Following the defeat of Barry Allen's arch-nemesis Eobard Thawne (aka Reverse Flash), Team Flash quickly turned their attention to the singularity swirling high above Central City, but will Barry actually be able to save his city from impending doom?

My The Flash - Season One review can be found here!

I absolutely loved the first season so I was eagerly waiting for the new season. While Season Two is awesome, there are starting to be things in the show that I do not like.

Like Barry Allen! Barry had to be the worst character of the whole season, just so much complaining, whining, whinging and pig headedness. Always running off half-cocked, not listening to the team, screws up and then goes running back to them for help.

I really hope Barry improves in Season Three because there were some points throughout the season that he was hard to watch.

Cisco on the other hand; G.O.L.D! By far the best thing about the show and his character got bigger and better this season, still managing to stay the same character and so much more with the addition of his powers. Always on hand to make light of a dark situation without diminishing the importance of the situation.

I really hope Season Three brings a bigger and better storyline for Caitlin rather than her being in love and ultimately getting hurt. Having said that, I did absolutely love seeing Killer Frost – no matter how short it was.

The relationship between Barry and Joe is still as amazingly awesome as it was in Season One, just so heartfelt and pure. I originally was unconvinced of the idea of bringing back Tom Cavanagh full time but that changed throughout the season and worked really well without rehashing anything from the previous season.

This season I found Iris and Wally pretty useless, if they weren’t in the show; as far as I’m concerned they wouldn’t be missed. I felt that they brought Wally in too early to then just have him floating around in the background, he did get a bit more of a story towards the end of the season but that’s when they should have brought him in.

Now onto Zoom. Overall, I have to say I’m pretty disappointed and that has nothing to do with the acting. Teddy Sears was brilliant but I think the writing and the structure of the season let it down.

I started to get sick of the here and there appearances; in one episode and gone for two. Repeat. In my opinion, I don’t think we should have seen Zoom until the last episode before mid-season break or the returning episode afterwards. They should have spent the first half with miscellaneous bad guys from Earth 2 with inklings of Zoom, making him more of a menacing figure and then had his story more compacted through the second half of the show.

I still love this show, due to awesome dynamic between the cast, I think it’s the best of the DCTV universe so I will 100% be watching Season Three.
