The Flash, Season 1, Episode 7, “Power Outage”
Directed by Larry Shaw
Airs Tuesdays at 8pm Et on the CW
This week, The Flash goes up against Farooq (guest star Michael Reventar), a metahuman who must harness electricity in order to stay alive. During their battle, Farooq attacks The Flash and siphons all his powers. Meanwhile, Tockman leads a coup inside the Central City police department and takes several people hostage, including Joe and Iris.
With great power comes great responsibility. We’ve heard it time and time again, and while many superhero stories emphasize the burden of that responsibility, “Power Outage” takes a very different approach. This week, Barry admits that he loves being The Flash. We see it early on in the episode, when Barry uses his super-speed to cut through a lineup at a coffee shop, than later on when he laughs in »

Warning: This story contains major spoilers from the series premiere of The Flash. Read at your own risk. Barry Allen is going to die. Just kidding. Maybe. The series premiere of The CW’s Flash included an ominous closing scene that seemed to indicate a deadly future for Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) that may have left some viewers scratching their heads. For the uninitiated, Barry Allen first appeared on Arrow last season, crossing paths with Oliver (Stephen Amell) & Co. and making an impression on Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) before falling victim to an accident caused by S.T.A.R. »

The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers will unite once again to do battle with a series of weird and wonderful monsters. Though the series has been on air since 1993, this new incarnation will be a big budget reboot from the team behind Twilight, The Hunger Games and Divergent.
But what became of the original (and best!) Power Rangers cast we worshipped in the early '90s? Digital Spy finds out what happened to the all-action sextet below.
David Yost landed the role of Blue Ranger Billy Cranston just three months after moving to California in 1993. In an intriguing piece of trivia, his character was named after Bryan Cranston, who at the time was doing voice work for Power Rangers producer Haim Saban.
Yost appeared in more than 200 episodes of Power Rangers, making him the only Ranger to appear in every episode of the original series. »
It’s happened: the Power Rangers are heading back to the movies. And with luck, this time around Ivan Ooze won’t be anywhere within a twelve-mile radius of the theater.
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers remains one of the last glorious bastions of my childhood. Somewhere deep in my bedroom back home, there’s probably at least one expensive action figure (I got the kind that morph, because I was spoiled) hiding away. Although the brand has survived dozens of tinkerings and reboots over the years (Jungle Fury? Really?), the original three-season series is unsullied — in my mind, at least. »
