Picking up where season 1 left off with Starling City recovering from attacks by Malcom Merln who is now a wanted man and Oliver Queen finding himself the target of Slade Wilson who was on the island with him and vowing not to kill. This season expands and hints at a wider DC universe though Deathstroke is more of an anti hero in the comics than all out bad guy here and appearances from Black Canary and Barry Allen aka The Flash who will be getting his own spin off series and The Suicide Squad from DC comics and fun voice only cameo from Batman villain Harley Quinn who sounds uncannily like her 90's Batman animated series version and hints at more DC characters to come. Excellent entertainment with a great cast even if the finale does feel like The Dark Knight Rises made for tv.

I love this series, if anything it is better than the first.

The original part of the story which takes place on the island has been expanded which in some parts is a little implausible but still makes for great viewing, due partly to the presence of Manu Bennett as Slade Wilson.

Stephen Amell is exactly right for the lead role of Oliver Queen (it is worthwhile watching the bonus features with Season 1 to see him in training for his stunts) with Paul Blackthorne providing great support as his would-be nemesis, Detective Quentin Lance. But hamming it up superbly is John Barrowman who is a real scene-stealer as Malcolm Merlyn, the arch-baddie.

My only worry is that it is going to be quite a long wait for Season Three!

Great viewing.

Season 2 really took off with more twists and turns than a corkscrew, really thrilling storylines, sub plots, homages to the DC comic heroes and anti-heroes, and a thoroughly entertaining show from start to finish. The two veins of the series continue with the Arrow's fight against criminals in Starling city, and Oliver Queen's continued transformation on the island, both stories equally exciting, and leaving me bereft until season 3 is out. We also continue with family secrets, intrigue, betrayal, love gained and lost, revenge, and moral dilemmas surrounding the Queen family.
We are introduced to more DC comic heroes and heroines, anti heroes and anti heroines, and I look forward to their development in the show. We see more acting favourites join the episodes, and other characters being fleshed out, my particular favourite is Emily Bett-Rickards character Felicity Smoak who gives the series some comic relief. Great entertainment, great action, Stephen Amell continues to shine in the lead role, and he is supported well, I enjoyed Manu Bennett's relentlessly vengeful baddie Deathstroke, and I was delighted to see John Barrowman return as Malcolm Merlyn, as he is a strong acting asset to hang onto in my opinion! Yes everyone is beautiful and handsome to look at, but hey, this is pure fantasy and escapism given a gritty, pounding ride that is satisfyingly refreshing to watch. Just let go and enjoy, don't think too deeply, it ain't that kind of show!

I made the mistake of getting the region 1 copy which does play on uk DVD players. The reason it was a mistake is the picture quality is shockingly bad! For the sake of a extra fiver to get the uk version it is so worth it! I found the picture to be really blurry and fuzzy. I never write reviews but yes arrow is amazing! One of the best tv shows for a while! Makes shows like smallville seem silly. Just wanted to let everyone be aware that some people are selling region 1 copies as uk versions for slightly cheaper! Want my advice pay the extra couple of quid and get it from supermarket! I managed to get a refund back and went straight to tesco and yes the picture is amazing! Enjoy arrow bring on season 3 and the flash!

Season 2 of Arrow is pretty much more of the same, following on from a good solid first season. I felt there was a slight treading of water in the first couple of episodes but it soon gets going and before you know it, characters and plot lines are being thrown at the screen like they're going out of fashion.

You don't have to be a big comic book reader or fan of the DC Universe to enjoy the show but it does add to the fun, spotting various major and minor characters popping up and working out where/how they fit into the puzzle. There are returnees from the previous year - Deadshot, Huntress, Count Vertigo etc as well as many new additions. I won't list them all, I reckon it's more enjoyable to find them as you go but the major introduction is of course a young Barry Allen for a couple of episodes - prepping a certain scarlet speedster for his own forthcoming series. A rather different Amanda Waller joins the party as well and where Amanda goes, a certain squad must follow.

Other notable developments include court cases, mad scientists, super villains, super soldiers and more. There's a fair amount of action as you'd expect, particularly when things get amped up for the final story arch in the closing episodes. The dual timelines of Oliver's time on the island and present day happenings in Starling City continue. The tone is still pretty dark but there's always the likes of Felicity to bring a few chuckles to lighten the mood as required.

It's not perfect - there's a slight soap opera feel to some family developments and often proceedings are interrupted as one character or another steps in to make a motivational speech. Also, Oliver really sucks at keeping his "secret" identity a secret. But I'm probably just being picky, it's still more than worth the journey, ticking most of the right boxes. Roll on Season 3 (and The Flash).
