Please, I'd like to know: is it correct to rewrite the last sentence like this: you don't have to like a character because it's your favourite?

Thank you!

Hi rerre,

Your sentence is correct and has a similar meaning, with a slightly different emphasis.

My favorite television series are detective stories that are quite common nowadays. I'm not sure but maybe because of that, some detective dramas don't have a good screenplay enough to make audience get a good guess. But mostly, I enjoy them.

The series in this chat refers to a set or sequence of related television programme or show. My favourite TV show is News line. The reasons being that is talks about current trends and happenings cutting across all sectors of the global economy.

I think the speakers are talking about the serie "Game of Thrones". On the other hand , my favourite TV show or serie is "The adventures of Merlin" because I like the age of knights and witchcraft stories.

I don´t Watch tv series, Then I don´t know about this story. If I could had free time, I´d prefer watching an interesting clasical movie.

I loved Game of Throne and Cerci was my favorite character too. I agree with them that the last episode wasn't as I was thinking it will be

Hi, can you help me understand the last word the man said "You don't have to like a character for them to be your favourite!" I don't know the inner meaning of this sentence. Thank your so much in advance

Hi eulaliu,

The meaning here is

A character can still be your favourite even if you don't like them

Sometimes people's favourite characters are the villains, because they are often the most interesting or exciting characters. It's hard to say you like someone who is evil or cruel, but they can still be your favourite.
