The 602 Club: A Geekery Speakeasy
37: Those Aforementioned Abs

Arrow Season One.

For ten years Smallville told us the story of Clark Kent and how he became Superman, setting the stage for how to do a modern comic book television show. As it wrapped up the question of what would follow was answered when Arrow burst on to the scene in the fall of 2012. 

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by Alice Baker and Daniel Proulx to talk about the first season of Arrow. We remember the beginning, it being two shows in one, the characters and actors, strong female characters, a quick aside, the first season arc, shipping, our final thoughts and ratings.
