Serial Killers, or, Top Ten TV most memorable TV characters

Joe Powell of ‘Cup of Joe Powell’ fame has a great Friday afternoon question:

Who are the ten most memorable TV characters

Here are mine, in no particular order:

Basil Fawlty (Fawlty Towers) – John Cleese

Mary Tyler Moore (D.V Dyke and her show)

Andre Braugher from Homicide

Homer Simpson (d’oh!)

George Castanza – Seinfeld(Jason Alexander)

Jackie Gleason (Honeymooner’s) so sue me..i’m older than most of you and he has been the inspiration for countless TV sitcom characters

Lucille Ball (for the ‘I love Lucy’ shows, not the dreadful ‘Lucy Show’)

Don Knotts as Barney

Sarah Michelle Geller (Buffy)

James Gandolfini (Sopranos)

As usual, with lists like these, there are probably another 20 characters that could easily be in anyone’s Top 10..Kristin Bell as Veronica Mars, Shatner as Captain Kirk, Tony Randall in Odd Couple, A host of people from SNL, Alan Alda in M*A*S*H, Cosby as Dr. Huxtable….

  1. thanks again for the mention — after some serious Blogger probs this afternoon I finally got my list up.

    and great minds think alike – Homer and Buffy are MUST haves!

  2. I might argue Kramer is more memorable than George on Seinfeld. Though the episode where George sleeps on a little shelf under his desk is one of my favorites.
