the second season of arrow is so bad its laughable. the previews for each episode is a joke. the plot is confusing and convoluted, 90% of the story
progresses through news on the tv and the rest comes from texts phone calls or mysterious conversations through ear pieces. the fight scenes are boring and scripted and just all around comatose inducing not to mention how obvious it is when the stunt doubles come in. each episode plays out one of two ways, either the bad guys are bad and beat the good guys so hard it hurts or the good guys come in at exactly the last second to save the day. there’s no tangible tension because every other episode laurel or thea gets kidnapped or somebody gets hurt. obviously they’re not going to kill off a major character so there’s absolutely no credibility to scenes that are supposed to be tense. and when something actually does happen (aka moira) you don’t feel anything because you’re already so used to it. and the flashbacks, sweet lord. every episode has a good half or dozen flashbacks about oliver on the island. every. single. one. you can make an entire series out of these goddamn flashbacks they keep playing and holy fuck they’re boring. like wow we get it oliver was on the island then he met people then they got off the island. go home already.
that being said i look forward to the new season.
