Re: Arrow - Season 2

Well, Batman was using everyone's cellphones. Felicity is most likely using security cameras. Not quite the same level of invasion there.

Agree about the Flash...

The Green Arrow/Green Lantern books of yore were famous for their liberal/conservative contrasting viewpoints.

That might play very well today, but it'd have to be done right.

For one thing, you'd have to bring the right subtlety into the story, without bonking the audience over the head with it.

And you'd have to figure out a way to do special effects for GL in a non-suck/non-cheesy way, without breaking the bank.

I'm not sure which would be tougher.

Episode #2.15 is called “The Promise” and it is written by Jake (no relation to Cara) Coburn and Ben Sokolowski, and directing it is fan favorite awesome director Glen Winter.
Seems like it might be an important EP. How many EPs of ARROW were filler? I don't think any of them were last year. Guess all EPs are important.

I'd love to see Green Lantern on the show. But I agree, it would be hard to do the SFX right on a tv budget.

^Apparently it was too hard to do it even on a triple-A movie budget. Just got around to watching that the other week...yikes!

You think so? Personally, I thought they were bloody awful. The mask and costume alone...I just can't believe someone looked at that and thought it was a good idea.

The mask and costume weren't great, but the ring effects were fine.

I didn't think the costume was bad at all. It looked the way it was supposed to look. Like this weird construct made of light.

I thought the effects overall were pretty good. Some of the designs might not have been great, but the actual execution of the effects was good.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

I wonder if they'll move Felicity to the new Flash series.

And Ollie could use a cool new superhero's motorcycle.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

That is a cool motorcycle.

This episode was actually kind of meh, but hey it had a tough couple of episode to follow up on. And hey, has it been 5 weeks in universe? Not sure they made that clear enough.

"DC-52" to all units!

The mirakuru/island subplot doesn't really appeal to me that much. I'm starting to get bored of it. I wonder at which point they're going to stop doing island flashbacks.

Otherwise, not a bad episode. The Shrapnel villain seemed to have come out of nowhere. At least everyone else had something to do. Super Roy discovered his newfound abilities. Laurel did some research on Sebastian Blood's background.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Oh, was it me or did Slade have a different haircut from when we last saw him (not counting his burnt look)? It just seemed jarringly different and for a few seconds I thought they had switched actors.
