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, Oliver Queen is known for sporting a trademark goatee. Stephen Amell reportedly allowed his beard to grow during the Season 2 hiatus and fashioned a goatee while shaving it and "looked like someone with a record trying to blend into a new city." When asked if his version would ever use the goatee, he tweeted "100% no. Never. Our show could go 14 seasons and a goatee will never appear. Hope that clears things up. Forever." An older Oliver, however, does sport the goatee in Legends of Tomorrow (2016), based on Frank Miller's "The Dark Knight Returns". 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 »

Quotes

Damien Darhk: [at a City Council meeting] So you're all fretting about this city dying. I'm here on behalf of an organization that wants you to let it die. See, death is a beautiful thing. We die, we go into the ground, our remains grow into flowers. It's only in the interval after dying that new things can sprout.

Great show ... if not for the Flashbacks from Hell
8 November 2013 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

Let's take a moment of mourning for the TV plot arcs of yore. Back when shows prioritized the characterizations above the action and, if indeed there was action, it took place precisely in the last 7 minutes of the episode, and was all done with before the close, giving the characters a chance to make light comic banter, close down the storyline, and give the audience a chance to go to the toilet. How many TV shows followed that formula I cannot say, but the number was in the 100s. Now all that has changed. You can now have action many times in the body of a show, it is permitted, even encouraged. And you have action even before the characterizations are fully developed. All this is positive evolution I think. But here the catch. There are no more "closed" story-lines. In the multi-band, multi-channel, multi-device electronic age, where viewers tend to have attention span of a hummingbird, nighttime TV has astonishingly borrowed the Rule Book of daytime soap operas and, lo!, plots never actually resolve, they just become more complex. ARROW is one of the best exponents of the new type of comic-book-derived drama, arguably as good as or even better than SMALLVILLE (which was, thematically, all over the map). Amell is great. He has a whispery kind of delivery which oddly makes what he says that much more interesting. The supporting cast is great. In fact the only thing that prevented me from giving this a "10" are the flashbacks. They are terrible. They are like some silent Hell the viewers must go through to get back to the actual episodes. It is almost as if the lead writer, as a small child, was locked in a closet with a DVD looping KUNG FU, and grew up to believe that you cannot advance 10 minutes of plot in the present, without 2 minutes of flashback to fortify it.
