Ok, we know you’re shocked that we’re recommending you watch The CW’s new series Arrow, a series based on a comic book story, which premieres tonight.
It’s the story of millionaire heir Oliver Queen, who everyone thought perished in a violent shipwreck. In reality, Oliver was living it up (not really) on a deserted island for five years. That kind of solitude can change a man, and Oliver has changed — into his alter crime-fighting persona. Here are three reason you should tune in tonight!
1. It’s a thriller … and a family show! “One-third of the show is all about the family dynamics in his life,” executive producer Andrew Kreisberg shared with TV DivaGal during The CW’s Summer TV panel in Los Angeles. And who doesn’t love a good TV family drama?
2. It’s got a girl who can kick butt! Dinah “Laurel” Lance (played by Katie Cassidy) is a tough attorney who isn’t afraid to battle it out in the courtroom. Of course, we’re dying to see how she deals with Oliver, he ex-boyfriend, returning to civilization a different man. We’re certain she’ll notice one thing…
3. Stephen Amell’s abs. Yes, we know we mentioned them before, but they are definitely worth bringing up again (and we’ve added the sweet pic above!).
Bonus: Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg, mentioned above, went to college with TV DivaGal! Congrats Andrew!
Arrow premieres Wednesday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m on The CW.
