Howdy, streamers. It's time for another installment of "What Could I be Doing Easily from My Couch?" The fruits of your labors this week will treat you very, very well. But other than these shows listed, there really isn't anything else for the average TV viewer to sink their eyeballs into on the new-to-streaming front. Are you hyped up for Series 8 of the British detective drama Foyle's War? What about Season 2 of the half-puppeted Disney XD series Crash & Bernstein? Those are the two garnishes on this entree dish of superheroes, super-bonding, and small town super-mysteries.

”arrow” Update: We're now at the end of September 14 with no sign of Arrow Season 2. Netflix hasn't released a statement saying what happened or why plans changed. We did, however, get an email from a publicist letting us know Season 2 will be available to stream on October 8, 2014! Get pumped.

Look! Up in the sky! It’s a bat signal! It’s an invisible jet! It’s Superman! But down here on the ground is Arrow, the greatest superhero to ever use a hoodie as his costume. The CW definitely deserves props for delivering a series that, though it still ties into the network’s mission statement of “Pretty People = Great TV,” is also a fun and drama-filled superhero story. We’re less than a month away from the network’s double dose of comic book fare, with Arrow’s Season 3 and the freshman season of The Flash both premiering in the early days of October. So what better time than now to revisit Starling City for its second chapter?

This second season follows Stephen Amell’s vigilante billionaire Oliver “Arrow” Queen dealing with the Season 1 death of his best friend as he tries hard to push revenge aside to stick to his moral coda of not killing anyone. Easier said than done, especially with Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) turning from a flashback friend into a flashback enemy who resurfaces as the malicious Deathstroke. Fortunately, Oliver’s bonds with confidant John Diggle (David Ramsey) and the tech savvy Felicity (Emily Better Rickards) are growing, and we’re introduced to Roy Harper (Colton Haynes), who takes on more of a hero role in the upcoming season.

Both seasons of Arrow will be available on Netflix Instant starting Sunday, September 14.
