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.

Trailers for most of the new fall series have been spread across the internet in the few weeks since the 2012 Upfronts and they always bring a mixed bag of thoughts and feelings with them. Here is a series of posts of my reactions to the new shows on network television for Fall 2012. These views are based on what I see in the trailers below and remember that I am picky with my thoughts.
Now we get to The CW. They seem to make some strange choices every year, and canceling a show that was rated higher than 4 of the ones they kept is just the latest in the long line of misfires from the network. I actually enjoy the network overall, even if I don’t watch many of the shows. They had One Tree Hill which is one of my all time favorites and I was hoping they would pick up the Aimee Teegarden-led The Selection, but while it wasn’t picked up yet, there is talk its still in contention after some reworking.

My Thoughts: This show looks dead on arrival. I don’t think little Meryl can carry a show on her own, and up against Happy Endings, Apt. 23, NCIS:LA, New Girl, The Mindy Project, and Matthew Perry – wow…I just don’t see it. The clip doesn’t do much to draw up interest either. I will probably not watch one episode.
