Really Good show btw spoilers

So I'm 13 and idk if i registered as an adult or whatever but yeah so i'm thirteen and watching through arrow and it's honestly a great show. There is some profanity but not a ton but it still might be something that parents should be aware of and be mindful of if there showing this to a young kid. Sex is really bad imo, I always skip through kissing scenes and sex scenes and stuff and although it's not like straight nudity it's still pretty suggestive like when two unmarried people wake up in the same bed and stuff. and the main character is a playboy so that doesn't help. The pilot episode has a scene where oliver and sarah are having sex and everything but i think if you skip through scenes like these then the show is good for 13 or 14 year olds. The violence is bad but i'm completely fine with that, for example characters get tortured and there's a lot of killing especially in the first season but later on there's some good messages with killing and stuff as oliver learns more and eventually he decides that killing is not the way he would be a hero. I'm not really touchy when it comes to violence but i get it if your kid is. Theres a lot of drugs in the show especially with teens but if you're not going to let your kid watch a tv show because theres drugs then thats stupid. obviously there's some conversations to be had with ur kid if there younger than 13 and watching this show with all these drug, sex, and violence. From a christian perspective, i think that this show is fine for teens over 13 if you skip sex scenes but if you don't skip the sex scenes then idk if this show is appropiate for anyone who wants to have a healthy mind, kids and adults. my parents watched this when my older brother watched this at the age of 12 and even when my parents were watching alone they'd skip the sex scenes- anything like girls in underwear, sex, etc is just not healthy for anyone of any age.

A life changing show

It’s a great show, with many positive things I could say about it. But the main thing I’d like to say about it is all the positive messages within it. Throughout the show, Oliver grows as a person, And the audience grows with him. He’s a great brother to his sister Thea, and a great friend to John Diggle. What really love about this show, Is it doesn’t shy away from sappy and cliché themes. When they present of the theme of teamwork, You will feel happy for everyone on the team. The show has a way of making cliché themes feel more real than other shows do. When they first show you Oliver showing up on the island, He’s an incompetent spoiled billionaire brat. Throughout the flashbacks, he learns lessons He wouldn’t Have learned otherwise. He’s shown that his life has a greater purpose then being some frat boy. And even in the present day scenes, he still learned valuable lessons. I can Even say watching the show and having Seen Oliver Grow, I have become a better man. Ok, now mini rant. There is a lot of sex, drugs, scandals, gore, and violence. Characters will say bitch, asshole, and shit. Characters won’t say Fuck, instead they’ll say frick or frack.

First rate show, my kids loved it. The first few seasons contain very little language, but it gets worse as the show continues. Most characters sleep around (no nudity), and girls dress immodestly in a few episodes. A girl in seasons 2-3 and a man in seasons 4-7 are LGBTQ+. In season three, people go inside the head of a girl who acts like she is demon-possessed to try and "save her soul", and recite incantations to do so. And it is not the only time magic is used, so if you are looking for a realistic show, this is not it. The first episode starts with the main character (Oliver Queen) running off with his girlfriend's little sister. In the first seasons, the Arrow kills villains, but after realizing his methods are not morally correct, he decides to only give non-fatal wounds, or put the bad guys in jail where they belong. The Christian character on the show, who only appears in season 4, is the only good role model.

you have saved this city

The Arrow show is a dc film that mostly for teens and up. If it were a movie the series avererge would earn a pg-13 rate.. However there are some episodes that are more violent than others, and if were in a movie rate they would rated R for some instance graphic violence. The show is tv-14 for language dialogue some sexual content or situation's drug use and strong action thematic violence.

Appropriate for some kids

There is a lot of violence but It isn’t always bad. There is some disturbing scenes, for example In one scene There is a villain that stuffs people and then sticks them on polls for the police. But it isn’t always like that. This show also has good messages along the way. Overall I think this show is ok for kids but just watch it with them.

Great for teens

One of my favorite shows but the last two seasons get quite dark, gritty, and violent so that being said I feel it's not appropriate for young kids who wont understand the main characters motives or some of the more complicated story lines definitely a must watch for older kids and up though because it gets really exciting

Too dark for the source material

My mom is currently watching this on Netflix and I don't really care for the show due to the levels of extreme violence and sex There is TOO much fighting (with guns, knives, arrows, etc) and just the overall tone of this show is very off-putting! Little kids should stay away unless they can handle violence and sex Or stick to shows WITHOUT violence like sitcoms

Great storyline but violent

I’ve been letting my 14 to 15-year-old son watch this series over the past year but have been regretting it as I’ve been watching it along with him. The storyline has drawn us both in but as the seasons have progressed (now in season 5) the violence is almost too much to handle. The morality of the show has waxed and waned which has kept me allowing my son to watch in hopes that it will justify the evil but it’s just not enough to balance all the violent scenes and images he will never now unsee. I keep hoping for the triumphant, beautiful, meaningful, deep, powerful moments to come... and they do... but only after a boatload of the blood, gore, evil and inhumanity. It’s unbalanced for young impressionable teens. I am NOT a fan of the satanism —something that should never be taken lightly—and scenes that really mess with ones sense of decency, honor, or any hope of goodness should not be in superhero shows where young minds are watching and learning about life...even if just to show the evilness of the villain. It’s just not wise or morally responsible. Too bad that mixed in all that dirt is true gold by way of some good storylines and cinematography and pretty people. Btw, season 7 was my favorite.

Arrow review

I don’t think all kids should se it. there is some blood and i don’t think that every child are ready to watch it. There is some violence and it’s a very dark background about the story of Oliver Queen, and kids who dont understand it are no old enough to watch it
