More interesting characters

Posted on Friday, March 23, 2012 in Fandom

I decided there was no reason I should limit myself to characters from tv shows still being made, so I began to think of more characters I like, this time from older tv series. Here’s my next list:

From the British tv series All Creatures Great and Small, Tristan Farnon, played by Peter Davison. This guy’s really got charm and like Jack Harkness he uses it to meet partners (in Tristan’s case, women only). I love the way he treats his university studies – casually, convincing his brother he passed exams he really flunked, but effortlessly re-taking the exams later and eventually graduating. Naturally he becomes a vet just like his brother. As most of you probably know, there’s a Dr Who connection, since Peter Davison played the fifth Doctor and his daughter made a guest appearance in one of the later seasons, playing another Doctor’s daughter. She’s also married to the guy playing that Doctor (Ten) in real life.

From the 1980’s cop series Miami Vice, Detective Sonny Crockett. This guy is really cool, dresses well, lives on a boat, and – need I mention that – he’s hot. I’m currently watching this series on DVD and I just love the music, maybe not the clothes as much, but the general atmosphere (though Florida wouldn’t be my first choice when it comes to vacations.)

From Star Trek – Spock – (though my favorite series were TNG and Voyager). Somehow, even when I was a little kid I always loved Spock. Dare I say that I didn’t think much of TOS and really dislikes Enterprise and the movie? Having said that, I feel I should also mention movie-Uhura. Spock and Uhura were the only good things about the movie (well, old Spock too).

Moving on to the 1990’s, there are almost too many people to choose between, but I’ll try to restrain myself.

Since you’ve probably heard of these people, I’ll just mention their names.

Fox Mulder from the X files.
MIchael Guerin from Roswell (I just love all that angst).

Now the earlier parts of the 2000’s (it’s getting easier to pick my favorites, since there’s so much less to choose between):

From Veronica Mars (excellent series, at least the first two seasons), Cindy ‘Mac’ Mackenzie. She’s a computer genius who helps Veronica on many of her cases. We should have seen more of this girl, she was great.

From Heroes – Hiro, of course, such a great guy and really sweet and kind of cute. I also can’t resist mentioning Peter Petrelli and Mohinder Suresh (who are really hot and of course interesting too.) Oh, and little Micah was really cute and a good actor.

And that’s it. For later favorites see the post before this. I’d love to hear about your favorites too.
