Check your aim, draw back your bow and let the arrow fly…….I’m sorry I just made that up since I felt I needed something but tonight is the night that the second season of the CW Networks own series “Arrow” begins. The show follows the adventures of Oliver Queen, who comic book fans know better as The Green Arrow but for this show he is simply called “Arrow”. Check out the cool poster for S2.
Though I have always enjoyed the adventures of the Emerald Archer and read quite a few of the comic book titles over the years I have still been very remiss in catching the show but I did want to broadcast that it starts this evening for you diehards that want to program the DVR or rearrange plans so they are home to watch it. I’ve programmed it and even added S1 to my Netflix queue so I can catch up with the rest of you. What are your thoughts about the show?
Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen/Arrow

Colin Donnell portrays Tommy Merlyn

Links to the first season on DVD and Blu-ray are embedded below as are a couple of worthwhile trade paperbacks featuring the character. The “Arrow” one expands upon the show’s mythos much like their “Smallville” print series does.
