Incredible work by Stephen Amell in this week’s Arrow. He’s never been better.
A fun episode! The Barry double was barely used, yet used really well. Mostly for laughs and (maybe) to open the door on a future romantic storyline? There were some strong scenes for Eddie, who has really grown as me as a character since they brought him into the fold. The cliffhanger was magnificent. 9/10
Cynthia Belliveau. Two good stories here, which are dark and perfectly complimentary. It’s refreshing to see a supporting character take center-stage and Gary Farmer does a terrific job as the haunted Stonetree. The b-story (Nick’s) isn’t as satisfying as the main one, but it helps keep the episode moving forward. And the main story, while good, is much to straightforward to sustain a full episode on it’s own. 8/10
Review of: Forever Knight
Mary Steenburgen, Jeremy Davies. Lot of story development here. Some of what happens is hysterically funny, some of the twists and turns are fascinating to watch, some of the violence is brutal and difficult to watch, and some of the confrontations are incredibly satisfying and clever. All of it is terrific. There’s a feeling here that momentum is growing towards the end of the season. 10/10
Review of: Justified
Christian Walker, Deena Pilgrim, Johnny Royalle, Krispin Stockley and Calista Secor are fast becoming my favourite TV characters.
