    Randy Pearson - 'That 70's Show'

    From Redditor u/TheB-Span:

    I'm gonna take Randy Pearson from That 70's Show before someone else comes in and snatches him up.

    From Redditor u/TRex-n_Truex:

    The last season of That 70's Show reminds me of the CBS year of Family Matters, we're just not going to acknowledge the existence of it.

    Connor - 'Angel'

    From Redditor u/eiridel:

    Conor ruined just... everything. For everyone. Forever. I didn’t mind him as a baby and Wesley’s turning against the group because he was doing what he thought was correct, that was beautiful and his guilt was so heavy and real, but when teenage Conor came back... everything with Cordelia...

    Who on earth thought that was a good idea? Who thought that weird incestuous coupling killing off a fan favorite who has been there and beloved since the pilot of Buffy was a good idea?

    Glee. That time when they removed all the Glee club kids and replaced them with people whose names I don’t even remember.

    April - 'Gilmore Girls'

    From Redditor u/ifmusicbethefoodoflo:

    April on Gilmore Girls. I get they needed an obstacle, but come on, a love child?

    I don't dislike the character, I dislike how she was used purely as a plot point.

    From Redditor u/CoolRusty:

    The interns on Scrubs who had become the focus of the show. Although it's best to look at the last season as a failed spinoff rather than part of the original show.
