@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

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.

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

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

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  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)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

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

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

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

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

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

I just finished watching the finally and the first thing that came to mind was "HOLY CRAP!" I had a feeling the island would blow up when the amount of explosives was revealed to been placed across the island but never did I expect to see it go off with the rest of Oilver's friends and sister on it, now I can't wait for season 6, it hopefully get off to a good start. Of the four season finallies for Arrowverse this year, I say Arrow was the best one, since it was closing the five year story of Oilver's past on the island so there will be very little in the way of Flashbacks in next season. I do hope most of the cast actually make it off the island, I doult I'll care for William's mother as she not had much screen time aside from a couple of eps in season 4 and again appearing this season but it would be intersting to see Oilver cope as a father and being mayor on top of being the Green Arrow. The season main villian wasn't to bad but he was best when he wasn't wearing a mask, Slade was a much better villian than Chase was pretty determined to hurt Oilver thou I kind of felt after the ep where he aducted Oilver and subjected he to a lot of pain, I kind of felt his role was pretty much up because he kind of achived his goal which was to break Oilver on a mental level. I somehow think for some reason the Legends will save the team from the island, thou when I saw a vision of the island destruction in my mind it was looking at it from above and seeing the whole island simply explode in two fireballs, that's kind of how I envisioned it happening but then I saw the explosion on screen and the fact the team were on the island, those words just popped into my head.

They'll find a way.

 

As long as Thea is okay I'm good, and I'm betting Malcolm actually managed to save everybody because he never dies.

 

I hadn't thought about it before, but now I do actually want to see Oliver as a father, and all the awkwardness that would create with the new thing with Felicity.

Not too Arrow related but I watched the American Ninja Warrior charity with Amell doing the course. Pretty awesome for him but since I don't follow Ninja Warrior, what happened to Amell in the end?

The course was only six so he finished it successfully but he did the salmon ladder cuz that's was he does in the show. When the announcers said the pegboard was new (the obstacle after the ladder), does that mean there was the rest was not finished? Or Arrow just got tired and just dropped to save face? Was the second part of the course even open during the charity?

Just curious.

So just watched the finale on the CW's website.  Aside from the betrayal's, Oliver's team on the island might have been his best team every as far as knowledge, power and ability goes. So unless we are getting all new sidekicks next year, pretty sure everybody somehow made it off the island in time or found a safe spot. Be kind of hard to keep William out of the loop next year.  Guessing if anybody on the island does die, its going to be Williams mom.  And now, since this show is Batman, William will be like Damian Wayne and become a new Arsenal under Oliver's teaching.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

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.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I really hope William's mom doesn't die, because 1. Assuming everyone else on the island survives, Team Arrow would have 3 active parents on it, and that would feel weird to have them all together, clearly more focused on being vigilantes than parents, and 2. There'd be outrage over more "fridging" that'll inevitably get peppered into any discussion during the season.

Now that I think about it, I could see them killing her off too, since her only real scene in the episode was trying to apologize for breaking up Olicity with her nonsense, so that kind of closes the loop on her story... Still hope it doesn't happen though.

I agree with you, I think William's mother will be the one to bite the dust and it fall to Oilver to be his guardian and father, I suspect Felicity will evenly take a motherly role to him while also working as Overwatch, Thea aside from being a aunt to William, I think she will also working in raising William. I think William might start take a interst in his father's nighttime activaties and start learning how to use a bow and training to help his father, at least at first, thou I suspect it be a while before he let into the field along side Oilver and his team

I've started rewatching Arrow; fourteen episodes into season 2:

  • Thea: the best
  • Laurel: the worst
  • Crazy Laurel: Possibly the best thing that has ever happened to Arrow
  • Oliver: "All non-'Saving the City' problems can be solved with a lavish party, I assure you"
  • Crazy Laurel: (to whoever is in her house at the time) "GET OUT!" /throws wine glass

Aside from all that, I'm really surprised at how Mr. Lance is basically my favorite character now. He's basically got the best one-liners so far, and his work with the Arrow is always fun (special mention goes to how well he took the Arrow shooting a lawyer in the shoulder).

 

I've also come to appreciate Sara's character a lot more. Unlike Oliver, she's not a good person at her core. It's not that she feels the world owes her anything, just that she wants to continue surviving however she can, with the people she loves (at least when she comes back).

Why why why why WHY would they format this episode around a story set five months after the island's destruction that gives away the fates of nearly everyone who was on the island when it blew... before the island flashbacks reveal said fates anyway?

Wait ok so throughout the episode they make mention of the time Lance accused Oliver of being the Hood in season one but everyone seems to have totally forgotten the rather large spectacle that was made back in season three when he was accused of being the Arrow which seems odd.

Check out howtohero.tumblr.com where I discuss the finer points of superhero life.
