Some television characters are not treated very well by fans, critics or, at times, even the scripts written for their own show.

Wheaton has become, among other things, an author, an internet game host and a recurring guest star playing a fictional version of himself on the popular CBS situation comedy, “The Big Bang Theory.”
Now Wheaton is coming to Metro Detroit for this weekend’s Motor City Comic Con.
He tells WDET’s Quinn Klinefelter it feels a bit like he is coming home.
