And it was an episode that did not disappoint. Our Fangirlish writers Alyssa, Lizzie, Nora, and Charles are breaking downRead More →

Arrow can be smart. Don’t let them fool you otherwise. While Arrow has acted the opposite of smart for the majority of its fifth season, it’s shown that it is capable of delivering on the aspects that work. This season has been an example of trying and failing when tryingRead More →

Last Wednesday’s episode of Arrow served as the prologue for this Wednesday’s episode. But it was “Dangerous Liaisons” that reminded us that Arrow can be great when it remembers to focus on what makes it great.

As Arrow enjoys its final hiatus this season, the attention shifts to the final five episodes of what’s been a controversial fifth season.

The episode, titled “Dangerous Liaisons,” features Felicity and Helix against Oliver and Team Arrow as both set their sights on capturing Adrian Chase. While both Felicity and Oliver have a common goal, they’re bothRead More →

I’m not going to sugarcoat it. Arrow hasn’t been great this season. It hasn’t even been good. For the longest time it felt like it was a lost puppy trying to find its way home. And it finally has. Following what had been one of season five’s strongest episodes toRead More →

Last Wednesday’s Arrow might’ve been heavy on the past with a slew of flashbacks, but it was all about the present and the future in “Kapiushon.” Our Fangirlish writers Alyssa, Lizzie, Nora, and Sarah are breaking down this week’s Arrow, which has us obsessing over Stephen Amell and Josh Segarra’s epic performances,Read More →

Perhaps the most difficult thing that anyone can do in life is admitting that they’re wrong. Even when they know they’re wrong; even when they know that people know they’re wrong. It might sound like the simplest thing in the world, but it’s never easy owning up to a screw-up.Read More →

As a prelude to my latest Arrow review, I shall warn thee that this review will be a roasting. In an episode aptly titled, “Fighting Fire With Fire,” there was an overarching theme about what happens when you play with dangerous things. If you mess with fire, you’re most likelyRead More →

Well, that was surprisingly not terrible. Especially given what it looked like Arrow was setting up. But that doesn’t mean it was good either. When a show that has generally been known for its smarts – at least in the previous seasons – suddenly loses that intelligence it’s not onlyRead More →

I’ve grown accustomed to the core elements of Arrow – which have brought it to its current fifth season – being pushed to the side in favor of this “new look Arrow.” I’ve grown accustomed to tuning into Arrow only to find a completely different series than I’ve been watchingRead More →

Our Fangirlish writers Alyssa, Lizzie, Lyra, Nora, and Sarah are breaking down this week’s Arrow, which has us all still feeling cautiouslyRead More →

Arrow’s prevailing theme in its episode titled “Second Chances” was all about giving people another chance to redeem themselves where they’ve gone wrong. I mean as far as hitting episodic themes and proverbial themes on the head, this episode definitely did that. This season hasn’t been a smooth ride toRead More →

After a month hiatus that left fans grappling with the implications of Arrow‘s midseason finale, Arrow returned with a winter premiere that showed progress and felt promising.
