Re: Green Arrow (CW)

If I'm a shallow person, does that mean my inner smartass is on the outside?

Well, either way, my inner smartass says "The Hood" is at least as dumb as "Green Arrow," especially since the guy's just wearing a muindane hoodie. You'd think people would focus on the rather exotic bow and arrow set, wouldn't you? And since the arrows now come in green and black, that the color would be a handy adjectivie in talking about these guys, no? Thinking an inappropriate nickname is somehow cooler just seems excessively fanboyish to me.

To my mind, it's a splendid example of the writers imposing an idea (a supposedly cooler name, in this case) on the characters instead of writing character specific (aka real) dialogue. Like all the SG-1 characters always said "false gods," as if there were real ones.

Some real people would have interpreted Queen's campaign against the wealthy as terrorism, and call hoodie a terrorist. But the writers seem to have avoided this.

^ But they have set up the whole Green and Black arrow thing which could be picked up on by the press at some point. Also if and when Ollie stops killing people The Hood will not be such a great name to have and one he may want to distance himself from. When he becomes a hero and not a vigilante Green Arrow will be far more appropriate.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

^^^This is all true. But many people will still think "Green Arrow" is dumb, nerdy, dorky, etc. The title of the show is Arrow, so I guess that tells us which camp the producers are in. In a way, it's kind of minor, and lots of stuff about the series are done about as well as can be hoped for.

Isn't the show like later Dexter, committed to the glory of vigilantism?

^ Not really, Dexter's a psychopath that has a need to kill. The only reason he's only killing bad guys is because that's what his father taught him. The show doesn't pretend that Dexter is a vigilante trying to keep murderers and rapists off the streets. That's just a byproduct of Dexter's need to kill.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

^^^The show may acknowledge that Dexter is not motivated as a vigilante but it is exactly what the show uses to excuse our (supposed) pleasure in Dexter's murders.
This pleasure is why the ever more slipshod plotting of the murders, or the numerous people who somehow have no real problem with his hobby are so acceptable. The whole point is that Dexter is killing bad guys and we are supposed to hurrah.

(In the first seasons, the real charm was in Dexter's private life, as he was a good hearted doofus valiantly trying to cope with his social relationships. And we cared (some of us anyhow) because that good heart conflicted with his Daddy-taught homicidal mania and we wondered what could happen when he finally went sane. All these elements were decisively rejected with Rita's murder.)

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

They've announced that they're using the Arrow version of Green Arrow, with Stephen Amell's voice and likeness in the new DC Comics superhero fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us.

Well I felt this episode was pretty blah even the stuff on the island really was not interesting. Liked the mention of coast city and the Huntress is always pleasing on the eyes. The stuff with Roy was probably the best thing this week.

I liked the line about Huntress looking like the T-Mobile girl.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

Last night's episode did not do much for me either. I was very tired when I started watching it on DVR, so its not really the shows fault, but I actually fell asleep and had to rewind it. Its was mostly a setdown in quality from the previous one which was fantastic.

I wonder if Deathstroke could be major adversary next season.

Yeah, it definitely wasn't one of their best episodes, but I didn't think it was that bad.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

They outed the Huntress pretty quickly. The show continues to do a lot of big developments and reveals fairly early on.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

I liked this episode. Up until this Ep I thought that Huntress was simply eye candy. Seriously, no one thought "OMG" when she told the cops that Ollie was The Hood?

As soon as I heard that, I figured that they'd immediately dismiss or debunk it. They have reason to. Took me a little bit to realize that she was just playing with them by deflecting.
