Eoline scoop on Felicity.

Quote
Hilary: Please tell me there is hope for Oliver and Felicity on Arrow!
Sorry, but Felicity will be spending some Q.T. with Grant Gustin's Barry Allen, who is harboring quite the crush on everyone's favorite I.T. girl (as well he should). "Barry likes Felicity, and he should because the characters are incredibly similar, and they play off of one another," Stephen Amell says. "We see instances where Diggle will finish Oliver's sentences, and we see the same type of dynamic because both Diggle and Oliver are soldiers, and Barry and Felicity are both kind of nerdy, and are interested in the same random things, so it's interesting to see Barry and Felicity take a shine to one another."

Sky TV in the UK, usually shows repeats of episodes like Arrow approximately 3 times throughout the year.  So my opportunity to watch it again will be there.  (Mind you, I have it recorded anyway).

I've been asked an interesting question in an Arrow board, this one:

Quote
Do you think Summer is from the League, or sent by Merlin to take over Queen Consolidated? She is in the book and as a successful ice queen, would attract someone like Malcolm Merlin.

My first thought is that Isabel Rochev's story arc is completely disconnected from the Malcolm Merlyn or League of Assassins's story. So far, the writers have not hinted in interviews or in previous episodes that she is connected to them in any way. Of course there's always the possibility of a twist, like for Sebastian Blood but I don't think it will happen.

Interesting theory there could be a some sort of twist, but honestly I don`t think so that she is connected with the League, I`m more incline to go with the Queen story, in some way or form connected to the Queens but even that`s just guess work, but I think that`s the story I`m pinning my hopes on I think it would very interesting if Isabel, was related in some sort of way to the Queen family, but who knows their is so many twists and turns at the moment on Arrow that`s the beauty of the show, such a fantastic series which makes everybody crying out for more.

I'm wavering between blood relative and non-blood relative.  (Perhaps nowadays we should say DNA relative?)

(I'm sure that a lot of history books and science books need to be ditched since I was a child).

People are still asking why Isabel Rochev is in the 'baddie book'.  What could a lovely, butter wouldn't melt, lil' lady have possibly done that is so bad?

That is the question.

Now I know why they hired Caity Lotz in action-packed superhero drama Arrow.

Agents vs. Arrows: Comparing Two Superhero Shows

Quote
There are two superhero shows on network TV right now: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Arrow on the CW.  As Arrow embarks on its second season and SHIELD prepares to launch its November sweeps episodes, I thought it might be a good time to take a look at these two shows and see where they succeed and where they fail.

#400 Here is the problem with S.H.I.E.L.D.
In the magazine report (which you linked us to Chris), I have only seen the 1st episode because I was never interested enough to watch more because all I could think about was the Criminal Minds team riding through the skies to their next assignment.
I kept thinking of the nerdy early James Bond films with all the gadgets.  I appreciate that the gadgets are modern but I find some of them to be outrageous.  Their leader man (don't know his name), wears a suit that appears to make him look very very dated.

After watching some of the behind the scenes choreographed fights for Summer Glau, I could see immediately by Joss Whedon's face that he is in awe of her talents and probably as glad as a young horny guy who accidentally parachutes in to a harem.
I believe Summer made Whedon in the film Serenity.
He does not seem to have any new ideas or able to use his actors/actresses effectively enough to create what could have been a good show.
Kudos to the Arrow team for giving us the humanly-wow-element in the series.
I only hope they use Summer effectively as time goes on, as an actor/actress is only as good as the series that they are in.

Here in the UK we have some good acting talent but IMO, but all they have to choose from are soaps or repeats of done-before costume dramas.

I'm not a fan of Dr Who, it is too outrageous for my tastes.  If only a British Writer & Director could come up with something a bit more gritty, not so much like men in rubber heads looking like flies etc, not necessarily blood and gore but time-travel, non-OTT mystery, with all the anx and excellent storylines of TSCC, then I would be the happiest person in the world. (Especially if SG was asked to play a lead roll as a cyborg).

Excerpt from an Arrow 2x04 review at tvovermind:

Summer Glau just continues to get stronger, but I feel that we need to have a huge Isobel episode soon because we still don’t know much about her. I did love her interaction with Felicity, though because it’s always hilarious to see a super-serious character with a more lighten character.

Isabel episode? Hell yeah!

Excerpt from an Arrow 2x04 review at mania.com

Two things I did not care for this week was the drama involving Laurel getting pulled over for a DUI and her unnecessary drama.  Is she taking over the angst role from Thea?  The other is the use of Summer Glau as Isabel Rochev.  Her sole purpose seems to be nothing more than chastising Oliver about how he is running Queen Consolidated.  So far her character has been completely useless and not what I expected at all.

Patience is a virtue. Isabel Rochev's backstory will be revealed in due time.
