Arrow Episode 1.15 Review — Dodging Bullets

Arrow Episode 1.15 Review -- Dodging Bullets

Arrow Episode 1.15 Review — Dodging Bullets Though my last review may indicate otherwise, it actually takes very little to please me. Case in point, this episode of Arrow opened with a shiny, red gem. And, I was pleased. I’ve always been a sucker for a good caper, so my hopes were high (though, not astronomical, given my disappointment with the previous episode) going into “Dodger.” Thankfully, the show made […]

Arrow – The Season (So Far!) In Review

Arrow – The Season (So Far!) In Review

Arrow – The Season (So Far!) In Review Uneven. Epic. Mind-blowing. Mind-numbingly bad. Conflicting descriptors, for certain, but also applicable to the front half of Arrow’s inaugural season. Some would argue that the ratings speak for themselves. Arrow is one of the CW’s strongest performers. Others would say that it’s a pale imitation of its previous incarnations and wonder where Justin Hartley is. Then, there are those in the middle, […]

Arrow Episode #1.14 Review — Friends In High Places (Plus! Bonus Season Overview!)

Arrow Episode #1.14 Review -- Friends In High Places (Plus! Bonus Season Overview!)

Arrow Episode #1.14 Review — Friends In High Places (Plus! Bonus Season Overview!) By virtue of catering to the tween crowd, watching programs on the CW tends to make me have flashbacks to my traumatic high school days. Never has it been more painful than tonight, when episode 14, The Odyssey, sent me right back to school. Homer. Sophomore year. Daily writing assignments. I remember nothing about The Odyssey except […]

Arrow Episode 1.13 Review — Bewitched, Bothered and Betrayed

Arrow Episode 1.13 Review -- Bewitched, Bothered and Betrayed

took a mini-vacation this week and, upon arriving safe and sound at home today, I have returned with three bits of wisdom to impart on the readers of these reviews. #1  — If you allow squirrels to eat at your birdfeeders and go on a three-day vacation without giving them express notice that no one will be home to fill up the feeders with yummy seeds-n-berries bird food, be prepared […]

Arrow Episode 1.12 – Vertigo – Review – Give Hugs, Not Drugs!

Arrow Episode 1.12 - Vertigo - Review - Give Hugs, Not Drugs!

Arrow Episode 1.12 – Vertigo – Review – Give Hugs, Not Drugs!  When I was a little girl, my favorite character was always the Count. Yeah, the other kids in daycare might have been all about Elmo or that cranky guy who lives in garbage cans, but not me. I loved that OCD vampire. So, you can imagine how excited I was to read that Oliver would be squaring off […]

Arrow Episode 1.11 – Trust But Verify Review – Diggle, You Are The Wind Beneath My Wings

Arrow Episode 1.11 - Trust But Verify Review - Diggle, You Are The Wind Beneath My Wings

Arrow Episode 1.11 – Trust But Verify Review – Diggle, You Are The Wind Beneath My Wings M., an epic battle launched between two divas on Fox’s American Idol. And, while everyone from the Talk to TMZ has weighed in on the feud between Nicki Minaj of the pink hair and Mariah Carey of the zillion-octave range, I believe the more compelling battles were waged on the CW. While Arrow’s […]

Arrow Episode 1.10 Review — How Arrow Got His Groove Back

Arrow Episode 1.10 Review -- How Arrow Got His Groove Back

  They say absence makes the heart grow fonder, and the winter hiatus for Arrow proves the old adage true. Not only did I find my Wednesdays sorely lacking (Britney’s hilarious faces on X-Factor notwithstanding), the presence of a true blue hero on television has been missing as well. Tonight, Arrow took one step closer to becoming just that – a hero. Motivated by a genuine need to help rather […]

Arrow Season 1.09  - Year's End - Review – The Grinch Who Stole Walter

Arrow – season 1.09 – Year’s End Review   It’s that time of year again, where stockings are hung from fireplace mantles and trees are decorated with shiny, far too fragile ornaments and desperate parents plunge further into credit card debt to put a smile on their children’s faces. For most mall Santas, it means trying to stay awake while those little darlings drone on and on about what they […]
