The downside of having 20+ episode seasons is you get filler episodes or some uninteresting sub-plots. I could see how letting all the episodes build up would make for a better watching experience.

I'd say at least let the first 8-12 episodes build up, and then plow through those. The first 5 episodes or so of each season so far haven't offered TOO much. It seems like the show knows, "OK, we have 20+ episodes. Let's make the first half JUST interesting/entertaining enough to keep them coming back. Set up the pieces for the second half of the season and the major arc of the season. Then, we'll double-down on the epic and sprinkle in a couple of filler episodes that focus on a minor character or two, but also put cameos of other characters in to make it feel like the episode was bigger than it was". 


I don't know that that is necessarily the goal, but that's what it feels like. Whatever, it works. I'm still watching.

This season has had very few filler episodes though.  Usually they have had a part in the larger story that is going on.  Season 1 though, yeah, it had fillers, but it was needed to build up Arrow's character and the fact he used to have no problems killing everyone.

yeah, episode 11 from season 1 was the first really good episode, the first 10 felt like just enough to get a show on the air.

I watched it last week on Netflix when I was down with the stomach bug. The first few episodes really brought me in. It was fantastic.  I could see myself really liking the comic. However it started getting a little too much like Smallville, so formulaic.   I'm going to keep watching on Netflix from time to time to see how it goes.

My favorite episode so far this season has been "Heir to the demon". I'm hoping the league of assassins will play a bigger role next season. I tend to like the more action heavy episode's that get the entire team involved. sometimes Oliver's whole "must protect everyone by not letting them do anything " bit can get a little old. lol

I'm thinking season 3 will be heavy on the League of Assassins. I think we may even get to see Ra's.

I gotcha. It's just with the events at the end of season 1....and those who haven't seen season 2, the fact that you mention that name would be a spoiler.

I can believe it, with what we've seen in season 2 so far (regarding your potential spoiler). I expect that + Ra's being the main arc in season 3.
