Exploring the art of storytelling.
“Grodd Lives” was obviously all about Grodd, the supernatural gorilla that Dr. Wells and Eiling once experimented on. I was impressed with the CGI used to create Grodd, especially considering that “The Flash” is a TV show. Grodd was well detailed, and I could believe he was a gorilla not only in the way he looked, but in the way his body moved. Grodd was frightening. I would argue that he is the scariest villain yet. And fun fact: he hates bananas.
As impressive as Grodd was, his storyline seemed unnecessary. From what I’ve heard, Grodd is a part of the original comic (I haven’t read the comics); however, I did not understand his importance in the CW’s TV show other than to be a distraction as Dr. Wells had intended. I’m curious if Grodd will have more of a significant role in future episodes.
