Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on October 10, 2012

Arrow is the new Green Arrow CW series, and it’s not half bad. They do ok with the action and have a setup that can run for a while. At the very least, Katie Cassidy and Willa Holland are hot.

The opening borrows heavily from one of the few GA comics I’ve read, Green Arrow: Year One, and in fact they name a character Diggle, presumably after that comic’s writer, Andy Diggle.

There were a couple weird parts. He seems to kill at least one guy. They rather clumsily introduce the idea that his sister is the future Speedy. And they give him a Sasha Bordeaux-style bodyguard, but as with Sasha, the only way this can go is with the bodyguard learning his identity and/or dying.
