Have The CW Anit-Heroes Gone Too Far?

klaus originals

This week has two season finales that are sure to be action packed. These two finales are both on The CW and both involve “anti-heroes.” Anti-heroes are those characters that seem to be in the “heroes” category but don’t actually follow any conventional hero characteristics. The two CW shows I’m talking here are ARROW and THE ORIGINALS. What these two show’s anti-heroes have in common is that they both have made some very bold and potentially unforgivable moves in the episodes leading up to the finales this week. So I ask have Klaus Mikaelson and Oliver Queen gone too far? [Read more...]

This just in, new episode photos and previews from the Wednesday December 3rd episode of ARROW. Direct from The CW, “PART TWO OF THE ARROW AND FLASH CROSSOVER EVENT — Oliver (Stephen Amell), Arsenal (Colton Haynes) and Diggle (David Ramsey) track down the location of a boomerang-wielding killer named Digger Harkness (guest star Nick E. Tarabay) but are surprised when they come face to face with an A.R.G.U.S. team. Diggle asks Lyla (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) why A.R.G.U.S. is involved, but she defers until Harkness attacks the building, killing several agents and targeting Lyla. The Arrow joins the fight and gets help from an old friend – The Flash (guest star Grant Gustin). Harkness manages to get away and Oliver teams up with Barry again to find him before he can get to Lyla. When Harkness plants five bombs in the city that are timed to explode at the same time, both teams must come together to save the city. Jesse Warn directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Andrew Kreisberg, and teleplay by Marc Guggenheim & Grainne Godfree Schwartz (#308).” [Read more...]

Today’s TV Addict Top 5: Our Favorite Second ‘Ships! (feat. ARROW, LOST, VERONICA MARS & More!)

Most shows establish who fans are suppose to root for fairly early on in their run but what I think is the most interesting thing that can happen is a pairing that viewers (and sometimes even the writers) don’t see coming. Shifting relationships can be great plot devices (the CW has basically based their whole network on this theory) and I find myself surprised when a character shifts their romantic intentions and gets together with someone other than the initial “ship.” A horrible example of this would be when the Friends writers tried to make Rachel and Joey work (and shockingly, it didn’t even work a little bit). Below are my Top 5 “Second” Couples.

During this past weekend’s ARROW panel at San Diego Comic Con, the cast and creative team teased that season three would see Oliver Queen attempt to live a normal life. But just what does an attempt at normalcy entail? Well, we went directly to the source and were rewarded with some scoopy tidbids that will no doubt be music to “Olicity” fans’ ears in particular. Amell teased what fans can expect in the premiere, whether or not Felicity will be the only women in Oliver’s life this season and why he’s thrilled to put a rest to those Justice League rumors. But hey, don’t take our word for it, find out for yourself what Stephen Amell himself had to say, after the jump. [Read more...]
