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

In the comics, Green Arrow had bright blond hair and wore a small mask to hide his identity. Also prior to the New 52 relaunch he had a prominent bright blond goatee, and first wore a Robin Hood style hat, later with no hat, where instead he used a hood. But in the television show, much like his New 52 counterpart, Arrow wears only a green hood (deep and large enough to always cover his face in shadow) and there is no goatee, only stubble. Also instead of a mask he wore some green face paint around his eyes that looks similar to his comic book mask to hide his identity (until the events of Season 2's Three Ghosts where he receives a proper mask), and although he is blond, it is more dark or dirty blond.

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.

A Refreshing Take On The Vigilante Story
11 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was kind of sketchy when I first heard about this series, considering the terrible job that was done with 'The Cape'. I'm pleased to say that all of my doubts were unfounded. Arrow is a darn good show, and the first Pilot episode is very strong and leaves little confusion behind this vigilante's origins. I felt that the main actor properly conveys a somber and mature attitude in contrast to the description we receive of him as a partying playboy before the shipwreck. The action is intense and not over the top or completely unbelievable. What we're presented with is a young man whose 5 years spent on an island have shaped him up into an agile warrior tasked with cleaning up his city from corruption. I can't wait to see what lies in store through future episodes, and I certainly hope this show delivers the goods. So far, I believe we're in store for some quality television this fall.
