Arrow 1x15 + Elementary 1x11 + Revenge 2x09 Reviewed

A jewel thief named Dodger (James Callis of ‘Battlestar Galactica’) shows up to pull ‘Raffles’ like antics except his are boring. Felicity annoys. Oliver has more island flashbacks. Thea eats street meat and encounters Roy Harper (Colton Haynes of ‘Teen Wolf’ and his one facial expression).

Diggle asks out his sister in law, Oliver asks out McKenna Hall, Tommy Merlyn is nowhere to be seen and a lot of people were running around that damn island. Dodger meets a fence (Rekha Sharma of ‘Battlestar Galactica’) and Quentin Lance looks like he is about to stroke out.

There is yet more Windows 8 product placement, Roy Harper tells a sob story, Oliver bullies, Moira makes a call and Roy Harper bores. I didn’t like this ep. James Callis looked bored, Colton Haynes is a worse actor than Tom Welling and I just did not care.

Best Lines:
“You can untie me at any point by the way.”

“It’s only a recession for some people.”

“I’m not Robin Hood.”

Dirty Laundry
Teri a hotel manager has been stuffed into an industrial washing machine. Holmes is a jerk who won’t clean. There are revelations about Teri, her husband, their daughter Carly and their friend Mr Silver (Jake Weber of ‘Dawn of the Dead’ and ‘American Gothic’). This was okay even if the big twists did seem straight out of the 1980s.

Best Lines:
“Intercourse. Were you and Teri having it?”

“Have you ever been whore-fishing?”

“He’s doing his tantrum thing.”

There is bad CGI clay pigeon shooting, the Ryan brothers lurk like sex offenders, Daniel is vile and why are we supposed to care about the Initiative? Nolan’s former CFO Marco is a tool, Ashley is disgraced and Aiden annoys - why will he not just go away? Amanda and Jack’s son Carl has his christening. Declan and Jack finally get a clue about the Ryan brothers. Daniel becomes CEO and kicks Aiden to the curb. Nolan has a plan to get Daniel. Ashley and her slag shoes does a walk of shame. This was not good: why are TPTB wasting so much screen time on Aiden, the Ryan brothers and the Initiative. When will Emily start getting revenge again?

Best Lines:
“When will enough be enough?”

“They’re not your friends Jack.”
