arathesane said: Yeah, mine aren’t in order. Only one would be above any/all of the others( Nobody’s guessed him, yet, though I’ve repeatedly said he’s my TV fave of all time.) Made a list last night so I wouldn’t change it! Was hard to leave off several characters.
I havent seen your list but I would guess Omar from The Wire. I didnt make a list, I think 10 is enough to give me a little leeway because I am sooooo picky. But I know people wont guess some because I dont talk about them that much or they’re from really old shows or something.
Haven’t posted a list, Veronica Mars is the only one that has been guessed accurately so far.
And, yeah, Omar, is the character I was talking about, my fave of all time.
(Some gifs for the correct guess.)
I’m not sure with me that it’s that I’m not picky more than I currently watch about 20,000 shows and have watched so many others in the past. Though, all of the characters I picked are from shows that aren’t on anymore. I think the earliest character(so to speak) premiered in ‘91.
There are many I could have been picked from series older than that, but while I love them, I wasn’t ever obsessed with them. That’s how I narrowed down my picks, ones I was either once obsessed with or ones that I relate to.
I also tried not to have my current Deadwood rewatch influence me. Which was hard because, oh, so many great characters. Or etonia’s X-Files rewatch influence me. (Scully narrowly missed the cut.) Honestly, I could probably have picked ten from The Wire, alone, Or all the characters from The Hour, several from BSG, several from TTOI or Veep, and so on. Some series have so many great characters.
Seriously? That came out of Mulder’s mouth? On the show?
Yuuuuuup. It was jarring.
I guess, technically, that could be correct? Because he has a degree in psychology and worked for the behavioral science unit but isn’t really a practicing psychologist? Though, he does use applied psychology in his work, still, and, yeah, the line isn’t trying to imply that subtle a distinction, anyway. It sounds more like a glaring continuity error.
