Who is your Favourite ever TV Character ?

I know we have threads about the sexiest, the best villian, etc

but have we had a simple one where people can name their most favourite tv character ever ?

Any genre, any medium in tv (animated, reality, scripted etc)

i know it's going to be hard, but try name only one or close to it

Hank Kingsley.

Sometimes I'm embarrassed for him. Sometimes I have great sympathy for him. Sometimes I'm astonished by how big of a mean streak he has. He was all over the place, yet it never seemed like the writers were making contrivances. All of that was Hank, and Jeffery Tambor played him perfectly.

My all time favorite TV Character?

That's tough - there have been a lot that I've absolutely loved. Vic Mackey, Red Forman, Steve Austin, Miles O'Brien, Susan Ivanova, John Sheridan, Rick Castle, Kate Beckett, etc. But if I had to pick just one, it would be...

G'Kar, from Babylon 5.



The character arc for him is stunning. Andreas Katsulas' performances in the role were relevatory. The character goes from a brash, loud, aggressive, angry warrior to an introspective, caring, philosophical deep thinker and religious leader who has learned from his mistakes - and nothing about the character arc feels fake or forced. The seeds for his englightenment are shown early on, even if they were disguised as seemingly throwaway lines here and there. Absolutely brilliant writing and acting make G'Kar the best character ever on TV and my personal favorite.
