However she was a college professor - so it's a little too soon for us to believe her as this supreme badass on par with Michael. I would have loved it if they introduced it as the season went on - but to believe that out of the stretch is a bit hard when you're already confused whats different from the pilot movie.
My thoughts exactly. It's not a contradiction or impossible that she's suddenly able to kick some ass, but just a pretty unlikely stretch since there was no indication whatsoever that she had fighting skills in the backdoor pilot. On the same token, it is a bit of a tough pill to swallow that Sarah would go from a drunken, bar-fighting, slightly immature girl, to the head of F.L.A.G. overnight, too.
But I don't think her character's odd development is much of an issue in the series when compared to the other characters.
