Interesting article I read recently with LeVar Burton

I know this article is a little old, but I found it interesting nonetheless and I thought that I'd share it with all of you. I just hope this is the correct manner in which to share this so please forgive me if this isn't the correct way.. http://io9.com/5925015/the-one-thing...-his-sexuality

Yes, I hated that LaForge was inept around women. I felt that was unfortunate for the actor and the character.

Re: Interesting article I read recently with LeVar Burton

I thought it was realistic in the sense that not everyone actually has a lot of relationships. My brother is like this, he's a loner by choice. So I relate to Geordi LaForge as a character.

I am glad they didn't go for that "original wardrobe/makeup test" look. That would have dated the show a bit much.

Why do people have a problem with LaForge being bad around women? Not everyone can be Kirk!

Grant, I couldn't agree with you more to save the universe...if that makes any sense. I too hated how LaForge was inept around women. He doesn't have to be Kirk-like, but give him something....at least something that wasn't a holodeck creation or something. I do admit that I was tickled to death when Worf was "tutoring" LaForge on love and women..."women must be conquered."

Worf knew what he was talking about!

He was involved with K'Ehleyr, Troi, Jadzia, and Ezri!

Yes ,there is a middle ground between Kirk and inept. It was almost a Barclay level of nervousness as it concerned women for Geordi.
