I know Waiting on Wednesday usually features an upcoming book release, but I have been so excited about this show since I saw the premiere episode at Fan Expo in August that I just had to pick it for today – and thankfully we won’t have to wait long for it since it premieres tonight!
Oliver Queen is a young billionaire playboy who gets shipwrecked on an island when the yacht he’s on capsizes in a storm. For 5 years he survives on the deserted island until one day he gets rescued by a passing boat. Back in civilization, he seems to be experiencing a shock to the sudden change in living conditions and, with the help of his friend, attempts to re-acclimate himself to his former life.
When nightmares and flashbacks plague his unconscious state, he realizes what he must do. He must use the survival skills that he has learned to right the wrongs; a vigilante of sorts.
Based on the DC comics character The Green Arrow, this show produced by The CW (and airing on CTV in Canada) looks like it’s going to be an amazing hit. The writing is fantastic and witty, the characters are dynamic. I have been non-stop raving about this show to everyone ever since seeing it over a month ago, counting down the days till it was finally October 10th!
