# 872 robbo.  TSCC never gets a mention.  Boo.  We know he was the cyborg under John's orders to transport the cold-box to an oil-rig way across the Pacific Ocean towards Australia.
Who can forget the name Queeg, also played by Humphrey Bogart, who played Lt. Cmdr. Philip Francis Queeg.   It was an extremely good film and highly recommended to view, as I believe the story of the U.S.S. Jimmy Carter, TSCC, written by Josh Friedman & Ashley Edward Miller, was probably inspired by this film. (1954)

The Caine Mutiny (1954)
When a US Naval captain shows signs of mental instability that jeopardizes the ship, the first officer relieves him of command and faces court martial for mutiny.

Until the close of the 2015-16 televisions season, I was active on The Cape wiki - - which expanded to include Arrow S1-4, The Flash S1-2, and Season 1 of Constantine, Vixen, Legends of Tomorrow and last of all Supergirl. I've since decided to focus more on my writing rather than chasing down every news item and piece of episode information for posting.

Over the last four years, I've collected a great number of images I just never had time to upload to the wiki. Resigned to the fact that I probably would never get them uploaded and organized as they should be, I instead created ZIP files of the images and uploaded them to my cloud site. Then I created a download page so people could download ZIP files containing images from the shows mentioned above, with the exception of Vixen of which few images have been promoted, and Supergirl which was a late addition to the site.

I'll only keep the zip files on my cloud site for one year. After that, if no one has downloaded them or begun posting images to the site, I don't care. I really won't. They'll be available for downloading until end of July 2017.

'Arrow' Casts Human Target: Wil Traval To Play Season 5 Role 

Arrow is introducing Human Target in Season 5, and producers have set their sights on Jessica Jones actor Wil Traval to play the DC Comics superhero. 

A professional bodyguard and master of disguise who assumes the identities of those targeted by assassins, the character (aka Christopher Chance) will appear in Episode 5 when he takes on a new client: Mayor Oliver Queen. 

A Human Target series, starring the aforementioned Valley, aired for two seasons on Fox from 2010-2011. ABC attempted its own Human Target series starring Rick Springfield in the 'early 90s, and that one had an even shorter shelf life: it was cancelled after just seven episodes.

Arrow returns Wednesday, Oct.5 at 8/7c, where it now leads into the new drama Frequency.

Lexa Doig Is Talia al Ghul In "Arrow"

Lexa Doig ("Stargate: SG-1," "Continuum") has been cast has Talia al Ghul in The CW and DC Entertainment's "Arrow" TV series.

The casting finally fills the last of the family line with Matt Nable having played immortal villain Ra's al Ghul in the third season and Katrina Law having taken on the role of his other daughter Nyssa who has recurred on the series since the second season.

This incarnation of Talia is described as: "worldly and cultured, and an elite warrior who doesn't pick sides but rather creates her own. "Doig will appear in multiple episodes starting with the tenth of the current fifth season.

A young version of the character appeared briefly in an episode of "DC's Legends of Tomorrow".

Good casting, at least she looks the part. I remember her in the sci-fi series 'Continuum' as Liber8 member Sonya Valentine, Lexa should be pretty cool when she arrives, mind you episode 10 surely that must be close to the mid-season premiere?

Lexa Doig attends CTV Upfronts 2016 at Sony Centre for the Performing Arts on June 8, 2016 in Toronto, Canada.

‘Arrow’ 100th episode retrospective: Five decisions the show should regret, at

3. You had Summer Glau, and… – You didn’t really do anything interesting with her. Out of all of the show’s recurring guest stars the former “Firefly” star is one of our favorites, but it didn’t feel like the show figured out what they wanted to do with her until close to the end of season 2. By that point, she was barely a flash in the pan to a larger Deathstroke story.

Sad but true!

# 879 Ah Chris.  I thought this story was going to be about too much going on in the show.  I think they should keep it a little more simple.

I too was discussing this with a fan only a few days ago.  One minute she was in the series Arrow then all of a sudden a big guy chops her with an axe or a sword and that's the end of her.  We never even saw her meet her final end - she was out of sight.  What happened there?  Did she need to get out of the show quickly?   They could have at least given us some blood squirting high in the air. (Not real blood... obviously).
