OK I just watched The Flash's latest episode, The One With The Nineties. Just to briefly review it as it is as well as in comparison to other episodes. Spoilers to a minimum, if any major ones at all...
First and foremost, I've made it no secret in my many comments about the current Flash seasons that I'm not a fan of Chester P. Runk, his presence makes me cringe every so often (compared to, let's say, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor) as well as the fact that making him series regular is a mistake and I still stand by that. However, I will say, that as a standalone episode, it was fairly watchable. If nothing else, I will say it was Chester's best episode because of the focus being on his relationship with his father (who died) and is partially the reason Chester is the science nerd we know today. And who doesn't love a speech about one bad day can't ruin your life and you can make your own future? Plus, as a nineties kid, it was amusing for the most part, specifically the references to The Matrix and of course Jurassic Park at the beginning. So as a regular episode, like let's say if I'm channel surfing and "bumped into" this one, I would have liked this episode very, very much.
HOWEVER...if I'm being honest, this is not a great Flash episode, and is probably the worst episode of season 7 so far. Regardless on how well-executed it was, it was hardly the best "time loop" episode, and let me be clear here once again, it still hasn't changed my opinion on Chester's role on the show overall. Really, as a Flash episode, only the story with Nora aka Speed Force and the end with Joe warning Frost was worth watching. So yeah, a fun episode the first time, but nothing I want to bring up with friends or if I wanted rewatch a rerun.
Just my opinion on the subject. Feel free to bring up any agreements or if you disagree and it's in your top favorite episodes, I'm curious on other fans thoughts on this different episode. Comment below!
