In the penultimate episode of Season 4 a map of the United States shows Starling/Star City in roughly the same location as Chicago. This is a very different location from the DC comics where Star City is often shown as roughly analogous to Seattle See more »
In the promotional picture for the series it shows a shirtless Oliver. The scars from his time on the island are visible, but there is no tattoo. During the series Oliver has a tattoo on his chest, a tattoo that plays an important role in at least one episode (1x03 "Lone Gunmen") and has been visible in every other episode. See more »
So disappointed and I used to love this show. My husband and I would anxiously await the new episode each week. Now, he is on his phone and I am on my kindle. The sexual tension between Oliver and Felicity was great. The series was at it's best when it was just Oliver, Diggle and Felicity on the team. Ever since the first time the Arrow joined with the Flash, the series has taken a nosedive. The writing has become eye rolling dumb and the lines just plain cheesy. The Arrow wears a costume to hide his identity, yet everyone and their brother now know his secret. Plus, all of his remaining friends and family think they are crime fighters now too. The acting is well done given the script that the actors have to work with. Please go back to the old formula and make this show great again.
