Today is the day, family! Arrow has finished filming forever and, although there are still episodes left, depression has come in a wave. We haven’t yet recovered from the tears of last night. We’re trying to deal in the best way possible: watching videos about the show on YouTube. ButRead 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 →

When Arrow delivers episodes that manage tell compelling stories that thrill and excite and provide hope for stability on this show, episodes like “Star City 2040,” my instant reaction is to embrace it. But then logic kicks in, and I’m reminded of all of the times that Arrow has screwedRead 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 →

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. We’re almost there. For five episodes where Oliver has been separated from everyone meaningful in his life,Read More →

Is the Arrowverse better for its vigilantes? That’s a question that Arrow seems to be exploring this season as we continue to explore this debate between the need for vigilantes and how vigilantes are hurting the system. Vigilantes are vigilantes because they do what law enforcement cannot: They take risks,Read More →

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 →

Since every tease of Arrow’s season 7 premiere used the same two words, I’d like to start my review the same way: HOLY. SHIT. That is how you do a season premiere. There was action, emotion, suspense, intrigue, good writing, great acting, and a genuine sense of respect. Much likeRead More →
