And whenever I see Bo & Lauren being romantic, I just feel like the two of them are speaking a different language. As nice as she is, Lauren feels like she doesn't fit in with the rest of the group. To make another Buffy comparison, she's the Riley Finn of the group.
I think she's more the Giles of the group, the character whose superpower is being really smart. And I like it that she and Bo come from different worlds, and that Bo likes her because
of it. Bo is this ultra-sexy, ultra-charismatic, ultra-tough character -- basically she's both the quarterback and the head cheerleader -- and the person she finds sexiest is the science nerd. How often do you see a show embracing an attitude like that, that smart is sexy?
