Yeah, I thought tha kid was ok, too. But have you caught any reruns of Smallville lately? To me, that show does NOT hold up, and maybe th eproducers were wanting to distance themselves from that entire storyline and characters?

I liked Smallville when it was on, but it really is hard trying to sit through an episode now. Justin Hartley did a good job as Green Arrow, so no knock on him.

Smallville wasn't a good show, really, in any way. It's strength was that it was the only show of its kind on tv. But the acting was bad, the production value and effects were poor, the story lines were goofy. Not that it wasn't fun, and once I started watching it during (I think) season 4 or 5 (it was far enough in that I was able to see reruns from the begninning), I stuck with it until the end (it was a guilty pleasure...), but I don't think trying anything to that show, especially now that it's been off the air for a couple years would do anybody any good.

I really liked it. There were a few things that seemed derivative, but so what - it's a street-level superhero origin story, and it was done really well. Also, I love the way they're interpreting the character, and integrated aspects of the story like Speedy, and hints of those early-70's Green Lantern/Green Arrow social-consciousness story lines. The fight and chase scenes were also really gripping and well-shot. I will keep watching this.

Edit: Oh, another thing: Amell did a good job in conveying that his darker self was his actual self, and the 'playboy' was a front, and not the other way around. Whenever he was pretending to still be the give-me-a-drink party-boy, he delivered his lines just a little flatter, so it seemed Queen, not Amell, was a bad actor. It gave an edge to the character, which I was pleasantly surprised to see.

After four eps, I like where this show is headed. My only complaint would be that the show has Arrow targeting a new billionaire bad guy of the week. That could get old soon - seriously, how many rich, corrupt bad guys are in this city?!

I do like that they're going for the Nolan-esq "no super powers" universe. I'm eager to see how they'll develop (Dinah) Laurel Lance; as to IF she'll become Black Canary in this series.

Per wiki, there's 10 eps this season. Hopefully, they'll start developing Merlin's (antagonist) character soon.

At first I didn't like the whole Green Arrow killing thing... but I've come to accept that that vigilante trait fits this character. Not a lot of "trick" arrows either, but that's OK. Also fits within the scheme of this rendition of Green Arrow.

I'm eager to see where this show will go.

I think wiki is wrong. Arrow got a full season pickup after the second episode. 22 episodes as I recall.

I also like where the show is going, and I like that they've outed him so quickly. I thought it was great that they found footage of him in the stairwell, and I'm curious to see how they get out of it. Entertaining show.

I have really enjoyed this show so far. Never gotten dull and the story has really been top notch. Taking on the character from Nolan's batman POV.

Oh, and some of the exercises they show him doing are impressive as hell. Christ in tonights ep he was doing pullups all the way to his waist. JFC that has to be hard.

Didn't see last night's episode yet but kinda enjoy the series. I am unsure about the new "sidekick" thing but wish they would do more of the flashbacks to the island.

There is a lot of story to get into then just His Dads hit list thing. The mother and the boat and the secret cabal type thing going on is interesting.

Also did the police detective play a Wizard in a short lived series which was cool but Sci-fi (syfi) cancelled cause the management there sucks?

Yeah, he was in the Dresden Files.

I really like the show, too. One thing that's a downer, though, is the sound is really bad. It's kind of "echo-y" and you have to really crank it up. Maybe it's just us (standard def on DirecTV) but the commercials sound normal and so does Supernatural right after.

'Arrow's' Manu Bennett Upped to Series Regular for Season 2 (Exclusive) (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/arrow-manu-bennett-season-2-430044)

He joins recently promoted Colton Haynes and Emily Bett Rickards on the CW's Stephen Amell starrer.

The series has promoted Manu Bennett to series regular for its recently announced second season, The Hollywood Reporter has learned exclusively.

On the network's adaptation of DC Comics' long-running title, Bennett plays Slade Wilson -- who in the comics ultimately becomes Arrow's villain Deathstroke. Producers have been cagey if Bennett would follow his comic book counterpart and transform into the famed villain, featuring multiple Deathstrokes during its freshman run.
Exec producers Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim have thus far written Slade as an ally to Stephen Amell's Oliver, appearing in Arrow's flashbacks to their time on the island.

Bennett joins Colton Haynes (Roy Harper) and Emily Bett Rickards (Ollie's IT whiz Felicity Smoak) as series regulars for Arrow's second season. He's currently wrapping the third and final season of Starz's Spartacus, where he plays Crixus. Repped by Sanders Armstrong Caserta Management, Bennett also stars as Azog in all three Hobbit films.

http://screencrush.com/arrow-season-2-poster/

‘Arrow‘ season 2 won’t debut on The CW until October 9, nearly a month behind the other network premieres, though in the meantime we’ve kept up with the superhero drama’s latest DC castings. Now, media from ‘Arrow’ season 2 has finally begun to leak out after Comic-Con 2013, highlighting the cast in an all new poster that doesn’t shamelessly flaunt its abs!

We’d be hard-pressed to derive any information from the first official ‘Arrow’ season 2 poster (obtained via TVLine), though at least the series regular status of Colton Haynes (Roy Harper), Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak) and Manu Bennett (Slade Wilson) earns a bit of reflection. If nothing else, Slade certainly looks ready for action, and his presence with the other regulars could suggest a present-day appearance!

In addition to incorporating Metamorpho, The Atom and The Flash, ‘Arrow’ season 2 will pick up on October 9 some time after the events of season 1 finale “Sacrifice,” continuing its ‘Batman Begins’-influenced storytelling with the addition of new villains Isabel Rochev (Summer Glau), Brother Blood (Kevin Alejandro), Bronze Tiger (Michael Jai White), League of Assasins member Al-Owal (‘Homeland”s Navid Negahban) and DC character Sin (‘The Killing”s Bex Taylor Klaus).

Just watched season one on Netflix. Really, really liked it. Probably the best superhero TV show I've seen. I watch almost everything on Netflix a year after it airs, but I'm considering paying Amazon for season 2 so I can watch at as it comes out.

Did any of you see the old Flash TV show from the early 90s? It was pretty good for its time. Mark Hamill played the Trickster in one episode, and did such a great job that it lead to his voicing the Joker on the Batman: TAS cartoon and then subsequent cartoons and video games. Arrow reminds me a lot of that Flash show -- obviously, Arrow's much better with 20 years of innovation to build on, but it reminds me of that Flash show in that it's giving us a surprisingly good interpretation of a second tier hero.

Interesting how over the past decade, Marvel's done so much better with movies and DC's done much better with live action TV shows. I'd say the cartoons are a push now what with Marvel's recent Avengers and Spider-Man series rivaling the Bruce Timm cartoons.

I think DC's still quite a bit ahead cartoon-wise. They've just had so many good ones. They both have a problem with networks cancelling the good ones (Avengers Assemble/Justice League Unlimited (which basically ended the DCU begun by BTAS)/Young Justice). Ultimate Spider-Man is okay, but it doesn't have anything like the storyline quality of earlier series. The new Avengers series is a mixed mag at best.

I like Beware the Batman, despite the CGI look, but I have a feeling it's been quietly canceled the way Young Justice and the suprisingly good Green Lantern series were earlier in the year. About a month ago they just stopped showing it, with no explanation. So the only DC thing they have on is the just awful Teen Titans cartoon (think the same juvenile 4th wall breaking and in jokes of Ultimate Spider-Man, but done much worse...).

I have a gut feeling that we may be seeing the end of DC cartoons for a while. Marvel really has the edge long term with their Disney connection.

It is a different character, but she still seems pretty limited in range. At least so far. Instead of 'crazy summer glau' she seems like 'angry summer glau' with a bit of 'lonely summer glau' thrown in a couple weeks ago. If that makes any sense.

She actually had a different sort of role on Alphas on SyFy, too. I thought she was better there, a bit more subtle, but it took some time to get her to that point. Maybe the same happens on Arrow.

I've been following this show because I'm more or less a DC fan (though I hate what they've done with the reboot). I've always found it really lame that they made Ollie Batman-lite and not only that, specifically NOLAN-batman-lite. The mid-season finale in December got me pumped but it seems like the only great episodes that get the ball rolling have actual comic book writers involved (Geoff Johns) and the rest are pretty soap opera/mediocre/bleh. I like how they've starting shipping Ollie and Felicity though. The whole Roy/Thea/kids arc is really annoying.. there's a lot of dead weight characters on the show like Diggle whose soul purpose is to be morale support and say stuff like "well back when I was in the military.." and of course Laurel whose been really useless since the start of the season.

The show is really bad except for the few episodes that actual comic book writers are in charge of (like the mid-season finale). Diggles and Laurel have gone beyond useless in this show and have absolutely no role.

I laughed out loud during one of his typical worthless scenes.

"You know, Roy, Slade, some guys I served with, some people are just broken. *hands Ollie his ringing cell phone that was 2 feet in front of him anyways*"

ROFL

You can count on the writers to have him say something generic about his time as a Marine and then do something pointless just for the sake of giving him screen time because.. he exists. They looked like they were setting him up as an actual partner who could fight along side him sometimes back in Season 1 due to his experience/training.. then he just turned out to have no role at all.

First thing i understand with a tv show is, what are the producers going with it. I know its never going to be an award winner, its based off a comic book. Its going to be a little cheesy and unbelievable. Once i get that through my thick head, i can enjoy it. The "drama" part doesnt bother me as my neighbor and her daughters made me get over that shit a long time ago. Plus, i understand they need that shit for the female audience as well.

Then again i do this for alot of tv shows and it allows me to enjoy them. If i want my super serious award writing/acting shows, i know where to watch those too.

I loved the fact we got a little Harley Quinn part (same chick that does the the Batman Video games). We got a quick introduction to who the flash is (previous Episodes). Then did the Suicide Squad was a cool touch then at the end of yesterdays Episode we got Deathstroke in his full gear (yeah we know who he is already, still awesome).

This is by far the best Comic adapted show and i dont think its even close after Arrow.

Probably. That's not saying much.

What do you want him running around campy golden age like in bright green? Or do you want to give him a british accent and give money to the poor?

I don't give a shit about what he wears, though the makeup was a bad look before and not a fan of the long sleeves. I'd rather him act like, you know, Oliver Queen instead of a watered down version of Nolan's already whiney rendition of Bruce Wayne. You don't have to be a pathetic emo bitch to be "dark and gritty." Ollie is no stranger to murder and remorse but how he deals with it is the opposite of Bruce.

As for villians, his are shit. It is smart of them to at least bring in greater known villians, especially since they will probably never be a serious live action batman series..

His villians are shit, except for Merlyn and Count Vertigo (who in this series is a blatant ripoff of Heath Ledger's Joker--coincidence?), but it gets old when they rewrite every single Batman associated character to revolve around "Arrow," even the more obscure ones. They already introduced Barry Allen, why not dig through his rogue gallery to tie in with the spinoff show when it rolls around? There are plenty worthy villians in the DCU that don't require being taken from the Batverse. Even the ones they did aren't exactly "mainstream" or "well known" so what's the point other than blatantly taking the position of "well since we couldn't get the Batman license, let's just make Arrow as close to Batman as possible."

She doesn't exist in the comics. Neither does Laurel. Both are made up characters (ala "Rachel" or "Blake" in the Nolan movies) who only exist in this show. CW has already publicly said that they intended for Laurel to become Canary--but this was in Season 1 before Sarah came back so maybe they changed directions and brought Sarah back for this purpose instead.

Good episode lastnight. Next week should be a good showdown with Deathstroke. oNly parts i didnt care for was Laurel looking right at Sara with a tiny mask over her eyes and not recognizing her own sister, but its a comic book tv show so i can let that go. The fight Season with Black Canary and The Huntress was pretty badass.

I like how someone put it earlier, the "CW Drama". I didn't know how else to explain it, but yeah, that's pretty much much my problem with it. Overly dark (set), overly brooding, overly emo. Season 1 had potential, but it's just gone all too tight jean on me.

I guess I like the Disney princess vibe better. ;)

I really tried to like it. It does have hot chicks, so that's a plus. I finally gave up a couple of months ago. I am glad it's popular though, so maybe they'll make more comic book shows.

It is dark, with most of the action occurring at night, and he is involved with a variety of the female characters, but I don't really see any of it as "broody" or "emo". I think the relationships are handled in a fairly mature/adult way, as opposed to the teen angst that (I assume, since I've never watched) you would see on shows like Vampire Diaries. It's certainly not Smallville in that regard.

There is the struggle with killing after Tommy died, but I think that's an integral part of the development of the character, and the struggle with darkness/evil within that's been a core element of the show since the beginning.

04-01-2014, 08:18 AM
You don't think Ollie is broody? Wow. That's like his schtick as I see it. The whole show is about him and his ability to handle/hide his emotions. All his friends treat the guy with kid gloves in case he explodes in a tortured and painful release of emotions. Every episode felt like I was just waiting for the moment he would break into tears, drop to his knees, and howl into the wind at the futility of it all. Ugh.

After Captain Jack took off, I was left with hoping Dresden could revive things with just some plain old rage vengeance, but instead got an alcoholic Laurel.

This. It's without fault in every episode where he gets broody and emo and borderline breaks down in tears which is the exact opposite of how Ollie is supposed to be. I honestly prefer Smallville's version. He was closer to what he's supposed to be and came on the show as like a mysterious James Bond who had his own issues but was still upbeat as opposed to Arrow's downtrodden and emotionally repressed version. In Smallville they were able to hit on all the same beats with Ollie (heart break, drugs, murder) without having it completely way down the character.

I'm still liking this show quite a bit (just watched the one where his sister wrecked her car on her 18th).

My main issue is that I find the island storyline much more compelling and interesting than the city storyline. The island is just so interesting. I like all the mystery they build, but I'm worried that once the mystery is revealed (how the Black Archer got trained, how/if he's related to the island, WTF is actually going on at the island), then the show will lose some of its appeal.

I can see that as well. In that the initial "mystery" will be revealed then the writers try to go all Lost/Xfiles with it and jump the share in their efforts to keep the storyline going beyond when it should be wrapped up.

I didn't expect him to tell Laurel that at the end, that's just twisting the knife after what he told Thea. Which I thought was a great setup, as well, making it sound like it would be about Oliver when it was about her paternity, even though that was what I suspected he'd tell her.

Laurel in the DA's office could be a real problem for Ollie now.

So much set up now. Quentin in prison because of Oliver. He knows the Black Canary's identity and Laurel knows the Arrow's, so will they tell each other?. Thea's revelation opens the door for the return of Malcolm Merlyn. Roy's gone. Deathstroke's building a mirakuru army. Queen Consolidated's in Deathstroke's hands. What's going to happen with the election (my theory is that Moira Queen doesn't survive the season)? And Amanda Waller and the Suicide Squad are still waiting in the wings (remember Oliver asked her for help with Deathstroke).

Telling Laurel seems inconsequential. If she's been so ignorant to it despite it being so obvious up to this point then why should she believe a creepy abductor who's wanted by the cops? Emo Roy is getting pretty annoying and I hope he gets a costume soon because he looks ridiculous in his jeans and hoodie next to Arrow and Canary ROFL

They actually did a smart thing with Sara the first time Laurel saw her as Black Canary: when they were on the floor behind the desk, Sara's hair was hanging down over her face the whole time.

Always appreciate small gestures like that, help to suspend disbelief just a little bit more, as unrealistic as the situation may be. Ditto for the voice modulator.

It made perfect sense, as soon as I saw the blurry kneeling figure as Oliver's vision began to clear it was was like oh shit, Slade's doing the island choice with his mom and sister. And there was no way Thea was going to die. But still, damn.

They did a great job with that, didn't telegraph it at all (showing Blood pissed-off was a nice touch), made it look like things were going to start getting better then bam. Mom's dead.

I assume when Sara said she was going to go see an old friend she meant Slade, guess we'll see how that plays out. Maybe she's Ravager's first kill or something. And I assume Slade was talking about her (Sara) when he said he had one more person to kill.

I've thought part of the reason for the mirakuru cure was so Oliver could save Slade in the end. Don't see that happening now. Maybe they do something goofy like Sara convincing him not to do it as she dies.

(Yes, I still assume she dies, Laurel has to get into the Black Canary costume somehow - although I expect that to be a slow process).
