Ted Buchanan, on the face of it, is a multi-tasking genius. He's a master at selling computer software, out-performing his colleagues at work. “Nobody beats The Machine,” frowns downcast walrus-moustached colleague Neal. “Guy's a genius.” He's a whizz at mini golf. He's also a dab hand in the kitchen, conjuring all sorts of culinary treats such as buns, cookies and mini pizzas. Remember, cooking kids, use a cast iron skillet to fry pizzas in herbs and olive oil. “No room for compromise there!”
So why is Buffy so down on poor old Ted? Granted, he has a dubious mullet that makes him look a bit like a soft rock star from 1977, but beyond this, there's no reason for all this Buchanan Bile.

Emma (posing as Sutton) confronted Ted at Derek's grave. She wouldn't give him his hospital badge back without getting some answers first. I have to say she really has some balls considering Ted was one of the main suspects of The Lying Game Season 2.
Alec had a great point when he stopped Dan from choking Ted out at the police station: Ted may make a lot of mistakes, but look at the guy, he's not the killer. Ted was practically crapping his pants!
