Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

Season 1 was hard to watch, I liked season 2. And lost interest season 3 onwards.

I'm not going to say that Arrow is fantastic, but it at least mildly holds my interest at its timeslot. If there was something better on, sure I'd watch that, but there isn't.

I'm mildly interested for the time being, as said the fight sequences are pretty good. Plus, from the sounds of it, at NYCC, they've got a good archery talent that has pointed out film flubs in terms of what Hollywood occasionally does.

I like a lot of things about this show. The action scenes are well filmed, it's not pulling it's punches and meandering in the PG-13 world of Smallville. It takes place in a textured urban enviroment. Merlin's cool and able to nurture a rivalry with Ollie without Smallville's "GEE I LOVE YOU CLARK THE LAST THING I EVER WANT TO HAPPEN IS FOR US TO BE ENEMIES" and while Ollie himself is quite vanilla, the show is overally fairly atmospheric.

But.

Wow, that dialogue. So many throw-away lines of exposition. It's like I started every sentence with "Hey, Allspark, I know it's been a while since I posted because I've been busy writing for a website, but I think i'll share my thoughts on the matter since you know I like to keep informed." once the info-dump quota has been filled I think this show might become pretty watchable.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

I liked the ending, except for the "Hey". That was dumb as hug. Just don't have him say anything and start the next episode with that scene, with some more poignant dialogue. I liked that they made Deadshot pretty comic book-y as well. Bad acting and cheesy dialogue aside, this is a pretty entertaining show. Just imagine if they manage to turn the bad parts around.

Ugh, just caught the episode on the CW's app*. Okay overall, but boy did Deadshot's eyepiece look goofy. The wrist guns were fine, but man that was really odd. Other than that particular wardrobe failure, it was generally a bland episode overall.

Well Teen Titans did call him Slade because the whole "Death" thing in his name and they had to be more kid friendly. Glad they are going with Deathstroke, but I can understand why some would say Slade.



My speculation...PURELY from the shot in the pilot of the mask and the teaser footage, that "Deathstroke" won't be an individual, but rather an identity passed around.

or that was Ravager's mask on the island thus giving Deathstroke more of a reason for hating Ollie then just I was hired to take you down or whatever

Only just saw the first ep. It was ok but I hate it that Oliver is murdering people, geez. Was Adam Hunt's security guy (the one who fought Arrow hand to hand) dead? The arrow was stuck pretty deep. Hope that guy comes back.

Ollie's dad killing the other guy then himself was kinda stupid. They could have survived together. Whatever.

Did Black Canary have a sister in comic fiction? What was Ollie's sister's name? Is it Mia with Aids Speedy from the comics? I wanna see Arrowette here.

I could google Merlyn's real name but he's set as that best friend of Ollie? Too bad.

The actor sounds weird doing his monologues. And he looks waaaay too big / bulky in his gratuitous scene. Not like a guy who was probably sorta starving on an island. Justin Hartley was leaner.

I believe the actor who plays Oliver's mom is American.

I like this show a great deal, which actually surprised me considering that I didn't really get into Smallville until after Lex and Lana left (i.e. watching it regularly).

I am curious to see where the writers and creators go with the characters other than Oliver, given that they are only based on their comic origins.

The last episode was actually pretty surprising ending.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
Just as Diggs agrees to help Oliver, and serve as his conscience (considering the archer's years on the island have made him too predatorial), Laurel's dad comes in to arrest Oliver for being the archer. Even though I expect him to get out of this, it will likely make people more suspicious of him.
Knowledge combined with experience are the building blocks to enlightenment.
