First, read this story about cosplayers being awesome.

:D

Ok, so it seems that the CW has cast an actress to play Sin in the Arrow series. My reaction to this news so far is mostly open-mouthed shock. They're casting an obscure POC female character for this series? Whoa. That was unexpected.

Obviously they're going to change the character around. (ROY HARPER, WHAT HAPPENED?) but I'm actually wildly curious where they're going to go with this. I'm hoping to catch up on Arrow in time for Dragon*con, but between some of the interesting stuff they're doing and the fact that my roommate is a big fan, I'll probably be watching it next season, at least.

On a related note, DC better step up its game or Marvel is going to take over movies AND TV, and then I'll never see a live-action Nightwing adaptation. AND THAT WOULD BE TRAGIC.

Yay!

Actually, this was the first episode I enjoyed the most so far. And no, not because Barrowman had more screentime although you can check out my screencaps here.

Mostly, I think I liked that things are moving forward and that the show acknowledged some major plot holes. I Did Not Like spoilers ) And I'm discovering a fondness for all of Ollie's family, stepdad included.

I want to like Laurel's dad. He's justified in his feelings and he's right all the time. But...I can't. I dunno, I just don't really like him. :/

We did make fun of how poor Green Arrow is just following in Batman's footsteps AGAIN. Oh, Ollie.

I DO want an animated gif icon of Ollie, Bruce and Tony with his quote: "Well you know us billionaire vigilantes. We do love our toys." :D

I have engaged in my first successful tumblr conversations! One involved me reccing a [livejournal.com profile] heddychaa fic and the other one was all LOOK AT GARETH'S FAKE CHEST SCAR so fun times all around.

But I also had lots of important shows to catch up on.

GDL in Holby City )

John Barrowman in Arrow )

ETA: I forgot that AfterElton recaps are the reason for television.

AS IN BROKE MY BRAIN.

John Barrowman is going to be in the new Green Arrow show! The one that I've been kinda LOLing about since the trailer came out because it looks like the creative team was basically told that Ollie is Batman, with arrows. (Which he was, sure, but he isn't now!)

LOOKS LIKE I'M GOING TO HAVE TO WATCH EVERY EPISODE.

THANK YOU FOR THE NEWS [personal profile] iceshade

Ok, bedtime now.
