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...

Feb 17, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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.

Jun 19, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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

Dec 27, 2017 | Full Review…

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

Audience Reviews for Arrow: Season 6

    I hated how Cayden James killed a bunch of innocent people and went after Oliver all because he thought Ollie killed his son when it wasn't even him. These repetitive Berlanti revenge plots really frustrate me.
  • Nov 19, 2019
    best season yet. I love how this story played out
  • Oct 26, 2019
    This was the end for me ...It had a really good 4 seasons... then I had enough of the identity politics.

    Terrible writing. There are so many polt holes in the last few seasons that make them a little unbearable to watch. In season 6 the main villain is a computer nerd and some inept street thug who has no business being considered a real threat. Oliver fought and defeated Malcolm Merlin Damian Dark and Adrien Chase who were all in the league of assassins. Hell he even defeated THE Ra's al ghul!! Diaz is a street thug who shouldn't have anything on Ollie and Cayden James is a looser who couldn't fight his way out of a wet paper bag. New team arrow are a bunch of ego inflated idiots. Ollie took on all of them at once and didn't break a sweat. The fact that they thought they could put a beating on him or do it alone is laughable. John leaving him is a slap in the face to their friendship. I had to stop watching because it got so dumb. Just a few of the many plot holes

    It was an okay season. I actually love Diaz.

    Like season 3, this season was ok. But, it was really dumb at times. From diggle whining about not being the green arrow to the team splitting up for no reason was really a setback. But, ricardo diaz was a cool villain and i like the father-son dynamic between oliver and william.
  • Sep 06, 2019
    Season 5 was great, in season 6 Arrow started to get less and less good.
  • Aug 31, 2019
    The start of the season started very low but near the end like episode 15 is where the season starts picking up and getting really leading to a really good season finale
  • Jun 20, 2019
    The sixth season was mostly quite boring, due to the uncharismatic villains, the needless feud between the two vigilante teams, and Dinah Drake becoming filled with rage and evil. The one redeeming quality is the relationship between Oliver and his son, and his struggle to balance being the mayor, being the arrow, and being a parent. By far the worst season yet.
  • Jun 03, 2019
    Some good additions like Oliver trying to be a father and stepping away from The Arrow (a bit). The drama from the team was a bit much. The big bad, Diaz, is certainly evil, but I don't like that you don't really know why? Plus the actor is so stiff that there's not much to enjoy other than the tension is creates for our heroes. Despite suspecting the finale, it definitely left me intrigued to see how Season 7 would handle the aftermath.
