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.

Acme... yes, Frank Burns.. (Larry Linville). To be fair, he decided himself that the Burns character was no longer working and opted out.

I don't know is anyone else here was caught up in the BritCom "Last of the Summer Wine", but I tolerated most of the odd characters until they got to the last couple of seasons and introduced Luther "Hobbo" Hobdyke, played by Russ Abbot. He made Frank Burns look good.
   There was also Babs Avery(Helen Turaya) who was beyond gross and lasted only one season.

   In another BritCom, "Still Open All Hours", a revival of a successful program from years before, they introduced several amazingly bad characters, of which the worst was "Gastric" (Tim Healy)

Well, I'm a Dick Van Dyke fan but his accent in "Mary Poppins" is a little irritating in retrospect, though when I was a young tyke watching the film I swallowed it whole.

One television show I could not take was "Gomer Pyle, USMC" for both the Gomer character and the Sergeant Carter character. The one was too gloriously yokel and the other had the capability of transmitting high blood pressure.

It lasted five seasons.

There is a concept in books, plays etc. called "suspension of disbelief" The only really irritating characters are those who snap you out of the play or whatever into the real world, thus spoiling the play.

I recently watched (on BBC iPlayer) the version of Hamlet with Andrew Scott as the title character. He was amazing: you 100% believed him as the character, which such variety of stress, pauses and so on, that you had 'a real person' thinking and choosing just the right word to grasp at the right word, or with occasional slight pitch changes to indicate, mid sentence, Hamlet was unsure whether he had "quite got the right word there".

But his sheer skill showed up many of the others so you never really forgot they were actors. One actor in particular had a tattoo on the side of his neck which continually pulled you back to earth. (I find it odd that any actor would choose to have a visible tattoo - it must be role limiting.)

I have to confess to a secret enjoyment of Mr Hankey. Quite disgusting, but so funny!
A TV programme here ('Tattoo Fixers') showed a customer who had Mr Hankey tattooed on his bottom. But he didn't want it 'fixed' or removed, he wanted some more characters from the Hankey family added to it! He got Mrs Hankey and some Hankey offspring as well. At first I was horrified, but the more I thought about it the more I laughed.

I used to abominate Billy Mumy as well as Jonathan Harris, both on the original "Lost in Space". But truth be told, one of the reasons I hated the show was that my brother loved it. There was a show I loved at the same time, "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" and now that I can see both shows in my current dotage, I think they were both pretty awful.

Billy Mumy has had some inspired parts, the classic one being "It's a Good Life" which is one of the simplest scariest episodes of Twilight Zones ever aired (1961). He lived to act in the almost present (Babylon 5). I believe he's still around and acting.

I will work up the will to watch the new "Lost in Space" because Parker Posey is a gifted actor who has what it takes to be massively irritating. She may be an inspired bit of casting. I've found her enjoyable in the past, so this will be very intersting.

I watched "Lost in Space" the reinvented 'new' series and found it quite as brainless as the original, with better looking effects. I found the background story more incomprehensible than TOS (The Original Series) which had a cheerful kinda 60s attitude, "hey we're just sending the family station wagon into space!" It's gonna be hard to give this new one a second chance, especially with Irwin Allen's name occurring in the credits.

Hello there Mike! What's so frustrating is not being able to listen to the music at the end, especially if it's something we love.
We're the same (old folk) very bad at remembering actors' names.
And sometimes, if a drama has been very moving, one wants to spend a few seconds reflecting, not hearing a voice-over and seeing the screen shrink.

It may be that there aren't really any quantities which are constant in time in the universe. The quantity of matter is not constant, because matter can be created or destroyed. But we might say that the energy of the universe would be constant, because when you create matter, you need to use energy. And in a sense the energy of the universe is constant; it is a constant whose value is zero. The positive energy of the matter is exactly balanced by the negative energy of the gravitational field. So the universe can start off with zero energy and still create matter.

[ ARE YOU ANNOYED?] If so you are being annoyed by steven hawking verbatim.

In simple terms, if you dig a hole the volume of the stuff you remove from the hole equals the volume of the hole.

As Minkowki geometrically demonstrates there can be more time than space in spacetime, an imbalance can occur that leads to a overall phase shift.
Just as water can go from a plasma to steam to liquid to ice, a phase change of the universe tends toward entropy and a lower energy state.

[STILL ANNOYED?] if so I already know I can be annoying.

I think annoyance is a good thing like one of our senses.

I found Rowan Atkinson quite irritating as Mr. Bean but I can tolerate him as Maigret.

Much preferred Michael Gambon but I can cope with RA in that role.

A couple of cringe-worthy to me.

Wesley Crusher/Wil Wheaton - Star Trek Next Generation.
Gail of several surnames/Helen Worth - Coronation street.
