Stars:  Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, Paul Blackthorne, Susanna Thompson, Willa Holland, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Manu Bennett, Colton Haynes, Celina Jade, Summer Glau, Caity Lotz, Bex Taylor-Klaus, Kevin Alejandro Writer: Ben Sokolowski & Beth Schwartz Director:  Guy Bee Network: The CW, airs Wednesday Nights Original Telecast: November 13, 2013 My criticisms of ARROW since this season began, (nay, since this series began), have fallen into two general categories.  They are, invariably: “X is too dark to belong in a TV show based on a comic book” or “Y involves too much comic book ridiculousness to belong in a TV […]Read On »
