Anyone else feel this way about Toponga?


I'm watching "A Very Toponga Christmas" and man is Toponga getting on my nerves. Did she get on anyone else's during this ep?

reply

Nah, she didn't bother me. I thought her demands were just filler for Christmas.

YESSS!!! at least during this episode.

i had a problem with her usurping the traditions. and here is cory acting like it is his last Christmas before marrying Topanga [or anyone for that matter!] and his 'let's meld our traditions together!'

i liked her in general, and I loved her against lauren and Rachel, but her behavior was slappable.

Reading the paper can really be depressing. Mr. Dithers fired Dagwood again.

reply

Definitely. I love Topanga, but she really pisses me off in this episode. The Matthews are kind enough to allow her to spend an important family holiday with them and she insists on upholding all of her traditions at their expense. That's so rude!

Please don't feed the trolls.

I know. Holidays are stressful enough, but she really pushed boundaries and buttons. If I were Cory or Any I would take her aside and tell her time it down.

I don’t often find dear Topanga all that likable after season 5, and this episode is one of the reasons why. Granted Cory's silly behavior and antics, along with some of the other characters, got annoying in the later seasons. In fact, almost every character became gimmicky by the end of the show — not just Looney Tunes Eric — so really I found myself annoyed with most of the characters post season 5. But in Topanga's case, I thought she became the more demanding one out of all the main characters.

In addition to the Christmas episode, there was also that time she, Rachel and Angela unjustifiably kicked Eric and Jack out of their apartment. Sure, you can say Rachel was entirely to blame for that one, however Topanga's selfishness and basically over-the-top shouting in this episode became all too familiar in the show (for the record, I’m not coming from where the meninists are coming from). And don't get me started on her whole "I can’t believe in love if my mom and dad don't.” Maybe that was realistic, maybe the writing was lazy.

Anyhow, her demands were never as irritating and inexcusable as they were in the Christmas episode. But hey, she was going to get what she wanted as long as she had someone wildly obsessing over her like Cory was, haha. Now having said all that, I liked her character.

reply

Nope, not at all. I grew up with this show and always thought she was really cool.

reply

I hate her name.

Who the **** is called 'Toponga'? I could never find a person with such a stupid name attractive.

reply

She is acting like a typical teenage girl that age
