Arrow: Is This the Return of Original Team Arrow?

  Star City has been facing tough times since Team Arrow split up in the Arrow midseason finale. Curtis ( Echo Kellum ) and the newbies were feeling betrayed and underappreciated -- even though one of them, like, totally betrayed Oliver ( Stephen Amell ) first -- and Oliver, Felicity ( Emily Bett Rickards )   ...Read More... http://www.tvguide.com/news/arrow-recap-original-team-arrow/?rss=breakingnews

Arrow Season 6 Episode 10 Review: Divided

After losing half his team, Oliver Queen continues his crusade to stop Cayden James and his new formed cabal of baddies. But throughout Arrow Season 6 Episode 10 , a new team comes to life as there are now two vigilante teams in Star City. I'm still bothered by the notion that for the millionth time in Arrow's history, the team has fallen apart yet again. Even if the circumstances are different this time around, it still bothers me how they have recycled this plot point. We know it is only a matter of time until they all come together as a full team. With that said, "Divided" ended up being way more enjoyable than I expected.   ...Read More... https://www.tvfanatic.com/2018/01/arrow-season-6-episode-10-review-divided/

Arrow: "Irreconcilable Differences" Review

Normally, midseason finales are always worth looking forward to in the Arrowverse. If the series is question is already on firm footing, the new twists and story developments only further that momentum. And if the show is struggling at the time, these episodes offer a chance to ramp things up and pave the way for a stronger second half to come. Sadly, neither was the case with "Irreconcilable Differences." Arrow was in a rough place before now, and this episode does nothing to suggest that things will improve in 2018. The thing about Arrow is that even in its weaker period during Seasons 3 and 4, at least it had strong, memorable villains to fall back upon. Season 6 doesn’t even have that. Michael Emerson’s Cayden James is easily the least compelling main villain this series has ever had. Sure, Emerson’s performance elevates the character somewhat, but that can only do so much to hide the character’s lack of depth or interesting wrinkles. This episode didn’t even bother to flesh out James’ vague vendetta against Oliver Queen, leaving James to devolve into a villain obsessed with destruction for destruction’s sake. READ MORE...

Arrow: "Crisis On Earth-x, Part 2" Review

With "Crisis on Earth-X" now half over, I’m not optimistic this crossover is going to live up to last year’s "Invasion!". The deeper we get into the actual meat of the crossover, the smaller and less monumental this war between heroes and Nazi doppelgangers actually feels. I’m hoping the writers have some serious tricks up their sleeves for tomorrow night, because this storyline needs something more. "Crisis on Earth-X, Part 2" peaked pretty much immediately, what with the surprise reveal that Earth-X’s Prometheus is none other than Tommy Merlyn. That was certainly a cool twist, and it makes you wonder why Part 1 didn’t end on that reveal, rather than the far more generic, expected reveal of Dark Arrow and Overgirl’s identities. Regardless, it was really great seeing Colin Donnell back in action, however briefly. And I assume this was also a way of acknowledging the popular fan theory from early on in Arrow: Season 5 that Tommy was Prometheus. In a way, that theory turned out to be correct. READ MORE...

Arrow: "Thanksgiving" Review

You have to question The CW's decision to air this episode tonight, both because it's a major American holiday and because it makes for a pretty depressing way to spend the evening. But on the other hand, it's not as if there's any time to waste. Arrow needed to set a number of wheels in motion in order to set the stage for next week's "Crisis on Earth-X" crossover. "Thanksgiving" managed to accomplish that goal while also doing a great deal to address Season 6's biggest flaws. Legends of Tomorrow aside, it's been a strong week for the Arrowverse in general. The reasons seem pretty similar all around. Like Supergirl and The Flash before it, Arrow succeeded this week in delivering a more plot-driven episode that establishes a clearer conflict for the season as a whole. It says a lot that Ollie being arrested by the FBI was just the opening salvo in a night full of dark developments and character conflict. In the process, we now have a two-pronged conflict for Team Arrow to contend with. Ollie faces an imminent trial that could land him behind bars for life (if not put him on death row). And the team faces a resurgent threat from Cayden James, a man who seems to have a very personal grudge against the Green Arrow. READ MORE...

Arrow Midseason Finale: More Than One Friend Betrayed Oliver

  Arrow ' s midseason finale may have started out mushy-gushy with Oliver ( Stephen Amell ) and Felicity's ( Emily Bett Rickards ) wedding reception, but things quickly took a turn for the traitorous when Quentin ( Paul Blackthorne ) relayed some very bad news: The FBI found a witness in their vigilante case   ...Read More... http://www.tvguide.com/news/arrow-midseason-finale-recap-team-arrow-breaks-up/?rss=breakingnews

Arrow Season 6 Episode 9 Review: Irreconcilable Differences

Who has time to celebrate the holidays in Star City when there is a traitor on Team Arrow! The focus of  Arrow Season 6 Episode 9  is all about finding out who is stabbing Oliver in the back while dealing with Cayden James. I won't rant about this for too long, but nothing felt right about the wedding reception. Oliver and Felicity got married during Iris and Barry's wedding by stealing their thunder, and that still leaves a bad taste in my mouth.   ...Read More... https://www.tvfanatic.com/2017/12/arrow-season-6-episode-9-review-irreconcilable-differences/

Arrow Fall Finale Recap: There's No Spy in Team Plus: An Alliance Revealed!

This Thursday in the Arrow fall finale, two big reveals threatened to cripple the team from the outside and from within. But first, some post-wedding revelry, in the form of a formal celebration of Mayor Queens marriage to Felicity Smoak.
