ARROW – “Left Behind” Discussion

arrowleftbehind…and we’re back. ARROW left us definitely on the edge of our seats after the midseason finale titled “The Climb”, but thanks to the current episode of 310 titled “Left Behind”, we can rest comfortably in our seats again while watching the madness unfold (sort-of). Usually post mid-season finale episodes of ARROW (we’re looking at you “Burned” and “Blast Radius”) tend to be fairly lackluster. In fact, those both were the two worst episodes of each season respectively. Producers Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg, and Greg Berlanti wanted to change things up this time around though and have Season 3’s post mid-season finale episode be even stronger than the previous. Surprisingly, they succeeded.

The Flash: Midseason Report

THE-FLASH-Full-Suit-Image-610x1011The concept of a ‘spinoff’ show always seemed to throw me off, personally. Most of these instances came from a character gaining surprise popularity, and then creating a show based around the breakout said character. Most of the time, this concept falls flat on its face – but not for instances like The CW’s The Flash, where a character was introduced in ARROW for the sole purpose of having a spin-off, as well as providing support for arguably one of ARROW’s biggest episodes to date (Season 2’s “Three Ghosts”). ARROW’s second season welcomed in Barry Allen, who assisted Team Arrow in episodes “The Scientist” and “Three Ghosts”. Later on, S.T.A.R. Lab employees Caitlin Snow and Cisco Ramon were introduced in “The Man Under the Hood” to provide more subtle exposition for this upcoming spinoff. Originally the episode in which Caitlin and Cisco made their first appearance was to actually be a backdoor pilot for The Flash. To those uninformed, it’s an episode that while having importance in the main show’s storyline, acts as a tool to give emphasis on the characters said show would spin off from. It was a smart decision on The CW’s half to just give The Flash the green light in making a standalone pilot episode, as with the ongoing storm in ARROW’s Season 2, a backdoor pilot for The Flash would have felt really out of place. Not to mention, in “The Man Under the Hood”, Caitlin and Cisco’s appearances felt really out of place to begin with…but it wasn’t on the lines of ‘so glaring it detracted from the episode’. In fact, “The Man Under the Hood” was one of the best episodes of the Second Season, with “Three Ghosts” (featuring Barry Allen) being the best episode to come from Season 2 of ARROW.

ARROW – “The Climb” Discussion

AR309b_0010bI’ve never felt more indifferent towards an ARROW episode, let alone the entire show’s identity, until now. Episode 309, titled “The Climb”, serves as the show’s ‘mid-season finale’ (the phrase becoming overly redundant at this point) before the show resumes around the end of January. What makes this episode give off such an…indifference feel stems from its overall structure. The episode has what any other ‘mid-season finale’ would have – full of reveals, answered questions, and new questions. “The Climb” was overall successful in its execution, but it’s thanks to the obvious plot holes and editing inconsistencies that make it shy from perfect. Though, it’s one great ride start to finish.

ARROW – “The Brave and the Bold” Discussion

flashvsarrowjpg-e14ea2_1280wCrossovers can be a very tricky thing to pull off. On one hand, you can connect each series into a ‘Part 1’ and a ‘Part 2’, requiring the reader/viewer/etc. to subscribe themselves to a series they might not be accustomed to – or, you can make them separate installments with a few things tying into one another so audience members don’t find themselves in confusion. ARROW tried the latter with the conclusion to the two-part crossover with sister series The Flash; and surprisingly yielded great results. In a current season full of both strong and weak episodes; “The Brave and the Bold” gives ARROW a ‘fun’ episode for a change.

By ‘fun’, I’m simply implying that the episode doesn’t really tie-in to all the previous episodes of ARROW or The Flash, and instead can practically stand as a fun 2-hour short film. There are intersperses of plot points here and there between both shows, and being acquainted with the characters does help, but both “Flash vs. Arrow” (The Flash portion of the crossover) and “The Brave and the Bold” succeed in seemly doing the impractical.

ARROW – “Draw Back Your Bow” Discussion

AR307a_177bSeason 3 of ARROW has been a very mixed bag so far. With Season 1, the show kicked things off with an incredible pilot; yet immediately faltered only to slowly become better. By the 9th episode of the first season, things really became interesting. With Season 2 however, things immediately started on a great note, and kept things on an overall good pace throughout the season. As viewers do we want consistency, or great moments followed by a few stale ones? Season 3 has certainly had its share of great moments, but it’s also had its share of poor moments. Episode 307, titled “Draw Back Your Bow” perhaps is the lowest moment to ever come from the season, let alone from ARROW.

ARROW – “Guilty” Discussion

AR306b_0456bThere are instances where you’ll find enjoyment of a television program for the utmost minor things. An episode can be plagued with inconsistency and lack of focus; yet there are plenty of strong, redeeming moments that help solidify it as a great entry. That would be the latest episode of ARROW – which is Episode 206, titled “Guilty”. What promises to be an episode focused around Roy Harper instead tends to put major focus on a guest character. It was ultimately a huge mistake to do something like that, but it still ended up being a good episode.
