The Coincidental Critic

Exploring the art of storytelling.

Dull Plastique


In “Plastique,” we got to see the whole gang hang out outside of S.T.A.R. Labs.  This allowed us to learn a bit more about their personal life and see the characters interact in a more relaxed environment.  I hope to see the characters branch out from the police station and S.T.A.R. Labs in future episodes.

Joe’s laugh is absolutely infectious.  Barry showed off his speedy vocal chords, and instead of Joe being impressed and awed, he let out a huge chuckle.  I couldn’t help but laugh because I was thinking the same thing.  Sometimes superhero powers are so outrageous, you just need to make fun of them.  It was the best part of the episode and proved that the show doesn’t take itself too seriously.

I wasn’t the biggest fan of the character Bette Sans Souci.  She was boring and one-dimensional.  The creators could have done so much more with her character.  She was one of the only metas who wasn’t a “bad guy,” which was new and interesting, but her storyline fell short, and we didn’t get to learn much about her.  It was disappointing and unsatisfying.
