Re: Who is your most unfavorite character? I would love for all the character-haters to assume the role of executive producer for a moment, and consider the following: 1. Vanessa Ferlito came in and said she didn't want to renew her contract. How do you deal with that? Does she just exist in some nebulous vacuum, where in some bizarro universe she might get re-hired by the NYPD after being fired for evidence tampering? Better to give her character finality. 2. Ditto with Melina Kankaredes. No, they sent her to another city, much like Liz Vassey went to Portland in CSILV. But they gave her closure. 3. Bear in mind Anna Belknap had to undergo the "pregnancy" treatment during taping in the last years. I would imagine her character was written rather uninterestingly to minimize her discomfort of being on the set. I don't hear anyone complaining about Emily Proctor being rather dull and absent on CSIM. Oh, and by the way, didn't she shoot Edward Furlong earlier this year? What exactly is so uninteresting about her? The complaints range from "A is too boring" to "B overacts" to "C has no chemistry." Instead of complaining so much, why don't you explain to me how all these people should act? OK, maybe this is not a Barney Miller-quality ensemble, but it's a heck of a lot better than many of you portray. If you're going to blame someone, how about the directors, who are dictating the tone and action of the episode.
