    Anyone else catch this show? TBH, I enjoyed this pilot more than most of what I've seen so far this season. This seems to be Smallville's 'replacement' in the superhero genre at CW.
    For us older folks, it's a reminder of the Batman series days, but mercifully updated and better. Check it out!

    I've watched the show, I really really like it even I am not familiar with the comics. The only thing that bugs me is that IMHO, the main guy really, really, really reminds me of Chris O'Donnell at NCSI LA :lol: :lol:

    I finally watched it. Comcast put CW shows On Demand! I wasn't expecting much, but I really liked it. Did you notice that Oliver's 'bodyguard/driver' is the same actor that plays NYC's mayor on CBS's Blue Bloods? And his mother is part of the conspiracy/bad stuff that's going on!!! :devil: That one took me by surprise.

    I'm still watching and enjoying this show. Some good twists and turns. I'm curious how the mother thing will work out; I do like the actress playing her. And I like the flashbacks that tell us what he experienced on the island.
    One of the best new shows, IMHO. Some other ones I sampled I've already given up on, but this one I'm sticking with for now.

    The mother is played by Susanna Thompson. You may remember her as Lt. Col. Hollis 'Holly' Mann on NCIS for a few episodes. She's also guest-starred on Without a Trace and The X-Files.

    CW announced last week that Arrow will get full 22episode season. It's also been getting network's highest ratings than any other show during the past few years.

    Don't really like Laurel that much, but we shall see what happens next sesaon and have show has one or 2 that you like or dislime more than the others.

    I am not familiar with the comics either Ducky, but I kind of like that because uit means I am not expecting things that may or may not happen.

    Arrow
    Season 4 Premieres Wednesday, October 7th, on The CW.

    http://www.cwtv.com/shows/arrow/

    Series Overview
    The series follows Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), billionaire playboy of Starling City, who spends five years shipwrecked on a mysterious island. Upon his return to Starling City, he is reunited with his mother, Moira Queen (Susanna Thompson), his sister, Thea Queen (Willa Holland), and his friend, Tommy Merlyn (Colin Donnell). The first season focuses on Oliver rekindling his relationships and spending his nights hunting down and sometimes killing wealthy criminals as a hooded vigilante. He uncovers a conspiracy to destroy "The Glades", a poorer section of the city that has become overridden with crime. John Diggle (David Ramsey, Mayor Poole on CBS's Blue Bloods) and Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) assist Oliver in his crusade. Oliver also reconnects with ex-girlfriend, Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy), who is still angry over his role in her sister's presumed death. The first season also features flashbacks to Oliver's time on the island, and how it changed him; this continues in subsequent seasons.

    In season two, Oliver has vowed to stop crime without killing criminals, and comes under attack from
    Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett), a man from Oliver's time on the island who resurfaces with a vendetta against him. Oliver must also contend with outside forces attempting to take over Queen Consolidated, guilt from decisions he made in the past, and secrets harbored by his family and friends. Oliver grows to accept aspiring vigilante Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) as his protégé, and begins to receive assistance from Laurel's father, Officer Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne). Oliver also gains another ally; a mysterious woman in black, who is eventually revealed to be Laurel's sister, Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), who had survived her ordeal at sea years prior.

    In season three, Arrow has become a public hero in Starling City following Slade Wilson's defeat. Queen Consolidated is sold to wealthy businessman, scientist, and aspiring hero
    Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh). Oliver struggles to bring his family back together, an old enemy returns, and Oliver becomes embroiled in a conflict with Ra's al Ghul (Matthew Nable). After a rocky start, Laurel sets out to follow in Sara's footsteps as the Black Canary. John Diggle struggles with his new role as a family man, as Oliver no longer wants John in the field after the birth of his daughter, while Felicity Smoak begins a new career as Vice President of Palmer Technologies (formerly Queen Consolidated).
