When Ollie is first brought into the camp, and the bad guy pours a glass of sparkling water, the ice cubes remain on the bottom of the glass.

Error? Or does Arrow take place in an Alternative Universe with different physical laws?

Obviously, the former. The ice cubes were probably plastic so they didn't melt and mess up continuity.

Though, I like the idea of the 2nd.

Couldn't they have just been wedged in there tight enough that they weren't able to float?

Ice melts in liquid. And the sides of a glass are smooth (and I don't remember if the glass was straight or angled). I would think that pretty quickly whatever ice was "wedged" would be melted and the cubes would float to the top.

And doesn't ice under pressure melt a little? That's what happens under ice skates?

They were underwater for sometime. And it was like two of them.

They were plastic.

Re: Green Arrow (CW)

Are you really nitpicking *that* aspect of the show in stead of hyper accuracy in archery?

Nitpicking? I'm not slamming the show for using plastic ice cubes. It was a weird production thing I noticed, like seeing the mike boom in a shot.

As far as the hyper accuracy? I'm fine with it. I prefer my super heroes to be, you know, super.

So far, much to my surprise, I'm enjoying the hell out of this show.

My theory is that 'Speedy' will die and Ollie will get a sidekick that he calls Speedy in her honour.

I like that idea. Thea would be a useless sidekick as is.

What about a side kick for mum?

Mum don't need a sidekick. Susanna Thompson is stealing the show by herself.

Crime is always a family business.

If she hasn't brought the new husband into the loop, it's either because she's sexist or that these things need to stay within the bloodline. Either way, being her daughter makes Thea double tapped.

Mrs Queen he doesn't need a sidekick, she needs an apprentice come successor, and Oliver seems to be a moron.

IMO it's a pretty good sign if all you can find to nitpick is something so minor.
