Default Arrow > Agents

I just watched Arrow S2E1 and I missed the first season as I didn't give it a chance, and now wish I would have. LOVED the show. So much better than Agents IMHO. Felicity.. wow.. hot mama! And loved the quick kick ass scene by Black Canary. She's one of my all time favorites!! I'm totally on board for the Arrow series, lovin it!

I haven't watched ep4 of shield yet, but i hate the fact that they focus so much attention on that hacker chick. she reminds of a bootleg selena gomez or someone that belongs in disney channel sitcom. i don't care much for the rest of the cast either, but her character really annoys the crap outta me. she's like the shield version of ashoka from clone wars.

Hmm, I thought (what I seen of the first season) of arrow was overly cheesey and terrible acting... has it stepped up that much?

TV shows may be an Achilles heel for superheroes, great on movies but naff on tv... story driven things seem to do better, we shall see with whats round the corner (clone, Peter Panzerfaust etc.)

Just watched Episode #2 - Thanks to my Sears $20 portable video player

Seems as if Oliver is in a bit of a bind. I love how they're telling two stories at once. Current time, vs. adventure on the Island.

And OMG that Felicity is ONE HOT BABE!! She can get me coffee any day of the week!

I love Black Dynamite, er.. I mean Michael Jae White, er.. Bronze Tiger.. Yeah, that's the ticket. I wish his fight scenes with Green Arrow didn't take place in the dark. It was hard to tell what was going on, and knives do not make that noise when slicing skin or poking body parts.

If Arrow took a season to warm up and get good, cant SHIELD do the same thing? To this point, SHIELD has not blown me away, but it is still entertaining enough to watch.

Some of my favorite shows of all time absolutely sucked in the first season. Well, not absolutely, but they were not nearly as good as subsequent seasons. I try to give a show a full season and a half before dropping it. Battlestar Galactica was good the first season, then #@#@#@#@ the bed after that. Stargate was hoohumm season 1, but was significantly better and better as it went on.

Moral of the TL/DR is, dont give up on a show after a few episodes. Writers and directors will get the feedback they need to make the show better as it ages. In this age of reality crap, I NEED programming like this to survive

I was saying the exact same thing about the Asian woman; why didn't they get someone younger and hotter? The first episode of SHILED was decent and left some intrigue. Episode 2 was bad but at least they gave us Nick Fury at the end, episode 3 totally lost my interest. If I hear of any superhero cameos I'll watch again, but it's been boring and the two Scottish scientists are horrible characters.

Just watched episode 2 of arrow and agreed, the show is way more entertaining than shield.

Shield does have better production values though. The cast could use some major shakeups

Arrow didn't take a season to warm up it was already 10 times better than agents of shield. The guy playing Green Arrow actually looks and shows off he's in shape just doesn't run around shooting a fancy gun. The fight scenes build the suspense, I seriously had to force myself to watch shield ep 4. Tomorrow night on Arrow Black Canary shows up for longer than a cameo-toe should be fun!!!!! Marvel builds action in films but can't duplicate on the small scene while DC flips and flops at the big screen yet hits home runs on the small screen. Who'd thunk it.

After Arrow talks, one of the criminals should offer him a throat lozenge. Here Sparky, suck on this Ricola and then tell me to quit doing this bad stuff.

No I think they threw around the idea with Smallville. But since Flash is coming, could we possibly see a younger WW, or the return for an episode of clark? They seem to not have an issue on this series doing right things that went wrong on smallville. They allow other hero's access on this. I enjoyed Shield also. They need some superhero issues every once in awhile.

How could I miss the mention of Ra's al Ghul in Arrow?
