I don't imagine this thread will get a lot of responses, but I can't keep these annoyances to myself anymore! When I was a kid I thought Uncle Joe Carson on PETTICOAT JUNCTION was hilarious, but now he just annoys the heck out of me. I never find his antics funny and the constant sameness to his character, lazy, opportunistic, juvenile, etc. just makes me want to see Kate bash his head in with a skillet. And then there's Lew Marie, Ann's father on THAT GIRL. As a kid I loved him and thought his attitude toward Don was very funny, but now I think he is just obnoxious. Although there are some nice, tender moments with him, most of the time he is an out and out bully with everyone and potentially very harmful to those he professes to love. So often I want to see Don, Ann and Ann's mother stand up to him and reject him outright, just to take the blowhard wind out of him. Any others?
