BTW, You_Will_Fail, I like your new profile picture. Almost makes me miss the first three seasons of Voyager...almost.

Re: Does It Get Better???

She didn't have the hair for the first three season.

Stupid mushroom princess wig.

It's like there was a daring heist at my wankbank.

I meant the character, not so much the hair. Although I'll admit I did like her long hair at the end of season 3 much more than her shorter hair.

According to interviews, the decision to give her long hair was due to her not wanting to put on the elf ears every day.

Also, Jennifer Lien (like Jolene Blalock) had naturally long hair, and what they wore on the show was a wig.

Good idea, I just wish it hadn't taken so long for them to make that change. By the time she got her long hair she only had a handful of episodes left.

Re: Does It Get Better???

I heard it was an allergic reaction that built up over time.

have you ever seen the Big Lerbowski?

They kept saying...

"That rug really tied the room together."

Of course it was also urinated on by Nihilists, and that might never be my plan for a dream date with Jennifer.

Re: Does It Get Better???

I liked her long hair way more, although it looked far too wiggy at times. I definitely did miss Kes after her departure, everyone added something to the show for me except Harry. And she was definitely changing as a character at the end of season 3 - more serious.

Yeah, I have to wonder how her character would have developed had she stayed on the show. Though with that said, I do like her replacement, 7 of 9, much much more.

Re: Does It Get Better???

It's not Seven or Kes that you have to consider, but instead Harry or Kes.

Imagine an episode where it's just 40 minutes of Kes and Seven taking turns brushing each others hair, and half one though Kes says to Seven "Do you miss Harry?" To which she replies "Who's Harry?"

I'm tempted to say that Harry should have gotten the axe instead of Kes, but then Timeless might not have been nearly as great. Playing a major role in my favorite Voyager episode ever scores him a lot of points with me. Kes, while in general much less unbearable than Kim, never contributed in a major way to my favorite episodes of the series.
One episode might not seem like a lot, but if it's your favorite episode of the series then it is a pretty big deal (and I am once again referring to Kim in Timeless)

Garrett Wang being cut from the show would not have precluded Timeless from still happening, considering it is a time-travel story.

Hint, hint.

Re: Does It Get Better???

You know, you just led me to consider the possiblities had Kim been axed...

...only for it to be a Captain Kim rather than an Admiral Janeway who shows up in "Endgame".

I suppose you're right. It would still have to have been tweaked some, but you're right that they probably could have still made it work.
