Arrow Straightens Out

I must say, season seven (seven already?) of Arrow opened with promise: the characters act in reasonable ways with believable motivations, the stakes are high and yet grounded, the action choreography is excellent, and the cast, given better material, seems more engaged. The Flash also premiered strong last week, showing many of the same strengths but with a stronger focus on lighthearted moments, which is entirely appropriate for that show. Supergirl, too, had a strong, topical opening, featuring the welcome return of Lynda Carter as the President of the United States (if only!). Things are looking up in the Arrowverse this year...
