I hated Luke, that's when the show really jumped the shark.

Eeeeew! Who doesn't like Carol???? She's my favorite, after Mike. And I like Luke too! I thought he was great on the show. He's my 3rd favorite character!!!!! I will say that Chrissy shouldn't have grown up in a whole Summer break!!! They should have kept her small, and had the actress grow up on screen, in REAL TIME. That would have made better stories for season 6.

I couldn't agree more. Otherwise, it would've just been Mike picking on Ben, and that would've gotten old. Carol was on more equal footing w/ Mike, so she could give back to him a little.

As for Chrissy, I didn't think she was so bad, but I def. don't think she should've become 5 overnight, lol. I agree they should've done that in real-time.

Another Carol fan here

My least favourite character would have to be either Chrissy or Luke, no doubt they both had their moments (Chrissy's imaginary mouse friend Ike and the episode where Ben & Luke organize the annual psychiatrists' dinner come to mind), but they both didn't add much to the show, as another poster said, they should have had Chrissy grow up in real time. As for Luke, well, you just KNEW the end was nigh!
