Did they intentionally cast someone with giant boobs so that they could make reference to them throughout the show, or did they cast an actress who happened to have big boobs and then decide that they should draw attention to them?
It could be either one. They'll never admit which one is correct though at least not publicly. Anyway...nice rack so whichever reason it was it don't matter.

I got confused for a second there and thought I had somehow stumbled into the Voyager forum...

I don't think it was intentional since the series did exactly two jokes about it. The referance to McKay staring at her chest, and then actually seeing McKay staring at her chest.

yer i think it was coincidental. However interesting James was originally suppose to get get pregnent not TJ. But the actress who plays TJ actually was pregnent so they decided (for the 3rd time) to use that.

Interestingly, every time a character (and hence an actress) has gotten pregnent on the show, they've cancelled the series the next season - i'm seeing a pattern...

Re: Am I the only one who loves SGU?

I liked SGU plenty. The characters were a little less likeable than prior incarnations, but I felt that it tried not to be as trapped by cliche science fiction tropes like SGA tended to be, and SG1 tended to parady (the latter being preferable). In some ways they failed, and others they succeeded. I honestly felt quite bad for Eli in the final ep and I couldn't stand him through most of the series - too many shades of Wesley Crusher with that one, but not quite as annoying.

And yes...Lt. James..."I'm up here!"

Re: Am I the only one who loves SGU?

I really disliked SGU. It just didn't feel like a SG series. I only watched about 4 episodes, and everytime I just didn't like it, except for one episode. The soldiers were going against the civilians, trying to take over the ship. The episode wanted you to like the civilians. Personally, I sided with the soldiers, and hoped the civilians got defeated. I'm not even sure why they were against each other (I hadn't seen the episode preceding it) but I just felt that the soldiers were right, and the civilians were wrong. But, besides that episode, every other time I tried to watch thew series, I just got bored.

That went the other way around, the civilians wanted to take control from the military. For the stupidest of reasons too. The civilians felt they should have been in charge since in civilized countries the military anwers to civilians. Conveniently ignoring that they were hired by the military and signed a contract saying they accepted military authority.

It had to do with the fact that Young was starting to go off the hinges, and that (as far as the civilians know) he left Rush to die on the planet just because they disagreed.

Thing is, no one on the ship (military or civilian) liked Rush and at that point a lot of them were blaming him for stranding them out there. So why would anyone turn on Young for ditching Rush?

Because, like it or not, Rush was an asset.

Because for most people, it's not okay to murder someone, no matter how much you don't like them.

But Young didn't murder Rush, it was Rush though who framed Young for murder few people knew that part though.

I thought it was because the civilians (correctly IMO) thought they should be in charge since they were the ones actually trying to understand, maintain, and take control of the ship they were stuck on, while the military dudes pretty much did nothing except when they stumbled upon a planet. Then the military executed a stupid plan to get them home that nearly blew up the goddamn ship, Col. Young had his bunch of cronies do everything on the ship, and Young left Rush on planet under suspicious circumstances, so it's not surprising that they mutinied.

Of course, the writers ignored the fact that they had people on both the military and civilian side unite in their distrust of their leaders, so the whole black and white, civilian vs military thing didn't really make sense. Especially when Lt. James probably had grounds for relieving Col. Young of command for cutting her completely out of the chain of command.
