CW's Arrow & Flash Thread


Okay, so I checked to see if they're were any threads on Arrow, to no avail. And with season three of Arrow, and the new Flash show coming out soon, I thought I'd try and make a thread for discussion of both (even if there evidently isn't a lot of fans here).

And to clear up any confusion beforehand, Arrow and Flash ARE set in the same universe.

some basic info


So, basically just discuss either show.

I heard Arrow was pretty bad.
Probably not going to watch Flash.
More of a Marvel guy anyways.

Kind of got bored of these 'super-hero backstory' tv series after Smallville. I mean if that's your thing, great. I just was never into superheroes to begin with, so with the sudden saturation of it all, it's getting dull to me.

I watched the first season of Arrow. It starts off really slow, but gets better as it goes on. It was pretty good, but I'm not good at following TV shows. I saw the preview for the episode where Flash is introduced, which got me all excited for it again, but I still have not made an effort to catch up.

Arrow really isn't as much about the backstory, as just the character in general. I mean it does incorporate his backstory throughout the episodes, but not in a way that makes the whole show about it. Its almost similar to Lost, in that it tells backstorys through flashbacks, while still maintaining a present day storyline.

And I can assure you that Arrow is nothing like Smallville. Smallville was Superman Returns, whereas Arrow is more The Dark Knight.

Arrow is a genuinely amazing show.

And the fact that it's fight scenes are inspired by The Raid (they legit even fully recreated a scene) seals the deal that everyone should be watching it.

To be honest, I only started watching Arrow because I heard Manu Bennett (Crixus from Spartacus) was in it. Glad I did though, pretty good show.

I've only seen the first season (waiting for the second to pop up on Netflix), but I really enjoyed it. First five episodes or so weren't too engaging, but after that it got good pretty fast. The acting can be kind of mediocre, that's my only complaint and it's not too bad.

I was pretty meh on Arrow at first. I felt like the first 4 or 5 episodes were so lame, but as they figured out what direction they wanted to take the show instead of just Batman-Lite, it really started getting it's hooks in me and by now I'm a proud fan. More than anything else, I just truly believe the core cast in their roles. Season 2 was really solid, and I'm looking foward to season 3 immensely with the new big baddie* arc starting to unfold. Plus, Stephen Amell is so dreamy.

Bennett is one of the best parts

I like Arrow a lot, and I'm looking forward to The Flash, despite the misgivings I had with the pilot.

Yeah Arrow is really good, blitzed through both seasons in a couple of weeks. Deathstroke is so damn cool and I thinuk the whole show is of an incredibly high quality. It's a level above Batman because of all the family drama and stuff. All the plot twists too that you would never have seen coming.

It's pretty fun. Good fight choreography and solid entertainment overall. Maybe a bit too many romance subplots and glistening though.

The Flash pilot was fine.

Great show I think. Has some really great acting in it.
Some really cheesy acting as well, sure, but I really enjoyed watching it nonetheless.

Also several really emotional moments which imo were better executed that those in most superhero stuff.

It's a very emotional show I have cried more than once when watching it. But that's CW for you.
