To be honest, Boone was always bland and unmemorable to me and Liam just seemed to have more presence.
Actor-wise, yes. Writing-wise, no.

Plus I found Liam's alien origin more interesting than Boone's ex-army officer turned cop background.
I could never get past the idiocy of his origin, growing to maturity in like 30 seconds. Not to mention the sexism of bringing in a new male lead in such a stupid way rather than just having Lili Marquette become the new lead character (which would've been a natural -- they were setting up a Lili-Da'an relationship late in season 1 that could've easily taken the place of the Boone-Da'an relationship which was the philosophical heart of the show).
