Arrow Season 4 Episode 23 – TV Review

Arrow Schism Oliver rousing speech

“And yelling at one city block’s worth of looters is definitely the best use of my time right now.”

I’m not mad, anymore.

I just feel defeated.

As I imagine the cast of Arrow feels.

Arrow Season 4 Episode 11 – TV Review

Arrow AWOL Amanda Waller dead

Yeah, but what are they going to do about The Flash’s entire show come Justice League time?

It’s a fucking Lyla and Diggle episode, but without Arrow’s version of the Suicide Squad to back it up (not that they’ve proven to be worth much, anyway).

It’s also a Felicity episode.

But not just any Felicity episode. A Felicity episode with grating hallucinations.

Arrow Season 4 Episode 1 – TV Review

Arrow Green Arrow Super Friends

Felicity ruins literally everything.

And so it begins: the first of five episodes to determine whether or not I stick with Arrow.

Well, they’re still doing the flashbacks. So that’s not a good start.

Arrow Season 3 Episode 19 – TV Review

Arrow Broken Arrow Oliver tears

I wish Oliver had a reason to cry every episode.

There are two main character deaths.

One real.

One false.

If only they could have both been real.

Arrow Season 3 Episode 15 – TV Review

Arrow Nanda Parbat Ra's shirtless

I respect Ra’s’ priorities. His shirtless, toned priorities.

Thea does the smartest thing she’s done in a long time and sets the League of Assassins after Malcolm.

Then Oliver does the dumbest thing he’s done in a long time and spends the rest of the episode trying to save him.

Thea’s idiocy isn’t gone: it just changed hosts.

Arrow Season 3 Episode 14 – TV Review

Arrow The Return Slade Thea hostage

Thought I’d Aussie it up a bit.

Don’t worry, he’s gone just as quickly.

No rehashing villains for this season’s arcs.

They’re just trotted out for padding when required.

Arrow Season 3 Episode 10 – TV Review

Arrow Left Behind Laurel Black Canary

Wig’s a bit much, though.

Oh, and Oliver isn’t dead, you guys. Obviously.

Well, not anymore.

Arrow Season 3 Episode 8 – TV Review

Arrow Oliver Barry Allen Flash The Brave and the Bold

Compared to Oliver, Barry’s not too flash.

This is the second part of the Arrow/The Flash crossover. I’ve seen the first part, which was a The Flash episode. But nothing of consequence occurred there that isn’t covered here.

The whole thing is really just an exercise in whingeing about ideology, anyway.

Sorry to spoil.

Arrow Season 3 Episode 4 – TV Review

Arrow Thea upside down The Magician Nyssa

If only Thea was able to fade into the shadows like Batman.

After making sure we all know about how much of a kung fu badass she is last episode, Thea fails to use any said badassery to save herself this episode.

At least we can count on Thea to be consistent in her ability to be a constant disappointment.

Still like her haircut, though.

Arrow Season 3 Episode 3 – TV Review

Arrow Laurel vigilante Corto Maltese

Take some tips from Sarah and Oliver: get a big, fancy, draq queen wig, and slop on a shit-tonne of eyeshadow.

Yes, Laurel. You need to take baby steps.

But still, I’d think Laurel would be able to handle ambushing a drunk douchebag.

What happened to this Laurel?
