TVArrow (01x14) "Time of Death"
Official Synopsis: "ROBERT KNEPPER AND ALEX KINGSTON GUEST STAR — Oliver (Stephen Amell) brings Sara (Caity Lotz) into the Arrow team. Watching Oliver and Diggle (David Ramsey) spar with Sara and talk old scars, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) starts to feel left out. The team is investigating a villain named William Tockman, a.k.a. The Clock King (guest star Robert Knepper), who is a brilliant thief armed with technology that can open any bank vault in Starling City. After The Clock King infiltrates the computer systems in the lair, Felicity feels pressure to prove her worth. When she gets a lead on Tockman’s whereabouts, she heads out without the team, putting her in peril. Meanwhile, Oliver throws Sara a welcome home party, but Laurel (Katie Cassidy) refuses to attend. After Lance (Paul Blackthrone) makes his case for a family dinner, Laurel acquiesces, but when Oliver shows up with Sara, she loses her temper on both of them. Nick Copus directed the episode written by Wendy Mericle & Beth Schwartz (#214)."
This was almost my favorite episode of the season till a series of hackneyed twists in the end almost ruined it. The worst is when Oliver finally meets Slade and pretends he doesn't know him. Why?! But Knepper was brilliant enough to watch this one and the explanation of the relationship with Sin and the dead pilot make it a stellar one. Best Easter Egg: Batman & Robin's "McGregor's Synodrome."
Intelligence (01x03) "Mei Chen Returns"
I started watching this show, about a guy who has access to all the worlds information, since someone told me its good. It's ok, but not compelling.
Almost Human (01x12) "Beholder"
A touching story that explores the social standing of the genetically modified Chromes and the bizarre world of plastic surgery addiction. Kennex' relationship with Stahl becomes more complex.
Guardians of the Galaxy #1 (2008) "Somebody's Got to Do It"
Official Synopsis: "Back-to-back Annihilation wars have weakened the boundaries of our universe. In the face of terror, who stands to defend a desperate universe? Star-Lord and his squad of butt-kickers the modern day Guardians of the Galaxy!"
I decided to start reading the comics to get ready for the movie. The book has a confusing flashback style that I just couldn't get into. Maybe next issue.
