    You know, I was going to drop Arrow from my program line-up next year, but with the announcement of Brandon Routh recurring on the series as The Atom, I will continue to watch at least part of next season to see if his presence makes the show any more appealing to me..

    Oh Brandon Routh...I've just gotta give props to the Arrow team. They're just doing what they want to do and creating a quality show. It's nothing at all like Smallville.

    My only two nitpicks would be to lighten the show, storywise, a bit...and add one more light to each scene. I don't know if it's the Hulu streaming, but the show is extremely hard to see at times.

    The lighting is dark on original broadcast as well.

    I'm hoping that the Atom and any crossovers with The Flash will lighten up the storyline. The crossover promo for The Flash seemed quite a lot lighter in tone than Arrow.

    Thanks Neil. That makes me feel better...and I need to adjust my viewing. I shouldn't watch the show in daylight because of the glare (on the TV anyway).

    The silver lining with that news is that it leaves the DC television universe open to its own take on Wonder Woman. The core idea of the "Amazon" pilot, with a young Diana sent by Themyscira to assimilate into contemporary society and report back, would probably be more interesting than whatever they ultimately do with Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman.

    I agree with you. Wasted opportunity.

    Here is a link to a version of the Arrow 2014 SDCC Panel - I just started watching it and just at the 2:17 minute mark they do mention that back in the pilot they thought they'd have Oliver wake up in Hong Kong. There is a lower quality video of the panel that appears to continue on for another half hour.
