Pleasantly surprised by this show! Wasn't sure about the spinoff without Hartley, but this is working. Really excited to see where the story goes.
I never watched Smallville but I DVR'ed the first ep of this and I really liked it. It reminds me a bit of "Heroes". I read GA as a child but I don't remember much of the plot line. I'm really looking forward to the next ep.
I finally got to see the pilot and liked it quite a bit. I was a big fan on JH on Smallville and thought he did a great job as Green Arrow. But I think this show has enough of a different slant on the character as well as being more dark and less preachy/morally conscious than SV that I will enjoy it on its own. I'm definitely curious to learn more about what Ollie's dad told him, how his mom is involved and how he's going to turn into a real crimefighter. Also - I liked the twist that the main cop is the father of the ex-gf and the one who died on the boat. It's going to be good friction. Plus it doesn't hurt that the guy is beyond ripped and smokin hot ;)
I'm liking this show so far.
The story is really picking up! I wonder who the hooded guy who shot Oliver on the island is? Did Green Arrow in the comics have a mentor?
I'm finally caught up on the first 2 episodes. I am really enjoying it so far however I could do without the voiceovers...
I have been pleasantly surprised so far. I will keep tuning in. I also got the impression that maybe he did interact with someone on the island; a mentor or a foe. It would explain learning Chinese and his fighting techniques better than just living alone and learning survival skills.
