Arrow Season 6 Finale Review

In recent years, the main problem of the show Arrow has been bad writing. It’s a story though the writers have a problem properly weaving together the various plots they themselves concorted; an issue that took a back seat last season (5).

For this season (6) finale, we see a lot of plots been poorly resolved and a villain, who was once promising but later became a shadow of his projected image, spilled over into the next season. These and many more makes me wonder how much more garbage can we, the viewers continue to swallow? How much more? If not anything, we deserve something disguised as quality… Remember seasons 2 and 5?
SPOILER ALERT!!! 

*I disliked the way Quentin was written off! 

For a character that’s been with the show since the first episode of the first season, Paul Blackthorne’s character wasn’t given a proper sendforth. Yes, he was injured. But this is the same kind of injury he and many other characters have suffered tremendously in the course of the show’s runs. It isn’t need that concussions and surgeries are like headaches in the #Arrowverse. So, why send the character that way? 🙄

*OLIVER is the GREEN ARROW

Yeah. We the viewers already know. But what does this major reveal means for every one in Star City, especially Felicity, Williams (whom I dislike so much 🤕) and the rest of the Arrow crew? They all definitely have a target on their backs now 🎯. Team Arrow can handle themselves, my fear is on Master and Mrs Queen’s safety. 🤔. The full consequence of this reveal should be one of the highlights of the next season, unless the writers decide to show us why they’re called the bane of this show… 🤥.

On the plus side: I was happy to see Sara again. There’s this different feel it had to weeing her on the waverider; I was just catching breezes of season 2 and 3 (before her first, real death 😂). 

I still believe #Arrow is capable of so much greatness (if season 5 taught us anything), the writers should do their homework properly and stop limiting our intelligence and the show’s growth. Thank you. 😁.

Supernatural Season 13 Finale Review

SPOILER ALERT!!! 

If you haven’t seen the episode do good to leave now. You’ve been warned… 😎. 

Supernatural ended its 13th season run by taking our favourites to some very new territories. With a not-so-shocking death of a long time troublesome devilish character, 😊, and a very-shocking transition for another, there’s so much reason to want the show returning ASAP for its 14th season. 

I for one knew Michael 2.0 wouldn’t honour his deal with Dean. Dean, too, should’ve known this, but was too desperate to care; the immediate threat was taking out Lucifer, and in doing so he’d cleared the floor for Michael to take over as the new devil. 😈. I’m all for seeing the many destructions he’ll cause using Dean’s meatsuit… 😂. 

The new state of things on Earth 1.0 leaves this new Michael as the only known Archangel alive… Remember Gabriel and Lucifer’s death? 💀 

Few questions I have:

1) Is #Lucifer truly dead? 

2) Is Dean-Michael going to be the primary villain of the new season?

3) How would Sam, Cass and Jack deal with this loss? 

4) How much longer can the show go on? 😂 

These and many more I hope the show quickly returns to tackle. See y’all in October. 😉.

Rinzy Reviews Crisis on Earth-X

SPOILER!!!
WTF! Victor Garber’s send forth could only be realized by killing off his character Martin Stein…. why?

On this note I begin my review of 2017’s Arrowverse massive crossover.

Ever since ‘The Flash’ was spun out of Arrow in 2014, the Arrowverse has continue to grow with more characters added to its ever growing list and its crossover becoming more and more ambitious. This year’s wasn’t an exception. It’s the best so far.

A lot of things happened. We had the disaster wedding of the moment, courtesy of Nazi soldier’s from Earth-X interrupting Barry and Iris. We also had them getting married at the end courtesy of John Diggle, with a spoiler, Oliver and Felicity also got married… I didn’t see that coming.

We got to see evil doppelgangers of our heroes and the return of the Reverse Flash. I think the producers have gotten tired of explaining his return, so much, that they just skipped it, on purpose, this time. Barry needs his Eobard, this we know, it’ll be easier if they just stopped killing and rewriting him. 

I enjoyed the crossover. An article from ‘Screen rant’ said it was a better DC team up than the cinema-released Justice League. Ouch!

The stakes keep getting bigger, more expensive, I really wonder what they’ll do next year.

All shows in the Arrowverse return for their mid season finales next week.

The CW’s ‘Dynasty’ Reboot Isn’t That Bad

I finally came around to watch the newly Dynasty show aired on The CW, and I found it to be a decent show.

Dynasty Reboot

Before its premiere, there were so many complaints about how the show wasn’t needed and how, judging by its trailer, it didn’t do justice to the original 1981 show that ran for 9 seasons, 220 episodes on ABC; well, now, I’ve seen it, and I can tolerate it. There was nothing wow, but I had vibes of ‘Gossip Girl’ which I loved so much, watching it. 
Dynasty is an American prime time television soap opera reboot based on the 1980s series of the same name. Developed by Josh Schwartz, Stephanie Savage, and Sallie Patrick, the new series stars Grant Show as Blake Carrington, Nathalie Kelley as Cristal Flores Carrington, Elizabeth Gillies as Blake’s daughter Fallon, and James Mackay as his son Steven.

It airs every Thursday on The CW.

Arrow: Oliver’s Identity Exposed

After six season of guarding the identity of his alter ego, Oliver has finally been ousted at the end of the S07 E01, possibly by Black Siren. While this is an important move on the part of the producers’ to marry Oliver the mayor with Oliver the vigilante into one, it sure will have dire consequences moving forward. 

I do blame the people of Star City for being dumb all these years, how hard could it be to ID the man. Deep down, I think they’ve always known, but choose to play pretend. Now that Oliver is doing good with the city job, as Mayor, I want to believe the populace will be more accepting of his secret double life, which wouldn’t be a secret anymore.

This revelation has been a long time coming, the full consequences of this revelation can only be seen as they unfold. As usual, things will only get worse before they start to get better.
