Well, so far it's about 1/3 disliking the kids and 2/3 either liking kids and Icheb or not disliking them.

ICHEB.


I LOVE ICHEB.







and, I liked Mezoti mostly because she was Icheb's cute little snarky partner.

I did, however, think Icheb was tamed a little too quickly. He was more fiery in some episodes than others. Although, he was a teenager, and teenagers do tend to be a little bipolarish...rebellious one day and ambitious the next...

Also, I love Icheb.

love.
Ever see the movie "GO" with Katie Holmes?

The actor that plays Icheb(Manu) makes a small cameo in it.

^Never knew that! I have heard about the movie, though. I just have not seen it, or at least I think I haven't.

I think it was meant to be like a "Pulp Fiction" type film for the younger crowd because it deals with 3 or 4 stories that all happen in one night that all connect due to 6 degrees of seperation. Jay Mohr, Scott Wolf, Ty Diggs, Breken Mayer and a few other well known names appear in it as well. It's not a bad beers & pizza on a Fridat night with friends type of film.

So what do you think of Icheb?

I always assumed that the baby did not make it without a functional maturation chamber.

Re: The Borg Kids

I assumed because it was newly assimilated, it came from a near by star system. So they just took it home.


Sounds like a sci-fi movie title: "..It Came From a Near By Star System!"

LOL. Never considered that option myself, though, but now that you mentioned, it is definitely one way to explain it.

I like it better than: "Neelix ate him."


How absurd, Neelix is vegetarian.

Re: The Borg Kids

I voted "Meh. Useless." But then, I'm not much of a fan of kids on scifi shows in general. Didn't like Wesley Crusher or Naomi Wildman either.

Jake Sisko was a bit better...but I think that was because he 'grew up' on the show and had more adult-themed interactions later on.

But generally speaking, I'm bored by the kids storylines on scifi shows.

Thank God nuBSG didn't stick in that annoying kid that was in the original BSG series. Dodged a bullet there, I think.

How do you know. Maybe the one true god is Boxey. The Cylons are of the belief that in order to grow up, they need to kill their parents.
