For anyone that watches Arrow or is interested in watching it, feel free to post about it. Also considering that season 2 started last night, please keep any spoilers in spoiler tabs. Arrow's a great show and it's definitely underated, I recommend for you guys to watch it.

Awwwyeah! I didn't follow Arrow completely in Season 1.. I didn't catch EVERY episode but I saw most. Caught the Season 2 premiere last night though and it was awesome, really excited to see where the show goes from here.

I enjoy this show, but it does get a little too 'teen-drama' at times.

Season 1 just ended a few weeks ago here in NZ. I kinda stopped watching it once they moved it from Wednesday to Thursday. Before that, it was on Monday. It was nice to see Huntress appear in the first season.

I liked arrow season 1 despite its problems, like stiff acting, inconsistent writing, sometimes getting a bit soap opera-y and...that ending! I didn't mind it too much but there were no bright sides to it! Damn depressing!
Even so looking forward to season 2, doesn't start in the UK till the 21st.

Shows like these make me wonder why they don't make shows starring the marquee heroes, like Batman, Superman, X-Men for example. There's "Smallville" but again there was no superhero suit there, or agents of SHIELD but no Captain America or Thor. Just my observation.

Holy. Crap. That Season 2 premiere.. Amell is really hyping this upcoming episode, too. Calling it a 42 minute movie.

I like Green Arrow, but I've always thought, if he loses his arrows, is he screwed?

Because the ones you mentioned are marquee heroes. If there were a tier system for superheroes, Batman, Superman etc would be at the top, with Green Arrow being 2nd-tier, maybe even 3rd-tier. Plus they can make much more money with those heroes through movies. The Birds of Prey also had a TV series, but it ended up getting cancelled. And the Wonder Woman TV series didn't even get past the pilot.

Yes and no. While he specializes with arrows, he also is good at hand-to-hand combat. Not on the same level as Batman, but still good nonetheless.

To me, Ollie has always been DC's Iron Man and vice versa. Rich comedic playboy that's very very well known for his suit/arrows, but is still very very great without them. 

 

This show just came out on Netflix so I'm going to be watch this soon.

"Laurel" is such a horrible actress. And why can't her name just be Dinah, for *censored*s sake

That was just an observation I came to myself. Tony leaned more to Olliver than Bruce for me with the humor.

I'm about halfway through the episode where Olliver gets arrested. Been really enjoying the show.
Actually... Olliver doesn't really need his money to fund him.. He uses arrows and bows. Quite sure that's way less than batgadgets and unibeam technology.

He does use a ton of specialty arrows though.

You know, this show does look interesting but I can't bear myself to watch it. The advertisements are really corny making it seem like it's this Peter Pan with a Hunting Bow killing people and at the same time, having this romantic relationship with some girl. It makes it seem like the demographic it seeks is teen girls and not the general audience.
