Welcome back to Up To Speed, home of the the Flashest Recaps Alive. Here we’ll recap the latest episode of The Flash, dispense some Flash Facts and talk about what works, what doesn’t and where the series might be headed, as we try and keep up with the adventures of the fastest man alive, Barry Allen, more widely known as The Flash.

Will Barry Allen be able to change the past without screwing up his present? Will Cisco finally be able to "get some"? Will Harrison Wells be able to hold his insatiable bloodlust in check?

Watch This: Nick Posts The Hour-Long ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Battle For New York’ Online, And It’s Bonkers

TMNT: Battle For New York

I've been completely in the tank for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics ever since I caught up, but to be honest, I've had a much harder time getting into the animated series that's running on Nickelodeon. I've liked pretty much everything I've seen from it --- especially that one episode where they start LARPing their way through the sewers in full-on wizard costumes --- but since there actually is a pretty complex continuity on the show and I haven't found a real streaming option to start from the beginning, I haven't tried.

When Nick announced that they were putting the hour-long "Fight From New York" episode online, though, I decided that I'd do my best to give it a shot. Sadly, it's one of those login-with-your-Cable-Company dealies, but if you can, I'd suggest giving it a watch, because it is 100% bananas. I mean, where else are you going to see Corey Feldman get in a fistfight with Gilbert Gottfried?
