Furry Stupidity.
 
IT'S THE NEELIX APPRECIATION THREAD!!!

Don't you just love Neelix? Every time you want to smack the fluff off him, Ethan is doing his job perfectly. Gods bless his six toed little cotton socks.

Yes, Ethan is a very talented guy.

I like Neelix! :techman:

OK, sometimes he's annoying and jealous. I guess he's a bit hysterical too. But considering his background story and tragic past, he's admirable in his way to keep his mmod up and help oters as well.

As for Ethan Phillips, he's a great actor.

I despised Neelix in early eps. Later, I found him more tolerable. I can't say I was ever actually glad to see him.

Ringing endorsement, eh?

I abhorred Neelix the first time through, but I must say I really like him this time around. Although I do kinda miss the Tom Paris rivalry, it was pretty funny in "Live Fast and Prosper" where they were seeing if they "still had it" by playing a fast one on the Doctor.

I adore Neelix, I do.

I didn't mind he was annoying. He was from "the street", so he didn't have proper manners or up bringing. Heck, he didn't even have water!! So I understood his jealousy and his over exuberance. He was lonely. Poor guy. :(

Still, I thought he was funny too.
I have a thing for quirky humor.
I kinda like Jar Jar too. :alienblush:

I also think the make up artists did a great job designing him.
I find him too be one of the coolest looking aliens in Trek too, if not the most detailed. He's not just latex ears or a forehead bump.

Jar Jar Binks at his finest makes Neelix look like Charles Bronson in Death Wish II.

You've mentioned Neelix and Jar Jar Binks in the same thread.

The world will soon implode.

I like Neelix episodes! I need shooting!

There were a few good episodes with him at the centre of them, but really, when he was just there cooking and having fun with the crew, he was insufferable.

I didn't hate him as much as Harry though, so that's something.

He was really annoying in the early seasons but he's one of the better characters later in the series.

Danger Mouse I like your thinking!

^ And I like it when people recognize Danger Mouse. :techman:

Generally I like Neelix but I truly dislike any scenes with him and Kes, mostly because that relationship is just so wrong in my eyes. Ethan's comic timing is brilliant, which makes Neelix that much more likeable.

Hi. My name is Joe and I like Neelix. :shifty:

When I came to these forums I was not surprised at all by the mass disdain for him though. His Kes period jealousy did him no favors at all, and I'm sure many people couldn't get past that. His sugary niceness and tendency to yap-yap-yap incessantly probably sits poorly with people as well.

I think what endeared Neelix to me the most was his loyalty. Even though he displayed some cowardice at times, in the end he really is someone I would want in my corner in a tricky situation.

I always sort of felt bad for him that he didn't get to go to Earth. He seemed more excited about getting there than some of the people who were from there. The "Ambassador" thing is all fine and good, but I still hated seeing him left behind (although his departure made for some very touching Trek moments).

I also enjoy the metaphor Neelix became: A Party Animal.

Get it? ;)

I know........that's terrible.
