Why are you making me choose between Brenda and Valerie?

For me, it was tough choosing between Doug and Luka.

Going from Michael J Fox to Charlie Sheen is quite the downgrade.

Never watched 90210 - Was too young and never caught reruns - but the way that Tiffany STILL has Tori and Jennie pressed for literally no reason TO THIS DAY? Clearly she was the main character LOL

Like they are ANGRY!!! And they can never say why or for what reason. Meanwhile several of her other former co-stars are regular guests at her home for her cooking show, including 90210 people so it's TRULY them.

Many actresses that were on the show shared that they were horrible to them. On top of my head: Jessica Alba, Hilary Swank, Vanessa Marcil and Emma Caulfield.

I'm kind of surprised Parks and Rec didn't make this list. I feel like one of the few people who didn't hate Mark, but I can't deny that bringing in Ben (and to an extent Chris) greatly improved the show.

I think that adding Ben and Chris brought the show to whole a new level and that's when I really started to love it, but it's a bit strange that Mark Brendanaquits was never mentioned again ever

it's bc the actor didnt want to be brought back so he told the writers to just squash his character. they were open to having him come back/do cameos in later seasons

That’s sad, I wonder what happened that made him quit and choose to never go back
