There have been some major questions about CW's newest superhero venture Arrow after the let down that was the Smallville finale. The series pilot debuted last night at San Diego Comic Con and fans leaving the premiere told EW that they loved it. “I really liked it; it had really good production values,” said fan Jamie. Gabriel who watched the pilot with Jamie added, “It was really cool; it really kept you into it.” Carrissa also caught the show and said that she doesn't normally watch a lot of TV but she would definitely be tuning in to check Arrow out when it premieres later this Fall on the CW. One fan even went as far as comparing the show to Smallville only "Darker". The only negative about the episdoe came from a fan named Shelby who said it was action packed but felt a bit cheesy at times.
EW also gave a short little review of the show's pilot, saying that the episode plays out a lot like a TV sized version of Batman Begins. They also went out to say that it manages to tell a pretty ambitious story for only having a small screen budget. Compliments were also paid to the CGI work for the show. The humor in was another highlight for screening goers. For a possible date Oliver is told the girl looks like the one from Twilight. "Whats Twilight?" asks Ollie. "You’re so better off not knowing,” says his friend.
Update: Here is a new clip that Spoiler TV posted. Thanks to @Natasha_SHIELD for the embed.
