A slow and at times meandering affair.

May 31, 2018 | Full Review…

It results in a good formula that, because of its excessive usage, became washed up. [Full Review in Spanish]

Aug 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Some great fight scenes and two antagonists that helped carry the season together, but it also had some really stupid character actions and a very familiar core plot thread...

While this isn't Arrow at its very best, it's still a show that is hugely enjoyable for the most part.

Sep 5, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

While [some] moments... add to my frustration with how some of the narratives throughout the season play out, it conveys perfectly, yet again, how much Oliver has grown.

There is odd but kinda good "chemistry" now vibing from those [Diggle and Dinah]. #DontGoThere!

With the premiere of its sixth season, Arrow shows that its grasp on the DC TV crown won't be loosened anytime soon.

    This season was lame , Oliver is a weak hero and his team is useless. The story started to get weak and boring in episodes 9 - 23

    It is just insane to be exiting

    Season 6 to me was maybe the worst season and had some really bad writing errors for some characters that made no sense and was kind of annoying. For me season 6 is the worst season of arrow which is hard for me to say since i loved this show

    Arrow season 6 is a bit of a weird season. The season has one main villain that we don't know is the main villain till half way in. This season had some good episodes and some bad episodes. The season finale is the best one. I liked it quite bit, something I wasn't expecting and I thought It was good. There's not that much drama which is good, but the team spiting up caused the season to go downhill for me. Ricardo Diaz is an okay villain but him teaming up with Black Siren (Laurel Lance) caused some drama with Quentin that i just didn't like. Overall this season isn't the best season but is still better than season 4 by a long shot. I do like this season but I wished they could of made it better. I do like how they made it so Oliver went to prison and William was a cool character but overall its decent.

    Season 6 was awesome! Nearly every episode aside from the first episode was thrilling, nonstop captivating storyline, and many emotional moments all the way till the end.

    A bit of a let down after season 5 but it still has some great twists and a fantastic story for The Black Siren.

    This show is still fighting and it deserved better.

    Despite the "EXCITING" ending of last season, with this new one many of the fans were frustrated with how slow it was and to be honest I agree with them. This time things change, this time he is not a villain, but they are 2 main villains and 3 secondary villains, for God's sake! But how exciting! It is clear that not the 5 villains of this season are a lot of characters without much to say (Except for Ricardo Diaz) who have worn motives such as "I want to take over the city", "I must take revenge on Oliver because I kill my son ", and that concept is already boring, and it is worse because there are 23 chapters, if each one lasted approximately 23 minutes, it would be fine, but not each one lasts 43 long minutes that makes it more tedious to watch the series. Everything is made up of repetitive elements such as Oliver's team fighting and then Oliver says things like "I must beat Ricardo alone", and then Ricardo defeats him. There is also the FBI behind Oliver, an item that was already used in the beginning of the series, which makes him look SPENT. Is that the entire season is full of worn elements, that of the two main villains helping to load the season, I would not consider it that way, in my opinion the character of Cayden is just a hallucination to make you believe that this season is not so slow As you think, it is just a pretext for Ricardo not to come out of the closet and execute his plan, worst of all, he is not even a good villain, he wants revenge because he BELIEVES that Oliver killed his son, when in reality he did not, He is a very poorly written villain who, as I said, is a hindrance that delays Ricardo's revelation. The choreography as in all seasons seemed very artificial to me, if it is evident that it has improved, but not to the level that you say "WOW" you still do not believe it that they are really fighting and that takes power from those scenes. The end of the season could have been used to end the series, but no, it is just another cliffhanger to extend this series that its glory time only lasted two seasons, they could have ended with something like: In short, this season was just another low point in the series, it is too slow, the subplots are exhausting, to tell the truth, it no longer has anything interesting to offer, the ideas are sold out and the only thing it is achieving is be an insult to good television.

    An extra star for the breathtaking, shocking and cliffhanging finale that makes all wonder what will happen now as the World knows Oliver Queen is Green Arrow. Most of the episodes were depressing as too many supporting characters and so many villains plotting against the Arrow.
