SOME TV CHARACTERS I SIMPLY DON’T CARE FOR: PART ONE

by 

When we watch a TV show, or even a film, I would hope that well over 90 percent of us want to like the characters we’re about to meet. I know I want to like the people inside the world I’m about to enter. However, as sometimes happens, that doesn’t always hold true. Sometimes we simply don’t like the attitude of the character or something about them rubs us the wrong way. This is certainly true for me, which is why it’s time to talk characters I don’t care for.

These aren’t necessarily villainous characters, which we all know I do dislike, but still, they’re just some of the characters whom I have never taken a liking to. Some of these may surprise you if you’ve been here for a along time, and some won’t. Mainly because some I’ve already talked about not caring for, but whatever the case, let’s dive in and meet from of these people.


CHARACTERS I DON’T CARE FOR


CHARMAINE

from Virgin River

Seems like some viewers do like Charmaine, and have sympathy for her. I just cannot. There’s a moment where I’ll stop and think, “ok, maybe,” but then she goes and does something cruel and manipulative and I just… can’t.

CHRISTOPHER

from Gilmore Girls

I mean, does anyone like him? I’m guessing some probably do. I however am not one of those people. He’s just not a character I like and I think he knows how to get to Lorelai and even when he’s asked by his daughter to leave her alone and to respect where she’s at, he doesn’t. And also, this doesn’t mean Lorelai is excused from how she acts with him either. characters i don’t care for

IRENE FORSYTE

from The Forsyte Saga

I have sympathy for Irene given what her husband eventually does, but even prior to this, there’s just something about her I don’t care for. She comes across as a bit manipulative (which is in a kind of passive aggressive manner) and for this reason, I don’t like her character.

SOAMES FORSYTE

from The Forsyte Saga

If I had to guess, I’d say this character had an upbringing that did him no favors. That said, he’s still unlikable, especially, in the latter half of the story given what he ultimately does.

ZOE KESSLER

from The Border

Adding Zoe’s name may be a tiny bit unfair. It’s been a minute since I binged this entire Canadian crime drama, but I know there was a drama, like this, with a teenage daughter who REALLY bugged me. Feels like it was Zoe, but I could be wrong.

JULIA OGDON

from Murdoch Mysteries

To be fair, Julia is a character I go back and forth on liking. In the beginning I liked her pretty much all the time. But as the seasons have gone on, I’ve realized more and more that she’s rather a problematic character. I mean, I do like her in some ways, but in others, she tends to be sort of a manipulator. I also have problems with how she treats William in one example of their marriage when she once nearly did the exact same thing. characters I don’t care for

LOUIS LITT

from Suits

This is one of those characters that there are brief moments I kind of like him, but then seconds later or in the following episode I don’t. I cannot say why, but I just don’t care for him.

BECKY SHARPE

from Vanity Fair

I watched the Reese Witherspoon feature of this and also the more recent Prime series. While there’s shining, brief moments where I do kind of like the character, overall, she’s not a noble on.

IRIS WEST

from The Flash

Never been able to put my finger on the “why” of this character, but I’ve never really cared for her. I watched the first two seasons I think, and never warmed to Iris. Not sure why, but part of it may be that I never felt, on her part, any kind of real connection for her with Barry, and maybe I felt like she abused that knowing how he cared for her? I don’t know. If you like Iris (and I know SO many fans do), what do you love about her? characters I don’t care for

GOERGE WARLEGGAN

from Poldark

Honestly I don’t remember many specifics about this character, but do know I didn’t care for him. I think I only watched two seasons of this maybe so whether he changes or not, I don’t know. But tell me, did you like him?

CATHERINE WILLOWS

from CSI

There’s one moment where Catherine is called “darling” or “sweetheart” or something, and she corrects the dude. When he apologizes, she says, don’t apologize, just get it right next time. I think that’s a fabulous moment and how more people should treat those types of scenarios (provided they aren’t ongoing). However, Catherine is one of those kinds of wishy-washy characters that I, ultimately, don’t care for. She does good things, but something about her just doesn’t work as a favorite.
