Much better than the Mr. Perfecty-Perfect-Pants we got. It's like they were saying "Look audience, Tuvix is perfect! Care about him!"
I thought he was kind of repulsive. You could make allowances for Neelix because he's a little dim and he's had a difficult life but Tuvix had all of Tuvok's intelligence. Granted there probably wasn't a lot of emotional
intelligence there but Tuvok was a pretty keen observer of non-Vulcans and had much less awkwardness than a lot of them.
And then you get Tuvix, standing too close, trying to hug you, inappropriate compliments.. I bet his hands were always damp.
