Review: Arrow ‘Trust But Verify’

Season 1, Episode 11 - Arrow stews up the pot a bit, but does little more than tease

 

This week’s episode of Arrow, “Trust But Verify” brings us… well, more of what last week brought us, for the most part.  The bad-guy-of-the-week this time around happens to be an old army buddy of Diggle’s, which makes things a little more complicated for the crime-fighting team.  Diggle tries to work things out for himself, investigating instead of just letting Oliver put an arrow in the guy, but in the end it just reverts to the standard way of dealing with the problem and scratch one more name from Arrow’s master list.

Review: Arrow ‘Burned’

Season 1, Episode 10 - Arrow returns with a few improvements and a few flaws.

The second half of the first season of Arrow has begun, picking up after a short, month-long hiatus.  It’s always nice when they don’t make you wait too long, otherwise you end up forgetting what the heck was going on.  So far, the series has been fairly decent.  It’s not the best acted or scripted show on television, but it does possess all the elements that make comic books

Jodie Foster’s moving speech

The amazing actress came out in a very emotional, heartfelt speech last night.

I have been a Jodie Foster fan since I saw The Silence of the Lambs as a young teen, and I have followed the very private actress’s career since. She seems like one of the most genuine people in Hollywood, and I have a feeling that she is a fantastic mother. I remember watching an interview she did when she made Nim’s Island, and how she said she wanted to make something that her kids could watch, and thinking, “I bet she’s a great mom.”
