People, do you feel like Arrow could be 16 episodes (maybe even 13), and a bunch of what we get is filler ? Don't get me wrong, I love Arrow and the other CW shows, but to me 23 episodes just seems unnecessary. One of my all time fave shows was Justified - 13 episodes per season so things had to move along, even then there was the odd filler episode. I reckon 16 episodes for all the CW shows, with 2 cross over episodes per season would do the trick. As much as I love the characters, but it's tough hanging in there watching them fumble around for 6 episodes, when really there's only enough story to require 3 or 4 tops.
