10 Great Moments From Arrow, Season 3, Episode 1 | “Calm”

I didn’t want to fall for another TV show. I have too many as it is and I suffer from DVR guilt every time I look at the backlog of shows on it. It’s actually social media’s fault that I even became curious about Arrow. (Mo-ooommmm, Twitter made me do it!) Stephen Amell has a Continue Reading
