Re: Arrow Discussion Thread.

If Constantine joins up sometime in season 4, fans need to watch that episode and be one of the highest rated episodes because who knows maybe Constantine can find some sort of revival from it.

Re: Arrow Discussion Thread.

Really not inspired by the description of Anarky as a deranged criminal. I have no faith in the show-runners to capture the true essence of the character, who served as an avatar for Alan Grant's developing libertarian worldview in the comics. In the show since Green Arrow is bastardized to the point of helping cops physically subdue protesters (a far cry from his own anarchic origins), I reckon Anarky will be similarly ruined. This is going to make me angrier than it probably should.

God I hope that Diggle costume isn't real.

Re: Arrow Discussion Thread.

Arrow's biggest heel - ME - is back!

1) Michael Holt being supervised by Superlicity - fuck you. Also, turning him gay (which I'm never against) only to not interfere with Olicity.

2) Ray signing over so that Oliver can have resources is stupid as fuck. Never getting over that and probably will never be explained.

3) Someone fucking kill Superlicity.

4) Oliver turning into lighter Green Arrow because of Felicity - fuck you.

5) Just someone fucking remove Marc Guggenheim.

Also, just read today an ask towards MG for having more Olicity sex scenes + kinks

6) Once again promised more Laurel but no-selling it cause last season she had nowhere the screen time of the first 2 seasons and she's the leading lady with most interesting storyline.

Fuck this show.

Re: Arrow Discussion Thread.

Not having watched much of the show, is my impression that the showrunners are doing to Felicity what Smallville did with Lana Lang?

As pro-Lana and anti-Superlicity I might be biased but...

Felicity's case is worse because unlike Lana who was liked only by the creators, Felicity gets support from Guggenheim and the fans (some of which are the biggest psychos in the world). Also, Lana at least was a canon comic character and important to Superman mythos.

Felicity however has had her role and abilities being blown out of proportion by practically making her the smartest person in the Flarrow verse even though she was an ordinary IT girl in s1 and the STAR Labs team is clearly beyond her capabilities. Like who the fuck can make virtual autopsies out of nowhere or know more about bombs from the Internet than a former soldier?

She also lacks much characterization beyond "being awkward, unbeatable at anything and wants to bone Oliver". No depth shown and s3 has been basically her doing the opposite of what Oliver wants so that there can be some tension.

She constantly gets praised for being amazing and great and superintelligent from the Arrow to The Flash villains. She never gets called on any bad behaviour and has been put as the moral compass of the team even though she was the first willing to leave.

This and many other examples are of course because of her fucking fanbase that wants even more of her (and the creators don't want to damage Saint Felicity by tainting her with any flaws) and make dozens of people close their social profiles by bullying them and the creators just keep giving in to their wants, effectively retconning and ruining the show as well as practically making the whole marketing campaign center on Felicity/Olicity.

Words can not describe what rot has followed Felicity's popularity and the writers' decision to keep pandering to that fanbase for the free marketing instead of writing a show about vigilantism.

Re: Arrow Discussion Thread.

As much as I think the Olicity stuff has been poorly handled, anyone else bothered by the fact that Oliver basically handed over all the resources in the world to Malcom Merlyn and allowed him to be in an even bigger position of power, instead of bringing him to justice like he should've been? I mean this dude killed 503 people at the end of season 1, to think Oliver would just overlook that just to be in good relations with his sister's father is very un-hero like IMO.

And TBH it would've been better to see Nyssa as the new Ra's. It just seems so out of character to me to see Nyssa kneel to Merlyn after the way he killed Sara, regardless if he's the new Ra's or not.

Anyway fuck Marc Guggenheim

BUT HE IS THEA'S FATHER! Yes, Oliver, he was the reason his son died but keep him alive because Thea shares DNA with a mass murderer

Excluding Oliver forgetting that Sara died somewhere like 5 minutes after it, the show has given zero real justification why Merlyn is not in prison, let alone alive. They've made him a Villain Sue.
