Does anyone else have trouble relating to any of the main characters?

    Like Petra, I can see bits and pieces of myself in most of the characters, but it's not a huge thing for me to relate to the characters. I love Daniel to bits but don't relate to him at all.

    Now that's disturbing.

    Sometimes, it's less about being like the character and more about wanting to be with the character. I often find male characters who set themselves apart to be very attractive. The viewer gets inside information as to what makes them tick and why they behave the way they do. Consequently, the ego tells you, "If I were there, I could show him I understand and he would trust me as a friend."

    Perhaps unconsciously this is what we find most appealing in our favorite characters, particularly sci-fi: that intimacy shared between friends. Knowing that WHATEVER happens, they are always there and will never leave you. Think about REAL LIFE. How many people (family aside) do you know who would do what the SG characters do for each other? How many are intellectual, physical, and emotional equals? How many know just how to best encourage you? How many have the patience to deal with you when you're being plain b-----?

    I think most humans are very lonely, despite all the techno communicating we do. We are, by nature, social/pack creatures. Even when we say we want to be alone, it's usually because, while we want close friends, we'd rather be alone than put up with the idiots around us.

    SG offers us the Good Guys, the ones we want to have over to our house, to go out with, to spend time with.

    I never related to any of the Stargate characters. I love them, admire them, some of them were my role models when I was a kid, but I don't get why should I relate to them? I don't need it to enjoy the show. In fact I tend to like more shows which feature the characters that are totally unlike me, the more different the better. It's more interesting for me that way.

    That said, I find bits and pieces of myself in many SGU characters.

    I guess I can relate the most to Eli because hes kind of a dork and sometimes says things that no one gets. I can relate to Rush a bit because of his cynical nature. I can also kinda relate to TJ a bit because she trys to be understanding and helpful even when shes in over her head. Those three also happen to be my favorite characters.

    I wasn't able to relate to any of ther characters on SG-1 and SGA either, so it's not really a surprise for me.
    I can relate to certain decisions and character traits and all but then again, I haven't been stuck on an Ancient ship lately.

    I can't relate anyone to myself except eli, but i fully understand almost every characters, the only one i cannot understand is Young.

    At the end of S1, he was like just afraid of making any decisions, so anybody said anything, he just went along with it.

    I have trouble to relate with most of them, except for Rush. I like imperfect and sometimes devious characters, without falling into Melrose Place or soap opera stereotypes. Everyone else seem to be more like draft or a rough sketch. Hard to explain. Maybe in Season 2 that feeling will go away.

    It's funny, one thing I have learned in life is to pretty much expect anything out of people. So, in watching SGU I find it entertaining.

    I haven't had any problems relating. I don't have to BE exactly like the person to get what they're going through and I think SGU does a great job of making me one with their situation.

    it depends on the people watching some people need a connection to like the characters and to understand their place in the story.

    I relate with Greer for somewhat the same reason.
