    Myra was a great character. She was one of my top 5 characters. Although people didn't like her much, she was pretty great. Hot and funny. But maybe a little bit overrated. She didn't seem to grow much (as a person) during the show.

    True, but I personally think that she didn't need to grow. She was exactly as she was supposed to be right from the start. Kinda like Luanne from "King of the Hill." Actually, that's a bad example. Luanne actually got WORSE as a person after the first season, and her recovery back to square one took the next 3 seasons.

    Her perkiness was not what killed me, she was just plain psycho, I mean who has everything in their room decorated like their boyfriend, that's just a little strange for me. Plus, she had spy cameras and tried to get both Steve and Laura arrested. I believe Stefan was right when he said the movie Fatal Attraction was about her. lol.

    Myra was a sweet girl but did go overboard. I mean with the decorating of her room and the spying on Steve after they broke up.

    you know, i just found out Michelle Thomas passed away and all the details. (i'm glad i did a search of the boards to see if it was discussed). too bad her character was known as super perky and annoying, but she played that part well!!!

    i liked her character better as Justine on the Cosby Show, though.

    she was a sweet person. she and Malcom-Jamal (Theo) dated until her death.

    rest in peace sweetie.

    and what's this talk of perky lips?!!

    Her perkiness was acknowledged as an aspect of her character and thus never really annoyed me.

    What did annoy me was how the writers rarely rewarded her virtue (she was the only character who liked Steve for who he really was) yet went overboard in slamming her over her paranoia of Laura, who at times really was trying to steal her man.


    LOL Laura never tried to steal her man. She's the one who put Myra together with Steve in the first place. It just shows how loopy she was to actually think Laura wanted Steve, whom she couldn't stand.

    Aside from Steve Urkel, I would say she was my other favorite character.

    I liked Myra when she was the sweet and intelligent girl that Steve was attracted to and never has any anomosity with Laura. What made me hate her was when she showed her true nature in season 5 and again in the middle of season 9. During that time, Steve found out what it was like to be Laura when Myra was stalking him to no end and kept accusing his friend of stealing her man. In Season 6, he agreed to go steady with her for a while, which helped revert her back to the sweet and intelligent girl he was attracted in Season 4. Myra went downhill midway of season 9, when she pretended to dump Steve as an attempt to get him to dump Laura and stay with her. That attempt failed and she went psycho after that.
