Michael D Hamersky On Comics Presents His Take On...
The WB TV Show... So Far!


TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3799 -    Okay... First of all, I have to say that I saw the preview show at the 2012 San Diego Comic Con International, AND received one of the promotional comic books as shown at the top of this blog post. (See this link for my 2012 SDCC photos of the panel, starting with pic #26.)

Not that I'm that crazy over Arrow (Green Arrow), as it is a DC Comics character.

Yes, I did enjoy the Green Lantern / Green Arrow series back in the1970s with Neal Adams & Denny O'Neill, but I didn't read all of them.  That series ran in Green Lantern #76 (April of 1970) through #122 (November of 1979), which was quite a while.

So technically, I'm not an old time fan of Green Arrow.

However, I was pleasantly surprised at how good the preview show was at the Comic-Con.  And the promo comic book was pretty good too, although I sold my copy before the Summer was over.

So... I was there when the TV show premiered on the WB on October 10th of 2012.  Tina and I have viewed all of the episodes since then, all fiveteen of them. 

I for one am quite interested in this show, and am glad to hear that it has been renewed!

The show is actually aimed for persons younger than myself, like the 'Smallville' series was.  I just couldn't get into the 'Smallville' series, which ran for ten seasons. I tried a few times, but gave up.

However, this Arrow TV show, doesn't have all of the continuity built into it.  I'm finding that each episode is pretty well grounded, with just some annoyance of the previous five years on the island in flashbacks.

The cast is pretty good, and I find myself liking Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen (Arrow). 

The supporting cast is pretty darn good, with David Ramsey as John Diggle.  David has an extensive acting background, which I wasn't aware of. David brings an extra sense of reality to the show.

Katie Cassidy plays Dinah Laurel Lance in the series.  I just found out resarching for this blog post that she is daughter of David Cassidy, a singer I liked on the TV Show, The Partridge Family!  Katie does a fine job as well, but seems to have less air time in the current episodes.

Susanna Thompson plays Oliver's mother, Moira Queen.  I'm intrigued by her role, and she is getting more airtime in the latest episodes.

I've got to say that with only fiveteen episodes aired so far... That I'm hooked!

For you to catch up on this TV series, I'd recommend checking out the Wikipedia entry for 'Arrow'.

I would give this season a Very Fine / Near Mint (VF/NM) 9.0 comic book grade.  I'm looking forward to the final six episodes in this first season
