Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season [Blu-ray] cover

 

Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season [Blu-ray]

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 9/27/17

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

This is one of my favorite shows. Every year it surprises the audience with new characters and huge shocks and surprises. I love superhero shows, anyway, but this one is really gritty and great drama. It also has some super sexy guys in it. I just love it! This season was no exception.

I only have two complaints about this season. One, although Prometheus was a great villain, he kind of made Oliver and the others look stupid. Secondly, the one episode about guns was really hard to watch because it was just not the type of subject a superhero show should be discussing. No one tunes in to "Arrow" for political or ethical discussion.  Plus, they bent over backyards so much showing "both sides" that it was worthless.

Otherwise, I loved this season, and the season finale was fantastic. I just hope they do one day bring back Malcolm Merlyn and that he's not really dead! He's one of my favorites.

If you love Arrow, buy this and the previous seasons on DVD. The features are always great, too. They have a ton of them that are worth watching for any fan of the show.

In Season Five, newly appointed Mayor Oliver Queen finds himself challenged as he fights on two fronts for the future of Star City. With his right hand, John Diggle, back in the military and his sister Thea adamant about hanging up her vigilante hood as Speedy, Team Green Arrow is down to just Oliver and Felicity – but they’re no longer the only vigilantes in town. Green Arrow’s public defeat of Damien Darhk at the end of Season Four has inspired a new crop of masked heroes to step up and defend the city, though their painful inexperience makes them obstacles rather than allies in the field. The arrival of a deadly new adversary will force Oliver to confront questions about his own legacy, both as mayor and as the Green Arrow
