    I don't think it can be cured. Just curious.

    If there's someone I consider to be annoying due to their voice or mannerisms (like a wealthy, opinionated former brother-in-law who considered himself the final authority on everything), I do my best to stay away from them.

    If Wil bothers you that much, I'd say don't go to see him at conventions, book signings, and avoid his tv, film, and internet appearances. Spend all the money you want on his books though, he'll appreciate that.

    Yes because that's the way they wanted him to be - condescending and degrading to his mother who had to put up with his 'bad attitude' relatively speaking but he was depressing
    with a superiority complex. Let's see. Who else on this board is like that? Mmn.

    Will Wheaton looks like Will Riker these days, especially with that beard. He is going to play Riker in the TNG reboot!

    He does not have the swagger, nor the charisma.

    Nope, he sounds just like a teenager. They can't help it.

    I think he's annoying now, looking back at the series. He's supposed to be this know-it-all genius kid, which is annoying to pretty much everyone except his mom.

    So Gene wanted him to be annoying when he wrote the script/concept? They have to be tolerable teenage geniuses on tv.

    No, he just was. But doomed to be so.

    But does the OP mean then or now as an adult?

    Yeah, I should have asked that in my first response. Considering he spelled Wil's name wrong, maybe he meant Wesley.

    While I have problems with the way his character was written, I've never had a problem with his speaking voice. It's really just normal/average.

    Perhaps if Wesley were a French teenage, who spoke with a British accent, you'd like his voice better.

    When Picard became a kid for an episode he was so much more awesome than Wesley.
