So, Internet, over the weekend, while we were busy geeking out and celebrating everything about being a nerd at APCC, this happened:
Yeah. GMA’s Alyas Robin Hood was revealed, along with not-so-subtle similarities to a certain show airing on the CW called Arrow.
And the Internet went insane.
How is it possible for @gmanetwork to greenlight (get it?) Alyas Robinhood knowing all too well that it's a brazen rip-off of Arrow?

Tbf, I was really hyped about Alyas Robin Hood but never knew how much they took from Arrow visually 🙁

It didn’t help that Arrow star Stephen Amell saw the trailer and gave his own confused reaction:
We just needed a bunch of salty nerds to make something out of the nerd rage.
With #PitchAShowToGMA, the internet gave their own sardonic take on how local networks cultivate imitation instead of creativity. Here are our favorite things from this meme:
