POLL: What Did You Think Of CW's ARROW?

POLL: What Did You Think Of CW's ARROW?

Last night we saw the pilot of CW's Arrow, with mixed feelings from several, myself included, it is obvious this will be an controversial series with fans. But what did you think? Did Arrow go in the right direction? Or did it miss the target?

With CBM alone already having three different reviews online (see bottom of page) it makes me wonder how this series will hold up over time. Several controversies have already been brought up about the series such as, unlike Batman Arrow has no problem killing the bad guys, no one displays superpowers in the show weather the character they are based on has them or not, and Oliver's nigh superhuman skills after being on an 'deserted' island for five years are just a few of the criticisms several have been pointing out. How CW will react to these critiques remains to be seen. But with opinions floating still up in the air, this is your chance to tell us what you think of CW's newest superhero series, Arrow.

Pros: Action sequences are well-choreographed, Amell does a good job selling the part, early set-up of suspense is promising, acting in general better than might have been expected (for the CW).

Cons: The voiceover narration is appalling and must go, the dialogue is so-so, and the Laurel Lance character is boring and obvious (the so-so dialogue dips into catastrophic whenever she's on-screen: too early to say if it's Cassidy's fault or if the screenwriter just [frick]ed her over with a thoroughly badly written female lead).

Overall, it's better than I expected and I'll keep watching, but I'm afraid it's one of those geeky shows that--unlike Walking Dead or Game of Thrones--I'd feel uncertain about recommending.

Unfortunately, I had to work so I didn't see it. I don't have DVR anymore either. I'm just going to go by what you guys say about it and maybe rent the first season when it comes out on DVD.

Ugh...there's voice narration? That's going to ruin it for me right there. If a show/movies story is good enough I can somewhat overlook that.

I liked it, but didn't expect sexual content/references in a TV-PG LV show.
