My Favorite TV Characters Meme (tag-free)

Becca posted this tag free meme, and it was right up my alley.

Here were the rules:

a. Post a list of 10-20 TV shows you love (current or cancelled)
b. Have your friends guess your favorite character from each show
c. When guessed bold the line and write a little bit about why you like that character
d. Post in your own blog

And here are my 16 shows:

1. The Simpsons (minor character) Unanswered: HA HA! Nelson Muntz!
2. Alias Marshall Flinkman (Jeremy of Popped Culture) Small. Geekish. Friendly and overly chatty Q to Sydney Bristow's Super Spy. I'd certainly want his expertise on my side.
3. Futurama Dr. Zoidberg (Jen of Casual Slack) A humanoid shellfish with a mildly ironic personality and no shame... I say woop, woop, woop, woop.
4. 24 Unanswered David Palmer: I am really disappointed by this as a few days before this post, I had put up an entry discussing a Barack Obama T-Shirt I really liked.
5. Drawn Together Unanswered: Foxxy Brown.
6. WKRP in Cincinnati Les Nessman (Jen of Casual Slack):Les Nessman... little, naive, earnest and incompetent. It is a deadly combination in drama but gut-busting in a comedy.
7. Ugly Betty Betty Suarez (Paul of Gor[b]) Yes, as Paul noted, sweet nerdish Betty Suarez enchanted my heart.
8. Soap Benson Dubois (Becca of No Smoking in the Skullcave) Yes, he had his own series and everything, but Robert Guillaume made the role of the persnickety butler of the Tate household.
9. King of the Hill Bobby Hill (Mr. Fab of Pointless Drivel) I was the fat friendly kid... all I am saying.
10. The Larry Sanders Show Artie (Mr Fab of Pointless Drivel) Artie is such a wonderful prick... I believe a lot of older television executive producers are like him.
11. Prison Break Unanswered: Fernando Sucre
12. Dead Like Me Unanswered: Rube
13. 30 Rock: Liz Lemon (Jen of Casual Slack): Yes, it had to be Tina Fey and her semi-autobiographical take on a geekish head writer of a sketch comedy series. I am however surprised no one was giving Kenneth love in their guesses.
14. Spaced Tim Bisley (Becca of No Smoking in the Skullcave): Simon Pegg as a comic book artist, video game playing, pop cultural obsessed geek. That sound like a lot of people I know, doesn't it?
15. Daria: Jane Lane (AG of Techspace) When your title character is sarcastic, it is rare when their equal isn't also their nemesis. Daria and Jane perfectly complement each other as outsiders.
16. Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law Unanswered: The Bear

Can you guess my favorites? Every successful guess gets you some link love (If I can give it of course)

Paul G. said...

Unless you are being tricky, I'd have to guess #7 is the titular Betty Suarez herself, who you openly admit has enchanted your heart.

MC said...

5 down, 11 left to go. And some great guesses as well.

Lee ( said...

1. Dr Frink
4. Either Jack or Tony's mug (look it up on wikipedia but I'm sure you're already in on it you pop culture junkie)
16. Mentok the mind taker

Lee...again said...

I didn't mean Jack's mug either, upon reading that entry it looks like I'm suggesting Jack's mug OR Tony's mug.

I'm not.

I'm saying Jack Bauer.


MC said...

Lee, you swung and missed 3 times.

AG said...

ZOMG, a tag game I am actually digging... miracles of the season!

12. Reggie. Who wasn't Reggie at some point?

15. Jane. Everyone loves Daria, but everyone wants to be Jane... or be friends with Jane.

Becca said...

Okay here goes...

1. Comic Book Guy? (or Jack Albertson it's his real name!)

8. It must be Benson...he's so dang funny they gave him his own show!

13. Has to be Jack on 30 Rock Alec Baldwin is hilarious and somehow keeps getting funnier.

14. Tim?

15. Is it Daria's dad (jake?)? That guy cracks me up.

16. Phil Ken Sebben?

Jen said...

13. Liz Lemon..?

say it ain't Tracy Morgan!
it can't be..

I refuse to believe anyone
likes Tracy Morgan

MC said...

I think it is funny that 3 people said Jack Donaghy for 30 Rock.

Jeff said...

4. Chloe?

MC said...

Chloe is a good guess, given my Mary Lynn Rajskub love, but alas, she is not my favorite 24 character.

Jeremy Barker said...

Ok, here goes...

1. Baby Gerald, also known as Baby with One Eyebrow
2. Marshall Flinkman
11. T-Bag? Nah... Alexander Mahone
16. Peter Potamus
