    Arrow TV Show

    Last night was the debut of Arrow, the new Super Hero TV show about the Green Arrow. He was never my favorite character and actually until some of the versions we've gotten on cartoons like the Brave and the Bold I really felt he was a waste of a character.

    The pilot turned out to be pretty good. It established a lot of the history quickly and had good pacing. I think the actors did a fine job and was impressed with the amount of Green Arrow references they fit in there without hitting the viewer over the head with it. Okay, the near constant Speedy nickname was a little much but otherwise not to shabby.

    It wasn't perfect by any means. I doubt a kid on an island for five years could have built a computer hacking arrow so quickly and it was too obvious in the wall glowing to not have been located by the criminals. It was a better pilot then Smallville.

    Yeah, that was a little obvious, but did they really specify how much time had gone between him building his lair and him attacking the guy? I mean they went through a montage of him knocking stuff down, getting supplies, hooking it all up and training. They didn't make it seem very long, but doing all that should have taken at least a couple of weeks if he's doing that all by himself, right? He probably could have spent part of that time making arrows like the computer hacking arrow.

    Much better than I expected. I watched all of Smallville, despite cringing through huge swaths of it, and though I kind of liked their depiction of Oliver Queen, this one is already much more interesting.

    Actually killing people with his arrows and hands made ia big difference, to me.

    To me too. It came close to killing my interest in the show.

    I find it hard to sympathise with a protagonist who leaves that large a trail of bodies.

    Really? To me, that would be essential.
    _____ just tried to KILL me. Do I incapacitate him, kill him first, or pat him on the back for trying, but not being quite in the right league? Granted, Incapacitating is more acceptable (both to personal goals and not bringing down an even more massive police man-hunt), but if it is a question of him or me, It will be I who survive.

    A lot of the people he killed in the first episode hadn't tried to kill him, or even met him before he perforated them.

    The ads are #$%ing Awful! And there's no way to skip them. I can't even find a way to turn down the volume.
