The FlashBack: ‘The Flash’ – Episode 1 “Pilot”

The pilot opens up with a voice-over introducing us to Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) and setting the stage for the series itself: “To understand what I’m about to tell you, you need to do something first. You need to believe in the impossible. Can you do that? Good. You see that red blur? That’s me! That, too! There I am again! My name is Barry Allen—I’m the fastest man alive.” With that established Barry runs us through the important parts of his background, establishing that Barry has always had a wide heroic streak, running away from bullies and identifying just how wrong it is. We are also taken through the fateful night when Barry is eleven and he sees his mother trapped in a circle of yellow and red blurs as she screams for Barry to run. Barry’s dad, Henry Allen (John Wesley Shipp who actually played the Flash in CBS’ series in the 90s) comes down and yells for Barry to run. In a blink young Barry is transported miles away and his life is turned upside down: his mother is dead and his father is charged with and convicted of the crime and Barry has been searching for the real killer ever since.

A Beautiful Decay: “Gone Girl” Soundtrack Haunts

Secrets Have a Way of Surfacing: “Gone Girl”

There is something hauntingly incongruous about the juxtaposition of lush, rolling green hills, leafy expanses of riverbank, and decaying Southern town with a sudden disappearance-feared-horrible-murder and yet director David Fincher manages to fit those things together flawlessly in the film adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl. If you haven’t read the book or seen the film please be aware that there may be spoilers in this review.

Recipes for Apple Season

Although Fall arrived in retail stores at the beginning of this month, it’s really only been the actual season for a week. As much as I love Fall flavors, I try my best to hold off on cooking and baking with them until this time so we all don’t burn out on them before the […]

There Is Nothing Flattering About Harassment

Back in August Doree Lewak wrote in the New York Post that she found catcalls flattering. She went on for paragraphs about how being shouted at by men, specifically construction workers, made her feel sexy. She even said she willingly and excitedly enjoyed being their “objectified sex thing.”

Gluten Free Travel Snacks That Don’t Suck

Dietary restrictions are a drag. Think about it: for whatever reason you just can’t eat certain things or ingredients and it limits your tasty landscape. No dietary restriction is fun, though some are easier to handle than others. Nut and dairy restrictions generally still leave a person with lots of options. But a wheat or […]

Are Love Letters a Lost Art?

Call me old-fashioned, but there’s something incredibly sweet and artful about love letters. The last few years of our social platform has skyrocketed (thanks to the Internet and smartphones) in a very innovative way as mass socialization among users with texting, tweeting, and one-sentence status updates exponentially expands. These social networks have enabled minute-by-minute communication as a necessity for millions, but falls short on genuine sentiment.
