I really liked it. There were a few things that seemed derivative, but so what - it's a street-level superhero origin story, and it was done really well. Also, I love the way they're interpreting the character, and integrated aspects of the story like Speedy, and hints of those early-70's Green Lantern/Green Arrow social-consciousness story lines. The fight and chase scenes were also really gripping and well-shot. I will keep watching this.

Edit: Oh, another thing: Amell did a good job in conveying that his darker self was his actual self, and the 'playboy' was a front, and not the other way around. Whenever he was pretending to still be the give-me-a-drink party-boy, he delivered his lines just a little flatter, so it seemed Queen, not Amell, was a bad actor. It gave an edge to the character, which I was pleasantly surprised to see.
