Synopsis (Courtesy from the CW):

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. SYNOPSIS LINK

Qulture Review:

Over and over, as I watched this pilot, I was echoing American Idol’s Randy Jackson last season when he kept saying,”What kinda’ show IS this?” Oh yes! Arrow makes you go there. True to it’s comic book roots, this character delves into dark, violent places that even the Batman merely hints at. The pilot swiftly reveals bit and pieces of his origin through flashbacks from his five years being trapped on a harsh, deserted island along with his acclimation back to his billionaire lifestyle. There’s hints of certain staple characters; Speedy, Dinah Lance and even (though you have to pause the DVR) of all people, the Terminator. The show features amazing use of his dazzling parkour abilities (which makes much more sense than rappelling) and the possibilities are wide-open for a number of DC guest stars should the need ever arise. Most interesting, is that this Green Arrow is so dark and so violent, it makes it’s network counterpart Nikita, look like an after-school special. By show’s end, I wasn’t even certain who to root for and that included the main character so I’m ALL in! One thing’s absolutely for sure, this ain’t no Smallville!

  Final Verdict: Couch Potato APPROVED! Grab that blanket and pop that popcorn. You’ll be glued!
