Arrow: Pilot

Join Lily, Shawn, and Scott as they enter the dark and brooding world of everybody's favorite hooded archer: Arrow! Listen as they take you through the history of the Green Arrow in comics, discuss why almost everybody in this show is a terrible person, and explain why this is just The CW's grittty mix of Batman, Robin Hood and My Name is Earl, with a little Hamlet and Harry and the Hendersons thrown in. (Listen and you'll get it.) And, as a bonus, Lily opens a present given to her by Shawn and Scott.

(Disclaimer: There are some very minor Arrow season 1 spoilers. Don't worry, they're brief and you'll know when they're coming.)
