I thought I was the only one, Con and Author. The only film I thought he was any good in was the "Truman Show". :D


Yes, that's why I think he has potential in a serious roll.

I Love You Phillip Morris was good. Not his usual stuff.

I love Jim Carrey only in the serious roles, when he's not doing his 'faces'
I liked Truman show of course, but Number 23 was also very good ^_^

Another one which drove me crazy was Counselor Troy on Star Trek. They should never have asked her to cover up her accent. It drove me crazy!! :x

In an interview she said she went to a lot of trouble creating a different accent (as she was asked to) and then along came her mother, who couldn't have sounded much more American. :lol:

Counselor Troi was an useless crewmember. Her only task there was stating obvious. She is good at sensing wrath in a furious Klingon, who is swearing and destroying furniture at the moment. But she became better, when she got rid of the revealing dresses and enormous wigs, and started to wear a regular Starfleet uniform. It was not only her clothing, but the character itself changed too.
But the most annoying character from the world of Star Trek is Will Riker. He's disgusting and I hate him. Earlier shaved 'Baby-face Riker was quite okay though.
Lwaxana Troi...I didn't like her on TNG- she appeared there too much frequently. On DS9 she seemed to me quite better. I was quite surprised, that
Spoiler: show
she married ODO!!

I must say, I am much more into TOS and DS9, than TNG. I have a TNG avatar though, cos Conspiracy is EPIC.

No bad words about lovely Deanna please! :orcs-whip:
Counselor Troi for me will forever hold the title 'Woman with prettiest set of collarbones on TV' ever! :romance-heartbeating:
Completely unrelated of course i'm hopelessly in awe of her actingabilities and besides that she is absolutely essential for the plot etc. of course as well,also,very much so...right?! :liar: :P

Sorry, I understand Deanna has certain physical qualities, but, as a straight girl I cannot properly appreciate it.
