We are back, for the last time. It seems incredible that 8 years ago we started a journey that ends here today, with “The Last Bow.” It seems like yesterday … but the journey ends here with an emotional and satisfying ending, that gives us everything we wanted… although notRead More →

Even John Diggle wasn’t enough to save this episode for me. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s the end of the season, and I’ve had to put up with a lot on this show this year. Maybe it’s the fact that this is an episode I should’ve gotten back inRead More →

Perhaps the most frustrating thing about Arrow is that is has all the potential in the world only to, usually, waste it. So much so that Arrow has become a watch-later show as I’m always expecting some sort of disappointment. But then sometimes, there are episodes like “Star City Slayer”Read More →

As long as Arrow wants to focus on the past — by bringing in Emiko Queen and reviving the Suicide Squad, sorry “Ghost Initiative” — let’s talk about the past. I remember when I used to look forward to Arrow. Live Arrow. On Wednesdays. If you ask me, the shiftRead More →

Arrow’s “mid-season” finale did everything it needed to do heading into its winter hiatus. Which is weird, given that the crossover event is next week. But on the strictly Arrow front, we’re done until January. Oliver returned home from Slabside to a life that was the same but yet notRead More →

Do you guys see that? There in the distance? It looks like a light. Like a light at the end of the tunnel that involves Oliver imprisonment and subsequent separation from his family.

There’s a different vibe in this seventh season of Arrow. There’s this sense of hope and optimism that this season can almost consistently provide satisfaction. There’s this feeling that this change is showrunner is the exact change that this show needed to become relevant again. We’re two episodes into Arrow’sRead More →

Arrow is like the weather. One day it’s sunny skies and breezy, the next it’s either sweltering hot or storming like the apocalypse. You never really know what to expect. Though I blame that on the current (now past) showrunners. Their tenure has been marred with inconsistency and frustration thatRead More →

I’m a woman torn. I’m a woman torn between a show that, most of the time, infuriates her to no degree but can, occasionally, manage to do something right and remind her of the show she fell in love with years back. Welcome to my weekly viewing of Arrow seasonRead More →
