All Time Favorite TV Characters

March 17, 2014

most of the time, it's one single character that makes me love a tv show and i continue to tune in week after week just to see what my character to say.  regardless of whether the show itself is one of my favorites or not, i'll just keep watching!  while i was thinking about which characters made my list, it made me realize that i mostly love them because i want to be them.  and i like to think i'm well on my way.  my top 5 loves:

max from 2 broke girls.  you'd have to be crazy not to love max.  kat dennings plays her perfectly.



emily gilmore.  we can have the lorelai versus rory argument all day long but i'll tell you what's up - emily gilmore (followed closely by paris gellar of course.)


the dowager countess of grantham.  duh.


sadie from awkward.  i find myself speaking in her exact tone all the time.



karen walker.  my spirit animal.



so basically i want to be a crotchety rich woman (minus max for the rich part) who has no filter and is fluent in cocktails, judging people, and insults without repercussions.  is that so wrong?  my shows tell me that people will still love me, and after all...


check in next week for my all time favorite movie characters.  who's your favorite tv show character?

  1. I fucking love Max. She's my spirit animal while I'm working. However, in the bullshit restaurant corporate industry I can't act like her.

    Gemma froms SOA is one of me favorite tv characters. And Boyd and Raylan from Justified.

  4. Totally agree with the Dowager Countess, she MAKES the show!! And you're right, Gilmore Girls would not be the same without Emily! I just love almost every character on that show, except Dean. I hate Dean with a fiery passion.

  9. I wanted to get into 2 Broke Girls and just never watched it. I've seen snips though, enough that I can say that I like Kat Dennings character! Good thing I have Netflix now, I think it's on there.
    I can't think of any characters right of the top of my head. It's like I was put on the spot and my brain has gone blank. lol Boo.

  18. Karen Walker "my spirit animal" lol you seriously kill me. But yes, she may be one of the best characters of all time. I can hear my moms insane laughter in my head just looking at her face.

    1. Shoshanna is the only one I really like, but Jessa is growing on me. I think Marnie is so annoying!

  29. Emily Gilmore - absolutely 100%. Everything she says to Lorelai kills me!

  30. Love Max! And Karen!

    I love Tami Taylor from Friday Night Lights and Roseanne. Both spectacular in their own ways.

  31. I may steal (with credit) this post idea in the future!

    Emily Gilmore, really? Ha! I love Loralei and Rory, but I get it. I'd probably end up going with Luke myself.

  32. Finally someone besides myself who appreciates all the inappropriate humor 2 Broke Girls has to offer, Kat Dennings as Max is my girl crush!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh Emily Gilmore....it's like literally looking into the mirror of my mother....except my mother is a little bit more sunny about life but she's always correcting me on how to be a lady. I love that show....I could watch it for hours and in my opinion she is the best part of it!

  34. Well of course you have to love the Dowager Countess. I haven't decided if I would love her or be terrified of her in real life, though. Most likely, both.

  35. Karen wins character of the century. There isn't one like her! I also love Sadie from Awkward, Schmidt and Nick from New Girl, Michael from The Office (Dwight a close second), and Phil Dunphy from Modern Family. OH and the dad from That 70s Show! Oh shit, I could go on forever. So many great characters out there.

  36. love the Emily Gilmore pick. I love Nick from New Girl, Jim from The Office (well I loved basically everyone in The Office), and Charlie from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I'm looking forward to seeing the movie characters.

  37. You and your "bitchiness" crack me up, and yes, we will all still love you! I want to be Claire Dunphee. I basically just put myself at the old people table, but I'm a mom and I see myself as Clair in all her awkward and funny glory!

  39. I am absolutely Max and Karen. This morning Em was trying to tell Abbey that its how you look on the inside. Abbey said well I am not pretty on the inside. I chimed in with this family is too full of bitchy to be pretty on the inside.

  40. I am Max and Emily! This is so amazing!

  41. So many good ones here! I speak, eat, and breath Liz Lemon. I used to try and fight it, but I've accepted my Lemon identity.

  42. Oh Emily Gilmore! I can rewatch that show over and over and over...and I have!

    I would say my all time favorite tv show character is hands down Blair Waldorf. If I could be Blair I would die happy.

  43. Lmao Karen Karen all damn day - she is definitely one of the most fascinating characters on TV, for a female. I do love Elaine from Seinfeld. Oh and all the Golden Girls - especially Sophia. I've caught a few episodes of 2 Broke Girls and I agree Max is the only reason it stayed on my tv longer than I intended. I need to catch up on Awkward!!! Happy Hump Day Stephanie! -Iva

  44. oh my gosh, I started watching Awkward this summer and I LOVE SADIE too!!! Have you seen Season 3? She has such warm moments in it. I love that she has a sadistic and sweet side. Love Karen Walker too....
