I'll be honest, Grant Gustin (despite being 23 in real life) looks about 18. When I first learned he had been cast as Barry Allen, I thought he was going to have a tough time pulling off the whole "forensic scientist" thing. Making him an assistant was a great move by the writers, they realize he's not foolin' anyone with that baby face haha.
That said, I had much less of an issue with the Felicity/Barry pairing. They're much closer in age than Felicity and Oliver are, besides brains are a turn on no? Why would Felicity not find this young guy attractive? Sure, it all happened a little too quickly, but I do think he's a better match for her than Oliver is... (runs for cover, the Olicity shippers are definitely going to want my head for that comment LOL)
Oliver did nothing but stare at that photo of Laurel for five years on the island. He credits her for his survival. I don't think all that setup on the writers part will be wasted. There's an endgame for Ollie/Laurel, whether we fans like her or not. Honestly, I hope they find a way to make Laurel likeable and give her more interesting storylines.
These last few episodes have been really cool, though I still have little interest in the "Alpha Pack" storyline. I'm ready for Season 3B in 2014 to kick off a new story.
As far as the blue eyes, I understood the same thing, they turned blue when they took an innocent life. Still, that doesn't explain Jackson's blue eyes in last year's finale right? I completely understand your confusion.
Your review is right on the money Carissa, sorry Teen Wolf fans. This season is completely disjointed and poorly conceived. The "alpha" pack is a total joke, those twins are laugh out loud campy, merging into megawolf LMAO
Does anyone remember how scary uncle Peter's alpha wolf was in Season 1? Even the Kanima was scarier than alphas with a bad pedicure. Jeff Davis needs to go back and rewatch all the things he did right in the first season.
The Stiles/Danny scene was definitely the best part of the episode. It's a perfect example of what made the balance of comedic moments and "horror" work without going campy on us. Keeping my fingers crossed the writing team gets back on track, the actors are still fun to watch though.
Is there talk the show might not get a fourth season? That's the first I hear of it, thought Being Human's ratings were pretty decent. No?
Season 3 was excellent... I'll admit last year wasn't my favorite, but they killed it this season!
Trust me, it was not my intention to bash De Gouw/Huntress. I'm a fan of the show just like you and was really looking forward to the introduction of The Huntress. The writers have made the character so unlikeable and a "brat" as Carissa mentioned, that I can't imagine her as a trusted ally of Oliver's. Even less, a member of "Birds of Prey"... she has proven time and again that she can not be trusted and is beyond redemption. If the writers manage to stage a come back from all the damage she's caused in her story arc, more power to them. We'll just have to wait and see right? Thanks for your feedback!
It's not that I think Ollie and Felicity wouldn't be great as a couple. It's more about Oliver's relationships always ending badly and I feel like Felicity is one of the best characters on the show. Make her his girlfriend and we will eventually lose her. It's like an automatic ticket to Coast City. That would be really awful.
I saw your RT from Sam Witwer about Aidan dying and I was SO hoping he was just messin' around. Like I said, when Mitchell died it was the beginning of the end for the UK Show. Didn't get a chance to watch last night's episode until just now. This season has been phenomenal, some of the best writing of the entire series in my opinion. Glad Nora has come around, she was starting to annoying me with all the Aidan hate haha... The Zombie stuff is crazy! I actually DID shriek like a little girl when that toothbrush went through Sally's cheek, that was wild! Do you think Nick ate Zoe?
