This is a surprisingly strong show. Liking it so far. Although I'm a comic fan I dont know much about the character. Spotted David Nutter is directing. He directed a lot of Star Trek NG.

Crikey, this could be the best superhero series ever!! I thought it was going to be rubbish but it's well written and well acted. A must see!! Feel sorry for that Digs guy though. He's just trying to do his job! But there again, he could be one of his mum's cronies. Never saw that twist coming!!

The 2nd episode is even better than the pilot! And I have heard snippets of what is coming. Stephen Amell is so excited about the show, I think he may be the hopeful actor ever at the moment. He just wants it to do well so badly! He has said that the first few episodes is all introductory, and then they focus on the other characters and then it gets VERY intense. Can't wait to see that happen.

The main character is really clever - since he's been stranded on the island, he's learnt not only to be an expert in archery and martial arts, he's also an expert computer hacker - despite not seeing a computer in five years!

True about the computer bit but he went through to hell and back and must have been properly challenged on the island to learn all the martial arts and everything. It makes more sense in the 2nd episode, and after what I saw on that episode, I cannot wait for Episode 3.

Have recorded it (so as to skip ads) hope it's good, got a soft spot for The Green Arrow. Shame DC have decided to go the tv route and not the "Supermax" film thats been in the pipeline forever. Would like to have seen GA in the JLA movie as well.

Seriously?? The combat stuff I can live with, but to think someone could be away from technology for five years then suddenly come back and instantly hack into someone's finances is ludicrous.

I'm not knocking the show overall, I enjoyed it - but the computer stuff was really OTT. Five years is a lifetime in terms of computer hacking. Anyone that thinks that was plausible is insane.

I understand what your saying but as the previous poster said we don't know what Oliver Queen knew in regards to computer tech before he was stranded, yes five years from technology is a long time but he may have been some M.I.T grad or something like that beforehand, also alot went on on the island and he may have gained some super Intelligence power which allows him to instantley look or read up on something and know is right away..... just saying

Already seen episode 2 and it's much better than the pilot, plus a 'omg' scene at the end.

rather enjoyed it myself ..... but perhaps he should use more weaponry like a boomerang or something other than his bow!

He said on Facebook that the first few episodes he was only restricted to do certain things and certain moves. They then decided he was learning quick and taught him more complicated moves... so I reckon it could be the same with the weapons he uses. He stated that he isn't always going to use the bow.
