So in this game the first poster picks a tv character and rips them to shreds, but then the next poster has to find something legitimately nice to say about them in the next post, or vice versa.

An example :

First Poster : "Phoebe Halliwell is such a skank, can she ever keep her damn pants on?"

Next Poster : "But she does provide support for millions of San Franciscans daily through her column"

and then a new character is picked.

So the game would be finding nice things to say about horrible characters, and nasty things about likable characters.

I'll start.

"Will Lana Lang ever shut up about her damn dead parents! Whiny twit.

Great idea, booklad!

I don't watch Smallville. That means I'm either the least qualified to respond positively to Lana, or the most qualified, depending on your Lana position. I'll try, since I gather that most Smallville fans are unlikely to post anything even remotely positive about Lana.

Rebuttal: Lana
Lana has such beautiful, shiny hair. Despite her lack of parental guidance, she eats so healthfully! Perhaps her shiny hair results from said healthful diet.
*****************************
Yeah. Sorry, I know it's a poor way to kick off this thread. I'll start out with my unpopular (on TWoP, anyway) Kate opinion--it should quickly attract a negative rebuttal to move this baby along.

Statement: Kate
Lost's Kate is intelligent, resourceful, independent-minded, and appealing. Despite her criminal past and fugitive status, she's truly a Rennaisance woman and a necessary character on the show.

This is fun!

Rebuttal: KATE Kate is an attention loving, pain in the ass. She bungles around in the jungle, gets in the way, sticks her nose where it doesn't belong and stops the show dead. I wish the ocean would swallow her whole.


Statement: DR. JAMES WILSON (House): He is a sensitive, caring, deeply committed Oncologist with nice hair.

Oh, this is hard.

Rebuttal: Dr. Wilson Dr. Wilson is a borderline selfish prick with no rewarding qualities and he treats his collegues and friends like shit.
That's the best I could do.


Statement: Meredith Grey (Grey's Anatomy) Meredith is a selfish bony harpish bitch who treats her friends like shit, cares about herself, and is borderline stalkeresque around Dr. Shepard, who IMO is truly committed to Addison and he only slept with her in the finale to shut her the fuck up.

Oooh, I'll take this one on. My unpopular opinion (again, at least on TWoP) is that I love Meredith Grey. She's a very realistic character.

Rebuttal: Meredith Grey
Meredith Grey is a strong, compassionate (and because of her capacity for compassion tends to be emotional) woman who is giving and supportive to her friends, but who unfortunately fell in love with the right person at the wrong time. The timing was not her fault. Over the course of the season she became disillusioned with Derrick, accepted the fact that he was treating her like shit, and truly gave him up to Addison.

Derrick continued to be a selfish prick (my take is that he's a good guy who hates himself for what he did to both Meredith and Addison, and his self-hate is manifesting itself in his boorish behavior--a natural progression, not character assasination) by taking Addison while still pursuing a relationship with Meredith. Like any person who fell in love with the right person at the wrong time, Meredith finally succumbs when her love interest tries to force a moment into being the "right time."

Oops. That was a little long. Heh--I guess I feel more strongly about this than I thought. Er...sorry.

Statement: Santino Rice
Santino Rice is awesome. Some of his comments and "confessional" observations may have been a little harsh, but Santino seems like he'd be a lot of fun to hang out with as well as a true and loyal friend. His flaws are simply a little more obvious than other people's flaws are.

He's also very talented (not one-note) as evidenced by his final collection, his dress for Suchin Pak's MTV Movie Awards appearance, and other creations that have been in the press lately.

Two planks of wood with wigs could act circles around them. Draw teardrops on "Samwood" and duckylips on "Deanwood" and the illusion is complete.

Rebuttal: Dave Lister Lister is a scruffy, ambition-free lager lout whose socks are so encrusted with dirt and filth that he must spray them liberally with deodorant and beat them several times with a toffee-hammer in order to ensure their "wearability". From this we can conclude that he is too terminally indolent to wash his clothes. (I still love you Dave!)

Statement: Jimmy McNulty (The Wire) McNulty is a prideful, arrogant, entitled, skirt-chasing passive-aggressive drunk. I remain unsurprised that he has few allies in Baltimore City PD.

Ellen is a free spirited and endearing woman who, sure, cannot claim the title of "most faithful wife", but also dearly loves her husband and is only trying to see that he survives in their harsh new situation. And hey, if she's also riding his coattails to the top, who can blame her?

Statement: Billie Jenkins

Billie is a strong resourceful young woman, who without any formal training, can more than hold her own against the legions of the underworld. (ha, try not to combat that one).

Billie Jenkins is a maggoty-necked moron who abuses her powers, her birthright as a witch, the generosity of those who are willing to take her in, and the eyes of everyone who's misfortunate enough to have to look upon her nasty hair. Also? Not that bright.

Statement: Buffy Summers

Buffy Summers is a selfish, megalomaniacal bitch who lies to everyone around her, abuses the law in the name of duty, and frequently puts the world in danger even more than it already is because she can't fathom the concept of the existence anyone other than herself. She's also really bony and has loser friends and even worse boyfriends.

Jim has a crush on an engaged woman. He should just get over it and move on.

Statement: Rory Gilmore

Rory is a stuck-up, egotistical spoiled brat with horrible taste in men. She'd rather let a man verbally abuse her than be single. She's an awful best friend. The only time she's ever had to be held responsible for her actions was when she stole a yacht, and even then she got off with community service. Everyone loves her for no reason.

(Have fun with that one!)

Rory was, and to some extent still is, a kind, thoughtful young woman with a sharp wit and a genuine love of books and learning that many TWoPers can admire and relate to!

*I'd just like to say for the record that I LOATHE who Rory's become over the past few seasons, so this was a real struggle!

Statement: Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd

McSmirky, McBland or just plain old McAss would be far more appropriate. He has no distinct personality traits or characteristics other than an apparent inability to wipe that arrogant perma-smirk off his face, is an adulterer who continues to string along Meredith even as he claims to be 'working on' his marriage and has proven himself undeserving of either of the two women whose feelings he's playing with. Plus, I don't even think he's physically attractive...his hair looks like its dripping with enough grease to fry a pan of bacon and did I mention that damn constant smirk?!

He's so pretty. And he has good hair. And nice eyes. And he saves people's lives by digging around in the brain.

Statement: Felicity Porter
Felicity Porter is ambitious, adventurous and doesn't let the hurts of her past control how she lives her life. She is unafraid to make mistakes and follows her heart into all things. She loves her friends and is loyal and selfless with them. Plus, her hair was ten times better after it grew out after the disastrous short cut.

Cuddy lets her guilt override her professional responsibilities, allowing House to do whatever he wants and make each patient ten times worse before he finally figures out what's wrong. Also, with that hot ass, she should have gotten some in two seasons.

Statement: Catherine Black (Millennium)

Catherine Black is batshit insane, leaving her husband after he saved her from a kidnapper and killer, because in her mind, working for a secret group is the same thing as having an affair.

Was a ray of common sense and logic in a crew who were sometime too wrapped up in their own sense of morality and too subject to their emotions. She made the hard calls, said what needed to be said and even raised a few kids in the bargain.

Statement: Dr. Samuel Beckett

A pretentious know it all, who jumped around sticking his nose where it didn't belong and blamed all his misfortune on "God". Also, Sam? If you wanna leave your wife, there's better ways than jumping into an untried potentially dangerous experiment in space and time travel. Idiot.
