11 Hated TV Characters That Were Actually Supposed To Be Likable

Some characters capture our hearts right away, and some, even though they are meant to be good and have no arc intended otherwise, we end up disliking them. The creators probably thought to make them relatable or to make us sympathize with them, but that doesn’t always happen. Instead of being the “poor guy,” they end up being the bad guys. Take a look at such hated characters that were supposed to be likable.

1. Ross Geller from FRIENDS- There are many who love the character but disliking him is a popular opinion too. Some find him to be controlling and way too possessive.
