You'd think that after she crashed and totalled the first Enterprise that she'd get shown the door i a hurry. But, noooooooooo. They kept her around so she could total another space ship.


Not to mention she got a cushy-ass chair to sit on when she was on the bridge, but the black guys had to stand all day, every day.

Flappyhead: Mid_mo_mad_man: awfulperson: I have to disagree about Xander in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It seemed that, over the years, pretty much EVERYONE had found some supernatural niche to fill on the show except for him. Buffy's a slayer, so let's make meek little Willow a witch, and her boyfriend a werewolf, and her sister, well, her sister, though she's a mystical key, and oh, let's make Willow a witch lesbian, and oh, let's make Willow a vengeful EVIL witch lesbian, and so on...

They needed someone decidedly UN-super to balance out all the silliness, add a little comic relief.

Loved him till he abandon his bride to be at the alter

That was one of Whedons all time biatch moves. Xander was always the good guy who took his lumps but kept going anyway and we saw a genuine growth in his self-confidence and assertiveness as the show progressed. Whedon completely killed the character arc then desperately tried to revive it over the next 1 1/2 seasons(and failed horribly).

I disagree. Leaving Anya at the altar was a good thing -- for her. An essay I once wrote on why Xander was the best role model on the show: What Would Xander Do?


Someone had to be the Zeppo.


He likes the quiet.

25. Margaret "Hot Lips" Houlihan, M*A*S*H
In the first three seasons of M*A*S*H, Loretta Swit's Hot Lips served as the only intelligent foil to the anarchic Hawkeye and Trapper John. When she sputtered, "You're ruining the war for everyone!" she was doing so as a rational person driven by frustration to say something stupid (in contrast to Larry Linville's idiotic Frank Burns). But after her affair with Frank ended and Linville left the show, Houlihan dropped her nickname, kept her legs closed, got an anachronistic 1970s hair style, and became more sympathetic to Hawkeye's anti-war point of view. Essentially, Swit stopped playing a character and simply appeared as herself (or, at least, the talk- and game-show version of herself). At this point, there was no one left to mount a spirited challenge to Alan Alda's increasingly tiresome and self-righteous portrayal of Hawkeye, and M*A*S*H got more and more self-impressed and smug.

Sir, are you implying that I was an insufficient foil for Pierce's ego? I was a far better challenge than that Burns fellow I heard so much about. He was, from what I have gathered, a pushover and an incompetent boob -- and I assure you, good sir, that I am, *chuckle*, neither.

I gotta agree with Charles here, Hawk. I know we're friends and all, but your sanctimony drove me crazy. Why do you think I was always so keen to conspire to make you look foolish? *smug grin*

She crashed the Enterprise-D twice. First into a quantum filament. Then into the planet.

When Starfleet decided to give full command to a woman, she ended up 70 years off-course.
