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

Trivia

Willa Holland was publicly upset this series' version of the Suicide Squad was "killed off" in favor of Suicide Squad (2016). According to her, the showrunners "had to axe all of the characters before we even got to show them, which was a little annoying at first". 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

[Season 3 opening]
Oliver Queen: My name is Oliver Queen, after five years in hell, I have come home with only one goal: to save my city. Now others have joined my crusade. To them, I'm Oliver Queen. To the rest of Starling City, I'm someone else. I am something else.

Brilliant...Pacy...Brutal...Mysterious... Absolutely Fantastic Pilot!! Hope they continue in this manner!!
11 October 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Ever since we were kids we've all had our favourite superhero.. favourite comic book hero.. You want to be like them.. Its something every sane person has done and a good vigilante story is always appealing. So creating a superhero/vigilante series is a challenge all on its own. But Team Arrow does a really good job in their pilot. The Opening sequence building up to the title was brilliant.. enough lines to get you hooked.. the BG score really helped set the mood in, and once the title appears you are in. I've always believed that if a series has a good pilot with enough story to make you love and feel connected to the characters in it.. am sold!! Arrow does jus that!! no its not like this is jus bits and pieces of many cult classics we've had from Hollywood... its different in a way i cant explain.. u gotta watch it to understand!!

The entire cast does a pretty good job.. loved Paul Blackthorne's role specially!!

Stephen Amell does a brilliant job portraying this guy who is on a mission. He switches brilliantly from being the angry and brutal "arrow" (or Green arrow.. the char he is based on) to the "before" partying billionaire playboy brilliantly which reminds me of Christian bale's performance in Nolan's masterpiece. You feel connected to him.. You want to go this journey with him. The only question is will the rest of the series live up to this?? i sure do hope so cause am sold!! Bring it on!!
