Her hypocrisy about time travel is nearly as bad though. Only nearly.


#2187

Yeah - I don’t nearly pay enough attention to notice that stuff, to be honest. I think that’s probably core to why I don’t really have a problem with these shows. I have a problem with Arrow though. Because Arrow sucks.


#2188

Arrow S1-2 is good, S3 worked as a blitzkrieg watch in 2-3 days - and Aussie Ras is hilarious at the end.

S4 however, yeah, it’s running on empty.


#2189

That’s because you don’t understand how Oliver has suffered. He spent 5 years on a hellish island for cryin’ out loud (not actually 5 years in duration…more like 5 years in or around a hellish island…but you get my point.)

Actually I would love to hear the Captain Cold version of that intro…

My name is Leonard Snart. I steal stuff. I’m very good at it. That is all.


#2190

I don’t know.

I’ve seen some flashbacks of that Hellish island and it doesn’t seem super-hellish. Also, it was really only sort of like 4 years and 1 year in Russia.


#2191

I think that there was a year in Hong Kong as well…Maybe Hellish island years are like dog years :smile:

Edit: I mock but I genuinely enjoy these shows, which admitting that they aren’t always very good (I still believe that killing was too good for Tommy Merlyn, the whining little git).


#2192

Wait … so there was like 2 years on an island, which, was like, kind of chill really, a year in hong kong, then another year on the island learning magical powers (for some reason) and then a year in Russia?

I don’t know… that seems overlong.


#2193

My name is Oliver Queen. I had a brief but reviving sabbatical on a hellish island and then did a lot of other stuff. Seriously guys, I went to Hong Kong and Russia and a bunch of other places. I even came back to Starling City for a bit. Now I have come back…or come back again I guess…to save my city…and other stuff.
Oh yeah…I have to become something else.

Sold!

Is Captain Cold in it?


#2195

In the version that exists in my head, he certainly is.


#2196

Messner-Loebs, I would say.


#2197

Isn’t that a bit too recent for you, David? ;


#2198

Wally West was my Flash.


#2199

Cold has been great since that old school story where the Rogues team up to kill The Flash and end up killing an evil universe one by mistake.


#2200

Wrong, it’s Tom Cavanagh… by far.

That said, I think I’m dropping all these shows… kinda getting fed up with the soap opera-ness of it all. Unless next fall is full of even shittier shows, I suppose… and that’s always a possibility :smile:


#2201

Hasn’t been good since he was Professor Zoom.
After that he’s not been entertaining, or as entertaining, and post-Legends Cold I’d place above H.R. or E2 Wells.


#2202

Him and Dominic Purcell.


#2203

#2204

It’d be more tragic if they had chemistry.


#2205

@Tom_Punk’s new favourite show :wink:
