I'm pretty sure the comic Green Arrow was a shameless ripoff of Batman.


Pretty much. When he first appeared in comics, he had a kid sidekick, an Arrowcar, Arrowplane and even had an Arrowcave (although GA had his first).

True story, bro.

That's the CW for you. The minor character body count on The Vampire Diaries is hugely high, too.

Solid episode, I thought.

Although, what's Oliver going to do when he runs out of the awesome anti-poison herb stuff?

Also, this whole tiny glimpses of backstory thing is cool and yet completely maddening.

Interesting sidenote: ShadowDog has been ragging about Green Arrow being a Batman ripoff but in the comics Deadshot originally was a dark knight pretender, came to Gotham in a costume and all. So this episode was probably to Dexter "The Battle of the Wannabes"! (/BBatB Aquaman voice)

Oh and Icy? I'm going to let the whole "bro" comment slide this time but only because I know you've been reading George RR Martin.

Anyway. Did Deadshot always use a gun? I find it funny that Deadshot is a Batman wannabe who uses a gun.

Yet Hawkeye became useless after running out of arrows while Black Widow hijacked an alien skyski.

"Skyski" sounds like the main character of a Russian knockoff of Star Wars.

So this week's episode, I was like

Excessive monolouging on Laurel's part!

Dinner or fletching or both?

Come on Bodyguard Guy, you know you want to join in on the ridding the city of corruption shenanigans!

Stepdad... may be an okay guy.

I really like the IT girl. More of her, please.

OH SNAP, COVER'S BLOWN, THANKS CAMERAS!

HOLY **** IT'S CAPTAIN JACK!

Get used to it. Smallville teased us with Clark finally taking that next step for 7 seasons. Arrow can't do that because Arrow is Arrow. What they can do is titillate your geeky parts by flashing known characters and then not delivering... until next week.

So glad I had swallowed the soup I've been sipping on before reading that.

He'll probably suggest a threesome.

Now that it's aired on all coasts, we might as well forgo the boxes...

I wonder if it's a play on Robin Hood without being too copyright-infringing? Because it's pretty clear he's a modern day Robin Hood.

And Ollie said that the Hood just had to be seen... not really do anything, just be there and kick a little ass. Bodyguard guy can kick a little ass.

I have a brain the size of a planet. Of course I'm not happy! :p

Okl now that Deathstoke was seen (if that was him, I'm not 100 percent convinced), there's only one thing to look forward to. Getting Tommy to that island.
