The CW is returning to the superhero genre with a bang. Arrow is easily one of my most anticipated new shows and I cannot wait for its premiere. Merging the grit of Nolan’s Batman series with the long arc story telling of Smallville, Arrow could be the best new show the CW has produced in a long time.

From what I can tell of the promos, I’m expecting that we’re in for something special and Stephen Amell seems absolutely perfect as the Green Arrow, more so then Justin Hartley (though, I do believe he did a good job during his run on Smallville). For all the geeks out there, I know this is going to be must see TV. I can just feel it.

Official Episode Description, “Pilot”: Oliver is rescued and creates the persona of Arrow, an expert archer determined to fight evil in his beloved city in the opener of a series about billionaire playboy Oliver Queen, who becomes a vigilante after being shipwrecked for five years.

Arrow premieres on the CW at 8pm tonight.
