD keep case and, like previous seasons, side-slides into a glossy slip cover. Included inside is the fifth disc containing the five “Crisis on Infinite Earths” cross-over episodes. In addition, there is a redemption code for the Digital HD copy.

Deleted Scenes — ‘Dead Man Running’, ‘There Will Be Blood’, ‘Kiss Kiss Breach Breach’, ‘The Last Temptation of Barry Allen, Pt. 1’, ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths: Hour 3’, ‘Marathon’, ‘Love is a Battlefield’, ‘Grodd Friended Me’, ‘So Long and Goodnight’ and ‘Success is Assured’

‘Kiss Kiss Breach Breach Noir’ is an exclusive film noir experience and includes an optional Audio Commentary with Showrunner/Executive Producer Eric Wallace.

VIDEO – 4.5/5

Warner Bros. releases The Flash onto Blu-ray shown in its originally televised 1.78 widescreen aspect ratio and a 1080p high-definition transfer. The picture for the most part looks quite good, detail is relatively sharp particularly on the close-up shots and colors are pretty vibrant, with something like the Flash’s red suit popping off the screen and a good array of other colors, while skin tones have a natural appearance.

AUDIO – 4.0/5

The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track isn’t anything amazing but effective with good dialogue levels throughout and offers some nice depth especially on display during the numerous action sequences where even the LFE channel kicks in to add an extra boost which isn’t always the case with TV seasons on Blu-ray.


OVERALL – 3.75/5

The Flash: The Complete Sixth Season is still the best of the CW DC shows thanks in large part to the performance by Grant Gustin and a nice ensemble cast, especially Candice Patton and Tom Cavanagh, and some decent storylines, most notably for the “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover which leans heavily on the Flash.
