Arrow Season 5 Episode 9 – TV Review

Arrow What We Leave Behind Laurel back

Hopefully for real real, not for play play.
Poor Captain Cold.

The only thing missing from this episode was a concrete reveal of Prometheus’ identity.

But otherwise, it’s got it all (except Curtis’ subplot, but that’s par for the course).

I know I’ve been saying it all season, but this ain’t no Season 4, anymore. For so, so much the better.

Arrow Season 5 Episode 7 – TV Review

Arrow Vigilante Thea Quentin rehab

Who knew Thea and Quentin would end up being the best parts of Arrow?

Is it wrong that the most compelling sections of the episode in a superhero action show don’t involve any superheroes or action?

God, CW. You got me.

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 5 Episode 1 – TV Review

Arrow Legacy Laurel Lance statue

They… tried? I think?

This hilariously awful Laurel Lance/Black Canary statue is kind of a symbol of where Arrow is right now.

It’s still garbage, but it’s making something of an effort to appease the Olicity-fatigued naysayers. Myself included.

But it’ll take more than one episode to turn around the shit sandwich that was Season 4.

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 22 – TV Review

Arrow Lost in the Flood Donna Curtis

There’s a Smoak around, so I assume so.

It’s the penultimate episode of the season, and Felicity already did a big computer hacking job last episode. Not to mention that she will likely be catatonic from the guilt of killing tens of thousands of people.

So it’s Oliver’s, the Green Arrow’s, time to shine, right?

No.

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.
