Arrow: "Honor Thy Father": IGN Review

Though not without its problems, Arrow got off to a promising start with last week's series premiere. I was curious to see if there would be any tangible difference in style or execution between the pilot and the second episode. In terms of both strengths and flaws, this episode was very much in the vein of the first.

This episode saw Ollie settle a bit more into his new role as Green Arrow. he need to right social wrong and cross off the names on his father's list looks to be the driving force of the show for the foreseeable future. I like that the show is reflecting Ollie's socially conscious, left-leaning side, something that tends to creep in and out of the Green Arrow comics at differing points. It helps the show feel a bit more relevant, even if the various evil businessmen Ollie has clashed with so far are no more complex than your average Golden Age Superman villain.

The story is too old to be commented.

There is a video on the site that for some reason my PC wouldn't let me put on here but you should watch. Arrow talk about all the villians being added and which episodes they will be brought in.

its kind of funny how this show is getting bad reviews at every turn, but the smaller sites and the fans are loving it

Isn't that the way it always is? I know that every time I like a show or even a movie...they usually get bad reviews. I'm really liking this show a lot so far. I hope they keep the villians coming and the stories interesting.

I'm going to like it even more when John Barrowman from Torchwood is on it. I think he starts on the pretty soon and he'll be on for several episodes and maybe even as a regular. I'm not sure if he's going to be a good guy or a bad guy yet.

Yeah and notice the walking dead too. Its getting more mainstream this season, and now its getting bad reviews too lol It's mostly people with the power that just want to say the show sucks.
