It has been suggested that, uh, Nicola Bryant was asked to reveal more or herself than, um, other
companions traditionally had in the past. She was occasionally asked to wear clothes that she herself would not have chosen to wear, bless her. (I had no objection whatsoever
I have a lot of respect for Jeri Ryan as an actress. I think she does a remarkable job, for a character that could come off very one-note... Uhura
could walk around the bridge in a miniskirt, and in the Ď60s nobody thought that was completely insane. That was just part of the era
that show was produced, and people accepted it. Seven of Nine, what are you thinking? It kills me, and it was always just vaguely embarrassing
when you would have to do serious scenes with her in the room. You are just sitting there thinking, ĎWell, you essentially have this naked woman at the table.í Everybody is just supposed to pretend like that is okay
, but you donít play anyone else like that. Why doesnít Janeway come to the bridge in a halter-top one day? Seriously, why doesnít Tom wear hot pants periodically?
I am human. I enjoy seeing Thandie Newton nude.
In horror movies, young women are always required to investigate strange noises, in their most revealing lingerie!
: Thereís a flashback sequence here where Wolverine, new claws and all, is running down a corridor naked. Apparently a bunch of female crew members, including James Marsdenís mom, met Jackman
at the end of that hallway, shaking dollar bills. Chris
: Jeez, even Cyclopsís mom likes Wolverine more. That dude canít catch a break.
If you Googled 'Kate Uptonís nipples
,' youíd see Kate Uptonís nipples on a horse and Kate Uptonís nipples under a white, wet t-shirt. Weíve seen Kate Uptonís nipples and weíve seen pretty much every piece of her body except for both pairs of her down low lips (which Iím sure look like a dwarf rose blooming in the sunlight). Even though Kate Upton has been 98% naked, sheíll never get 100% naked...because she knows that shitty bloggers (Why is everyone looking at me like that?) and asshole whores on social media will pick her apart and Photoshop her naked body on an ad for Real California Milk.
, "The Internet Is To Blame For Why Kate Upton Wonít Ever Get Naked In Front Of A Camera"
It is an established fact that you can gauge the popularity anime/video game character by the amount of people drawing them naked and posting them on the Internet, and its is unlikely that this discrepancy between Tifa
smut escaped Square's attention. The natural solution was to fetishize Dagger
in a similar vein as Tifa. But instead of giving Dagger a massive bust, they focused on her booty instead. That is undoubtedly one of the most lovingly-crafted derieres I've ever seen in a video game. I'm kind of curious about how many man-hours went into sculpting and perfecting that particular part of Dagger's model, but not sure I'm prepared for the answer.
We finally meet Asuka. You may remember her from the umpteen billion toys, posters, and perverted PC games you people
We obviously could've filled this entire list with clickbaity yellow spandex fetish art of April O'Neil
and called it a day.
Thereís so little happening
at the moment that Janeway calls a meeting of the senior staff so they can all talk about their dreams. Remember when TNG
did this episode (Night Terrors) Ė at least they bothered to have Troi floating in a green cloud with her bottom filling the screen
On this artistically-bereft episode
, entitled, 'Tsunkatse,' Captain Kathryn Janeway is out of the picture
, so the focus is put on Jeri Ryanís character, Seven of Nine, another female character whose prominence on the show owes itself to, well, something different from Kate Mulgrewís. See, 'Klingon' isnít just a warrior race, itís also what Sevenís impractically tight uniform does to her breasts.
Now THAT'S what I'm talkin' 'bout! Engage! Q
: You don't find this whole setup a little predictable? Prurient? Designed to titillate? Troi:
I sense a similarity to my character purpose. Q:
See! See what I mean! I mean, yeah, Jean-Luc, I know it's pretty, but isn't it a bit obvious? Picard:
TíPol is problematic character Ė it never feels like the Enterprise
writing staff get a proper grasp on her as a character. TíPol has generally been quite reactive...It doesnít help that Star Trek: Enterprise
has been consciously objectifying her since "Broken Bow". While Star Trek: Voyager
set a precedent for the incredibly-tight-catsuit-wearing-alien-babe with the character of Seven of Nine, the show never had Jeri Ryan strip down to her underwear while rubbing gel all over her co-stars. To be entirely fair, Enterprise
has been quite happy to show off its male characters Ė Trip saves the ship in nothing but his underwear in Acquisition while even Archer occasionally strips to his undergarments.
However, thereís something disconcerting about how Enterprise
repeatedly stresses TíPol as a sex object in a way that simply isnít true of Archer or Trip. "Shadows of PíJem" has Archer bury his face between TíPolís breasts
for a cheap gag. Episodes like Shuttlepod One and A Night in Sickbay feature male crewmembers sexually fantasising
about TíPol. It goes without saying that TíPol and Hoshi donít get similar episodes built around their own sexual fantasies concerning male crewmembers
As my girlfriend remarked, 'I feel like every episode is about Lois's boobs,' demonstrated in this my very own Lois's boobs collage from this season. Maybe if the crew spent less time thinking of ways for Lois to appear in new, cleavage-y outfits (preferably while dripping wet), we could see past that rack to the actual talent Erica Durance has for playing this role.
: I like Erica Durance in ridiculous outfit
s, but thereís a point where it really starts distracting from the show. Lois isnít Intrepid Girl Reporter just because she shows her cleavage...I dunno, maybe Iím just a prude, I just think Loisís
sexiness should come from her wit and ideas and confidence, not dumb outfits. Chris
: Youíve seen more of it than I have, Uzi. Is this a recurring theme with Durance? Because in three episodes that Iíve watched, two have had her tied up, and one of those involved actual honest-to-god bondage gear.
