TV's 21 Most Polarizing Characters: Do You Love 'Em or Hate 'Em?

We see the way you talk about them, you know….

There are certain names — belonging to fictional TV characters, mind you — that when highlighted in a TVLine news item or feature story elicit, um, “strong” reactions from their show’s collective fan base.

You love ‘em! Or… you hate ‘em! (And mind you, hate is a strong word.)

So, here now, we pay tribute to the most polarizing, divisive, love-’em or hate-’em TV characters now inhabiting primetime. Take a look at our list, then sound off in Comments if you find these folks desirable, or despicable. Awesome, or loathsome. Also feel free to nominate any other fan base rousers!

  • LOVE Jenna Maroney. This has been her best season yet. Love Tara, can’t wait to see what’s going to happen, hopefully she sticks around. Stopped watching HIMYM because of Ted.

    • I get a lot of them (Jess, Betty, Owen after last night), but I don’t get Blaine! He seems pretty innocuous. I understand being frustrated by the likes of Rick or Deb but I still find them likable. If I was to add someone, it would be Shane from Walking Dead. He does bad things but he’s not a bad dude. Also, Karen from Smash isn’t polarizing. She just sucks.

      • I agree with you about Shane. Jon Bernthal is terrific, he plays the part so well, but Shane is not a likeable guy. He may have good intentions, but makes a lot of bad choices. I kind of hated Shane, but I loved Jon Bernthal. And as for Blaine, I adore Darren Criss so I don’t get it either, but I know there are a lot of Blaine haters out there.

      • I think the problem people have with Blaine is that he comes off as almost TOO perfect, to the point that his personality is just really bland. Not to mention he gets a solo pretty much every episode, and has become a more important character than people who have been there since season 1…

        • Important character…?
          I think I really have a problem with characterizing Blaine as important just because he gets solos, he gets to sing but virtually no storyline that do not involve being supportive of Kurt, so I do wonder how is he that important. As a person who has been specially keen on his development because of some insinuations now and then, I can tell you that I’m the first person dissapointed with all the solos and the lack of agency he has…
          I really cannot understand the hate, he is an underdevoloped character who happens to sing a lot, much like Mercedes in S1 and part of 2. You cannot blame a certain characters for getting the solos, you should wonder about the intentions of the producers giving an actor only solos instead of acting material, that’s all I have to say.
          And yes, I understand that this is just a generalization of why people don’t like Blaine and it’s probably not even your opinion on the character, I think we should add that his hate is much more motivated because of “shipping wars”.

      • Uh! Karen! I don’t hate her, but she’s not my favorite. She’s fine for the chorus, but I seriously don’t understand why the Marilyn crew think she is as good as (or better) than Ivy.

    • Hi TV Line, I get that you need hits and good ratings and ad money for the website and that posting Blaine/Klaine hate and pro-Karofsky posts gets you lots of hits and comments from anti-Blaine stans and even more hits from annoyed Blaine fans who reply to the anti posts, but frankly all this causes is unnecessary wank in the fandom so can you maybe stop?

      I get that for you a relationship between an ex-bully and his victim is interesting and more romantic and sure it’ll be more interesting, it defintiely WONT be even remotely HEALTHY and I admire Kurt so much and this kind of relationship would be the last thing I’ll want him to have, but fine whatever, different strokes and stuff, but I have personally been bullied severely and I find Karofsky quite triggering and I identify a LOT with Blaine, and Kurt and Blaine’s relationship made me brave enough to come out and seeing them helped my parents understand so much and their relationship dynamics is what I hope I’ll find one day. I thank Glee for giving them to me everyday because I was in a very very bad place at that time and I usually don’t reply to this kind of biased attention-seeking articles but I am frankly frustrated, because most of the anti-Blaine comments involve calling him a rapist, which I find insulting and horrifying because I HAVE been sexually assaulted and the closest thing I’ve seen to a sexual assault on Glee is the Karofsky kissing Kurt scene in Never Been Kissed and the cake topper scene in Furt by Karofsky, who they glorify and idolize and frankly the whole thing is triggering.

      Also most of the comments involve insulting the actor who portrays Blaine and sure you can have your own opinions about an actor, but name-calling and insulting people who admire him is crass and disgusting and I am actually sickened and frustrated. Also, I have seen comments on articles before that Blaine’s existence is an insult to gays because he wears bowties and cardigans apparently and is the worst type of stereotype to exist and so he should get off the show but, well hello, I love wearing bowties and cardigans, I AM a stereotype, so does that mean am the most horrible thing to happen to the world or something? Also, yes I will agree I am disappointed with everything about Glee and the way they are handling Kurt and Blaine this season, but its not because of anything Kurt and Blaine HAVE done, its because they DONT get to do anything. They are ignored most of the time except for when Glee has a “big gay episode” and I’ll blame the writers for complete lack of story progression but I most certainly dont find anything wrong with them as a couple at all, because frankly, they are the healthiest most equal relationship on the show and they make me hope for an equal loving relationship too someday.

      So sure, TV Line, I get that you need the hits and the ad money, and the Glee fandom is one of the most responsive, but maybe you can find some other characters to make articles about, who are not this triggering and whose fandom is not this vile and crass? Your cheap stunts to get hits are becoming boring and the response it receives are all offensive and triggering and frankly, I am tired.

      Thank you for being a biased unprofessional website. :)

      P.S. I’m sure at least one Karofsky fan will laugh at me and call me a ~Klainer 12~ and call me stupid and tell me I have no brains etc, but hey, your favorite character tried to kill himself because of Cyber bullying and bullying others on the internet is pretty much what 3/4th of your fanbase (that I’ve encountered anyway) does, so maybe you should all actually think a little? You all seem to be losing the message your own favorite character is trying to tell. :)

      • Look who’s talking about cyber-bullying. Not to mention you Klainers have done some of the WORST things, making tumblrs with names like karofsky-should-die and going around telling Kurtofsky fans they should DIE because they like the pairing and treating Dave as a monster and Blaine as a saint. Not a Dave fan has ever denied that everything he did in the past was wrong (even though it felt pretty forced, writing-wise), but Klaine fans like you treat him the very same way you claim your precious Blaine is on this site. People might dislike Klaine because the relationship feels way too one-sided in Blaine’s favor, plastic and fake, and they don’t talk about the important stuff (Kurt’s decision about Sebastian’s confession springs to mind, as does the fact that he didn’t see Blaine from the scene in Michael until the so-called ‘gift’, which was Blaine showing off in ‘Heart’).

        I like to read other fans opinions, sometimes it will even tempt me to start watching a new show, but with yours, why bother? At least if you keep a blog, you’ll find out if anyone else cares what you think. Too bad there’s not an abuse button here.

      • I agree whole-heartedly. I look at this site often and whenever I read a Glee article it is full of negative comments about the writing, lack of character developement, and character bashing. I personally LOVE all the characters on Glee. Yes the storylines are inconsistent, and there are some things that offend me about the show( particularly Santana’s forced coming out and the forever present Finchel scenes), but overall I like the show. You have to remember that this site is an online tabloid type of site so the articles up here are always going to be biased.

        And I’m gay, and I’ve been bullied, etc, etc… yet I don’t live projecting personal issues like that on a tv show meant for entertainment, if you do, YOU have a serious problem, because all tv shows may portray something eventually “triggering” for someone, thus in consequence we may all live avoiding movies, news, documentaries and all sorts of media; sorry, but that’s ridiculous and the “triggering” argument is getting very old… and if you really want to condemn someone for showing “creepy triggering” stuff on tv, save that for Ryan Murphy… hello, he’s the creator of “Nip/Tuck”, what else were you exactly expecting uh?

      • I am a HUGE fan. I would love to see him come back in a regular role, in whatever form they like, as long as he’s played by Misha. Would also appreciate some guest shots by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, he’s stated that he would love to do it, if only to rehabilitate what the show did to John’s memory.

    • Not a Cas fan. He shouldn’t have come back this season. Sera was a coward and bowed down to the Cas fans. Big mistake. I can’t believe she’s considering putting him in S8.
      Jim Beaver deserves to come back, but not Cas. His storyline is over and should stay over.

        • I agree that the idea of death is pretty much meaningless on Supernatural because they bring everyone back. It makes things less poignant overall, although Death’s Door was a phenomenal episode. As much as I liked Bobby, I keep thinking back to season 2 and the “what’s dead should stay dead” theme. The brothers can’t die for good but it would be nice if Castiel, Bobby and others would if only to make death actually mean something on SPN.

    • As someone else who also loves him, I think people hate him because he gets WAY more screen time and songs than some of the original cast members. He’s also one of those character that I could see being too likable.

      Comment by Amanda Leigh – March 16, 2012 12:09 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I like Cas but having him around too often takes away from the suspense. How can a viewer be concerned for the characters if they know the angel is always going to be there to fix things? That’s been my main issue with the character.

        Comment by Ann – March 16, 2012 12:38 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I guess you’ve forgotten how Bobby always had the answer for every problem in his books. Or the new convenient guest starts that fix things now. And the way to solve this problem is to just make Cas human. Which is what I’m hoping for.

          Comment by Dilys – March 16, 2012 01:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • No human Castiel nothing IMO could be worse. Canon has already established with Anna how Angels become human I would hate the writers to go there and make Castiel human another way.

            Comment by Lucy – March 16, 2012 02:55 PM PDT  
          • Yes Dilys. Taking away Castiel, and then the Impala, and then Bobby was the way to take the boys out of their element and make the situations harder and more dire. Unfortunately the writers had to introduce Frank since otherwise they have no idea how to explain anything, since they just aren’t creative enough. Sigh.

            Comment by Mellie – March 16, 2012 04:42 PM PDT  
          • But even when Bobby had the answers, they still had to work at the solution. They still had to find a weapon and go kill the thing. Cas could basically snap his fingers and make anything happen. The dead come back to life, check. Smiting bad guys, check. He made Dean and Sam worthless, and that’s not the show I signed up for.

            Comment by Ruby – March 17, 2012 09:34 AM PDT  
          • that is true, they should have kept it so the boys did their own research, but on the other hand it was an excuse to show bobby right!! at least bobby was a flawed person, who lived up to his mistakes, unlike certain over characters who just flutter their wings and all is forgiven.

            Comment by whocares!! – March 17, 2012 11:09 AM PDT  
        • @ann I wish this site had a like button. I too am anti-angel because they have been used as the ultimate cop-out for times when the writers write themselves into a corner. The angels are far too powerful for the human story of two brothers fighting evil.

          Comment by Dahne – March 16, 2012 05:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • The “human story of two brothers fighting evil”? The brothers might be human but rarely has anything they’ve fought been actually human.

            If you do an actual re-look back at the series and the episodes featuring Castiel you can see that rarely did he act as the “zap, all fixed” miracle worker he’s been accused of being season near the end of season 6. In Season 4 he started out as the BAMF warrior of God who was threatening to throw Dean back into hell if he didn’t play the role he was meant to play. Then he started to question the truth of what he was told to do… but still, Dean and Sam were making their own decisions and their own mistakes.

            In season 5 Castiel was reduced to being mostly human, again, rarely having enough mojo to fix anything… zap them to the past, but at cost, maybe have a little bit of insight or knowledge, but no more than Bobby and his library of books.

            Season 6 Cas was back as an angelic being, but he was mostly off-screen fighting the war in heaven to stop Raphael re-starting the Apocalypse. He came back now and again, but mostly for his own purposes… and it was only in the final eps that he pulled the “zap, fixed your wounds”, “zap, made Dean and Lisa forget” stuff.

            Castiel is an important character in the lives of Dean and Sam – a friend, a family member. To dismiss him so easily is to dismiss his importance to Dean and Sam (and, btw, to Jensen and Jared, who both have expressed a desire to see Castiel – among others – back).

            Castiel? Hands down one of the best characters on Supernatural.

          • @app42

            Writers are the ones, who made Castiel so important in the story line. Winchesters could have done all that time travel and other Castiel-centered things, even without his help. May be they would have found a spell to travel in time. Or, put hex bags in their pockets all the time to save them from angels and demons, if Castiel were not there to engrave the markings on their ribs. Castiel was never IMO is the only solution to all the problems, he has solved in the show. There were many alternative and beautiful ways of solving those problems.

        • Loooool, I was confused too. Castiel has too many songs? Maybe he sings them on road trips and drives the boys crazy and that’s why they won’t let him ride in the backseat. But I can see Castiel and his holy brethren forming a choir in heaven and singing gospel versions of classic rock songs ala Gregorian Chant. :)

          • Castiel. I’m a fan of him and can’t wait for him to come back to the show. For me, its now so much a revival from the dead (though that does happen quite a bit) as much as him coming back. It was thought that he had died but there really wasn’t a definite death. Another thing about Cas is that in every interview, it was never said he was coming back as an angel. He was coming back as a healer. He’s still our Cas but he may not have the savior influence that he used to have over the boys. I also think that the writers have been bringing back some of the original storyline theme into the newest season. It really hasn’t been the strictly religious plot line, it’s been some good old fashioned hunting on the brother’s part. Though I do agree that Bobby should stay dead. I love Bobby but he really should represent an important death and he had a good send-off. Though there have been hints that he is a ghost now. I’m just excited to see Castiel’s new character’s influence on the show. O and the singing thing is a shipping thing. The songs are quite entertaining.

    • Can’t stand him. Blaine has been awful to Kurt on more than one occasion. And Darren Criss isn’t a very good actor. He has a fine singing voice, but anything that requires emotion? He’s lost. Blaine is the main reason I’ve lost interest in Glee. I hope that next season Kurt and he aren’t together anymore and Kurt finds someone worthy of his love.

      • You are wrong. He’s never been awful to Kurt, and when you say something like that you are insulting Kurt’s intelligence by saying he would stay with someone who treat’s him badly.

        • So, the Scandal’s car scene never happened? Kurt surely seemed hurt by Blaine’s behavior. So, talking to the guy that insults your boyfriend behind your boyfriend’s back is a appropriate behavior? Good to know.

          Your Blaine goggles are too thick, my dear.

          • Please be accurate. Sebastian insulted Kurt TO HIS FACE and BEHIND BLAINE’S BACK so how was Blaine to know about it?

            Looks like your Blaine hate goggles are on a bit too tight and it’s affecting your viewing comprehension skills adversely, my dear.

            And yes, Blaine made a mistake in the car scene and hurt Kurt’s feelings. Then he apologized and they talked it out because that’s what mature couples do. End of story.

          • This response is to the anon responding to carol. IT was far worse, he did so when Blaine left (more like scaped)knowing how Sebastian was for Kurt to deal with him. Also he continued to mantain contact with Sebastian after that second encounter. Blaine’s cluelessness when convenient do not justify his actions.

          • As I said, please be accurate in your claims :)

            Blaine did not ~maintain contact with Sebastian; it was heavily implied in HOTS that he was avoiding him online, and Sebastian phoned him ONCE canonically for advice on wine stains. That’s it.

            Are you talking about in HOTS? When Sebastian was making Blaine extremely uncomfortable and he stepped away for a moment? Blaine is allowed to take care of himself, you know. Kurt’s a big boy; he didn’t have to talk to Sebastian if he didn’t want to.

            Blaine is not clueless; he is uncomfortable with Sebastian and Sebastian’s ties with the Warblers made it difficult for Blaine to deal with him aggressively (until they went too far, and then we saw Blaine take a slushy for Kurt and prove where his loyalties lay).

        • So Blaine wasn’t wrong when he tried to force himself on Kurt in the car in the First Time? And Blaine wasn’t wrong to talk to Sebatian (a boy who is threatening to come between them) behind Kurt’s back, and then refuse to discuss it? Blaine is a one dimensional character, and that is in large part to the fact that Darren Criss is a one dimensional actor.

          • How is DC a one dimensional actor? Have you seen him in anything besides Glee?

            Anyway, Blaine didn’t try to force himself on Kurt, so there’s that (and he apologized for his insensitive drunken proposition).

            Blaine had one conversation (initiated by Sebastian) on the phone with Sebastian. What are you talking about, refused to discuss it? He was seriously injured after a violent assault; I’d say as the victim it’s his right to not want to talk about it. That kind of trauma can take a long time to work through, especially since he’s been assaulted and the victim of a hate crime in the past.

            Haha Blaine is certainly not a one-dimensional character, even if the writers haven’t given him enough development or focus. They have at least given us hints and clues as to his complexity and depth. He’s very interesting, if enigmatic still, at this point.

          • Gary Stu!Blaine bores me so much… I’d like Blaine more if he stayed at Dalton and appeared only to sing just one song per week instead of making the whole show revolve around him and his (lack of) plot (real meaningful plot anyway)…

        • Blarren fans are exhausting. The very *second* that Sebastian told Kurt that he and Blaine had been in contact behind Kurt’s back, Kurt should have ditched him. It’s no secret that Kurt despised Sebastian and if Blaine was as great as Blarren fans claimed, he would have firmly sat Sebastian down and told him it wasn’t going to happen. Sebastian had absolutely no respect for Klaine (a sentiment I can sympathize with) and Blaine didn’t care.

          • It’s not Kurt’s place to tell Blaine who he can and cannot talk to. That would be controlling and overbearing behavior, even for a boyfriend. Also, Blaine is dapper and polite to the very end, and it’s been made very obvious that he doesn’t like dealing with Sebastian. Kurt handles himself very well around Sebastian and can hold his own. Kurt doesn’t need Blaine to fight his battles.

        • 1. When he told Kurt to “tone down” his singing style to blend in.
          2. When he would rather kiss a girl and date her than have anything to do with Kurt romantically.
          3. When he laughed at Kurt for trying to be sexy.
          4. When he told Kurt that he shouldn’t wear his kilt – because he would stand out too much.
          5. When he assaulted Kurt while drunk in his car – all so that he could act better and more realistic in a play.
          6. When he went behind Kurt’s back to meet Sebastian.
          7. When he constantly was flirting with Kurt and then wanted to date a guy at The Gap.
          Blaine just isn’t good enough for Kurt. Kurt deserves romance and as Blaine has said – he’s not good at it. And boy, is that true. Have we ever seen him bring Kurt flowers or done anything romantic?

          • Okay, I guess I’m going to just do this point by point.
            1. He never said that at all. The song Kurt auditioned with didn’t fit the tone of the Warblers, a group that sings mostly Top 40.
            2. Yes, obviously he’d would much rather do that when he’s gay and has now been with Kurt for a year? No. It’s not Blaine’s fault that he was confused about his sexual identity or that he hadn’t realized his feeling for Kurt yet.
            3. And you DIDN’T laugh at Kurt’s “sexy” faces? They were ridiculous. We all, including Blaine, know that Kurt is sexy. He doesn’t need to TRY.
            4. Can you blame him? The last time he went to a dance he got assaulted for simply being who he was, a gay boy. He shouldn’t have to apologize for his traumatic experiences.
            5. What Blaine did to Kurt in the car was not at all assault. He got handsy with his boyfriend but didn’t touch him anywhere or do anything that could even come close to assault. Kurt was upset because Blaine wanted to have sex in the backseat, not because he kissed him while he was drunk.
            6. They didn’t “meet.” Blaine was under the impression that Sebastian wanted to be friends, and then when he realized that wasn’t the case he tried to push him away. But he’s still allowed to talk to him. Kurt doesn’t dictate who Blaine was hang out or be friends with.
            7. KURT AND BLAINE WERE NOT DATING. Blaine wasn’t even aware of Kurt’s feelings! Kurt isn’t more DESERVING of anything that Blaine isn’t as well. But Blaine HAS given Kurt romance. He’s confessed his feelings, his love, almost gave up a leading role, jumped in front of a rock salt laced slushie that landed him in the hospital and requiring him to have eye surgery, and he transferred schools to be with Kurt. He’s sung to him more than once (more than I can say for Kurt although that’s about to change YAY!) and has just been an all around great boyfriend. I’d definitely say that Blaine is romantic.

        As for Darren, if he was a crap actor, I highly doubt he’d be on broadway. And yet, look at that! 3 weeks will 100% ticket sales sitting on top of the broadway grossing list.

          They both love each other equally. Not one is set higher than the other except when asked by individual fans of either of them. If this were the case, they’d be more like Finchel in which it’s clear that Rachel is the stronger character of the relationship.

        • Darren Criss only made it to Broadway because he has a fanbase that glorifies him beyond what he deserves. If Darren Criss had gone into audition for that role before he was on Glee, he would not have been cast. He does not have a Broadway voice. He doesn’t have the range or power in his voice to be a Broadway caliber performer. In five years, no one will even remember who Darren Criss is.

          • Clearly you didn’t see How To Succeed. I saw it with Daniel Radcliffe and it was such a fantastic show I also went to see it with Darren Criss out of curiosity. Darren absolutely had a Broadway voice when I saw the show in his last week. Far better than Dan, sorry Dan…. Not only was his re-imagining of the character of Pierrepont Finch absolutely brilliant, his singing and dancing was phenomenal as well. He easily kept up with and blended perfectly with the veteran Broadway actors on that stage. He was electrifying. THAT is what made me START watching Glee. The writing absolutely sucks on that crapy show, but I watch it for him. I’ve begun watching season 1 on DVD, because I now love Lea Michel and Chris Colfer because of some of their acting and performances within the crappy show, and it seems they used to have a good show going there with some quality writing, in the beginning. Perhaps they shouldn’t have chosen the new writers they did for this season??

          • Darren should have taken the X-F job rather than remain on Glee. He’s personable but his talent is limited. Without Glee, he wouldn’t have been star-cast for a 3 week B-way run and he doesn’t have the star power to make a show go on his own, long-term.

            Had he done X-Factor, he could have developed and globally expanded his fan base. He’s made a critical career mistake in his decision.

        • Actually that only happened because he is a teen idol. Plus I have read reviews from proper thearter critics, that said his singing was weak and his acting wasn’t that good either because he pandered to the fans, he was more Darren then his character. I have also read this from fans. He needs to stop this unless he wants to kill off his career. Forget the fans think of his future.
          Blaine has hurt Kurt. Kurt sort him out after the car scene in TFT. Blaine didn’t sort out him, Kurt had to make the first move. Sebastian insulted Kurt in front of Blaine in Michael, Blaine did nothing, but Santana did.
          Blaine is a selfish and self centered character that his actions and comments are covered over as we are meant to see him as perfect.
          And his past gaybashing, bet they have changed it so it never happened.

      • How does being completely in love with Kurt mean that he’s awful to him? The only thing I can think of is the car scene, but Blaine apologized and Kurt forgave him. Simple as that. Blaine transferred schools, almost gave up a leading role, and risked his sigh for Kurt. Also, love isn’t about being WORTHY of someone. It’s about being equals in the relationship and putting the other before yourself. The only thing I can say about Darren’s acting is that he’s fantastic considering the lines he receives on the show. Just watch him in How to Succeed and he’ll prove you wrong. His performance of Cough Syrup really showed me how amazing he can be.

          • What show did you watch because that’s not what happened. Blaine said, and I quote, “Sebastian doesn’t mean anything to me. And you were right. Our first time shouldn’t be like that. I was drunk, and I’m sorry.” That certainly sounds like an apology for his actions to me. Stop trying to put words into his mouth and actually listen to what the characters say.

          • @ Jamie

            saying “I was drunk and I’m sorry” stil isn’t apologizing for the right thing. I think he at least needed a “I forced myself on you, and it was wrong. Being drunk isn’t an excuse” and to have not gotten exactly what he tried to take by force 15 minutes/ a day or two later. It was nonconsensual (if Kurt hadn’t been able to force Blaine off him, considering Blaine’s attitude, I don’t think Blaine would have stopped), and it was treated like it was on par with Rachel and Blaine’s drunk kiss when anyone with any self-respect and a clear mind could tell it wasn’t.

          • Blaine didn’t need to apologize for “forcing himself” on Kurt, because he did not do that.

            He did not try to take anything by force for God’s sake; Kurt sat on top of Blaine and Blaine told him how much he wanted to have sex right then and there and Kurt got (justifiably) pissed and got off of him.

            Kurt didn’t have to force Blaine off of him, since HE was on BLAINE and just had to get up to get off of him. Blaine offered no resistance. Blaine was doing nothing but speaking when Kurt decided to get out of the car. He wasn’t groping Kurt, wasn’t trying to kiss him anymore, wasn’t trying to remove any clothes. There was nothing TO stop except Blaine’s drunken ramblings.

            So are you saying Kurt has no self-respect or clear mind? As the person in that situation, HE is the one who gets to decide if he feels assaulted, and he absolutely didn’t. He was hurt by Blaine’s words, not scared or assaulted.

            Blaine’s blanket “I’m sorry” covered all his behavior that night. “I was drunk” was him acknowledging that it was inappropriate to propose sex under such circumstances, NOT him excusing his actions because of alcohol.

        • Kurt was the one to reach out for Blaine and I really HATED that. After the car scene Blaine should have been the first one to look for a way to mend things, instead after getting mad at Kurt for not accepting his advances (or fun as he put it) he still didn’t speak to Kurt first. Kurt had to start conversation complimenting Blaine about how good he was on the play. And yeah, this is most likely not Blaine’s fault but the writers who try forcing us to believe Blaine is so wonderful or never wrong enough to ask for forgivenes. That’s what REALLY makes me mad.

Sorry if the logistics weren’t to your liking, but the outcome was what was important. Kurt forgave him. Blaine didn’t need to ASK for it because Kurt willingly gave it to him. What more do we really need?

          • Yeah, Blaine probably should have been the one to approach Kurt. But I take it he knew he messed up big time, you could tell he was beating himself up over it. Chances are he probably thought Kurt was pissed and didn’t want to talk to him. And I’m guessing Kurt probably knew this, which is why Kurt was the one to start the conversation.

          • I found the “he was drunk” excuse so alarming. Really? If you go out with your boyfriend and he tries to “have fun” but you don’t want to, is it your fault? Doesn’t he hold any responsability? And NO. I absolutely disagree with “Kurt forgave him, that’s that”. I DISEGREE too with Kurt forgiving in that way. But mostly I disagree with the writers doing that in order to keep Blaine awesome and free of true fault. THAT is what makes people who dislike Blaine even more vocal. His affecting of characters completely rounded and flawed, without a purpose. Without any true staying effect.

      • Blaine treats kurt awful? He transfered to his school so kurt can have a magical year. Blaine went to prom with kurt when the last time he went to a dance someone beat him up. Blaine took a slushie for kurt, that had rock salt in it, which made him get surgery. Blaine stood up to kurt’s bully without even knowing who he is and he only knew kurt for less than a episode, which is somethinng a character has never done. Blaine said ‘you are the most intresting kid in ohio’, ‘you always zig when i think you’re about to zag and i just love that about you’, ‘i really care about him’ and so much more. Im a huge kurt fan and blaine doesnt treat him bad, hes made some mistakes but to say that kurt or any other character hasent is a lie.

He’s a teenage boy, he’s going to make mistakes, but he’s grown as a character and helped Kurt become a stronger person. He’s not the only reason Kurt is stronger, but he definitely helped and he would do anything for Kurt because Kurt is his world.

        • Saying Blaine’s the only reason Kurt is stronger is not only one of the worst but the least accurate. While I do believe Blaine makes Kurt happy (universe knows why sometimes) Kurt’s always been strong. Whether voluntarily or by mistake different set of writters have acklowledged Kurt as one of the strongest students in general. Being Finn in Furt of Karofsky in On my way, they know Kurt is a very strong person, one that in order to be true to himself has to have such strenght, courage and integrity to keep on going and both storylines had nothing to do with Blaine.

      • I totally agree with you on all points. (I have posted similar comments here in the past.) If he’s singing, he’s alive, but without the mike or the pretense of performing, he fades back into himself. He seems incapable of expressing a fully realized emotion unless he’s singing.

        I knew what this season was going to be, The Blaine Show, and I truly did try to accept the changes so that I could continue to love Glee, but his presence had changed the nature of Glee, beyond the scenes he is in or the songs he sings. The rest of the characters have been wittled down to make room for him, song time has been lost to give to him, etc… Glee is a shadow of its former self and though it’s not Criss’s fault (it’s RIB+6), his arrival signalled the start of that change.

        What is most disturbing is that before Ryan Murphy lit eyes upon Darren Criss, Chris and Kurt were in the forefront of the show. Chris Colfer was the rising talent treated like a king. When Criss arrived on the scene, Kurt became the ‘red-headed stepchild’ of Glee. I’m sure ppl will disagree ad-nauseum, but in the communities on livejournal where I hang out, we constantly lament the day the spotlight was turned – away from this enormously talented and deserving young man – to the Usurper, Darren Criss. Because clearly, Ryan Murphy can’t give focus to two talented young men at once…

        And I miss Tina, g-di! (Tina is the polar ice caps of Glee – like global warming, an unsettling sign of the “climate” change of Glee…)

        • Kurt has been my favorite character since Season 1 and Blaine has been a favorite since he joined the show. The last thing I would call Glee is “The Blaine Show”. If anything it’s the “Rachel, Finn, Kurt and Santana Show” which is fine with me because I enjoy most of those characters. Kurt has tons more dialogue and stories than Blaine (and really any Glee character not named Rachel). Blaine rarely gets dialogue much less story. He does get more songs than Kurt but this is nothing new (other characters getting more songs than Kurt) – Chris only prefers to sing songs that have great meaning to Kurt’s story anyway. I would always love to hear Kurt sing more though. Also, Blaine does not get as many songs as Rachel, Santana or Mercedes. I do agree about poor Tina though.

        • I LOVE Chris and Kurt and I absolutely HATE Blaine but I have got to disagree. I never understand the thought behind people saying Blaine is favored or that Glees the Blaine Show now.

          Blaine does nothing but sing and he’s hardly around when he’s not. Every story he’s had so far has been connected to Kurt and was majorily Kurts storyline. Blaine is also the worst written character on the show. He’s inconsistent and lacks developement. If thats RIB showing favoritism then I cringe to think of what he does to people he dislikes.

          That said I also completely dislike him. Like I said, he’s inconsistent, and underdeveloped and yet somehow they still manged to make him into an unbearable Gary Stu. In a show with a lot of not so great characters he is the absolute worst and Glee was made worse by making him a part of it.

      • I love your comment Beth. You are right on the money here. Blaine/Darren has a very enthusiastic group of fans who think he is the second coming of Jesus Christ. In reality, he has a weak voice with a limited range, and can’t act anything outside of lovey dovey and idiotic drunk. The producers have to resort to having all of the actresses go all go gaga over him every time he sings, and piping in applause at competitions when he opens his mouth so that the average viewer thinks he’s good. Chris Colfer is an amazing actor, and he deserves a better scene partner than Darren Criss.

      • The acting of Darren Criss is the only thing that has developed the character of Blaine, because the writers give him NOTHING! Darren is saving the character of Blaine, helped immensely by the acting of Chris Colfer as well.

        • I think the acting of the characters is what saves them in many cases. Naya brings more to Santana than the writing ever could. Same with Lea and Rachel. Kevin makes me actually like Artie, who is actually a sexist jerk (though improving this season). Cory Monteith is the single saving grace of Finn Hudson.

          I think the actors (especially Darren, Chris, Naya, and Kevin) put way more thought and effort into the concept of their characters than the writers do. When you read/hear quotes by the actors, it’s always just, YES YES (ex. Kevin notes that Artie doesn’t treat girls well and thinks there’s some complicated reasons why, Naya thinks Santana’s “ghetto-ness” is a front, Darren has extensive and compelling headcanons for Blaine). And of course we know CC puts a lot of effort into Kurt; the only thing I disagree with him on is Kurt needing to go to NY alone to be “independent.” You can be independent with loving friends, family, and bf, which is exactly what Kurt is. You don’t have to be alone, which is what Kurt WAS, and he was miserable during those times.

          Anyway, I love Blaine (and several other characters), love Klaine, think CC and DC have fantastic chemistry and put a lot of thought into the dynamic of the relationship (probably the best scene to show their everyday dynamic is the scene in Blaine’s bedroom in TFT, honest, relaxed, caring, fun) and it really shows when they’re actually given scenes together.

            bring anything to the writing or the character.

            Rachel gets crap writing but Lea makes her work,
            Cory gets crap writing but make it work. Kevin too

            Santana and Kurt at least get a few storyline
            to sink their teeth in.

          For all the fanfare, Dan Radcliffe still outsold Blarren in ticket sales, and by all reputable critics, outperformed him as well.

          If you’re already smitten with DC, you’ll never see anything but hearts and rainbows from him.

      • I cannot stand Blaine either, but that’s because I feel like he stole the spotlight from the other cast members. I loved the way he sang in his first episode but then he just started showing up again… and again.. and again.. It just felt like they gave him so much more than some of the other cast members and he was just a guest star. I was content with the Valentine’s day episode until he showed up. I think they should add Rachel here too, I can’t stand her and her I-was-born-to-be-a-star-so-only-I-can-have-the-spotlight attitude sometimes but she is such a great singer.

I fully, and accurately, place the blame at the feet of the worst writing staff on television. I really wish some of these tween fans would remember that.

      • Or maybe some fans just don’t like the character. Not everything is a big conspiracy. It is possible for people to look at the character, think his voice is unremarkable, think his acting isn’t impressive, and rather see other characters featured in both songs and screen time. I don’t think Blaine brings anything to the scenes that he’s in and it’s gotten to the point that I fast-forward his songs. I don’t care one way or the other about Darren Criss and I also don’t care about Kurt’s love life so I guess I’m someone who doesn’t fall into either of your categories.

      • Blaine is not perfect. Stop saying he is perfect. This is why we dislike Blaine because you all insist he is perfect. He isn’t perfect. He is just an empty character with no development or depth. There is a difference. They could have done so much with this character, but all they use him for is songs. He doesn’t bring plot to the show, he hasn’t had ANY character development, and they keep having his character regress further and further with each episode. He was supposed to be an older, wise, mentor to Kurt. Now he is a clueless school boy who is YOUNGER. That is why people don’t like Blaine. Because when we look at him, all we see is how fair his character has been regressed…

          But I agree he’s not perfect. Which is why I love him <3 He's flawed and real with hurts and insecurities, but a good person and healthy and confident overall.

          PS you can't simultaneously say they haven't done anything with his character AND that they've regressed him (they haven't regressed him).

      • Definitely not perfect. He has his moments of nastiness. What about when he told Sam that he wasn’t for sale? Talk about classist and slut-shaming! Sam was stripping to provide for his family. Someone who is portrayed as having money like Blaine is shouldn’t be judging other people. How about when he told Sebastain what ND was doing for REgionals and then instead of apologizing when they were justifiably upset, he just said they could find a new song. Maybe they didn’t want a new song. Maybe Blaine should have kept his mouth shut or apologized when he gave out the info. Blaine has been shown to have a bad temper. And that doesn’t include how he was in the car with Kurt. He was just gross in that scene and then Kurt had to come to him when that should have been Blaine’s responsibility. Plus he takes up too many songs with his unremarkable voice and too much airtime with his bad acting. I want to see the original characters have screentime (especially the graduating seniors), not Blaine. So yeah, some people really don’t like him and for good reason!

Santana is one of the rudest characters , she said so much rude things including making fun of a handicap becuase she wanted to be with britt, yet everyone excuses her actions because shes santana. Finn has said so much rude things including beinh homphobic. Rachel said rude things and done things just so she could be on top. Quinn bullyed many people, including slapping a girl. kurt was rude. Sam has a temper problem too , hes had mutiple fights. How come we excuse these but when it comes to blaine its always heard of. Blaine did some bad things so doubt, but every character is flawed, maybe not tina though.and too much air time? He doesnt have a plot line besides singing.finn and rachel have way more screen time.

I’m saying that I don’t like Blaine as a character and I think he takes up too much screen time. I also don’t like the whole Finn and Rachel storyline either if that makes you feel better.

        • I will agree that Blaine is not perfect, but what would be attractive about a perfect character? Nothing. However, while Blaine could have had more tact, he was tired to Finn antagonizing him at every turn and after Finn agreed with Sam over Blaine, he got justifiably angry but took it out on the wrong person.

          Blaine has NOT been shown to have a bad temper. If anything he keeps things bottled inside until he explodes. And what Blaine was in the car scene was a typical handsy drunk. But he didn’t actually DO anything to Kurt that upset him. It was his suggestion of losing their virginities that upset Kurt.

          Also, to say that he takes up too much airtime is a total joke. The only storyline he’s had this season was during The First Time. but that was a Klaine storyline, not just Blaine. He wasn’t even on the show for two episodes and when he is it mostly involves him being a prop to Kurt and not his own separate character.

      • LOL I’ve come to the conclusion the over exaggerated facial expressions is some type of musical theater thing. Idina Menzel did the same thing (weird facial expressions) when she was on, as did Kristen Chenowith when she played April Rhodes and so did Curt Mega when he had the lead in “Uptown Girl”. Grant Gustin pulled a couple during his performance of Glad You Came and I’ve also noticed Matthew Morrison having “show face” a couple of times and Megan Hilty’s done it a time or two on Smash. I never see anyone who doesn’t have a theater background do that so I’m thinking it has something to do with stage training. I could be wrong but I think that’s the case.

        • I agree he’s definitely better suited for the stage but I do think he’s gotten better onscreen since he first started. He did have a lot of “stage actor” in him like, with dramatic pauses and stuff like he was waiting for the audience to react. He’s kind of settled in a bit now. I like him well enough but OMG some of the faces he did when he first started during Warbler performances are hilarious. And Lea Michele. I adore her voice but I can’t watch her without cracking up. Jon Groff and Matthew Morrison do it too but they aren’t nearly as over the top with it as some of the others have been. Idina and Lea looked ridiculous when they were performing poker face LOL.

          • I honestly love Lea and Darren’s singing faces. They seem real to me. Those are the kinds of faces you make when you’re belting. I also enjoy Rachel’s ugly crying. I appreciate that Lea puts her performance before ~looking pretty at all times.

            I think DC was a little OTT (only at times) in his first few episodes, but I agree that he’s found his stride and has settled into some more subtle acting. Blaine’s inner conflict and discomfort in PQ were well played, DC (and CC) broke my heart in the best way in TFT, and Blaine’s fight with Sam was delightfully nasty (Blaine goes for the throat when he’s pissed off – but that whole fight was really about Finn, as we later saw). I’m excited for him to get some more real material to work with since I think he does great when they give the character some actual focus (though his background faces are top notch as well, ranking him with my faves for background reactions: Artie, Kurt, Santana, Rachel, Mike).

          • As I said, I love his singing faces.

            When you’re performing on a stage (which is what Blaine is usually doing, which is what Rachel is usually doing), you need to PROJECT your emotions to the back of the theatre. It’s realistic that they would emote very strongly; it just shows that Blaine and Rachel are meant for the stage.

            I was talking about his acting in non-singing terms, anyway. And have you noticed that in more intimate numbers, he doesn’t pull as many faces (BICO, for example)?

      • Wow this thread is crazy! But I figured I’d throw in my two cents. I’m only a casual viewer, but something about Blaine just rubs me the wrong way. Like, he’s really boring, and he seems like kind of a jerk. Also, he takes up waaaay too much spotlight. He sings minimum one time in every episode it seems. He doesn’t have to like, disappear or anything, but if his character could just take a back seat for a while that’s be great. I’m just getting tired of seeing him and would love some more focus on other characters. (Particularly Kurt, Quinn, or Puck. They’re my favs!)

Just like Lea is miles above everyone else and DESERVES a solo (or 12) every episode. That’s why they’re called “stars”.

            Darren can barely rank above Cory in S1 for singing talent, sry2say.

            If we actually had the most talented singers singing, Kevin and Chris would get all the male solos.

            Comment by bluh – March 17, 2012 10:03 AM PDT  
          • Haha, do you pay attention at all? Darren has more solos than Lea, Amber and Naya, the three people who sing the most otherwise on Glee this season. You can add Chris, Cory and Kevin (the real second best male singer on Glee)’s solo count together and they still wouldn’t equal Darren’s count. He needs to sit down and stop solo hogging. That time could be used to develop characters that actually have storylines and personalities.

          • Are you familiar with the term ‘overexposure’? Not to mention Glee isn’t only about the performances, and when in season 1 Lea had a solo almost every episode (heck, in the F13 in season 1, one episode had only ONE song, AND IT WAS HERS) the fandom was complaining, LOUDLY and unitedly. The should give everyone equal song time, not have some characters get one song once every blue moon (Tina) or NEVER (Dave).

    • I hate him because he’s really boring and yet gets to sing every other song on Glee. No entertainment value.

    • Darren Criss is not the only bad actor on Glee, but that does not change the fact that he IS bad. He is definitely in the very bottom rung as far as acting. Listening to his recordings, he’s fine, but watching him sing is painful with all of his herp derp nonsense (he distracted me completely from what was actually IMPORTANT during Cough Syrup, and not in a good way). His line readings are flat, dull, and lifeless. He is a bad actor.

      Consequently, Blaine is a boring character. Like the most boring one on the whole show. He is certainly not *perfect* unless your idea of perfect is robotic, derpy, and dull. He has no development to make him this so-called *perfect* person. There are no perfect characters on Glee, but at least the other ones are somewhat interesting and serve a purpose. Blaine is nothing but a prop, and an annoying one at that.

      Also, him being on Broadway and selling well for THREE WEEKS doesn’t prove anything. He was stunt casting at its best, and the fact that he was only there for three weeks and has an obsessive group of fangirls is the reason he sold so well. If he did a long stretch where people didn’t have such a low, fixed-amount of opportunity to see him, I doubt his numbers would stay the same because most of the reviews from actual professional theatre reviewers that I read called him mediocre at best.

    • Blaines an unapologetic a**hole thats why I don’t like him. He slut shamed Sam and never apologized. His actions in the car scene after Scandles was unforgivable- still no apology(yes I’ve seen the scene and idk what that was but that wasn’t an apology at least not one the situation deserved). He took Tony in WSS even though he knew Kurt needed it for his NYADA application.

      If he were half as flawed/complex as many of his fans try to make him out to be that would at least make his character interesting but he’s not. He’s just a boring a*hole.

    • Stay baffled.

      I hate him. The writers have taken every wrong step in developing this character and the actor’s mediocre acting doesn’t help the matter. Every likable character on Glee is ,first of all, funny and is there to be laughed AT. Pick anyone, you’ll find at least half a dozen of fail!moments played for jokes. I can hardly come up with any in Blaine’s case. He’s a jukebox and a Gary Stu. He doesn’t belong in Glee. No matter how loud the actor’s tween fan base is.

        • Dan was ok in the beginning but he became such a d-bag. His treatment of the women in his life is just the tip of the iceberg, he seems to think he’s god’s gift to women. Then there’s his whole inflated ego making him think he’s the most talented person on earth and everyone who does not agree is just jealous. His little sister was no better but at least TM put us out of our misery by leaving.

Oh fyi, the biggest indication of an inflated ego and unparalleled arrogance is from the character that goes around saying “I’m Chuck Bass.”

          • I love both Dan & Chuck but Chuck is the bigger of the douche bags. As far as I can remember Dan doesn’t use girls as play things literally. I don’t see the issue with Serena. They treat each other like crap but they are usually there when they need each other. And as for Nate uhm didn’t he help him when everyone else turned their back on him. Seriously Dan is probably the most mature in GG. He is just a hipster so he has that whole who give a sh*t character

And that half-assed “apology” was worse than no apology at all. Not to mention Chuck sent in that photo of DB kissing, not caring that it would financially ruin her and wanted her to stay in her loveless marriage so he would have a better chance with her. Dan wants her to be happy, Chuck wants her to be his no matter what the cost.

      • I suspect they added the Deb-loves-Dexter storyline to complicate things more next season when we come back to Deb finally realizing Dexter’s true nature. If she only loved him as a sister there might have been a slight chance she’d do the right thing and arrest him. Now that we’re shown the dept of her love for him the dilemma will be much bigger.

          I like Deb. :3 My mother watched Dexter too and is convinced she and Dex share the same father, no matter what anyone says, so she’s kinda side eyeing that whole love thing really hard. xD We’re both fairly sure the love will crash and burn quickly because of Dexter’s extracurricular activities anyway.

  • The best part of including Jenna Maroney is that, were she real, she’d be happy to see herself in the gallery even if it meant being hated.

    I find it a little ironic, however, that “Glee” is represented by Blaine — the one character I don’t mind seeing in the TVline headlines. Literally anyone else on the show pisses me off, but him I’m okay with. Not because I particularly like his storyline (I’ve actually never seen his storyline, having given up on the show halfway through season one), but because it’s an excuse to see pictures of Darren Criss.

            I guess anyone who doubted Castiel was a polarizing character can look this thread for proof. Still only charismatic characters have such an effect. Weak characters aren’t loved or hated as strongly, they’re just ignored. Once you have a character that manages to incite wars between fans then you’ve stuck gold with that character. So this article is actually a compliment to all whom it features.

          Castiel is not a hammer, there is more to him than what he can do for the Winchesters. Besides he was not useless in The End, or throughout season five when he lacked most to all of his powers.

    • I do! He’s over-used and has become almost like the “sonic screwdriver” of Supernatural. If the Winchester brothers can’t figure something out, they call on Cas and he fixes everything (at least that how it was in the last few season. I haven’t caught much of the new season). And unlike Bobby, Castiel has both unlimited power and knowledge so he can seriously fix anything. And also unlike Bobby, Castiel has few if any emotions which leads to no interesting dynamic between him and the brothers. When season 5 ended, he shouldn’t have showed up again. His role in the Winchester story was over.

I did want to commnent about Cass’s lack of emotion makes him interesting, watching him work out what the humans are feeling. And he considers Sam and Dean friends, even as he worked against them. And the look of total devastation on Dean’s face when he finally figured out Castiel was working against them, I could feel Dean’s pain.

      • THIS!!! So much. It’s not really a matter of hating Castiel for me but more of hating the way the writers used him in seasons 5 and 6. Bobby may have lead to crucial information and he may have had the brothers’ backs but he had finite knowledge and there were many times when he just could not help. Cas was the ultimate get out of jail free card. I would have been much happier if Castiel had died nobly in Swan Song, a fitting death for a SPN hero.

        Comment by Dahne – March 16, 2012 05:11 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I can not think of any time off the top of my head where Bobby didn’t have the answer. =/ Except for not knowing how to save Dean’s soul, but that’s not a typical MOTW thing anyway.

          And most of the time Castiel has not been a Superman in the show. There have been plenty of creatures stronger than him, from demons like Alastair to the horsemen to Eve. Likewise as far as I recall his knowledge has only ever been in the Biblical sense. That seems pretty finite to me.

          Of course all that doesn’t matter, since I think it’s safe to say most Cas fans don’t love Cas because of his powers, but rather because of his selfless personality and extreme character growth. Hence why a lot of vocal fans would be happy with him being human (and I’d guess those unhappy would be because of the angst in “The End” and the belief that Cas has given up enough). Likewise most Bobby fans probably care more about Bobby’s tragic history and gruff personality than what knowledge he may or may not be able to dredge up.

          I find it a little sad when people only consider the characters based on powers and perceived usefulness. As Castiel said, he’s “not a hammer”.

          • I agree with you. I have times when I like Cas and times when I don’t but overall I have no strong emotions about him. I think there are gaping holes in his knowledge and power. I found him interesting as a character because of his backstory. I think the end of the fifth season really gave them an out to let him fade and the writers brought him back and weren’t really sure what to do with him. The end of the 5th season is really where his arc SHOULD have ended. My only complaint about him is that in the 6th season he just kind of felt shoe-horned into the story line. I didn’t hate him though, but I didn’t love him either.

      • Thank you, Melissa! I agree wholeheartedly. Castiel and the entire angel storyline should have gone away at the end of season five. Dragging it (and Castiel) back in was a mistake.

        Honestly, the best thing that could happen at the end of season seven is for Castiel’s character to be killed off. Just like all of the OTHER secondary SPN characters that have been killed off. Get rid of him.

      But I get Ted from HIMYM and Robert California being up here, although I think I’m on the love side for those two characters as well.

        Um. But he isn’t always there to solve the problems or magically heal the brothers. And when he isn’t (as he hasn’t been all season) the PTB just invent another deus ex machina. So I respectfully suggest that this renders your argument invalid.

        • Even if he dies in the finale of season 7, do you really think they would even make a tiny, tiny hint to that? Of course they are going to say ‘he could be in season 4′, they want FANS TO WATCH THE REST OF THE EPISODES THIS SEASON. The Cas fans would riot if they knew he wasn’t going to be in season 8.

    • I thought that, too, but then I remembered that they also have Ted, from How I Met Your Mother, and while I don’t *hate* him, I certainly don’t like him. So I can see how you can be neutral or even a little annoyed by the main character, but still love the show because of a STELLAR supporting cast.

      Comment by Rachel – March 17, 2012 09:28 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • That’s the exact reason I stopped watching! At first I liked the premise – and I loved the other characters, and to begin with didn’t mind Jess – but the more it went on I just found her too preachy, way too judgy, and she forces other people to do everything her way – and then is a complete b*tch if they tell her to back off. She’s the worst! Waaay too full of herself. So, depsite loving the supporting characters (all three of the guys, especially Schmitty! And the two gal pals – they’re both great) – I had to stop watching. Because you’re right – if you can’t handle the main character, and it’s obvious the main character’s personality is NOT going to change – time to jump ship. Very sad though… I miss the other characters…

        • Anyone with ears knows Cough Syrup sounds beautiful. Those kinds of songs are DC’s bread and butter. Best song of the ep, shame it was used in such a crappy way for Karofsky’s scenes.

          LFN was a heavily auto-tuned mess. DC sounds way better when they don’t autotune his voice to hell, just like Lea, just like the rest of the cast (except for the weak singers like HeMo and Harry, who because their forte is dance need a little help in the vocal department, though they’ve improved :D)

          Darren Criss has a beautiful voice, sorry for your troubles. And it just keeps getting better and more versatile. He sounded fantastic on Love Shack, and then brought the house down with Cough Syrup. I’d say Broadway did him good.

          • I happened to find the whole suicide plot incredibly offensive and a disservice to all characters involved, including Karofsky, who I can’t even stand. He was basically used as a plot device for the main characters and to spur on the Finchel wedding.

            I go the point of the number, and I don’t care. I feel nothing for Karofsky; he’s a fictional character that’s been poorly written and his “redemption” was half-assed at best, so I can’t really forget what he did to one of my favorite characters, Kurt, plus pretty much every other member of the Glee club and Blaine. I would have rather had Cough Syrup be about Blaine, not some random plot line involving a tertiary character. Blaine was recently assaulted; they could have focused on that.

            Comment by Ann – March 18, 2012 01:10 AM PDT  
          • Karofsky is one of the most realistic and well-written/acted characters on the show, and for you to say otherwise indicates a very clear lack of empathy or realism.

            On the other hand, I completely agree with you observations on Blaine. Extremely talented, and adorable.

        • Wow. You’d think that being in a starring role on Broadway (a role for which he was sought after by the directors/producers) Darren would receive more credit with fans. But still people are too blinded by their hate to notice that Darren has a GREAT voice. Why do you think he GETS all those songs?

          Comment by Jamie – March 16, 2012 03:39 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • He gets the songs because they sell (or at least they sold last season, when he had an acapella group to back him up). But just because something sells well, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s great. And just because some people don’t think it’s great doesn’t mean they are haters. Things can be good but still overrated and overrepresented.

  • Lately, I love him. Between Dan and Blair, and Dan and Chuck, and, heck, Dan and Serena, a lot of the interesting relationships and stories on Gossip Girl revolve around him. I’m not going to make a case for him being one of the best characters on TV, or even the best character Gossip Girl’s ever had (that would probably be Chuck and Blair in the first two seasons, before they just spiraled into angst-filled, predictable, unhappy people) but these days, 80% of the scenes I actually enjoy watching on GG involved him in some way.

    • This is typical of Supernatural, though. They’ve been catering to the fans for years, before Cas even. And this is coming from a Cas (and Misha, whom is wonderfully charming and funny in person, by the way) fan. I was angry in how he was “killed off”, I personally thought Cas deserved better than that, however it angers me more that they’re bringing him back. Hardly no one gets to just die on this show, which again, is them catering to the fans, which annoys me to no end, and is a big part of the reason why I don’t love it like I used to.

    • Thumbs down. The bases of a Mary Sue is someone that is perfect outside the realm of reality. Blaine is just as flawed as every other character of the show. There are people he doesn’t get along with and he’s had confrontations. Hate him, go ahead. But don’t pretend it’s the bases for factual evidence that his character isn’t a good one.

      Comment by Ash – March 16, 2012 12:21 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Actually, no, he can be considered a Mary Sue. While Blaine has “flaws” they aren’t treated as such–Finn had a problem with him (he was ~jealous of his “being the most well-rounded memeber of Glee club” (ha)) and had to apologize to the guy who *slut shamed* someone trying to support his family, an action that was never treated as wrong and that was never apologized for (instead Blaine got apologized to, because clearly it was Finn’s fault Blaine lashed out and thus Blaine was not at fault for being a judgemental, classist jerk to Sam); after the car scene Kurt had to go find Blaine and apolgize to *him* first for basically not being fun enough, even though he had nothing to apologize for and Blaine’s offense was way, way, way worse but was treated as 1) on the same level as Kurt’s “offense” and 2) on the same level as Rachel and Blaine’s completely consensual drunk kiss in which Rachel did not order him to “Stop” or say “No” even once, and when he did apologize it wasn’t for forcing himself on Kurt–it was for trying to sleep with him in the car instead of somewhere romantic.

        When has Blaine ever been put to task for doing something wrong and treated as though he has? Because he doesn’t have flaws unless they are shown as actually being bad.

        He is a Mary Sue because even though Blaine isn’t a perfect character he is treated by those around him as if he is. Finn called him “the most well-rounded person in Glee Club” and Sugar literally had to give him a big, showstopping reintroduction while poor Tina gets a single mention for her absence an episode after she went missing for goodness sakes. He also fails the Mary Sue Litmus Test.

        • Au contraire mon frere. Blaine’s misdeeds are always framed as wrong. He apologizes when he screws up, and his occasional nastiness is framed as just that: nastiness. Just because he’s not a constant asshole like Santana (love her, don’t get me wrong) or constantly selfish and mercenary like Rachel (also love her) doesn’t mean he’s a Mary Sue. He’s a good guy, but certainly has his flaws.

          Contrast Finn, who outed Santana, then blackmailed her out of the closet. And it was treated like he was doing her a favor. She sobbed in his arms and thanked him for showing her how to be gay (WTF).

            Finn apologized to Blaine because he’d been a jackass for no good reason to him for months. And that scene was still framed as Finn coming to collect one of his flock and lecturing Blaine on being a good team member.

Also, if it was never mentioned on TV, it never happened. Once again, take off your ****** blarren stan goggles for once in your life and just admit that Blarren is an asshole.

            No one deserves to be punched in the face; what a horrible outlook to have.

            Yes, Blaine acted like a jerk. So did Sam. Later they were hugging and celebrating together. OBVIOUSLY we can infer that something happened to get them from A to B. Especially on Glee, where many conflicts are solved off screen.

            Finn’s insecurities re: his talent were clearly established at least in TPPP and definitely in his break down in TFT. It was clear to anyone with a brain that he was acting like a douche to Blaine for months because he felt threatened by him. Blaine is talented; the show has demonstrated that canonically he is a very good singer, dancer, and actor (whatever you may think of Criss’s talents) – he was the lead in WSS, he can keep up with Mike in dancing, he has singing trophies, he was the lead soloist at his old school, he has tons of performing experience besides (summer job at Six Flags, performing at theme parks, gigs at King’s Island for Christmas). Finn’s explanation for his behavior was not at all surprising or unreasonable, if you bother to pay attention and use your head.

            And just because Blaine is a triple threat talent, that doesn’t make him a Mary Sue. Jesse’s a triple threat, Rachel’s a triple threat, Santana’s a triple threat – are they Mary Sues just because they’re talented? Nope.

            Blaine has his flaws, and they’re acknowledged in canon. I suggest you remove your butthurt goggles and maybe you’ll see things a bit more clearly.

  • Of the shows I watch:
    1. Pierce – mehh… generally strong dislike.
    2. Deb – major dislike, not quite hate, although being in love with Dex is leading to hate.
    4. Blaine – I liked last year, kind of like this year?
    5. Dan – Love Dan. Love Blair. HATE DAIR. Team Chair and Derena.
    6. Owen – LOATHE WITH THE FIRES OF HELL.
    8. Ted – Like the least of all the group, but I still love him.
    12. Jess – LOVE! Team Nick and Jess.
    13. Adrianna – Mehh.
    16. Amanda – HATE. Seriously.
    17. Karen – LOVE! Hate Ivy, Team Karen and Derek!
    18. CASTIELLLLLLL!!!!!! <3 <3 <3 I love you, so much! Only 6 hrs left!
    20. Tara – HATEEEE! So happy when she died at the end. Hope it sticks!

  • I’m not at all polarized about Castiel – I love him and can’t wait to see him again, and I think the signs all point to Misha being a regular in S8, which is great for the show and great for the Js, who’ve both said how much they miss him. :-)

    Comment by Kate – March 16, 2012 12:09 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Is this true?! Is there really a chance Misha will be back in Season 8? I haven’t watched Supernatural since season six and I haven’t really hung out in the fandom since then. So, I would really like to know if this is something that might actually happen!

    • If it’s NOT confirmed that he’s back (angel, human, whatever) then this season is the last for me. For me, It stopped being about two poor lonely boys hunting demons and started being about those boys and their FAMILY so for TPTB to rip all that away just for the sake of drama… No thanks. I’l stick to my Star Trek and Highlander DVDs.

      So here’s hoping more Cass in season 8!!

    AS for the nomination, I think Laguerta from Dexter, she’s usually the most hated one.

  • Owen Hunt is despicable. I realized he was an ass way back – when Jackson showed up and kissed Cristina, I thought “finally, they’re ending Cristina and Owen!” what a total dead end that plot was. He is a sanctimonious, pig-headed, close-minded jerk. His arrogance when he shouted “nobody doesn’t want kids!” WOW, Owen, some people in the world actually THINK DIFFERENTLY than you. It also felt a little sexist.

    Anyway, I guess I feel strongly about it.

  • And Ted from HIMYM? Yeah, kind of squeaks me. Sometimes I find him funny, sometimes he annoys me, but I never really see him as the guy that would be the great romantic catch for any woman, so don’t know why he’s so picky. Maybe at the end of the show we’ll find out he was never actually married, and those two kids aren’t “real”.

    Comment by chrissy – March 16, 2012 12:10 PM PDT  Reply To This Post

      • Umm, let’s see. He has severe daddy issues. Blames himself for ruining away from his bullies. Has been shown to be a perfectionist. Cares a little too much about what everyone around him thinks. Transferred from the safety of Dalton for the person he loves. Took a Slushie and almost lost an eye for the person he loves. Is the only person who has ever made Kurt smile the way he has since they met. You’re right. Nothing there to love. Nope.

        • Lol… I am sorry. Almost lost an eye. No. He got a scratched cornea… People get scratched corneas all the time and don’t have to miss 2 weeks of school. As for the daddy issues… All we know is that Blaine’s dad tried to work on cars with him. We have no canon evidence to support that Blaine’s dad actually has a problem with his sexuality. If he did have a problem with his sexuality then why would he let Blaine leave a prestigious school to move to a lesser school to be with his boyfriend? You need to separate what you think from what has actually been confirmed..

          Comment by Lol – March 16, 2012 12:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • Maybe people think Blaine’s father has issues with his sexuality because that was what Blaine said. “he did because he thought getting my hands dirty would make me straight”. Whether Blaine was right or not remains to be seen but don’t act like people are pulling things out of thin air. BLAINE is the one that put the idea out there that his dad has issues with him being gay. He could have been completely wrong about his father’s motivations but that’s how HE took it. I work in a center that counsels LGBT teens who have been kicked out for coming out and I’d venture to say that if Blaine made a comment like that it came from somewhere. No one jumps to that kind of conclusion out of the clear blue. It could have come from Blaine’s own fears and maybe he misunderstood his father’s intentions/motivations but we don’t know that. All we know is that there was a time where Blaine fully believed his father had issues with his sexuality. That HAS been established in canon.

          • You…you know when things happen on the show, that’s not headcanon, right?

            Daddy issues – Blaine: “I think he did it because he thought getting my hands dirty might make me straight.” (whether or not Blaine is correct, obviously there’s an ISSUE with his DAD)

            Blames himself for running from bullies – Blaine: “I ran, Kurt. And it’s something I really, really regret.”

            /I don’t think Blaine’s a perfectionist or is overly concerned with what others think, but I can see why people might interpret his character that way.

            Transferred from safety for the person he loves – Er, see TPPP, where Blaine transferred to WMHS. Blaine: “I did this for me, because I can’t stand to be apart from the person I love.”

            Took a slushie for the person he loves – Sebastian threw a slushie in his face whilst trying to hurt Kurt.

            Almost lost an eye – Santana: “Blaine might lose an eye.” Also, eye surgery, and he was terrified to go under the knife. (that’s not headcanon, btw, Blaine: “Honestly, I’m terrified.”)

            Only person to make Kurt smile like he has since they met – If you watch the show (do you, even?) Kurt most often smiles with real joy when Blaine is involved.

        • What severe daddy issues? He built a car with his dad but the writers never said whether that was because papa Anderson was a homophobe or if he just liked building cars and wanted to share that with his son.

          When was he shown to be a perfectionist or care a little too much about the people around him? Were these super secret episodes only Blaine fans got to see?

          Comment by wtf – March 16, 2012 10:41 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • The point is they obviously have a strained relationship. If Blaine doesn’t feel like his dad accepts and loves him, then his dad is failing as a parent.

            I agree that he is not a perfectionist. I also don’t think he is overly concerned with what people think of him.

            I do think he has other flaws and insecurities though.

          • What about Blaine saying he felt like his Dad only did it so he would butch up?
            I might be paraphrasing. But I remember him telling Burt that.

      • I actually love his voice, especially on cough syrup. I love his character because of how he treats my favorite character kurt. Id rather have him have an actual story line then sing obviously. Im sorry but besides the number of solos he has he hasent done anything for me to hate him. And to say that he steals all the songs is wrong because his season naya and amber have been singing a lot. Naya has sung in every episode besides one ?

I knew there were people who didn’t like Ted Mosby, but I didn’t know he was so widely hated. I guess I’ve never really seen the hate for Jenna, Pierce (well, to an extent), Alex, Jess, Robert California (I’ve seen a bit of it, but most of the hate seems to go toward Nellie), or Chris Traeger.

HER needs change so House has to change to conform to HER needs????? WTF! Women have been doing this to men for so long, it’s darned hard to find a man you love, then try to convince you’re sincere when you say you don’t want them to change, but they’re so intimidated we don’t have a chance!

        You have to admit, Greg House is a bloody interesting character, and let’s face it, there’s a lot of women out there, myself included, who want interesting.

Yet in her last two interviews, Olivia Wilde remained quite tight lipped, and it has been rumoured that her publicist insists that if anyone asks her about being asked to return, they are in violation of a confidentiality contract? Hmmmmmm, me thinks we’re going to see Thirteen one more time……….. (psst I manage the Facebook page “House MD Quotes”….I have my own idea of what should happen in the finale.
