Re: Arrow - Season 2

I checked out the premiere yesterday. I liked it a lot. The picture looks crisper, the sets look newer or at least better, particularly the island scenes. I think they've put more money into this season. I'm liking the direction they are taking Oliver so far.

The Bethany Snow reference was cool. Despite the success of Man of Steel it just feels like Arrow is at the forefront of pushing/promoting more of the DC universe right now in live-action media.

I wonder what happens when you cross a particle accelerator with Felicity's stepson?

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Just had a weird thought.
In the first season Olli was basically Kick-Ass who now started a whole trend of costumed vigilante crime fighters... Just like Kick-Ass did in Part 2.

Wrong universe. The DCWU 2.0's Felicity doesn't have a stepson or a husband for that matter. I can't imagine the resulting firestorm if she did.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Just because we're in the past, it doesn't mean we're in the absolutely wrong universe for that to happen.

Anything could happen in Season 8.

The show evolves so quickly that I wonder what an 8th season would look like.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Ollie will become a homeless hippie liberal who travels the country in an old pickup with his best buddy who's a cop.

-Ollie being assigned Justice League missions

-Roy having a drug problem

-More DC heroes

-Cast members aside from Stephen are all new.

-Arrow cycle, Arrow Jet, Arrow car and arrow cave

Then you wonder how this show deviated so much from the first few seasons *COUGH*Smallville*COUGH

I look forward to the season seven battle with Hawkman and the 25 year flash forwards that show Ollie with one arm.

During the period you're talking about, Hal although technically still a space-cop, made his bread and butter selling children's toys door to door.

It's no wonder he went mad and destroyed the Universe.

Didn't also try his hand at selling insurance? From jet jockey to salesman. Who thought that was a good idea?

Re: Arrow - Season 2

I remember Ollie feeling pity almost bordering on contempt for how far his friend had fallen and the denial that allowed him to subsist there... Although I'm also sure that Hal took most of his lonely desperate housewife customers off to the master bedroom for some lengthy exertion, which accounts truthfully that it was the toy between his legs that Jordan was really selling door to door.

(Yes, I'm rolling my eyes too, but I'm also not making this up.)

Re: Arrow - Season 2

I watched it last night and really enjoyed it. I think most of the changes are great. The flipping of support for the Hood between Detective Lance and Laurel is interesting.

My only nitpick is the graveyard scene. Who the hell goes to a cemetery dressed like that? Laurel's dress was bright enough to wake the dead. Ollie was there in sensible everyday clothes and Laurel looks like she was getting ready to be a an escort for the evening.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Summer Glau's truly robotic performance aside (honestly I don't know how she keeps getting work, she's an awful actress with a limited range) this was a great opener. I can't believe I'm watching the CW. DC gets the right people to run their shows. Truly excited and interested for this season.

Yes, Summer Glau doesn't exactly give a riveting performance, does she?
