Lately, Ive been loving House. But every time Omar Eppss Eric Foreman shows up, I cringe. He just annoys me. Plain and simple. Ditto Katherine Heigls Izzie on Greys Anatomy. Shes a mosquito buzzing around my ear.
We all come across characters who get on our nerves. Not the ones created to irritate — remember Steve Urkel on Family Matters? — so much as those who offend our personal tastes. They grate on our sensibilities, sometimes so acutely (David Caruso, CSI: Miami) they are dealbreakers. We cant even watch the show.
Ultimately, its highly subjective. So heres my list of annoying characters, with apologies offered in advance.
