Not to mention that Amy was abusive to her boyfriend/husband and treated him like shit.I see a lot of the ones I hate were covered (everyone in Girls, Lucky, Stabler, assorted Family Guy characters, Lisa Simpson, etc). I like unsympathetic protagonists when done right. Peggy Hill is an example: she's an idiot know it all, but really amusing when in the spotlight just to watch her get ripped to shreds. Lucky, on the other hand, has none of this. Peggy, for all her faults, is at least a good wife and mother. Lucky is just there. His friends are more interesting than him.
While Marie from Breaking Bad is generally loathed, with good reason, she does at least advance the plot. Her heart is in the right place, but damned if her head isn't firmly wedged up her ass. I still don't like her.
Amy Pond was mentioned, here's my two cents on her: she was a great character in the first couple episodes. The Beast Below and Victory of the Daleks (underrated episode ruined by the new Dalek design) had her serve a purpose. She had a perspective the Doctor lacked. This insight saved the day. That said, agree to disagree all you want. She became useless as her run went on.
