Quote from: Sebastian Cobb on January 27, 2024, 03:22:44 PMMichael in Lead Balloon, but generally most characters played by Tony Gardner, I'm sure he's fine but he's almost always playing that superficially nice but very pass-agg guy and I really can't stand him.
Quote from: Tony Tony Tony on January 27, 2024, 10:55:28 AMMention in the George and Mildred/Man About the House thread brought memories of a this horror...I know his character was written as an obnoxious precocious little shit as a device in order to humiliate George, but as a youngster I hated him with a passion. Even his name, Tristran, pissed me off. You got any comedy characters that engender fury in your life?As another example I give you Terry from Whatever Happened to the Likely Lads. Boorish, self centred, lazy and miserable.

Quote from: chip on January 27, 2024, 05:36:36 PMLoudermilk. I hear it gets good but that first ep was just too much sardonic, mean-spirited arseholery.
Quote from: Tony Tony Tony on January 27, 2024, 09:48:41 PMWhilst I could never bring myself to imagine Michelle with Renee it was the other way round with him and Mimi. Her introduction as a sexually desirable character meant Allo Allo lost any sense of. realism for me.
Quote from: Shaxberd on January 27, 2024, 11:13:45 AMApril from Parks and Rec. She has some good moments but I found it irritating how the show wants to you see her as grumpy but lovable (like Rosa in Brooklyn Nine-Nine, another Michael Schur show) but she's frequently just a bully. A less cosy show could do good things with a character who's pointlessly hostile but it sits weirdly in Parks and Rec's nicey-nice world.
Quote from: Video Game Fan 2000 on January 27, 2024, 10:20:53 PMre: the realism of "Allo Allo" i think maria broke the suspension of disbelief more because she was actually stunningly attractive whereas the sexiness of the rest of the cast was stereotypical hon he hon he hon voulez vous coucher avec moi "sexy french person". having someone who more Hammer Horror sexy rather than dirty postcard sexy, what a sexy person would be in the world of Noels House Party, just made the unreality of it worse.
Quote from: Tony Tony Tony on January 27, 2024, 09:48:41 PMPut me down as an extra vote for this - I think she was called Mimi in the show. Whilst I could never bring myself to imagine Michelle with Renee it was the other way round with him and Mimi. Her introduction as a sexually desirable character meant Allo Allo lost any sense of. realism for me.
Quote from: ajsmith2 on January 28, 2024, 04:08:32 AMTotally agree, she's ultimately just a completely unlikable dick. Acerbic gothy teenager is fine as a starting point for a main character but she barely develops over the 6 years of the show and she's also always cloyingly held up by the other characters and the show itself as this amazing person worthy of our love and respect while she's hanging upside down in a coffin going 'god Jerry your such a cunt, btw I just murdered your firstborn haha '.
