The Flash: The Complete Second Season (Blu-ray+ UltraViolet)
Last year, the S.T.A.R. Labs Particle Accelerator exploded, creating a dark matter storm that struck forensic scientist Barry Allen — bestowing him with super-speed and making him the fastest man alive. But Barry wasn’t the only person who was given extraordinary abilities that night. The dark matter also created meta-humans — many of whom have wreaked havoc on the city. With the help of the S.T.A.R Labs team, Caitlin Snow, Cisco Ramon and Dr. Harrison Wells, Barry protects the people of Central City from these powerful new threats as The Flash. Following the defeat of Allen's arch-nemesis Eobard Thawne (aka Reverse Flash), Team Flash must quickly turn their attention to the singularity swirling high above Central City, consuming everything in its path. Armed with the heart of a hero and the ability to move at super speeds, Barry charged into the eye of the singularity, but can he actually save his city from impending doom?]]>

When we last left the Flash during season one, Eddie had helped vanquish the Reverse Flash but the result was the opening of a singularity over Central City. The Flash frantically tries to use his speed to close the singularity but it is the sacrifice of Firestorm that ultimately does the trick. Barry Allen now works alone in fear that he will put those who he cares about in danger.
The singularity has some lasting effects including opening a interdimenisonal holes between our world and an alternate universe and there are meta-humans and an evil speedster called Zoom that are coming through. Zoom wants the Flash's speed just as he stole the speed of the alternate Earth's Flash.
While elements of the second season were certainly redundant and recalled the first, there were enough changes to continue to make it interesting for most fans. As always, the cast give terrific performances and the tone of the show remains pitch perfect for the most part (although I found King-Shark a stretch). Certainly season two dragged towards the middle of the season (which I don't think it was a problem with season one) the first half of season two and the last third will keep you engaged. The story arc of season two allows us to see elements of "The Flash of Two Worlds" comic (certainly the iconic cover of that comic book).
There's also the issue of plot holes and unexplained mysteries from season two (and some that were glossed over--time remanent became the deus ex machina of the series). Having said that with the complex plotting of this season (like last) it sometimes overwhelmed the material.
Warner has given "The Flash: Season Two" an exceptionally good looking transfer. Audio is terrific throughout and is immersive.
I do wish that this set had the option to play the episodes continuously without the credits (as brief as they are) but it's a minor annoyance. The set has plenty of special features 22 featurette a including the 2015 Paleyfest appearance, Comic-Con, behind-the-scenes creation of the visual effects, deleted scenes doe select episodes and a gag reel. I would have liked some commentary tracks on key episodes but I'm happy that we got as much as we did in the way of featurettes for the series. It's a solid blu-ray release. There's also a fold out booklet detailing each episode with a brief synopsis and which special features are on each disc. There's also the cross over episodes for "The Arrow".
We also get the Ultraviolet option for watching online. There is no iTunes option.
We also get subtitles in English, Spanish, French, Korean, Portugese, Danish, Finish, Norweign, Swedish and SDH. There's also an ability to watch the first three episodes of season three the night after they air commercial free (this expires 11/14/16). The BD case comes in a cardboard holder.
Season two of "The Flash" maybe feel li,e season one redux but there are enough twists and turns to keep much of the season fresh and sets up the action for season three and the possibility of Crisis on Infinite Earths as a story arc.
(C) side three
This show alternates between "cannot suspend disbelief" and "boring antagonist challenges"
It's okay, but a lot of the episodes are just stretched out with endings that you cannot believe.
We ended up being bored in the end, didn't even care when Season 3 started and then we watched 1 or 2 episodes of Season 3 and gave it up for good; even deleted unwatched episodes off DVR to make space for other things.
Too bad. Had the potential and I think Season 1 was fairly good but to much over-reaching in subsequent seasons.
My only complaint is that I purchased the blu-ray and digital HD, however the code for the digital HD does not work. When I go to redeem the code it says it has been already used. On the pieces of paper with the code it says that it had expired already, which doesn't always matter because I've been able to get the digital copy with the expired code.( That was before I decided to digitalised my movies.) The code is one of the perks of buying this dvd set and it is extremely disappointing that I can't even use it because it had been used.
**We really liked the first couple of seasons but I'm disappointed that it jumped the shark once the "flashpoint" happened. :(
Really good throughout the season and will keep you entertained.
