    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 that’s not really where the show lives. So gun violence really felt like the right thing to tackle."

    Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

    “There is a deeply anti-democratic undercurrent to much of the criticism of the new president, borne aloft by an assumption that democracy is too important to be left to the voters.”

    And if a statue can oppress you, then I submit that you have greater issues. - A West.

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