best tv characters of all time

i spoke about the worst tv characters of all time, now its time to talk about some of the best tv characters of all time.  because there are a lot, but here are some of my favorites.

mindy from the mindy project.  seriously, show of hands, who doesn't want to be best friends with mindy?  everyone in the room?  i thought so.  she is an adult who acts like a kid and its amazing.  and so hilarious.  one of my favorite things about her is her independence.  when danny is dragging his feet about moving in together, mindy says "i'm fine if your mother moves here or i do.  but just let me know.  because i'll be fine if you don't want to be with me."  and she is right.  she can be on her own.  that's my favorite thing about her.

phil from modern family.  he is so much fun!  he is so quirky and always thinks of fun things to do. out of the entire family, i would want to be friends with phil the most.  cam would be too much for me, i think, but phil would be so fun to hang out with!  i love his sweetness, that he always asks the question "what if?" and is always proposing fun things to do.  italian accent night?  putting on tuxedos and test driving rolls royces?  how fun!! 

ohhhhh. lucille from  arrested development.  so dysfunctional, so hilarious.  her crusties are legendary.  i miss that show so much. 
lucille: get me a vodka rocks.
michael: mom, its 9 in the morning. 
lucille: and a piece of toast.
one of my favorite episodes when she goes off her post partum depression pills 30+ years after she has buster and she just get progressively meaner snarkier, more awesome and more hilarious throughout the day. 

titus! i can't believe i almost forgot him! titus from the unbreakable kimmy schmidt.  you know tina fey's comedy? her humor?  her 30 rock humor?  well in this show (if you haven't seen it what are you doing with your life??!) that humor mostly falls on titus.  and its fantastic.  soooo overdramatic, so theatrical.  i love all his one liners and he is my favorite part about the show.

and how could i write a post about the best tv characters and not include the dean from community?  he is the one of the best parts of (i'm not exaggerating) the greatest comedy of my time.  my favorite are his outfits.  that episode where they show a montage of all his outfits i was laughing so hard i was crying.  he is so oblivious, so clueless, such a bad dean.  he is just plain hilarious.  but his outfits.  man, his outfits.  they are the best part of the show.

who are you favorite characters from television?


  1. Love your list! For me, it's Tobias from AD. My cousin's son just turned 1 and at the party, his smash cake was blue and his whole face ended up blue. I wondered if it was appropriate to make a "I just blue myself" joke at a 1-year-old's birthday. Also, I prefer Abed in Community. The Dean is fab, but all my favorite episodes are Abed-centric. Other than that, I would say Jesse from Breaking Bad, Matthew Crawley from Downton Abbey, Barney from How I Met Your Mother, Sargent Doakes from Dexter, April from Parks & Recreation, and Betty from Mad Men. Probably more, but those are the main ones.

  2. These are ALL great! I would also add:

    Lady Violet Crawley from Downton Abbey
    Lucy Ricardo from I Love Lucy
    Rose Nylund from The Golden Girls
    Fox Mulder from The X Files
    CJ Cregg from The West Wing
    Hawkeye Pierce from MASH
    Tobias Funke from Arrested Development

  3. I like Phil, but haven't seen the other shows, I agree with Karen Hawkeye from Mash was one of my favourites, along with CJ for the West Wing


Hearing from you makes my day!!
