Him jumping out to the window at the end looked terrible. Surprised they couldn't have made that one look better.

Loved this way more than Smallville. This isn't Breaking Bad or The Wire - but it's actually my favorite fall pilot of the year. Like how Speedy, Black Canary, Merlin and everyone else are already being introduced.

Loved it. It had a few weak things, the voice overs mainly, but as a whole it showed a lot of promise.

I was surprised at all the killing as well.

Not sure if you watch Vampire Diaries, but if you do, you really shouldn't be surprised. That show gets dark and violent frequently.

A lot of people are speculating that Barrowman is playing Bruce Wayne.

Second episode was pretty solid even though it didn't move things forward very much.

Enjoying this pilot quite a bit. I think it could get solid ratings, and definitely pull in a male audience, which the CW desperately needs if they ever want US television to become a 'Big 5' system. I'm curious as to the budget, though, that boat flashback scene was surprisingly well executed, and looked very not cheap.

I'm not an avid comic book reader, did this stray far/not so far? Is it possible this could be one of the better comic adaptations in recent memory, or is there no chance? That kind of stuff really interests me.

Anyways, really liking the characters/relationships that have already started blooming, and it's an interesting enough concept on its own; they keep this quality up, and the CW might have another hit on their hands. Hopefully they do, I want that network to explode; they have their fair share of shows worth watching that nobody does solely because of the network they're on.

They've changed some stuff around like Ollie's mother not dying along with his father.

Looks like the ratings for the second episode were pretty solid again. Hope it continues to do well.

Love hearing that, I hope this sticks around. A serialized superhero show that doesn't suck would be great.

Also, the seed they planted with Speedy (real name?) doing drugs was good. Could turn into something that fractures the brother/sister bond somewhere down the line.

Ah! My first major complaint! I love getting this. Katie Cassidy needs to tone down the goddamn melodrama. You're not on Gossip Girl anymore, lady.

If she wasn't so hot, I might complain about that more.

Oh man, I thought both episodes were just dreadful. I suppose I'll continue to give it a shot since it's easy to watch on Hulu, but some moments just make me gag.

Is he going to be dodging bullet storms every episode?

I thought it was common knowledge that the mere sight of a superhero reduces henchmen accuracy to nothing?

Pretty solid so far. Only gripe really is the villains have been pretty wooden so far. Amell is really doing good carrying this.
