Green Arrow on the CW and streaming on Netflix.

It's pretty damned good for what it is.

They've tweaked the origin and a few characters but ti's well worth the watch. The ongoing origin story is what makes it great.

I watched it for a while because I did like the part focused on his origin, but the rest was bad enough that I lost interest.

It seemed like it was going somewhere at first, but it didn't get there before I stopped watching.

It was so bad I couldn't get through half the first episode I tried watching.

Wipe off the lipstick motherfucker I'm going in dry.

And I like it because it's fucking light viewing and has a lot of the characters I grew up reading about.

Funny thing is some guys were bagging on @fit on facebook and I chimed in, then I realized the fattest guy commenting(me) was the only former @fitter.

i would stick it in arrow's sister, she would fit in well on the Pixie thread. i would also put it in the blonde IT girl's large jewess arse.

too many shirtless men, not enough shirtless women. (applies to CF too)

All the women on the show are pretty bangable. It's just a matter of selecting a batting order. I'd start with Ollie's mom but that's just cause I'm an old bastard. I'd save Felicity for last.

Kind of a weird amalgam of Green Arrow, General Hospital, Batman, and Lost (mostly the last three). Not the Green Arrow I hoped for, but reasonably dark. Still, as EZ said, there's just enough good stuff to make it enjoyable for comic book fans. Captain Jack is much better with limey direction and dialogue tho.
