I think you could argue that it doesn't matter how the characters or actors see themselves; it's how the audience does. That's the "fun" thing about race- sometimes you're pulled into it whether you want to be or not because ethnic/racial identity can't just be self-defined (imho, of course, and in my life experience).

Which I guess means Rafe/Sami and Gabi/Nick could go either way in terms of being described as interracial. By not mentioning it as an example, the author of the article helps define it as not being one, in a way. But if a viewer sees it that way then they are. Although...maybe a better sign of progress would be to say that the writers saw them that way but nobody picked up on it as such, because it's just that well integrated a show. I like that thought a little better than Cameron/Abby as some kind of icon of progress.

JMHO.

And I totally want to see more crazy on the show.
Remember that old Seinfeld show when Elaine was dating this guy and she wasn't sure he if was black or white and kept testing him with stuff to find out? :D
