So, I was minding my own business while watching Numbers and I decided to find out if anyone else found Amita (the girlfriend, main character, genius mathematician, all-round Mary Sue) annoying.
Lo and behold, the first hit was a LJ community called ‘Amita Sucks*’ and it honestly cracked me the fuck up.
I mean, I can’t really talk – I’m sure this blog was five minutes away from being called supernaturalsucks but I don’t think I’ve ever called Sam and Dean ‘skanky weasel bitches’ or tried to add them to UrbanDictionary. LOL.
Female grad student: Ms. R. As a role model for female mathematicians, can you please tell me who I need to sleep with to get a job at Cal Tech?
Male prof: Ms. R. Did you know that your character, Amita, will forever be referred to as Skanky Weasel by intelligent and discerning viewers?
There was me, thinking that I was the ultimate rebel! Amita IS annoying, but half of the characters on this show have their moments. I wonder if there are mirror comms out there.
*Disclaimer: Just in case anyone from that comm still cares, I’m not making fun of anyone, just amused by the comm’s existence. In all fairness, I think my blog is kind of ridiculous too. Cathartic, but ridiculous. 😛
