This is not about this episode, but following the tangent of roommates sorta half watching because they happen to be in the room.and my roommate, kinda half-watching it out of context, blurts out, "This is so BORING!"
Edgars is awesome.
I remember once watching an episode where Edgars and Garibaldi were doing a big exposition dialogue about the telepath virus/antidote and such, and I'm such a sucker for the politicking and plotting and planning in well-written fiction, and my roommate, kinda half-watching it out of context, blurts out, "This is so BORING!"
Eh, different strokes.
Not for me either. For my part, I think it's because the Lise-actor is rather appallingly bland. Such a pretty face which doesn't really do anything at all. Hard to care about her at all.And once again - the chemistry between Garibaldi and Lise doesn't work for me.
Yeah, I wondered the same thing quite a few episodes ago when using Sheridan's dad first came up. Like, did his mother suddenly die or what?? When they had their last 'call', his father talked about Sheridan's mother doing this or that so obviously she was alive and well.Lennier's Tears said:It's also interesting that there's only the one member of Sheridan's family anyone ever cares about. What about his mother? What about the sister who even had her own episode (well, not really. But still, it's a well-established character).
"I never meant to hurt you". If ever there was a more meaningless and vapid phrase... Like, oh really, and that's supposed to make me feel better??! Oh Garibaldi, why did you have to say that...
Lise was just an ordinary woman trying to make her way in a harsh world. She wasn't a hero and didn't really care about any causes. She just wanted to keep her head down and get by. It would be interesting to have seen what the security of the Edgars fortune might have done to/for her character.
