Storyline

Oliver Queen and his father are lost at sea when their luxury yacht sinks, apparently in a storm. His father dies, but Oliver survives for five years on an uncharted island and eventually returns home. But he wasn't alone on the island where he learned not only how to fight and survive but also of his father's corruption and unscrupulous business dealings. He returns to civilization a changed man, determined to put things right. He disguises himself with the hood of one of his mysterious island mentors, arms himself with a bow and sets about hunting down the men and women who have corrupted his city. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Willa Holland was publicly upset this series' version of the Suicide Squad was "killed off" in favor of Suicide Squad (2016). According to her, the showrunners "had to axe all of the characters before we even got to show them, which was very annoying". See more »

Goofs

In the promotional picture for the series it shows a shirtless Oliver. The scars from his time on the island are visible, but there is no tattoo. During the series Oliver has a tattoo on his chest, a tattoo that plays an important role in at least one episode (1x03 "Lone Gunmen") and has been visible in every other episode. See more »

Quotes

Oliver Queen: My name is Oliver Queen. For five years I was stranded on an island with only one goal: survive. Now I will fulfill my father's dying wish - to use the list of names he left me and bring down those who are poisoning my city. To do this, I must become someone else. I must become something else.

Good until it isnt
11 December 2019 | by oliverarnellSee all my reviews

Like many others here. I thoroughly enjoyed season 1, 2 and 3 was alright. 4 was where it really went down hill with poor plot and acting which overall lost the more gritty feel to arrow. Season 5 however really brought it back for me with an amazing villain and interesting plotline. Despite this I dropped out midway season 6 as again the story became sloppy, repetitive and uninteresting which is a real shame for a show that really does have it's high points. Highly recommend just watching through to the end of season 5 and leaving it there. Probably just watch a season recap or something on season 4 as its really not worth the watch.
