The TV show Arrow has a special place in my heart because it reminds me of my freshman year of college. I would watch the episode the day after at my desk in my tiny dorm room with some headphones on. I was a HUGE fan of Arrow back when season #1 aired. Season #2 is still my all time favorite season because of Deathstroke. Unfortunately, I really think the quality of Arrow has gone down to the point where I’m done watching this show. I wanted to rant about it in one blog post and maybe there are other disappointed DC fans like myself.
One problem I have with this current season on Arrow is the lack of a cohesive team. What worked with Arrow was the team and how they worked together. Now that White Canary is on Legends of Tomorrow, Laurel is dead *not really though..?* and Wild Dog has split off to form his own tribe, Team Arrow isn’t the same.
I also feel the writing on Arrow is not that great. If I were to re-watch Arrow, I bet I can find a lot of characters who didn’t have a proper story line. The one character arc I can think of at the top of my head is the Huntress. She could have been great if she was written better in the series.
It pains me to stop watching the show, but it honestly hasn’t been enjoyable to even watch it week to week. Why am I wasting my time watching a show I don’t really like when there’s so many good TV shows to watch!? I will admit I do still like the Flash, but that’s the only CW DC superhero show I still watch.
Who else is fed up with Arrow? If you’re still a fan, make me a case in the comments on why I need to keep watching other than Stephen Amell being the nicest person in the entire world.
