    They can be funny, charming, complicated, revolting, or simply beautiful (etc...), but characters from our favorite shows can certainly compel us to watch. Who are some of your favorite characters, and why?

    I like all the folks that look into the camera flabbergasted: Jackie Gleason in the Honeymooners, Archie Bunker, Al Bundy, Jim on The Office etc

    Frasier (the entire cast), James Garner (Rockford Files), Mary Tyler Moore (both Dick Van Dyke and her own show), Barbara Eden (IDO Jeannie), Carol O’Connor (Archie Bunker), Cheers (entire cast), Bob Denver (MLO Dobie Gillis, Gilligan’s Island), and Barney Miller (entire cast).
    I really loved that stuff.
    The why is I found all the characters relatable, funny, and in the cases of MTM and Barbara Eden, mesmerizing.

    Not really a character but I loved Alex Trebek and Jeopardy ( been watching the show nightly forever)

    Just IMO, a great role model of a human. Intelligent, polite, funny, fantastic communicator, generous...

    Almost anything by Phil Hartman: Lionel Hutz, Troy McClure, Caveman Lawyer, the “with it” dad who hired Matt Foley as a motivational speaker for his kids... I alway get excited when I hear his voice.
