[livejournal.com profile] viridian5, I am rewatching Andromeda backwards from the end, because why not, and I am really taken aback by the last two episodes. Mostly because I just noticed that one actress is playing two totally unrelated roles, and it's seriously weirding me out. Rhade's wife and the bar refugee chick that argues with Dylan about Seefra 1 are the same actress.

Maybe it's all some scam she and Rhade cooked up during his decadent days on Seefra pre-Dylan? Nah, that requires brains.

It's not the first time. The actress who played the Pax Magellanic's avatar appeared a few seasons later as an entirely different person.

I'd wondered if maybe the people on Seefra were like...copies of people in the Known Worlds or something, since she was all "I dreamed you were still alive" (which, ok, lady, it was 4 days, calm down.)

Haha yeah, I remember that. I think mostly I was taken aback to see it happen in the SAME EPISODE.

I don't think the creators bothered to give much thought to anything in that final season. They just didn't care. If they're that short on imagination, brains, and money, why not use the same actress in two different roles in the same episode for no plot reason?

I don't know if it's distance or time, or what, but rewatching it from the end backwards, I don't find the final season quite as annoying as I did back then. Though, God Telemachus' characterization is WEIRD.

Watching it back to front, the show can only get better. *g* I watched one of the final season episodes recently and couldn't get over how cheap everything looked. You have a show about a spaceship crew where they're seldom on the ship or in space! Kevin Sorbo finally got to turn Andromeda into Hercules.

Also, Rhade characterization was so damned weird. I couldn't help thinking he'd been debased to make Dylan look even better. I couldn't forgive the show for making Beka so stupid (and, inexplicably, the Nietzschean Matriarch!) too.

Doyle confuses me even more than she did back then, but I hate Brandy Ledford less, so there's that at least.
