Sure, cliff hangers get us talking but there's nothing we find more commendable (and oddly satisfying) than when a show can take a character we loathe to our very core and somehow, slowly, make us love them.
The redemption arc, as it's often called, can be a tricky one to achieve, but when it's done right it's a sight to behold.
This isn't a matter of characters we love to hate; these are those blood boiling, cursing at the TV folks we truly despise.
And yet, by series end we somehow find ourselves wishing they were our best friends or on occasion fictional boyfriends.
