Arrow 3×09 ‘The Climb’: Season 3 gains momentum

There are no easy ways to say this but each week I found myself a little less excited for Arrow than Flash. Maybe it’s just because I’ve always been such a big fan of the character (Wally West 4 life) or perhaps because I haven’t been completely on board with the mystery of the season. Looking back, the […]


Arrow 3×08 ‘The Brave and the Bold’: Part 2

In tradition with every great superhero crossover, after Barry and Oliver duked it out in the previous episode, Oliver teams up with Barry to stop an assassin using boomerangs to unleash vengeance upon ARGUS. The title ‘The Brave and the Bold’ is a callback to the early crossovers of DC comics. And this was one […]

Arrow 3×07 ‘Draw Back Your Bow’: Cupid, stupid

This was not a great episode of Arrow. There’s no way around that. But dang, was it entertaining. Cupid isn’t necessarily a deep character, she’s just obsessed with Green Arrow. Her plan to get his attention with the murders of criminals and posturing them with the same outfit that Oliver is wearing. It was a weird […]


Arrow 3×06 ‘Guilty’: Wildcats!

You know what I love about Arrow? The show has well staged action set pieces but my favorite thing about all of this is the character work. I like watching these characters get to know each other better. I like Team Arrow gathering new allies. I like spending time in Starling City with these people. And […]


Arrow 3×04 ‘The Magician’: Ra’s Al Who?

First off, Happy 50th episode to the cast and crew of Arrow. The show has grown into must-watch television with characters I enjoy seeing together. And they learned how to use villains effectively. Every main villain for each season has survived up to this point and now I want to see them all interact at some […]

Arrow 2×03 ‘Broken Dolls’: No more playing around.

Arrow is on a serious roll right now, and I have to say I am pleasantly surprised. The seeds were always there in the first season, which justified staying with the show, but just three episodes into its second season and those seeds are bearing major fruit. It really feels like they’ve figured out how to […]

Arrow 2×02 ‘Identity’: Who Do You Think You Are?

Identity was an episode all about the characters establishing what they’re going to be about this season. Instead of being all about Oliver, we actually got moments for Diggle, Felicity, Roy, Thea, Laurel, Slade, and even the new guy, Sebastian Blood. This left little time for a whole lot of action, but when it’s sacrificed in […]

Arrow 2×01 ‘City of Heroes’: Back for the first time.

As the days ticked down to its premiere, I found myself getting really excited about Arrow‘s return. While it had an uneven first season, I thought that by the season finale the creators had put some nice pieces into place for the next year of story lines. Completely leveling a portion of the city, having the […]
