I’ve heard a lot of complaints about Carl but I never had a problem with him. For me hands down it is Zack from The Strain on FX. The little shit seems to be actively working towards the end of the world just because he can’t come to terms with the fact that mommy is a vampire.
He causes the death of one main character, puts his father in mortal danger over and over and walks off with his mother in the last episode even though it is obvious she is not longer human. It doesn’t matter how much you talk to him he just doesn’t get it.
This kid wouldn’t last 10 seconds in the Walking Dead. He would run up and hug mommy zombie.
So who are your annoying kids? I’m mostly talking about the characters not the actors but if there is someone who’s face you just hate go right ahead.
Oh god yes, though technically he’s now an adult. Now he’s just another whiny self-centered adult on that show, joining Sanchez, Flynn, Provenza, and, to some extent, Raydor. With Brenda Leigh being the prototype.
For other shows, I’d vote Axl on The Middle. Sometimes I want to slap him. They can build monuments to his self-centeredness.
I second this. I liked it during its first run but somewhere along the way I grew to hate all the female characters, including Mrs. Huxtable.
The twin boys on Everybody Loves Raymondjust seemed stupid and (I know it’s mean to say) particularly homely. The girl was annoying at first but got a bit better by the last seasons. Even worse was Patricia Heaton’s interaction with them. I’ll watch pretty much any rerun of the show unless it’s from the first season. Once they cut down on stories about the kids and we didn’t have to see PH in “mom mode” all the time, things got a lot better on that show.
I don’t watch the show but catch enough in pro mos and when I’m someplace where others are, but every time I’ve seen the girl adopted by the gay couple in “Modern Family” is an absolute brat. Every time.
