Friday Night Lights’ 9 Most Annoying Characters
Friday Night Lights had one of the most critically acclaimed casts of a lot of teen drama series, but that doesn’t mean all of the characters were likeable. There may have only been five seasons of the show, but that did not mean there was no opportunity for new characters. In fact, Friday Night Lights took a big risk when it swapped out a large number of the original cast for a set of new stars with Coach Taylor’s transfer to East Dillon. Between recurring stars, newcomers and brief appearances, there were quite a few characters who rubbed audiences the wrong way. Check out the 9 most annoying characters on Friday Night Lights.
9. Ray “Voodoo” Tatum
Seeing as how they made Ray “Voodoo” Tatum the villain, it isn’t surprising that his character was annoying. While Matt was trying to adjust as number one quarterback after Jason Street’s accident, Buddy Garrity brought in Ray “Voodoo” Tatum who was displaced by Hurricane Katrina, but he made it really hard to sympathize with him. His attitude alone was enough to hate the guy. Everyone had Matt’s back and Voodoo was just about as annoying and cocky as someone could be, so thankfully his turn as a Dillon Panther didn’t last long, just long enough for everyone to hate him.
8. Buddy Garrity
Buddy Garrity had his moments where he was funny and a pretty good character, but there were times when he was really hard to stand. As the rich, privileged leader of Dillon, Garrity was just too entitled and blinded by money to see the true problem sometimes, and then of course it was discovered he had cheated on Lyla’s mom multiple times, making him much more detestable than before. The worst of all was when he cheated with Tyra’s mom, he then gave her money to keep her quiet, nailing the lid on the coffin that his character was frustrating, angering, and disgusting. He might have redeemed himself over the seasons, but it seemed he just kept screwing up, as when he had lost Lyla’s entire college fund but didn’t tell her.
