    Red face Arrow and Revolution

    is anyone watching either of these newlings?

    i watched the first two episodes of Revolution and divver'd the third, but yet to watch because i still can't decide if it's worth my time. i like the premise, but it's kind of too much a television version of something like the Postman... and i can't stand Costner. it just aired its 5th episode on Monday.

    i've caught the first two episodes of Arrow, and i've enjoyed it so far (kind of)... the acting is so-so, and the dialogue a bit stiff, but it looks nice, and there has been a couple of cool fights. i missed Oliver Queen's run on Smallville, so i can't tell you how they compare, but considering it's the same Network, i'm sure they're equally melodramatic at least. i don't suggest this unless you're really into a Green Arrow (MY kid's name is Oliver for Pete's sake!), or can handle the adolescent angst cum adventure oriented soap opera that the dubba dubba dubbya-upn-cw-bee throws atchya.

    I'm watching Revolution, but not Arrow.

    For Revolution, I like the show so far. It is definitely one of the more fun shows this season. The action scenes are especially good. Like I mentioned in the Fall TV thread, the show feels like a mixture of 24, Lost, and Jericho all rolled up in one.

    While it seems like most of you are allergic to the "like" button, I just want to personally say thanks for looking anyway.

    Gave up on Revolution.

    Arrow Ep #1 was decent and I only DVR'd #2 last night. The NYCC teaser looked OK, but they keep saying Huntress is coming-up and although she has no purpose even being in Star City, I hope she's at least decent (as awesome as Zatanna on Smallville).

    I've watched all episodes of both series so far.

    I kind of like the concept of Revolution. Charlie's know-it-all attitude bugs the hell out of me, and that an insurance adjuster's transformation into such a badass is pretty amusing to me. I'll give it a couple more episodes to see if I can stick with it.

    I like Arrow a bit more. I'm kind of intrigued by what happened to the guy while stuck on the island. I think it does a better job of sucking you in the show. I don't care for the Detective Lance character. And the show does get overly dramatic at times. I'll definitely watch the next couple episodes.

    I also gave up on Revolution.

    Week 2 of Arrow as a minor disappointment following a very promising pilot, but it's still a show I'm interested in watching. Hopefully week 3 will be better.

    Haven't watched either.

    Revolution seemed like it would appeal to me, but I got a "Lost meets The Day After Tomorrow" vibe from it and so far these series with the overarching mystery questions hanging over them have tended to be disappointing.

    I got over Smallville in a couple of seasons, and I've never been much of a Green Arrow fan, so I let that one go completely.

    lotsa talk/news about both of these in the FALL TV thread...I have dvr'd both ARROW eps, love the bringing in of characters like DEATHSTROKE/DEADSHOT/ROYAL FLUSH GANG...still, it seems to suffer from the DARK KNIGHT/NOLAN disease where they are removing the super from the superhero...but I think the show has potential that needs to be refined.

    Revolution...I love it. Entirely derivative. Yet it is playful enough that it seems to have a constant head of steam. We have all seen it before...so what. I think it might almost be too fast paced, gonna run out of secrets quick...still it's WAY better than GRIMM which is the bar it will be measured against. Nice sense of fun...although not without consequences(major character died already) so a good balance.

    Revolution is a good bit cheesy but definite fun. I was surprised they had that death. Unfortunately that will probably lead to more screen time for the guy stalking Charlie. The guy transporting Charlie's brother is great, but he obviously can only last so long.
