First: Fuck yes. While I can appreciate that some women like to be hugged when they cry, and that men often feel like they need to do something to help, sometimes you just want to have your rage or pain and work through it yourself.
Second: Before the show actually aired and I heard Olivia Munn had been cast, I was not happy with the choice. I only really knew her from AOTS, and thought it was a poor casting decision.
That said, for me, Sloan has been one of the most consistent and relatable characters in the series. She’s intelligent and has strength in her convictions, but sometimes also insecure and critical of herself - I think she might be the most well balanced of all the characters, and I think a lot of that comes from Munn’s portrayal.
TL;DR: If I’m crying and want a hug, I’ll hug you/Olivia Munn is awesome and nobody should be judged on future performance by a job on G4.
