    Mark another show for failure

    The first topic the show has taken on: gun control. Wednesday's episode, ominously titled "Spectre of the Gun," features a masked shooter who terrorizes City Hall. The attack leads to a city-wide gun control debate, with politicians and vigilante heroes taking various positions on the issue.

    Guggenheim underscored that they were deliberately trying to take the show in a more political direction, particularly after the election of Donald Trump. In fact, he wrote the gun control episode the week of Trump's historic upset of Hillary Clinton.

    "We went into Season 5 wanting to do an episode about an issue," he told reporters. "Gun violence felt like the right topic, because of its topicality and because of the level of gun violence is on 'Arrow.' We could have done an episode on abortion, but thatís not really where the show lives. So gun violence really felt like the right thing to tackle."

    Weíre tempted to suggest a conspiracy here ó but itís just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply canít conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    TV and entertainment as a whole has pretty much been a failure for about 20 years or so now,
