    Her character was horrible! I hated her so much, and I was angry when we say her again last week. I hope she dies.

    i think i agree...only not as vehemently. i thought she just interrupted the story and butted in where she didn't belong. leave her out.

    I definitely want more of her. I'm female and I like her. So it's not just the men.

    I think she and Sheppard could end up in some interesting situations.

    Btw... check out my blog!

    Her voice is grating and her acting talents non-existent. I think many people who say they liked Larrin actually liked the dialog and situations written for her and did not distinguish between the written character and the so-called acting of Ms Wagner. Just my opinion. Probably not even worth two cents.

    Her written character may be very good, but if the actress wouldn't act the part well, nobody would care about the dialog and the situations since it'd be really painful to watch. I don't think that's the case here. If you liked her character, she must have been doing something right. She won't win an oscar any time soon, I give you that, but she shouldn't be punished only for being pretty. Many SGA actors started with barely acceptable performances and got better progressively.

    Having said that, I liked her on the show. I don't know about the chemistry with Sheppard... after all this time, I'm so used to him being with some pretty girl for an ep. that I no longer expect anything out of it. I thought this was the case the first time she appeared, so I was really surprised to see her again in BAMSR. Nice surprise though.

    I didn't like her character or the actress's performance. She was written too over-the-top for me and I doubt a woman of her age would be the commander ofa ship.

    Oh, alright then, I thought you liked the character but not the girl playing it. I understand now.

    I guess I didn't find it weird for the SGA world. We've seen many times how a young hot girl happens to be some world's leader, and how they always fall for John.

    1. In "Sanctuary", a 10,000 year old being in the form of a pretty woman fell for Sheppard and they made out. We don't know how far it went.
    2. In "Epiphany", Teer and John knew each other for months before they became lovers.
    3. Mara, the airhead daughter of the Lord Protector in "The Tower", was after his DNA, not him. She would've jumped McKay's bones just as quickly.
    4. Norina, the Taranian chief scientist in "Inferno", waffled between her attraction for Sheppard and her attraction to McKay.
    5. Larrin bantered with Sheppard and kissed him as a distraction in "Travelers".

    Five women out of 74 episodes hardly qualifies as "many". And Chaya, Teer, and Norina were not space bimbos. Larrin was a two-dimensional, cardboard cut-out Vala wannabe.

    I never said she wasn't a knock-out. I said she has a grating voice and she can't act.

    Maybe you couldn't hear over your panting while she was on screen?

    Well, it looks like you've got your wish:

    Thats great news !

    Other than liking her i think the show need more recurring characters to fill out the world so it isnt only about Atlantis in the hole pegasus Galaxy.

    To be honest I don't much care for the Larrin character in S A though I do like Jill Wagner and much preferred her character Krista Starr in Blade the series.

    I really like the idea of her character... I think her and her crew (we assume she has a new one =) bring a nice Firefly vibe to the show and I think she could be an interesting ally for the SGA team.

    And before we get off track, i am in no way saying that any show on TV will ever be near as good as Firefly... just like the whole rag tag crew of grifters idea for SGA...

    Are you guys serious!! OK im a girl so i dont find her hot.. i loved her character her name everything.. travelers is one of my fave eps in season 4, i was glad they bought her back in Be All My sins Remember'd!!

    And why should there be any chemistry.. she just used him to gain control of the ship.. her character is devious, sly and smart they eventually became "friends" when she let him go for helping her and then ran into him again on another planet..

    Larrin: 'Shepard that better not be you!'
