I LOVE this show and read the character biography on Wikipedia. But unlike the rest of fandom I hate Laurel and hope Carly, Diggle's S-I-N, become's of hero's love interest. I also saw the huntress has been cast so she and Laurel are not the same person, THANK GOODNESS! :lol: I also love it that the hero has his mother to answer too. :D Apparently the Arrow is fashioned after The Dark Knight which I do not mind at all. Have no idea who this John Barrowman person is...

Count me in as another who has been following Arrow since it's first episode and try to get my viewing times straight cause it's on Wednesday and so is Survivor.

Methinks mommy dearest is not one to be trifled with. That being said, she should probably be on her son's "hit" list cause it sure seems to me that she had something to do with the boat going down that drowned her first husband.

I've watched every episode. I'm a comic/superhero fan. It's very well written so far.

Looking forward to seeing The Huntress as a guest star. (The Huntress was on "Birds of Prey" a few years ago on The WB)

I fear that you are right about mommy which is too bad. I like very the idea of a superhero who still has to answer to his mother. LOL now can we kill off Laurel already? :D

Awwwww, let's keep Laurel around for a while and watch Superhero squirm some more while he tries to hide how much he still very much cares about her AND concealing who he is at night time.

Baby sis -- what a pain she is yet has some pretty good insticts/insights. Let's keep her.

Feeling sorry for newest hubby, thinking he's going to meet up with some bad, courtesy of his wife. After all, getting rid of husband #2 should be easier to manage now that she's had some practice aka bumping off hubby #1.

But I do love everybody else on the show. As long as we agree Laurel has to go sooner or later! :P

I too am loving this show. I agree Laurel isn't the greatest but she is just a typical swooning one-dimensional character. I think it would be fun to have sis become aware of what her brother is doing and join in to help him. Looking forward to finding out more about the island and what happened there.

I too would love to hear more about the island. Little sis is very intriguing character.

Since I am not a reality show fan this is pretty much it for TV viewing on Wednesdays. Not sure I would have tuned in otherwise but I am enjoying it. Obviously it is a big stretch of the imagination but I am will to suspend disbelief to be entertained. Now that is it revealed Mom has secretly recovered the shipwreck I think the chances are slight she was behind any wrongdoing. (One would prefer the evidence to be lost at sea surely.)

Diggle is great - love that his first reaction was "forget it you insane criminal". Love that when he finally agrees to take the job he makes it clear he is no sidekick and still doesn't completely approve but sees a lack of choice.

I really am kind of on the fence about Laurel but think we should give them some time to develop her character better. She is a strong woman who is not foolish, but seems to be unable to make up her mind if she approves, disapproves, or is just conflicted about Arrow's goals and methods. I really think they should play it more as conflicted and stop having her swing completely to and fro from yea to nay and back again.

Island scenes - well hard to watch the lessons but they provide good background to explain need for ruthless behaviour.

Certainly this show is much better realized than that failed show with David Lyons - what was that mess called again? Oh yeah - The Cape.

I love Fake Batman too! Somehow I've managed to get my husband to watch it with me. Each week he groans about how bad it is, but he has been sucked in by the conspiracy plot, and now has to watch to see how it all turns out ;)

Here in Canada, I watched it on Tuesday. Not sure why it was being televised on a Tuesday night, but worked well for me since I had a meeting Wed nite.
