In a vacuum, none of these things are bad, but taken together, they reveal a rather disturbing trend among this show's adult female characters. It says a lot that I can think of and define five different types of personalities from female child characters and can talk about their independent stories and traits (Liz, Mandy, Tamika, Sarah, Kelly), but the female adult characters besides Connie barely have stories of their own beyond "X character's spouse".
Basically, I think that before we start shipping Connie off with some boy-of-the-week, we ought to round out the cast a lot better.
Yes, I completely agree with you, Mitch being the obvious exception.PennyBassett wrote:Agreed. It is interesting, and even a little disappointing that so many female characters come in for the sole purpose of marrying someone. Would it be going too far to call it sexist? I don't think it's intentional. What most likely happened was they just had a lot of male characters and wanted them to get married, or be married. I wish they would have started off with a mix of female and male characters, specifically adult ones, that we could ship and think about. THEN, they could put people together, after they had developed a strong friend relationship. That's something else that's always bothered me. Specifically about Jack and Joanne's relationship. Whit has said he doesn't believe in "love at first site." Yet, it's very clear that Jack and Joanne fall in love the second they see each other. This happened on a smaller scale with Bernard and Mod, Wooton and Penny, and even Eugene and Katrina. That said, I think we've all had that time where we meet someone and feel an immediate connection with them, but those instances consist of temporary romantic feelings and usually lead to nothing more than a close friend.
Strength for today, and bright hope for tomorrow.
