The Legends will go to like, Tudor England and find out the Groom of the Stool is on the payroll of Diaz.

And at this point, i figure the Arrow writers room is like Voyager in its later seasons, they roll in around 10am, pack it in by 4.

There are lost episodes of course. Stories that were commissioned but never made. Or made but misfiled, post broadcast. Sheer incompetence, of course.

All of the season could have been better with just a few tweeks. Diaz being an absolute nobody yet managing to get himself tangled deep into the city? Then just show Oliver actually being stretched too thin and ineffective at being the mayor and GA. Diggle talking gibberish and being completely out of character. Steroids! Crappy start-up tech that gets Oliver angry at Curtis! The Outsiders pissed at Oliver? Maybe have none of them turned on Oliver so the outrage over the spying thing actually makes sense. It would still be a mediocre season but at least it wouldn't be as rage inducing.

I'M DISAPPOINTED THAT CORTANA WILL BE A CIRCLE AND NOT THE ACTUAL SEXY WOMAN FROM THE GAME.


The whole 'team/main cast group breaks down because *drama* and starts fighting with each other' plotline has never, ever, resulted in good TV ever and I wish writers would learn to stop doing it. (The only exception is probably series 6 of Buffy and I don't even think that counts).

Arrow could have had an amazing season focusing more on Oliver balancing his responsibilities as a father with his Jobs, and building his relationship with William/ William coming to terms with Dad being a superhero.

Oh wait, everyone except the CW writers responsible for The Flash Season 3 and most of Arrow. Let the Legends writers have all three shows. Supergirl is doing just fine because even when there is a threat Supergirl 100% can not handle and defeat is certain they still might have a nice lunch or hang out with Martian Manhunters cooldad for an episode. They don't just stand in a dark warehouse growling at eachother about how lines have been crossed and nothing will ever be the same.

They should really just cancel Arrow and harvest any budget and redeemable characters for Legends. Curtis might be fun if he didn't live in Depression City in the greater Dramatic County.

I don't understand why this hasn't happened. It can't be much of a ratings hit anymore, can it? There's just not anything else for Oliver to DO.

He's already lost his fortune and gained it back(?) and become the mayor of the city. He's had several character arcs as a killer who then learns killing is wrong who then learns killing is ok sometimes, and how he lies to people but he's trying and failing and trying and failing to be honest, and he needs to learn to work with his friends but he pushes them away but he wins them back and then pushes them away. I'm not a comics Green Arrow fan, but I don't think there are any big villains they really need to cover that are going to top Slade and Merlyn, and so how do you make a credible season-long plot when he's beaten them and also the entire League of Assassins? Unless they get permission to use Hal Jordan and then they go on a road trip together?

I'd not be surprised if Arrow is like the Walking Dead; it's quality has had a massive drop off, but it has a really dedicated fanbase that watches it consistently, and it sells enough merch to justify its continuing production.

Its too bad there probably isn't a budget, but a Space Cop Green Lantern Arrowverse show would be awesome. Because its on TV they can focus on someone other than Hal.

I'm fine with my superhero shows having different tones, actually I prefer it that way. It's possible to write great comedic shows and great dark and dramatic shows.

I think the first two Arrow seasons were pretty good, but I also liked the first Flash season, how tonally different it was from Arrow, and how the characters clashed when they crossed between shows.

In the early crossovers you got the contrast between the silly superfast hero battling colorful supervillains who were given silly nicknames by the team, and the dark and brooding parkour archer with five years spent in hell who killed rich people who "FAILED THIS CITY", and scenes like Ollie training Barry by unsuspectingly shooting him in the back with remote controlled arrow turrets and telling him to get over it.

All the “right” curves in all the “right” places? There is no right and wrong when it comes to the body God has given you. I see a lot of online body shaming, if someone’s body is not to your liking...keep it to yourself.
