  • Flash recognises his long-missing dad stepping from a rift.

    6.5
    I'm sorry but what are the script writer doing??? One improbability followed by the next.

    The scene with Dale and Flash covering up for Dale's boyfriend was abysmal. She's supposed to be this quick-witted reporter but she can't think of a good excuse??? Flash's suggestion about grammar was atrocious. I realise it was meant to look contrived, but this was simply too much.

    Another scene, gaining entry to a high-level private laboratory to talk this female scientis is as easy as knocking out the guard at the gate. There doesn't seem to be a guard at the main entrance to the building and they manage to find the right lab without any problems. It's just not well-written. These relatively little things detract from the main storyline and kinda spoil the enjoyment...moreless
  • Dad's not being very nice.

    9.0
    This was an excellent episode, with the assassin looking like Flash's Father. This added to the mystery and made the episode more adventurous. I really think the show is finally finding it's rythmn and the acting and writing is getting much better. By the end of the season they will have a solid show and I hope will get another season. I really like this show even though some parts can be a little bit campy, I think that just adds to the flavor of the show. The plot-line was an interesting direction for the writers to go, to eliminate all of the scientists and gather information. I thought it was a really well done episode.moreless
  • nice episode

    7.5
    a rift opens on earth, flash and baylin investigate what went through it. flash find out that it's someone who looks like his long lost dad. but this person who appears to look like his dad commits crime and does some really nasty stuff. flash gets to the bottom of this mystery and endangers his life along the way. this episode focus on flash's dad, or whoever or whatever he is. it's a nice episode, the plot wasn't too complicated to follow, it's just fun to watch. the story is fluid as it moves from one scene to the next, it's an exciting episode.moreless
