Starling Tribune - Season 4 Edition – Episode 12: Unchained (A CW Network Arrow Television Show Fan Podcast)


The Official Arrow Podcast of the Gonna Geek Network


In another great week with an Arrow episode the Starling Tribune Reporters Chris, Neil and Stargate Pioneer break it all down for you. Nyssa and Katana were back! And Oliver Queen unites all women superheroes everywhere. The Reporters discuss just how much more Katana Arrow will get versus the DC movie universe. The reporters also discuss self-destiny as the theme for the episode. The ladies get a semi-shirtless Stephen Amell/Oliver Queen scene (but it’s also a torture scene). Did the stone come from the tattoo? Reporter Stargate Pioneer thought the Nanda Parbat fight scene was a bit weak but the rest of the fight choreography was pretty good, including Curtis getting his shots in with Roy. While the reporters discuss how good it was to have Roy back they discuss if the character was supposed to die in the episode. Were Roy’s contacts from Curtis’ designs at Palmer Tech computers? Felicity/Overwatch is really wheeling that chair! And the Lair has ramps! The reporters enjoyed the superhero pose in front of the explosion. The reporters also rate the villain of the week (The Calculator). The Starling Tribune hashtag of the week is #someonegotshanked.  The reporters wrap up the episode with a list of Easter Eggs, Arrow News, Feedback and comments from the chat. Thank you for downloading and listening!
