Arrow: Flunked Leadership 101

Plain and simple: bad leadership.

While I know a lot of folks disagree with me, I stick by my feelings that Ollie’s lack of leadership in certain areas can be highly damaging when compromised—which tonight’s episode demonstrated perfectly.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow: The Sweet and Bitter End

All right Legends fans, you made it. You're completely through this year's four-part crossover event…or, at least you should be. If you missed Supergirl, Arrow or The Flash this week, maybe wait to read this post! Legends was the finale of the event, so all spoilers are fair game here.

Sound good? Do I need to place a SPOILER ALERT bolded, underlined and in all caps here? No?

Great! Let's go.

The Flash: A Ray of Sunshine

I don’t know about you, readers, but I have been having an absolute blast watching this year’s “Crisis on Earth-X” four-part crossover event! I was a big fan of last year’s “Invasion” crossover, but thought it would be a huge bar for the teams behind these shows to have to clear. First, let’s acknowledge how awesome it’s been having all four shows completely involved in the quest to punch Nazis.

Arrow: Plenty of Reasons to be Thankful

Before I jump into this week’s column, I just wanted to give a quick shout out to batfanjordanv1. Every week he chimes in on Couch Club’s comments sections to give some insightful breakdowns and interpretations. It’s clear he’s a big fan of these shows and has a deep knowledge of the characters and their storylines—for someone like me, who came in late to Arrow, it’s sometimes a big help.

Nice work, bud!

On to this evening’s episode…

Arrow: Layers and Serum

Keep it coming, guys and gals!

This week, Arrow continued its exploration of fan-favorite character Slade Wilson AKA Deathstroke, while thinning out the herd of other storylines. Tonight delved deeper into Slade and really started to peel back some layers to paint a picture of who he is just before giving him a proper sendoff (for now at least).

Why Black Canary Should be Leading the Justice League

There’s a pretty big debate about who the true leader of the Justice League is. It’s often a toss-up between who deserves this weighty position of leadership versus who may be best suited for the part. If we’re being even more honest with ourselves, it’s often an argument that comes down to Batman and Superman (anyone remember when Nightwing led the Justice League? That was pretty awesome!).

Arrow: A Standalone Issue of Sorts?

If you read comics, you’re probably familiar with a “filler issue.”

For those who might not be, filler issues often serve as a break between story arcs. Sometimes they occur mid-storyline (which is weird), or they serve to “introduce” a new creative team. Either way, the stories usually have nothing to do with what’s currently going on—it’s usually just a simple/traditional or fun plot that lives outside of a major arc.

Tonight’s Arrow had a little bit of filler issue vibe to it for me.

Arrow: Diggle Got His Groove Back...Or Did He?

Hey, hey. Not too shabby of an episode. Let’s get cracking!

DC has done a good job exploring lesser-known characters throughout their shows. Our very own Arrow has showcased a couple of nice ones in Wild Dog and Ragman, just to name a couple.

Tonight, they continued to delve into B-Listers by introducing Onyx Adams to Star City.
