These polls are made so that casual (or regular) lurkers can express their opinion and participate to the life of the wiki; it's important to have someone else's opinion. I'm not surprised the results doesn't express the contibuting users opinion. Maybe one day the lurker will turn into an active member and explain in detail his opinion ; that's the path we have all followed. You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Youtube
You forgot to specify the poll's question. It was something like "What do you think about 'The Cape'?". When someone will read this thread a few years from now they will be wondering what we were talking about. Cameron: My brother says if you want to be good at anything, you have to practice every day.
She is so sweet always, I can't put it into words. I love how much she smiles. She is such a smiling girl its strange why she always gets roles where she doesn't get to smile. Her smile is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.
watch how embarrassed she felt when asked that question
I think she is embarrassed because she feared that she might not be able to give the right answer. Its not exactly her department. Her response indicates that she looks way differently to these characters than we are which is understandable because she played hem after all but it wasn't she who wrote them.
She might know their feelings, their thinking, their motives and she has a great part in creating these traits of these characters because it depends on how she actually interprets the writers ideas to the audience.(Summer seems very involved in her characters compared to most other actors) but the "who wins" scenarios are not her business, the writer decides it entirely.
First she asks the audience because she has no idea. Its a returning pattern in her interviews that she really tries to say something that would please the audience but she is often clueless what is "required" from her to say and this causes most of her awkward and cute moments. She apparently tries to be honest with the fans but she fears that she won't be "cool" enough that way( if only she knew how cool she is ).
Then she approaches the problem from a professional point of view and talks about how hard was it to play their fighting scenes.
She chose River because that was the hardest fighting scene she's ever done("she is the best trained") and I think from an actors point of view she gave the best answer.
I say she may be right BTW but depends on the circumstance. In an all out brawl with Rivers swords and Camerons bare hands Cam would shatter poor Rivers bones into dust.
Cameron moreover has another advantage: River can't read her and therefore she might not be able to dodge her attacks. This might be a problem in a gunfight too. However River has flexibility on her side and maybe she is precog too and that would negate the machine brain problem.
Moreover River is super-intelligent and if she can prepare she might be able to set up a nasty trap for Cam.
Cam also has limited strategy limited to only using her sheer strenght while River could outwit her fairly easily(even Sarah and John did that and River is far smarter than them) It also depend on the weapons available. If River gets future guns then she likely wins while with 21th century weapons she better choose another option than trying to penetrate Cams coltan alloy armor with guns.
I think despite all my love for Cameron I'll have to give this fight for River. It might be a close fight but I think Cam is a bit too straightforward to beat River( and therefore I came to the same conclusion as Summer herself ) Summer Glau is so awesome, it isn't even funny! Blood for the Blood God! Skulls for the Skull Throne!
Thanks for the insightful post Blazius! I am incompetent to answer that type of question because i'm 100% behind the writers. If TSCC writers wants Cameron to fly, that is fine with me; i won't spent 2 pages discussing the law of gravity and the technology available in 2027. For the same reasons, i won't discuss River's capacity to influence a brain or a chip, i leave that to writers, professionals like Josh Friedman or amateurs like you.

Almost 50% of the visitors (who have answered the poll) found us via a Search Engine which is too important imo; for a few month, i'm trying to favor a more direct approach with Summer Glau fans and a closer friendship with other fansites, which is a win-win situation for everyone i think.
A new poll is now on the news page; the goal is to get to know what you prefer and what could be improved. Taking on the poll and/or leaving a comment in this thread or the "Make a Suggestion" forum thread is always very appreciated; never forget that the essence of the Wiki is to build the site together.
What do you like most about this site? 1. All the great pictures
By looking at the results so far, it looks like you belong to the minority who likes more than one features; a large majority of people likes (most) the pictures.
Edit : if casual visitors like pictures, they have many opportunities to be happy since Fermi , me and a few others add regularly new photos, new HQ scans and we make also regularly fanart. You can also find me on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Youtube
