pleasantly surprised. i thought the actor would be horrible (im comic reader and he doesnt scream Oliver Queen to me, still dont get why they didnt get the guy from smallville but so be it). he seems awkward in the fight scenes and the narration but other then that i think everyone did a great job acting wise. they kind of lost me with some characters (calling Dinah Lance by her middle name Laurel? why? Merlyn who is a Green Arrow villain is now his best friend. if he later becomes his enemy that could be some good Lex/Clark drama)and the way they kept saying the name of the city especially in the first news report was annoying. we get it their in starling city (horrible name) but it will always be Star City to me. i wonder how he will be given his code name. will it be green arrow or just arrow? who will name him? who names are on the list? and his bodyguard is so going to figure him out if he keeps disappearing on him like that (out of a moving car? that's not suspectious at all Oliver). cant wait for next week when Kelly Hu comes on as China White.

I was surprised by that show. I was curious because of all the buzz surrounding it so I DVRed it but I wasn't expecting to appreciate it. Shows great promise.

One of the best season premiere I've ever seen! Set the bar pretty high for the rest of the season. i can't wait to watch what the other episodes have to offer. Definitely a 5/5 from me! And, Steohen Amell doing those crazy pull-ups?!! U can put that in every episode I won't get bored :P Honestly, i was unsure if I should watch Arrow as I thought it would be another "Smallville" but now, after the premiere, I'm drawn into it. Definitely going to watch the second episodes. GOOD JOB casts and writers on the awesome series premiere :D

I enjoyed it immensley! My son is the superhero comic book authority in my house and he compared it to Batman,too....all the way down to their mansion! Stephen Amell was superb, and his acting ability was fine for me, as long as he keeps those 6-pack abs front and center! I liked Laurel, but his friend made me suspicious that he won't be a true friend as the episodes evolve. Good review Leigh!

Doesn't collide with any of my shows schedules. Bring on episode two!

I don't watch CW, and I have no idea what the comic books are all about. I tuned in for Susanna Thompson & Paul Blackthorne. Was surprised they were on a CW show, which skews so much younger. Pleased they have good parts, and the general story was entertaining. Laughed to see the American Ninja training, and want to know who the stunt guy is that's doing all the parkour work.

Great pilot. But too much in common with Revenge & Nikita... Except with a male lead

I found the show interesting enough to share watching it with my almost-13 year old son, who thought it was better than anything on TV except for NCIS and Perception.
I enjoyed the martial arts action, and I really enjoyed watching that young man work out with his abs rippling...seriously yummy bod, but he isn't too great at the brooding superhero acting stuff.
Still, I plan on giving it a few more episodes before I give up. I am sure my son will watch the whole season.

It was good, I didn't know what to expect Green Arrow is a self described "lefty" thru and thru and very political unlike Superman (was intended to be) for example.

I was a little confused when Oliver Queen, catches a guy and then just kills him to protect his identity, not to mention after he uses a guy as a human shield. There is no arrow with a boxing glove on it in this show. (or at least not yet) Lots of people get shot with guns and arrows, that isn't something that is going to make me not tune in again next week, but those are not the marks of a hero.

There also needs to be a little bit of explanation about where he learned to fight, that is not normally a skill that someone learns alone on a deserted island. He took out his own body guard effortlessly, who was a trained veteran tuff-guy.

I would also like to know where he learned how to use a metal grinder, where he got the brass knuckles for his bo on that island. I imagine they could have been left there by pirates, but that only goes so far.
