Arrow Season 2: Superhero Saturation Point

I make no excuses for liking season one of Arrow. It’s was such an enjoyable show. It had a little something for everyone interested. All of the comic book fans could enjoy appearances by some DC Comics luminaries, while casual television fans still had plenty to enjoy. Stephen Amell absolutely carried the show throughout the first year. The entire show was geared around his performance, and he didn’t disappoint. Entertaining side characters popped up along the way, but this was Amell’s vehicle, and he was making the most of it. With the CW’s reputation for overwhelming teenage angst, Arrowrepresented a potential sea change in how the network’s programming should be viewed (that potential was rather short-lived). It wasn’t a superhero show. It was a television show about death, rebirth, and the impact of our choices framed inside of this superhero world. o this point, season two has been something far different.
