Oliver gets around Starling City even faster than Jack Bauer did in LA. He also must have battle outfits stashed all over town.
I can go with some of the plausibility issues like the search warrant timing - and it was pretty clear that Tommy took care of the stuff (God knows how though). But, some of the rest so defies belief that it makes it difficult to give it a pass. The instantaneous disappearance from the psych room was the start and there was much more. Last week's subway still rates right up there. I hope they can pull themselves back from the completely laughable escapes and make it somewhat realistic within the show's own world at least. The 2 story lines are fun and well woven together - and this from someone who usually despises flashback stories that keep filling in the details. This is well handled and, while it does fill-in-some-blanks, it also has a separate story of real interest.
Well, it is a show about superheroes. ;) Honestly, she's no different then many other shows with computer "geeks" like any of the CSI's, NCIS, Person of Interest and those are more "reality" based if you will. Nothing she has done computer wise has bothered me more then any other show on TV.
Being an IT guy I roll my eyes at the hacking in most TV shows. But then again it wouldn't be much fun showing the hacker take two hours to break in so I let it slide. :)
LOL. Very good point. TV has hot looking men and women in all professions. That's why people watch mostly.
As for hot IT chicks, where I work now there are three insanely hot IT chicks (and I mean hot by any standard) in my building. One is a programmer and the other two are on the help desk and know their stuff.
There are a couple others that are very cute. I was actually surprised at the number of women in IT at this company. The last couple companies I've worked had a few women but not many. But even at those there was always one or two that were pretty hot.
So Felicity being hot doesn't stretch my imagination at all, especially when you consider 98% of all TV actors are good looking to begin with. :)
I think if your IT department is younger you'll have a higher chance of having women working there. If your IT shop is older it's going to be more dudes.
One of the support desk gals that is a super hottie is kinda what you envision as a "gamer girl" these days. About 20, hair in 3 different colors, nose ring and super, super hot. A 9 easy. And she's a huge gamer, would kick my butt in any game out there that's for sure. And of course she knows her stuff in IT as well. I would say Felicity most reminds me of her so very possible in my book.
The other gal there is also super hot, perhaps an 8. A bit older, about 30, just had a kid. But she is smoking. And again, knows her stuff.
One of the programmers is pretty hot, maybe a 7.
Also quite a few hot girls in QA. Although QA tends to be less technical, but even QA used to be all guys just 10 years ago.
I see a lot of inroads women (hot and not) have made in the IT industry in the past 10 years at the various companies I've worked for.
Yes there are plenty of girls (and guys) that claim to be geeks or nerds or whatnot because it's actually kinda "cool" in a way these days. But there are plenty of "real" nerds out there.
Well Laurel's dad could use a wardrobe makeover. His one outfit looks like he sleeps in it.
Well, we aren't talking about engineers. We're talking about IT in general as well as "geeks" and "hackers". Perhaps there aren't many women in engineering (and I'd agree) but there are plenty of women (hot and not) all throughout IT organizations, at least in regular companies (Pharma, banking, etc.)
