I'm really hoping that the bump in ratings bodes well for renewal!
I think that Dana Delaney is just a sexy, attractive woman, so there's really no way to NOT have her be that on this show. I like that they portray her as desirable and sexy and she's not 25. At 44,Jeri Ryan is 12 years younger than DD, but she's not considered young by Hollywood standards either. I love that this show has two sexy, beautiful and (most importantly) smart female characters who are "older" than what we usually see on TV. On many shows, these two characters would be 35, tops.
