    sorry you lost me with Anya.... shes one of the best

    but I will agree with you Dawn
    and I wouldn't put Riley at the worst but the show could go without him and no one would shed a tear.

    My own list would the demon from the episode Anne... I think this is mostly the actor than anything else. He was in Angel and Firefly and its like he's playing the same character in all 3.

    The Annointed one.... If ever there was one character on this show that was useless its this kid.

    Yea Anya is one of the best for me too but i do agree with you about Rily. He was so annoying. Dawn isnt a worst for me because she got better in the end.


    I agree 100% with rockworm. The Annointed one was so stupid.


    My personal list would be included everyone at the initiative, Kennedy. Principle Wood, and Warren.

    Andrew is by far the worst character on Buffy.

    Anya? You must be kidding!
    The worst charcter was Riley for the pure childish nature he had - being jealous of Buffy etc.

    You lost your credibility with Anya. And I don't get all the Dawn hate. Sure she's whiny, but if Iwere in her place I'd be whining too.


    Kennedy, Riley, and Warren on the other hand...

    YES. He is an awful actor, why did they repeatedly cast him in the Whedon shows? Thank God he never made an appearance in Dollhouse..

    Anyway, I vote Kennedy. Awful, in too many ways to describe.

    Rona is also annoying as hell. Riley is like an entertainment vacuum or something, as soon as he becomes the main focus, I lose all interest.

    I also despise Ben. How could the awesome Glory be linked to someone so dull?!

    I like all the characters, but my least favorite would have to be either Riley or Kennedy.

    My least favourite character is Warren because he killed Tara, but the character I find the most annoying is Principal Robin Wood. I hated his obsession with killing Spike.

    I almost said him... Like I was sitting here thinking about it and I just can't decide if I like him or not... I guess he's so minor that I don't really need an opinion on it.

    Ah, nevermind. I watched Older and Far Away last night and for 42 minutes I hated them both.

    1. Boring farm boy Riley


    2. Dawn--even if you ignore the whiny they just never developed her character enough. She went from a mere McGuffin to a mere sideshow.


    3. Adam--boring villian: his name really should've been "humdrum."


    4. The First--started out kinda scary but quickley became el-lamo lame boring dull etc.


    5. Kennedy--didn't the writers notice there was no on screen chemistry at all between this character and Willow?


    6. Wesley--not only a pansy but a creep too when he messed up Angel trying to help Faith. He was much better on "Angel" though--until Angel season 4 when they made him too much of a gloomy Gus.

    They were originally gonna give him a bigger role in season 2, but the actor who played him was growing too fast, and since vampires don't age, it would complicate things. So, they had Spike kill him before he could actually do anything.

    Oh yeah, and a vote for Riley from me

    Wesley is beyond amazing in Angel S4! Especially when he's with Lilah. I loved them two together, so much more interesting and watchable than the incredibly dull circle of neverending boredom that is Wesley/Fred.

    sorry you lost me with Wesley... he's one of the best characters. His arc is one of the best of both shows. Making him the "gloomy gus" made him that more cooler.
