24 TV Characters Who Just Turn You Off

EW, or at least EW readers, are not showing Bones much love right now in their photo gallery compilations. Their fan-submitted list of 24 TV Characters Who Just Turn You Off includes not one but two Bones favorites. Obviously it's a gripe-fest of some weird reasons for not liking characters. I would much rather see sites do positive lists than the negatives they've been putting out lately!

i can't believe that there are people who hate Brennan but watch the show because of DB. there's no Bones without Brennan!!!

Its disappointed but after all, people have the right to dislike the show but critize the main character, our dear temperance, its really not fair. People who judge her that's because they don't know her they don't follow her history since the beginning,like us.
To conclude even if every body has the right to dislike the show I find this third position very exagerated.
There is no bones without Brennan , there is no show without her and it's all her specific character which build the show.

I love bones.... As you can see

I don't like the way Brennan is sometimes written. They don't talk about what led to her near emotionless state. They talk about her Foster care and her family, but they never mention what triggered her to become emotionless, or her inability to interact with people.

I think I empathized with Data more than Brennan.

My main point is her character needs more work.

I couldn't believe Brennan and Angela were on this list...I thought for sure it'd be Sweets!

That article just made me mad. IT wasn't even the website, it was people writing in. So, one nutjob has nothing better to do that harsh on Bren and Angela, it doesn't really matter. That show has a lot more charachter then some of the shows that weren't on there. And I couldn't believe that some people watch the show because of DB!!!! It's like eating apple pie when you're alergic to apples, but like the crust. Brennan is the main part of Bones! She IS Bones! (Literally, but, metaphorically too.)

I really do not understand how someone who hates Brennan can watch this show. Granted, the particular comment on this list said that they don't, but I've seen people say the love the show, except for Brennan before. I could never watch a show where I hated the main character, and I've always felt like Brennan was the main character here.

I hate these lists because, as Justin said, it's not the magazine. These galleries consist of one person's comment per photo. And look at this list! It has almost every major character on TV on it! Meredith, Izzie, & Derek from Grey's Anatomy, Ross from Friends, House & Cuddy, Brennan, Carrie from Sex and the City...and half the comments are from people who said they don't even watch the show, which means their opinion was probably formed after one episode or less. EW does these lists all the time, and they're just ridiculous.

That list was idiotic.

I'll admit, I hate Dawn Summers from Buffy with a fiery passion.

But the rest of the list was just plain stupid. Brennan, Angela, House, Cuddy, and Jordan (from Scrubs)? Really?! And the people's reasons were whiny and silly - I think I saw them bash one actress because of her haircut.

I don't like these lists...They're just a waste of time for me. I like it when people talk about others in a positive manner. I love Brennan and Angela....anyone that messes with my favorite show is on my s*** list. Booth and Bones 4Eva.....

To Justin, I assume you are a male because of your name. I can understand how you feel about DB. It's very simple. YOU ARE JEALOUS!!!I watch Bones for one reason and that reason is Boreanaz.

Most of the "annoying" people are strong-willed, self assured women. For some reason, people really don't like women who do their own thing.

BTW I totally disagree that Brennan is "emotionless." There is a difference between not showing your emotions on the surface and not having them.

How could there be a BONES without her? She is the show. DB & ED have wonderful chemistry but without her there would be no show!! Her character is hilarious & I love her!! She's an amazing actress!!!!
