As much as my brothers had taught me about superheros through the years, I had never really heard of Green Arrow. In fact, I first became familiar with him through playing Injustice: Gods Among Us with my husband. I wasn't actually a big fan of him because my husband would constantly hit my player with arrows and I wasn't able to do a darned thing. Of course, I am the worst video gamer in the history of the world, so that probably had more to do with it than Green Arrow did.
One day, though, I was scrolling through Netflix trying to find something to watch and saw Arrow. I thought maybe it was about the Green Arrow, so I checked it out and was hooked from episode one. I watched the first two seasons very quickly, and then was pleased to find I was just in time to watch the third season as the new episodes were released. Never have I ever been so glad to stumble upon something on Netflix.
Part of what makes this show so great is the cast, and since this post could have been called "A is for Amell", I'll let you know why Stephen Amell is now my favorite actor. Sure, he's a great actor and I think he's perfect as Arrow, but I find that I have a lot of respect for him as a man, too. I follow him on Facebook, and he very frequently posts about his daughter. I absolutely love when people take parenting seriously, and he does. I also love how he loves to support worthy causes. It's great to see celebrities use their fame in such great ways. Big points to him for that!
Anywho, there is a lot I could say about this show, but since I'll probably ramble through tweets while watching tonight, I'll hush for now.
