The Weekly Round-Up – 30/11-06/12

It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. The Arrow and Flash crossover. This week sees Straling City’s ex-billionaire vigilante, Oliver Queen, take on Central City’s loveable dork Barry Allen in a epic two-part event – over two nights! A moment that has been over a year in the making, comic-book fans can finally see two DC favourites duke it out on screen.

The Flash Vs Arrow - Title

Seriously, I cannot stress how exciting this really is! It’s the Scarlet Speedster Vs the Emerald Archer – what’s not to love?! But if that’s not enough, we’ve got a return for Agents Of SHIELD – arguably the strongest comic-book show on TV right now (don’t hate me Flash/Arrow/Constantine fans!). Coulson & co. are following up on some pretty Inhuman leads as the show gears up for its very exciting looking mid-season finale.

Hit the jump to check out my thoughts on the above, along with the latest episodes from ConstantineBrooklyn Nine-Nine and more…


Sunday, 30/11


There was no new episode of Homeland this week.


Brooklyn Nine-Nine Banner - Title

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, FOX – Road Trip

Peralta and Santiago manage to capture some of their old spark as they head off to the country with their respective others – but perhaps it’s a little untimely? The episode is still a barrel of laughs – with a Charles/Holt cooking alliance standing out in particular – 8/10


Monday, 01/12


The Blacklist is on its winter break.


Gotham is on its winter break.


Tuesday, 02/12

Agents Of SHIELD, ABC – Ye Who Enter Here

While the decision to remove Mack from proceedings may not have sat well with me at the end (he better be returning), some truly excellent character work between Fitz/Simmons and another round of great storytelling shows just how far SHIELD has come – 8/10

The Flash, The CW – Flash Vs Arrow

Arguably the biggest TV event of the year – the much-anticpated Flash/Arrow crossover didn’t disappoint. Oliver and Barry shared a fantastic new dynamic as superhero partners, while the supporting casts from both shows put in major shift as well. Great fun! – 9/10


Wednesday, 03/12


Arrow Banner

Arrow, The CW – The Brave And The Bold

This episode was so much fun! Barry and Oliver were on fire for a second night in a row, while it was great to see the likes of Roy and Cisco interact with one another. Captain Boomerang was incredibly badass. Accent aside, he was handled very well – 9/10


Thursday, 04/12


The Big Bang Theory did not air this week.


Elementary Banner - Title

Elementary, CBS – Teri Pericolosa

It’s been a bit ‘hit and miss’ so far for Elementary this season, and this episode offers more of the same. Sherlock and Watson’s new parental dynamic over Kitty is both funny and entraining, but the lack of a compelling mystery continues to drag the show down – 7/10


Friday, 05/12


Constantine Banner - Title

Constantine, NBC – Blessed Are The Damned

The finale really ups the ante, but the rest is pretty forgettable. Constantine seems stuck in that early phase of thin mysteries, and unlike the likes of Agents Of SHIELD and Gotham, it hasn’t got much time to evolve. It was nice to see Manny more involved though – 7/10


Saturday, 06/12


No shows aired this week.


Catch-Up, N/A


Brooklyn Nine-Nine Banner - Title

Broolyn Nine-Nine, FOX – The Mole | Jake And Sophia

Wuntch is by far the weakest part of Season 2, dragging down Holt, but kudos to the writers for ending Gina & Boyle on such a sweet note. Although predictable, Jake And Sophia offered a fun love interest for Peralta. Hopefully she sticks around – 8/108/10


Brooklyn Nine-Nine Banner - Title

Broolyn Nine-Nine, FOX – Lockdown | USPIS

Peralta calling the shots at the precinct was one of the funniest ideas of the year, offering a great mix of laughter and stupidity. However, topping the Lockdown was Ed Helms’ incompetent agent in USPIS – and his wonderful chemistry with Jake – 8/10 | 9/10
