My top 50 favorite television characters in alphabetical order

Dennis Reynolds


I'm sick and bored, so let's do this nicki5 My rules:


1. I'm only picking one character per series (this led to some extremely regrettable omissions). 

2. Characters that originated in films, books, comic books, real life, etc. are not included, unless they were heavily adapted and popularized by the show. This means no Ash Williams, Johnny Lawrence, versions of Sherlock Holmes, etc.

3. If a character appeared in multiple shows, I pick them on the basis of the one listed series.
