Writing a great character takes time, effort, passion and a lot of focus and detail. The process of writing a good character is time consuming and quite frankly annoying; could this be the key as to why annoying characters are usually written so well? A lot of times to balance out a show you need a voice of reason (the person who always manages to know exactly what to say and how to fix a problematic situation). Unfortunately, for those of you reading this list, that is not the type of character you will find here. This list consists of breaking down some of the most annoying main characters on television; both past and present. Before we do that though, let’s find out what makes a character annoying; simple traits such as being overly focused, over analyzing, generally used for comic relief but can also be used for drama, terror and causing unnecessary grief. Every show needs someone they love to hate and history will show you that they end up being some of the most talked about characters long after that show has gone off the air. Depending on the situation, they can be the type of character that every time they show up on screen your skins crawls, or their annoying catch phrase makes you throw your hands up and take a walk, the fact that they sometimes serve no purpose and yet, they still get as much screen time as the important characters.
Who do you think is an annoying main character on a TV show? Chime in below after you go through the list.
10 The Whole Pretty Little Liars Cast
9 Gemma Teller – Sons Of Anarchy
8 Henry Mills – Once Upon A Time
7 Andre Lyon – Empire
6 Wes Gibbins – How To Get Away With Murder
5 Sookie Stackhouse – True Blood
4 Sam Winchester – Supernatural
3 Ellen Parsons – Damages
2 Andrea Harrison – The Walking Dead
1 Hannah Horvath – Girls
UGH! The frustration that builds up while watching the self righteous, conceited, and shockingly oblivious Hannah Horvath (the main characters in Girls) is almost unbearable. This character is nice enough and in the beginning, was a young 20-something who was exploring life outside of college and in the “real world”. After season one it becomes clear that Hannah is more so immature and spoiled than exploring. She seems to be a bad friend as she makes every problem about her; and her complaints are endless and usually about things that can be quickly fixed. Plus, who else is convinced that Lena Dunham is basically playing herself on Girls?
