I like”Arrow.” Sure, it’s riddled with stilted performances from majority of the cast (Count Vertigo was one of the worst), Oliver’s moral code remains somewhat dubious (all the episodes with The Huntress is a bit confusing), and a lot of the bad guys seem to die with no hopes of returning. But the action is well choreographed and the story is interesting enough to draw me in hold me there. I’ve been on the record as having said that I’d take an interesting story with subpar performances over a dull story with excellent performances and it definitely rings true for “Arrow“. It certainly helps that they’re teasing some universe building with “Amazon,” another DC property featuring Wonder Woman, coming our way in the future.
The CW announced recently that “Arrow” was picked up for another season, along with “Supernatural” and “The Vampire Diaries“. I’m stoked for the first two, and they recently released an extended look at what’s coming our way for “Arrow” in the month of February to entice us even more. Take a look.
It appears that they’ll finally show us Oliver training to become the man he is now. It’s been a long time coming and we were due for a montage scene. Perhaps they’ll show us Oliver and Slade Wilson’s (Deathstroke) falling out in details as well? I hope so.
P.S. The guy in the red hood that shows up for a second here…is that Roy Harper, the real Speedy?
