Everyone says Arrow Season 4 sucks, guess what; they’re right! Season 4 is the worst in any category; it’s story is uninteresting at best and abysmal at worst, the characters are idiots when they’re not being complete douche bags and the tone is so inconsistently different from the previous seasons that you will never look at this and believe it was from the same show as it’s predecessors- even the third season was more consistent with the tone set up before.
Oliver is no longer an interesting character; the focus isn’t even on him much and he has nothing at all to do. Thea, Malcolm and Diggle who I liked before are no longer interesting. And the elephant in the room is Felicity- GOOD GOD, a character that was likeable before is now condescending and unlikeable who does some the stupidest things I’ve ever seen. I swear this became more a Felicity show than an Arrow show. And the Olicity romance gets so much worse each episode- I still don’t buy the romance at all.
And the death of (spoilers) Laurel was handled poorly- it was rushed, it was an insult to the iconic comic book romance between Green Arrow and Black Canary and a waste of a character arc for Laurel. When she died, my jaw was literally on the floor at how stupid the decision was.
But not only is the present day story terrible, the flashbacks are at this point so uninteresting you can skip them and you won’t miss a thing. Even the action is awful- whoever the choreography team were, please make sure they don’t work again.
I guess I liked Damien Dark, but that’s because the actor who played was the only one who seemed to give a crap- everyone else looks bored and it angers me. This is the Batman and Robin of Arrow... no the Catwoman of Arrow! I can’t express how awful this season is, I’m done talking about it- I’m moving on before I lose my mind.
