CW's "ARROW"
« on: October 11, 2012, 03:29:53 pm »
So I watched the season premiere of Arrow and I really liked it.
I watched it on accident. I didn't even know it was about to come on.
The Family Feud went off and lo & behold, Arrow comes on. I thought it was a preview or something until I realized it was the show.
I'll be tuned in next week.  This is a good show to be tagged up with Supernatural.
Thanks to Arrow, which had the best premiere ratings sinces Vampire Diaries, Supernatural had its best ratings in 2 years.


Listen to my entertaining radio show, "The Takeover: Top 20 Countdown" at www.top20takeover.VVCRadio.com.

Right on to the real and death to the fakers!  Peace out!

I just watched it on the CW site. That ish was good as hell! I felt like I was watching a movie. It took me an hour and fifteen minutes to watch a forty minute program because I kept rewinding to absorb the nuances. Especially dug the blonde chicks in fishnets dancing at his welcome home party. It was a nice little nod to Black Canary whom I didn't realize would be a co-star. I'm all in.

Anyone else watch the second season premiere?

I thought it was pretty good. I think they've put a lot more money into the show. The production values looked much better. I'm looking forward to seeing where Season 2 goes.

I think Bronze Tiger is on next week.

Loved.  Continues to get better.

Though did Thea suddenly jump in age?  I didn't think she was old enough to be living on her own.  Thought she was more the 16 year turning 17 rather than 17 turning 18.

Only problem with this bronze tiger other than the lack of costumes,  is that with those claws,  he looks like a poor man's Wolverine.

Regarding Thea, I think she had just turned 18 last season. I might be wrong but I thought there had been some college talk on the show regarding her future at one point.

As for the Bronze Tiger episode I thought it was just okay. I wish Ben Turner had gotten more development. I enjoyed Alderman Blood more than anything, as well as the cliffhanger ending, and the interaction among Oliver, Diggle, and Felicity. Plus Felicity was rocking the heck out of dresses.

You can say that again!  I always thought she was cute but she really stepped it up this episode!

Felicity is still looking good in this new episode, though she always looks odd when she isn't wearing glasses. She's a woman that looks much better bespectacled.

As for the episode, they found a neat way out of the cliffhanger and the entire episode was an improvement over last week. They took a newer character I didn't care for in the comics, Dollmaker, and made him creepy and work within the Arrow framework. And the end, with the hint of a much bigger bad to come, was just great. As was the tie of Black Canary to that greater evil.

I know it doesn't get as much press being on the CW and not being connected to the Avengers movie, but I find myself enjoying Arrow much more than Agents of SHIELD each week.

I agree. I liked Arrow right out the gate. SHIELD is limping along. It is improving but it isn't as good as Arrow was at this stage in season one. And season two of Arrow has started off strong.

Why is TV GA (Smallville and Arrow) better than the comic versions?

Quick question to anyone that may know:

Is 'Arrow' a spin-off show from 'Smallville'?

No its not.

Its a different actor playing G.A.  in Smallville (Justin Hartley). Stephen Arnell plays Arrow on the show now.

The backstory is completely different except for the "learned archery while shipwrecked" origin.
