Re: did anyone else like Bashir from the word go?

I started watching DS9 from the start again today.

In the first few episodes Bashir's like a cartoon stereotype of a philanderer, like Barney Stilson or Okana.

I think most screenwriters just have no idea how to write a believable philanderer, because their experience with jocks is being pushed around by them.
I think some of that was on purpose, though. Or, at least it seemed that way to me. He seemed to get around a bit, and he was playful, but it's like he was trying to be someone he wasn't. It makes me think there's a reason why one of his favorite holographic programs was James Bond-esque. Except, he's not James Bond. Jadzia could see that right away, and I think that's one of the reasons she brushes off his advances. He wasn't ready for her yet, and by the time he was, she'd found someone else. Such is life.
MA'AM. Hot damn, I can dig it.
