After Oliver is shot, he turns to a surprising person for help – Felicity. Diggle is stunned when he sees Felicity walk through the front door of the lair dragging a dying Oliver behind her, and the two team up to save Oliver’s life.

  • Verne Gay

    Solid start to what could--and maybe should--be a future CW franchise.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Tom Gliatto

    The CW's best show since Gossip Girl.... it has a forthright narrative seriousness, a respect for the gobbledy-gook that makes up any superhero's backstory--and a game cast performing with the correct degree of seriousness. [19 Nov 2012, p.35]

    People Weekly Full Review
  • Chuck Barney

    Arrow does what a solid pilot should: Suck us in, make us anxious to see what's next and set up several intriguing possibilities.

    San Jose Mercury News/Contra Costa Times Full Review
  • Ken Tucker

    Your interest in Arrow depends on how much you miss the troubled-in-love, conflicted-by-family heroics of Smallville--it mirrors that series' setup.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Mark A. Perigard

    Arrow has so much going for it, it doesn't need to linger on the past.

    Boston Herald Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    Smooth without being slick, textured but not self-indulgent, Arrow reminds us that the best stories we tell are both revelatory and a whole lot of fun to watch.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • David Hiltbrand

    The pilot of Arrow is a darkly gleaming gem. If the show can keep up its cinema-quality action sequences and maintain an air of mystery to Ollie's agenda, this could be a really fun series.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Joanne Ostrow

    What "Nashville" on ABC and Arrow on the CW have in common, is appealing characters in well-plotted stories.

    Denver Post Full Review
  • Lori Rackl

    This slick action-drama is based on the comic book superhero Green Arrow. Prepare to quiver.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Curt Wagner

    Arrow landed in my list of Top 5 pilots of the season, and I hope future episodes are as enthralling and well-made.

    RedEye Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    The action is hot, fast and believable, achieved through quick-cut editing and spot-on direction.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    Arrow is a competently-made superhero drama with an appealing lead performance from Stephen Amell.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    There's nothing particularly new about a superhero show, but Arrow exhibits a stylized ferocity that, in its initial hour at least, makes a positive enough impression.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Matt Roush

    Familiarity points deducted, Arrow is still a very slick piece of work.

    TV Guide Magazine Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    This looks like a pretty tasty fantasy drama.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    Arrow has a rather stylish neo-Goth look, and Stephen Amell (who played a dim-bulb gigolo in Hung) neatly balances his portrayal of Arrow between camp and Saturday-matinee ingenuousness.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Sarah Rodman

    Arrow isn't quite a bullseye on its first shot, but it hits the target.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    Arrow, proves to be both on-brand and entertaining--if you turn off the snark detector and downplay the need for plausibility or logic.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Ed Bark

    Arrow may not be a-point-ment television. But for starters at least, it's a sharper little tale than expected.

    Uncle Barky Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    There is absolutely nothing new about anything seen here and yet Arrow has nice aim.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Granted, it's all standard superhero stuff. But the action scenes are well-handled, the emotions and the characters mostly ring true, and the plot offers enough twists to keep you intrigued.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    Arrow is sincere and energetic but visually undistinguished.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    Arrow turns out to be a lively show, probably better than hard-core "Green Arrow" fans expected. That's a good start.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Cynthia Fuchs

    It's an ingenious first two minutes of a series premiere, actiony and exciting and legible enough.

    PopMatters Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Arrow certainly looks polished (having David Nutter direct a pilot virtually insures that), but there's only so much action an hourlong drama can afford, and the characters necessary to sustain the series are, initially, strictly two-dimensional, even with the island as a go-to flashback.
