    The Wire should be mandatory viewing in order to graduate high school.

    Leaving out a lot but first to mind - 

    Jack Bauer - 24

    Tommy Gavin - Rescue Me

    Vic Mackey - The Shield

    President Bartlett - The West Wing

    Coach Taylor - Friday Night Lights 



    Loved The Shield and 24. Can't believe I forgot about Jack Bauer. The Shield has one of the best intro themes of all time. Loved Dutch and Shane.

    I agree with you on the intro to The Shield.  I had to pick one and it had to be Vic - he was such a bastard, but so compelling. Jack Bauer was the first character that came to mind.

    I love The Wire, couldn't pick one character though. I have not seen Breaking Bad yet - it's on my Netflix watch list.

    It has to say something that in the first several posts, there were 4 different Breaking Bad characters named.

    Jesse Pinkman - Breaking Bad - "Bitch"

    Tyrion Lannister - Game of Thrones "I drink and I know things"

    Ron Swanson - Parks and Rec - "Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Don’t teach a man to fish…and feed yourself. He’s a grown man. And fishing’s not that hard"

    Dwight Schrute - The Office - "I don’t have a lot of experience with vampires, but I have hunted werewolves. I shot one once, but by the time I got to it, it had turned back into my neighbor’s dog"

    Tommy Gavin - Rescue Me - "Asshole"

    Man, there are some good ones up there (though I too have yet to see GoT or Breaking Bad).

    Also, I forgot about Frank Pembleton on Homicide.  Talk about intense.
  • FifthelementFifthelement LotuslandPosts: 5,517
    Elizabeth Jennings - The Americans
    Phillip Jennings - The Americans
    Dutch - Killjoys
    Buffy/Willow - BtVS

    Totally love your Holder from The Killing pick. I thought that was a great show.

    But you MUST get on the ball with Breaking Bad and GOT. Those are 2 phenomenal programs.


    P.S. good to see you back

    Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer/Angel
    Dr. House, House

    Fun thread! Joining late and gotta agree with previously noted Hawkeye Pierce, Costanza, Jack Bauer, Fox Mulder and both Jesse and Walter White. (also liked B. Cranston..Walter..as the dad in Malcolm in the Middle). My 5 additional favorites are:

    Kirk...James T.  Star trek
    Gemma Teller  Sons of Anarchy
    Dr. Reid Criminal minds or Dr. Smith lost in space.
    Elliot Stabler  Law n order SUV
    Samantha Jones  sex in the city
