I'm not sure who's worse, Scott or Steve. One is a big mean bully and the other is a whiny little girl.



I'm assuming you're referring to Steve Riedel - I agree ... and his daughter Emily is just as much a loser as he is. But, while I don't like them, I think Scott is the bigger loser idiot with a penchant for bullying and drunken violence.

I get it now, just watched the last episode. What a classy guy Scott is, drink all day while complaining he doesn't have any money.

I give Zeke credit, he's a little strange but a tough kid with a good work ethic. It's too bad he has the hots for Emily and can't cut her loose. He would make a ton more money if he had another diver and not dead weight.

I resent that!

I had an uncredited role on the show 2 different times.


Ok, anyone credited on Drop Dead Diva.

Speaking of Divas, I've been peeking at 'Double Divas', but it's pretty much a bust. I can't handle it so I am barely hanging in there. 'Twin Peaks' would've been a more fitting title, but that was already taken. IMO, the "Divas" should be nipped in the bud!

:sure:

My wife will not watch any older shows of "The Office" because of Michael Scott.


Man, those were the good ole days of the office... He was supposed to make you uncomfortable. That was the point. Now, when Robert California was on there, I couldn't stand him.

Zeke's "hots" for Emily has been a multi-seasonal bore. I finally had to give up on him doing anything rational except look for gold. His work ethic is an obsession with him that seems to make him miss the forest for the romantic trees - if you get my drift?

Scott's a piece of work, alright. He' also has a multi-seasonal history full of self-pity, and abusive behavior that he gladly parses out. He's a true paranoid who blames everybody else for his failures and then drunkenly goes out and practices his boxing on unsuspecting storefronts. It would serve him right to break a hand some day.

He's the type you really love to loath.

Now that I've given it some thought I'd have to say the character "Marty Winston" played by actor Dallas Roberts in the Law & Order episode "By Perjury".

Flo from Progressive!


Dr. Zachary Smith in Lost In Space.


Those two plus Jay Leno, seriously, something about that guy.

Many of the other shows mentioned above and all so-called 'reality' shows I don't watch as I find the shows to be loathed in their entirety so can't even name any characters in the show. Just watching the ads for many shows is often more than I can stomach.

Jay? Not honest Jay... Ah well, I understand the concept. :)

As for the commercials... both DIRECTV and DISH have ways to minimize the commercials... (Sorry, I just couldn't resist.) :) :)

(And I don't watch any of the reality shows either.) :)

Peace,

I like to watch shows that hold my interest - whether scripted or reality. If they fail (and many do), I watch something else. The one thing I don't do is to criticize a show or a genre I don't (or haven't) watched.

Best villian? Ben from Lost. Michael Emerson great there, great on Person of Interest.

"Most loathsome"? Anyone with the last name Kardashian or found standing next to any Kardashian.

"Annoying?" Flo. I'd probably still do her. Enthusiasm is sexy, which is why Ellie Kemper does it for me. OK, there are other reasons too.

Also annoying, the Dr. Who from a couple seasons ago. I could not reach for the remote fast enough. He also wins for least believable portrayal. If I met him, I'd have to punch him.

and there you go, Fluffybear... While agree with the above sentiment, I found myself sitting just to the right of a Kardashian at a deli in Beverly Hills about a year ago. So I suppose I make the list

Anyone on Drop Dead Diva.


WOW!! I LOVED that show... so disappointed they cancelled it.

--
This reminds me of Lana from Smallville. Literally, everytime she came into a scene me (and my friends) groaned, because her appearances became like a void sucking hole of angst. Then, there is a difference between hating a character because of the character and hating one because of how it's written/acted.


Uh... yeah, I'm going to have to agree with KK's Lana. I was okay with her at first, but a few seasons in and I too wanted to groan every time she was on screen.

If it's Kim, you automatically make the list...

If it's Rob, you're excused...

If it's the Jenner girl(s?), you may be excused...


Otherwise, I may have to agree with Fluffybear... ;)

That you even know their names? Just a little sad. :eek2:

!rolling


Sadly, I do know most of their names. :(

I know Kim's... because let's face it, unless you've been living under a rock, you've unfortunately heard of her.

I know Rob's because he was on "Dancing With The Stars" a few years back, and while I expected him to be that years' Bristol Palin, I was actually pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed him on the show... both for a decent amount of talent and surprisingly, his personality.

I know Khloe's because I watch "The X Factor", and she co-hosted this past season, plus...

I cannot comment on how many times I've seen Khloe's name mentioned alongside her sister Kourtney, whose name I only know from scrolling through the GUIDE and seeing "Khloe and Kourtney Do Dallas" or Miami, or wherever.

I believe there are two younger girls... Kylie and Kendall (I believe).... though they aren't technically Kardashians. One of them had a brief appearance on an episode of "Hawaii 5-0".

Kourtney, Kylie, and Kendall are fairly unknown to me. I wouldn't know Kourtney if I walked past her on the street, and I'm hesitant to believe I would know Kylie and Kendall either.
