I'm not saying Lee seems weak if he loses control over anything. I didn't find him weak when he was hysterical over his father being shot.
Of course not, but I was referring to more of the snipey pissy stuff Lee does with his dad.
How can you pine for someone who obviously isn't that into you when push comes to shove?...If Kara wanted Lee, she'd have seduced him during the Colonial Day celebration. Kara doesn't want Lee, not really.
Well, in general, I would say that having a character pine for someone who doesn't love them is a classic literary tool. However, the way I saw it Kara was very into lee, and slept with Baltar cos she was scared and confused by that.
If everytime someone wanted another person they just went and told them, well, let's just say that Shakespeare wouldn't have had a whole lot to write about;). I think that saying Kara doesn't really want Lee because the didn't outright seduce him feels like a stretch to me. That would be a pretty literal plot and this isn't a literal show.
Her personality will always overwhelm his. This chemistry, I don't see it. I've never seen it. Zack Adama will always come between them, as well he should. Lee seems strong most of the time, save that when he's making puppy dog eyes at Kara.
I'm not arguing chemistry, cos it's in the eye of the beholder. I'm not even arguing Lee/Kara versus Lee/Dee here. I honestly don't even know whether Lee/Kara are meant to be together in the end.
What I don't really get is this idea that Lee would be a different character if Kara wasn't around or if he wasn't attracted to her. Lee is Lee, who he is doesn't change becuase of his romantic partner or situation. If he's the type of guy to throw a fit of jealousy, then that's part of who he is.
As far as Kara overwhelming Lee, I just don't see how this isn't a slam on Lee or Bamber, saying that he can't stand on his own against another actor or character. I think Bamber is pretty talented and can handle acting against Sackhoff quite well, and Lee interacting with Kara, romantically or otherwise, is very fun and interesting to watch, IMO.
