I don't know how syd could possibly NOT be someone's favorite :o? Sure she's the star of the show, and maybe it's too predictable to vote for her, but damn.... that woman IS the show imo. My vote is for syd 110%
You don't always have to like the star the best. Of course I love Sydney, but usually in a series, there's always a character that I like better than the lead. The lead almost always has to be too perfect and I like people with flaws--who can be difficult and make the hard choices that the hero can't make. Everybody knows who I like best, so I won't say.
