Yeah it's alright. Some of Oliver's monologue dialogue is kinda iffy but overall it's entertaining. Hopefully, they get into the stuff with Deathstroke's mask this episode.

That little bit with the tennis balls was pretty cool. :)

So far it's a good pilot. Waiting for deadshot.

Yep that was pretty good. Definitely added to my watch schedule.

Definitely better paced than Smallville, though this is more about the hero aspect that Smallville was.

Loved the character development and there's a lot of potential here for future plots. This show will be part of my Wednesday nights.

I liked it, good stuff. 
 
I suppose Roy Harper is completely replaced by his sister though. :(

What does a person do when they don't have access to the CW channel and cannot afford to get a new tv box?

Ridiculously bad.

I really hate that they put in a "little sister is doing drugs because of you!" subplot.

I enjoyed the first episode, one thing I'm not sold on is Dinah being called Laurel...

@Crackdown: I think you can download the CW app and watch it there. Or find a site that streams tv shows.

I still haven't watched it but in a few hours I would have.

I thought it was a shame they got so hurried with it. A bit slower paced, allow US to wonder what the hell is going on with Ollie, don't throw the guy into an immediate "clean up the city" plotline. We'll see how it goes, and I liked it, but I thought it could have been better executed. That said, the freerunning was cool as hell, and action sequences seem flawless. It often takes new shows a bit to settle in, here's hoping!

Agreed. Hope she makes the switch to being called Dinah as the series progresses.

That being said, I like it so far. Good start. Not 100% keen on some of the dialogue (particularly the monologuing) or the acting but definitely going to keep watching.
