Wil Wheaton agrees. He hated anytime Wesley showed up the adults. He thought it was a great way to make the audience hate his character.
I couldn't stand the Wesley that constantly saved the Enteprise that was in season one. But I really didn't mind him starting in season two when they finally tried to develop the character beyond super genius.
I feel that there might be some character envy going on from some of the more vocal fans. I mean Wes got to hang out with Picard and company, not to mention becoming the helmsman of the flagship during the first season! Talk about having everything handed to you!
