    I could make a joke about your attention to detail (), but seriously, it's 'bad' only in that we are discussing sitcoms (I would call QC unquestionably one of those), so familiarity with all other sitcoms is beneficial.

    I imagine each of the gay characters may well have coupled up either at some point or as of now, but the original premise was single straight female and her single gay male roommate (who was the comedy's straight man, get it?), and their two best freinds, a single gay man, and a married (crazy rich) straight woman.

    From where I'm sitting, he seems to really like all his characters, which is good. (I could name another webcomic I stopped reading because I realized the author viewed all his characters with a strange, smug contempt.)

    Some appeal more to me than others. I tend to groan when--Brun, is that her name? the comically stupid woman who pulled a harpoon on Clinton--is in the spotlight.

    Im sure he does, I was more talking about his Melon forever! author comment. He seems to really enjoy writing her for some reason. And Cik, Family Matters is a sitcom where the fat black cop from die hard is a family man in chicago (Still a cop, different character aside from fan theories) with his loving family. He has a next door neighbor of a super smart nerd named steve urkel who causes all sorts of problem, generally by accident. Here is a clip compilation

    Melon is largely a filler character. Most strips involving her are very basic visual gags that do not connect to ongoing storylines. They are presumably quick and easy to write and produce. Jeph very clearly uses Melon to give him time to work on other ideas, in a way he used to use the Angry Bird, guest comics, and other random interludes (all of which have declined greatly in frequency). I find that regarding the general appearance of Melon as a sign that 'the actual storyline will return shortly' makes her much more palatable.

    See I came here to say "oh hey, it's the worst 'character' in the series". Glad to see we're on the same page.
    I'm one of those people who ruins X-stalt/epic games for everybody who's just wanting to play legendary figures.

    And Roko's not even surprised anymore, just exasperated.

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.
