4/5 100% Arrow: Season 8 - Starling City (TV Episode) It's no surprise that the pacing is quicker... But even with that pacing, it's still an enjoyable hour that hits the big moments, reveals, and homages with just enough time to somewhat process it before being faced with the next. - Tell-Tale TV EDIT

2.75/5 50% Arrow: Season 7 - Confessions (TV Episode) The premise of "Confessions" is solid, but there's something about the timing of it, and what we ultimately get out of it that feels like there's something left to be desired. - Tell-Tale TV EDIT

3/5 91% Arrow: Season 7 - Emerald Archer (TV Episode) The hour does a good job of (finally) honoring Oliver Queen's sacrifices and accomplishments as the Green Arrow. I just wish it also honored the other aspects of the show that I've loved so much. - Tell-Tale TV EDIT

3/5 100% Arrow: Season 7 - Unmasked (TV Episode) "Unmasked" makes for an uneven hour that still gets to the end of the first half of the season with a few moments that set up where some of our favorites stand in their relationships and hinting at what's to come for some new additions. - Tell-Tale TV EDIT

4/5 100% Arrow: Season 7 - Crossing Lines (TV Episode) Oliver's arc so far has been interesting because he's so determined to do what needs to be done.
