Arrow (2012– ) TV Series Review

Our Comments –

“Arrow” the TV Series apparently is some big hit right now, why? I was told I should check out the show and to give it a chance due to the Pilot being so dull. Well I started watching it from the very beginning Pilot, and I agree the Pilot was the kill switch. I made it through the Pilot of Arrow and right off the bat noticed the story-line of Batman rolling right along. Not a bad copycat to the Batman story but very noticeable. I watched a few more episodes, now this is TV we are talking about so of course it is gonna be cheezy and lame from time to time, but this show kept getting cheezier.

It became Batman and CatWoman all of a sudden and of course everyone in the show eventually knew the secret. Oh and in this show everyone is a Billionaire, it’s all about love affairs, and of course tossing up the conflict between the different in Revenge and Justice. I watched and watched, I was so bored after a few episodes I started falling a sleep to it. If you see one episode and then watch old school “Days of our Lives” you’ll know the whole series.

I can see where the youth, and elderly would be into this show and of course the Buffy the Vampire Slayer fans which became “Angel” fans, and Now this is the NEW BLUE. (Wall-E – reference). Sorry but I have to be honest, this show was put together well but is so typical and just a remake of every other TV Show it is insane to consider continuing to watch it. Aren’t there any new ideas out there?
Our Rating based on 1-5 Stars: 3 stars
