So many elements from previous tv shows (CW) have been combined to make this a great pilot! And I really hope it will continue its path of top excellent storylines, action and romance! The only thing I disliked was the lack of insecurity through the character's personality. In SmallVille there was a lot of insecurity, coming-of-age and I liked that a lot.

I stumbled on this last night and it is the BOMB!
Some very serious action and Oliver has some very serious
combat moves too..

Hope they can sustain it....

Is this completely fantasy (like Twilight fantasy or Vampire Diaries fantasy)? I couldn't be bothered to read all that.

The premiere was okey. Not awesome, but good enough for me to keep watching. Stephen Amell is seriously hot and i love it when he goes into '' Green Arrow'' mode, but a good actor he is not. I'd also prefer it if each villain's story took at least two episodes so that i'd have time to hate him. Love Oliver's sister, love their bond. Don't really like Laurel and i can tell right now i ain't gonna be shipping them. I prefer Laurel with Tommy who is indeed very likeable.

Changes to the character's back-story, from both the comics and the Smallvile version, are odd.

Why Starling City, instead of Star City?

Why was only his father killed, and his mother turned to a villain (perhaps trying to avoid to close a parallel to Batman?). Why Laurel Lance, instead of Dinah? And, will she still be the Black Canary?

if they want to create a new character, why not give him a new name? This way is weird.

"Admittedly, I have not read the comics and I'm not a fan of typical superhero shows, but I am a huge Batman fan and there are similarities between these two. Neither one has a magical superpower, everything they do is through experience and skill. This show has it all, interesting characters, mystery, love, drama and a bit of comedy.

You could not have put it better. My sentiments exactly. Amazing pilot! Let's only hope it keeps up that way.

The Pilot was pretty good. Kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. Stephen is amazing in how he uses his body. That chase scene where he jumps over a pipe while running, off the hook cool looking. Watched that part a couple of times. Story seems good, the little sister.. I never like kids that are smart mouths and there is always one. Geez, can we just not do that anymore, it's old. So no, don't like her. Laurel.. another not likeable person so far. How do you tell a guy that was missing for 5 years on a deserted island (who survived btw), that you wish he was dead. Wow, how much of an ass***e are you? And that reveal, the cop was the sisters father, or did I misunderstand that? Did think of the original Oliver from Smallville alot. Miss him, but he couldn't pull this one off. This character is much darker. All in all, very enjoyable.

I never thought that I would love this pilot. I think that it is AWESOME! Great lead in for Supernatural. I love Katie Cassidy as a blonde demon on Supernatural. She is much better as a bad-a-s-s! I don't like the brown haired demure Katie. I think that she was miscasted on Gossip Girl last season. This is a winner from the CW!

First of all, Stephen Armell's abs... *drool* Now that's eye candy.

On the other hand, never like Katie Cassidy and still don`t like her.

@leila: I have to disagree with you, this show is far from similar with Revenge. With Revenge, Emily is avenging the death of her father while here, it`s basically protecting the entire city and not exactly for his own selfish reasons.

However, the starting plot, "billionaire found alive who became super powerful while in the wild with his family wanting to control him and his fortune" plot, is a bit repetitive. Didn`t the cancelled show Tarzan start like that too?

I liked the Green Arrow from Smallville better even with Armen`s abs.

This show certainly drew me in and I`ll start following this one like a squeeling fan, but I hope that it won`t become too cliche either.
