"Arrow" review by Suzanne
Airs Wednesdays, 8/7c pm on The CW

This is one of the best shows on television, and probably the best superhero show that's ever aired. Now starting its second season, "Arrow" is still going strong. Even if you miss some episodes, it doesn't take much to catch up and get into the story.

The season finale ended with the death of Oliver's best friend, Tommy, so he and Laurel must come to grips with that. Laurel is determined now to catch "the hood" as the press calls him. We see right away this season that Oliver doesn't want to be called that any more and he has to also find his way to being a hero and not a hunted vigilante now that he's decided not to kill anyone.

This season looks very promising as we see more of the Black Canary as well as more great super villains, see how Moira gets out of jail (or not), how Thea handles adulthood, and a whole lot more. So far, it's been really great.

Make sure you don't miss it because it's a fantastic show, and not just one for us geeks! It's always a great drama first and foremost.

UPDATE: The show has been just as great this year as last.

It's been great seeing Barry Allen AKA Flash on the show, and I can't wait for his new show. They picked a good actor to play him.

I loved how Oliver has started his journey toward being "The Green Arrow", much like Clark did in "Smallville". He decided to quit killing people (that one has been difficult for him). He's not going by "the mask" any more; he's going by "Arrow" which is a good step. He has a new mask now, developed by Barry Allen (which is a nice tough).

The show returns January 15th with a new episode "Blast Radius". At the end of the last show, there was a huge explosion and Barry Allen was caught in it (turning him, eventually, into the Flash, but for right now, he's just in a coma).

There's some tension between Oliver and Felicity in this new episode. Oliver has trouble with how things are going with his team. Roy goes through some more changes. We learn something really shocking about who is behind things that have been going on lately, and what the person wants to do to Oliver, and why. There's a LOT of story and action packed into this episode and you won't be sorry.

We need more episode guide recap writers, article writers, MS FrontPage and Web Expression users, graphics designers, and more, so please email us if you can help out!  More volunteers always needed!  Thanks!
