AR­ROW, Chan­nel 9, 8.30pm

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Tuesday -

IT’S the lat­est rein­ven­tion of a DC Comics char­ac­ter but this mod­ern-day twist on Ar­row ren­ders the char­ac­ter an un­con­ven­tional hero. Cen­tre stage is Stephen Amell, who you might recog­nise from Pri­vate Prac­tice and Hung. Amell is the pre­sumed-dead, bil­lion- aire play­boy Oliver Queen — not the sort of name that would au­to­mat­i­cally have the ladies form­ing an or­derly queue. Any­way, Queen has been ma­rooned for five years on a re­mote is­land and re­turns home with a bunch of tricks he uses in his anti-crime cam­paign. Solid ac­tion and rea­son­able spe­cial ef­fects are the or­der of the day.
