a cast of characters for whom my feelings range from "I don't care about these people" to "FUCK THAT GUY"

Any human male who can watch Firefly and not care (at the very least) about Kaylee is clearly already dead.

Not just human males.  She's just so sweet and innocent and adorable that you can't deny that adorkableness.

Millefeuille is clearly not drunk enough. Because when she was drunk she wanted everyone to look at her butt.

In those cases her butt was still covered by her pants, though.

According to this getting new femur should have taken only few days.

So can we say that last 15 months of comic happened only in like a week or two?

Well, I think panel 2 pretty much torpedoes the notion of Brun being ace.

I have never watched Firefly, belonging to that rare breed of people entirely uninterested in all things Joss Whedon.

However, I do dream of the day when US producers learn that there is such a thing as too much of a good thing - or, to put it another way, you should always leave your audience wanting more.

Yes, Millie, they all admire you, even if it's only as a job well done!

Right now, Sam finds adult sexuality an intensely funny thing to watch. In some ways, I'm looking forward to the first time she sees a guy or girl whose physical attributes are hypnotic to her, just to that Faye and Bubbles can mock her in return!

For someone who loves playing romatic simulation games, Millie is missing some choice opening lines.
She didn't ask Brun about her feelings towards her, didn't ask her about "other options and techniques?", and Brun has complimented her butt twice.

Yeah, there's something off about today's comic. Like, I felt as though Jeph was playing it for laughs, but what they were doing was downright exploitative. If that's the way they treat all their customers, they deserve to fail.

Being that Sam acts likes shes 12 I'd sooner not have anything to do with her and sexuality in this comic for a good long while

As of Strip 3161, Sam is 14 years old, just so you know. Still rather young but old enough that the first crush may come crashing through the window at any second!

Sure shes 14 but she acts like a 12 year old but be that as it may I'd still rather not see this author attempt that type of story line, it's one thing to get it wrong with adults (today's strip for example) but its quite another when it involves a young teenager

Imagine if this was at a doctors surgery or something, wouldn't be quite as cute or as funny as the author clearly thinks it is
What makes you think the author, who has shown years of interpersonal sensitivity, thinks it's not horrid? I think it's an excellent page, in part for that very fact, that what's happening is horrid, simply because Union Robotics didn't think that part through. That's horrid, but the question is, how does Union Robotics respond, when someone tries to let them know? It might be an honest mistake, but depending on the response, that honest mistake becomes willful negligence. The proper response would be to listen to the person's concerns, understand them, figure out the different ways to change, and then implement the best change, to most improve the service.
In our world, that rarely happens---first they'd dismiss the person's concerns, or bullshit their way out of it; then, if the person persists, insisting the concern be heard, they actively play stupid, intentionally misinterpreting what the person is describing, even going so far as pretending the person said something else entirely. In a rare case, that it gets past this stage---now they know the concern. Sometimes, they still do nothing. More often, they try to put some temporary fix, that's not a solution, and the problem reoccurs. If they do try to solve the problem, often, their solution is nowhere near the best---sometimes, worse than what was before. The only time they'd implement anything near the optimal solution, was when I spelled it out for them.
I'd also like you to inspect the documents your doctor has you complete. You might find some dangerous clauses you're `agreeing' or highly sensitive data you're volunteering, unnecessary for treatment.

The author commentary around the strip, for starters.

"r o b o t  b u t t s"
"nice"

Also, see that angling of their heads and their dazed expressions? He's played that joke of this cast admiring butts before.

He also provided some unsubtle fan service in panel 2.

Nah, I don't see any evidence that it occurred to him.

I don't think that's enough evidence that it hasn't occurred to him. For one, it looks like irony, and a potent set-up for the issue. Bubbles & Faye, focused on the object of their work, forget to consider the patient's comfort---much like how many hospitals are efficient at just the medicine part, disregarding the patient's mental well-being. And then Brun, clueless, is enthusiastically reaffirming their objectification, exacerbating Millefeuille's discomfort. Sam is actually trying to be halfway decent---leering away while others are ogling (tangential: she's becoming a fine young woman, in this frame), stifling the snigger from the ``nice ass'' comment---but it seems mainly due to taboo, instead of consideration.
That would suggest that it's too early to know---the offending situation has happened, we'll see what happens next---if it's addressed, how it's addressed---or, by the emphasis on them disregarding Millefeuille's mental well-being, and her mental (un)well-being from their actions, one might suggest that it did, in fact, occur to him.

About JJ not seeing the problem with his characters' behavior, I will suspend my judgment until the end of the arc.

On another level, that's the first time we see Brun showing some interest for anything... let's say... another person's body related.

Um. Speaking as someone who only discovered sexuality at age 46... it was far more hilarious and disconcerting than you can imagine. Especially since I discovered I was straight, when I had assumed that if it happened, I'd  be Lez.

I'd observed sexual attraction before then of course. I knew it existed. I knew that it had made rational human beings do things that could and sometimes did get them killed. It was obviously powerful JuJu. I just didnt understand it, nor could imagine myself experiencing it.

I would also like them to learn something that seems like the opposite on first glance but is actually the same: its OK for a long running show to change.
Specifically Im thinking of Stargate SG-1 here, and the Ori arc. Like, humanity finally wiped out the big bads, scored alliances with the big goods, and then suddenly even bigger, badder bads appear. We did not need Goauld 2.0 guys. Seriously, even down to having hilariously OP ships and their troops using staff weapons.
There were a few hundred plot arcs that could have been followed up on and were even planned, like the revelation of the well, everything, to the general public on Earth, but nope, plot reset, back to day one but turned up to eleven.

I didn't take panel 2 and Brun as anything other than she's looking at what everyone else is looking at.  Sam is trying to figure out what's going on, which is why she's looking at Faye.  Brun could be thinking about how she slept on that butt and it was quite comfortable.

Brun in panel 3 then speaks her truth, though she's most likely missed the whole social context, which is what makes Millie uncomfortable at hearing what she already thinks everyone else is thinking.  Sam is snickering at Millie's discomfort after Millie's response.

Or at least that's the way I'm reading it.  We shall see where it goes.

On Sam, I'm thinking she's going to have a sudden and deeply weird experience wherein she recognizes sex exists and she wants to be in on the party.  Now, whether it's with Winslow or Fairy is my only question.

I agree with you here. Brun slept on Millie's butt but hasn't seen it and doesn't know how to react to seeing it so it to me isn't sexual: just genuine interest in it for what it is- her friend's butt. Brun's reaction is one of simply restating what the others had said but not getting the shock or obvious discomfort of Millie, which is simply Brun being Brun and her unfortunate autism causing her to unintentionally put her foot in her mouth when anyone else would have reassured Millie in a different way

And I agree with others here, it was completely unprofessional by the two to ogle a repeat paying customer who has referred more business to them than anyone else. There is no excuse, they were there when the implant were put in so they have no reason to ogle Millie. If they can't shelve their sexual sides then they're in the wrong business because they are not only sexually harassing customers- they might even be breaking the law.

True, it might.

It might also suggest it occurred to him later.

Also, is it just me or does Brun's skin tone almost look gray compared to Sam's?
I think that's just shadow.

Comic's up.

I'm with you Brun, this IS fascinating. Wish I was there to watch it!

This response from our resident clockwork fan makes total sense.
Also, I can see why Faye warned Brun. Them's some muscle lookin' muscles.

I think this is the most emotion we've ever seen Brun show.

Brun may have just found a new career.

I wish a human hip replacement was that easy. Relevant to me because I will probably need one in a few years.

But yeah, Jeph has gotten one thing right that most sci-fi tv “androids” get wrong: to look at all human-like, the android body would need something that moves the same way muscle does. The way Star Trek showed Data having circuits and wires just below the skin wouldn’t look anything like a human body.

Brun is feeling an intimate emotional connection, possibly for the first time. And on a subcutaneous level! That's some serious bonding stuff.

I hereby christen thee the good ship Brunfeuille!

Bruille.

No, on second thought, let’s not go there. ‘Tis a silly place.

According to this getting new femur should have taken only few days.

So can we say that last 15 months of comic happened only in like a week or two?
In comic 4411 Millefeuille says "It's finallly here?" - to me this indicates that it took rather longer than expected.

Also, I just noticed the title of that comic is "It Took A While". So presumably it has been quite a bit longer than initially expected.

I do believe this may be the start of a new hyperfixation.

I'd also being willing to lay odds that either Renee or Elliot are one of the humans who puke at the sight of robot innards.

We've already seen Brun's fascination with intricate machinery through her love for clocks. Does she now see her new friend as an ultimate expression of the Clockmakers art? Does she fall even harder for Millefeuille, not in spite of her being an AI, but in fact because she is one. This also ties in to the theme that humans (e.g. Clinton & Elliot) are confusing and their behaviour doesn't follow predictable rules. For Brun, I think the mechanical part of Mille's nature makes her more attractive. Lots to think about from one frame.

For the moment, I'm reading this as an admiration for the mechanics, rather than anything romantic, as well, really.

The ship may be on the stocks, but it might be a little early to launch, still. Besides, what kind of relationship could ensue if I like how you are mechanically put together, and want to literally take you apart and put you back together again is about the level of the most amazing experience for one of the partners? If I were were Millefeuille, that might be a slightly disconcerting, if not downright creepy, idea.
