Arrow Review: Season Six Premiere Falls Short in “Fallout”

by Jeff Fountainon October 13, 2017
At the end of last season, with the lives of so many in question, Arrow set itself up for a make or break premiere in season six. Honestly, we all knew most of the cast would survive the explosion on Lian Yu, it was just a question of how they were going to deal with […]

Arrow Review: An Interesting Effort That Falls Short in “Bratva”

by Jeff Fountainon February 9, 2017
While there have been some fun moments with the Russian flashbacks and that whole plot arc in Oliver’s past, “Bratva” tried to do too much with too little and we ended up with another one of those messy Arrow episodes that if anything, is almost expected now. When Team Arrow went to Russia on a […]

Arrow Review: Everything Old is New Again in “Legacy”

by Jeff Fountainon October 6, 2016
As Arrow begins season five it finds itself at a certain crossroads. New comic based shows have come along and with the high quality Netflix adaptations like Daredevil and Luke Cage, the show that began it all is lagging behind. It has lost its way, not quite sure which direction to go and if “Legacy” […]

Arrow Review: Dumb Fun All Around in “Sins of the Father”

by Jeff Fountainon February 11, 2016
When it comes to the League of Assassins, I have always had mixed feelings on their participation in Arrow. On one hand, they have served a purpose in plot arcs and bad guys but on the other hand, in episodes like “Sins of the Father” they can reduce ‘villains’ like Malcolm and Nyssa to almost […]


Arrow Review: A Messy But Fun Ride in “Unchained”

by Jeff Fountainon February 4, 2016
While the episode spent a lot of time bouncing back and forth from story lines like a possessed rubber ball, it was still entertaining for the most part and had some really interesting moments. The flashbacks were once again more annoying than anything but I guess that is one thing that is not going away […]

Arrow Review: Treading Water in “A.W.O.L.”

by Jeff Fountainon January 28, 2016
While it was nice to give Diggle an episode that was essentially all about him, I ended up feeling worse for the man by the time it was all said and done. (No, not just that helmet, although it is still looks incredibly dumb). I would have thought they would have given him something with […]


It’s Not Too Late to Start Watching Supergirl

by Garyon January 22, 2016
Update: Supergirl has been renewed for Season 2 but is moving to Vancouver to cut costs and over to the CW Network. We’ve already seen Kara Zor’el crossover with Grant Gustin’s Flash…now that they’re living on the same network can we expect more and in a bigger sandbox? Only time will tell! I admit it, I was […]

Arrow Review: Revenge Gets Messy in “Blood Debts”

by Jeff Fountainon January 21, 2016
So first off, as with The Flash, great to have Arrow back being Arrow and not busy building up the plot lines for Legends of Tomorrow. While it was a pretty solid and well thought out episodes, there were a few of those ‘Arrow’ moments that left me shaking my head a bit. Still, I’ll […]


Arrow Review: Children of the Corn in “Dark Waters”

by Jeff Fountainon December 10, 2015
As with The Flash this week, it was a big sigh of relief to watch Arrow and not be overrun with Legends of Tomorrow crossover/story line building that put the shows real plot threads in the background. Damien Darhk came out to play and then some and of course, we were treated to one of […]

Arrow Review: Nothing But Fun In “Legends of Yesterday”

by Jeff Fountainon December 3, 2015
As I mentioned at the end of my review during The Flash part of this crossover, there comes a point where you have to just sit back and try and have fun with what you’re witnessing and not take it too seriously. In “Legends of Yesterday”, I was happy to see the writers for the […]
