It's true, in that scene I would have slapped Tawnia .

Perhaps, as some say, we women are the "weaker ***", but surely don't we lack the grit. :lol:

I totally agree with you, Virginie. If the A-Team were to have a female reporter tag along, Amy would be my pick everyday over Tawnia. She came across as being a lot more capable, and didn't whine like Tawnia did.

Neither. The show didn't need any more women than the ones who were being sweet talked by Face... They both had much to learn when it came to acting...

Okay, I didn't read through everybody else's responses, but I did notice quite a few vote Amy. Good. That's my vote too. Now, in reality there was no woman ON the A-Team, but Amy was the only one who belonged with them. Ironically she knew her place though the woman playing her didn't seem to. Not that I can blame Melinda. Dirk once asked WHY she would want to do what the guys did, who wouldn't? That's where all the fun was.

But I digress, Tawnia had no purpose and it's most evident by the people who say they prefer her simply because 'she's hot'. Window dressing, cheesecake, a seat cushion, little different from the women Face had on his arm every week, interchangeable, expendable, etc.

I prefer Amy. Ok, maybe Tawnia is prettier, (I don't mean that AAA is ugly :lol:) but this is her only value IMHO :P. She's just careerist. I don't like her especially in 'Curtain Call' - she's completely useless! Amy acted more like a man, that was fun :D, and she was, I think, emotionally closer with guys. It was really good scene in 'Children from Jamestown', when Hannibal, B.A. and Face cheered her up. They could just say :'you asked for it yourself'.

Yes, you're right. I prefered Amy too. And in "Children of Jamestown" that scene was very touching. Guys could leave Amy alone but they helped her and supported her. That was cute. Tawnia didn't fit to A-Team, she hadn't such a good contact with Face and Murdock, unlike Amy. :)

Oh boy. Honestly, the episodes were better without either character tacked on. Don't get me wrong, I really like Amy, and she meshed with the Team pretty well, but once they dropped the idea of the female reporter character, I didn't miss it. Amy fit better, especially when she was kind of an audience surrogate, and her friendships with Murdock and Face were cute. There were times, though, when Amy was introduced as a member of the A-Team, and I'm all, "No, no, she's not." With Tawnia I sometimes wondered if we were supposed not to like her. It's a shame because I think if the writers had gone a little further with Tawnia's ambition and sneakiness, she would have been more interesting. A little ambiguous but more interesting.
