Arrow: The Complete First Season Blu-ray Review
3 October 2013
Conclusion: Arrow might just be onto something. Shaky for the better part of ten episodes, the first season soon gains its footing, levels out its aim and ambition, and begins hitting closer and closer to the bullseye. There are still some big problems that need addressed if the series is ever going to live up to its potential, but Arrow is well on its way come season's end.
Summary: Next season Black Canary and The Flash will be showing up. The Flash is looking to get his own series, for the second time. I’m really looking forward to that, although it might be this time next year before I see it all for myself. You see, I deliberately stayed away from the broadcasts. I knew the chances were good I would get to review this on Blu-ray. It makes such a difference when you can watch this kind of season in short order.
Conclusion: Out of the starting gate, establishes itself as a polished replica of the vigilante superhero concept, focused on the dedication that Oliver Queen -- a billionaire child turned combat archer after a five-year stretch on an island -- puts towards righting his corporate father's wrongs in Starling City.
Conclusion: Comic book fans are likely going to be drawn to 'Arrow' regardless its level of quality. Thankfully, it manages to be an interesting series that utilizes a great deal of the DC Comics universe, in fun and exciting ways that help to highlight the rise of Oliver Queen from simple vigilante to the hero he was destined to become. It's not a perfect series, however.
