Re: Arrow (1x01 - 2x22)

Oliver Queen goes to jail show ends. Only way for him to get out of it is for Diggle to put on the costume make an appearance while Queen is in custody their to dumb to realize Arrow could be working with someone Queen gets off. I mean they might do it another way, but that one is the obvious one.

Re: Arrow (1x01 - 2x22)

Episode 4 looked like a season finale to me..I was like "wtf? they catch him so soon?" , but it is obvious he's getting out sometime in the next episode.

Re: Arrow (1x01 - 2x22)

Relax, it's not like they caught him wearing the Green Arrow dress. IMO worst case scenario is that he'll have to deal with the cops tailing him for some time.

Re: Arrow (1x01 - 2x22)

The show is taking chances and at the very least we can't say there taking the safe root with the story telling.

Re: Arrow (1x01 - 2x22)

Well, in Smallville, they made him do a coming out of the shadow. I never followed that comic so I don't know how close that stunt was if it was anyway.

But... knowing how dumb writers think the general population is, there's probably a twist that will make it look at 2 places at the same time. tongue

Myka : You slept with her didn't you ?
Pete : Well... you... you told me to investigate ok ? So... she's unarmed.

Re: Arrow (1x01 - 2x22)

This storyline would be more surprising if someone else didn't already know his secret. Diggle is going to be the main factor in him getting off.

Re: Arrow (1x01 - 2x22)

Episode already aired so don't read anymore of this post if you have yet to see it.



I was right about how he got off, but still liked the episode. Based on how it ended Speedy is my guess as to who find out his identity next although there was talk of them introducing Roy Harper at some point, but out of the current cast I'm going with Speedy. After she learns the truth it will be down to Merlin and Diana finding out with them doing it in that order. I see Merlin in the finale or during season two and Diana in season three, just cause.

Re: Arrow (1x01 - 2x22)

Everything I said was about the new episode. The show had 3.75mil and 1.3Demo which is it's best since the pilot. I wonder how long until it goes over 4mil again.

We didn't read the comic books.

Re: Arrow (1x01 - 2x22)

Sorry just thought it was common knowledge that Roy Harper is to Green Arrow as Robin is to Batman.

Spoiler

Roy Harper leaves to become Red Arrow or Arsenal depending on the comic sorta like how Robin becomes Nightwing.

Speedy is relative new superhero in recent comics who is a HIV positive prostitute that Oliver meets and trains to be his sidekick. Obviously in this she's his little sister unless they kill her off and in a future season he meets someone who reminds him of his sister.

Diana is Black Canary who Oliver is romantically linked to in different ways in the comics, sometimes married sometimes not.

Merlyn is The Dark Archer and the archenemy to Green Arrow. Think Lex Luthor to Superman, Joke to Batman. He is the only one to revival Green Arrow in the ability of Archery and at times being better than him. Him along with Deadshot are member of the League of Shadows (same group from the Batman movies). How they work him tuning against Oliver will be interesting

Also I have never read a comic in my life so my information might be slightly wrong, but I am going off other media and websites online. I guess having never read a comic book is why I just assume some of this was common knowledge without really thinking about it.

Re: Arrow (1x01 - 2x22)

the show is getting slightly better, tho the family drama still bugs me. don't get me wrong, the sister is frakin hot, but they involve her too much.
i know this show is from comics, but this made me laugh. how on earth did they find Queen's Gambits remains and why teh frak did they bring it up. yeah people are filthy rich, but even those people think twice about salvage operation like that. Ocean is not your backyard pool.

Most large ships, and yachts, now carry transponders and emergency beacons that transmit GPS data along with calls for help. If the yacht went down in shallow water, recovery would not be a huge deal.

Re: Arrow (1x01 - 2x22)

Good episode, but they should limit the appearances of strange looking villains from the comics... it makes the show look less believable.

Re: Arrow (1x01 - 2x22)

Ok, hadn't heard about Speedy, Merlin and Diana. As far as I can see, they are not characters from the tv-show. I have no knowledge at all of the comics.

likeSuasor said that shouldnt be a problem nowadays with GPS and for the reason i think i recall the mum saying she/they sabotaged the yacht so i get why they brought it up that nobody else will ever discover the sabotage. What i dont get is why keep it around after and not just  destroy it for good...... probably just because it can come around to haunt them another time  tongue  cool

Well actually they are. Oliver calls his sister 'Speedy' in first ep I think. His best buddy Tommy has last name Merlyn.. and it's not Diana (in comic) it's Dinah (Dinah 'Laurel' Lance, full name in the tv-show too) smile

Could just be references to the comics.. could be they turn into the comic characters over time.

"Is this about my Myspace page..? Because I can take that down."

Re: Arrow (1x01 - 2x22)

yeah sorry I knew it was Dinah been playing to much League of Legends lately. Those three are in the show playing the same characters from the comics only with a different take on it.

I read this morning an interview the creators of the show did a few months ago were they stated that no one in this universe has superpowers of any kind. They are going to take the Nolan approach and have everyone on the show be human and realistic. Which is why next weeks Royal Flush Gang is bank robbers instead of those with superpowers.

Also that we won't see the big three Batman, Superman, and Wonder Women any point in the near future since they want lesser known comic book people who compliment Green Arrow and not overshadow him.

Re: Arrow (1x01 - 2x22)

i don't remember very well, but somehow i have this idea, that they (the yacht) were somewhere in the south china sea. since the deepest part of any ocean is aroung that area, the salvage operations would be extremely difficult and expensive.
just pointing out the flaws in comics.

Re: Arrow (1x01 - 2x22)

South China Sea has lots of shallow water, and thousands of uninhabited rocks and islands. Alas, the island he was stranded on for five years was not in the tropics, which is where the South China Sea (west of the Philippines) is. Is the Department of Heuristics And Research on Material Applications somehow involved in all this? That might explain it.

Re: Arrow (1x01 - 2x22)

Got to say very happy with this show, each week it develops and improves

i could do with less of the island Oliver though  big_smile

Re: Arrow (1x01 - 2x22)

The part with Thea and Merlin was a bit...odd I guess is the word to use. The Royal flush Gang was interesting although much like Deadshot we got real no closure on the outcome of what happen. The father is dead the son most likely arrested no idea about the other brother or mother.

Well, the screenshot is of a mirror... Or his other tattoos and scars can switch sides as well. smile

Re: Arrow (1x01 - 2x22)

I agree the one does look mirrored since that's kind of a big thing to miss in make-up.

I liked the newest episode, and I'm surprise that it didn't dawn on me that Captain Jack was Merlin father since they look so much alike in that scene. I guess it helps that I didn't figure that out since their is only a 15 year difference between the two actors.

This show is in my top 3 favorite shows that I look forward to each week.
