The Flash, Season 1, Episode 5, “Plastique”
Directed by Dermott Downs
Airs Tuesdays at 8pm Et on the CW
Hot damn! I normally like to write about the events in the episode in the order they happened, but we have got to talk about that ending! Gorilla Grodd is coming! He was teased in the pilot, but in a brief flashback we saw that the gorilla (who is seemingly just a poor lab ape at that point) was at the center of the rift between Wells and General Eiling. Wells telling the sad primate that he has “a very different future planned” is an enticing tease for the most out-there concept of the show yet.
Now on to the meat of “Plastique”, which starts with a supposed bomb going off in Central City and the sudden intrusion of the army, led by Eiling (Highlander »

Boardwalk Empire, Ep. 5.08: “Eldorado” leaves only the dust and ash of regret
That it seemed obvious for the series’ finale to send Nucky out was a bit of a given, considering the telegraphed nature of the flashback conceit which had been building for the entirety of this season. There were glimpses of hope, and chances for atonement but the clock had already run out by the time Nucky took his final stroll down the boardwalk…. click here to read the article.
‘Neverending Nightmares’ is truly neverending
Based on designer Matt Gilgenbach’s battle with obsessive-compulsive disorder and depression, Neverending Nightmares is a psychological horror game that amplifies feelings of unease through repetition in a minimalist setting. Personally, this was the most difficult game for me to finish because of the content. There were several moments when I just had to stop and seriously question whether or not I could feasibly finish the game. »

This week's episode of The Flash (titled "Going Rogue") was arguably the best yet, with special effects and action sequences as good as any comic book movie. The series is doing an excellent job of fleshing out the supporting cast, and while the villains so far have all been pretty great, they all pale in comparison to Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold as he really stole the show on Tuesday. If you haven't watched the episode yet, do so immediately, but here we have the awesome final scene from the latest instalment of The CW series. If you read The Flash comic books, you'll know that "Mick" is in fact Mick Rory, the villain better known as Heat Wave! We've seen set photos of him and Captain Cold taking on The Flash in episode 9, but this is a very cool moment as we see the start of the team we »
In last night’s episode of The Flash, titled “Going Rogue,” we finally get to see one of the “big bads” of the Flash mythos — Captain Cold (a.k.a. Leonard Snart), played very well by Wentworth Miller. Miller displayed the cool-under-pressure sinisterness of Captain Cold that fans of the villain’s appearance in comics and in animated versions should appreciate. The episode title is also likely a sly reference to The Rogues, a group of villains in the comics headed by Captain Cold who regularly tried to stop The Flash. The end of this episode also saw Captain Cold trying to recruit … Continue reading →

Wentworth Miller made his debut as Captain Cold in The Flash last night, and the reviews from fans and critics alike have been overwhelmingly positive. In a recent interview with IGN, the actor revealed that he wasn't familiar with the character when The CW first offered him the role, and while he did do some research, Miller didn't want to be beholden to the comics. "When I was cast, I went online and googled a few images and some of them I responded to and some of them I did not and I thought, “Let me take my cue from what the writers have planned." Because I got the sense early on that there was a willingness to respect what’s come before but also an interest in reinventing and giving things a fresh spin. So I thought let me take the character from the pages of the script specifically, »
With the introduction of Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) this week, it finally feels like the show is about to start, as if our other “villains of the week” was still just a precursor to showing what the show was going to be. All the character traits he’s known for and everything you need to know about him you get in the frame of this show; he’s smart, calculating, lives by a code and is merciless when after what he wants. The dialogue is delivered in a slow monotone inflection and begs of respect. It’s finally a villain we can sink our teeth into, so it was no surprise he did not get locked up in Wells’ super-prison.
There was also a nice twist to the Cold story; his weapon came from Star Labs, even made by Barry’s ping-pong partner, »

The Flash welcomes a pal from Arrow in this week's episode. Here's Caroline's review of Going Rogue...
This review contains spoilers.
1.4 Going Rogue
When Barry Allen was first introduced on Arrow and it was revealed the character would be spun-off into his own series, one of the first questions on everyone’s lips was whether Felicity would be crossing over from time to time. Maybe it shouldn’t have been, but such is the popularity of that character. This episode, Going Rogue, was the moment in which that wish came to fruition, a full three hours into the new series.
It was a good episode to get still-unconverted Arrow fans on board for The Flash, and it was also a nice, tidy way for the writers to wrap up the unfinished Barry/Felicity relationship. Above everything, though, it was just so darn nice having her there, and she fit into »
One of the most anticipated episodes of CW’s The Flash has been the arrival of Prison Break’s Wentworth Miller as Leonard Snart a.k.a. Captain Cold, one of the most popular Rogues in the comic books. I have been a huge fan of Miller ever since his portrayal of Michael Scofield that wasn’t just one of the most brilliant written characters on Prison Break, but on television period, so it was splendid news when they announced that he had been cast as Captain Cold. His arrival to the show lived up to my expectations and then some as his interpretation of Snart was flawless. His screentime was perfect, it wasn’t too long or too short and every scene he had progressed the story forward. We get some backstory on him, including a mention of a certain sister that could be a future Rogue on the »
The Flash, Season 1, Episode 4, “Going Rogue”
Directed by Glen Winter
Airs Wednesday at 8pm Et on The CW
Taking into account a DVR playback The Flash series pilot has risen to 6.8 million viewers and counting since it first premiered. That’s The CW’s most-watched telecast in the network’s history. If you count all platforms, the tally rises to 13 million viewers. If anything, “Going Rogue” will only help boost these numbers. With a script that never forgets its heroes’ humanity, and an episode that features two superpowered set pieces, “Going Rogue” lives up to its hype — and raises the bar for the DC canon. Not only does this episode introduce Wentworth Miller but the special guest star turned in a great performance as one of the Flash’s best-known enemies, the famous Captain Cold. And if that isn’t enough to tune in, »
A review of tonight's "The Flash" coming up just as soon as I'm overdressed for trivia night... "Going Rogue" did certain things spectacularly well — and, no, I am not just talking about Felicity's dress — and frustrated at others, particularly in the way it clung to the formula of the Berlanti super-verse (and of superhero comics in general). First, the good, starting with how Wentworth Miller made an excellent Captain Cold. The episode didn't do a great job of showing his transition from violence-averse master thief to casually homicidal supervillain, but Miller was charismatic, he made most of the corny lines about keeping things cool and avoiding heat sound a bit less corny, and he came across as every bit the recurring headache that Cold ought to be to the Flash. Second to the good: this one looked great. As I hoped after seeing the pilot, the VFX team is only »

This week on The CW’s The Flash, a warm visit from Felicity could barely offset the cold reception Barry got from a new nemesis.
This episode, as the headline suggests, was cool for three reasons.
Felicity crossed over from Arrow to check in on her lightning-struck, once-comatose friend Barry, sure, but also to obviously see if their “spark” was still there, or if it ever was. This made all the sense in the world given the “break-up” Felicity and Oliver went through in the other show’s season opener, that she would test the waters to see »
The Flash may be too hot to handle, but Wentworth Miller's addition to the show is too cold to hold. The special guest star turned in a great performance as the episode's villain, and without giving too much away, I think it's safe to say that we'll be seeing him again in the future. Things continue to heat up for the title speedster outside of his life as a crimefighter when a familiar face shows up and offers a possible chance at romance. Will there be sparks? Or will one of them get the cold shoulder? Hit the jump for The Flash recap to find out. Barry gets a fun intro in this week's episode as he multitasks between playing ping pong with Cisco, chess with Dr. Wells, and Operation with Caitlin. (He wins 2 of 3). Meanwhile, some motor hoods are robbing an armored car with precision timing, but the »

Conan & Max Weinberg reunite after nearly 5 years Weinberg, who was Conan O'Brien's bandleader from 1993 until Conan's "Tonight Show" ended in January 2010, made his first appearance on the "Conan" TBS show, helping fill in on drums. Neil Patrick Harris: “In a perfect world, in five years I’m Ed Sullivan” Harris talked about his variety show dreams with Charlie Rose: "Once a week I’d get to, like, show everyone amazing performances on Broadway, amazing magicians, this great restaurant that we went to — to be a bit of a tastemaker. I’d get to be P.T. Barnum.” Plus: Will Harris save variety — or bury it? This is how the “Game of Thrones” Iron Throne is supposed to look Martin has said the show got the Iron Throne wrong: "I said repeatedly the Iron Throne is huge. It towers over the room like a great beast. And it's ugly. »

Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) makes his debut Tuesday night on the CW's “The Flash” and the iconic DC super-villain — at first known as Leonard Snart — promises to be every bit the thorn in Barry Allen's (Grant Gustin) side as comic fans might imagine. “It's not fun for Barry,” Gustin told TheWrap and other press on-set in Vancouver. “Like, it's fun for Snart and that's the whole thing that's driving him. It's like ‘oh, what's this new challenge?’ It's kind of re-energizing trying to take his game to the next level.” See photos: The CW Diversity Scorecard: From ‘Arrow’ to ‘Vampire. »

Things will get a little chilly during the Oct. 28 episode of “The Flash,” titled “Going Rogue,” which introduces one of the Scarlet Speedster’s most iconic and enduring villains: Captain Cold.
Cold, aka Leonard Snart, is played by “Prison Break” star Wentworth Miller, making his return to the small screen after a sojourn spent writing screenplays, including 2013’s gothic thriller “Stoker” and the upcoming “Disappointments Room.”
Speaking to Variety via email about what drew him back to television, Miller admitted, “I’d never heard of Captain Cold. But I’d heard of Greg Berlanti. I have a great deal of respect for what Greg’s accomplished, and I was interested in working with him in some capacity, as an actor or writer or both. So when the offer came in, I was open to coming on board even before I’d read the script. The fact that it was a »

Better grab a jacket, because tonight, The Flash is getting cold. Prison Break hottie Wentworth Miller makes his grand debut as the iconic DC villain Captain Cold—aka Leonard Snart—during tonight's episode of the CW's hit superhero show, and we can't stop brainstorming all the cold puns in honor of his brrrrrr-illiant new role! (Sorry.) So when we got the chance to melt Miller's icy exterior and get scoop on his chilling character, we froze. Just kidding! (And we're done with cold puns now, we promise.) We asked Miller six questions about The Flash, including whether his Captain Cold will differ from the comic book version, what it was like acting with his Prison »
