ok, though I don't see that make one character or the other more deserving, except for you personally. Just because a character has a higher degree of morality doesn't make that character more deserving than another(unless that is the case for you because you like Abe better). A good character is one that grabs the imagination and there are just as many morally bankrupt characters who do that...probably more lol

I've always considered the characters of Abe and Lexie to be supporting characters rather than main characters.
I really don't think this story is about them either. Besides being a vehicle to champion Higley's pet cause it will simply end with a rift between Abe and Lexie and yet another excuse for Lexie to become romantically involved with some other guy again. Knowing Higley she'll probably have Abe cheating too, thinking that will excuse Lexie's conduct. Abe has always been one of my favorite secondary characters and he deserve so much better.
I think it will also be an excuse to promote Chelsea being all grown up and a young career woman, so Higley can pursue round two of Chelsea and Dr. Dan thinking it will make it less icky.
you like him supporting your favorites so much (which is what he's spent years doing), he shouldn't be a leading character? That is your idea of the character deserving more?? ouch
There are main characters and supporting characters always have been always will be, it's as simple as that. Not everyone can be lead character. Yes I like some supporting characters in supporting roles, supporting my favorites or not.
supporting characters and lead characters change depending on the writer and I don't see that just because one is usually supporting, or leading such a position is set in stone. That certainly hasn't been true on DOOL over the years
As far as the character of Abe being more deserving I was referring to Lexie and her tendencies to chase after other men. Abe does deserve better than Lexie. And just like so many other characters James Reynolds deserves to have Abe well written and true to character instead of as a catalyst for Lexie to cheat again.
I don't seen how Lexie's history of chasing after men makes her a 'less deserving' character and why don't all the characters on the show deserve
to be true to character? Lexie didn't start out a cheater and what does staying true to character have to do with being supporting or lead? If Abe is being written as a lead character, he is no longer in character?
I never said Lexie was "less deserving", I said Abe deserved better than Lexie and he does, the reasons why are not that hard to understand. I have said before that all characters deserve to written true to character.
In my experience, villains are just as popular as heroes.
I have said before that all characters deserve to written true to character. I don't know what being written true to character has to do with being a supporting or a lead character or if Abe is being written as a lead character, he is no longer in character. You tell me, since those are you words and not mine?
If you want to pick a fight with me you might want to actually discuss what I've written and not the things you've decided to twist or interject.
since when is disagreeing with anyone's point of view on this board considered picking a fight?
you said that you'd always considered Abe a supporting character and then went on to complain about how his character deserves so much better than the story he's got now, in which he is being written as a lead. It sure sounded to me like you were complaining that should not be the case...not just because he was being written out of character but because you're assuming what the story was going to be about something you'd rather not see. You seemed to be equating the two things...him out of character and him in this story where he is a lead. If not, great but that was what I got out of your post.
