The Green “Arrow” Is My New Favorite Thing

I know I’m a bit late to the party, but as I’m sure you realize, I am in a lot of fandoms. This week, I’ve been quite under the weather and with nothing to do but explore Netflix and sleep, I started in on my next television show obsession, Arrow. I’ve been wanting to watch this show ever since I saw this pic:

And then there is this one, posted only last week on Twitter when Jared and Stephen went to a Pearl Jam concert together. Where’s my invite, boys??

SWOON. My ovaries have officially exploded.

Besides Stephen Amell being ridiculously gorgeous and having wonderful taste in friends, his show, Arrow, has got me hooked. I started it 4 days ago and am halfway through season 1, with no desire to watch anything else until I catch up. So far, there have been guest appearances by Ty Olsson, Tahmoh Penikett and Janina Gavankar, plus a few episodes helmed by Guy Norman Bee, one of my favorite Supernatural directors. That being said, the show is quite well written and, although I am not a huge fan of the Green Arrow DC comics, has a real comic book feel to it. Starling City reminds me a lot of Gotham with Oliver Queen as a much MUCH hotter Bruce Wayne. The intro says it all.

If you haven’t indulged yet, season 1 is available on Netflix and season 2 just aired the mid-season finale this week and is currently available on Hulu.  Trust me, you won’t be sorry you watched.

FUN FACT!  Stephen live tweeted the recent season 9 Supernatural mid-season finale with the hashtag #SupernatArrow with the hopes that his buddy Jarpad would one day do the same. Aww, besties!

    ah my favorite show! (and if not then top 5.) for those of you that have not found this gem yet, you just missed a great 2 nightcross-over event between The Flash (on Tuesdays @ 8 on CW) & Arrow on Wednesdays @ 8 on CW). Arrow now in it’s 3rd season… brings humor,(even more so when Flash is around) action, some interesting baddies and it’s just a great show. it’s like getting to watch an hour long movie every week. Coming up in the Dec 10th mid-season finale, Oliver Queen (arrow) faces off against Ras A’Goul (sorry not sure of the spelling, which I saw earlier but cannot find)

    If you have not been watching this gem yet, you need to start catching up. The show is already in season 3 & it doesn’t even feel like we have past the first season yet! it’s full of action, humor especially when The Flash shows up. This brings me to the cool cross-over episode you missed because you do not watch. I admit I have not seen many cross-overs of shows but I’d have to say with the amount I have I can count on my hand and this was the best! 2 nights of a Who is better/ Stephan Amell’s Oliver Queen /arrow mentoriing Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen/The Flash (the fastest Man alive…but is he really when the yellow version who killed his mother is still at large?) That leads into the Flash’s Mid-season finale on the 9th. he will face off against yellow (flash). This to me seems more like something that should be a season finale not a mid-season finale. between the cross over & the 2 mid-season finales.. what are they to do with the season finales? Will they be able to top themselves? Both these shows are run by the same show runner that of Rye, NY native (not far from me maybe an hour or so) Greg Berlanti also know for Dawson’s Creek, the upcoming Pan & another current tv series the Mysteries of Laura.
    (which I have yet to catch up on, which will likely be over the hiatus) Watch & find at least one new fave!
