Welcome back to the weekly episodic breakdown of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow on ENR. Last week the entire perspective on this show changed and the DCTVU is never going to look the same. This week the team travels to 1987, visits their younger selves and learns in detail about the tides of change and how it applies to our time travel heroes…er legends. Read more...

For the first time, it is my honor to walk you through DC’s Legends of Tomorrow each week like I did for Flash, Arrow and Supergirl last season. However, as I watched the two-part season premiere for examination and exploration here I was immediately struck by how different this series is structurally from the rest of the Arrowverse.   Read more...

The last entry in our episodic journey into Arrow was two weeks ago. As with Flash this week I withheld my review last week in order to do a thematic side by side comparison with this week’s episode. All season long, dear readers, you have helped me explore the tropes, themes, devices and narrative of not only Arrow but Supergirl and Flash as well. All season we have focused on these things rather than the content or the wish list of every fan of the show. I have intentionally avoided the whole “too much Olicity” cries of the internet because I felt that all season it was important to look underneath the whimsy of details, (after all, what is preference but whim?) and take what the creatives gave us. Besides, how can you critique for content until all the content is given? Read more...

Barreling into the darkness at a rapid pace is never wholly comfortable, even if you are just a witness to it. With each installment of season 4 the creative team at Arrow seems to be doubling down on Ollie’s commitment to the light and with each installment the narrative demands that life kick mud all over the team – what is left of it.  We have explored in detail the thematic balancing act the show has maintained between the scripted and intentional narrative and the implications that serve as undertones for the thematic heart of the show.

It is never easy when a loved one dies, even if they are fictional. For Arrow the death has been far less permanent and far more fluid than we can hope for in real life. Yet grief fascinates us as a culture because it is so powerful in us. When grief over takes a human being it changes the filter and scope of all we do for a time until the cycle has passed and scars have formed over the once too painful wounds of loss. Read more...

Of all the shows in the DCTVU, it is the template for them all that makes me the most frustrated to date. Sure it could be from the fact it has run the longest or that it had the hardest time finding its voice but more likely still what vexes me about Arrow is what ultimately makes it great. When Arrow experiments, or more importantly, clings to its own rules, it creates waves of aww and gasp but also the knowledge I don’t get my way as a viewer all the time. Read more...

For three seasons Arrow was a very dark vigilante crime drama full of bleak Nihilism and little hope. But for 14 episodes, Oliver’s commitment to the light and hope of a hero has yielded new and fantastic results for his new life. But in his failures, since the dawn of the show’s first season, comes his hardest lessons. Now his earliest flaw of keeping secrets could change everything for the season’s direction as episode 15 “Taken” resets the Arrow Template that has been used to build so many successful shows since.

In what has been the best season of Arrow to date we have come a long way since the idyllic domestic life that Felicity and Ollie had made for themselves in the opener. In just 12 episodes prior to the latest installment we have seen Oliver and the gang put into practice the difficult lessons of trust and dependence on friends, forgiveness and redemption – not to mention a dirty battle with Damien Dahrk that has had more intrigue than an episode of House of Cards. The unnamed team members have been named and the new lighter tone for Arrow is working. Read more...
