My overall opinion: So. Y’all. I’ve got a new favorite show to watch. And it’s this one. Wow is it good! I don’t even know where to start! Oliver Queen is absolutely amazing. Most episodes include a little of his present day story (in which he’s killing bad guys in his hometown of Starling City) and a little of his back story (he was stranded on an island for five years). It ties them together in a fascinating way the whole way through. His sister Thea is a neat character. His former girlfriend, Laurel, is also an interesting girl. We meet a variety of other people through the episodes as well, good and bad. John Diggle is Oliver’s body-guard turned friend, a delightful man – he’s awesome. And then there’s Felicity Smoak. She’s my hands-down favorite character. Before I started this show, I had a couple of friends tell me that I was rather similar to her. Then I started the show and understood what they meant. We aren’t carbon copies of each other, by any means (she’s so cool…I couldn’t be quite that cool) – but we talk alike. And we’re both blonde. So she’s really super amazing and I love her. All in all? There are occasionally a few objectionable things in this show, but for the most part, I highly recommend it. I’ve already gotten into Season 2 and it’s also amazing with some unexpected twists and turns. Watch this, then watch that, then tell me what you think! :)

Cool, someone else likes it too!
I really liked it (apart from the 'bad' parts) especially all the action in it, but Season 2 to got very unrealistic.

Felicity Smoak is my favourite character as well. She's so funny,and I've always loved a computer whiz.
