'Arrow': 10 Heart-Stopping Moments From 'The Climb'

December 11th, 2014 9:35am EST
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Heart-Stopping Moments From 'The Climb'
Oh, mid-season finale cliffhangers. How cruel you are.

But few are as cruel as "Arrow"- because we can't even call "The Climb's" ending a "cliffhanger." That implies Oliver still had the hand strength to hang off a cliff edge, and at the end of this hour he was way too stabbed-to-death to handle that.

Really, this is more of a cliff-flopper. Cliff-dier, maybe.

But it was a pretty intense way to end a year of "Arrow," so let's not overthink the semantics. Instead, let's get down to the last "Arrow" countdown of 2014.

10. The League of Assassins Goes Kill-Crazy!

Ra's al Ghul is not a pat...

'Arrow': 10 Flashtastic Moments From 'The Brave And The Bold'

December 4th, 2014 10:43am EST
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Flashtastic Moments From 'The Brave And The Bo
Oh, if only every week could be "Flash vs. Arrow" crossover week (although given the CW's potential plans to integrate "Supergirl" into the Arrowverse, we're looking at a very real future where there is an "Arrow"-brand series on every night of the week).

But that's a long way away, and also probably not real. For now, we've got "The Brave and the Bold," where Barry, Cisco and Caitlin (no Dr. Wells, sadly- too evil) head to Starling City to assist Team Arrow with a criminal of their own.

And, like "The Flash's" time in the crossover sun, it's a CW superhero fan's beautiful dream. Let's be...

'The Flash' And 'Arrow' Swap Punches, Superhero Wisdom

December 3rd, 2014 8:25am EST
'Flash vs. Arrow' Recap: The Flash And Arrow Swap Punches, Super
In theory, "Arrow" and "The Flash" should be the perfect pairing. One's relentlessly dark and grim, the other's a cheery comic book come to life. Also, the CW's been hyping this thing like no tomorrow. Does "Flash vs. Arrow" live up to the hype?

Good heavens, yes.

As per usual with "The Flash," there's a metahuman loose in Central City. This time, it's Roy G. Bivolo. Oliver Queen might not be a fan of giving menacing villains kooky names, but in this case, it's kind of necessary. Because Roy G. Bivolo. So instead, let's call him Chroma.

Chroma's running amok, using his glowing red eyes t...

Who Are TV's Sexiest Men?

November 21st, 2014 1:00pm EST
Matt Bomer
People magazine rightfully declared Aussie-born actor Chris Hemsworth as "The Sexiest Man Alive." The actor, who has impressive bulked up for roles in "Marvel's The Avengers" and Thor 2: The Dark World, has definitely earned the title. But this blogger, who loves all things television, couldn't help but wonder: who television's sexiest men alive? Here are my top 10 picks in no particular order.

White Collar's Matt Bomer
While "White Collar" may be shuffling off to that great TV vault in the sky, star Matt Bomer's career is just beginning its stratospheric rise, thanks in part to his...

'Arrow': 10 Heart-Wrenching Moments From 'Draw Back Your Bow'

November 20th, 2014 10:06am EST
Arrow
Do we have an overarching storyline for this season of "Arrow" yet? Season one was Robert Queen's little black book and the Dark Archer, while season two was Slade Wilson's revenge. Season three seems like it'll hinge on Sara's murder in the same way, except that story seems to have faltered recently.

Roy's innocent (well, innocent of Sara's murder, anyway), and the case has gone cold. We're closing in on the season's halfway point- things should hopefully pick up soon, and we'll see just what "Arrow" has planned for the long haul.

But for now, a villain-of-the-week story like "Draw Back...

'Arrow': 10 Boxing Glove Arrow-Worthy Moments From 'Guilty'

November 13th, 2014 9:37am EST
'Arrow' Recap: 10 Boxing Glove Arrow-Worthy Moments From 'Guilty
You know what? Let's just get this out of the way first.

BOXING-GLOVE-ARROW-BOXING-GLOVE-ARROW-BOXING-GLOVE-ARROW!!

That felt good.

A lot of plot momentum on this week's "Arrow"- Laurel and Ted upgrade from boxing lessons to vigilante lessons, Roy gets a legit superhero name and we get an answer on that whole "did Roy kill Sara?" thing. But most of all, a man got punched by another man while they were across the room from each other.

"Guilty" might have erred a bit too far on the cheesy side, but it's impossible to complain when boxing glove arrows are involved.

So with that in mind...

'Arrow': 10 Mind-Blowing Moments From 'The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak'

November 6th, 2014 9:18am EST
The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak
Felicity doesn't get too many episodes to herself, does she? And she definitely doesn't get flashbacks. So just on that alone, "The Secret Origin of Felicity Smoak" is an "Arrow" outing that stands tall above the rest.

Also, it wins major points in the "Coolest Episode Title of the Season" competition (not that there were any other real contenders. "The Magician?" Pass).

But more than that, "The Secret Origin" was another "Arrow" jammed with gasp-worthy moments and solid character work. Even if the action wasn't too hot this time around. Now let's dig into this week's list.

'Arrow' Season 2 Episode 4 Recap: 10 Shocking Moments from 'The Magician'

October 30th, 2014 9:19am EDT
Arrow - The CW
Who would have thought that killing off a major character on "Arrow" would have these kinds of repercussions?

We lost Sara Lance to a hail of arrow-fire in the season premiere, and since then things have only been getting more intense. By our fourth episode, last night's "The Magician," Oliver & co haven't gotten any closer to actually finding Sara's killer (we've learned it might be Merlyn, but probably not and probably Ra's al Ghul).

It's not a lot. But hey, we've still got nearly a full season to get through, so presumably there's more to learn in the weeks ahead. And besides, "The Ma...

'Arrow' Season 3 Episode 3 Recap: 10 Incredible Moments From 'Corto Maltese'

October 23rd, 2014 9:47am EDT
Arrow - The CW
Three episodes in and "Arrow" keeps throwing new stuff at us. It wasn't enough that the CW killed off one of our favorite superheroes, and threw another character into evil ninja-training mode. Not nearly enough.

So despite "Corto Maltese's" obvious storylines in Corto Maltese, we've got just as much stuff going on at home. Laurel and Felicity and Ray Palmer? All going through some major life changes.

But we'll detail those in the list below. Let's get to it already.

Maybe not the biggest deal, but hey- that's why it's at the top of the list. And besides, ...

'Arrow' Season 3 Episode 2 Recap: 10 Insane Moments from 'Sara'

October 16th, 2014 8:03am EDT
Arrow
Boy, that was a depressing hour, huh?

That tends to be the case when a show kills off a major character- you've got to take a little time off and say goodbye. Closure is as important with our fake TV superheroes as it is in real life.

Ok, have we gotten far enough in this recap that the little preview on the front page won't show the MASSIVE spoilers from last week? Yes? Cool.

In that case, "Sara" is one long hour of goodbye for the Canary. So long, Sara. You came back from the dead once, but now you're riddled with arrow holes and buried underground. Probably not coming back from that ...

'Arrow' Season 3 Premiere Recap: Top 10 Moments From 'The Calm' We Can't Wait To See More Of

October 9th, 2014 8:53am EDT
'Arrow' Season 3 Premiere Recap: Top 10 Moments From 'The Calm'
"Arrow" is not a show that deals in subtleties. If it was, "The Calm" would probably have been titled something else and not "The Calm," a giant neon-red clue that this will be an episode where everyone is happy and serene, but then things go horribly wrong.

Which is exactly what happens in "The Calm."

Although to "Arrow's" credit, at least next week's episode is titled "Sara" and not "The Storm." That'd probably be a bit too much.

But more important than any title was the stuff within "The Calm"- stuff that was tense and exciting and set up all kinds of craziness that'll surely develop ...

John Barrowman Dishes On 'Arrow' Season 3, New Album, And Concer
There's nobody busier than John Barrowman. The multi-talented star recently hosted ABC's summer series Sing Your Face Off, then released his first independent album You Raise Me Up, and starting October 8 we'll be able to enjoy him as a regular on The CW's hit Arrow. If you're keeping score, that means he can wow studio audiences, cover a Demi Lovato song, menace Starling City, make time for his legion of fans, and look fantastic doing all of it.

We caught up with John earlier this week to discuss the reception to his album, his plans for a corresponding concert tour, and what fans can loo...

Top 20 Superhero Teams That Made It To Television Or Film

There have been many superhero teams, but only a select few have made it to the big time: having a television or film! Of course, that's not always a good thing (our first selection can attest to that), but still – it's an accomplishment! Here are the Top 10 Superhero Teams That Made It To Television Or Film.

Suicide Squad

The Suicide Squad is an anti hero team employed by the American government for "deniable operations," meaning if they get caught no one is coming to save them. Criminals such as Deadshot and Poison Ivy go on insane missions in exchange for pardons. The team has been men...

Fall TV 2014: A Night By Night Comparison Of What May And May Not Work

Fall TV 2014: A Night By Night Comparison Of What May And May No
Now that all the big networks have revealed what they’ll be showing us this fall, let’s take a look at what may or may not work.

SUNDAY:

ABC is essentially playing it safe, and keeping Sunday Night intact. American Crime will swap for Resurrection at midseason. Resurrection was a buzzy drama that started seeing a ratings decline. Not waiting till midseason is probably a smart move. You don’t want to lose any more audience. It’s not a winning strategy, but ABC just doesn’t want to be in last place.

NBC has football, another super safe move. CBS is shaking things up, banishing Amazing Race...

'Arrow' Season 2 Finale Recap: 'Unthinkable'

'Arrow' Season 2 Finale Recap: 'Unthinkable'
Arrow caught the wandering gaze of television critics and bloggers around mid-season when The CW sent out an advanced copy of an episode. Ever since the advanced copy hit the mailboxes of critics nationwide, Arrow became more part of the pop-cultural fabric. Discussions about ABC's Marvel's Agents of Shield would inevitably include comparisons to The CW's Arrow, and how Marvel could not compare. Perhaps that's why Arrow didn't catch on with the general Internet public, and why it didn't become a buzz-worthy or 'trendy' show until some critics started writing about it. The CW was the Gossip ...

'Arrow' Season 2 Episode 22 Review: 'Streets Of Fire'

Arrow -Streets of Fire
The bad guys triumph in the penultimate episode-“Streets of Fire”--of Arrow’s second season. Bad guys always triumph in the episode before the final episode of a story or a season. The situation seems dire. The heroes face insurmountable odds. A pep talk from a pretty girl motivates the hero. Underneath the carnage and chaos of a burning city exist characters that refuse to give in to the fate prescribed by the diabolical madman with an agenda, a personal vendetta. The job of the writers in the room is to make the situation seem irredeemable and dire and without a hope for the do-gooders, t...

Oliver’s response to his mother’s death was isolation, seclusion, in a secret lair that served as backup in case the other lair was compromised. Felicity and Diggle find him there, with the help of A.R.G.U.S., and Oliver seems annoyed his trusted friends would search for him to see that he’s okay. Slade Wilson wanted to destroy Oliver’s life and kill the fighting spirit that carried him through the island and beyond, that helped him transform from killer to city champion. And Oliver looks destroyed. His absence from his mother’s funeral makes people mad. They don’t understand why he didn’t ...

'Arrow' Review: Season 2 Episode 20 'Seeing Red'

April 24th, 2014 10:05am EDT
Arrow - Seeing Red
Another genre series produced an episode titled “Seeing Red” that ended with an unexpected and devastating death. The aftermath wasn’t pretty. A good witch turned bad, started to burn people’s skins off, and needed a yellow crayon to save her life before she destroyed the world. The thematic continuity from her lover’s death to that touching scene as the world nearly rips apart is that the world already ended for she who wants to end the world. Slade’s not dissimilar from Roy. Both men act badly because of the mirakura. A stark difference is seen between the two men late in the episode. Roy...

The best scene of the episode happens in the medical cell at the Starling City Penitentiary, where Quentin’s healing from an assault by one of the many criminals he and the Arrow put behind bars.

Laurel visits her father, bothered and upset by Slade’s truth bomb in the last episode about Oliver’s after-work activity.

Isabel wouldn’t follow Slade Wilson if she knew he listened to the prettiest ghost that ever haunted a person. Actually, she would. Slade’s not-so-secret secret is his craziness. The eye-patch, the measured tone he uses to address those around him, the influence he has on people, and his cryptic warnings that others take for casual language suggests one whose every syllable is measured and every sentence written and re-written before it leaves his mouth. Slade’s very, very good at acting the role of the supervillain. Villainous characters earn the super prefix in comic books and any kind of...

Threats transformed Sara from wide-eyed to myopic. She will kill to save her sister’s life. And she’s not portrayed differently from Helena Bertinelli, that transfixing yet deadly Huntress. ...
