If you’re anything like me, then just seeing this picture gives you the warm fuzzies and a pleasurable tingly spine. When I finally got around to watching Arrow, I wasn’t ready for the impact it would have on my life. Seriously, you guys, I’m addicted.
We’ve all seen the pictures detailing the hardship that comes when we read an outstanding book like so:
But, what about a TV hangover?
If you haven’t seen Arrow yet, I suggest you get your butts on the sofa/bed, pop some delicious salty popcorn in the microwave, crack open a can of coke, and settle down for a few days of pure vegetation. Trust me, it’s worth it. And, just in case you still need a little more goading, I give you this:
Do you still need convincing?
I swear it’s not just because of the well-toned, ab-mazing, broodingly handsome, eye candy that I watch it. As a writer, analysing plot lines and character development really excites me, and boy, oh, boy does Arrow deliver! Between the riveting action, excellent character background, and brilliant, timely humour, the recipe creates a mind-blowing, cake explosion of awesomeness.
Did I mention there’s a slew of ass-kicking women too? It makes a nice change from all the damsels in distress nowadays. And the weapons? Oh, yes! A bow and arrow, crossbow, staff, knives – not just your average guns. It’s about time we had a little diversity, right? Plus there’s plenty of DC comic-book characters making appearances too:
If you’re one of my friends on facebook, then you’re no doubt aware just how much this programme has suckered me in. Everything about it entices, and appeals to me, but I think my family is fed up of hearing me go on about it. So, what’s a girl to do when even after four days have passed by, it’s still all I can think about? Therapy is an option, or I can continue to obsess over the facebook pages dedicated to Arrow now that they’re filming season 3. Or, I could totally re-watch the series again…
When I finally appeased my mind, a truly daunting thought flashed by. What if the show got cancelled? My nerves shot through the roof, my heart beat faster, and my temper raged like I was injected with Mirakuru. Without Arrow, I would spiral into a Vertigo-induced mental-breakdown.
Oh, did I even mention that this is the one programme that actually makes me want to work out?
Not only does season 3 come out this Autumn, but so does The Flash, and if you’ve watched Arrow then you’ll understand the connection here. I mean, HELLO! TV just got upgraded to superhero level.
While I wait for my phone call to join Arrow’s spectacular writing team, I’ll leave you with a question.
What TV programme are you completely obsessed with?
