Pick a show, pick a character  
Give me a show, and I'll pick one character I'd remove from the cast and tell you why. Anyone of my flist, should have a good idea of the shows I watch. :)

ETA: Just an FYI, I'm not basing this on my like or dislike of actors or ships, but purely on the character.

Well, I would have gone with TBBT... but somehow I already know the answer to that one *gg*

So... I choose TVD :)

Matt. The Damon/Elena shipper in me who gets annoyed with the Damon/Bonnie shippers would say Bonnie (plus the actress annoys the everlovin' bejesus out of me), but, I genuinely like Bonnie for the most part. I also get WHY she's done many of the things she's done in the past that annoyed. But Matt? Ugh, he's a dick. I still think that if Elena crooked her finger, he'd come running. And I still haven't forgiven him for how he treated Caroline at the beginning of this season. She almost died, dude. (Well, taking into account simply what he believes happened.) SHE. ALMOST. DIED! Near-death can definitely cause changes in a person and that Matt was not being even remotely understanding of that so soon after the incident was pretty darn crappy, if ya ask me.

And then in the last episode, telling her that the ball was in her court to make things happen with them. HELLO?!?!? The ball has ALWAYS been in her court because you just stand there, moon over Elena, be all judgy and unaccepting of Caroline's awesome and well, are dicky!

So, yeah, Matt.

*Totally would be Leonard. Of course.*

Hmm. Is Chord Overstreet a regular cast member now? I think so. If yeah, then DEFINITELY Sam. He brings nothing to the table and never has. He sucks just about every story he's in, and helped land my beloved Quinn in storyline Siberia. I have issues with so many characters, it's not even funny, but he's the one who I have issues with and find completely useless as well.

If he's not a regular cast member, I'll go with Tina. Despite how caricature-y I find most characters on this show, all of them have had moments of real-ness for me. Except for Tina. She's just a walking caricature, and other than her duet with Mercedes on "Dog Days are Over," I've literally never enjoyed one single moment of her onscreen.

Ginny. Her point was to have a crush on Harry, nearly destroy the school, and then be Super!Duper!Awesome!Ginny. And she pretty much failed on all counts except for the second. I thought she was a flat, one-dimensional character no matter which incarnation J.K. Rowling wrote her in. And it's not even the Harry/Hermione shipper in me because while I'm not a Ron/Hermione fan AT ALL, I love Ron. And had Rowling paired Harry up with Luna, I could have dealt. Why? Because both Ron and Luna were well-conceived, well-written characters overall. Ginny? Hell to the no.

Arabian: David & Billie Dancingarabian on March 6th, 2011 05:12 pm (UTC)
I can't think of one. I'm thinking of main characters and I love them all. Even Moffat's characters: Eleven, Rory, and to a lesser degree, but still, Amy. Heck, despite hating some of Moffat's writing of River, by the end of series five, I love her too. The only one I don't love is Jack, and I was convinced of the importance of his presence in the final arc of series one, so even him, I can't list.

I may surprise you here, but Piz, not Duncan. As much as I despise Duncan, I blame that mostly on Teddy Dunn's portrayal. The character had AMAZING potential that was destroyed, yes, but it was there. There was no point to Piz at all. Despite the fact that Chris Lowell has a charm about him, and can act, he couldn't sell Piz. Piz was brought on (with a STUPID-ASS name! no less) purely as an upset to Logan/Veronica and so Kristen Bell could have a new pretty boy to play with that wasn't Jason Dohring, and that was crystal-clear every single moment he was on screen.

As much as I disliked Duncan, I DESPISED Piz. Duncan never made me stop watching the show. Piz did.

White Collar.

I wouldn't WANT to lose her, but I could see the show working without Elizabeth if I had to pick one character. I just adore Peter, Neal, Diana, Mozzie, so I can't choose any of them. But I wouldn't want to lose Elizabeth because she and Peter are so adorable, and I love her interactions with Neal and Mozzie too.

Yeah, yeah, I'm terrible, awful, how can I even go there, but, yeah, Casey. Sorry, while I think Adam Baldwin is a good actor, I've never loved him in either of his most famous stuff (this and Firefly). I could easily see Casey gone from the show and it not even remotely affect the fabric or even the relationships.

BILL!

Ahem. Yeah, Bill. Sookie broke up with him at the end of the last season, he can take off and go fly a kite and never show his face in Bon Temps again as far as I'm concerned. Stephen Moyer rubs me horribly the wrong way. I don't find Bill attractive. I don't find him likable. I hate his stupid accent. I hate his stupid two-faced lying lies that he apologizes for with the same tired "But ah luv ya, Sookeh!" He's the reason I stopped watching the show (after episode four -- before Eric even showed up!) originally. And if he never showed up again, I'd enjoy True Blood about a thousand times more than I do now.

So, yeah, definitely Bill.

Secret Diary maybe?

Stephanie. I always thought she should have been recurring in season one, and pretty much gone by series two. Now, her storyline is part of the suck of this series so far (God! I haven't even watched the last episode yet!).

Even though I can't stand Alyson Hannigan, and have issues with Lily, Lily works and is so a part of the fabric of the show, I can't see her not there. So, I'll have to go with Robin. Taking my shipper tendencies out of it, I've never actually been a huge fan of Cobie Smulders. I mean, I like her well enough, but Robin really only works for me on occasion or interacting with Barney.

Tara. I couldn't stand her. I liked nothing about her, and was thrilled when she left the show; it then allowed me to enjoy every second of it unabashedly. :)

I strongly agree-all the characters on Doctor Who are so Epic-ally Awesome that nobody could be yanked!

How about Moffat's Sherlock? Have you see it? It's Amazing!
