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 […]


The Flash 1×06 ‘The Flash is Born’: Guy of steel

Barry teams up with Eddie Thawn to track down a metahuman with the ability to turn himself into metal. Joe recruits Harrison Wells to uncover the murder of Barry’s mother, but Joe has other plans. Iris, and her sincere likability, finally gets more involved in the central plot. Diego Crespo Diego champions fallen TV shows […]


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 […]


The Flash 1×05 ‘Plastique’: It blew up, dude!

What an insanely likable show. The Flash continues to pit Team Flash against interesting adversaries this week as Plastique and General Eiling make their introductions (and possibly one other villain). Cisco, Caitlin, and Barry discover Barry can’t get drunk and Detective West lets Barry in on a not-so-secret secret. SPOILERS BELOW Diego Crespo Diego champions fallen TV […]


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 […]


The Flash 1×04 ‘Going Rogue’: Cold snaps

The Flash reaches new heights this week with the introduction of Captain Cold and the return of a familiar face from Arrow. So it looks like the weak villains were the only thing really holding this series back from being genuinely great. Because this episode rocked from top to bottom. What continues to amaze is the character […]


Arrow 3×03 ‘Corto Maltese’: Trouble in paradise

While the hunt for a killer leads to multiple dead ends and cold trails, Oliver decides it’s time for Thea to come home to Starling City. Lyla asks Diggle to check on an A.R.G.U.S. agent down in Corto Maltese. Laurel tries her hand at domestic justice. Diego Crespo Diego champions fallen TV shows that never […]


The Flash 1×02 ‘The Fastest Man Alive’: Multiplex

Just as Barry and Team Flash fight a man who can copy and paste himself, ‘The Fastest Man Alive’ copy and pastes Barry questioning himself. Does he truly have what it takes to be a hero? Well, duh. We established that last episode. But it’s nice to see it expanded upon. And this show is […]


The Flash 1×01 ‘City of Heroes’: A running start

As a lifelong fan of The Flash character, you can imagine what a big deal this show is for me. We’ve yet to see a feature length Flash movie but this new series might just be a step in the right direction. Taking place in the same universe as Arrow probably garners a majority of […]

The 100 1×11 ‘The Calm’: There’s a storm brewin’

Excitement abounds in this week’s episode of your favorite post-apocalyptic teen drama.  New characters are introduced (some of them die), bad decisions are made, secrets are hinted at, and the Love Rhomboid of Doom adds another angle.  Also, the Ark is back! Dan Boman is an unabashed media junkie. When not watching or reading something, […]


The 100 1×05 ‘Twilight’s Last Gleaming’: Character development for everyone!

From the beginning, The 100 has been a show with many themes:  survival, necessity, family, and the things we do to protect not only ourselves but those we love.  I previously praised the show for its shades of gray, but with this episode they kicked things up a notch.  With this episode, it became a […]

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 […]

Hart of Dixie 3×01 ‘Who Says You Can’t Go Home’: Everything seems to magically fall into place…

The episode starts with Zoe dreaming about a parade in Bluebell, obviously because she misses it. She wakes up taking a nap in a New York City ER. She has been living in New York City again for 5 months trying to leave her life in Bluebell behind. While working at the hospital, she is […]
