What character do you hate the most and why?

  1. Definitely Julia. I can't see one redeeming quality in her. And apologies to Felicity Huffman but I don't think she's all that attractive either.

  2. He’s honestly one of my favorite late series additions of any show. Those characters are usually forced and don’t do much for me but Kenny was very well written imo.

  3. Gertrude Moon. I get that the point of the character was to be insufferable, but she was still a bit much. Actually, Simon was definitely worse.

  4. Gertrude overstayed her welcome by half a season. Having her stick around for so long was a forced way to build tension between Niles and Daphne after they finally got together. I find myself skipping her episodes often

  5. The way she tanked Cora and Marty just boils my ass every time. More Cora would have been awesome on its on, but it also would have meant more CAM WINSTON!

  6. Simon is horrendous. And also his accent doesn’t even make any sense. Why’s he from London if the moons are from manchester

  7. Ya, Simon is the worst Moon. At least Gertrude has some funny lines and the great episode where she's feuding with Niles and Daphne's neighbor's kid.

  8. Ann Hodges, the insurance adjuster that breaks her leg and lives with Frasier for an episode. The writers really twisted the knife when it came for making the most obnoxious character possible.

  9. Julia Sweeney did a GREAT acting job, then. I used to hate these episodes, but now I admire JS’s acting in this role. So, now I prefer to watch this over the Greek Wedding episode. I can’t stand the mom or the actor portraying her. I find her totally annoying.

  10. The Greek episode really annoyed me because the accents didn’t even sound like they were Greek and every Greek stereotype found it’s way into the show. I get that Frasier is a comedy but a dash of reality would’ve actually helped!

  11. The character played by Zooey Deschanel (Roz' cousin I think?). I hate her so much that I can't even watch that episode.

  12. Reading through your comments, I realize there are a good number of unbearable characters. I’m glad Frasier leaves Seattle, though maybe he’ll find awful people everywhere!

  13. I actually thought she pulled off the Cynical post-adolescent pseudo-worldliness of the late teens/early 20’s pretty well. Her character was obnoxious, but she was meant to be obnoxious. One of the writers probably had a kid who had just come back from his freshman year of college as the inspiration for her.

  14. Simon Moon. Easily. Aside from just being an obnoxious character, his "comedy" cock-er-nee accent is incredibly grating, especially given that Daphne's family are from nowhere near London. For any Americans trying to understand why this might be an issue, imagine a Texan portrayed with a stereotypical "Noo Yoik" accent with no explanation. See also – Clive from "The Two Mrs Cranes".

  15. Julia. But it seems like the writers on season 11 hates her too. In the first episode, Roz immediately comes back after quitting because of her and acts like nothing happened, and in the second episode, every other character is offended by her awful behaviour and Frasier kicks her out. She’s never heard from again. Brilliant.

  16. The Cafe Nervosa owner is worse. Kicking out her two best customers for a loud, obnoxious singer that doesn't fit with the style of her own shop

  17. Same! I skip this episode because of him, which is a shame because I love Frasier and Niles breaking poor Stephen’s heart, for they shall not be the everyday stalwarts they had hoped to be …

  18. I never really know how to answer these questions, because there are several characters who seem like genuinely bad people who I’m still glad were part of the show. I mean, Bulldog is a sexist creep, but the show wouldn’t have been the same without him. Bebe is a snake, but she’s hilarious. Carlos and the Chicken were pretty big a-holes, but without them, Frasier isn’t prancing around in his towel singing “three little maids”.

  19. Not that she’s at fault for Frasier being an idiot but Faye was clearly the better option and her existence ruined that relationship.

  20. Came here looking for this. I HATE women who treat other women like crap and kiss up to every man. Women like her are why we aren’t running things! Lol She irritates the hell out of me. Faye was the obvious right choice out of those two.

  21. I’ll throw in a weird one. Chopper Dave. I hate literal one-joke characters. It’s such a terrible, hacky sit-com joke, it has no place in Frasier. Bulldog evolved out of his single joke, they gave up on Chopper Dave as a bad job. Just an occasional reference.

  22. Reminds me of the loud guy in the Dilbert cartoons, except those were made a few years later (even the newspaper comics with Loud Howard are post-Chopper Dave).

  23. I figure they eventually realized that every time he yelled they would have to come up with a way to explain why. Otherwise people who just tuned in wouldn't be able to figure it out

  24. Lorna/Lana, I hate her crass behavior and uncouthness. I don't find her the least bit of funny. Also Roz's sister Denise is really annoying with her passive aggressiveness there is not really anything to counterbalance her passive aggressiveness.

  25. The main saving grace of Lorna/Lana is, of course, that she is played by the inimitable talent of Jean Smart…and that counts for a lot, if you ask me! 😝

  26. I would’ve been a bitch to Roz’s sister. And really rub her nose in her husband leaving her! Telling her off. Like ur husband left u since ur a miserable, judgmental, passive aggressive douche. She was so mean to Roz who didn’t deserve it.

  27. Really only one. That twit lady visiting with Niles that did the "G speak" thing. I loathe and despise her. I'm glad she only appeared once and very briefly.

  28. I’m a big Star Trek fan, but almost all of his episodes bothered me. The two exceptions were Star Mitzvah and I think Roz a Loan (when he was telling Frasier how to say bye in Klingon). All of his other moments were really off-putting, and it bothered me a lot.

  29. Came here to say Noel. The creepiness is supposed to be part of the whole character but it crossed a line. Like “you’ve never worn that shirt on a Tuesday before…” NOPE.

  30. Yeah he’s very hard to sit through. I’m like where are the bodies buried, Noel? Were you going to wear Roz’s skin suit while you watched Star Trek?

  31. Simon. Anthony LaPaglia won an Emmy for playing him, which says a lot about Americans I think. The “British” characters on Frasier made Dick van Dyke look authentic.

  32. I liked her other brothers, played by Richard E Grant and Robbie Coltrane, but Simon was just too over the top boorish. There was no subtlety to his character.

  33. I don't mind Kenny so much, although he seems so out of place in every scene. lol I do mind Kirby. The storylines he's involved in are also so random and like Frasier is being forced to deal with the younger generation so the show can seem hipper. lol IDK, but I don't like it.

  34. I do like the episode where they’re trying to win his approval so he can get them into a legendary wine cellar though

  35. Yes!!! I forgot about her too. She was like a bitchy version of Niles and I love Niles. He made you love his character even with his flaws but Mel ugh 😤

  36. Oh god, yes. She was awful. She was so judgmental, and kind of an inverted snob. The way that she treated Daphne was awful. She tried a bit harder with Frasier and Niles, but I couldn't warm up to her at all.

  37. Charlotte. I can’t stand how she scams Frasier out of all that money and then he spends the final episodes of the show falling all over himself for her. I do like the episode where they stay at that strange house, but other than that I generally skip the Charlotte episodes.

  38. I don't remember if the show alluded to it or not (haven't watched the final season in ages) but people act like she's the one that got away or something and I don't get it. She was very milquetoast to me and didn't make much of an impression.

  39. Gertrude Moon for being an abusive insufferable miserable shrew who rarely if ever got consequences for her actions. There HAD to be a better way to create tension for Niles and Daphne after they got together.

  40. What trenchant criticism. Move aside Voltaire, step back in the shadows H.L. Mencken, there's a new kid in town. One can only wonder how many hours Bowl_Pool sat in the glow of his computer screen before his trembling fingers sprang to life and pecked out this chef t'ouerve: "I Hate Frasier Crane."

  41. What trenchant criticism. Move aside Voltaire, step back in the shadows H.L. Mencken, there's a new kid in town. One can only wonder how many hours Bowl_Poil sat in the glow of his computer screen before his trembling fingers sprang to life and pecked out this chef t'ouerve: "I Hate Frasier Crane."

  42. Patti Lupone's Greek aunt. It's one of the few episodes I skip every time. So loud and obnoxious and over the top acting from her

  43. Bulldog. That dude commits some very serious assaults and people just wave it off. It makes the characters around him, especially the men who hand wave it, seem less moral too

  44. I’m an older millennial and I knew a lot of people exactly like Jen Doyle. Most of them have grown out of it in the ensuing years. Kirby was just an annoying airhead gimmick.

  45. Bulldog- he’s so freaking aggressive when he slaps Frasier in the head. Dudes going to cause a TBI

  46. I don't like Charlotte. She seemed very pathetic to me. And I don't think she fit into the show. The only time i liked her was in the episode Detour.

  47. Kate Costas. Honestly felt like they were trying to have whole Sam and Diane vibe with them for the short time she was around, and honestly, that just doesn't work with Frasier as a character. It was like being like "can we have Sam and Diane" and the Frasier writers were like "we have Sam and Diane at home." Frasier Crane and Kate Costas were the Sam and Diane at home. Also, does Frasier make me laugh sometimes? Yes. But he is also the worst main character in his own show. I really don't like him (and he was my favorite character in Cheers so that was pretty unfortunate). It wasn't even the writers being bad with that either, the writers for that show were great. Frasier just wasn't likable in that environment.

  48. Who was the woman that co-starred on the radio show about art with Frasier and did that cringy review of A Streetcar Named Desire? Her.

  49. Daphne's annoying alcoholic brother. No offense to the actor, who does a great job at playing an annoying drunk, but annoying is annoying, whether or not it is intended for comedic purposes.

  50. Ronnie (Martin’s girlfriend) never did anything for me. There’s a lot of characters ITT that are disliked because the actor/actress did their job well and made you dislike them. But Ronnie felt extremely bland.

  51. Ronee, some of the more forced attempts at humour late in the shows run. Feels like they tried to make her work since she was ultimately ending up with Martin but has there ever been a less charismatic actress playing a charismatic character? The wig was also off putting

  52. I get more upset about Ann Hodges than I do problems in my own life sometimes. Like I actually get a heart rate spike when I remember the episode that she stays with Frasier

  53. Not the character in general, but the last appearance of Donny Douglas in The Ring Cycle. I think the writers did him wrong for a cheap laugh and tarnished the character.
