Arrow is a modern retelling of the DC Comic character Green Arrow. Multi-millionaire playboy Oliver Queen is missing, and presumed dead after a shipwreck at sea. He is found five years later, having survived on a desert island off his wits and by mastering the bow and arrow. When he returns to Starling City however, he discovers that it is rife with corruption and crime. Oliver decides to put his skills to use by taking on the persona of Arrow and becoming the vigilante that Starling City needs.

  • !!Less Katie Cassidy < More Willa Holland!!

    9.0
    I'll agree with the, "too much whining" was going on, but my only real problem this season is Katie Cassidy as The Black Canary. This is one of my favorite shows, but that's just hard to watch. I'm sorry, she was good until she put that costume on and began to fight. It's just not her cup of tea. If that could be dialed back or brought to a screeching halt, that would be great. Other than that I think they've done a great job this season. Smoke did turn into nails on a chalkboard there for a bit, but then she took her clothes off and it was all good. lol jk I really like the show though and hope to see it air for a long time to come.moreless
  • The Arrow is Broken. Fix It!!!!!

    1.0
    Great actors being forced to read horrible scripts. DC was always 2nd to Marvel and a poor copycat, now the TV series? I skipped lunch as a kid to buy a Marvel comic, never a DC. I wanted to be a fan of the show, but after watching Oliver taking cover behind a moving car in Converse out. Too laughable. Nobody with a brain wants Below Average!
  • Setting up for something major, i hope..

    7.5
    I'll admit, there has been a fair amount of whining this season, not alot, but more than i like. Especially, from felicity, and a bit from thea.. .. Hoping that will be dialed back a little more, because it was really aggravating to see her on screen after awhile.. Hmmm, actually the laurel hate has been a little unfounded for me this season, i mean we barely ever see her, and when we do she's been pretty much going with the flow as of lately. She's stepped up for the team as well, going up against her father and his little crusade.. Can't say i've been having issues with her character, even her fighting style is improving.. I'm really adjusting to her as the black canary.. Also, been very satisfied with Malcolm's presence .. he's really been my favorite character on the show.. They really need something to back it off that ledge of being a total teen soap, but it's still a good show all in all.moreless
  • Make the CW Earth 2!!!

    9.5
    A little while back, DC confirmed that their TV and Movie Universes will be separate.

    Whatever your opinion on that (mine is 50/50), accept that fact for the purpose of this post.



    What I want the CW to do in light of that, is confirm that they are Earth 2.

    How?

    By introducing certain things and characters that nullify any change of Arrow and Flash's world intertwining into the MoS world.



    I'll start with the two major characters headlining the movie Universe at the moment.

    Bruce Wayne (Batman):

    Confirm his existence and (here is the defining part) confirm his death.

    Before you blow up, google "Flashpoint Batman".

    In the CW they should confrim that a number of years ago, in Gotham, Bruce Wayne was murdered (in place of his parents).

    Thomas and Martha are alive (and a lot older).

    Thomas became (now retired) Batman, and Martha went mad and became (now incarcerated) The Joker.

    Thomas would be a good tie in to assist Oliver with both regaining his company and his Vigilante mission.



    Superman:

    Again sticking with Flashpoint.

    Kal-El never came in contact with the Kent family.

    Upon landing, the government found him and kept him locked away in secret all these years.

    Great way of ensuring there will is no Superman

    Not a bad plot device for the Government. (RnD on Kal. Bio weapons, enhancements



    Green Lantern (Guy Gardner):

    In certain incarnations of Hal Jordan's origin, it is said the the actual first choice for the ring is Guy, but Booster Gold came back in time and influenced both their locations so that Hal was chosen instead.

    Do that, but maybe have Barry accidently (or deliberately) influence Guy for the favorable choice.

    Guy would really drive home the CW's attempt at their own World in the DC multiverse by changing things up with GL.

    Also Guy could be easily introduced similar to the way they did Barry (pre-hero).

    He was a cop for a time, before getting fired ect.

    Bring him into Arrow or Flash as a normal cop, show the story of him as a cop for a while, then show what happened to get him fired and then give him the ring.

    There is the possibility of a spin off GL show, but given most of it is based in space, would be hard to expect a huge audience retention. Better off having guest team up eps I reckon.



    WW & Aquaman:

    The obvious questions may arise given most of the JL members have been dealt with.

    It would be easier (and I think the right move) not to have these two.

    Simply say that there has been no reason for any Themesciran to visit the world of men, and same goes for Atlanteans providing no events threaten the seas.



    Cyborg:

    Would be a good addition to this universe, would fit well, even if he does start off as a high school mate of Barry's and his dad to join the STAR Labs team (possibly to replace Wells?)



    I don't think these all sound too far fetched, and would be great nods to fans and a great way to individualise the CWDCU!!moreless
  • @ alisonmaguire

    8.0
    I Soooooooo much agree with you! I love this show too, but what in the world are they doing with Laurel. I cannot stomach watching her as the canary, and the fact that the show has created its own (iron man) is silly.

    What are they going to do with Oliver now, now that he is "exposed". How can they go further with a storyline of "arrow' when he can no longer be the arrow. Im confused....moreless
  • THE FORSAKEN

    Arrow "Al Sah-him" Review: Left Behind

    Al Sah-him made his grand appearance in Starling City in an effort to eliminate Nyssa. Team Arrow stood in his way.

  • IT'S GONNA BE LEGEND-ARY

    Why We Need the Combined Arrow and The Flash Spin-Off

    An expanded world is not just a cash-grab for The CW, but an opportunity for growth in an established universe.
