ABC (ended 2010)
Maybe it's because Charlie died (may he rest in peace) that I dared not think about how terrible Kate's character has developed recently. You guys bring up a good argument. I find myself skipping over her dialogue when I DVR the episodes just based on the fact that her character seems more like a nuisance rather than someone who I'd enjoy watching.
Other than how damn hot she is, she affords very little room for the rest of the cast to have a real dialogue with her character. The writers need to dramatically reasses her role otherwise she'll just be another character we can't stand.
And to the families of the victims that LOST their lives on the September 22, 2004 Oceanic Flight 815, I give my deepest condolences.
|They stopped developing Kate around early season 2 and sacrificed her to the shippers. That's all she's good for right now. To keep the horrible triangle going. And what kills me is that she's constantly being shoved down our throats on top of that. |
Either give the woman some depth and actual growth or leave her in the background with Steve.
I completely agree. I won't even get into her relationship drama, but possibly even more annoying than that is her never-ending mantra: "Run!"
"Hi, I'm Kate. I'm on the run. Childhood friend? We're great, but darn it, time for me to blow up the alcoholic and run! Oh, pretty horse, that's my cue to run! Hi, Mom! Oh, shoot, on the run some more. The marshal took the plane? Gotta make a quick run to the bank. Goodness, you're a nice man. And, bonus, I love you, your mom loves me, and the marshal agreed to stop chasing me if I stay with you. Wait, taco night and babies? Eh... not really brilliant, but I've come to the conclusion that the best decision at this point would be to drug you and run away before you get a chance to have any say in it. Hi farmer. Bye farmer. Crap, I'm stuck on an island, how do I run now? I know, I'll get around as much as possible by volunteering for every conceivable trek through the jungle, drop down the hatch, and rescue mission there is! That's like running, right? Good. Gee, maybe there's something really deep behind my running that the writers are alluding to... Maybe I'm even running because I'm trying to run from something in myself that I can never escape and have to run constantly to try. Having absolutely nothing to my character in the past and present and possibly future besides that and a tiring love triangle for four long seasons counts as adequate character depth, right? It must."
I absolutely hate Kate...everything about her character to the actor who portrays her. If they told her to act like an annoying, manipulating, FAKE skank than that &U!*) deserves an Oscar for her performance! I swear anyone who loves her is in love with her and spends more time looking at her boobs than listening to the nuclearexcrementfuming from her big mouth. Show would be better without her character - period. Next worse character for me has got to be Michael... i'm glad he left
I don't outright hate her, but I do dislike her. Definitely one of my least favourite characters. I liked her in season 1, she was okay in season 2, and after that she started to annoy me more and more with each season. Ironically, I started to like her again in season 6, but it was too late at that point; the damage had already been done. =P
