    people need to watch arrow. its a fun show. its a bit silly, I wish they had cast a better oliver, but its worth the watch. if anything to laugh at it in jest.

    I enjoy Arrow, but it’s a stretch at times how he became this super educated, well trained, technologically saavy on a deserted island. So I watch Arrow with the same attitude as 24. The fact that Jack Bauer never ate, slept, or went to the bathroom in 24 hours was a stretch.

    Arrow is entertaining and I do not take it so literally. Just go with it.

      i think as time goes by, we’ll learn more about the back story. like, when did he learn to speak fluent russian? among many other questions.

    The ratings for Supernatural seem unreliable seeing as the CW
    Isn’t airing anything on tv. I have to watch it online. Ratings can’t be accurate.

    Thanks NBC for nothing!!! Instead of giving ANIMAL PRACTICE some more time to gain an audience as a lot of us asked of them – they cancelled it and then the ratings went up!!!! They keep this stupid low rating Guys with Kids on which is doing WORSE but cancelled that show. SHAME ON THEM – some of us think they made a very BIG mistake!!!

    I thought Arrow and Supernatural both had strong episodes last night. I guess ratings suggest others didn’t agree. I’m really digging Arrow.
