Guys, we need to dial back on some of the comments about those on other messageboards. This isn't the place for that and I don't want to see any board wars starting here. Like was said above, it's best to ignore it than to bring it here. Thanks for your cooperation. ---------------------------------- Agreed. I like the way he's been introduced so far and how they're having the character interact with other members of the team. I think with any new character, a balance is hard especially in a show this many years on the air. If they're presented too much, some feel the other characters are being neglected but if they're not presented enough, some might wonder why they even brought him/her on in the first place. I remember some people having issues with Tara because she was so quickly added to the main credits yet she didn't get any development until her character got the axe. :lol: There's definitely the possibility they may go too far with Jesse but so far, I'm encouraged. It also helps that the character seems rather subdued (in my eyes at least). He's had his super hero moments but I don't think they were over-the-top considering his line of work. Now if he starts defusing bombs left and right with zero experience and jumping off buildings to save people or something every week, I might get a bit annoyed. For some reason, I find myself way more accepting of Jesse, Walter and Tom than I ever was with Ryan. Maybe it's because Delko was never one of my favourites to begin with and I felt his character had sort of run its course so I was looking for something new and fresh, whereas with Ryan, I was frustrated with losing my favourite character who erm, didn't get the greatest sendoff. But even though I can say now that I enjoy the character of Ryan, I wish I had been a bit more open to him in the beginning, lol. I've kind of been on both sides of the penny so I definitely get the concerns on either side. Either way, Jesse's sort of kick-started my interest in the show again so I'm going to remain optimistic about him.
