Annoying queen

Day 23 - Most annoying character

[profile] crickwooder said George Costanza for this one, and I have to admit, it's pretty hard to top that choice. Because, dude. I just. HATEY HATE.

And I have thought about this all day and can't come up with someone. I mean, there are lots of candidates, don't get me wrong. But most annoying? That's a difficult crown to give. Wow, I wish I were graphically inclined, because then I could do some sort of elimination challenge chart. Do I go back to Gilmore Girls, which, when they had annoying characters, they went all the way? Or Buffy, which could turn a decent person into an annoyance with picosecond precision? Or how about shows I don't like, like SPN or SGA, primarily because I find, you know, the characters annoying? Because that gets into a whole other level of problems, since so many of my flist loves the characters I hate most, and I don't really want to do that nasty peeing on cereal thing. And don't even get me started on Sylar and Heroes.

No, I think I will give the blue ribbon to...someone recent, and someone that I don't believe anyone I know likes: Tammy on Southland. I don't know if there's ever been a more grating character: she's whiny, stupid, selfish, shallow, needy, grating, feeble, pathetic, venal, and vile. We're supposed to care, I guess, that she's trapped in suburbia, the soul of an artist going stale being married to a cop, whatever. I don't care. I wished she would have gotten killed by the drug dealers she met on the bridge. I wish the dog would have eaten her in the beginning. I wish to hell she would go away. There are some truly annoying characters on Southland, but she trumps them all.

Tammy and George Costanza...destined to meet on a cruise and cause ire and consternation for the other passengers. And, hopefully, she'll leave her husband for George. ;)

Oh, wouldn't that be so awesome? Someone would throw them overboard.

oh god - Tammy is an astonishingly annoying character! I also wish she would go away; every time a scene includes her, I want to change the channel or close my eyes and cover my ears and go "lalalalalalalala" until she goes away again.

I know. I have to FF through everything with her, and then I miss stuff that sometimes gets referred back to later. Arg.

This weekend the BFF and I might have actually been shouting at Tammi through the television set. Actually, I think that one possible reason Southland wasn't more popular was the face time that so many unlikeable characters got in the first episodes.

Kim Bauer from 24 is also in the running. And The OC's Marissa Cooper.

If only the cougar had really killed Kim. THen maybe we could also have had it kill Tammy. I'm telling you, that would have been a scene I wouldn't have FFed through.
