Hey, Arrow, Is It Too Late To Start Watching You Again?

Sometimes shows that you think are going to be great start off strong, but then lose their way. No matter how excited you are for the characters and stories, no matter how much you want to love it, and no matter how much you may love the first few episodes, something goes wrong. You keep watching for awhile, but then you fall behind and never catch up. But what to do when you suddenly start hearing, months later, that it’s good again and you must watch it? For me, the show in question would be Arrow.

I was very excited when Arrow made its debut and even talked about what an amazing show it was and how it had not just met, but exceeded my expectations. And it was great, but then, I don’t even know what happened. It’s the worst thing ever when you slowly stop liking a show, like realizing you have to dump your boyfriend even though he’s a really nice guy and you don’t want to hurt his feelings.

Eventually, you’re just too darn bored and you make the break. First, you fall behind a few episodes. Then you sort of half watch, probably while you’re checking your email on your phone or sending a few tweets. Then, you just stop watching and even delete it from the queue. It is dead to you. The end. Goodbye.

I broke up with Arrow somewhere toward the end of the first season. The second season of the show has just come to a close, and I swear the internet has completely blown up with excitement over what’s happening on the show. Everyone is saying that I must, must, must, give it a second chance.

There’s my dilemma. Do I get back together with Arrow, or is it going to break my heart again? The summer doldrums are almost upon us so I’ll have the time to watch it without sacrificing things I’m already watching, but do I take the chance?

I’ve been debating watching it for the last few weeks, and now there’s the whole Flash thing, and I think that has sealed the deal.

Arrow, let’s get back together for a little summer fling.

  1. YOU TOTALLY SHOULD! I was ambivalent about the first season. If I missed an ep, oh well. I never even finished the first season before the second started but it didn't really matter. This past season has been… OH EM GEE. Fantastic. Some low points, without a doubt, but the way they ramped up the super heroism was amazing.
