Re: Arrow - Season 2

The episode was good, but could've been better if two things had happened:
1) The pacing was better. It felt like we needed to get way more information in it - especially in the flashbacks - than we did, and things consequently felt 'off'
2) The President of The CW Network hadn't moronically given away the 'Sarah Lance is Black Canary' secret months ago

I'm not really buying Summer Glau as Ms. Rochev right now, which is disappointing because Summer's a fantastic actress.

The Brother Blood thing was also kind of obvious, but they still managed to make it work, and we'll see where it goes.

Yes, she's great at playing emotionally devoid characters.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

The last episode is pretty good, but Glau's character is horrible. I hate her type of character anyway, the person brought in just to annoy the hero, cause trouble and just generally be an a-hole. While I think Glau is a good actress, the character is nothing but annoying and I kind of hope she goes away very violently before too long. I also didn't like seeing more of the punk women who is stupidly called Sin, so maybe Glau's character and her can end up killing each other. Maybe have them fight and fall over a waterfall. Or just have them get hit my cars. If I only get one death, I want Glau's character, but I won't be sorry whenever Sin goes away (I doubt she becomes a main cast member).

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Kirk55555, if they hadn't called the character Sin, would you still hate her? If not, I think there is a flaw in your logic. Of course, this is similar territory for you in other threads. Resistance to change.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

If they hadn't called her Sin, she would still be annoying. Honestly, I don't care if she dies, she's not that bad. I just don't want her on my TV. Arrow actually usually does well when it comes to changes, they just happened to have an idiotic character with a completely inappropriate name.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Great episode. Even the filler parts of the episodes are really good.
So I guess we have met the big bad of this season, right?

I am not too familiar with Brother Blood. When I saw the mask I thought he was Scarecrow at first.

Can anyone explain?

How is she annoying? It's not like she's had a lot of screen time to be annoying, or done anything to the established characters. Is it how she led Roy on a chase? Did her running annoy you?

Glad I didn't pay a whole lot of attention to summertime announcements then. And even so, they didn't exactly try to hide it - this is... what, her third episode, second of any significance, and they quickly dispensed with the secret after dropping pretty strong hints - well, for Ollie and the audience, at least.

Wouldnt it be cool if it was revealed that Sebastion Blood had a Uncle named Jason and that way we introduce the Demon Etrigan into this show? Ah well I can think about it any way.

Every time she talked she was annoying, like her scene in the hospital with Roy and her scenes talking with BC. Basically, if sound was coming out of her mouth, she was annoying me.

Inappropriate in the same way that introducing a 80 year old woman, making her a geriatric, elderly assassin and calling her Lady Shiva would be. By inappropriate, I'm talking about pointlessly using a name from the comics in a way that makes absolutely no sense, even more so than the stupid version of Count verttigo.
