The CW’s Arrow
It’s not Smallville. That’s the message from series producers Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim as well as director David Nutter. Just don’t expect the acting doesn’t captivate you like a scene from Breaking Bad or Game of Thrones. The story moves along at a brisk pace to keep you watching. The Pilot may not be the “dark” series, producers would have us believe. However, the stakes are high and the body count will rise.
The pilot tends to have a lot of narration, which does sap some of the energy at times, but the stunts are great.
Stephen Amell fits fits well into the mask of Arrow. Amell has some great fight sequences and juggles the role of Green Arrow and his playboy secret identity, Oliver Queen, well. Arrow doesn’t wear a mask over his eyes. Instead he wears green face paint (or makeup).
Arrow’s got his own personal batcave, or rather Arrow-cave. It’s not clear how long it took him to build it, but he’s got gadgets and weapons for days.
Oh, and if you’re into seeing guys half naked, you’ll get to see Amell shirtless for a lot of the episode. Katie Cassidy says the girls will dig it.
Plus, who doesn’t love archers, right?
You can catch Arrow Wednesday nights at 8PM E/P on The CW.
Hayden Panettiere is all grown up. And, her character Juliette Barnes gets down like a grown up – a very loose one at that.
If you used to watch NBC’s Heroes, you’ll soon come to learn that the phrase “Save the cheerleader, save the world,” has a whole new meaning on Nashville. This southern bell gets around.
Connie Britton will keep you captivated as Rayna Jaymes, the country singer who is getting ousted by upstart, Juliette Barnes.
This isn’t a dark drama, but it’s got some great writing from Callie Khouri and the acting is top-shelf to boot.
It’s like watching Real Housewives or your favorite soap opera, but without the cheesiness and a strong story from start to finish. Just imagine sassy country singers who want to say “listen here bitch” at the end of every sentence – but don’t.
