Sarah is not only amazingly funny. She goes a lot beyond that. Throughout all the episodes, even Nova Com, she has the remarkable ability to be aloof. Alex, Cal, Connie, and other such characters get swept up in things. Characters like Mandy, Wooton, and Bernard are often bothered, bemused and befuddled by situations.
Sarah is neither. While everyone else is running about setting up madcap court room or confusedly fascinated by Nathaniel's riches and odd behavior, she's calm, sarcastic, and above it all. And annoyed by everyone else who can't hope to ever be like her.

I love Sarah. She's a total snot, I know. (Sorry for my bluntness. =p ) But characters that are meant to be that way, and portray it well, are some of the best characters out there.
She doesn't have anywhere NEAR as much depth as Liz does, but I still love her all the same.
I would like to hang around with Sarah. She seems to tolerate everyone else, speaking matter-of-factly and being sarcastic. With a a sot of I'm-in-control-and-everyone-else-is-acting-weird attitude. (And generally, she's right.)
You think that makes her a snot. Because as you say, you wouldn't like her around. But I find her funny. I will say she started out a bit mean, so did Liz.
Apart from that though, it's hard to see what you don't like. And everyone reserves the right to like her.
So, what specifically do you find wrong with Sarah? Give an example of her being "snotty." Chances are we'll disagree with you.

It never struck me Sarah never starred... That's hardly fair. But then, when co-stars step "out of their bounds" so to speak, some people tend to be grouchy about and say they liked the "old" co-star version better and that the character is now stealing roles from other characters. (Witness Wooton.)
Still, it would have been nice to see Sarah star at least once. She had the character for it. The closest she came is starring alongside Jared and Mandy in Strange Boy in a Strange Land.
Why not give a good character a bigger role? She could easily have replaced Alex or Cal in an episode. I say replace because roles don't magically appear out of thin air. But she did deserve to have just one main-character role. So, why not give her a moment of glory and give Mandy and co. the boot just once?
Oh well. That's the brilliance of side-characters. They stay in your heart, for the very reason you have to be satisfied with the few glimpses you get. The few moments you are able to share with them are a treasure.
Oh, and yes... I'm very proud. "Irksome." Such a nice change. You deserve a medal with Emily on it.
^I began to love this part of her^ She is one of those amazing people who can pull off the whole aloof thing without being...um..I can't think of a good word, but you know what I mean.Pound Foolish wrote:Sarah is not only amazingly funny.
