Dark Archer, John Barrowman
The Dark Archer will pay Starling City a visit on this week's Arrow, and considering John Barrowman's "well-dressed man" was revealed to be Malcolm Merlyn, the father of Tommy (Colin Donnell), it seems only likely that the DC Comics' famed dark archer — aka Merlyn — is one and the same as the new villain plaguing Oliver (Stephen Amell). So is Malcolm the famed Merlyn or is it his son? TVGuide.com turned to Barrowman to get the scoop:
Now that the Green Arrow is coming to The CW this fall, the entire DC Comics canon is at the fingertips of the Arrow producers — and they're definitely game to bring on plenty of famous DC faces.
The CW's new superhero drama will follow the exploits of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), a wealthy playboy who survives a boating accident that leaves him stranded on a deserted island for five years where he hones his archery skills to survive, birthing his alter ego, Arrow.

Question: I'm one of the last people one would expect to watch Downton Abbey, but after hearing the endless raves about it, I made it through the first season on DVD during a weekend, and a new episode is now one of the highlights of my TV-watching week. However, my question is about the "mean girls" (i.e. Thomas and Miss O'Brien). Sure, it's always fun to have a couple of mustache-twirling villains to root against, but unless I missed something, I guess they're supposed to be bad just for the sake of being bad.

Question: Regardless of who wins, I have to say that watching The Glee Project this summer has been a total pleasure. I can't remember another reality competition where I was actually rooting for every contestant, and if Ryan Murphy wanted to add the entire final four to the Glee cast, I don't think I'd mind. But beyond the competition aspect, I love how the show gives us a behind-the-scenes glimpse into how Glee is written and choreographed each week. As a bona fide TV nerd, that's the kind of stuff I find fascinating, and it's given me a new respect for the hard work the regular cast must put in. What are the chances of The Glee Project getting a second season, and what do you think of the ...
