I just fucking LOVE this show! It was far and away my favorite new show of last season & this season's premiere did NOT disappoint me in the LEAST! LOVED that first glimpse of this series' Black Canary. LOVED seeing Laurel kick a little ass (so much foreshadowing for her being Black Canary one day). And that moment at the end! "So... what do you want to be called?" As the camera zooms in on a green arrow. I literally SQUEED! I'm such a fanboy.

I'm still surprised that I like a show on CW this much. Excellent season premiere.

My absolute favorite show on TV right now! The cast, the makeup folks, the stunt team, the writers....everyone involved with this show is first rate!! I love Oliver and Team Arrow and I'm looking forward to the rest of season 2. I just wish they'd left Malcolm dead! I hate that bastard! He doesn't deserve to live when Tommy's dead. *sniff sniff*

Season 2 has been far more entertaining than Season 1. There have been some shockers not the least of which was Laurel's appearance. Yowza!

I'm loving Manu Bennett as Deadshot.

I don't care much for Sarah though.

The second half of this season was just awful. I absolutely hated Deathstroke/Slade and didn't find him compelling as a super villain at all. The whole mirakuru mess was just plane idiotic. And they keep killing off the wrong people!!! Last season it was Tommy, this season,

. Why can't they kill of Malcolm? Or Slade? Do we really need two super villains on this show? And why not kill off Lila or Amanda Waller?

Anyway, I'm happy season 2 is over. I want my show back to how it was before. I don't know whether they got new writers or what but season 1 was incredible! The first half of this season was even more incredible and then....blah.

We must be watching two totally different shows, because I absolutely loved season 2 and think that it just keeps continuing to get better. Last night's final was not only a fantastic hour of television, but it was extremely satisfying as a comic book/Green Arrow fan. Can't wait to see what's in store for season 3, and with The Flash.

I can't understand not liking either this season or especially that amazing finale, but to each their own I guess.

They had the Olicity fan in me, I fell for it :lol: I like Katie Cassidy but Laurel is truly awful.

I like Laurel, I just hate what they are doing with the character. I LOVE Katie Cassidy and she deserves so much more. I wasn't too much a fan of the actress playing Sarah, perhaps because I really want Laurel in the BC role, and heck with the uber talented Alex Kingston in the role of Dinah, there is so much potential between her and Katie as Laurel for some really good stuff involving Canary.

I too was fooled at the Felicity fake out. Not going to lie, I got a few goosebumps when he said he loved her. Great fakeout, even though Felicity got the shaft.

Manu Bennett has been fantastic in the Slade/Deathstroke role. Deathstroke is such a great villain, and I think it played out really well over this season. Bummed that Summer Glau didn't make through the finale, but I saw it coming.

We'll agree to disagree about season 2. Overall, I give it a 2.5/3.0 out of 5 stars. The finale was ok, but nowhere neat as good as last years. The island scenes continue to bring a halt to any momentum an episode might be trying to build up. (Although the editing for the finale fight scene on both the island and current day Starling city was really well done in the finale). And the announcement this past week that

will be a series regular next season, I'm no longer looking forward to it. I hate watching a show for one aspect of it, but it looks like I'll be tuning in for only the Team Arrow scenes next year.

It's not just Arrow. I've always hated big super villain stories that take an extended period of time to tell. (Bones/Grave Digger, Castle/3XK, Mentalist/Red John). I don't like long arching stories. Never have, never will. They're boring to me.

To their credit, at least Malcolm wasn't on every week along with Slade. I think I'd have quit the show if they had been.
