Arrow Season 5 Episode 19 – TV Review

It’s a Felicity-heavy episode, and I didn’t hate it that much.

If it wasn’t for the tedium, Diggle having had his brain fall out, and Adrian’s plan’s uselessness, maybe I could see some hope for Arrow, yet.

Arrow Season 5 Episode 4 – TV Review

Arrow Penance Ragman

The only thing I remembered about him is that I’ve forgotten him before.

Ragman just isn’t the same without the rags.

It’d be like the Green Arrow not wearing green. Unthinkable!

Arrow Season 5 Episode 3 – TV Review

Arrow A Matter of Trust Cody Rhodes

It’s a struggle. But, like a CGI arrow sluicing through unfeeling villain flesh, we’re getting there.

Actually, the above representation isn’t really accurate.

There’s no way an arrow could be used to symbolise Season 4.

Replace it with a whingeing Felicity head, then it’d be close.

Arrow Season 5 Episode 2 – TV Review

Arrow The Recruits Felicity Havenrock guilty

Tens of thousands, actually. Right, Lyla?

Is it wrong that Peppy, Not-Dating-Oliver Felicity is enjoyable, and I’m now dreading the repercussions of Havenrock sneaking up to get her?

Well, that’s what happens when your street-level vigilante hero show plays the nuke card. And now we’re stuck with it.

Unless Felicity dies. Which would be fine.

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 21 – TV Review

Arrow Monument Point nuke

Every little piece of debris stands for a moment of Felicity-shilling. Yes, that many.

You thought Felicity was bad enough when she was trying to hog the blame spotlight for Laurel’s death.

Well, get ready for her to legitimately have tens of thousands of deaths on her hands.

I don’t think we’re ready for that level of Felicity-pandering.

Brace. Your. Selves.

Arrow Season 4 Episode 20 – TV Review

Arrow Genesis Diggle shoots Andy

Losing the Suicide Squad to the movies worked out. Except for Amanda.

But don’t worry. Felicity makes sure to thrust her malignantly tumorous self into the episode at every given chance.

It’s her duty.

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.
