Storyline

Oliver Queen and his father are lost at sea when their luxury yacht sinks, apparently in a storm. His father dies, but Oliver survives for five years on an uncharted island and eventually returns home. But he wasn't alone on the island where he learned not only how to fight and survive but also of his father's corruption and unscrupulous business dealings. He returns to civilization a changed man, determined to put things right. He disguises himself with the hood of one of his mysterious island mentors, arms himself with a bow and sets about hunting down the men and women who have corrupted his city. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?

Trivia

In the comics, Green Arrow often had a sidekick named Speedy, who in turn became the subject of a fairly controversial run of the book when he was revealed to have a drug addiction. In the TV show, Queen's sister has the nickname Speedy (to her brother at least) and is shown to be an occasional drug user. She would later meet Roy Harper, who in the comics was the original Speedy. Additionally in the comics, there was a second Speedy named Mia Deardon who, like Thea Queen was also a girl. Thea's middle name is Deardon, as is her mother's, Moira Deardon Queen. See more »

Goofs

In the promotional picture for the series it shows a shirtless Oliver. The scars from his time on the island are visible, but there is no tattoo. During the series Oliver has a tattoo on his chest, a tattoo that plays an important role in at least one episode (1x03 "Lone Gunmen") and has been visible in every other episode. See more »

Quotes

Oliver Queen: My name is Oliver Queen. For five years I was stranded on an island with only one goal - survive. Now I will fulfill my father's dying wish - to use the list of names he left me and bring down those who are poisoning my city. To do this, I must become someone else. I must become something else.

Bow Time
13 October 2012 | by (-) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed the pilot episode, and not being a comic book fan didn't feel lost at all. The story is set up extremely well, and you can see there is clearly a lot of potential there and a lot of places they can explore if they so desire. Along with "last resort" this was the best new pilot that i have seen in a while. I can see this running a long time, as it strongly reminds me of Nolan's Batman series and is completely different to the green arrow offered up in "Smallville" which i also thought was pretty good in its own unique way. The darker grittier Green Arrow is a much better one and i prefer the way he isn't being portrayed as someone who is extremely nice to everyone and only uses violence when its the only way out like a "batman" sort of character. You can also see how what happened at the start has affected him and the difference is portrayed well by the other cast members; all of whom seem to be suited to their respective roles.

It is too early to say whether this is gonna be around for ages and be known as the best comic book to TV show adaptation, however if the show can continue its quality that was shown in the pilot episode then the future is green for Arrow!
