There’s no denying that this season of Arrow has been miles above last season, where it felt like Oliver had really been abducted and forced to live a lie by the Dominators. Season 6 has a theme of family, which has lent itself well in terms of parenthood, romance, andRead More →

It’s no secret that I despise New Team Arrow, or New Team Assholes as I affectionately refer to them as. But mostly it’s just Rene and Curtis that seem to be annoying even when they’re not prominently featured in an episode. Dinah, on the other hand, I love. In fact,Read More →

We all watch television for different reasons. Some of us want to be entertained; some of us want a good laugh; and some of us want to feel, whether that’s happiness or sadness or a mixture of both. I’ve always been someone that has invested in television shows, movies, andRead More →

As far as midseason finales go, Arrow’s was easily the least unnerving of the core four Arrowverse shows. In fact, you could say it was damn near enjoyable. Twelve glorious minutes of Oliver and Felicity’s wedding celebration? Oh, most definitely enjoyable On Supergirl, Kara is in a coma after gettingRead More →

You know that old saying of when things are good bad things are sure to follow? Well, that could certainly describe Oliver Queen’s Thanksgiving as our pesky FBI Agent Samandra Watson tried to play Grinch to Oliver’s holiday season. Arrow invited us to a special Thanksgiving hour, aptly titled “Thanksgiving,”Read More →

If there’s anything I dislike on television it’s when shows sometimes forget who their characters are. Where their thoughts, actions, and feelings don’t match the overall character. This was an issue in last week’s episode of Arrow, “Deathstroke Returns,” and it was an issue once again in “Promises Kept.” WhileRead More →

While Arrow’s sixth season has managed to get the show back to its winning formula, its fifth hour has failed this fan. I have to say, any episode that succeeded last week’s incredible hour was bound to be a letdown anyway. “Reversal” was nearly flawless in its storylines, characters, andRead More →

Arrow’s sixth season really feels like the beginning of a new chapter, in more ways than one. There’s a refreshing tone that seems to have covered this series like a warm blanket, as it attempts to embrace the new and pay homage to the old. There’s a fine balance thatRead More →

There’s nothing better than a clean slate. A new season. A fresh start. Where a 3-13 season isn’t necessarily forgotten but pushed aside as optimism for redemption clings to you like a leech. The past is never forgotten, not really. But every season provides a new chance to find successRead More →

Looking back at Arrow’s first season, it was a show I enjoyed but always felt there was something missing. Something that made me care. Something that made me care if I missed an episode. Something that made me care if something happened to these characters. But Original Team Arrow changedRead More →

While Arrow has been a disappointment for the majority of season 5, these last several episodes of the season has shown us that Arrow is still capable of solid storytelling and beautiful character exploration.

Let’s take a look at this week’s DCTV season finale recap: Supergirl, breaks Kara’s heart (and ours) by sending Mon-El away. The Flash, sends Barry away. Arrow, leaves the fates of the entire core cast minus Oliver Queen up in the air after this season literally went out with aRead More →

Arrow has proven that it’s capable of redemption, which has been the case with these last several episodes of season 5, which has felt like the season 5 we were promised. Arrow‘s penultimate episode touched on all of the things we loved: Stephen Amell and Josh Segarra’s dynamic, the riseRead More →

After watching Arrow’s penultimate episode, I feel like I’ve been through a war. An emotional assault that felt so intense yet so good. There was a point where I had to remind myself to breathe because it was so intense. God, I’ve missed Arrow. I don’t what’s in the waterRead More →

Arrow continues to deliver in its revival tour that progressed with “Honor Thy Fathers,” which took a look at the similarities and differences between Oliver Queen and Adrian Chase. It was an episode where Oliver got some real character growth, and an episode where Chase planned his next move that’sRead More →
