Um, I hope the show's a bit more fun than the preview lets on. I don't have much interest in seeing a dour, overly serious TV series... about a guy with a bow and arrow.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

Finally saw that teaser trailer. Work filter issues earlier.

It felt more like a sample than a tease. When I'm teased, I want more right away.
When I get a sample often times I try something else and forget the sample.
This felt like a sample as of now imo.

So far Arrow looks good, want to see more before getting too excited.

New full trailer. Looks really good to me. I'm getting a bit of a Nolan Batman vibe from it, but at this point that isn't totally unexpected.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

I personally would've liked to have seen them connect this series to Smallville and use Justin Hartley in the role of Oliver Queen, but that trailer and the teaser preview have piqued my interest enough to get me to check out at least a few episodes.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

Yeah, you'd think they'd go with an already established, and I believe quite popular version of the character instead of starting from scratch.

Has the Batman Begins vibe. I like what I am seeing so far.

If they made this a Smallville spinoff they'd be burdened with 10 seasons of continuity and since none of these people were involved with Smallville that would be a daunting task. The time do do a Smallville Green Arrow spinoff was 3 - 4 years ago.

Agreed, doing a Smallville spin-off at this point would be madness. And that trailer, oddly, doesn't totally suck. The lead looks a lot gruffer and bad-assier than Justin whoseywhatsits, too.

Justin Hartley felt like a male model dressing up like a vigilante for Halloween. This guys seems like he could have really survived all that time alone on the island. Giving him the strength and will to fight crime with a bow and arrows!

^ The Smallville people were probably focused on casting someone who wouldn't out-macho Welling.

A bit too much Dark Knight, but apart from that it's quite interesting.
