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

The shots showing the Queen Consolidated Towers are stock footage of the real life Belgacom Towers set in Brussels, Belgium. The Q-Consolidated logo was added in post production. See more »

Goofs

In two second-season episodes, chest compressions to restart Oliver's and Roy's hearts were done incorrectly. They are pushing down on the person's actual chest, rather than two finger widths above the sternum. That would damage the ribs, lungs and other vitals. See more »

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!
