The American educational system should really take some notes from Comedy Central.

The Flash (CW, 8 p.m.) – Season two kicks off with some dude, who thought that Atom Smasher would be a cool super villain name, attacking the city as Barry tries to go into it solo and save everyone on his own. Iris, like the rest of us, thinks that’s a bad idea.
