    Well specifically a blog about Laura Roslin

    Some people just really get riled up even with a fictional TV character. Sure she wasn't one of my favourites and I would have rather she had turned out to be some secret Cylon but she is what she is and she really rankles my feathers but I don't think I'd have raised my voice this publicly about her character.

    Just found the blog amusing in a twisted way.

    I guess the blogger really enjoyed the final episode.

    I thought it was sad..... I don't like Roslin but I couldn't work myself into that much hate about a fictional character. The final episode I did feel sad when she died.

    Hey, really, thank you for posting that. I was worried that I was running a little low on my daily recommended intake of misogyny. But now I figure I'm probably good through the end of the month.

    I don't like Roslin but I wouldn't have created a wordpress about her alone just for that purpose. There's quite a few BSG characters I have grown to not like.

    Wow, that person has amazingly little understanding of the show he is watching.

    Sounds like he has a prescription in his head for the template of a good program, and judges the merits of the program entirely on how well it meets that template.

    Laura Roslin doubts her actions all the time, just she's in a position where she can't project those doubts to anyone except her closest circle.

    And 'Driven by external threats'? Give me a break, the show is about the internal thought process, balancing practicality with moral philosophy and questions such as human identity when mankind is pushed to its breaking point by an external threat.

    I completely understand this blog. I agree with the fact that I can't think of a single character on any other show that is one of the main protagonists that I hate more than Roslin. Though not because she's poorly written, or acted, in fact she was portrayed perfectly, she's just evil. Sure not an overtly Cain-esque evil, but evil nonetheless in an arrogant, tyrannical, power corrupts kind of way.

    Urkel would make you want to think of retroactive abortion.

    Mind you the actor is totally different out of that role, but it became a bit of a lead weight on his career.
