Arrow (TV Series, 2012-present)
Episode 3: Lone Gunmen (24 October 2012)
Also new on DVD this week was season 2 of the superhero drama Arrow. (I’m still on season 1, so no spoilers please.)
I have a… complicated relationship with this show. As a superhero nerd, I want to love it, but it just seems so embarrassed of its own lineage. I mean, they won’t even call him Green Arrow. Why have a Green Arrow show if you don’t even want to say his name? That doesn’t outright stop it from being good (see: two and a half Nolan movies), and I have enjoyed it thus far, I’m just getting really tired of that being DC’s default approach when Marvel has shown us how wonderfully “yeah, we’re not even a little embarrassed of this stuff” can work.
Anyway, here’s Unnamed Vigilante Who Totally Isn’t Green Arrow But Totally Is Green Arrow caught in a net during a flashback scene.
