I'm pretty sure mike4dsp was referring to the one black character- the cop (what was her name???) - not Megan Rath
Interestingly enough I spent hours trying to find Megan's ethnicity last year and only came across the point that "she is Canadian and therefore her ethnicity is irrelevant." (That came off a forum somewhere). I personally don't feel like they are ignoring her character's ethnicity -- I know plenty of ethnic looking people who's backgrounds are just as American (or Canadian in Megan Rath's case) as anyone else I know, they just happen to be a different color and have different heritage.
I agree with the poster who said that I'm not as interested in her having an ethnic story line as her general upbringing. I was interested to see her mom and was hoping we would learn more about Sally from her. Even Sally's mom, while ethnic, was very "white bread American"...obviously they are several generations in America and have probably (sadly) lost some of their ethnic uniqueness.
Oh yes Cecil or is it Cecilia, I forgot about her. I was almost bummed that she didn't last long. She was badass.
The episode with Sally's mom is so far my least favorite. Mostly for the stupid illusion Bishop thing more than the mom but the mom thing was kind of weird and didn't seem to have a point except maybe to show Sally even more how unfulfilled she is.
And people I know this may seem a bit nit picky but since this almost always happens with my name I have a thing about it. She spells it Meaghan.
