    I never would have thought we would ever get a series about Ollie, and for it to be doing this well is really everything a GA fan could ask for! Well done, everyone at Arrow!

    *Applause* Well done, Arrow cast and crew! And a big hand to the CW for not being like those idjits at Fox and NBC who cancel anything and everything unless its Simpsons…..

    I am glad that there will be a third season to arrow. I can’t wait to see what kind of villain that will pop up in the series. I hope that Hal Jordan/Carol Ferris will pop in the new season

    This is awesome. Kind of hoping that Slade doesn´t die in S02. But let´s be realistic. Ollie will prevail. Roy saves the day and finally get himself under control the way he needs to. “Krixus” a.k.a Manu Bennett was an amazing casting choice for the role of Slade and I will enjoy every second that we have left of season 2. Looking forward to a third. =)

    Flash is coming, that Barry guy struck by radioactive lightning. I guess he would be The Flash. I’d be expecting that for season 3. GA should be in Justice League in cinemas.
