Told you Part 2 was coming soon. And here it is.
The first season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the second season of Arrow are entering summer reruns! Which means now is a great time to talk about what each show did right, and what each one did wrong! To do so, RevNews host has gathered together a mix of Clearance Level 8 and Island Survivors to talk about both shows! He's joined by Foremost Flash Fan Shaun Rosado
The nimble Nathan Laws, and newcomer to the show Agent Ryan Guthrie! This group is so knowledgeable, in fact, that the discussion ballooned into a SUPER EPIC FOUR HOUR EPISODE!

Having mercy on your download connections, we've broken things in half. In our second episode, we discuss all things related to our favorite Starling City Archer! Listen in as we do an episodic breakdown of the season; Shaun gets his face melted off; outdoor Arrow vs Indoor S.H.I.E.L.D.; The "Hero vs Vigilante" through-line of the season; good nods to the comics vs bad ones; how the show earned its superpowers; Ollie's ghosts vs Slade's ghosts; The Commissioner Gordon Effect; The Queen family's communication issues; our love of Manu & Amell's acting; subtly vs sledgehammering on a theme and how it's a good time for comics fans on TV. Our theme music this episode is "20 Minutes of Oxygen" by Darkest of the Hillside Thickets courtesy of Divine Industries.Inc.
