Thread Name: BS: Most Irritating Screen Characters
Subject: BS: Most Irritating Screen Characters
I don't think anyone has posted this yet, if they have, then this is a de-facto restatement of deeply held beliefs.
I have in mind the most irritating characters in television and movie history. This is a personal subject, for I have harbored death wishes for various characters without as a young person being aware that the actors are just doing their jobs.
I ask only that you take the trouble to find the name of the actor playing the detestable character (when such exists) when you post. This is open to both television shows (especially television shows with recurring characters) and of course especially noisome movie characters.
I'm gonna start with my pet favorite: Dr. Zachary Smith from the original "Lost In Space" played by Jonathan Harris. I've just for the first time researched him and found that he was born Jonathan Charasuchin in the Bronx to impoverished Russian parents. He originally had a Bronx accent.
If this thread is original enough and goes anywhere I'll have more to add.
