I finally got my husband to watch Doctor Who. It isn’t that he wasn’t interested, just SO MANY SHOWS TO WATCH. (I still have to get him to watch BSG…and Farscape…and Sherlock) I started him off with Christopher Eccleston and he was hooked from the first episode.
If you haven’t seen the end of Season 2, don’t read below the cut or after this sentence. You have been warned.
Geekosystem has a list of Star Trek characters fans don’t want to see again. Just in case you don’t want to go read it all for yourselves, here is the list they’ve come up with:
- Wesley Crusher
- Natasha Yar
- William T. Riker
- Deanna Troi
- Lwaxana Troi
- Dr. Katherine Pulaski
- Dr. Julian Bashir
- Kathryn Janeway
I definitely agree on some of them. I love Wil Wheaton, but Wesley was horrible. Also, I never cared for Dr. Pulaski and yes, Riker annoyed me on occasion. As for Counselor Troi, well, I just don’t think she was a very well-written character. She had her moments, but was used mostly as a plot device (as was Wesley, really.)
What are your thoughts? Do you agree, disagree? Any characters not on the list that you think should be?
