Arrow 5.09 ‘What We Leave Behind’ Top 5

Arrow 5.09 'What We Leave Behind' Top 5

Once again Arrow delivered an emotional strong episode that echoed the emotional tone of the show. However, the refreshing consistency in tone, did not make up for the glaring inconsistencies with the overall storyline, individual character arcs and character development. Namely I found glaring issues with Oliver’s character development (or perhaps I should say, regression), Felicity’s storyline (or lack thereof), and Curtis’ very confusing arc. That being said, I was still able to enjoy moments of the episode. Here is my Arrow 5.09 ‘What We Leave Behind’ Top 5 moments.…

Arrow 5.06 'So It Begins' Top 5

On this episode of Arrow, we discover more about the new big bad in town, Oliver’s past continues to haunt him and Quentin continues to struggle. Here is my Arrow 5.06 ‘So It Begins’ Top 5. Original Team Arrow I loved the focus on the Original Team Arrow at the beginning of the episode. It proves what many (including myself) have been saying from the beginning – that Arrow is at its best when it focuses on the original three members of Team Arrow: Oliver, Diggle and Felicity. These three are the…

Arrow 5.01 'Legacy' Top 5

Fall television has officially returned! After a quiet ending to Season 4 of Arrow, the premiere of Arrow Season 5 entitled ‘Legacy’ kicked off with Oliver struggling to juggle his Mayoral duties and role as the Green Arrow. Overall this episode felt slightly disjointed to watch, however it is only the start of the season, so I am reserving my judgement until me know more. Here’s my Arrow 5.01 ‘Legacy’ Top 5.

Arrow 4.23 ‘Schism’ Top 5

Arrow 4.23 'Schism' Top 5

The Season 4 finale of Arrow delivered a satisfying end to an otherwise rocky season. Overall the episode tied up some loose ends and left Team Arrow some time to recover from the tumultous year. Here is: Arrow 4.23 ‘Schism’ Top 5. “He gave me hope” Whilst Season 4 of Arrow ended on a strong note, the end does not justify, or in this case, help us forget the means. Each season of any TV show has ups and downs. Unfortunately, it felt like that Season 4 of Arrow has…

This weeks episode of Arrow “Beacon of Hope” was all about the ladies. With Felicity’s nemesis, Brie Larson paying a visit to Star City in search for the the bio-stimulant in Felicity’s spine. She, of course brought her terrifying robotic bee’s along.
