Season five of "Arrow" gets itself back on track after a rather wonky two seasons. Though it doesn't quite get itself back up to the standards of its first two seasons, it at least introduces a compelling villains and a swath of new characters.
Now juggling his responsibilities as mayor with his night-job as a vigilante, Oliver Queen is reluctantly talked into taking on a host of new recruits to train. He'll need them considering there's a new threat in Star City: a serial killer known as the "throwing star killer" who seems to have a personal grudge against Oliver's alter-ego, the Green Arrow. After being put on the sidelines for some time, Ollie's long-time allies John Diggle and Felicity Smoake are given subplots of their own - the first in being framed for a military-based crime, the other in becoming involved with a shady hacktivist group known as Helix.
Towards the end of the season the tight plotting unravels a little, and the ongoing flashbacks into Oliver's time on the island (during which he actually travelled to China and Russia) seem rather superfluous, but for the most part "Arrow" returns to form with its usual blend of mindless heroics and vigilante justice. It's fun as long as you're not too invested.

Finally caught up on Arrow and it's kind of meh. Production values are great and the story is well made. I just don't particularly care for it anymore, and there's a distinct lack of impact on Green Arrow's public life that is woefully untouched on. There's a ton of promise here, but it ultimately falls flat.
