After being marooned for five years on a remote island, billionaire Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) returns home with a mysterious agenda and a lethal set of new skills that he uses in a war on crime in this hard-hitting action series. Reinventing the DC Comics character for a modern-day audience, the Arrow is not a superhero … but a hero – every bit as dangerous as the criminals he’s hunting. A dark and dangerous crime procedural with edge, intrigue and action, Oliver’s story is told from three perspectives: the Queen family, Oliver’s harrowing ordeal on the island and the Arrow’s adventures in Starling City. Showing all facets of the mysterious loner, this realistic drama follows the charismatic but shallow Oliver that disappeared, the hardened Oliver that returned and the Oliver that has been forged into the weapon against injustice known as … the Arrow.

I have been waiting for ages for this to come to iTunes in the UK.
Love this show, glad it has finally been released.
Another missed opportunity
What a waste of a concept. Terrible (and I mean god awful) actors! Casting based on looks is pathetic. To be fair they are given some of the most stilted, incomprehensible dialogue so maybe not entirely their fault. I was so excited for this comic book to be made into a regular series instead of a movie every two years. Recast and try again.
Everything wrong with gritty reinterpretations in five episodes
This is the story of a man who got shipwrecked on an island for 5 years and therefore decided to hunt down and terrorise a list of people his father vaguely suggested might not be the nicest people. And he was on the island because his mother sabotaged their yacht to kill his father, and she also wants him dead for no apparent reason.
Within days of returning home, Oliver Queen becomes a fully-equipped vigilante with all sorts of weapons that he had no possible way of obtaining alone, which he uses to kill countless henchmen in cold blood, threaten and extort people he doesn't understand and just generally cause pain and devastation in the world's most poorly lit docklands.
He claims he's doing good, especially when he targets another vigilante who kills his own targets. But Oliver is also a killer, so there is no moral high ground and this is basically just a turf war.
And he's incapable of keeping his escapades a secret; He's caught on CCTV placing his gear and recovering it. But the police let him off because the investigator had a personal grudge and no one else was available apparently, meaning that the only reason there are more than five episodes is that the police in this city are utterly incompetent.
Arrow is visually dour, morally repugnent, needlessly convoluted and full of plot holes.
