Arrow Episode 1.23 Review — In My Time Of Dying

Arrow Episode 1.23 Review -- In My Time Of Dying

Arrow Episode 1.23 Review I thought I would be angrier when I wrote this. I’ve made no secret of how much I love Tommy throughout the season, so I thought when he died at the end of the season finale, I would be overcome with rage and grief, that this review would be peppered with obscenities and rambling diatribes on the new level of suck this show has discovered. Instead, […]

Arrow Episode 1.22 Review — The Triangle That Ate Starling City

Arrow Episode 1.22 Review -- The Triangle That Ate Starling City

Arrow Episode 1.22 Review The Not-So-Incredible Journey All season long, I have been harping on writing and structure and allowing relationships, both platonic and romantic, to develop organically. As I feared, the penultimate episode, instead of establishing itself as a springboard into an epic finale, instead felt as if a chef were standing in a kitchen, realized he had only ten minutes until dinner was served, and threw everything he […]

Arrow Episode 1.21 Review — A Tale Of Two Husbands

Arrow Episode 1.21 Review -- A Tale Of Two Husbands

After last week’s episode, I decided that, so long as “The Undertaking” didn’t leave me wanting to jab a sharp object into my eye, it would be a raving success. Imagine my surprise to find the pendulum of quality is back on the upswing. The writers again went the more traditional route of writing with a word processor and not a sledgehammer, there was genuine plot movement and a nice […]

Arrow Episode 1.20 Review — Next Stop, Pickle Relish

Arrow Episode 1.20 Review -- Next Stop, Pickle Relish

 Arrow Episode 1.20 Review — Next Stop, Pickle Relish Hiatuses are beginning to feel like summer vacation. You chill out for a few months, binge on some Nick at Nite until the wee hours of the morning, maybe go to the Grand Canyon with the family. You do something other than sit in a stuffy classroom all day listening to a boring teacher drone on and on about geometry proofs […]

Arrow Episode 1.19 Review — Drugs, Hugs and the Great Divide

Arrow Episode 1.19 Review -- Drugs, Hugs and the Great Divide

Arrow Episode 1.19 Review — Drugs, Hugs and the Great Divide There are a few things you can count on from Arrow. Excellent action scenes, seeing Oliver in leather at least once in the episode and for Tommy Merlyn to have impeccable hair (a trait he obviously inherits from his father). And, though I sometimes ramble in these reviews and occasionally lower myself to embarrassing displays of fangirling, there is […]

Arrow 1.18 – Salvation – Review — Vigilante vs. Vigilante

Arrow 1.18 - Salvation - Review -- Vigilante vs. Vigilante

Arrow 1.18 – Salvation – Review — Vigilante vs. Vigilante As a person who has more than her fair share of court shows on her DVR (holla, Judge Judy!), I’ll freely admit they’re all lacking a certain something. When I watched this episode of Arrow, I realized what that something is – live executions! Come on, you know Divorce Court would be ten times cooler if Judge Lynn got to […]

Arrow Episode 1.17 Review – Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

Arrow Episode 1.17 Review – Crazy Ex-Girlfriend

 Arrow Episode 1.17 Review I’ll admit that I had to go back and check the credits to be sure this episode wasn’t written by Miranda Lambert. It was chock full of grudges, hurt feelings and psychotic exes. The only thing that was missing was a destroyed truck. Though, I suppose that’s more in the vein of another certain blonde country starlet. Either way, I was entertained. What? I was raised […]

Arrow Episode 1.16 Review -- Back From The Dead...Shot

Arrow Episode 1.16 Review — Back From The Dead…Shot Every gambler has been there. You’ve spent the better part of your day doubling down and all you’ve got to show for it is a nasty hangover and a dollar chip you hope’s going to see you through the night. So, you hit the roulette table, toss the chip down on red and cross your fingers. Wheel spins, ball bounces … […]
