Well, she was bitchy and robotic. I count two talents.

She hasn't really mastered "bitchy", yet.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

I enjoyed the second season opener quite a bit. Summer Glau was a weak point. I wish they had gone with someone else, and perhaps had Summer come in as a hero or another character. Where is Cassidy Freeman when they needed her?

Anyway, my only other regret is that the Hoods weren't wearing red hoods.

Well, I know that Summer can do more.
So it might be that she got typecast and directed the way she acted in this episode. Based on stuff like Terminator and all...

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Second origin story!

One serious character problem, which is that Benson isn't going to rescue Oliver while ditching his wife. If he can't accept that Moira was under duress yet still saved his ass death by accepting his kidnapping, he's not going to be so understanding and committed he'll do favors for the surly and remote stepson he barely ever saw.

Summer Glau doesn't get good roles, so her acting abilities are pretty much unknown. I'd err on the side of generosity myself.

How does Susanna Thompson makes a prison jumpsuit look so good? It's got to be tailored!

Well Manu Bennett is a regular now so that storyline will continue, but I'm wondering how long they can stretch it out.
I'd say.. let's see, divide by 6, carry the 2.... About 5 years.

(^ LOVED Stingray when I was a kid.)

I thought the opening ep was a cracker. Everything seemed just so much sharper.

My only worry: Summer Glau. Any show she's in doesn't go the distance.

I'm thinking since she is just joining the cast as a guest star... the show is safe.

She appeared once on Big Bang Theory and it has survived.

She was playing herself on BBT and I thought a different actress could have done a better job.

I enjoyed the premier. Can't really think of any specific comments ATM.
