Arrow: Don't Call it a Rebuild

Wow…

Oftentimes in sports, when an organization is struggling and has a string of bad years, they’ll do what’s called a rebuild—trading guys away in order to get pieces back that they feel can develop and complement some existing players into a winning product years down the line.  It’s often a touchy subject, as most organizations never want to admit they’re in rebuild mode and the fans don’t want to have to “suffer” through the growing pains of young players and a team that can be a mess for the next few seasons.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow: A Crossover that Dominates

This week, the #DCTV Couch Club is doing something a little different. Since the four CW shows are crossing over, we decided to have our club of #DCTV fans cross over as well. Therefore, each new Couch Club post this week will feature all four members of the club discussing that night’s episode of the crossover. In addition, each Couch Club member has also shot a video sharing their individual thoughts about the crossover.

Arrow: One Angry Vigilante

In the words of Larry David, tonight’s episode was “prettyyyy, prettyyyyy, prettyyyy, pretty good…”

If you’ve followed my column this season, you’ve probably learned that I’m a fan of “B” list characters. There’s just something about them. I think it stems from being a kid and noticing that a lot of the “smaller” characters always had some of the coolest costumes. The other factor was that there was always a mystery to them. They weren’t the main guys, so you never really knew much about them in the pre-internet days.

Arrow: There's No Crying in Superhero'ing

Not too shabby of an episode.

There were a couple of interesting things happening there… 

First off, Evelyn takes on a bigger role—stepping out from the background and moving into the foreground of the recruits. 

Up until this episode, the “stronger” personalities of the other team members sort of kept Artemis as an afterthought.  But some of the events in the episode seemed to propel her to the focal point of the episode. 

Which, actually, I had mixed feelings about and I’m curious to know what you guys think.  Let me explain…    

Arrow: A Zombie in Star City

As I watched tonight’s episode, I thought I saw someone I recognized. I did the classic double take, which naturally led to sitting up and asking myself out loud: “Is that…?” Straining the eyes comes next (as if that really helps) until the realization sets in…

Cody Rhodes!

For those of you who don’t know who he is, it makes sense that a manchild like myself, who still enjoys pro wrasslin’, be the one to tell you.

Arrow: On the Line!

I liked tonight’s episode for a couple reasons:

  1. I’m a sucker for characters that aren’t as well known
  2. I’m intrigued (and kind of annoyed) by the different mindsets of Oliver and his recruits

But before I get into the latter, let’s talk a little bit about these “second rate” heroes-in-training: Wild Dog and Ragman.

Arrow: Seems Like a Bullseye to Me

Since this is my first column covering Arrow for #DCTV Couch Club, I want to start things out on the right foot and that means being honest. Truth is, I was never really an Arrow guy. Let me clarify. I’m a huge fan of DC Comics (obviously). I’ve always liked Green Arrow the character, but it wasn’t until recently that I got into Arrow the TV show.

Why?
