As high as the season premiere episode reached last week, this week’s episode fell short of wowing audiences again. It’s too be expected though. You can’t keep up the wow factor from opening night to the next. Titled, “Mixed Signals,” the episode sent mixed signals throughout the entire episode. After being locked up within the Speedforce one would think you’d go insane. But when Barry escaped, he had been acting as if everything was just as he had left. Of course, that was not the case, nor was it ever as viewers would discover later in the show.

While the series has been on a bit of a roll, the season premiered began with some mixed emotions. Of course, you had plenty of people who were happy to see the return of the Scarlet Speedster, but there were also some who thought Barry hadn’t been gone long enough. And there were even those who thought he should have stayed in there for an episode or two longer while everyone else worked to solve any personal issues that may have developed over the Summer.

Some disappointing news for Star Wars fans, today. In an announcement made earlier today, it seems that Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have parted ways with Lucasfilm over “creative difference” with the upcoming (and still untitled) Han Solo movie. However, despite the set back, the scheduled release of Memorial Day 2018 is still goal. It’ll be interesting to see how long that date will stick, and, more importantly, how long it will take to find replacements for Lord and Miller. This isn’t just any ordinary film – it’s quite the undertaking.

But when it comes to the tale of Batman & Robin, the sting feels like it happened just yesterday.

What happens in it is pretty big.
