Did You Know?


Cisco calls Oliver's hideout an " Arrowcave" and asks if there is an "Arrowmobile", much to Oliver and Felicity's chagrin. In the years when the Green Arrow comic book was written as simply another copy of "Batman", Oliver Queen did actually have an "Arrow Cave", an "Arrow Car", an "Arrow Plane" and other arrow themed vehicles and gadgets, much like his Gotham City counterpart. The cave still appears occasionally in the modern era comics. See more »


When Lyla is shooting at Harkness with a hand gun that looks like a 9mm with a clip that holds about 15 rounds. She fires at least 23 times (maybe more) without reloading. See more »


Roy Harper: Since when did we start selling admission to the Arrow Cave?
Oliver Queen: It's...

Oliver Queen: Do you see what you've done?

Forced and kinda stupid
1 April 2016 | by born_naughtySee all my reviews

To start, I have not seen a single episode of The Flash, yet. Maybe if I did, more of this episode would make sense. However, what is obvious to me is that the styles of both shows simply don't match. When the two new guys join the "Arrow cave" they act like comic book fans going to a convention. Quotes like "this is all so freaking awesome" really don't fit the darker style of Arrow. In part, that's what this episode was about. Some of the discussions between Arrow and Flash are exactly about the differences between the two cities. But for that story to progress the writers made Arrow do stuff that he hasn't done before in other episodes: torture bad guys. Another thing that doesn't make much sense is that if Flash is so powerful and Starling City is so much more violent as Central city then why doesn't Flash just clean house in Starling? If they used Oliver's strategic insight and Flash's superior superpowers together wouldn't Starling be cleaned up a lot faster? Litterly. So not only does this episode feel forced and the styles clash simply doesn't fit, it really hurts the credibility of the rest of this show. For the record though, I loved the first two seasons of Arrow and from what I've seen I think I might like The Flash as well. Just saying that this review does not reflect on either show as a whole.
