Saw that a few hours ago. I'd definitely make an effort to watch it. Unless it gets written terribly.

I'm down with this. Hopefully they don't fuck it up too badly.

I enjoy Arrow, so I figure I'll enjoy this. In.

"From the creators of Arrow"

Yeah, no wonder this looks like horse shit.

What's wrong with Arrow? It's actually a very well done show, considering the genre.

I tried to sit through 30 minutes of an episode and it was so terrible I couldn't take more than 7 minutes.

You're on the crack, Arrow is good.
First thing I notice when I watch something is dialog.

Is the dialog being spoken how normal people with no super powers or whatever would talk?

When I tried to stomach the show for 30 minutes the writing/acting was atrocious. I think I flipped to another channel while loudly saying "FUCKING FAGGOTS!"

I agree, some of the dialogue can be terrible, but the acting has become much better as the seasons went on. The only character I really have a problem with is Laurel Lance...she's awful.

I have no idea what that meant.

Did you watch the first episode, or did you just jump into the middle? The way he acts/talks when not in the public eye makes sense if you've seen the back story.

If you are talking about when he is in costume and out and about as Green Arrow, no, he doesn't talk like you would in normal conversation. He shouldn't, he's a superhero. Everything he says should be a bit overblown.

Never saw him in costume, I think deathstroke or slade was the villain.

There was this multiracial/multigender scooby doo gang scene where they plan out how to find deathstroke or slade. Then the main guy goes to this boss lady to try and get her to give information and she does some cliche dog shit lines. Then he says some cliche dog shit I know you're lying speech and I flipped the channel in utter disgust.

Chicks almost always suck in anything superhero. It's like a rule or something.

True, though I like Sarah and Felicity (who is ridiculous). Hell, I don't even mind Sin...only Laurel.

Women suck unless they're naked. The game of thrones rule.

Also, why is everyone so young in the show? Oliver in the comics is like 35.

I guess I won't deny sometimes the dialog is a bit stilted, but as was stated earlier, they've gotten better as the show's progressed. Yes, sometimes hack dialog gets through, but overall, I like the flow of the show.

True, especially Felicity, whom I want to do nasty, nasty things to.

It seems to vary depending on the comic line. Anywhere from mid 10's to mid 30's. But, yeah, he's generally older in the comics.

I just started reading comics after not for like a year ....or two. I was busy, don't you judge me!

This new 52 bullshit is horrid. Let me show you what was at the end of one of the issues I just read.



Fuck the new 52!

Felicity is insanely hot, no doubt at all. I'd do things to that girl that would embarrass a pig.

For those who care, the pilot for The Flash is out there. Very well done too, it's obviously the one they sent out to the affiliates, no time codes or missing effects, just the full first ep. And the story's really pretty tight too.

Just close the first "play" window that pops up & use the 2nd one, or you'll download a stinky buttload of shitty malware.

I had the same problem. Too much family and Corporate Soap crap. On the other hand, the broke liberal social activist Queen of the comics was pretty dumb too.

I never liked arrow in the comics. The whole robin hood mixed with hawkeye thing just annoys me.
