“Arrow” star Stephen Amell posted a video clip of GMA’s latest show “Alyas Robin Hood”. Although the actor just used an emoji, people are quick to feel ashamed that the latter was a rip off of CW’s hit TV series.
It seems that GMA is trying to recreate the success of the CW show.
The trailer of “Alyas Robin Hood” is similar to the first promo trailer. The plot is also quite similar with Robin Hood and Arrow being vigilantes. Moreover, long before the Emerald Archer of Star City was known as the Green Arrow, he was called "the Hood."

Meanwhile, “Arrow” stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, a playboy billionaire fighting crime with his bow and arrow while donning a green hood. The show will be back on its fifth season on Oct. 5.
Filipino fans of Stephen Amell were quick to apologize to the actor on ripping off “Arrow”. GMA has not commented on the issue yet. Reports claimed that the network is experiencing a decline with its programming.
