Considering all the TV i've watched, I must say, Geoffrey from Game of Thrones is easily the most loathsome character i've experienced on a TV show. The guy who plays him does a great job. I don't think i've hated a character or wanted a character to perish more than his. A great credit to his acting job. :lol:

Anyone on Drop Dead Diva. Close second: that Ellis charater from Smash.

Meddlesome Mothers. I can't watch certain sitcoms like "Raymond" because of them.

I'll have to think about that. I've been watching TV since it's "Golden Age".

For me, it's a toss-up between two characters from 24.

He is very easy to hate. It is back in another month or so. :)

Why can I get to the "Adult's Only" area faster than I can get to the "ToDo" List?  DirecTV, that is messed up!!!

I know, I can't wait. It's easily my favorite show on TV. And also, i've never wanted so many people to die on one show before. :lol: None them are on Geoffery's level though. His mother is a very close 2nd though >.>

The second season opener was a lot better than most of the episodes in the first season but I'm not sure they can redeem this show. It started out so well and you'd think it would have been easy to figure out where to go with it, but most of the characters are unlikable and the dialogue has been really wooden.

I loved the season 2 opener, but as Stuart hints, they've had to make a lot of internal changes during the off season. The dialogue seems a bit more fluid and unrestrained, and the location shots have finally moved out of that stupid sound stage.

If you watched the first season, you'll first see the tinkering evident in cast changes and more focused on songs. I'm looking forward to more pleasant surprises.

Like I said, I loved it, but it's a work-in-progress.

Not to turn this into a Smash thread, but the thing I like about the show is there's usually one production number per episode that makes me feel glad I watched, no matter how the rest of it was. Last week it was Ivy's big song in the second hour. Megan Hilty is very talented, IMO.

The Phil Dunphy character on Modern Family. I just hate the awkward comedy thing.
Everybody loves the show, and maybe the other characters are good, but this guy ruins it for me.

Also, any Kardashian, anyone from "Jersy Shore" (are they the same?) and any of the "Housewives of Anywhere", but who am I to judge since I don't watch any of that sort of trash. :nono2:

Oh yeah, J.R. from "Dallas", but only by reputation since I've never watched that, either.

I hated this character so much I can't stand the actress in anything else I've seen her in.
I do, I offer a complete and utter retraction. The imputation was totally without basis in fact, and was in no way fair comment, and was motivated purely by malice, and I deeply regret any distress that my comments may have caused you, or your family, and I hereby undertake not to repeat any such slander at any time in the future.
