Re: Arrow - Premieres tonite

This was surprisingly not completely terrible.

I'm trying to "do the right thing" and use legal sources for TV shows. Trying to teach my kids, the right way.

Umm...you do realize once your kids learn the birds and the bees, they skies the limit when it comes to downloading (unless you lock down your network, desktops, laptops, etc.).

Hence why, I'll be baby sitting the router.

Even then you are just driving your kids to being smarter than you. A locked down router wouldn't stop me from my porno, and illegal downloads.

A bummer CW doesn't just rebroadcast it's shows over the weekend.

Don't know if it was just because they were the show premieres but both Arrow and Beauty & the Beast were rebroadcast last night on CW.

I saw that, but my DVR was already programed. Grimm and Haven were on as well.

So far this has been a VERY GOOD Show!

I was surprised by how well they put this together. The storyline fits in with what was shown on Smallville and with certain parts from the comics.

I will keep watching this one for sure.

I find the main actor a bit weak... his narration is also robotic in nature

Okay, it's not half bad. Actually, it kind of reminds of "Revenge", only for boys with the whole superhero bit

Also, Stephen Amell is pretty damn easy on the eyes Yum!

i'm quite curious to see if this show goes as off the rails as Smallville (a show, which, as a dedicated Superman fan, i generally despised).

i want to see where they're going with Dinah, given Black Canary is one of the premiere "hotties" in the standard DC Comics continuity.

I have read close to zero comics so continuity, canon, etc with the original comic books means nothing to me. I guess that's a good thing?

Probably. Sometimes when movies or tv shows deviate away from books (or comic book) it really grates on some.

The narrative just seems really cheesy, as does the premise. But I am enjoying the action though.

I thought the same thing about the second episode. I did not like it.
I thought the pilot was really good though.

Yeah. I had no idea he was copying someone. Always figured he learned those moves trying to survive, hunting and shit.

That was probably the best part of the episode. The rest of the episode, especially the part about the detective's two daughters, seemed pretty soapy.

I figured he was starving on the island and learned to hunt to stay alive, but going up against an archer seems like it would be a much better story.

apparently, i need to watch more of the "soap operas" you guys are watching. cause i've never seen one with a vigilante archer on a rampage and fighting Kelly Hu.

Oliver Queen, like any "superhero" requires motivation for his actions, and consequences for his choices. his relationships with his family and former lovers are a huge part of this. having hurt the feelings of the "love of his life" (Dinah), he must balance the selfish mistakes of his past with his desire to "save" his city. i think the conflict with the honorable police detective, that just so happens to be the father of two of this former flames is great fodder for this balancing act.

additionally, Oliver Queen has always been portrayed as a bit of a ladies man.

I agree but it's annoying to see one guy being involved with every person in the family. The police had to be the father of the daughter he got killed while cheating on his other daughter. If they had a mother he'd probably be involved with her too.
