Posted on at

I’ve been watching TV series this past few weeks and I thought of sharing my TV series reviews aside from doing movie assessments.  I hope this still fall into the category being explained by Micky-The-Slanted-Salerno so I could get extra buzz scores. 

Today I decided to share about my personal views after watching Arrow Season 1, I really love this series and I would want to watch it over and over again, I can say I am a big fan of Arrow although I also love The Flash and Supergirl, which will be my topic in my next TV series reviews.

He was later discovered alive in a remote Pacific island. After that, he was brought home and welcomed by his mother, Moira, his younger sister, Thea and his stepfather, Walter.

While trying to catch up with his family and friends, at night Oliver becomes the vigilante who hunts the people who are in his dad’s notebook, the first guy to go down is a despicable real estate mogul who has swindled millions of money from innocent people, these kind of cheaters are poisoning their city and he wants to make revenge although this activity was being kept from his loved ones, I mean he made it as his secret.

However, Oliver’s family and friends noticed that he changed although he really did because of what he experienced while being stranded in a deserted island. There were many horrible and unexpected things that happened to him in that island, which in turn made him a more fortified fighter.
