Whether it be poor character development or just terrible acting, here are a few of the worst characters in some of our favorite television shows.
1. SCREECH – ‘SAVED BY THE BELL’
He never seemed to fit in with Zack Morris and A.C. Slater, and none of the girls ever really took him seriously. In most cases, we all tend to root for the geeky underdog, but when it came to Screech, his character was so unlikable, we sort of hoped he would get transferred from Bayside High.
2. JACK – ‘LOST’
He was a bit stubborn, with a self-centered arrogance that made us want to jump through our television screens and ring his neck. Viewers had absolutely no sympathy for him, and the only good thing about this show coming to an end was the thought of never having to see Jack ever
3. PIPER – ‘ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK’
When it comes to whiny and spoiled characters on great Tv shows, we can’t forget Piper of Orange Is the New Black. When Piper’s going on and on and playing the victim, we all simultaneously tune her out. She’s so “gangsta,” and annoying, and intolerable. Can her character just get shanked already? Enough is enough.
4. APRIL ‘GILMORE GIRLS’
Talk about a television series buzzkill! April was introduced at a time when viewers were banking on Luke Danes and Lorelai Gilmore finally riding off into the sunset. But then, here comes April as the child Luke fathered many years ago. She just swooped in and shattered all of our hopes and dreams. Thanks a lot, kid!
5. ERIC FORMAN – ‘THAT 70’S SHOW’
Eric’s character definitely rubbed us the wrong way. He was the square of the entire crew – a bit nerdy, a bit shy, and definitely annoying. And then, how could we forget when he left our beloved Donna Pinciotti at the altar? What a major douche. We can’t be the only ones who breathed a sigh of relief when he finally left the show.
6. ROSS GELLER – ‘FRIENDS’
Ross Geller was a part of one of television’s most-loved shows, Friends, but that doesn’t mean we were in love with this character. He’s the whiny brother who’s always complaining about everything. We still don’t know what Rachel Green saw in him, and we’ll never forgive him for refusing to read the letter she poured her heart and soul into. Ugh!
7. TED – ‘HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER’
He was whiny, he complained all the time, he expected everyone to throw him a pity party, and yet, he’s life really wasn’t that bad. He had a great job, he had a nice apartment, and he dated beautiful woman. It felt like he complained just to hear the sound of his own voice!
8. SKYLER WHITE – ‘BREAKING BAD’
Even though we should’ve been rooting for Skyler’s character, our allegiance was with her drug-dealing husband, Walter White. Our hate for Skyler got so bad that we sometimes wished she would’ve went through with the divorce in season three and left the show for good.
9. RACHEL BERRY – ‘GLEE’
She’s fun, she’s spunky, and she’s preppy, but aside from all of her favorable traits, she’s also downright awful. Her uptight character was like a thorn in our behinds. She never had the opportunity to grow and flourish because she was pigeoned holed into the neurotic, annoying mess that graced our television screens every week.
10. MARISSA COOPER – ‘THE OC’
Her whiny, monotone voice was unbearable, and the way she treated her boyfriend was reprehensible. Marissa only give a damn about herself. It wasn’t until she was killed off from the series in season three when we finally found some relief from this narcissistic brat.
