Top 50 TV Characters 50-26  

nenya_kanadka on March 4th, 2012 10:17 am (UTC)
There's a bunch of these that I don't know, but the ones I do are awesome characters. I have to say I think Londo's quote is the best. :D

Hee, I looked up a bunch of quotes, but Londo's, I knew exactly which one I was going to use.

And ah, Londo. And G'kar! Man, this post is great.

Great choices even though I don't know some, I'm sure they are as awesome as the ones I know!

Am curious who will be on 25 to 1...
Shannon: fringe olivia knowskungfuwaynewho on March 4th, 2012 05:28 pm (UTC)
Sorting out the order of 25-1 was reallllly tough. I switched things like ten times last night.

My hope anytime I do these kinds of posts is to convince just one person to try out just one new show. Most of the shows I love the most I first tried because of graphics or icons or meta or what-have-you.
Martine: Fringe/AltAstridla_loony on March 4th, 2012 05:38 pm (UTC)
I can totally understand, I don't know if I could pull off making such a list.

There are some shows on your list I definitly want to check out (I have a list on my board over my desk where I always add shows so I keep track of what I wanna see^^) like Luther and Downton Abbey.
Shannon: luther alicekungfuwaynewho on March 4th, 2012 11:21 pm (UTC)
Luther is so good. I watched S2 a couple of weekends ago and it was soooo good.

Thank you for giving me yet more excuses to sit down and watch Deadwood and Downton Abbey.

As if I needed them. ;)
Shannon: wait more thingskungfuwaynewho on March 4th, 2012 05:30 pm (UTC)
Ugh, you have to watch Deadwood. You have to. It's a practically flawless show. And I could have put up pretty much every single line of Al's, that's how amazing his dialogue is.

(Says the person who still hasn't watched S3 of Deadwood, because once she does, then it will be overrrrr.)

*glances at shrink-wrapped S5 and Crusade*

I have no idea what you are talking about... <_<
Shannon: b5 john watches delennkungfuwaynewho on March 4th, 2012 11:21 pm (UTC)
Girl, have you not watched S5 of B5? That's dedication! (I kinda did the same thing, though. After tearing through S3-4, it took me months to watch 5, and a solid month just to watch the last four episodes.)
hearts_blood on March 4th, 2012 11:25 pm (UTC)
I saw it when it first aired, does that count? I just... don't want to see my boy Lennier on his downward spiral. *hugs him*

(Looking back, I saw "Sleeping in Light" on what turned out to be my last Thanksgiving at my grandparents' house. I'm really glad I didn't know that at the time.)
cath822cath822 on March 4th, 2012 04:34 pm (UTC)
Awesome. I watch...nine of these shows! (Ten of the characters, since Parks and Rec is double-billed.) Love the selections.
Shannon: bsg you slay me gaiuskungfuwaynewho on March 4th, 2012 05:36 pm (UTC)
Nine isn't bad! Now I just have to work on getting you to watch the rest...

(JK, JK.)

cath822cath822 on March 5th, 2012 03:23 am (UTC)
If it makes you feel better, five of those shows (Firefly, VMars, Battlestar, Caprica, and TNG) are shows I started watching, at least in part, because you recommended them. :)
singer_shaper: women warriorssinger_shaper on March 4th, 2012 07:44 pm (UTC)
Love your B5 & Whedon-verse choices. And Dorothy!
Shannonkungfuwaynewho on March 4th, 2012 11:22 pm (UTC)
Thanks! Dorothy was such an important part of my childhood, NGL.

I agree with your choices (the ones I know LOL) and I'd like to ask: How awesome was Jessica Lange in AHS?
Shannonkungfuwaynewho on March 5th, 2012 12:38 am (UTC)
So awesome! And I haven't even finished watching S1 yet. After just the pilot I was like, dear Lord, this is the best new character to be on TV in aaaaages. And so much of that was due to JL, really.

You will like at least one person in 25-1 :DDDD *waggles eyebrows*

Love the layout, love the quotes and everyone.

I guess I knew it was going to be my kind of brilliant when I open the page and there staring back at me is Father Dougal! xD
Shannon: careful nowkungfuwaynewho on March 5th, 2012 07:01 pm (UTC)
Thanks! And yay! Always fun to find another Father Ted fan.

Super well done.

Thank you!

Aeryn Sun at 49? NOOO!! Come on. The fact that she could give birth to a baby (no epidural BTW), then shoot and kick ass ten minutes later should've gotten her in the top ten (LOL). But, damn, then you went and pulled a Maxwell frickin Smart out your ass. Gotta love your list on old-school props alone.

Great job!
Shannonkungfuwaynewho on March 10th, 2012 02:42 am (UTC)
Well, I'm only a few episodes into Season 2 on Farscape, so the fact that she made the list at all is a testament to what a great character she is. (Boo for spoilers! Not that you would know, it's cool.) Get Smart was one of my very favorite shows as a kid; Maxwell/99 was probably my first real ship, if you don't count Link/Zelda, heh.

Thank you!
SONGHAYsonghay on March 10th, 2012 03:27 am (UTC)
I caught all the Farscape shows a few months back on one of the television archive sites. Gotta love John and Aeryn. Their romance is closer to what one would read in romance novels, full of angst, disagreement,and denial. Frustrating at times but so lovely and well acted. Let me know what you think once you're able to watch more. And definitely watch the Peacekeeper Wars once you're finished with the final season.
