Welcome my new re/watch series!!!

This is the first of many new segments I’m hoping to produce this year. The idea about the re/watch series podcast is to look back at a movie especially one that I hated at first viewing. The goal is to do research about the production and get behind the scenes information about the movie and then to re/watch it with fresh new eyes.

arrow_season4_posterd1Watching Arrow for the past couple of years is like being in a relationship. The first couple of years are great as you’re madly in love. You love the stunt work, the clever use of the island flashback to add background to the characters and their desires, and the continuing growth of Oliver Queen.  However, then by the third year, things start to make a dramatic turn for the worse.

You’re no longer dealing with Ollie being on the island anymore in the flashbacks and 1/2 the season your hero is “killed” and your Black Canary is dead too. Let’s us not forget to include Ollie’s sister Thea is being trained by her father Malcolm Meryln. Our big bad for Season 3, Ra’s al Ghul wanted our hero to take over the league of assassins which would make him the ‘bad guy.” All the while, I keep wondering, how does everyone get to Nanda Parbat from Starling City so damn easy? I can’t take this any more. Nothing feels right. The show tries to push my emotions and force me to care but it rings hollow. This is when your eye starts to roam.  ‘I wonder what The Flash is doing?” Then you realize, I can’t do this, The Flash is the younger sister to the Arrow but DAMN The Flash is better and hotter. No, no, no, no, no.

By year four, you’re struggling to stay faithful with Arrow but you find yourself wanting to be entertained like you used to; you really miss those times. We are back to the island on the flashback with Ollie but it’s not as interesting. The Scooby gang is managing to make do without Ollie guiding and working alongside them but that does not last for very long. Mr. Queen happiness is put on the back burner to help them combat Damien Darhk. Sure on the surface it make seem like the love you experience from earlier in your relationship but then you bring back your dead Canary Sarah, Captain Lance seems to be in with Damien, and we get Diggle with a stupid helmet. Now find yourself texting The Flash, “U up?”

Can there be redemption for Season 4? This fall season has way too many quality shows and so far, I’m only watching it out of loyalty.
