I was hyped up when I heard about the show for the first time. Being a long standing Hawkeye (Marvel) fan and Green Arrow (DC) fan, this show was something I had long waited for. Moving along, however, this show has been one of the most tantalizing shows on television for me, and as someone who rarely ever sits down to watch a movie much less a television show, the fact that this shoe has had me glued to the television every Wednesday since it started is amazing. Stephen Amell does a phenominal job at portray Oliver Queen in a real modern world scenario. The show puts a real world spin on the comic universe and brings it to the forefront of what the complications of being a hero in the modern world WOULD be like. The fact that the show incorporates action, drama, comedy, and adventure all into 1 hour a week, and keeps viewers coming back to see what's next is, in my personal opinion, a very successful television show. I can foresee this show running for quite some time, and being the one thing DC has put out, that will hold some weight against Marvel. I look forward to the rest of Season 3 and the upcoming episode where Atom and Arrow face off. Love the show.

Liked the show a lot, and watched all five seasons on Netflix. Also like the flashbacks and the action scenes are good. However, sometimes to much time is spent in talking about drama, and Prometheus, should've had a better motivation to destroy Oliver. However, the show is good and my favorite character was Slade Wilson, or Death stroke played by Manu. Can't wait to see how season 6 will unfold, especially since all the flashbacks are done.
Arrow will be missed by all, but I guess like all good things must come to and end. Maybe one more time as the Specter. Gustin's on about his way out, if he dose it would open up many things. The Wonder Twins, and don't forget about the monkey at the end of Crisis on Infinite Earths , that in its self is an Easter egg....
