So I’m not sure if the Christmas episode is the end of the season or not, but I’ve watched all of Arrow that is available for now. And I like it. It started off strong and has stayed interesting. But it has also become network television: a lot of posing and posturing.
I guess I don’t understand television very well. I’m always surprised when a show with a coherent narrative arc transforms into a series of episodes worried mostly about creating business and punting the ball forward. In this particular case, it feels like the show is surprised it’s a success and is scrambling to figure out what’s next.
Still, I’m rooting for this show. So here’s hoping they use the break to get back on track.
