Arrows worst episode to date
28 April 2016 | by sinatrakennedySee all my reviews

This was too painful to watch. The soapy over emotional scenes are written for experienced actors and yet Arrow continues to put its worst actors in these emotional scenes. The writing and acting in this episode were simply awful, and at times I was wondering if the writers literally have given up on ARROW. I've been a fan of shows on the CW since Smallville, and I'm use to the silly sappy over hyped romances etc... Arrow was awesome in its first season. Now? It's a pale shadow of what once was. The fight choreography looked like it was done by a 9 year old with mental problems. There is a fence climbing scene by a female character that is supposed to be a gymnast and she looks like an idiot even walking! So so bad. Arrows stunts in the alley (so studio propy it's hilarious, even a blanket to cover up space on the alley walls is used) are the worst yet and only serve to give parkour a bad name. Let's hope this was a unique episode, because a few more like this and I'm giving up. I'll stick to CW's FLASH (top 10 best shows on TV, along with GOTHEM). Enough with Felicity, enough with the bad fight choreography, enough with the wooden stoic "emo" scenes and let's get back to introducing NEW VILLAINS, because DARK sucks. Merlin has been reduced to a joke.

I could go on and... It's simply a really bad episode.
