Seriously though, it would be a lot more fun if I had someone else to chat with during the live show. It's admittedly a bit strange to be doing a one-man commentary.
Lot of grouches lately, I'd join you but I just haven't been able to get into this show. I tried the last episode after a long spell but it just doesn't click with me.

I also hope that they eventually put China White in a white suit like in the comics; if for nothing else, it would help differentiate her from Black Canary.
When the camera was approaching her from behind, I thought she was Black Canary.

The dumbest thing about this episode was the FEMA trucks bring in medical supplies without the National Guard protecting the shipments. That made zero sense.

Not to mention they were making the deliveries in the middle of the night, as another poster has already pointed out.

Thanks Mr. A! I appreciate the thought, though to be honest, I think from now on I'm just going to DVR the shows I like and watch them later, due to time constraints. Bummer though, you couldn't get into Arrow - I still think it's got potential to go for several more seasons.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

I enjoyed this one overall, but I do have to agree with some of the issues you guys brought up.
Bronze Tiger was definitely kind of pointless. I'm not familiar with his comic book counterpart, but I'm assuming he must be pretty cool since people seemed to be excited to see him on the show.
I do agree Laurel's hatred of The Hood is annoying. I can understand he being upset he wasn't able save Tommy, but given everything that was going on, and everything that he'd done before that I would think she would be a little more understanding.
I read up on the comic book version of Blood, so now I'm very curious to see where they're going with the character.
I thought the cliffhanger was pretty cool. Yeah, we all know he's going to get away, but I thought it was still a great place to end the episode.
I am curious to see what's going on in the Island story.

She's not resentful because he wasn't able to save Tommy, she's resentful because from her perspective, he didn't even *try* and essentially left him to die to pursue his own personal vendetta.

In one fell swoop she's lost someone very close to her and was betrayed by her own personal hero. It's not at all surprising that she's in a vengeful mood.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Just caught up with the first couple of episodes. Really enjoyed them. I like the direction of the show and how GA is toning down his violence, I'm also liking the follow-up to the tragedy in the Glades. It's only two episodes in, but I'm a bit disappointed that Thea has so far been relegated to 'worried girlfriend'. Hopefully she'll get more to do soon.

What made even less sense is that they found drivers willing to drive the unprotected trucks, if someone had told me to do that I would have told him to suck it.

I hate Laurel, she's even worse now than she was in season 1, are the writer's making her unlikable on purpose? Has she caught Andrea Syndrome from the Walking Dead?
Why exactly is she blaming the vigilante? Because he walked away? What was he supposed to do, use his magical healing powers? And why did she think Tommy was more deserving of his help than everyone else in the Glades, hundreds died, thousands were in danger and she's pissed because the vigilante didn't drop everything to help the one guy she cares about, can you be more self centered?
If it wasn't for her and her inability to get her ass out of the glades or at least the building Tommy wouldn't even have been there.

It was a good episode that suffered from too much Laurel, can they please get rid of her?

Laurel was such a bitch to Ollie in Season 1; now she's being a total bitch to Arrow. But if Arrow reveals his secret identity, I'll bet she'll let him bang her again.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Well, the intent is probably that she thinks, Arrow put his vengeance before helping others and to a certain extend this is true, and her grief and guilt amplifies this.
I wouldn't expect her to act rational, but her crusade after her 180° is a bit much.

It's understandable. All the available police were on standby to chase down the Hood. A dozen of them were sitting in the gents at the DA's office just in case he showed up there apparently.

I hope they don't get too lazy and forget to plug these plot holes in every episode. It clearly wasn't a case of not wanting to pay extras. It paints the police detectives as monumentally incompetent if they didn't think the shipment needed a police escort.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

Really solid outing tonight. Loved the transitions to and from the island. Now we know why Slade needs to wear the mask. A Rhas mention also very well timed. The Black Canary story has me quite intrigued. Even Roy is showing some smarts this week, until he gets cracked i the skull anyway. Tthe writers of Shield need to tune into this show for a few pointers.

Re: Arrow - Season 2

- Loved the Ra's reference.

- I find it odd that they have Felicity working as Ollie's assistant as well as the Arrow and have Officer Lance not putting two and two together.

- Now that the Arrow has rescued Laurel, will she drop her crusade to bring him down? Or will she find some reason to keep up the pursuit?
