In case you didn’t know, I LOVE T.V. Here are some characters that have entertained me through the years.
Lucy, she was always coming up with those harebrained ideas and getting into trouble.
Lucille Ball was a comic genius.
Dr. Gregory House. He’s sarcastic, witty and smarter than everyone in the room.
I’m going to miss him when the season ends.
Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Who doesn’t love a bad boy? And one with an accent?
The Trio from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Warren, Andrew and Jonathan were the funniest,
nerdiest villains to terrorize Sunnydale.
Pat MacDougall (Amy’s Mom), as played by Georgia Engel on Everybody Loves Raymond.
Soft spoken Pat stole every scene she was in.
Darlene from Roseanne. Sarcastic and mouthy – but never bratty,
Darlene was my favorite of the Conner kids.
Joan Harris (née Holloway) from Mad Men. Joan is the voice of reason in the crazy world of
Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. And she can rock a pen necklace like nobody’s business.
Stewie Gilligan Griffin from Family Guy. Funniest diabolical baby ever.
Bill McNeal from NewsRadio. Bill was a hilarious self-centered and pompous
doofus played by the late, great Phil Hartman.
Everyone knows I love Fat Betty (blam ba blam), so it should come as no surprise that I adore Fat Monica
from Friends. Fat Monica was so innocent, cheery and enthusiastic – and always a treat to watch.
Sue Sylvester from Glee. Though the writers have her go off the rails sometimes, I still love her.
Constance from American Horror Story. She is so very, very awful. But I loved it. Jessica Lange did a wonderful job portraying her – making her both nasty and sympathetic.
Natalie Green from Facts of Life. My favorite of the Eastland girls. Upbeat Natalie was always ready with a wisecrack. Too bad Natalie’s spinoff never came to be.
Dennis Finch from Just Shoot Me. Such a sarcastic little schemer. LOVED him.
Dewey from Malcolm in the Middle. Dewey was often lost in the shuffle. Because of this he had these weird little adventures that none of the family ever knew about. Some Dewey highlights for me were the episode with his pet fly Tony, and his dance with babysitter Bea Arthur.
Lafayette Reynolds from True Blood. Another scene stealer. He’s a gay, short-order cooking, drug dealing, road crewing, make-up wearing, butt kicking, fine black man. And I haven’t watched the last season yet, so who knows what else he’s been up to.
Nellie Olson from Little House on the Prairie. Nasty Nellie – Alison Arngrim made her so fun to watch!
Hiro Nakamura from Heroes. It was nice to see someone actually enthused about their super powers.
Veronica Mars. Whip smart, cute and funny. I miss Veronica and her sleuthing.
Wonder Woman, as played by Lynda Carter. Beautiful, strong and a great role model. WHERE IS HER MOVIE??!!
