Never liked Sinclair on Babylon 5, but Sheridan was tolerable.
I LOVED Sinclair. Thought Michael O'Hare bought a real gravitas to the show. Boxleitner's opening narration was amateurish compared to O'Hare's moody first season intro. Also preferred Sinclair's Battle of the Line backstory and eventual fate as Valen. A really distinct, memorable character arc.

One of my favourite lead characters in a TV show. Sheridan was good too but a bit too chipper for me. O'Hare is exactly the type I'd expect to be commanding a space station. Sorely missed and underrated actor.

Lost. I liked the show but hated Jack and most of the other main characters. Tertiary characters like Daniel Faraday were much more interesting.

I Love Voyager but I don't watch too many episodes with 7 of 9. Sorry, but I have know way too many cold, bitchy emotionless women in my life I don't want to watch them on TV.

I'm right there with you I never liked Kirk, Shatner is a terrible actor IMO.

I forgot to agree with Kirk. Brennan is getting there. (Actually she got there a couple seasons ago and I'm in denial. )

I LOVED--like fanatically-obsessed-crazy loved--LOST, but Jack & Kate were the most boring characters of the bunch. I liked Locke, Sayid, Ben, Hurley, etc, but the Jack/Kate/Sawyer triangle was the most annoying, dull and downright frustrating part of the show. Sawyer at least had some very funny lines. Jack & Kate---no. They were just annoying and whiny.

I uh, really liked Jack for his philosophical debates with Locke and how the show unravelled him over the years. My favourite Lost episode is the Season 3 finale and it's great seeing him as this drug addicted loser post-Island.

Sawyer on the other hand, completes his entire character arc 13 episodes in to Season 1 and does nothing but crack one-liners for the next 5 years. No idea how anybody could find his story more interesting.

Lily, on HIMYM, ruins the show for me. Made more so by the fact she's based on a real person.
Lily is the sort of manipulative bitch I would never want to be around.

Oh, thank you. I'm glad someone out there agrees with me - on both counts.

I'll never understand the Jack / Kate loathing, though. Just as I'll never understand why people like a cretinous, selfish, arsehole of a character like Sawyer. But to each their own.

I also preferred Sinclair. Michael O'Hare had no baggage as an actor the way Boxleitner did, and he helped usher us into the B5 world without thinking of Tron or Scarecrow & Mrs. King.

Then again, B5 kind of became known for taking typecast actors and giving them something new to do, like Walter Koenig with Bester.

Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior... I liked all the supporting characters but thought that Forest Whitaker's character was awful.

I mostly hate him because he's just a rude person.
Some crazy stuff happens, his friends ask him what's going on and what does he say? "It's not important."
Every. Single. Time.
As if his companions weren't worth discussing important island mythology stuff with. It baffles me that they actually put up with that behavior for 5 seasons.
His obsession with wanting to fix everything on his own didn't help much either.

That wasn't really Jack being rude. That was him doing what every single character on the island did: avoid having conversations that would impart actual, useful,information and clear up various mysteries and misunderstandings that the producers wanted to stretch out until the finale.

Re: Ever like a show but...

No, it still is rude behavior. Yeah, a lot of characters did that, which is why i initially said I hate most of the main characters on that show. But Jack definitely takes the cake in that.
