Yes. That’s my column.
Kidding, I’m ever so slightly above outright clickbait. You know what I wasn’t kidding about? Vinny Chase stinks out loud. Yeah I said it. I mean, can you think of another show where almost every major side character is so universally beloved? I’ve heard of Drama guys. I’ve heard of Turtle guys. Hell, I’ve even heard some weirdos who prefer E, and that’s fine and dandy, but you know what I’ve never heard? Someone say that Vinny Chase, the character who the entire series is based around, is their favorite character. No one. The man has no charisma. He’s got a weird frumpy body that makes it borderline not believable that he’s a movie star. What’s the most memorable Vinny Chase line? I’m drawing a tremendous blank because almost everyone one liner you think of is Ari, Drama, or Turtle.
I was inspired to write this blog because our pal Owen ranked the worst characters from the series and somehow omitted this big doofus Vincent Chase.
How do you not include the worst character on the show? Huge oversight Owen. I thought you were an intellectual.
And yeah, the more I think about it, that’s where this take is going. Vincent Chase is not only the worst protagonist in HBO history, he’s also the worst character on his own show. The facts are the facts people. If you too are a man of wisdom and smarts, follow me on twitter @harry__mac. If you disagree, keep it to yourself.
