Re: Defending Admiral Cain from Battlestar Galactica(mentions Dick Che
That line is from Razor, which fans generally agree screwed the character beyond recognition anyway. I am judging the character by her Season 2 appearance.
Well, that's a convenient load of BS. I guess we can all just disregard anything that doesn't fit our particular argument then.
You responded to Sid's
comment on her allowing Gina to be raped by saying they didn't know Cylon's were genuinely emotional beings at that time. But if you simply want to induce pain as a method of torture, there are far more expedient ways of doing so than through rape. Rape was chosen specifically to exploit those emotions mentioned above. You don't need it explicitly spelled out in Razor
for their motives to be obvious, in S2 or otherwise.
Nor was her portrayal in Razor
significantly different than it was in Season 2. She was a dictatorial sociopath in both depictions.
