I see countless bashing of Howard and his minions but Fred for some reason seems to be immune from the shit storm? I like Fred and was just wondering why? Is it because he keeps his mouth shut? Is it because he doesn't do bullshit like the wrap up show, ect? Is it because he has a nice wife and family and doesn't whore them out for more media attention and money? Also what are some other people that you don't hate from the show? My vote goes to Mr. Daniel Carver, one of my faaaavorites. Out of the show though, besides Fred, I can't think of any of the underlings who aren't wig-sucking loser assholes... Actually I do like J.D. but he seems to have moments when he is just a douche-bag. I actually feel like Ronnie is pretty cool too, like someone who is just a victim of Howard's jealousy and show. His angry character schtick was annoying but he was always good for a laugh. Maybe I'm just high and being nice... The Fred acceptance is really curious to me though.
