I find this series quite amazing! Just the storyline and how he turns out after 5 years 'alone' on an island he becomes a fighting machine! This has encouraged me to take up archery, obviously its impossible to become as good as the film portrays, but one can wonder...
I really like this show, there's romance, action and the plot is intriguing enough to keep watching and wanting to know more about the whole "You've failed this city!!" is a tad tacky but I've gotten used to it!! But worse than that is Timmys anoys is too much of a secundary character, I hope that changes!! it:)
The female characters are not as great as they could be, they all exist mostly to be ornaments and for male characters progression, yes including the tech girl.
The casting of many actresses is disappointing as well, aside from the Tech girl and Oliver's mother, the actresses in this show suck at acting. Especially the CW pet Katie Cassidy, who in their right minds make the most mediocre actress a leading lady, yup the show isnt serious about its female characters, they think its enough for them to pout their lips and smile to the camera.
Anyway overall many of the characters could be more interesting, let hope this show irons some of those kinks in season 2, otherwise this wont last beyond season 3.
Well I'm thoroughly impressed with this series. Someone wrote that they never thought they would find a show to replace Smallville. Whilst I agree (sort of), I don't think its a replacement. Arrow is a great series (so far) which seems to be on the right track. The flash-backs to Oliver's past are amazing, just letting you know enough information, but making you want to know more. Then it follows through to the present time, and Oliver is everything you want him to be, and more. That's what I love about it. I imagine, in my head, what the character Oliver would be like, and Stephen Amell portrays him superbly. I believe the whole thing. Even when his character is first stranded on the island and is naive and weak. Big 10 outta 10 for this and I hope the series continues this way ....
Another cracking episode from a show that keeps on delivering... Can't wait to see how this plays out next wk.
Quick note - towards the end, when Oliver and sullen faced Tommy were together, and Tommy had the one question he wanted to ask his vigilante-ninja-assassin best buddy; Shouldn't that have been TEACH ME!!!!!?
Arrow is a great show. It's fast, there is no around like in so many other superheroes shows. And almost everyone (except laurel) is interesting as character. And flashbacks are so good that I can't wait two worlds to collide. And, Felicity is the best!
Im enjoying this show a lot but episode 5 is still my favourite!!! Hope Laurel and Oliver can be together soon or at least have something happen between them as a teaser. . that daughter of a criminal that Oliver was with a while back is so gonna come back for a killing spree or a green arrow themed attack of revenge. Gosh some women are just so sensitive!
I am hooked! I can't wait to find out what happens on the next episode both in Starling City and on the island. I like Amell's acting. He uses his eyes very effectively. I also like the partnership between Diggle and Oliver.
Somehow I like this show. First I thought that Stephen Amell was just an average actor but then I figured that he's supposed to play this very distant, expressionless and socially awkward person because of the 5 years isolation. Lately he has opened up a little and I like that. It kinda got boring just watching him being like statue all the time. All in all the casting is good. (Tech girl for FTW!)
As a show this is not the best there is. I just happen to be a (super)hero addict and once I get attached to a show it's too hard to let go. Then again I do want to know what happens next. Arrow has the basic structure: each episode has it's own story and at the same time there's this bigger storyline going on. I wouldn't mind letting go of the individual stories of every episode.
I for one do not care for the flashbacks. I want to know what happened in the island but rather than having flashes I would like to have an episode (or episodes) dedicated to the subject. Occasionally the flashes seem to give something more to the story but most of the time they're just forced.
But what is with Oliver being shirtless sometimes without an apparent reason? Yes, he has a nice body but come on. First it was nice to watch, now I can barely stop myself from counting how many minutes each episode devotes to it.
A little corny But i def. want to keep watching. I'll given them a chance. I DO want to know what happens next. I loved Justin Hartleys Oliver! I LOVE that (in smallville) him & Lex knew each other as kids, & he was picked on by oliver. Really showed what kind of guy he was B4. I also like that his parents were dead, & that Lexs dad had had them killed. Justin should have a guest spot in a later episode/season.
Let's face it, THATS why this shows op. He made everyone fall in love with Oliver Queen.
Stephen Amell is the hottest thing on two legs that I have seen for a long time. I love this programme and it is so fast and full of action. I think some of the womens characters could been made a bit more stronger. I am not sure about "mother queen". She has done some bad things but is acting like mother hen. I find her character very confusing. David Ramsey character interacts well with the arrow, they are showing some strong male bonding. Come on writers give the arrow some real love.
I love the show don't get me wrong on that, but there are a couple things that could make it better. First off they really need to have an episode that is really dedicated to Olivers time on the island because honestly the flashbacks are getting really annoying when they are only quick snippets especially since every snippet they show is quite badass and makes you more want to see stuff about the island than about whats happening in the present. Second this is a superhero show stop wit the love triangles and akwardness between Oliver loreli and tommy, it's not a soap opera. Sure it may evolve into something bigger and set up a reason for Tommy to go darkside against Oliver but you don't need to have it shown every freaking episode we get it there banging and she's Olivers ex big whoop. Third and foremost, stop with Theas bullshit she is the most annoying character on the freaking show it is pure daytime soap opera crap with her she is just a spoilt little rich bitch who can't make up her mind if she is a caring sister or a complete bitch who is all pissy because her brother doesn't get her or whatever, newsflash he was on a fucking island for five fucking years give him a break and stop being such an immature brat with daddy and mommy issues. Besides those things I really enjoy the show. But seriously change Theas attitude or ditch her otherwise I could honestly see viewings going down just because of her.
