(is there an Arrow topic already?)

Well I'm loving this show, binge watched the first season in like two days. it's a bit more batman than green arrow..think bob kane batman who kills the swarthy working class thugs and  takes the crime boss to jail. the first few episodes of arrow they straight up write Oliver Queen as a serial killer. his big shtick is breaking into evil rich peoples' bases, shooting all the henchmen in the chest and or head, then scaring the rich people and taking them to jail. it's kind of hilarious in a messed up way. the show gets a lot better by the end of the first season. made me realize this marvel agents of shield crap is crap.

So, anyone checked out season 3 yet? I still haven't, saving it up for a rainy day marathon [it's one of my many guilty pleasures, a bit of fun fluff that doesn't take itself too seriously].

I prefer the old TV costume, myself, but I don't hate the new one.

so far it doesn't look like it's going to be as great as season 2 was, but it's still pretty solid.

I have watched none of Flash or Arrow.
But i have just downloaded the crossover episodes for my Xmas watching pleasure.
Which one comes first?

First The Flash, then Arrow. Though they're more-or-less both standalone episodes, really.

Hey there!

I'm currently working through the first season, 12 episodes in and there's a lot more bad than good.  It's alright background noise whilst eating or browsing the internets so I'll see out the season at least.  Like the dumb stories Oliver keeps spinning to the computer lass, obviously inspired by similar scenes from the Nolan Batman movies but still pretty funny.  

Given the world we live in, I'm sure someone has done a breakdown of Arrow's time spent in and out of shirts, feels like at least 60:40 out - tbh, if I was built like that I'd be skewing more towards 100:0!

First season gets better at the end, second season is very good, third season is skippable.
