    Yep, she's passed Carl levels of annoying (circa seasons 2 and 3, I actually like Carl now, so characters can grow out of it)

    The producers originally said that she will ultimately become Black Canary, her sister was just supposed to be temporary. But shows often audible, and they have written it so that her character is ridiculously annoying, and people have grown to like the current Black Canary, so they may change plans, but I doubt it.

    Really good show, people shouldn't be scared to watch it just because it's on the CW.

    Project Free TV, you can basically watch any show for those that are behind.

    Yea dude, I saw the first half of season 2 on Project Free TV.

    Hulu plus has all the episodes as well, just sign up for their 2 week free trial.

    A great show. I see it as Green Arrow gets a Batman Begins-type of treatment. Anyways, the producers have made quite a few changes on the fly. The thing with Caity Lotz as Sarah Lance becoming a regular was based on fan feedback and the job that the actress did in the role. She's pretty athletic and there is a video of her doing parkour on youtube.

    The same thing with the Felicity Smoak character, she was supposed to be a throwaway but the producers liked the chemistry between the actress and the main character and kept bringing her back until she became a regular.

    I like how they have mined the DC lore for the basic idea but keep coming up with their own twist. I'm no purist, so as long as it makes sense within the show, I'll like it.

    And yes to the OP, Laurel is a whiny bitch.

    Yeah, Laurel is a b, but honestly, I see this just being a long journey for her to become Black Canary.

    Oliver was a whiny douche in the Island for the first two years, maybe they're just trying to mirror that with Laurel. I'm thinking, Sarah is going to be killed (which I won't mind cause the actress playing her sucks) leading to Laurel looking into what she was involved with, which culminates with her taking up the fish nets!

    Everything else on this show is complete awesomeness though. The trailer for next week looks awesome too. Dat Deathstroke tho!

    Yeah I'm thinking this too, probably at Deathstroke's hands as revenge for Shado.

    Speaking of deviating from the comics, they have largely re-written deathstroke so far, but they appear to have kept his bad-assery intact so I'm cool with it.

    Crixus playing death stroke is so badass. Love that they picked him.

    I watch everything on my ipad and Hulu plus only has episode 10+ on it. I guess I'll just wait a few months for it to be on netflix.

    Overall good show, but it seems that Diggle who should be Arrow's sidekick is left behind and isnt even an integral part of the show and my goodness the acting can be cringe worthy more often then not, I'm looking at you Felicity and Thea.

    I'm a huge Emily Bett Rickards fan. If you're in to Twitter and Instagram, she's worth a follow.

    I love the show, and can't wait for all of the upcoming appearances of other DC heroes/villains. The show runners are on their game.

    Yeah, diggle has been kinda ignored lately because of all the characters coming in. But it looks like the Suicide Squad storyline could be a way for him to be a main player again. It'll probably be him, deadshot, bronze tiger and someone else.
