Critic reviews for The Recruits
The series is edging out of that plot corner while simultaneously finding its footing in an expanding TV universe.
The Recruits was a solid follow up to Arrow Season 5 Episode 1. It introduced us to the new team and set up some of the storylines for the coming weeks.
I was ready for this to be bad. Really bad. Confession: It wasn't.
Arrow winds up saving The Recruits by giving its primary plots a semblance of progression they needed in order to keep the audience's interest and intimate new drama in the weeks ahead.
We pinned our hopes on the second outing from this series of Arrow to up the ante and start to give us something to care about, and it tried. It really did.
