Watch Me: Arrow

Come for the eye candy, stay because the show doesn’t suck.

I’ve been watching a lot of TV shows since school let out and one that I’ve been particularly fond of is Arrow. Basically, it’s the story of Oliver Queen (a.k.a. really good looking chap in the above photo) and his exploits after returning from being a castaway and becoming a bow and arrow toting vigilante.

At first, I didn’t want to watch it since the 1st season wasn’t even done yet and I’ve never been a big on superheroes on TV (Smallville never was my thing), but once you get passed the seemingly uninteresting bits and Oliver’s laughable inner monologues (I always laugh and skip through the show’s intro because of it) It’s a really good show with a lot of action and “holy crap that was awesome!” moments. Stephen Amell does a good job portraying both super serious post-island Green Arrow and pre-island slightly douche-y spoiled brat Oliver Queen from the flashbacks and the rest of the cast is great too.
