Top Ten Male TV Characters
I don't talk about male characters too much. I'm much more interested in female characters as a rule. So it took me a really long time to complete this list. I kept messing around with it. For now, though, this is it and it's accurate. They're all amazing characters with depth. You'll find no Bad Boys (TM) here. I know I usually do thinky thoughts about each character when I post these top ten spams, but I'm going to let the quotes speak for themselves on these guys.
10. Alec Hardison - Leverage
You know, I had to re-task two satellites just to get a lousy internet connection. Took more than an hour to torrent the last episode of Doctor Who.
09. Dr. John Carter - ER
When you do everything you can, sometimes more than you thought you could, you’ve got to walk away knowing you fought the good fight. You fought the good fight, Lucy. And tomorrow you’ll fight another one.
08. Chris Miles - Skins
I was perfectly happy killing myself but then you asked me to try, and for the first time in my life it felt like someone actually gave a shit, and that person was worth trying for.
07. Charlie Young - The West Wing
In about two minutes the Deputy Communications Director is going to come in here and tell me that the speech he’s writing for Red Mass isn’t going well and could I read it for him. And you think you’re what makes me feel like something?
06. Toby Ziegler - The West Wing
You’re gonna lose, and you’re gonna lose huge. They’re gonna throw rocks at you next week, and I wanted to be standing next to you when they did.
05. Dan Rydell - Sports Night
Once in awhile when I consider the effort it takes to diligently adhere to a moral compass, I take myself out of the lineup and I rest for the next game.
04. The Doctor - Doctor Who
And everybody lives, Rose! Everybody lives! I need more days like this! Go on, ask me anything; I’m on fire!
03. Malcom Reynolds - Firefly
May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.
02. Logan Huntzberger - Gilmore Girls
Hey if this relationship thing is going to work out, then it goes both ways. You have to tell me why we’re committing a felony before we do it. Not that that’s going to stop us, but at least I’ll have all the facts. Okay?
01. Sam Seaborn - The West Wing
But for a brilliant surgical team and two centimeters of a miracle, this guy is dead right now. From bullets fired from a gun bought legally. They bought guns. They loaded them. They drove from Wheeling to Rosslyn. And until they pulled the trigger, they had yet to commit a crime. I am so off the charts tired of the gun lobby tossing around terms like “personal freedom” and nobody calling them on it. It’s not about personal freedom. And it certainly has nothing to do with public safety. It’s just that some people like guns.
