TV shows are like heroin for the good people, they lure you in, and after your first fix, your body itches for more and more, until a permanent black patch appears under your eyes, the testament of your addiction. It would be operose to find people who did not hear the name of FRIENDS, DEXTER (overrated!), Prison Break and etc, who have either a television set, or a PC. Just like Pokemon and BeyBlade had occupied a significant portion of our childhood, TV SHOWS mug us of our priceless teenage time mercilessly.
I, myself, am a victim of TV SHOW addiction, giving away countless hours of my studying time to its ever wide arms, and it never disappointed me. It feels good each and every time. So, I have decided to name the culprits who should be blamed for my failure to get proper grades. Here is the list of the Top 10 Awesomest!
TV Show Characters:
Let me be clear, I liked him up to the 4th season, when he still had his baby-fat and that cute little smile. This kid gave the show a new dimension, apart from the usual sex and booze centered comedy littered with half nude women, horny men, and gallons of alcohol. My favorite quotation of Jake: “ If you want to talk about sex, why don’t you go to your own room?!” (Jake to his father when he was ordered to leave the room as Charlie began to talk about his ‘night’)
9. Michael Scofield (Prison Break)
This guy is pure genius. He taught me how make bombs out of hairspray! How cool is that?! His intricate plans will simply blow your mind off, and you will be forced to give a standing ovation seeing them unfold, like the clothes of an expensive Vegas stripper. And his prison escapes ….. orgasmic! (Oh, erm … that didn’t come out right -__-)
GOB is short for a very long name(too long for a lazy ass like me to write). He is an illusionist. His greatest illusion, the disappearing of his father’s 900K yacht, had given him the tiniest amount of fame in his life, but it was short lived, as he had no place to live after literally blowing up his home(the yacht) to gain the attention of the media and his fellow magicians. GOB is an utterly lovable character, his feud with his mother creating some stomach curling funny scenes, and his magic shows (with THE FINAL COUNTDOWN playing at the back) is pant wetting funny.
Monica is definitely the best female characters of FRIENDS with her craziness for perfection. She loves to clean; so much that if there is nothing else in her apartment that needed a scrub, she would go to the neighbor’s and scour their house spotless. Her loyalty to her husband, her witty comments, and her endless humour makes her a character to love.
6. Homer Simpson (The Simpsons)
Does he really need an introduction? If you think so, please stop reading this piece, it’s not for you. He is the nightmare of all mothers, the darkest fear of cows, chicken, and all kinds of red meat … he is THE man. Homer resembles the lazy ass American citizens in a satirical way, Matt Groening portraying what’s wrong with today’s world in the funniest way possible.
Shawn Spencer is a self proclaimed psychic who helps the Police Dept. of Santa Barbara solve crime by having visions and leading them to the criminals by sensing their negative aura. I think you have already figured out that it’s all bogus. He is as much as psychic, as Obama is a deserved winner of Nobel Peace prize. Shawn’s sense of humor and the way he pisses everyone off is truly inspirational.
4. Sheldon Bazinga Cooper (The Big Bang Theory)
This character makes my day each and every time I watch him. Chuck Lorre is a creative mastermind to come up with such a character. Sheldon is a genius, graduating from University at the age of 14, and took a job as a theoretical physicist in CALTECH. A few facts about him: he loves his comics more than his life, he even routined his visits to the toilet, he has a list of MOST HATED people, (a pizza delivery guy tops that because he didn’t give enough ketchup), he never touches anybody, fearing germs would enter, and he ALWAYS sits at a particular sofa, refusing to let anyone touch it. If anyone does, then he’d dry wash the whole friggin thing. He is a character unparallel to anyone. Period.
3. Barney Stinson ( How I met Your Mother)
Barney Stinson first allured me into wearing suits. I did buy my first suit following Barney’s motto: SUIT UP. Another reason I love this guy is because of his BRO CODES. The codes are the best thing that happened to MANkind. “Bros before hoes” is exemplary to what we (Men) should always follow, and retain the last bit of dignity left in us.
2. Joey (F.R.I.E.N.D.S)
Joey is the FUNNIEST character I have ever witnessed and probably ever will. His redefined dumbness, his naivety as a person, and his loyalty to friendship makes him a character to remember. Joey’s “HOW YOU’ DOING?” has become his trademark, and in the early 2000, it was widely used by Americans, a testimony of the success that Joey has achieved.
1. Dr. Gregory House ( House M.D.)
Patient: I don’t want the medicine! Why are you doing this?
House: Because I am ONE SAD SON OF A BITCH.
That’s exactly what Dr Gregory House is, a sad, son of a bitch. But he is also a genius of a diagnostician, solving medical complexities that dozens of other doctors fail to do. He will do anything to solve medical puzzles, even if it means kidnapping his own patient and doing surgery against his will. He is enigmatic, a hardcore atheist, and a child when it comes to relationships. He literally blew up his relationship with the love of his life by ramming his car into her living room when she broke up with him. House is indescribable, that’s exactly why he tops my list.
