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

Caity Lotz shared some thoughts during an interview on a sex scene that took place during the Crisis on Earth X crossover. "They always shut down sets anytime there's like a sex scene, or like when Chyler Leigh and I had our one-night stand on the crossover, and we were naked in bed. They cleared out the entire set, and everyone makes a huge deal out if it. They're like 'Are you comfortable? We'll clear everybody out. If there's ever anything that feels uncomfortable, just yell stop, and we'll stop.' And I'm like 'Can you just calm down? Everyone just take a break. Just be normal.' That's always nerve-wracking."

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

Slade Wilson: I'm going to tear everything he cares about away from him, destroy those who choose to follow him, corrupt those he loves. Once he has lost everyone and everything he values, I will drive an arrow through his eye.

Given up
10 October 2017 | by petragreenSee all my reviews

The first 2 seasons of the show was amazing however after that it got stale and boring. I decided to give up less than half way through season 5. The flashbacks become uninteresting. The villains after 2 seasons are boring. Love story is soap opera material. Season 4 made the show unrealistic with the sci-fi magic. Arrow was more interesting when he was working alone without any sidekicks.
