Re: Why Wasn't Neelix considered a candidate for removal after season

Being all porned out does not mean that meeting women in person is not exciting, even though I'm well trained to excrete disinterest from every pore. There is nothing I find more annoying than a woman miscalulating that I am in love with her just because It seems like I should have no standards and be swinging wildly at everything pitch.

My earlier post tripped something in my mind and I've started downloading season one of Kathy Griffen My Life on the D-List.

I guess that would only be annoying if they rejected you when you had in fact made no such advance.. here have a freebie rejection for something you never asked for!

Re: Why Wasn't Neelix considered a candidate for removal after season

Doubtful. A lot of females are in defense mode ready to repel the hordes they think may be trying to catch them in widely thrown nets. Oh did you talk to me a little bit, WERE YOU BEING NICE?!! Fuck off, I don't want to date you.

But really communication problems abound.

Re: Why Wasn't Neelix considered a candidate for removal after season

Yup. There is an echo in here.

Ethan was there for comedy.

They'd have gotten rid of him if they wanted to bring in someone new who was funnier.

Jeri was brought in for sexiness, so they had to remove someone else that was there for sexiness and not living up to that sexiness.

Re: Why Wasn't Neelix considered a candidate for removal after season

And a good choice was made IMO.. but really I can't wrap my head around Kes being sexy, it just doesn't work for me at all.

Re: Why Wasn't Neelix considered a candidate for removal after season

No, they got rid of Kim for Seven, and then they got rid of Kes for Kim.

Kim was not living up to his sexiness... People Magazine disagreed.

People Magazine won that argument.

I'm assuming that they chose Jennifer because she was paid about the same as Garrett.

How could I have lost track of this when I have discussed it ten thousand times.

Re: Why Wasn't Neelix considered a candidate for removal after season

How much farther could they have realistically taken the Kes character, though, since she was developing Advanced Magic Powers that let her do basically anything she wanted?

Re: Why Wasn't Neelix considered a candidate for removal after season

Before and After says that she was integral in the Year of Hell, married Tom, had his babies, mother in lawed Harry Kim and got her complete and unabridged medical certificate.

Of course none of that happened until after B'Elanna died.

Imagine every now and then Kes tries to get away with a perfect member and somehow B'Elanna just can't seem to get got.

Re: Why Wasn't Neelix considered a candidate for removal after season

I think the problem with Before and After, although it's one of the best episodes of the series, is that it showed us all of the most interesting aspects of Kes's situation in about half-an-hour.

We see her get old while everyone around her is still young. We see how that affects her relationships, even into a second and third generation. After that episode, what was really left to tell?

The doctor could have (and would have, I think) found a way to lengthen Kes's life if TPTB hadn't decided to fire Jennifer Lien. But then what's left that is new? Tuvok is already a telepath. They can't evolve her powers too much or she'll be able to do anything.

Re: Why Wasn't Neelix considered a candidate for removal after season

She did seem pretty depressed after having Tom's baby. Can't say I blame her.

Re: Why Wasn't Neelix considered a candidate for removal after season

The poor girl was bouncing in and out of The Highlights of Her Life, it's no wonder she needed sorting out. Imagine shifting to a new scene, and before you can even get your bearings, you're giving birth, out of a clear, blue sky! But I liked the whole Tom/Kes angle, as it stemmed from Kes - once, again - helping someone through a difficult period in their life. And that Tom stood by her, even when she had aged and he did not ... through her Alzheimer's and everything ... I felt they should've followed through with their romance in the true timeline. I thought their personalities and backgrounds were an interesting mix. I wonder if Roxann Dawson felt threatened when her character had to die, in order for this to happen - knowing that someone was going to get the axe by Season 4!
