Characters you just want to punch (and not just from comics)
« on: March 24, 2017, 03:14:51 AM »

This isn't really for the irredeemably evil characters that you want to kill and send to Hell for all their crimes.  This is for characters that just rub you the wrong way.  They can even be good guys.  But something about them--and maybe you don't even know what, exactly--gets under your skin so much.

Who would you list?

   All four main characters on Seinfeld. I hate them all and I hate the show. I also realize that it's seen as one of the funniest of all time.
   Almost every episode is either one of them wanting some ridiculous advantage over everyone else or being outraged that someone else has an advantage they don't.
   Sleeping at work
   Handicapped toilet stall
   Parking space
   Not getting credit for tipping or buying someone's lunch
    Whatever
   The whole show is based on selfishness and jealousy.

Yeah, the point of Seinfeld was that they were all complete assholes.  They were never meant to be likeable.

  I get that I'm in the minority, and most people think the show is genius, but I want to beat the characters to death with a tire iron.

Not saying you're wrong in feeling that way, i know a lot of folks in RL who had the same reaction to the characters, for the same reasons as you.
I dont think theyd be fun to hang with long term, thats for sure. As "The Watcher", though, i enjoyed their antics.

Phoebe from Friends ... an arsehole who never does anything for anyone but all the other characters think she's hilarious because she's zany.

Good call.

I found Rachel even worse though.  Phoebe was just a bitch but Rachel would go out of her way to fuck with peoples' lives and then try to play the victim afterwards or pass it all off as being a free spirit.

Ross was also a immature pussy who couldn't get over himself.  I wanted to punch him too.

I wanted to punch Chandler for the same reason, plus he wasn't nearly as funny as he thought he was.

Also, Monica got on my nerves at times too.

So really, I hate all the Friends except Joey.

Chandler was FUNNIER than he thought he was, so we agree!

Your post is a great example of the shit we put up with from our friends/our friends put up with from us, though, AKA.

We never saw Ross' son in later episodes, right? Did they move? Did Ross cut ties?

They tongue in cheek mentioned him when Rachel gave birth.
Ross' dad (i think) said he finally had a grandchild and Ross said something like 'what about Ben'.

Reminds me of the final Happy Days, when the whole gang is together and someone says, "wait, where's Chuck?", the Cunningham brother who vanished after season two and was never mentioned again.
