Enabling Addictions; Killing Sobriety

arrow - better quality banner

If  you’re  anything  like  me,  then  just  seeing  this  picture  gives  you  the  warm  fuzzies  and  a  pleasurable  tingly  spine.  When  I  finally  got  around  to  watching  Arrow,  I  wasn’t  ready  for  the  impact  it  would  have  on  my  life.  Seriously,  you  guys,  I’m  addicted.

We’ve  all  seen  the  pictures  detailing  the  hardship  that  comes  when  we  read  an  outstanding  book  like  so:

But,  what  about  a  TV  hangover?  

If  you  haven’t  seen  Arrow  yet,  I  suggest  you  get  your  butts  on  the  sofa/bed,  pop  some  delicious  salty  popcorn  in  the  microwave,  crack  open  a  can  of  coke,  and  settle  down  for  a  few  days  of  pure  vegetation.  Trust  me,  it’s  worth  it.  And,  just  in  case  you  still  need  a  little  more  goading,  I  give  you  this:

Do  you  still  need  convincing?

I  swear  it’s  not  just  because  of  the  well-toned,  ab-mazing,  broodingly  handsome,  eye  candy  that  I  watch  it.  As  a  writer,  analysing  plot  lines  and  character  development  really  excites  me,  and  boy,  oh,  boy  does  Arrow  deliver!  Between  the  riveting  action,  excellent  character  background,  and  brilliant,  timely  humour,  the  recipe  creates  a  mind-blowing,  cake  explosion  of  awesomeness.

Did  I  mention  there’s  a  slew  of  ass-kicking  women  too?  It  makes  a  nice  change  from  all  the  damsels  in  distress  nowadays.  And  the  weapons?  Oh,  yes!  A  bow  and  arrow,  crossbow,  staff,  knives  –  not  just  your  average  guns.  It’s  about  time  we  had  a  little  diversity,  right?  Plus  there’s  plenty  of  DC  comic-book  characters  making  appearances  too:

If  you’re  one  of  my  friends  on  facebook,  then  you’re  no  doubt  aware  just  how  much  this  programme  has  suckered  me  in.  Everything  about  it  entices,  and  appeals  to  me,  but  I  think  my  family  is  fed  up  of  hearing  me  go  on  about  it.  So,  what’s  a  girl  to  do  when  even  after  four  days  have  passed  by,  it’s  still  all  I  can  think  about?  Therapy  is  an  option,  or  I  can  continue  to  obsess  over  the  facebook  pages  dedicated  to  Arrow  now  that  they’re  filming  season  3.  Or,  I  could  totally  re-watch  the  series  again…

Hooked Series

When  I  finally  appeased  my  mind,  a  truly  daunting  thought  flashed  by.  What  if  the  show  got  cancelled?  My  nerves  shot  through  the  roof,  my  heart  beat  faster,  and  my  temper  raged  like  I  was  injected  with  Mirakuru.  Without  Arrow,  I  would  spiral  into  a  Vertigo-induced  mental-breakdown.

Oh,  did  I  even  mention  that  this  is  the  one  programme  that  actually  makes  me  want  to  work  out?

Not  only  does  season  3  come  out  this  Autumn,  but  so  does  The  Flash,  and  if  you’ve  watched  Arrow  then  you’ll  understand  the  connection  here.  I  mean, HELLO!  TV  just  got  upgraded  to  superhero  level.

While  I  wait  for  my  phone  call  to  join  Arrow’s  spectacular  writing  team,  I’ll  leave  you  with  a  question.

What  TV  programme  are  you  completely  obsessed  with?
