'Arrow' On The CW Is Shaping Up Rather Nicely....


So a few months back the CW announced that it would stay in the superhero business after the wrapping up of Smallville by starting up 'Arrow', an origin story about DC's favorite archer Green Arrow. G.A. is the kind of superhero that a TV show can get right... he doesn't have super powers like Superman or Green Lantern, he is more of a practical super hero like Batman. They don't have to convince us with special effects shots of him flying or using super strength. Just some good old fashion action, which is getting done better on TV then EVER BEFORE (see Spartacus, Game of Thrones, Human Target, Doctor Who, etc). But when the first trailer was released last week, I wasn't sure if they could get it right. I knew it was just the first teaser trailer, but it looked very basic. But over the weekend I found a second teaser, and despite the fact that it is 10 seconds shorter than the original it shows way more "Arrow" type footage. After viewing both, I think this show is going to be A-OK. I'll be watching this fall on Wed. nights, that's for sure. Watch both of these clips after the jump...



Thanks to Joe Fletch for sending me the first video...
