Who is the one you hate the most?
(Users Browsing this Thread: )
I find her annoying.
For me, Helen Lovejoy. She's just so bitchy, gossipy, and just all around mean-spirited. I know she's supposed to be a satire on those gossipy church wives, but I just can't stop myself from wanting to strangle her.
TBH, I've been asking myself the same question as the second one you asked. I have a couple possibilities.
-I love The Simpsons so much that due to my high Simpsons standards, a character I would have found mediocre in another show is a character I really dislike in The Simpsons.
-I sort of love to hate her.
There might be more, but this is all I can think of for now.
fuck that guy
Yeah, I hate him too. He was only funny on his (second?) appearance when he says he had a stroke.
I don't like Lovejoy. Voice is awful.
I'm not crazy about Lisa in most episodes, but I tend to really enjoy her episodes.
When characterized well, Lisa Simpson is one of my favorite characters. The only times I dislike her are either when she goes to far, as in "Lisa the Vegetarian" (but she learns her lesson, and I still feel sympathy for her in that particular situation); or when she is used as a mouthpiece for the writers to espouse their political views, similar to how Family Guy sometimes uses Brian
I liked Lisa when she was more of a kid, not the annoying bitch she became
I agree, the writers need to remember that Bart and Lisa are 10 and 8, respectively, no matter what mature situations they find themselves in sometimes
Writers need to do a Season 2 marathon. Perfect balance for Lisa's character--intellectual, but so childlike. Lisa should still have moments like "If Bart gets a present, I want a present" in Marge Be Not Proud, I absolutely hate when she acts as if she's better than the rest of the family.
Scully Era Homer for the common characters.
Sideshow Mel and Agnes Skinner for the lesser characters.
Also, Lisa Simpson is the best character in the series. There, I said it.
I think it was a bad gag, but I don't think the idea was mischaracterization. It was ridiculously overdone, and not that funny to begin with, but I'm fine with the general idea, personally. IMO, they should have cut the time spent on it the first time it showed up, had the decently funny callback with Lisa flashing the "L" sign riding by on her bike, and it would have beeen decent.
that gag was overdone if anything, what is wrong with Lisa saying they are losers when they ARE losers. that wasn't even mean of her, seeing as in the same episode bart threw all of her newspapers on fire. maybe she was mad because of that and took it out on him by calling him a loser?
must we argue about it in this thread as well
We got no food, we got no jobs, our PETS HEADS ARE FALLING OFF!
cat lady, duffman, lindsay neagle, sideshow mel, and 1 dimensional characters
signature down for maintenance
in the meantime,
There are a couple characters I don't really care for. The crazy cat lady has been overdone, I've never liked Cookie Kwan, and I didn't like Manjula either except for the first episode she was in. I also agree that Lindsey Neagle is a weak character.
I personally love Lisa as long as she's not simply a mouthpiece for the writer's liberal leanings. Animal is exactly right in comparing her to Brian from Family Guy; both are great characters as long as they aren't simply liberal propagandists. Even though I love the episode "Lisa the Vegetarian," I don't like that they made her that way, and I hated when she became a tree hugger, and I hated when she became a buddhist. Give me a break, she's an 8 year old kid. She's supposed to be the soul of the show, not the propagandist of it.
Lindsay Neagle, Cookie Kwan, Crazy Cat Lady.
Lindsey Naegle ! Urgggghhh....
About Lisa... Even if her characterization can fail sometimes, I'm thankful of all the great episodes in which her unique personality inside the Simpsons-universe shines. Don't hate her because of what she has become in later episodes, love her for the terrific character she was in many classic episodes.
I actually find Lisa less annoying in seasons 14+. i don't really notice a difference, but something about her in the later seasons makes her a litle more bearable for me. I think she is slightly a better character in those seasons.
