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

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 »

Awesome until S6. From mid-S7 it went a bit down hill
26 December 2020 | by dmphstassenSee all my reviews

S1 to S4 just really awesome! Flashbacks made sense and were really good to see. S5 & S6 also very good! Yes, some of the storylines may took a bit too long and got a bit annoying, but still enjoyable to watch. Unfortunately from mid-season 7 it started to get confusing.

Season 8 was really too confusing and weird in my opinion. It's a shame that from that point on, there were too many weird flashbacks and peeks into the future (and don't get me started about the references too other shows, ugh!). All of this just made it hard to keep up with the storyline.

BUT, I really did enjoy watching Arrow and even don't regret that I kept watching after it got confusing and weird. So, YES, I would still recommend you to watch Arrow, because overall, the show really is good..!
