Re: Green Arrow (CW)

Finally saw it - well, the first 20 minutes. It was so god-awful I had to turn it off. The writing is piss-poor and the line readings atrocious across the board, but especially from the lead. What a shame. I really wanted to like this.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

more for me then.

you don't say that this is much much worse than Doctor Who, you say that it is much much better than Smallville.

Oh lord!

The stock plot has been shattered! they need a new paradigm to hang their weekly adventures off already!

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

I think the only thing I really don't like about this show is the drab washed out color scheme. I wish it looked a little more vibrant or had some life to it.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

Then we can have my best dream ever come true... Adam West staring in the Dark Knight returns.

Arrow's producer's chose noir over camp, but that doesn't mean that 40 years ago everything wasn't super camp as Batman man saved the day.

Noir meets camp.

WORLDS COLLIDE!

Besides, that would mean Xombie puppet Reagan with luther's hand up his ass telling Superman to rip Olivers Arm off if he won't retire and let the the world become dreadfully ordinary.

Can't you imagine Welling ripping this new kid's arm off because he won't get with the program? Or would it be more realistic, and affordable to link theis new series with the Superboy (live action) TV Series than Smallville?

(Dark Knight returns, it's been in your public library for the last 25 years. 60 year old Bruce Wayne comes out of retirement... They made a cartoon movie of it recently if you're too good for comic books.)

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

About the final ten minutes or less saved this episode. I was wondering where they were going with all of it at first, but I have to admit that it came together nicely and I'm looking forward to seeing how Oliver gets out of this pickle next week. I also hope Dig eventually takes the name Arsenal.

Just watched the pilot on the CW website. It's much better than I thought it would be, but I don't care for the 20 something rich kids entitlement bullshit. I'll keep watching.

It wasn't footage from the prison break in, but the shooting attempt from the previous week.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

I thought this episode was pretty good. I enjoyed Dig's and Oliver's step-dad's side plots, and thought Oliver's case was pretty interesting. I did not expect either of the endings, and I am very curious where they are taking things.

As a comics fan, I like the name drops: Iron Heights, Bludhaven, Monument Point. The last from Guggenheim's JSA run.

Well, your first point could lead to some significant long term changes to the format of the series, unless everything gets resolved next episode.
