Arrow Review: Lone Gunmen

I am excited to get the chance to review The CW’s new hit show Arrow weekly for Voice of TV.  I was excited to watch this show before it premiered and it has not disappointed me yet. It’s unlike anything on TV and I’m happy to see The CW move in this direction.

A top-notch episode that delves deeper into what we already know brings out more of what’s to come for Oliver Queen in ‘Arrow’ 1.03: Lone Gunmen.

‘The Amazing Race’ Recap: Chill Out, Freak

We begin the 5th leg of The Amazing Race in Bangledesh, finding out that James’, of James & Abba, dad has stage 4 cancer back at home.  He says its a new kind of motivation for the race.

James & Abba depart first after last weeks Fast Forward, and head out to the Jatrabari Market. I am not sure how I feel that the teams are not going to an airport right away for another leg.  Sometimes it is nice for the teams to catch back up as it makes the challenges more interesting.

Talking with ‘Law & Order: SVU’ Creator & EP Dick Wolf

Law & Order: SVU celebrates reaching milestone episode 300 this Wednesday, October 24th by tackling a subject that brings back memories 13 years in the making. Creator and Executive Producer Dick Wolf recently spoke with the media about SVU and the 300th episode.

I had the opportunity to ask Wolf this question:

What the current season has in store for everyone’s favorite detective, Olivia Benson, played by Emmy-winner Mariska Hargitay.

“I think that what you’re going to see is Olivia going through an evolving sense of who she is, what her job is, where she is going.

I mean one of my favorite scenes of the recent past on any of the shows was the last scene in this one with Mariska and Katy [Kathryn Erbe] because if you have the knowledge, that I know a lot of the fans do, about the intricacies of the back story and the emotional relationships with both Mariska and Katy and Chris [Christopher Meloni] and Vincent [D’Onofrio] I thought it was fabulous.”

To read on about the rest of the call, please see Talking with ‘Law & Order: SVU’ Creator and Executive Producer Dick Wolf, and as always visit the Voice of TV for all of your TV reviews.
