Carol, She was a straight up, slutty witch.

Eunice: Shallow cheat.

Leslie Walker: Psychotic cradle robber.

I think Carol was hated the most. And how can you not hate her after what she did.

LOL!!!! One of my FAVORITE scenes in the whole series!!!! Just great!

HATED El Puerco. Hated most of season 4. Major character assassination of many beloved characters.

Yes, indeed! Maybe we should also discuss which character was most let down by the writing? But, don't get me wrong, 'Soap' is one of the best written shows ever.

Forgot about Ingrid. She was mean too. You know its funny. Eunice was very shallow but I thought she was hotter than Corinne. But when Eunice cut her hair, that was it for me. Didnt find her hot anymore.

They did write Eunice as being very shallow in season three, and insincere. Seasons 1 and 2, she was slightly aloof, but insecure, and likable.

I loved Eunice until she started treating Dutch badly. WHY did the writers do this? WHY? Dutch/Eunice were a FANTASTIC couple. There could have been so many other directions to go in with Dutch and Eunice. Also, I wonder if Sal Viscuso, Tim Flotsky, wanted off the show? I loved Corinne and Tim.

That's right! With years to tell stories at their chosen pace, the writers were too quick to separate couples and dump characters. Imagine a scene where the young couples of Danny & Elaine, Dutch & Eunice, and Tim & Corrine went out for dinner. Think of all the possible dialogue there!

LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Danny and Elaine. I actually loved all the original cast and couple so much. Darn it, I even loved Jody and Carol AT FIRST. Just because there seemed to be genuine caring there between the two of them. Burt and Mary were the best. I LOVED Jessica and Chester. Chester was a hound dog. But..he did love Jessica.

The change in Carol's attitude and behavior was very abrupt. I didn't buy the season four storyline at all, with her kidnapping Wendy and going on the run to all those weird locations. It's impossible to picture Rebecca Balding on screen doing that.

IN fact I keep forgetting about Eunice..........like that she exists in the show...

EUNICE and Carol are my least ...they kinda look similar like the twins in the show with no plot ... even tho they are not twins. honorable mention: ...................................... INGA SWENSON . god that voice is annoying.....and she is just.... ughhhh I do not like how she talks down to Jessica

Definitely in agreement with you on this.

Carol. I hate what she did with Jody.
I don't like Eunice either, it wasn't cool see her cheating on Dutch.
