Arrow 5.08 ‘Invasion’ Top 5

Arrow 5.08 'Invasion' Top 5

In a landmark event, Arrow celebrated its 100th episode with a mega crossover between Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow. Needless to say, it was an action packed episode. Let’s dig into Arrow 5.08 ‘Invasion’ Top 5. The Story Overall, I found ‘invasion’ to a very enjoyable episode that was befitting of the 100th episode of Arrow. However, the overall story, while intriguing, felt very contrived. Picking up from the Flash episode, Oliver, Sara, Diggle, and Ray are all kidnapped by aliens (which was carried over from Supergirl),…

Arrow 4.17 “Beacon of Hope” Top 5

Arrow 4x17 "Beacon of Hope" Top 5

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. Hi, it’s Catherine filling in for Amelia this week (make sure to send our fearless editor in chief some love on twitter, she’s a hardworking lady)   Ladies Supporting Ladies This episode was full of Ladies Supporting Ladies and I absolutely loved it.

Arrow 4×16 “Broken Hearts” Top 5

Arrow 4x16 "Broken Hearts" Top 5

It’s Catherine here, covering for Amelia (hope you’re safe from the snow!) this week. In this week of Arrow we had: Cupid (stupid), broken hearts, tearful conversations and bad-ass ladies. It’s Cupid, stupid Amy Gumerick has perfected the balance between sweet and evil, and it’s so much fun to watch!! Her deranged nature is completely unnerving, but at the same time her heartbreak and her motivation is also understandable. Damian Dark… What is the point exactly of his storyline? Neil McDonough has done a fantastic job of playing such a evil…

Arrow 4.13 “Sins of the Father” Top 5

Arrow has always loved its twists and turns, and tonight was no exception.  Here are my Top 5 moments from ‘Sins of the Father’.  Let me know yours in the comments! 5.)  The Team Arrow blockade when Malcolm and the rest of his ninja jerks were trying to chase after Nyssa was brilliant.  We’ve seen the team work together on missions in the past, but usually when it comes to ideals and opinions at least two of them typically end up butting heads.  Because of those common arguments, it was…

Arrow 4.07 “Brotherhood” Review

Anyone who watched tonight’s episode of Arrow can see why this one needed to be directed by the show’s head stunt coordinator, ‘Bam Bam’ Bamford. The action in ‘Brotherhood’ tonight was on point! Couple that with a stunning performance by David Ramsey and you’ve got yourself a pretty fun episode! Being so close to the Thanksgiving holiday, we’ve seen many of our shows move to the family themes this week, and Arrow was no exception. Dealing with both the ties with Andy, and his brotherhood with Oliver, Diggle was certainly…

Arrow 4.06 “Lost Souls” Review

Guilt is such an all-consuming, toxic thing. Since I don’t like my characters perfect, it’s nice to see that illustrated in tonight’s episode of Arrow. Felicity Smoak has been my favorite character since she first stepped foot on the show, and aside from a few missteps here and there, she’s typically just been that perfect character. Because of that, it was actually quite refreshing to watch her lose it. There were times where I was genuinely frustrated, this episode. Not because of the ‘Olicity’ aspects, but more because Felicity was…
