I always thought The Question's nemesis should have been The Answer.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

The Answer is a Marvel Comics villain, and the Question is a DC comics Superhero.

It's very rare, conflicted and expensive for the two of them to cross paths.

I'm glad that Arrow is embracing it's comic book roots right from the start unlike Smallville which took years getting there.

My wife and I decided to give it a try last night not expecting much and we both really enjoyed it. It was much darker than we thought it would be but it was a refreshing change of pace from Smallville.

One thing we were wondering is if Diggle will become his "sidekick", what with the military background and all.
While that is a cool idea, for people who know the story it's pretty clear that if he does get a sidekick, it's going to be Thea.

And it turns out my theory about John Barrowman being Deathstroke was wrong.
Well, sidekick may not have been the best choice of words. I see him becoming more of a Lucius Fox/Alfred type.

Black Butler?

I used to love it on Soap whenever the doorbell would ring and everyone would look at Benson, and Benson would look back at them like he didn't know why they were looking at him, and then he'd say "Do you want me to get that?"

EVEREYDAMNTIME!

Looks like they've put a lot of work into it. Let's hope the writers will do just as good of a job.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

What did you think of Deathstroke on smallville?

Seriously.

Smallville has set the bar so low.

The only thing that could cause this show to fail is if 90 percent of it's audience is too young to remember Smallville.

Smallville? The teen show that just happened to use the occasional comic character to justify the name?

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

Compared to Arrow, the teen show so afraid of comics that it only used half it's name?

I laughed when I saw that some of his feathers in his arrows were yellow.

Not only is he not called Green Arrow, but he's not using Green Arrows.

Let's see where they'll take the show.
After the Green Lantern clusterfuck I'd also try my hardest to distance my show from that train wreck.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

I just assumed the name of the show was a (lame) stylistic choice, much like Smallville and their insistence on using one-word titles for every episode.

For some reason, someone somewhere thinks that's "cool."

I didn't even think about the GL movie, I just thought that the idea was to avoid confusion with GA from Smallville.

Nah, it's the Green Something. After Green Hornet and Green Lantern you can't call a show Green Arrow without confusing big parts of the audience, the titles are too similar.
