Frank was my fave character on the show...for reasons ive specified elsewhere, and I never cared much for Charles, however, I will say one thing: The episode where Charles is upset by people making fun of stutterers was more than just a gimmick , DOS is himself a serious stutterer and the episode was very close to his heart.

Didn't know Stiers stutters. But remember its the writers who thought of the great stuff Charles says and does!

Jesus Christ Best Man, we get it, you hate Charles.

David Ogden Stiers was a horrible actor and the writers were responsible for anything that made the character remotely interesting.

Frank was awesome Charles sucked.

We get it, we get it, we freaking get it.

While I prefer the first three seasons of the show, I do like Charles better than Frank. Frank was funny, but after awhile he just became the poor misfit loser who was always picked on by the popular jocks. Charles at least gave back as good as he took it. I think he was a much better adversary for Hawkeye and the rest than Frank was.

Ok Homer. But realize Charles was written to be able to make good comebacks on Hawk and Beej. Stiers couldn't for sure do this to others in reallife on spur of the moment!

Do you know David Ogden Stiers personally?

Here is how my bf describes it........Frank bounced better off of Henry Blake better then he did Potter. Blake was as out there and loony as Frank. Potter was a little more educated, and stricter, so he and Charles bounced off of eachother better.
Yes in some ways I believe Linville was the better actor, after all he even said in an interview that he had to work at how smarmy Frank was.
I liked Charles tho, because he was able to spar with Hawkeye and BJ so well. But as for comparing them, I cant, they were never on a show together, and they werent playing the same parts either. So it would be like comparing apples and oranges, just cant do it.

Well, of course, but, that particular episode was written for DOS because he wanted to promote understanding for people who stutter

(James Earl Jones does too, BTW)
