Should Jarvik have been a semi-regular?

That was his job, and Davyd Harries nailed it.


Likewise, which would have made him an excellent permanent character.

What, a psychopath who (by his own admission) hates women, but as a kind of perverted gift wants Vila to rape one? No thanks Angry

Actually, following on from that - and at risk of this Jarvik thread being hijacked by other Ben Steed creations - that's the difference between the three.

1. Gunn-Sar talked a big talk, but at heart was a softy old pussycat, who liked sewing. His wife loved him.
2. Jarvik was sexy and fun - Servalan could have had him shot at any time, but chose not to. She seemed to enjoy being bossed around by a sexy ruffian - and, most importantly, she was always in control - "I would like you to do that again"Wink.
3. Doran - see post above...

You are so right! Second doh moment. My goodness though Doran. Wouldn't like to be Dayna or Soolin - trapped on board with a man who doesn't like women. And whose gun just goes off. And surely Vila would get fed up with the bromance after a bit. Mind you the recurcussions from Orbit would have been interesting.

But we don't have on screen evidence for Doran being anything more than big talk either! What evidence we do have, of how he behaves towards the major female guest character near the end of the episode, supports the argument that it's more ego than anything genuine. Also supporting the defence of Doran not being the rampant rapist that some claim is the fact that nowhere else is Vila seen to be a really bad judge of character; again, the opposite is true. We don't of course know whether or not Doran enjoys sewing however...
Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

If I had my way, I'd have replaced Tarrant and Dayna with Del Grant, Ven Jarvik and Deeta Tarrant.

Is the galaxy ready for a 'kick-ass' team like that? They'd clean up that nasty Federation in no time.

Sorry, but Season C Dayna is worth more than the lot of them put together Wink

My dream-team is: Avon, Cally, Vila, Dayna, Tarrant, Zen and Orac.
 
Anniew
Ooh not Deeta Tarrant. He and Avon would have had to fight for the mirror. I would like to have seen Grant join them though. It would have been good to have somebody with some interest in rebellion to challenge the others and she and Cally are a great combination.

Have to go with "Other" because instead of this:

"Absolutely not, because I canít stand the character"

I'm going with this:

"Absolutely not, because he'll be dead in a week" Wink

Also Avon's last words are too good to waste, they are one of my favorite lines in "Harvest" and it has lots of good lines:

"Spare us the eulogy, he was a Federation thug."

And I agree with Avon. For all his posturings that's who Jarvik was. He might have been a good adversary if he didn't fall for Servalan so completely.

We had quite a bit to say on him on our show:

I found Jarvik an attention-grabbing character for this one episode but I don't think that character could have lasted much longer than did.

While he had a compelling presence and a knack for monologue, his character was at odds with himself and Servalan. He came off as the alpha male but was fine with being her kept creature, jumping through hoops for her after he'd already more than proven his worth?!? Just doesn't fit, I think. Likewise Servalan doesn't take on co-rulers and her infatuation with him would not have been outlasted by her own selfish ambition. Great character though.

When is the next B7 In Character podcast out MrEModels? I've had to go back and listen to an old one in order to satisfy my cravings. They're as addictive as crack cocaine.
 
MrEModels
Ha! Cheers Briggsy1! After some website niggles, i'm glad to say/type that the latest episode, featuring Largo, is out now. Make the most of it though - there won't be one next week as Ian is away on holiday on Cygnus Alpha
