With the second season on the way, the #1 television series on The CW that averages 4 million viewers weekly “Arrrow” now has the first season available on DVD & Blu-Ray combo pack starting September 17th. Contrary to some initial skepticism, this version of DC Comics' Green Arrow is not same as the one in “Smallville.” In addition to the first season of the series, this DVD & Blu-Ray set of “Arrow” features over an hour of bonus content.
A re-imagining of the DC Comics character Green Arrow for the CW, Stephen Amell plays Oliver Queen; a billionaire playboy not to be confused with Bruce Wayne. After being stranded for five years on an island that claimed several of his loved ones, Oliver returns to society. Now he leads a double life of a nightclub owner and green-hooded vigilante hoping to clean up the city and his family's wrongs. As this is a DC Comics series, the life of a vigilante is filled with police wanting to take him down and dark family secrets to be revealed. And CW fans love the male eye-candy and drama. The only thing that “Arrow” doesn't have is any appearances from DC Comics characters like Spuerman or Batman.
“Arrow” has an SRP of $59.98 for DVD alone and $69.97 for Blu-Ray. Both DVD & Blu-Ray combo pack versions will feature all 23 episodes of the first season. Special features in the DVD & Blu-Ray include a documentary about re-imaging the DC Comics version of Green Arrow, two behind the scenes features covering fighting & stunts, highlights from the “Arrow” panel during Paley Fest 2013, deleted scenes cut from the CW airings, and a gag reel.
After checking out “Arrow's” first season on DVD & Blu-Ray, you can look forward to the second season on the CW starting October 9th at 8pm.
