How do I hate thee?  Let me count the ways….

Intriguing challenge this one: we always find new sides to explore in the characters we love, but I think we never really gave much thought
to  those we hate.  Well, let’s get to it!

In growing order of dislike, the Nymeria Productions Inc. is proud to present….

1. The blue alien robbers/would-be-arsonists from “I Yensch, You Yensch”


Why do I hate them? First, because they look like rats – and I hate rats. And second, because they are *stupid*.  Even a fool with half a
brain would have turned back and fled into the night when he saw a complement of Peacekeepers on the premises.  But no. The two
idiots did not just stay, they concocted an impromptu plan to turn the arson into a hostage-and-ransom scenario.

The only redeeming quality I can find in these two morons is that they opened the way  to some great Rygel action (go, Dominar!) and
an equally  great short-term alliance between the Hynerian and Scorpius.  Which makes me think that the galaxy would be a far more
dangerous place if those  two were allies for good….

How would I kill them?  Well, death would be too merciful for them, so I would like to put them into a maze (like the rats they are),
where they  would be condemned to run and perform under the strict supervision of a cruel and (of course) mad scientist.

Not that they would learn anything, of course….


2. Sjerjna and Mu-Quillus, from “Meltdown”


Of course I hate them!

For starters, they steal precious screen time from the goings-on between John and Aeryn while they are intoxicated by drexim.  Who
cares about an undead, pale-faced lady in distress and an ember-faced evil alien, when there are some much more interesting scenes
to watch?   At that point, we had been waiting for two and a half seasons to see some serious action between our star-crossed lovers,
so forgive me if I can’t stand these  two interlopers!

Then there is the matter of who or what they are.

If on one side I can sympathize with Sjerjna’s plight, her desire to be with real people again, to live again (except she’s dead and  that’s
a little, tiny bit impossible, of course), on the other that lady is a massive whiner!

Her wails grate on my nerves and the constant “oh, please, save me!” expression she wears on her face makes me want to slap her. 
Am I being evil? Yes, but who cares?   *snickers*

Mu-Quillus is far worse. Far, far worse. Because he is a killer of Leviathans.

And that, in my book, is the utmost sin. There should be a special hell for those who hurt these wonderful creatures, and in it a special
place for people who do it for business and economic reasons, like Mu-Quillus.

Since Sjerjna was already dead, thinking about something nasty for her would be overkill (no pun intended…), but for Mu-Quillus… ah! 
I would  love for him to be beaten to death by a host of Pilots. And since he fears the cold, the Pilots should use big icicles to do that.

((insert evil laugh))


3. R. Wilson Monroe, from “A Constellation of Doubt”.


We know that the so-called “gentlemen of the press” are more often than not everything BUT gentlemen, especially when they work for
TV and are ready and willing to do anything for audience and ratings and all that yotz.

This particular anchorman’s sins are pretty nasty.

He created a program that put a disquieting spin on the arrival of the Moyans on Earth, playing on people’s unconscious fears of the
unknown just to get a few more shares in audience.

He found some evil-minded guest stars (ewwww….) that helped him drive his point home and – worse still – he used young Bobby
Coleman’s home-made vids of the visit to twist situations and sentences all out of their original meaning, by operating a careful and
evil cutting-room job on them.

He had no qualms in interviewing that poor, crazed sheriff from “Kansas” and using him in a very callous way, for Cholak’s sake!

But his worst deed – ever – was the way he grilled the incomparable Officer Aeryn Sun in a direct interview.  For that alone he should
be sent straight to the Hague Court for Human Rights, and put to trial.  What?  Officer Sun is not technically a Human? 
That’s a bit xenophobic, isn’t it?


As for how I would like to see Mr. Wilson Monroe punished for his evildoing, I think he should be relegated to hosting kids’
programs only – the Teletubbies or something similar.   For as long as he lives.  Hell, yeah!

I know you haven't officially posted it yet but I already read it and enjoyed it immensely! :)

The two blue monkey/rat/men were annoying but I must say they were so idiotic that more than hating them I felt sorry for them!:-D

LOL about Meltdown, that is so true! It's like they had to give us a moaning bimbo and an ugly irritating Leviathan murderer to offset the J/A hotness in this ep - just in case too many people melted into their armchairs watching too much of a sexy thing! :D And hell yeah, go Pilots - that's a good ending for Mu-Quillus - how can anybody kill such noble creatures? It would be like killing a puppy or a kitten..:( the idea of dying Leviathans makes me sad!

Uh I like the off the beaten track choice of Monroe! He really represents everything that is wrong with the press today! However one redeeming feature is that if he hadn't grilled Aeryn, we would not have seen that beautiful look of introspection Claudia gave us when asked if humans and Sebacean could possibly procreate - I love that look, great acting!

You called me softie, but you only actually killed one out of five of your choices!!!!! Now I feel like a mass murderer! :D

Thanks for entering, lovely job!

I started from the concept that there are fates far worse than death, and worked from there.
So you might say that in the case of your "victims" death was quite merciful! :-D

As for Monroe... well, I was of two minds, because while I hate the character I like the actor a lot, since the long-gone days when I watched Space: 1999. And I had the pleasure of meeting him in my very first convention (2007) here in Italy: he's a delightful gentleman with a great sense of humor. Did you know that in most movie trailers the narrating voice in the background is his?

But Monroe... he still makes me... grrrrrrrrrr!

Thanks for stopping by! **flower**

The actor does have a fabulous voice and I didn't know about the movie trailers, but I can well believe it! He actually has a kind face even in FS where his figure is definitely controversial! :)

The fact about movie trailers was news to me as well.
Oh, and at the con he showed some samples of his work: in one of them (a crime movie) he was working right alongside... Gilina! :-D
It's a small universe, isn't it? LOL

I've got to agree with Laura - great choices, great writing and piccies, although I sort of feel sorry for the Blue Monkeys too. Going through life being that dumb is going to be hard.

If and when I finally get round to making 'my edit' of Meltdown, with all the annoying bits taken out, I'll share it with you! I was going to repeat and re-edit in the really good scenes, to keep the run time up. Unless anyone has out-takes we could add back in?

Oh, you're right! It's punishment enough already.... :-D

Lovely idea about the Meltdown "director's cut"! If we find any out-takes, we'll call you, don't worry! :-D

Thanks for the feedback! **high-five**
