Tsk tsk. He didn't say anything about physical appearance. James is also physically capable/aggressive, (read bad ass) and I am sure has a lovely personality.

That said, yeah, Varro wins.

It was cheesey that he just looked at her at the wedding and fell in love. Well if I can't have TJ she'll do. :p.

apparently i'm not right-minded - i'd refuse james without hesitation.

it's not that she's not a nice woman, nor is it that she's unattractive - obviously she is. but she doesn't appeal to me personally, never has. not all blokes have similar tastes, whether physical or otherwise.

True dat. But then again, preior to 'Seizure', last time we saw McKay, he was happily involved with Jennifer (Keller). No mention at all about her or Atlantis in 'Seizure'. Sadly, all we got was a passing reference to "Shepherd".

What i dont get is this. James was always the one wanting approval, wanting to prove herself. How does Varro give her that? I expected her to go with Greer, since she probably admires him.

Keeper
April 28th, 2011, 08:21 AM
she's also a higher rank than greer, which may make a small complication - who's in charge?

with varro, she sees a man who is strong, confident, in charge, and with more experience than most of the earth people - he's lived his life under constant troubles, and still come out fairly balanced. he's proven he can put his life on the line for people who took him captive - he holds little or no animosity and has been co-operative.

greer is reserved, and in his duties, while he can clearly take the initiative when needed, he looks to a superior officer if they're around - he's probably less likely to head off for a few days camping in the woods or whatever, since he'll be busy making a home and making sure that his wife is comfortable.

varro can easily show a challenge to james, and yet hold her in high regard at the same time, because he recognises a woman of authority, that is his equal in many ways, unlike greer who may see her as his superior because of their job roles.

Once they're trapped on Novus do fraternization rules really matter? They need to reproduce because those kids are going to help them do simple things like grow food and build houses. Rapid baby making will be important once a secure food supply is established.

the rules might not - though we're never told about that, and with young elected as mayor (at least twice, apparently) it's possible that such things are held on to, at least in tradition.

however greer's acknowledgement of james as superior officer might get in the way. he may not feel comfortable enough in that situation. if it were myself in it, i know i wouldn't - and greer's comfort zones haven't been fully explored to say whether he could cope. i'm just suggesting the possibility, not saying that they couldn't be together - but i just can't see it.

I've become very impressed with the James character. She has evolved so much over these two seasons and it's a shame we cannot see her continue to grow.

In this episode we see a level of maturity which was probably always there, but at the beginning was side tracked for a time due to her involvement with Scott.

To be fair, certain fans couldn't see past her breasts because they're juvenile, not because there's nothing there. It was bizarre to watch the the people bleating about objectification being the only people actually objectifying her.

Unfortunately the "decision" to have a loose girl with big boobs cost them an enormous amount of women viewers (Briangate had the numbers a while back). Her character was completely unnecessary and hurt the show.

It had nothing to do with appearance but everything to do with what that character was intended to accomplish. If she was a 32AA , homely, and wasn't in that broom closet with Chauchy we wouldn't be having this discussion right now.

Well thats showing peoples insecurities They have an attractive woman on the show and because of one scene in the 1st episode she's "loose"? Wow some people take TV WAY too seriously. Compared to most of the crap that festers on TV that was nothing.

oh, also, it's OK to have characters in Star Trek dressed in skin tight unforms (or even some of the women in SG-1, some of those outfits were revealing), but SGU puts a woman in regular military clothing and because she's attractive, "equipped" and has ONE "hot" scene, she's useless and ruins the show. Please............

Bit hard not to objectify her when the first time she appears on SGU, she's nailing Scott in a broom closet. Then Eli starts perving on her with a Kino in a later episode. I'm glad SGU has a capable female soldier even if it's just a recurring character, but they could have treated her better from the beginning instead of obviously trying to use her to appeal to the 18-35 male demographic.

It did hurt her, but at the same time it also hurt Scott who pretty much ignored her and decided to move onto a new conquest.

It also hurt SG1, when Vala showed up and wouldn't shut up about sexual matters. It was hard to take her serious when she kept going on about sex.

Loose? We've seen her have sex with one person thus far, and maintained interest in him and no one else for the better part of a year. This isn't the 1950's!

I don't see what one has to do with the other, least of all considering the fact that that's the first we saw of Scott too. They did do her a disservice in making all of her storylines early on about her love interest though, but that's not really the same as objectifying her.
