Back To School: Stationary










To be honest, I did not know whether River would ever return to the show, but here she is, back with the Doctor for the Christmas special. Steven Moffat is on glittering form, giving us an episode filled with humour and surprise guest castings. I met Peter for the first time at Monday’s read through, we had a laugh, and I am now excited and ready to start filming with him and the Doctor Who team. Christmas in September? Why not!

Wook: It’s been 10 years (in the dorm). I’m used to the craziness, and member’s strange habits, and taking care of them.Every time I hear members talking about the stories that happen in the dorm, I feel thankful that we’re all so close.Fearing loneliness, fearing being without them, fearing being a burden so I urge myself to be independent..

Hi laura. I asked u this ques ealier but i guess u didnt see it or i missed ur answer? Anyway I saw a vid of fanboys discussing arrow vs daredevil which is the better show. So they were giving points by categories (stunts,villains,teams etc) and it tied. They broke the tie by choosing who is the better hero btw matt and oliver and they said matt is better because oliver left with felicity in the finale so u cant rely on him. I dnt care that they prefering daredevil as a show or character....

…i just have a problem with their reason. So oliver chooses himself and his happiness for once and suddenly he is not a good hero anymore? And lets not forget that the arrow is actually believed to be dead by the city. What do u think?”

Hi, Anon! I’m sorry if I missed your question - it doesn’t look familiar, so it may have fallen victim to an accidental deletion. I’ve answered a couple of asks about Daredevil, but yours doesn’t seem to be one of them.

I have watched Daredevil, and there are certainly enough similarities to Arrow that comparing the two shows to choose which is better wouldn’t be easy. I think that what needs to be taken into consideration when comparing Oliver Queen and Matt Murdock is that the two men are in markedly different legs of their journey.

As I opined in response to a question asking if Felicity is likely to meet a fate such as Gwen Stacy or Karen Page, Oliver is on the upswing of his hero’s journey. He already spent his time as a self-sacrificing, self-destructive, selfishly selfless vigilante who devoted himself wholly to his cause. He already learned that living with nothing else to him aside from his mission is unhealthy and unsustainable. He already tried living his real life under mask and hood, and he already discovered that it isn’t enough. Oliver Queen is developmentally ahead of Matt Murdock on the vigilantism path, and I don’t think that having his hard edges softened somewhat means that he is any less of a hero. Oliver Queen already was Matt Murdock, and he already learned that being a hero at full throttle at all times just doesn’t work if that hero intends to live out of his twenties with his life and sanity intact.

Maybe Oliver on Arrow isn’t as much of a stereotypical comic hero as Matt on Daredevil, but I personally feel that the nuances of Oliver’s character as he develops along the way in his journey makes him the most compelling superhero on television today…

…which just so happens to be the basis of an article that shall be going live shortly!
