Amos (aka, What's his name or Tyrol with Anger Issues as I call him) mentioned in a recent episode that his parents died and he was raised by someone named Lydia.  Other than issues related to that, I think he has some other kind of mental issues.  As for Holden, its clear that he wants to be an archetypical Heroic Good GuyTM though whether that's due to guilt or just wanting to be better I'm not sure.

Avasarala has changed from being a hawkish hardass to being the voice of reason in the UN governmental meetings since learning about the conspiracy at the end of the first season.

And as a side note, season 1 did seem to focus a lot on Miller, character wise anyway.  Maybe they'll focus on someone else with the rest of this season.

So I'm caught up finally on season one. I have mixed feelings. I like the overall world building of the show and the lengths they go to get the science right...or at least as close to right as possible. On the other hand, I don't care about any of the characters. Its not that I dislike them, just none of them are interesting. They're all the most boring lifeless people I've ever seen.

Miller is about the only exception and that's only partly because I like Thomas Jane.
Maybe that's supposed to be the point. These are just ordinary people, but even for ordinary people that have been swept up in something bigger than any of them, I don't particularly care about them. None of them have anything one thing that makes me want to know more about them or invest any time in them. Is Naomi OPA? I'm not sure, maybe...but it doesn't seem to matter. Is what's his name something more than just a thug with something to prove beyond loyalty to Naomi? Doesn't seem that way. Is Holden looking to redeem himself for past guilt or live up to some unfulfilled potential. Not sure.

Hopefully season two fleshes this out more and builds more upon these characters.

I was out earlier and I did just that today.

Re: the AP calculus one.  I'm reminded of a Robot Chicken sketch where a teacher explains imaginary numbers to the class and all but one of the students' heads' explode.  After a moment the remaining student says, "Now I get it." and then his head explodes.
But Imaginary numbers are so easy though.

One could say the same about the double standard you apparently have.

Excellent attitude for a Star Trek fan to have.
