This article suggests their 5 ways to improve V for the next season. There is a nice mention of Elizabeth and Erica that I think it worths to post.
This is not meant as indictment of Elizabeth Mitchell or her character, FBI Agent Erica Evans. Mitchell is a talented actress and Erica is an interesting character.
But is it too much to ask for a male character on the show to have half the balls that’s she’s got?
That is a huge problem with this show. It has a lot of strong female roles, but there’s no balance with the males. Do Father Jack (Joel Gretsch) or Ryan Nichols (Morris Chestnut) have anywhere near the narrative pull that Erica receives in the story?
No, of course not.
And apparently, the producers must have realized that too, otherwise they wouldn’t have introduced Charles Mesure as Kyle Hobbes midway through the first season. As a mercenary, Hobbes at least adds some military credibility to the LA resistance team. But he’s definitely not a leading character at this point. And it would take a lot of development to get him on the same level as Erica in the story.
