It's not that odd if it's an ensemble show. I know lots of people who hate Jack in Lost, for example.
Some ensemble shows purposely make their lead hard to warm to. Best example from my favorites is Seth Bullock on Deadwood. Never liked him, & I don't really think I was supposed to

Re: Ever like a show but...

I hate all the characters in Game of Thrones, but I love the show. Bunch of pitiless murderers. But that's the point, no?

Also Homeland.

...Sawyer did nothing but crack jokes in seasons 4 and 5? Taking on the protective leader "Screw you and your reckless approach Jack" role was a huge new development from him.

As for the way that gender comes into it, well, I've never seen any of the angsty male heroes who had bad things happen to them called "whiny".
You've obviously never read a Smallville thread, then.

Yes. In the first two films Anakin was a hero.

Wasn't he a war criminal in the second one?

There's no Geneva Convention in the Star Wars universe, so labels such as war criminal do not apply.

That's like saying that mass murderers of the past were heroes because there was no Geneva Convention yet. Or that someone is a hero because he thinks he is.

Criminal maybe, but the masscre of the sand people wasn't really connected to any war...

I found Angel tolerable in its last year because of Spike and the whole Fred/Illyria thing, though Boreanaz/Angel was never other than a wooden bore.

I'm probably the only person on the planet who likes TOS in spite of Kirk. Yeah, weird and blasphemous and whatever, but true nonetheless.
I'm right there with you I never liked Kirk, Shatner is a terrible actor IMO.
Can't stand Kirk either. Don't mind Shatner as an actor though. Thought he did a pretty good job on Boston Legal.

As for Bones, there are times when I want to throw something at my tv when Brennan is acting too over the top (for lack of a better way of putting it).

Re: Ever like a show but...

It's pretty much half-and-half in terms of when I sympathize with Larry David on Curb Your Enthusiasm and when I find him to be an obnoxious schmuck. Of course, that's what makes the show tick. But I don't think I would like any real-life person with Larry's persona if I had to deal with him/her on a regular basis.

The thing about Larry David in Curb Your Enthusiasm is that he's acting like a complete asshole, but you still get his point.

This was my feeling as well. I've never liked Boreanaz in anything, and hubby wanted me to watch Angel with him. With Spike there, I was able to watch the last season and not be too put off.

Did you guys know that Nathan Fillion had actually auditioned for Angel way back in the early days of Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Apparently he didn't even get far enough into the process to meet Whedon, but man, I'd love to have seen his take on the character.

I hate Raymond of Everyone Loves Raymond when I love everyone else on the show. I have been watching it and I really hate him.
