Green Arrow Being Made…By The CW

Yea it was pretty exciting news until I saw it was going to be made by the CW…so therefore it was a TV show…and then I read the synopsis…and then I vomited in my mouth a little. So besides starting my morning off having to rid my taste buds of this mornings semi-digested potatoes and coffee (must be a daily taste for the Irish) I must say this is going to be almost as fun as watching The Cape implode. Here’s the synopsis which I highly recommend to all those with bulimia who just ate.

After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine.

    I loved seeing Green Arrow as a part of the Smallville cast the many seasons it ran, but this looks like they are not using the same character or bio even. Still gonna give it a shot but guess I will have to stick with the Smallville Season 11 comic series to see the Ollie I like. And Starling City, really? Bleh
