On the first day of her residency right out of med school, Emily Owens (Mamie Gummer) could have sworn she had landed right back in high school.  There was the hot guy everyone dreamed of, the mean girl who made everyone’s lives miserable, and the spooky, overbearing authority figures who made you feel like you were never good enough.  But that as just an illusion – for as Emily Owens soon finds out, real life is not at all like high school.  In the real world, there are life and death stakes, which is why they make you sweat blood and tears all the way through med school.  Yet, miraculously, Emily finds a way to humorously navigate the real world terrors and responsibilities of her first day as a doctor.

Snap Judgments: ARROW, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, THE CARRIE DIARIES, CULT and EMILY OWENS M.D.

ARROW
According to the Official CW Description: After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine.

Why We’re Excited: The CW (formerly WB) knows a thing or two about adapting DC properties for television (See: SMALLVILLE’s decade long run). More exciting still, star Stephen Amell’s fantastic first impression already has us asking Hartley who?

Why We Probably Shouldn’t Let Our Excitement Get the Better of Us: Hero-wise, Green Arrow isn’t quite in the same league as Superman. What’s more, when Tom Welling first swooped onto the small screen, he didn’t have to compete with the likes of what Christopher Nolan (Dark Knight Trilogy) and Joss Whedon (Avengers) were bringing to the big one.
