Arrow Season 1.08 – Vendetta – Review – Superhero Rehab

Arrow Season 1.08 - Vendetta -  Review - Superhero Rehab

  I’m going to assume one of two things to be true – either Oliver binged on marathons of Celebrity Rehab repeats on VH1 after being rescued from the island, or the spirit of Dr. Drew himself inhabited Oliver for tonight’s episode. He vowed to help heal Helena and mold her into a justice-seeking vigilante in his own image. Truthfully, I think he had the easier job. I’d take six […]

Arrow Season 1.07 Review — The Heart is a Lonely Huntress

Arrow Season 1.07 Review -- The Heart is a Lonely Huntress

  Every hit series has that breakout episode where those who have been following it decide, “Okay, I’m officially invested.” For me, Arrow’s seventh episode, “Muse of Fire,” was that episode. As the series started, I was very excited. But, that excitement waned somewhat in the middle of the run thus far. Whatever it was about tonight’s episode – the introduction of the Huntress, the character development for my beloved […]

Arrow Season 1.06 – Legacies – Review/Recap – Father Knows Heist

Arrow Season 1.06 - Legacies - Review/Recap - Father Knows Heist

  Ah, continuity. My old friend, how I’ve missed you. Perhaps you would like to stay a while, have a nice glass of chocolate milk (it’s an excellent vintage, if I do say so myself), and discuss “Legacies,” the latest episode of Arrow? Hanging with the Royal Flush Gang   Bank robberies are a staple of superhero shows and movies, and Arrow joined the league tonight when the Royal Flush […]

Arrow Season 1.05 “Damaged” — Law and Order: Special Vigilantes Unit

Arrow Season 1.05 "Damaged" -- Law and Order: Special Vigilantes Unit

  On Tuesday night, around 11:30 PM EST, CNN announced that Mitt Romney had lost the general election for President of the United States. Thus, Big Bird had earned a reprieve from certain death. So, I guess Arrow, in anticipating this turn, decided to pardon all fowl and pick on bunnies instead. A former vengeance demon otherwise known as Anya Christina Emmanuella Jenkins would have gleefully embraced this development and […]

Arrow 1.04 — Oliver Gone Wild: Caught On Tape

Arrow 1.04 -- Oliver Gone Wild: Caught On Tape

  Before we begin the review of episode 1.04, “An Innocent Man,” I would like to have a moment of silence for the dearly departed birdie. We hardly knew you. At least Oliver killed you quickly. ‘Tis a far more dignified death than the one Big Bird is potentially facing come November 6th. And, since you went to feed a superhero, I’m sure you’ll be reincarnated as something cool, like […]

Deadshot Takes Aim on Arrow – Season 1.03 “Lone Gunmen”

Deadshot Takes Aim on Arrow - Season 1.03 "Lone Gunmen"

  They say the truth always comes out and the citizens of Starling City are no exception to this rule. Tonight’s episode of Arrow included secrets being revealed both in Oliver Queen’s public life and his secret life. We met new villains, witnessed the birth of new alliances and welcomed new mysteries. But, perhaps most importantly, we were faced with a conundrum about the mischievous Mrs. Queen. Deadshot In The […]

Arrow 1.02 Review – Of Triads and Triangles

Arrow 1.02 Review - Of Triads and Triangles

  Before we begin, I would like to make a special request of the writers and producers of Arrow. You have an outstanding program on your hands, but I do wish everyone would stop calling our hooded hero “Ollie.” It gives me posttraumatic flashbacks. Conversely, “Oliver” gives me happy flashbacks. Happy reviewers write happy reviews. And, you guys wouldn’t like me when I’m angry…   Wait, wrong superhero. Let’s get […]

Did The Arrow Pilot Hit Its Mark?

Did The Arrow Pilot Hit Its Mark?

  It’s a tale as old as time – boy billionaire goes on a boating excursion with his girlfriend, boy billionaire’s boat goes the way of the Titanic, boy billionaire spends five years on a deserted island, boy billionaire returns to civilization determined to wrest his city from the clutches of baddies. And, so it goes for Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), the superhero universe’s answer to Emily Thorn. Motivated by […]
