    Pull a Shannon? What's that mean?

    she also has every reason to be emotional or whiny..her Dad is going to die probably right before her eyes....make just about anyone act like that.

    In case of spoilers (I'm still unsure of when to use these)

    Spoilers for LOST below...

    Spoiler:
    Shannon was a character on Lost that was killed off in season 2. Her character was generally whiny, annoying, snobby, and self-centered. However, in her last episode, a backstory is brought up through flashbacks in which you get a glimpse of why she was the way she was, and it was a real defining moment for her. Even better, was that it set the stage (at least imo) for her to really grow even more. And then...she gets shot in the stomach and dies. It made me sad, because I had finally grown to like her, and I've seen the same sentiment amongst many other people who've watched Lost.


    Hope that helps a bit...although you'll probably have an answer before mine gets posted. I'm looking forward to the post screening to be over with so I can post like normal .

    This.

    I see a lot of potential for this.

    Am I the only one hoping that both Wray and Chloe turn out to be well-written, thought provoking characters and that Wray becomes something of a mentor for Chloe?

    She's going to be thrown around a bit in the situation. And even if she doens't appear to be strong, she could be a character that posesses a lot of intellegence and something called inner strength. Not every character has that.
    This is the part where I hope and pray the PTB learn the meaning of subtle.

    But she has to at least be tolerable in that he character (likeable or not) serves a purpose. I've gotten the feeling that some people aren't even willing to tolerate her character.

    Play nice.

    But anyway, I'll join this movement. IMHO she is so vastly different from any other Stargate character (Keller included) that it's going to be pretty damn hard for her to NOT be interesting, for me. She's an unknown entity, a new archetype to explore, and that's good.
    This is going to be fun, right?

    She was a character from Lost who started off snobby, whinny and really emotional (and also didn't develop that much).

    Guess what...

    She didn't last that long. Don't pull a Shannon.

    Dunno, I haven't really noticed it. Hasn't been as bad as with Keller I don't think, but then Chloe isn't replacing a character so maybe she'll get off a bit more lightly...

    I noticed that too. I think when the original casting call I think what popped into a lot of people's minds was blonde with big hair in a tight top. That's kind of what I thought too, but I actually don't think TPTB (despite all they've done) would do that.

    Eventually my mindset of thinking went more along the lines of Rose from DW until she was cast and more information was released.

    I'll just say snark is good for the soul. It helps muchly when re-watching Irresistable, for instance.

    Chloe's a totally different one from what we've seen on SG, hasn't fit any of the character archetypes that have been presented.

    That? Would be cool. I didn't make that career connection until you pointed it out. But what a great way to make connections between characters.

    How can anyone properly form an opinion about any of the characters in this show, when it hasn't even aired yet?
    Characters develop and change all the time and isn't character development what SGU is supposed to be all about, personally I can't wait to see what each individual team member has to offer.

    Chloe was pretty much maligned when info about her character first came out, but as more info about the series emerged, more people seemed to have abandoned the hobby of bashing the character. I guess things were looking good and the rage after Atlantis's cancellation has subsided.

    Hopefully this trend continues.

    The appearance and mannerisms of this actress are completely different from the sides. I have dismissed them entirely and have no preconceptions of the character at all.
