I think the whole Connor threat thing is interesting. Even if not meant terribly seriously, I think it is pretty sleazy behaviour on Connor's part and, of course, helps explain why he really needs to grow up a bit before Abby is going to remotely view him as a potential romantic partner - because she knows he's sleazed his way into her flat under false pretences (when it becomes clear he's no real intention of finding his own place) and put her in an embarrassing position.

Of course, by season 3, he's prepared to leave when asked seriously and that may be more important than I thought on first viewing.

Interesting about the parasite. She's also working on the Elephant parasite project at this point so you'd expect her to be becoming something of a parasite expert and yet, as you say, she's letting others do the talking. I don't think backing away from the parasite is unreasonable, I'd guess it's the kind of creature which will take a lot less notice of things like body language - its probably seeking heat or smell and getting out of the way fast is a pretty sensible move.

Gah! lj just ate my comment! Let's try again.

It's definitely not Connor's finest hour, it has to be said. If I haven't watched series 1 for a while, I sometimes manage to forget just how immature he was back then, especially when dealing with Abby. You're right - that needed to change, and they did tone that down a lot in later series for anything to realistically happen between them.

I'd guess it's the kind of creature which will take a lot less notice of things like body language - its probably seeking heat or smell and getting out of the way fast is a pretty sensible move.

Good point! I'd not thought of that, but now you've said it, it seems obvious!
