Yes and Yes! I'd seen the adverts for it and was leaving it because I don't normally bother with DC Comics TV series. Can't wait for the new series which is out in October by the way.

I really liked the series but thought ending was a bit rushed.

Looking forward to new season though

I really enjoyed Arrow's first season . I think my favourite episodes have come, apart from The Odyssey - post Dead to Rights, showing that there has been a definite increase in quality because the first half of the season's episodes were largely forgettable but fun. I'll certainly be around for Season 2, can't wait to see where the show goes.


Positives for the show in general:

+DC Comics!
+Green Arrow opened to a wider audience.
+Potential of adapting comic characters onto the show - we've already had A.R.G.U.S (DC's S.H.I.E.L.D) & The Blackhawks, for example, among several others - Deathstroke being one.
+Great Action, interesting plots.
+Felicity, Ollie Diggle & Slade are awesome.
+The Doctor Who actors appearing on the show.
+Geoff Johns! (One of my favourite comic writers, writing Dead to Rights)
+Flashback sequences.
+Some very strong episodes.
+Some very unpredictable epsiodes.


-John Barrowman and Fyers are both James Bond-esque villains. Cliched.
-Most of the villains are forgettable aside from Deathstroke, Barrowman & Fyers
-The Lance family are boring and uninteresting until the finale, as are Thea & Roy Harper.
-Some episodes are overcrowded with plots.
-Any episode featuring The Huntress.
-Can feel like a rip off of Batman Begins at times.

Have to sy I've been gripped by Arrow. Thought he was a pretty shit chaarcter in Smallville (which was also pretty shit, pretty much only watched it for the eye candy), but in Arrow he's seriously cool and well worth watching.

Can't say I really enjoyed the show. Not the best way to portray Green Arrow if you ask me, and I'm a sucker for DC characters. (Normally.)

Can't say I dislike it though.


Please have a look at my space marines.

My girlfriend said she didn't like Daft Punk. She's single now. Hahahahahaha lol, just kidding. She's dead...
