They busted out Stroke's mask in the first episode......does this mean he was there on the island with Ollie O_O

THIS... and.... does it mean Deathstroke's got a nifty eyepatch thanks to Ollie?

I loved it. Especially Laurel Lance, she was awesome.

Right? Cause the arrow is straight through the eye hole.......I like the start of this show so far.

It was cool, it was weird seeing him kill everybody but this is another version of Ollie and maybe he will learn and become less violent. ,I understand he can't shoot boxing gloves but he could shoot at non-lethal parts of the body or something.

and i hope onomatope (spelling is probably wrong) will be in this.

It wasn't bad, seemed very similar to Nolan's Bruce Wayne, though. I liked that he is more ruthless than ordinary heroes, and that his entire character is simpler. No fancy gadgets, super powers, etc. His super hero persona was cool, Ollie was not.

I found it odd that they locked the door to the Hunt's office yet GA pushed a guy through it and it broke easily.

Can't wait to find out more from the island, that's looking to most interesting.

The pilot was decent but a lot of the acting and the script was very cheesy. And people really need to get over the whole killing, alcohol, drugs, sex thing. Yes it's a lot of taboo stuff but so what. I think it could be toned down a bit only because it felt a little like they were trying too hard to make it seem like the series is dark and gritty and all that. Personally I'd rather see this stuff than a boxing glove arrow though.

Enough with the Dark And gritty stuff people. When all the characters look like super models and the dialogue is decent at best it takes away from any gritty feel.

Thought it was really good for a pilot, though throughout the entire run I was like: hey, this looks so much like the Luthor mansion... turns out it was.

On the CW, the premiere of Arrow scored a 1.3 among adults 18-49. It was also the most-watched CW premiere in 3 years, and gave the network its best adult 18-49 ratings in two years (since 10/13/10). The dreamers were right! Supernatural earned a 1.0, up two tenths from last week's 0.8 adults 18-49 rating.Alth

If it can keep those ratings, that would be awesome. Although that is very unlikely

why is it unlikely? Even if ratings drop, there are still other shows on cw that are way behind arrow in ratings.

I believe, the only competition is TVD. Being in the top 2 guarantees that there would be no cancellation

I agree but premiere ratings are usually high because everyone wants to check out the new show. In the following weeks more than half of those viewers usually loses interest and drop the show eventually and that can lead to a show's demise. For example, in this thread there are already quite a number of people saying they would either drop the show or give the show a few more weeks so yeah. Nevertheless I am not worried right now. As long as the show can develop a big enough fan base like Smallville did then it would be okay

@ThomasElliot: I wonder how Ollie mastered martial arts on a lost island... could Deathstroke have been his teacher ?

One thing to note is that people online are often not a real projection of reality.

Secondly, it is the second highest rated show in CW for the whole week.

So its pretty much safe. Even if half of the viewers are gone, it'll still be safe considering at 0.7, it'll still be better than other shows like 90210. But I have faith in the show.

Good point. For Arrow sake I hope that you are right

I get the feeling his sister is going to die. I know it sounds like jumping the gun after one episode, but for some reason I really think she won't live.

I thought the show was okay overall. Nothing makes me say "OMG! I gotta see this!" at the moment. Probably mostly because I have no interest in Green Arrow as a character and I have no clue who he is until now. He has never been grabbing my attention as much as Batman, Wolverine and X-Men.

However, I will continue to watch the second episode and hope it will grow on me. The story has to be really good and stick me like a glue. I shall see about that. :)

I was pretty impressed with the pilot. Im not as familiar with the character as I would like to be, but I was pretty entertained and especially seeing it was a CW series.

@Tyrus: So you think DC/Marvel or whatever should not try to make their characters better if another comic's character is similar and popular? ps I like your background. Invincible ftw
