God, I hate Tracy Scoggins. I hate her more than Byron. And the worst thing? Clearly I am supposed to like her or at least admire her spunkiness. Does she last the entire season? Is she in the films?

ETA: My hate for her is a pure and glorious thing. Refined, almost. Everything about her just...just..fills me with rage. And she seems to give more speeches than Sheridan.

ETA 2: Now I hate both her and Byron equally. Why are they on my screen so much? Why do the writers feel these are people I should be seeing and hearing all the time? Where are Londo and G'Kar? Sheridan? Delenn? The show works when I see them, but these newcomers make me want to do random acts of violence.

Now I have seen the telepath singalong. I think I might be traumatized for life. Actually, that is a lie: I know I am traumatized for life. My eyes! My eyes! You know how sometimes you see scenes and you wonder who on earth thought that up and how drunk or high they were when they thought that would work? This was the Platonic ideal of that scene.

Still like Gwen. Still think the rest are wankers a bit. If they're nothing else, they're horribly smug most of the time.

Also...why would you put a human being possessed by an alien that can move about in gas-based form in a cell with holes in it? And I got the horrible feeling that they would have left that poor girl in there forever if Gwen hadn't intervened. However, I don't worry too much about the fact that they have broken all privacy and civil liberty laws because they're too incompetent to really make much use of any information about anyone. Frankly, I'm a bit surprised when they make it back to their base.

Though the show works in that you feel a bit superior all of the time, as the characters are so thick.
