Arrow Season 2 Premiere: City of Heroes

Published October 10, 2013 by tiradical20s

Ladies and gentlemen, we have a new ship in town and ship thy name is Olicity! Is it just meror did Oliver and Felicity get WAY into each other in this episode? Can I just say I am definitely not a fan of this show but will be watching it for YOU by popular demand.  I have a list of shows that I don’t like to watch but do anyway….on that list is also Revenge and Hannibal.  At least Colton Haynes is on this show even though I am still nursing the wounds from him leaving Teen Wolf so abruptly.

Arrow continues next week

What I am watching tonight: 10/9

Shows I have dropped so far this season and why?

Published November 14, 2012 by tiradical20s

666 Park Avenue (ABC)

While it had a promising outlook, the plot just made no sense and the characters/storylines were strange and somewhat offbeat from what they were trying to portray.  I would consider going back to rewatch the show over the summer if it gets picked up for a second season.  Sets were damaged during Hurricane Sandy, so who knows what is going to happen to this show? Ratings have also steadily declined and have not picked up.


Last Resort (ABC)

While I liked the first episode of this show, I decided that I would get bored quickly by it.  I have a hard time staying with shows of this nature and I figured I would quit while I was ahead.  Ratings have declined and ABC only ordered 2 additional scripts for it (giving it 13 episodes)….I would say I probably made the right decision.


Elementary (CBS)

This show has done surprisingly well in my opinion.  I found the first episode to be extremely difficult to watch and Lucy Liu as a modern day Watson was just too unbelievable to even try out.  The show has steady ratings and has received a full season order and EVEN a superbowl episode.  This show is not under consideration for me to pick up if it is renewed.


Made in Jersey (CBS)

Do I even really need to explain myself here?  First casualty of the 2012-2013 series.  Need I say more?


Vegas (CBS)

I was flat out bored the second I saw Dennis Quaid in a cowboy hat. The show is doing quite well with good ratings.  I will not consider watching this show again even if it is renewed.


Arrow (The CW)

I do enjoy this show, but for some reason it is very difficult for me to watch.  I would reconsider watching this show if it is picked up for a second season over the summer, but right now I don’t have time for it.


Beauty and the Beast (The CW)

I was shocked when I heard this show was given a full season.  It is borderline terrible.  I might consider watching it again, because I forget why I hated it so much (besides Kristin Kreuk playing an unbelievable cop) but for now I definitely don’t have time for amateur hour.


The Mob Doctor (Fox)

I gave this show a nice try, but I knew it was time to stop watching when I was falling asleep during the episodes.  I will not consider watching this show again over the summer if it is given a very unlikely second season.


Revolution (NBC)

I watched a lot of this show and recently decided nothing was happening in it.  I started falling asleep during the episodes and I knew it was time to move on.  I would consider watching this again over the summer if it is picked up.


Animal Practice (NBC)

My least favorite television pilot ever.  I did something I don’t usually do and didn’t even watch the entire pilot.




Arrow Season 1, Episode 3: Lone Gunmen

Published October 25, 2012 by tiradical20s


Oliver fights “Deadshot,” a Russian assassin hired to kill some businessmen who all want Unidec Industries

He teams up with Detective Lance  save Walter and the other buyers and kill Deadshot.

Thea’s is having teenage angsty times where she doesn’t listen to anyone but her teenage self.  When Oliver sees her out at a club and questions her presence there, she tells him that Laurel and Tommy have been sleeping together.

Laurel and Tommy wonder why Oliver was so accepting of their trysts, but Laurel figures its because he has no right to judge her.

In a flashback sequence , the Chinese man who shot Oliver was actually trying to help and save him from others on the island. Oliver tries to escape, but is pursued by an unknown gaggle of weirdly cloaked men.

Arrow Season 1, Episode 2: Honor Thy Father

Published October 19, 2012 by tiradical20s

Ollie continues his quest to do his fathers bidding and right his wrongs, this weeks target: Martin Summers, whom Laurel is already trying to take down whose wrong doings got a man killed.

While trying to reconnect with Laurel, they are attacked and Ollie saves Laurel.

I’ll be honest with you, if Ollie did all those things to me, I wouldn’t let him back in so easy, no matter how long he was on a deserted island.

The end sequence was very interesting.  Did Ollie learn his skills from a former green arrow??? Looking forward to next week.

Arrow Season 1, Episode 1: Pilot

Published October 11, 2012 by tiradical20s

First Impression:

This could go either way.  It could be TERRIBLE or it could be good.

Last Impression:


I definitely liked it and it definitely had a very interesting start.  Obviously we have Katie Cassidy as Laurel, a CW alum, who we also all loved in Harper’s Island. Usually when you watch a pilot and you just know it’s going to suck, you get that feeling which I like to simply label “the dread.”  I did not get “the dread” from this, not at all.  Do I think it is going to last the season? Yes, I do.  Do I think it will get a second season? Sure! I am waiting to see the ratings at this point, but something tells me between Arrow and Beauty and the Beast this fall, CW has some winners on their hands.  Also, with Gossip Girl being cancelled, there’s an extra time slot….so who’s it going to be???
