And here I thought I was going to be able to pick who in my family I want murdered, and of the kidnapped ones, who I would actually want back...but then I realized this isn't in Otter.

If I'm living in their TV show universe I have to go with the A-Team with MacG as a backup because the great thing about shows in the 80's was that the heroes almost never lost and chances are none of my remaining family would be killed. Unlike, say 24, where my family and a quarter of the state population would end up dead and I would be revealed as a mole.

I voted for Jack Bauer on the basis it would lead to quick resolution--24 hours later and I can put this behind me.

However, now that I think about it, there's some on this list who get my family back in an hour.

I was gonna go with Jack but i thought since too many people die in his path (Friends and Foes) it might be a better idea to go with someone else.

I went with the Strike Team.

I'll go with Dexter Morgan, but I'd prefer Charlie's Angels...at least until the wife was back.

I think the Bristows give me the best chance to get them back with reasonable collateral damage.

Problem is you would have to put up with Sydney's constant crying so its almost not even worth it...

The Strike Team would get me the vengeance I'd seek.

Jack Sheppard? Why not Sayid and Locke? or Sawyer? You know, someone with the cajones to do something. Jack's a pussy.

Yeah, but there's no guarantee you would get your family back alive. Hell, Jack may pull the trigger on one of your family members himself.

Normally I'll play by the rules but there would be far too much collateral damage with the people in the poll, plus there are two glaring omissions so it comes down to:

Michael Weston, Sam & Fiona of Burn Notice and Gil Grissom, Nick Stokes, and Wendy Simms (if things didn't go as planned she's the shoulder I would want to cry on) on C.S.I..

I would have had either of the Burn Notice (Mike, Sam, Fi) or Leverage (Nate, Sophie, Eliot, Parker, Hardison) teams, but the OP asked only from the poll list above.

The only problem with an aggressive solution like the Strike Team is that I'd owe Vic some kind of favor and I would be a shitworld of hurt if I couldn't deliver (ie. City Controller Robert Martin).

On second thought, Andy Sipowicz may be the way to go.
