Hard-Traveling Fanboys Podcast #197: Off the Page — Arrow’s Two Greatest Episodes

Our month-long celebration of the CW show Arrow continues! This week, Nick and Greg go Off the Page once more to watch and discuss the two episodes they consider the series’ best: “The Climb” (season 3, episode 9) and “Kapiushon” (season 5, episode 17). Nick and Greg rewatch these episodes for the first time in years to determine if they stand the test of time and hold up as the best, which the boys voted them earlier this month. Along the way, they discuss standout performances from Stephen Amell, Josh Segarra, Matt Nable and Willa Holland, the twisting threads of seasons 3 and 5, the bold endings of the episodes and how both work in the greater context of the show.

Mild-mannered reporters by day, Greg Phillips and Nick Duke share an intense love of comics, which has made them the Hard-Traveling Fanboys. In Off the Page, the boys examine a comic book media property outside the printed page.

Greg and Nick share two passions above all others, both of which involve people in spandex punching each other. Reporters by day, they also insist on being called "Two Dudes with Attitude" but can't decide who is Kevin Nash and who is Shawn Michaels.
