    At the beginning I have problems with that, the characters doesn't appeal to me much specially because they spend too much time trying to get into their stories without much action. The only ones I kind of like since the beginning were Rush and Eli. As the series progress TJ, Greer, Young, Camile pick my interest. The others still needs a bit of work.
    They hit us with guns, bazookas, tear gas, tanks, APVs, helicopters, rockets. I'm pretty sure at least one of them used really harsh language.

    I know what you mean. The only character I feel I will never connect with is Rush. I simply dislike the man. And it's not even a good dislike - like with Gaius Baltar - just an annoyed one.

    my temperament is somewhere between greer & young, i also tend to agree with greer, vanessa and even scott to a degree, and the only characteristic i have in common with rush is not being burdened with the curse of tact.

    I do not really need to relate to someone while watching a show, but I had no problem relating to the majority of the SGU characters. there was just one annoying me every time I saw him. do not even remember his name, but he got his nose broken by Vanessa James in one of the last episodes

    Since they are the closest examples of real people in the SG franchise, I can relate to just about all of them. So my answer is no.

    I can relate to Eli, I am a touch overweight and a huge nerd/geek, but I can't relate to his life situation

    I do things that get the job done even if it means being alienated or losing a friend or two.

    I like to be alone, theirs no one to mess things up.....

    I would have to agree about expecting things out of people....

    I often say things that most people dont get/they'n to be funny or smart..... the ding with the pie or the simulation is done....

    Always in over my head...

    Always cynical in my head but some what positive on the out, being cynical on the in is easier because the failures of team/self are easier and wins are enormous.

    I think Scott, to me, was a very realistic character. He was a young military officer still learning how to command. However, he also had relationships/friendships with both military and civilian characters and sometimes had to choose sides. I would get really excited when Greer would go all badass on people though. Especially with the Lucian Alliance. That was epic and reminds me of some of my military buddies that I've served with. I'll agree that instead of relating sometimes I look for traits in people that I admire that maybe I would like to be more like. Sometimes you see some you're glad you don't have.
