'Arrow' Star Stephen Amell Talks Marvel's 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D'

Yesterday actor Stephen Amell (Arrow) took to his personal Facebook page to answer fans questions about Arrow and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. He actually gives a really great answer:

"Yes... I do have a comment.

We are not in competition with other television shows. I realize Agents of SHIELD is an easy comparison, but it's also kind of lazy. We aren't trying to be the best comic book show, we're trying to be THE best hour of entertainment. Period.

There still seems to be a distinction that assumes television is somehow inferior to cinema... I think that's ridiculous. We embrace the rigors of an episodic schedule, use them to our advantage and churn out a kick ass product with a high degree of difficulty and virtually no margin for error. 966 minutes of programming every year.

I couldn't be prouder of what we do and that sense of accomplishment is based solely on the quality of our product, not the performance of anyone else's."
Also, Arrow producer Andrew Kreisberg adds:
“We don’t really feel like we’re in competition with anybody else, we’re only trying to outdo ourselves as we move forward.”
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and Arrow Return in a Few Weeks on ABC and The CW!
