True. They just didn't make the best android; one who assumes without solid evidence...that's an android's weakness.

Gus asks him how long, it was a year as well. It may have been a year in some odd months, but that doesn't negate the point I made.

That is a bit much. Jim only forced Aurora to wake up, he didn't force her to do anything else.

Just what every guy needs before waking up someone! The beard was clearly the last straw.

Speaking of people who can live without company for long periods of time, take author Henry David Thoreau. He went into the woods and lived in a cabin on his own, isolated, for over 2 years and wrote a book. He actually came out a more spiritual and well rounded person by his experiences. Now if it was 2 years and 3 weeks tho....who knows!

Yeah, that scene in which Jim had intercourse with Aurora against her will was horrifying.

Oh wait, that never happened.

I'd argue that making yourself the "last man on earth," and lying to somebody about something so massive, because you want companionship, is pretty rapey. He didn't "force" himself on her physically, but he definitely set up the situation where she would sleep with him, under false pretenses.

women who've been gaslighted in abusive relationships "consent" to sex all the time.

You seclude yourself for an entire year and see how well you're doing.

I swear. People think they're above everything just because they're tapping away behind a keyboard.

Yeah, it was about one year and three weeks with a few months of him debating whether or not he should wake Aurora up. Then about a year after waking Aurora up to when they found out about the ship about to explode. Aurora found out the truth of what Jim did and spent a few months hating him before the revelation of the ship's damage.
Looking forward to the (UV or iTunes HD):

It's rape to cause someone to sleep with you under false pretenses? We need to build more jails....

just because I recognize that if I were put in a similar situation I might do something equally morally reprehensible doesn't make that thing any less morally reprehensible.

Although a year without another human being sounds pretty damn rosey to me.

He was making a joke, so no need for the snark there man.

Furthermore, I gave my own example as well as a documented one. Not every single person needs constant human interaction.

He didn't set that up. Aurora could of just as easily not fallen for Jim and woke some other guy up, he picked her because he fully believed they would of liked each other with all of his research on her life. He wasn't wrong.

Jim never once pretended to be someone he wasn't (even told her straight up that he was a mechanic and he was a basic passenger), he never once forced Aurora to love him either.

In extreme circumstances? Yes. If a person has amnesia and another person convinces them that they're spouses, that would absolutely be rape.

And I didn't say it was rape, I said it was rapey. I don't think it necessarily crosses the line, but I think it edges up to it and looks over longingly.
