Since we last left our heroes, everything has changed. Team Arrow have lost two of their core members; their home have been renamed Star City; and a new and evil group have attacked their city. Once again, we go into that dark beginning that we also got in season three, but not as dark. There is no character dying in the first episode this time around. We get the addition of Neal McDonough as Damien Darhk who were heavily teased during the last season and he is incredible. He plays this role so well. He plays this character as a very dark (no pun intended) and evil man, yet still a caring and loving father who just wants to make this world a better place for his family. His ways to do that, however, may not be the most reasonable. Oliver Queen finally throws aside his former alter-ego and takes on the name of the Green Arrow and that is something that I have been wanting to see ever since the show started back in 2012. The performances are great once again, especially John Barrowman and Paul Blackthorne who should really be considered the "veteran" actors of the show so far. They both give emotional performances when it's needed. The thing that bothered me this time around was the great amount of filler episodes that could have easily been thrown aside. I didn't enjoy those episodes, but when the show focused on the main storylines, they are really making magic. This is of course the season where we lose Laurel Lance and someone would say that it was about time, but I was actually kind of sad to let Katie Cassidy go. I hope she finds something else to do. This was a very good season that could have been better if they had focused on the main story.
This is a show that continues to evolve. It has gone a very long way from the first season and we continue to see these characters go into some different corners and some different parts of themselves that we will hopefully see some more of in the future. Once again, we have The Flash going up against another speedster, but this time it's someone who is bigger and badder than Reverse-Flash. He is up against Zoom from the altenate dimension: Earth-2. They manage to get pull the season together beautifully and we get another season filled with compelling villains and great twists. The performances was great once again and Tom Cavanagh is really one of the best actors on television right now. Teddy Sears also gives a great performance as Zoom and he can be really scared at times and that is because of the combination of Sears movements in the suit and the awesome, yet incredibly horrifying voice of Tony Todd. I didn't like Keiynan Lonsdale's performance. He really just seemed dead at some points and would act like he didn't really give a damn. Also, some of the villains are really horribly written and I couldn't wait for them to die. After one hell of a great season, I can't wait for season three.
I was one of the few people who really enjoyed the first season. I thought it used everything that it possibly could to secure a memorable spot on the list of great TV shows. Unfortunately, the second season is not as good. The first half of the second season was a blast and I really enjoyed it. Theo Galavan was a very intriguing villain and the entire subplot about the Order of St. Dumas really was a great story line. The second half of the season, however, was very weak to me. I didn't like the entire Indian Hill premise and, even though I enjoyed B.D. Wong's portrayal of Hugo Strange, I didn't think the character was necessary as a part of the show. Some of the episodes of the second half that went back to some of the things we saw in the first half, however, were without a doubt the best. We got to see a very cool and dangerous version of Azrael and we got to see some more of my favorite character from the first season: Fish Mooney. Once again, I continue to be a fan of the show and I can't wait for season 3.
We finally get that female role model that we have asked for. Someone who girls of all ages can look up to. Someone who can really kick ass on a big scale while protecting our world from extra-terrestrial threats. Unfortunately, that is actually one of the only things this show really nails, because their are some episodes which are just snoozefests. Many of the episodes are so incredibly boring that I actually considered to stop watch the show. It really does a good job with its heroes and Melissa Benoist and Chyler Leigh gives some incredible performances and really plays well off each other. The villains, however, aren't really that good at all. Non is the most underdeveloped villain I have ever seen on TV and I really hope that they really up the ante in season 2.
This is a show that has a lot of flaws. It constantly fails when it comes to the emotional parts and at times you don't really care about where these characters are going. However, it really has a lot of episodes where you can feel the story and you can understand - taking the circumstances - why the character's are taking the difficult choices they are. There are a lot of characters in this movie and many of them are character's that we have seen in "Arrow" and "The Flash." The performances are - for the most part - great in this movie, but the performances given by Victor Garber and Wentworth Miller are really great and memorable as they come to terms with things that happened in their past and things that will happen in their future. The chemistry of the actors are also great and they really play well of each other, even though the scenes or episodes aren't alway great, the actors does really good jobs on their part. This show had a lot of flaws, but I'm still really excited for season 2 and the introduction of the Justice Society of America.
This was a really good season. It managed to be a great followup to that amazing second season that we got last year and it also managed to get us emotionally enthralled in the entire season all the way through. Once again we find our agents and this time around they are searching for the newly created Inhumans while trying to fend off the threat that is Grant Ward and his newly re-established Hydra. But this season is also about the main characters as we had to say goodbye to a lot of them as the show went along. We said goodbye to Hunter and Morse who left to do their own show (which they won't really do anyway); we said goodbye to Lincoln who sacrificed himself to save the entire world; and last but not least, we said goodbye to a fan-favorite throgh all three seasons Grant Ward, who also bit the dust before being the host of a dangerous Inhuman called Hive. The performances in this season was great and I must say that Brett Dalton really impressed me this time around. It almost feels like he was born to play this character, even though the actor just seems so likeable. All-in-all: a great season with some great moments and some great supporting characters, both the returning and the new ones.
A great introduction to something that would take the world with storm. This is one of the greatest shows that has ever been produced at 20th Television. There are so many different plots going on in this season, but they are all very good and you will never be disappointed or taken out of the show, because it's just so intense and breathtaking. The performances of Kiefer Sutherland and Dennis Haysbert are some of the best acting of have ever seen from these two actors, who are both really good and experienced actors, but there are no doubt that this show really had some impact on their career. It doesn't shock anybody that Jack Bauer would end up as a national treasure who would continue to safe his country for many years to come.
The third seasons follow the same great road as the second season did and the show continues to become better and better. Mads Mikkelsen is, once again, reminding us of the reason why he is one of the best actors ever. The thing has been an irritation for me in the previous seasons have been the supporting cast, and unfortunately some of the characters in this season are Freddie Lounds - again - and the new character Reba McClane who could have easily been cut out of this season and I wouldn't have given two s**ts. Mason Verger is again present in this season, this time played by Joe Anderson, and he is actually pretty good. And then we have the magnificent Richard Armitage as Francis Dolarhyde, who kills it in all of his episodes. This is also the first season to have Gillian Anderson as a series regular and she is also pretty good.
This is a far superior season to the first one. Both acting wise, but also when you look at the way it was filmed and all the very trippy imagery in between. Mads Mikkelsen is better than ever before and this season really throws the focus more towards his character than Will Graham who was arguably the main focus of the first season. This season has much better supporting characters and we are finally introduced to the mentally ill Mason Verger, played brilliantly by Michael Pitt, before he face was completely mutilated. The season finale is probably some of the best television I have watched in a long time and that is something that I would not hesitate to watch again.
Mads Mikkelsen is one of the best actors ever. And with him as the incredibly scary Hannibal Lector, we are truly in for a ride. This is an incredibly start for a series that will probably only get better and better as it goes on. With great supporting characters like Hugh Dancy's Will Graham and Laurence Fishburne's Jack Crawford, this season always gives me something to look forward for every week. However, there are some characters in the show that truly irritates me, and those are Abigail Hobbs and Freddie Lounds. Those are some characters that I could definitely live without. And unfortunately, these characters fill a little bit more than they actually should in the show, so it's far from a great beginning, but it surely has potential to become something memorable.
This is a truly great television series. We follow the young Barry Allen, played by the very likeable Grant Gustin, who were originally introduced in the second season of "Arrow." He is one of the best main characters ever in a show and he is incredibly lovable from the very beginning. It features some incredible villains and it don't fall into the same hole as "Arrow" where they kill off every villain they face off against. The many memorable villains like Leonard Snart, Gorilla Grodd and, of course, Reverse-Flash are incredibly great additions to the Arrowverse. This show brings so much greatness to the age of television that we are so lucky to live in today.
It's very hard to live up to the brilliance that we got in the second season, and while the third season isn't as good as the second, it's just as interesting, if not more. With new characters like the very likeable Ray Palmer, played by former Superman actor Brandon Routh, and the very evil Ra's al Ghul, played by Matt Nable, this show adds something special that actually lacked a little bit from previous seasons. The show starts out in a very dark way and it continues to the very end. John Barrowman returns for real this season and every time he is on the screen, he completely shines and he is actually the character who probably have the biggest character arc in this entire season, and that comes from a season where EVERYBODY have a character arc! Even though this isn't the perfect follow-up to season two, it's still a really good one.
The second season of "Arrow" really turned away from the darker tone from the first season. Oliver doesn't kill anymore and I think that fits the show very well. We get the threat from the League of Assassins who is a well-known criminal organization in the DC Comics, however, it seems like we have to wait for the next season to see what they can really do. We get the threat from Slade Wilson, who is one of the best villains on television ever. We were heavily teased about the mysteries of the island Lian Yu in the first season, and even though we didn't really get that many answers to all the secrets of the island, we still got some new information about this place that is definitely going to fit into later seasons.
The second season of the show goes in a completely different direction than the first season did, which probably leaned a little too much on the MCU movies. However, this season is completely it's own and it's really enjoyable and it has so many new cool directions that was just perfect for the show. The Hydra threat that was started in the first season is also a big part of this season and it's even better than the first season. Hydra feels so much more threatening this time around and we never really know what their ultimate goal really is. However, when we are introduced to the Inhumans, this show finally became one of my favorite shows on television, something that I really wanted to happen ever since the first episode of the season. We get the usual cast, with the add of Nick Blood who is really great at playing Lance Hunter, who is kind of a really likeable asshole. This season is clearly the direction that this show needs to go and the direction that I hope will continue over in season three.
This show takes some time to really get to the point of everything. The first couple of episodes are really just there to be there, and I really hate shows that have such episodes, which is, basically, every show on air right now. However, when this show really gets to those episodes that can be used to something, it's really finds it's footwork. Those episodes are extremely good and luckily, that's really the majority of this season. After the events of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" happened, it of course had it's effect on the rest of Marvel Cinematic Universe, which also includes this show. The performances from Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen and Brett Dalton are the highlights of this season and then of course the frequent guest appearances made by many different stars like Saffron Burrows, J. August Richards, Ruth Negga and, of course, Bill Paxton.
This season is really a huge step down from the first season, but that doesn't mean that the season isn't good. It takes some time to get used to the new cast but Taylor Kitsch, Rachel McAdams and Colin Farrell are really good in the show and their characters are really relatable; maybe even more relatable than the characters we got in the first season even though the acting was WAY BETTER. Vince Vaughn stands out and I actually love his performance in this show, because you never know if he is actually a good guy, or if he really is the villain. I think I'm probably looking a lot more positive on this show than many other people do, but I am also able to look away from the fact that this is a completely new setting and if you do that, this is actually a very good season.
This is one of the greatest series' I have seen in a long a time. This season is made completely with love and have some brilliant writing by Nic Pizzolatto and brilliant directing by Cary Fukunaga. This is such a dark show, but it really helps when it comes to pulling in the viewer, because in many of the scenes, you really can't look away from the screen. The performances from Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson are un-describable. They play so well off each other and off the other characters in the show, which consists mostly of Michelle Monaghan, Michael Potts and Tory Kittles. If anyone doesn't like this season, you have either not seen it or just don't like McConaughey or Harrelson and if that's the case; what's wrong with you?!
This is a very dark television show, based on a pretty light character from the DC comicbooks. But I actually think that it works for this character, because I always saw Oliver Queen as a character who would turn out to be incredibly dark, and in this show he is pretty dark. This show really brings on the suspense and, for several episodes, we are in awe of what's happening on the screen. The creators of this show really have guts to do a lot of different things with the many characters that they introduced on the show. It has a very compelling villain in John Barrowman's Malcolm Merlyn and he is a pretty well-written character and you understand his motives. Sometimes, however, the show falls into that usual hole which is The CW's melodramatic moments, which can be extremely hard to get through. However, the show still manages to get the audience back right in with it's well-choreographed action scenes and brilliant performances from very talented actors and actresses.
When you have a show that is set in the same universe as the great Batman mythos that we read about in the comic-books, you really need to get the scent of Gotham City and the criminality real, and this first season truly does. With heroes that really feel real and villains that truly are scary and threatening, the show managed to bring forth the soul that the city had in the comics. Where the show is at its strongest, is when it comes with the tie-ins to many of the villains from the comic-book and even the new ones like Fish Mooney, played brilliantly by Jada Pinkett Smith. Where the show lacks, however, is with the tie-ins to Bruce Wayne who wants to find his parent's killer. That is by far the worst parts of the show, but luckily, with brilliant writing and great characters, it always managed to get back on a good and well-formed track.
