    Surprisingly, Tony. After disliking him intensely during Season One.. I really feel for him after his accident.

    I feel a bit sorry for Sketch as well, but she's my favourite character regardless.

    Well after watching season 2 episode 3 I can say, that Sid is by far the character I feel most for. After losing your girlfriend and dad in the same day geez I'd feel like somebody had stabbed me in the face and poured salt into it. to top it off we get Tony, the guy whos got no memories and doesnt have a clue about much, helping him!! This shows Sid really is in a bad state.

    well Sid, definatly after Ep3. But i think I feel sorry for all the characters.

    eg, Tony: After S1 finale, He cant do things properly and he's not himself anymore.

    Michelle: She has all her issues with her Mum and probably feels abondoned etc...

    Chris: His Mum has deserted him, He's obviously not the brightest and so probably doesn't have much to look forward to

    Cassie: She's anorexic, with so many self-esteem issues

    I could go on for longer... I

    Is that a joke? He's been such an irritable bastard all year, he needs to get over his issues. I felt bad for Tony this series.

    She did phone an ambulance, thats a stupid reason, she was shocked, imagine if you had to witness someone dying in front of you and then lets see how you would react, the first thought is to run away from it all so that you can get your head straight and think that it never happened, however i feel most sympathy for Jal this season.

    All of them, they are all mucked up in their personal ways and I think it's hard to judge one over another... I mean apart from Maxxie and Anwar... who ain't had much screen time and not much happened to them, the rest have really been put through the stages this series and defo feel bad for them!

    i feel the most sympathy for Jal. Chris got her pregnant, they agreed to have an abortion, but now that Chris is dead, Jal will have a tough time deciding whether she should give her dead boyfriends child up or keep the only thing she has left to remember Chris!

    I think throughout the show's run the person who's had the most raw of a deal has to be Sid. Sure Tony did get hit by a bus, but Sid sat by his bedside for however-long and that will have an effect on you. I was most happiest for him when he had his relationship with Michelle. The two of them would have been good together, but that's normally how life is. There are people, manipulative people like Tony and Effy, who can do so much with the power they possess and they either squander it or abuse it on the people closest to him. I personally thought Tony needed a swift kick in the bollocks when he tried to get Michelle back after all he had done. It got bad for him, but I guess you can consider his getting hit by a bus karmic retribution. You also have to admit that Chris had alot to deal with; first a deep affair with Angie, and then falling for Jal and inevitably dying like his brother.

    Overall, they all in one form or another were screwed up, Maxxie Cassie and Anwar included, but that's life I guess.

    Is it just me, or did anyone else lose sympathy for Cassie earlier in Series 2, especially in Chris's episode. First she made Sid feel guilty that he was "doing what he wants", then she goes around shagging basically everything that moves, and messes with Jal and Chris's relationship, not to mention throwing that house-warming party out of the blue. So, she basically decides to do what she wants, whereas Sid is made to feel guilty about doing what he wants, at least thats what I got out of it. But then again, Sid did start to act more and more like a whinging tosser towards the end of that series.

    Anyway, in the first series I felt sorry for Sid the most, as his dad and mum split up, his getting bad grades in school, the thought that he caused Cassie's attempted suicide, his feelings for Michelle, the way Tony manipulates him (and others); I mean, thats a whole lot of crap thrown in his direction. Series 2 was a different story, as I too felt sorry for Tony after his accident and what he had to go through to try and get better.
