Re: Ever like a show but...
The Sawyer love is remarkable. When Sawyer performed surgery on himself using only his fingers, I lost my ability to suspend disbelief and pretend that those were real people I was magically eavesdropping on. Might I suggest that when the script is loaded to portray a character as bad ass but beloved (at least by the pretty people,) it's because it's the main character? This is particularly true when the characters have to be more or less abnormal to tolerate the person the script favors.
