Yeah, they're totally moving away from the Robin Hood VS the 1% thing in favour of the generic villain of the week bullshit.

Probably makes TW/WB executives uncomfortable seeing their own species being hunted. But you are absolutely right. The core of the character has always been his self-righteousness crossing into hypocrisy that he'll fight the Man if everyone is Right and he is Wrong.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

Is it just me or does the actress who plays Thea have a lisp? I noticed last week and it seemed even more pronounced in this one. I'm not trying to be mean or anything, it was just something I noticed.
As for the episode, I loved it. I thought Seth Gabel's Count was great.

The Count was so good I wish there had been more of him in this episode. Overall another good outing. How long before Ollie figures out the CI is Diggs?

I noticed it several episodes ago. I didn't want to mention it first so thanks.

Last weeks villain was in the book and wasnt a 1%.
Yeah, that didn't make much sense. The guy was small-time compared to others on that list.
We the audience have assumed the book was a list of bad 1%ers just like the rich folk in Starling City have assumed the Hood was Robin Hood taking down people because they are rich but neither assumption is true. There is something else going on. We just don't know what it is yet.

Guess I am in the minority as I never thought the book was just filled with 1% but merely with the people who were going to hurt Starling City.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

Another good episode. I really liked The Count and Ollie's old cop friend. I hope they both return soon. I also like Ollie's reverse Vulcan neck pinch.

I thought it was a bit fortunate that Digg knew how to cure the effects of Vertigo.

Ollie's bs stories to computer girl (Felicity?) always make me laugh. "I have a friend who is doing some crazy scheme but I don't trust them so can you analyse this..."

I did have to laugh when Corporate IT has access to a spectrometer.

What DOES Queen Industries do anyway?

Direct competition with Wayne Industries, obviously.

OK, but if there's an "evil scheme", a conspiracy (whatever you wanna call it), then it's probably run by powerful people (like Merlin), and there was absolutely nothing in that episode that suggested that Ben Browder's crew was involved in something bigger than straight-up stickup jobs.

Oliver himself once said that his mission is curing the disease, not dealing with mere symptoms (like armed robbers).

I see Arrow has now caught the Microsoft Surface product placement disease.

Thats what I think, too. bowder's character was in there, and he wasn't rich. I liked yesterday's episode.I like seeing Oliver take on crime. The book is interesting, but constantly fighting 1% people (who don't actually fight him, since being rich they don't have fighting skills, they have goons) would get boring.

The ending of the episode was great, with Ollie finding out that
