It's Unpopular Fannish Opinion Time again!

Since the latest iteration of this game has turned my Tumblr into YET ANOTHER hate-on-Gillian-Darmody festival, I think I'll have better luck here.

Give me a fandom, and I will tell you at least one unpopular opinion I have about it.

(CAVEAT, since I need to spell it out: THESE ARE OPINIONS. THEY ARE UNPOPULAR. THEY MIGHT BE WRONG, IN YOUR OWN OPINION. Okay with everyone?)

I liked Kevin.

I know, BRoTP fans like to hate on Kevin for not being Barney and for being accepted into the group so quickly and for being the designated Nice Guy. If they're not alleging that he's a complete sleaze for sleeping with one of his former patients. But I feel that first of all - Robin *deserved* a Nice Guy after all the bullshit that Don and Barney put her through, and she's not somehow a bad person for dating a guy who used to be her therapist. And as for his being accepted so quickly, well, he's funny and fit in far better with them than Zoey.

And what really won me over with Kevin was his reaction to her pregnancy scare/can't have kids thing. He was calm and understanding and talked to her about what she wanted - everything that a person would want out of a significant other. He's even (mostly) secure enough in himself to hang around with TWO of his girlfriend's ex-boyfriends, one of which he knows for sure she isn't over.

See, I liked Kevin too - Kal Penn did a great job with him, and he was smart and a nice character!

Most of fandom's hate's gotten refocused onto Barney's quasi-fiance.
