    Clearly the directors and writing staff could make a damn good action-thriller show if they wanted to, but it also seems like WB/CW shows have to come with a "pretty white people with problems" subplot all the time. The fact that so many of the episodes have turned away from the action-thriller aspects to peak in on Laurel and Tommy on a date that has nothing to do with anything going on in the story other than these 2 people have socialized with Ollie at one point or another totally lags the show down.

    Okay I like Arrow, but it's not enough that they have basically copied the Nolan formula, but now they are taking actors from The Dark Knight lmao

    First episode of the season I didn't care for. Everything was just uninteresting minus the Island stuff, and there was barely any of that.

    This was just okay. Basically just an introduction ep for the new characters to the back half of the season and get the C storyline of Digg and his sister-in-law up to speed.

    Nothing wrong. Just nothing exciting.

    I did love Det. Lance jabbing him by putting her on the Hood case.

    That Asian friend of Moira was not the same actor from TDK aka Chinese Investor who Joker lit on fire.

    The Asian consultant I think....

    It was a joke....which is emphasized by the fact that this show has been compared to Nolan's Batman series since day one and has utilized many themes and concepts which made the Nolan Batman series successful

    Are you sure? He looks like him....and no I'm not one of those people that think all asians look alike.

    Was it him or not?

    Harper's going to be played by the jock from Teen Wolf, isnt he? I liked Teen Wolf, even though I know it may not have been everyones cup of tea.

    I'm really loving the way Ollie, Diggle and Felicity are interacting. Ollie and Diggle weren't bad at all alone, but Felicity really added a lot to the cave scenes. Plus, Oliver explaining how he usually does things was priceless. I'm thinking she's the reason he'll stop killing.

    Naw, I enjoyed teen wolf too. The main hunter girl was cute with her very pale skin lol. The show had a nice case though typical of the MTV, WB/CW variety.

    In fact MTV has quite a few nice shows.

    And BOOM! I told ya'll that was dude from TDK:exp:

    So Harper was lying to Lance about the whole Vertigo thing? Shame, they could have had a nice set up for him eventually becoming Speedy/Arsenal/Red Arrow whatever there.
