NOTHING turns me off a character more than an overly-pushy introduction, in the all-the-canon-characters-love-me-so-the-audience-should-too kinda way. (Which happens a lot when new characters are introduced half way through a series, but occasionally at the start too.) I'll accept the main character as the main focus - but I get to make up my mind as to whether I like them, or anyone else!

God yes. If TPTB are pushy, I dig my heels in and get contrary. *g* And if I don't like the main characters, then I'm out of there. Doesn't matter how awesome the show is, because for me, the show is the (main) characters.

what I most often want out of fandom is more of what attracted me to the source in the first place.

Exactly. I've often seen people say that they love reading supporting character fic, because they don't get to see it in the show. But for me, fic is a way of finding out more about the reasons I watch the show ie (all about) the main characters.
