Rebuttal: Jeff Winger (Community)
Ultimately, Jeff cares about his friends. He was willing to risk his reputation and avoid a fight with the bullies just to maintain his friendship with Shirley. He helped Abed see the error of his ways when Abed took over the chicken finger operation. Sure, Jeff avoids effort. That's just intelligent. If something can be done equally well with less work, why bother taking the harder route? Jeff is clever, and he cares. You can't ask for anything more in a friend.

Statement: Michael Westen (Burn Notice)
Michael is so singularly focused on finding out who burned him and why that he neglects his friends and family. He selfishly expects their help on his quest, but avoids helping them. Furthermore, his fake southern accent is terrible.

I thought I would start this game up again. But since I don't watch Burn Notice regularly I will do the best I can with this.

Rebuttal: Michael Westen (Burn Notice)
Yes but he is cute and I like his sunglasses. (sorry its the best I could do)

Statement: Brick (The Middle)
He is such an annoying kid! His constant whispering everything he says is so annoying and of all the 3 kids he is the least interesting or funny.

Rebuttal: He's related to a less crazy version of Jan Itor from Scrubs which makes him automatically a little bit fun.

Statement: the nameless Elisabetta Canalis character (Leverage)

She threatens the lives of the team to get her way, orchestrates ridiculously elaborate double crosses, practically stalks her victim/opponent, and doesn't have a name. She somehow magically has unlimited power and resources but somehow she needs the Leverage team to do her work for her. She talks like a Bond villain. And she shows up to provide exposition that usually isn't even necessary.

Rebuttal: A cool nickname like 'The Italian' is way better than a real name anyway. She's smokin' hot. And she's confident enough in herself and her position that she can make Nate Ford squirm.

Statement: Ellie Bartowski-Woodcomb, Chuck

Despite being a respected medical doctor, and having been tough enough to raise her brother almost singlehandedly, she's always treated with kid gloves and is the last to find out about the secrets and conspiracies around her, a factor the Ring successfully exploited. She has the dear love of her husband, brother and their circle of friends, but for some reason does not get the proper respect due her.

Ooh, great one.

Rebuttal: when she does find out their big secrets, she handles it and tries to focus on the future not the past. She saw her Bakuladad get shot and still had the wherewithal to tail Shaw and stage a plan to free Sarah, Casey, and Chuck. She knocked JOHN CASEY out with a frying pan - and we've seen how hard Casey is to knock out. And she's a neuro-specialist, which means she'll probably figure out the Intersect tech and/or be intersected herself at some point, which will only make her more kickass.

Statement: Michael Westen, Burn Notice

He's smug, snippy, he takes advantage of his friends, he acts like he so very bored that he's so much more of a badass than anyone else, he lies to everyone, he insists that the ends justify the means, and he squints too much. Way, way too much.

Rebuttal: all of that is very true. But in the end, he really does help people and do good.

Statement: Londo Mollari, Babylon 5.

He is full of alcohol and arrogangance. In his shortsightedness, he helped unleash a great evil on the galaxy. Even when he realised what he had done, he took no actions to counter it.

Rebuttal: That's true, but almost every sci-fi series has a character who unleashes a great evil on the galaxy, so by comparison, he's only mediocre.

Statement: Carly, General Hospital

She's amoral, selfish, ruthless, has stupid ideas and plans, vengeful, and judges others for things far less despicable than she does, and eveyone praises her for her courage and love.

Rebuttal (Carly, GH): Nobody gets hurt more often by her crazy plans than she does. She invariably loses out on the things she wants most. Even her beloved son Michael has rejected her. When she called out Alexis for being after her husband (Sonny), Alexis was all insulted and superior and 'We're just friends, but you don't understand friendship, slut!', while having these moony teenage daydreams about him.

Statement: Catelyn Stark, Game of Thrones

She's a bitter, judgmental, hard woman who has tormented Jon Snow his entire life, although his only sin was being Eddard Stark's bastard son (and being brought to Winterfell as an infant to be raised there). She plays favorites among her children, and could care less about her duties as lady of Winterhaven. And, simply because Littlefinger identified the dagger as Tyrion Lannister's, she's assumed Tyrion is guilty of the attempt on Bran's life, without any other evidence or even thinking about how easy it is for a dagger to change hands, not to mention Tyrion not being stupid enough to use such a distinctive weapon (or the fact that he's the only Lannister who's been reasonably nice to any of the Starks).

Rebuttal: Catelyn Stark (Game of Thrones)
Far less crazy then her sister. Also, the way she manipulated everyone in the inn to turn on Tyrion Lannister was pretty clever, even if it was a dumb thing to do.

Statement: Sokka (Avatar the Last Airbender)
Despite living in a world of super powered benders Sokka manages to hold his own nicely. The one time his lack of power gets him down, he goes and does something constructive, improving his skills by learning to fight from a master swordsman. He is very clever and creative, coming up with most of the group's plans. He was involved in the invention of both hot air balloons and submarines. He took his Dad's instructions to protect and village and his sister seriously. Despite being one of the universe's favorite chew toys he doesn't let it get him down and become all emo unlike a certain other character. Instead, he takes it with a sense of humor.

Rebuttal:(Sokka, Avatar) He is a halfwit who obviously hasn't noticed that killing the bald kid would be for the best in the long run. Heck about the only thing he has going in the plus colum is that his Live Action self is played by Jackson Rathbone.

Statement: Dr Nicola Tesla (Sanctuary)

He's a bisexual sociopathic stalker. He lives in a delusion of vampiric superiority over beings who are either his intelectual superior or pretty much walking bricks. Add to that a severe liquid dependancy and it's a wonder he ever gets to leave the woodshed.

I kinda wanna give this a try, so I'm gonna start a new statement.

Statement: Blaine Anderson (Glee)

He's a boring, almost two dimensional character who was only created to be a mentor and, later, love interest to Kurt Hummel. He seems to have constant character whiplash. He can go from doting, wise mentor one episode to clueless, slightly unsympathetic character the next. He hasn't had enough personality to have people really give a crap and he's pretty much the bitchboy to Kurt and the two episode enemy of Finn Hudson. He hasn't done anything outside of 'being there' for Kurt.

Rebuttal: Blaine Anderson (Glee)

He really is cute in a preppy sort of way, and very loyal to Kurt, and willing to put up with a fair amount of crap from him. And he sings pretty well.

Statement: Mr Finch (Person of Interest)

Incredibly smart, remarkably resourceful, bears his evidently serious physical injuries with equanimity and although withdrawn to the point of antisocial, dedicates most of his time to trying to help people he doesn't even know, sometimes at great risk to himself. Gave John Reese a purpose and is starting to actually care for him. Richer than Croesus. Snappy dresser.

His job is super creepy.

Statement: Phineas Flynn (Phineas and Ferb)

Phineas is a great male role model: he's creative, unselfish, thoughtful, and fun. He's rarely seen without a smile on his face.
