Quote:
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine.

I'm a pretty big Green Arrow fan and always enjoyed Ollie on Smallville.

The new series will be airing on Wednesdays this fall on the CW.

First look at the cast and some footage.

This and Cult will probably be the two best new CW shows, but I'll check all of them out. Love Katie Cassidy, though, glad she's found a big role.

Trailer looks interesting, apparently in the long trailer there is a glimpse of a mask of a certain DC villain. I won't say who, but if you are really interested head over to IGN.

I like that this has a darker feel to its origins than Smallville did. I enjoyed Smallville enough, but a lot of episodes felt like they just didn't need to be there at all.

I just want this to be less story-of-the-week than Smallville was.

I feel like these kinds of shows are always just soap operas with some action thrown in. I want some full-fledged kick-ass superhero madness TV.

Yeah, I ended up wikipedia-ing synopsis' to find out when I could skip that on Smallville. Hoping that he gets to business fairly quickly. Or, it would be cool if we start at the trailer, then have flashbacks to the island events.

Yeah, I'm excited for this, but I am so over procedurals. Need that season arc. Hopefully it has one.

No idea why CW won't put these online in HD.
