What to Watch This Week: The Flash, Arrow and The Walking Dead Return!
While the Fall TV season has technically been underway for a while now, but there's been a rather large Green and Red whole in our viewing schedules so far. That hole will thankfully be filled this week, with the return of CW's The Flash and Arrow looming large over our weekly watch list. As if that wasn't enough, The Walking Dead returns for its 6th season. The time to hunker down and watch TV until your eyes bleed is finally here.

Arrow Season 4 Premiere - 8pm on CW
If the first reactions to Arrow's season 4 premiere are anything to go by, this is definitely going to be a big episode for fans of Olicity.

As Diggle, Speedy and company try to maintain the peace back in Star City, they are forced to admit that they need the Arrow's help to deal with a particularly dangerous foe. Arrow is back, so prepare for lots more '#OMG #Olicity' tweets.

Supermansion - on Crackle
