TV character meme  
Ganked from mareth_redorb

1. Post a list of 10 TV shows you follow (current or cancelled!)
2. Have your friends list guess your favorite CHARACTER from each show
3. When guessed bold the line and write a sentence about why you like that character
4. Post in your own livejournal.

1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer Guessed by lukeii: Xander. Whilst many other funnier characters came and went, Xander was stalwart to the end: the comic relief.
2. Angel Guessed by _megalomania_: Lorne. What can I say? He's my favourite character in the entire "Buffyverse". The campest demon this side of the pink taffeta dimension.
3. Firefly Guessed by mareth_redorb: Kaylee. She's just sooooo cute. And not a lesbian.
4. Star Trek: The Next Generation
5. The Sopranos
6. Futurama
7. The Simpsons Guessed by lukeii: Homer. Obvious, perhaps, but it's like my boxer shorts say: Homer Simpson is my kind of guy.
8. Coupling Guessed by lukeii: Geoff. Even more obvious than Homer. The funniest character ever to grace the small screen.
9. Men Behaving Badly Guessed by lukeii: Tony. I think the episode where Tony ends up sitting naked in the shed says it all.
10. Red Dwarf Guesses by sjl: Kryten. Kryten gets all the best lines, especially his comebacks:

Rimmer : Step up to Red Alert!
Kryten : Sir, are you absolutely sure? It does mean changing the bulb.

Cat: Hey, I got it! We laser our way through!
Kryten: An excellent suggestion, Sir, with just two minor drawbacks. One, we don't have a power source for the lasers, and two, we don't have any lasers.

Cat: What? Am I the only sane one here? Why don't we drop the defensive shields?
Kryten: A superlative suggestion, sir, with just two minor flaws. One: We don't have any defensive shields, and Two: We don't have any defensive shields. Now, I realise that, technically speaking, that's only one flaw, but I thought that it was such a big one it was worth mentioning twice.

Woops, and 8 as well, but that was a gimme.

The only one on your list that I like is Red Dwarf

2. Lorne?
6. Bender?
10. Cat?

I really have no idea :)
Jacobyak_boy on April 5th, 2005 08:52 am (UTC)
Lorne is absolutely correct.
Bender would be my third favourite, with Zoidberg coming in second.
The cat, no, but he is an awesome character.
Steph_megalomania_ on April 5th, 2005 01:26 pm (UTC)
Yey for getting one right :)

Will have to come back later when the Futurama one's been guessed. I'm quite curious now.
Mr Sinisterglintsinisterglint on April 5th, 2005 07:12 am (UTC)
2. Oz
5. Tony Blundetto (Steve Buscemi)
6. Bender
Jacobyak_boy on April 5th, 2005 09:01 am (UTC)
Oz is in Angel for about thirty seconds in one episode.

Whatever season of The Sopranos Steve Buscemi is in, I haven't seen it.
I've only seen as far as Season 4.

See my response to _megalomania_ for your last answer.

Sorry, all wrong again.

Mikmareth_redorb on April 6th, 2005 12:19 am (UTC)
Yeah, I can't stand Riker either.

You got one!
Although there are a fairly limited number of recurring characters on Firefly, so it was only a matter of time.

Although, that goes double for Red Dwarf, and you're already repeating answers that have already been given!

Kaylee is right, the rest are wrong.
Mikmareth_redorb on April 6th, 2005 12:32 am (UTC)
Meh. I'll stop now. I've got one.
