Best character(s) on TV

Post by westisbest on Wed 13 Aug 2014, 10:41 pm

Ok, so this could be a huge list. And a lot off different category of TV shows.

For me though, its Michael Stonebridge & Damien Scott from Strike Back.

First off, think the series is fantastic.

Stonebridge, the tough guy who beats the c*rap out of people.

Scott, goes round shagging the birds,  the funny guy, beats the c*rap out of people(to a lesser extent than Stonebridge).

The comradery between the two is excellent.
The special bond between the two.

Looking forward to the new series.

MIG, Tig is a fantastic character in SOA, you have to have respect for Kim Coates for making a character like that so likeable.

Personally I really liked Casey in Chuck, always good when Sarah was on screen as well Very Happy

Love Arby in Utopia and his sidekick Lee is good for a laugh as well.

Pretty much all of the characters in Sherlock, I don't think a show has ever been as perfectly cast as that one. Breaking Bad is probably the only other show I can think of that's characters all have the perfect actor for them.

Malcolm Tucker in The Thick of It.
Alan Johnson in Peep Show.
The Doctor in Doctor Who.

I loved Saul from Breaking Bad, don't watch much TV series or TV bar the football since Breaking Bad finished.
