Arrow

Anyone else see the season premier of Arrow last night? It's on the CW, so maybe not I found it surprisingly good, despite the fact that I'm not really a DC comics characters fan, aside from mainly Batman, but I guess I never realized Green Arrow is basically Batman + Hawkeye. Not really as awesome as either of them imo, but a combo nonetheless.

As far as the show is concerned, I can see the story getting kind of annoying at times, like Smallville did from time to time, but I found the action scenes to really stand out when you compare them to other TV shows. A lot of that has to do with the actor I'm assuming, who seems to be able to handle everything the role asks of him pretty well. Overall the episode made me want to keep my eye on the show for at least a few more episodes to see how the story pans out, and watch some more action.

I thought the show was a little cheesy at times (what do you expect it is from the CW) I agreed with you though. I loved the action in this, I also loved the pilot because it set it up where I am actually looking forward to the next episode. I think the whole concept is really interesting and I hope that this show makes it to the next season!

WELL!!..still a pretty good show. Action is still keeping me going, though some of the characters are kind of annoying because of how the show is written. Oh well, I'm used to annoying characters on cable shows.

Basically everything Oliver Queen/Green Arrow and detective guy related is great. Everything else is so-so.

I'm not really interested, personally. I've liked Green Arrow over the years but have never been a huge fan. Plus I couldn't in my wildest dreams see something like this ending up good. Just my opinion. Though I hear Deathstroke is making an appearance soon. Kind of want to see him, just for the heck of it.

Awesome..not much of a DC/Green Arrow buff myself, but I know Deathstroke Apparently he's making an appearance in the Nov 6th episode. I totally missed the easter egg in the first episode though.

I must have been in the bathroom for that because that's really...really obvious.


I'm curious whether or not it was Deathstroke who appeared at the end of last episode, not in his costume though.

Overall I think if he's in the show it'll definitely be worth checking out for the fight scenes.

Katie Cassidy is nice to look at the and the action scenes are cool. But the guy who plays Green Arrow's acting is atrocious.

I watched the second episode and I like it. I think I miss all the references since I don't read the comic books. I like this show though, it definitely keeps me looking forward to wednesdays.

It's still kinda..gay, like Smallville was. Perhaps even more so, I don't know why writers for the WB need stupid drama in their shows. The action still stands out though as I've already said so whaaateeeever...

Here I am waiting for Deathstroke and they add in Deadshot! Awesome! One less bad guy to give Batman trouble I guess.

Wasn't too bad. I'm glad some story-related events occurred, though otherwise I don't pay attention too much to the story anymore. Other than that I am glad they are actually adding some villains, even if Deadshot isn't a Green Arrow villain. Kind strange how he died (still possible he didn't I guess) the way Deathstroke should have taken an arrow. I guess Deathstroke will hopefully be a recurring character. Already confirmed for a few episodes so most likely I guess.

Yeah I wasn't expecting him to kill Deadshot.. That was weird, but at the end of the episode, he revealed who he was to his body guard I was like OMG! I can't wait for the next episode.

Not sure if it was on a night early or what but I just finished up this weeks episode..as bad as the acting and writing can get (CW after all) I'm glad the fights are good, especially now that Deathstroke the Terminator is in the house! Apparently Oliver and I have the same birthdate as well, just a few years apart, go us

Yeah that's when it is on. I still have to watch this weeks episode. I tried to watch it, but CW was pissing me off because it was lagging and stuff, so hopefully I can watch the episode today after speech class.

Last nights episode had the Huntress and they are obviously moving toward adding Merlyn into the mix as well considering how his life and his relationships with Oliver and Dinah are going. I think this show needs more bad actors and more Batman characters

Remotely good about sums it up The action works to balance out the horrible acting, though it's been a bit thin for a couple of episodes now.

Yeah the episode two weeks ago was really bad, but I love the addition of the Huntress. She adds some spice to the new episodes. This episode was really interesting I thought and I love the action in it. The episode was very predictable I mean obviously Oliver and the Huntress are going to begin a romantic relationship that was obvious. I am really enjoying the show though and just go into the show knowing that it is on the CW and that it isn't going to have the best acting.

The last episode was really good in my opinion.

So far I'm really enjoying this and it seems to be doing pretty well in the ratings...as far as a CW show is concerned.

Ive been watching this on hulu. its an alright show to watch when theres nothing else to watch. The actress who played Huntress was horrible and i hope they redesign Deathstroke's mask. the molded brows make him look lame.

I agree on all accounts, though I think I've gotten over Deathstroke's mask after seeing him a few times. I'm just glad they didn't give him a really stupid costume I guess.

I'm curious as to how the Dark Archer/Green Arrow rivalry will pan out. I have a feeling they'll make it a Green Goblin sort of scenario and have Tommy Merlyn become Merlyn after he sees Green Arrow kill his father (the Dark Archer). Or just have him become a 2nd Dark Archer if they choose not to use the name Merlyn.
