My DVR didn't record so I'll have to check this one out online. So far, the show has a nice tone to it with action and mystery. I don't think the show is great but it is enjoyable.

Still not digging this; the villains are lame, lame, lame!  I'll give a few more episodes, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

I really enjoyed this episode. I thought the flashbacks with oliver carrying his dead fathers corpse was reall raw. I enjoyed the christian bale like bruce wayne style when oliver showed up to the ground breaking fo the applied science building! solid acting on stephen's part. I thought this episode wqs a solid b ! Keep it going Arrow!!

 Was watching this show and had to cringe, lol, the scene with Laurel's Father was so Laughable...

Detective Lance speaking to Oliver - "People seem to die around you....Stay away from my daughter."

Add the fact that Arrow seem's to be doing an even worse than Christian Bale's gruff voice.......

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

LAME!!!    

So very Lame.

Considering how 'Smallville' got its start by downplaying Superman/Superboy, this show is starting to slip into an early grave, i.e., 'Green Lantern'.  Nobody cares about the romance of the hero, just have better villians that are not limited to uzis and karate chops.  Green Lantern suffered because it strayed away from what made him a superhero.  Still too early to call it, but Arrow is going to have to do better than recycle the 'Smallville' formula-that failed on several occasions.  The CW would be better off bringing back Aquaman.  Oh, wait.  They would probably start him off as a tadpole, with a LOT of ANGST and grow up wearing green shorts with orange tops.  I agree with Darthbob, villians are super lame.

 if smallville failed then why did it last 10 seasons? Arrow is nothing luke smallville, its darker then that show ever was.

I dont understand some of the comments in the review, complaining about the robin hood qualities in Green Arrow? oooookey

 

Anyhow Im liking it, I dont find it soap opera-ish at all, comic books, people seem to forget also rely heavily on their romances and personal relationships, sure it becomes more cheesy and a tad more prominent, as said in the review, to reach wider audiences but I dont think it should be something that should even be noted as a negative, in fact Im liking the Oliver/Dinah stuff, specially cause its taken all 8 minutes of two episodes (if you ad all their scenes together), I know its the CW, we have Smallville as a backround so I get the predjudice but I belive that although it can easily become that, so far it hasnt.

 I've enjoyed the first two episodes.  I foresee a larger force behind the villains listed in Olly's book.  Not sure who though.  

I do disagree about Amell "having it over'" Justin Hartley.  At least Hartley didn't go to the Chris O'Donnell school of facial expression (yes, that's singular).  Maybe Amell graduated with Kristin Stewart.
