Found the whole storyline ridiculous, but that's fairly standard for SW. I'm just not feeling the love for the Jack character in combination with Leo and Nikki. His Irishness and his cage-fighting just make the other two look like effete middle-class English fops.
The Clarissa character is interesting, but they need to give her more than four lines per episode if she's not just to be a token disabled person.
I agree with you about Jack. But as for Clarissa, why should she get more lines just because she is disabled? From what we have seen so far she is played by a perfectly decent actress who is entitled to be cast on merit, not as a token disabled person.
