Dutch do we like her?

Post by VampireEater on Thu Mar 05, 2015 3:27 pm

She was made just for the show, but is anyone happy with her?

What do you think of Dutch?

I honestly don't know. I mean, I don't mind that they made her for the show. I need more of a feel for her before I can really form an opinion.

Going to be re-watching the series, so will see if after that. Or maybe next season!

I don't mind her,  I suppose she reminds me of Gus in a way.  They both have that tough facade, that sort of armor they had to to give themselves in order to deal with their environment. If they didn't show these moments of vulnerability,  where they show concern for others besides themselves,  I would probably dislike them both. I think the actress tends to over play some stuff so that she is almost annoying, but I don't know who to blame for that.

Plus she has good chemistry with Fet... I hope there is more with them this season.

I"m not sure if I like. Other than she brought down the internet. She doesn't do much else.
She comes off like a teenager who smoky and drinks a lot.
I guess I will have to wait and see how she developed in season two.

It all depends on what the writers are going to do in the long run for the show.

She's a little too "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" for me, just a cleaned-up version. Kind of an obvious character theme - rebellious troubled woman with unusual hacker skills being used by the evil establishment, etc etc.

I'm waiting for her to look disheveled... after all that running about through tunnels and being in swordfights, she's still awfully put together...

I agree. She's like a blond version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Except the girl with the dragon tattoo was more cooler.

Or the lovely accent to draw the Yanks in? Lol.

Hmm, Maji...
Spoiler:
Mother vs friend could be a little different depending on the person. Not yo defend Nora, I sometimes find her annoying too (maybe I just find anybody who doesn't appeal to my fangirl mode annoying...) But if that were me I'd have a hard time killing my mom, too.

I mean, I'd get the danger of dragging a demented patient across the city in search of cover, and she has her MD, but hey... love puts a blinder on things.

shes way too emotional...i dunno about you guys..but once an apocalypse starts and loved ones are injured...i hate to say it but like rick on TWD,that survival instinct kicks in and you just gotta turn off the emotion.

i'd most likely be like the early michonne..no words just taking anyone out cold as stone...

This is why I like you guys Very Happy There's no room for sentiment in the apocalypse if you want to survive. But we all know a Nora, don't we? The one who's paralyzed by emotions in stressful situations... I'm always like, "Cry later! We have to focus/solve this/make a decision now!"

Anybody remember Nora from True Blood? But really, I kind of like Dutch. She's not my favorite but she's pretty badass.

Majin: *does Rick head tilt every time sh!t's about to go down.*

Should be interesting to see where they take her character this season, what with that scene we have with Eichorst. She's not in the book so we have little idea what plans for her may be. Not like they can't change book character plots, but whatevs...

They have brought in so many new female characters. They just might have too.

I have to say, when she was welding that random thing using the fencing in S2 Ep1, I was like, "It's a vampire apocalypse, Dutch. We have neither resources or time for "your art." Stop wasting stuff!

IMO her name is Dutch "Oh $#!+ we need more women so we pass the Bechtel test" Velders. I do like that she's unapologetically bisexual and leans towards poly, without a lecture built into the story over either, but ... overall I find her to be like Goodweather: a great plot point, brilliant and charismatic in a functional-sociopathic and ultimately despicable way.

On the plus side, The Strain (TV) seems largely about the mythos and story, rather than about the characters. Lots of shows are worth watching for the characters; this one has been about the meta-story. If only they'd find meta-makeup and meta-FX. (I'm a fan, I gripe about the things I love.)
