Thanks to this thread, I've had the urge to rewatch the series... again. Gah! No! Must resist! (At least till march, and even still- hopefully- till summer). GAAAAHHH
It has just the right mix between comedy, idiocy, action, badassery, and a hint of realistic ness-
Now, before anyone starts abusing me with "how can that show have anything realistic in it! Is there something wrong with your brain???" I'd like to chime in with the fact that I like how the retainers aren't like 'Oh, here is the chosen one, I will now obey every single thing you command even though you're like, 15 and a foreigner who knows nothing about anything that's happening or going on!" I mean, generally speaking that is.
There's also the back and forth aspect, where the character isn't completely stuck in that world. I feel like too many series get contained in the other life and don't have the back and forth double identity style, which I adore. I wish it was even more fleshed out here, but what was done was satisfying enough. Awwww me wanna watch again!!! :D
Holy arfing gawd, dude. Hookworm. They don't leave on their own, they love to tear through your insides just for the hell of it.
You need a doctor's prescription for human-grade worm kill and I'd also start eating things with garlic in them. Garlic turns your blood into a worm repellent which will help the meds expel the nasty things. But doctor is important. You're shooting full grown worms out your arse, not eggs or larva. o.O
My brothers dog goes "arf." Now I think she's cussing at me.
Yeah, but I have to know. Did Shartma -- Uh, I mean NaBraniel go to the doctor?
Not enough Manu Bennett. Slade was the best villain. They should just say he escaped the prison already and have him come back for revenge. I guess he was busy filming Shannara Chronicles though anyway, so probably have to wait until at least next season. I like Felicity though, but I think Sara was a better Black Canary. The voice thing Laurel does is totally lame. Black Canary's power is supposed to be way more... well, powerful. And agreed, HIVE and League of Assassins aren't up to snuff as bad guys. I get that they don't want to bring super powered villains in and make it like Flash, but they need better baddies. Anarchy was pretty decent, but he was just around for an episode or two sadly.
I am really kind of in the same boat. I basically turned it on for background noise and was pleasantly surprised that within a few episodes I was really getting into it. The whole tournament scenario around episode 11 or so I thought was awesome for action too. Not only was the battle royal fun, but I thought the tournament and the following battle were amazing i was on the edge of my seat lol.
yeah, they definitely pulled some pretty big surprises during the tournament, and for some reason it when in a different direction than I imagined.
