Star Season 1 Episode 4 Review: Code of Silence

Everyone knows Atlanta boasts one of the American South's biggest music scenes, full of exciting new acts looking to make names for themselves at clubs and festivals. But, did you know that a similar scene also exists for hair?

On Star Season 1 Episode 4, the girls performed at a huge hair show in Atlanta, where Miss Bruce was competing on behalf of Carlotta's salon.

Miss Bruce and the other stylists took turns creating looks onstage in front of a panel of judges to see who would be crowned the winner. I was not aware that live hair-styling with musical accompaniment was a competitive event!

This episode featured a very special guest in the form of Gladys Knight. Gladys appears to be following in the footsteps of Naomi Campbell's Louboutins, at least in regards to Lee Daniels television dramas; both previously guest-starred on Empire before popping up on Star.

A DC TV universe timeline guide: Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl

Robbert de Koeijer Sep 23, 2016

Wondering how all the DC universe TV spin-offs, crossovers and webseries fit together? We have the answer...

In October 2012, Us network The CW launched the first season of Arrow, after wrapping up no fewer than ten seasons of Superman origin show Smallville a year before. Arrow was a completely new take on the DC Comics character Green Arrow, in a new universe that had nothing to do with Smallville or its version of Oliver Queen/Green Arrow. The series proved quite the hit for The CW, and a second season renewal inevitably followed. In season two, we were introduced to forensic scientist Barry Allen, better known to DC Comics readers as The Flash. Arrow got a third season, The Flash got his own TV show with great success, and the live action shared DC Comics universe on TV was born. And with it the question: how does it all fit together?

WWE Smackdown 09/06/15 Review – Aj Styles and Dean Ambrose face off, The Usos vs. American Alpha and more

Shaun Eddleston reviews the September 6th edition of Smackdown Live…

We are now merely days away from the first Smackdown-branded PPV, Backlash, which is still currently a 5 match event. This week’s Smackdown Live promised to push the hype surrounding those matches; Who would progress on to the Tag Team Tournament Finals? Will Randy Orton cave in to Bray Wyatt’s mindgames? What will happen when Aj Styles and Dean Ambrose come face to face in a ring before their upcoming title match?

Women’s Championship Forum

To kick things off, SmackDown general manager Daniel Bryan welcomed to the ring Becky Lynch, Nikki Bella and the other women who are set to face off in the Six-Pack Challenge at Backlash.

Arrow season 4 episode 19 review: Canary Cry

One of Arrow's characters has been terribly misserved by the show, as the latest season four episode demonstrates...

This review contains spoilers.

4.19 Canary Cry

I hate to say it, but the Arrow writers appear to have a fundamental misunderstanding of who Laurel Lance was. Not only have they written her off the show in the middle of her arc but, when crafting an episode pitched as being about the aftermath of her death, they've handed us Canary Cry.

We start with the first of many flashbacks taking place directly after Tommy's death in the season one finale, but before Oliver flew to Lian Yu to hide from his feelings. That he didn't go directly there feels out of character, but then it's not the only thing about these scenes that's going to bother me.

We're tricked into thinking it's Laurel's funeral we're watching, but instead Laurel

Major spoilers as Arrow season 4 finally reveals which character winds up in that grave...

This review contains spoilers.

4.18 11:59

I'm going to talk about Laurel Lance for a bit, because apparently it'll be my last chance to.

A lot of people dislike Laurel, which is an improvement on near-blanket hatred during the first couple of seasons of the show. But for three years the writers stuck with her, they developed her and they pushed her towards becoming the Black Canary 2.0 with admirable patience.

But there was always a sense that she was one of the audience's least favourite members of Team Arrow and, once Sara had been resurrected and Laurel had become comfortable with her new crime-fighting identity, the producers lost interest. She's been through a lot in four and a half years, but a lot of that tension had admittedly been resolved a while ago.

My personal feelings aside,

Arrow season 4 episode 17 review: Beacon Of Hope

Arrow season 4 delivers a genuinely entertaining episode full of what fans want to see more of from the show...

This review contains spoilers.

4.17 Beacon Of Hope

Fan sentiment towards Arrow isn't at its best right now, with many feeling that last week's Olicity-heavy outing was a demonstration of how skewed the storylines have been this year. Apparently the show has taken the complaint that it's so much darker than The Flash, Legends Of Tomorrow and Supergirl as an excuse to up the romance quota and, when your only big relationship involves two of the team's core members, that's an issue.

So here we are with Felicity no longer part of Team Arrow, a move that pretty much nobody wanted and one that poses the question – what are the writers going to do with her now? This is a series about the Green Arrow, hence the name, so

Vixen makes her live-action debut in the latest Arrow season 4 episode, which shows Oliver making the same mistakes time and again...

This review contains spoilers.

4.15 Taken

Heroes can't be happy, especially if they're the 'dark', 'avengey' type of hero. Television just can't cope with happy couples and, in addition, audiences for superhero shows expect a certain amount of drama. Forbidden love, girls in refrigerators or other insurmountable obstacles, whatever the writers come up with we can be sure that, if the main character is happy for even five minutes, it all has to come crashing down.

The difference on Arrow is that the hero's unhappiness is almost totally his doing. For the most part, the show's writers have done a great job writing Oliver in that his negative actions (excluding season three's Ra's storyline) always feel in character. He's guarded and damaged and imbued with a sense

The question of who's in that flash-forward grave rears its head again in the latest episode of Arrow season 4...

This review contains spoilers.

4.14 Code Of Silence

Secrets. Everyone on this show is keeping secrets from people they love and everyone is doing it for the other person's own good. If Greg Berlanti shows have one trademark, it's that. On this week's Arrow it was Quentin's turn to hide his connection with Hive from Donna, a move that at least sparked the correct reaction from her.

The mystery of who's in that grave is getting more and more pressing as we move through the season, and Quentin has long been one of the prime suspects. He's already in Damien Darhk's crosshairs and his death would have a pretty significant impact on a lot of the cast, but besides that he's also been more disposable than a Diggle or a Felicity.

Arrow Season 4: 17 Wtf Moments From ‘Code Of Silence’

The CW

With Code of Silence, Arrow again turned its attention to the day-to-day Oliver Queen whilst the Green Arrow side of the character took a bit of a backseat. This latest episode instead largely centred on Ollie’s mayoral campaign as he looks to go up against Ruve Adams, the wife of uber-rogue Damien Darhk.

New to the scene in order to help out Ruve are The Demolition Team, joining the show in order to help cause chaos and destruction in Star City. Whilst Team Arrow and Captain Lance do their best to take down this new threat, we also get brought up to speed with Damien as he now knows Oliver Queen’s biggest secret: that he has a young son called William.

Elsewhere, the Oliver and Felicity wedding looms large, whilst Quentin Lance and Donna Smoak’s relationship hits some problems in a Wtf-filled episode of Arrow.

Arrow Season 4 Episode 14 Review – ‘Code of Silence’

Jessie Robertson reviews the fourteenth episode of Arrow season four, ‘Code of Silence’…

The answer to most questions is always “Maybe less glitter.”

It feels like a whole lot happened this week on Arrow. It centered around the Arrow crew trying to pin down Damien Darhk as his wife, Ruve, enters the Star City mayoral campaign. With such a bold transition to a new character, questions arise whether or not we’ll get a back story as to how that marriage exactly works. At the beginning of the episode, the Arrow crew track her down to a parking lot and within seconds, literally, her car disappears and she steps from out of the dark. Does she possess powers of any kind? So far she’s pretty bland but I feel there could be an undercurrent of evil in her.

The campaign, in itself, is treated as the backdrop of this season,

Arrow Season 4 Episode 14 Review: “Code of Silence”

After a huge and intense episode last week with Nyssa al Ghul and Malcolm Merlyn’s war coming to an end, this week’s Arrow focuses more heavily on Oliver’s candidacy. We get introduced to the Demolition Team, a group of baddies that actually comes from the comic books which was a surprise to me, but I’m always up for getting introduced to obscure comic characters. It was neat seeing X-Men’s Daniel Cudmore make his debut in the DC TV Universe as Jackhammer, which I don’t think had been previously announced until his appearance in the trailer last week. Even though that team came from Damien,
