TV Meme

From alaria_lyon

The TV Show Meme
1. Post a list of 10 TV shows you watch (current or cancelled!)
2. Have your friends list guess your favourite CHARACTER from each show
3. When guessed, tell us why you like that character

1. Firefly
2. Battlestar Galactica
3. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
4. The West Wing
5. Boston Legal
6. Babylon 5
7. Slayers
8. Angel
9. Sports Night
10. Rurouni Kenshin

This is not strictly my list of top ten favorite shows, so much as the list of favorite shows I could come up with off the top of my head.  But still, they're all good stuff.

I haven't been posting much lately.  Lots of time split between work, warcraft, and social time.  I guess that's a good mix.  Tonight, going to word games.

Ok, time to embrass myself by guessing horribly wrong:

1. Mal or Kaylee. Since I have to guess one... um... Mal.
2. Don't watch, so no clue.
3. It's been too long since I watched, so no clue.
4. Will
5. Don't watch
6. Didn't watch
7. Zel (random guess)
8. Fred
9. Natalie
10. Kenshin (also a random guess)

Will started out extremely strong, and got some great scenes... The "calling rain" scene was some great stuff. :) And I even liked some of the stuff he did once he was on the VP's staff.

I suppose I should have picked answers before posting, eh? I think Donna was my first choice though, for her origin story, for her general tenacity, and for her ability to bring Josh back down to earth. But it's a tough call.

I wonder if I have the right to call West Wing one of my favorite shows, though, if I haven't been watching at all this season. Now that I think about it.

Ooooh, fun! But I've only seen the first five shows.

1. I'm guessing you liked the doctor guy (sorry, been too long since I've seen it to remember names). The one with the loopy sister. I'm not sure why I think that, though.

2. Hm, tough call. I think you probably like Commander Adama?

3. I think it's either Bashir or Odo. I'll go with Bashir cuz you have an LJ user pic of him. :)

4. Agreed, Will Baily.

5. How can you not love Denny Crane???? It must be him.

Adama is a rock. Plain and simple.

And, of course, "What's my name???" I can't really imagine doing the things Denny Crane *or* Alan Shore do, but I love seeing Shatner up there on the screen flexing his comic muscle so fiercely. The fact I can drop the sentence, "Shatner won an Emmy," into conversation, totally makes Denny Crane the man.

{snark} An lj post is not an rsvp {/snark}

{grammar aside} you can tell I think "L.J." not "live journal" when I type lj by my choice of 'an' rather than 'a'. {/grammar aside}

1. cpt
2. crew chief
3. garrick
4. Will
5. Denny Crane
6. Ivonava
7. Zelgadis (also random guess)
8. Fred
9. Jeremy
10.Yahiko Miyouhin (random guess)

Plain and simple Garak truly is too fun to watch. Bashir and Ezri are close on his heels because they both had that minor endearing clueless streak that they got to grow out of on screen...

> 3. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

Ooh. Bashir is a good guess. But it's too obvious. I would actually say either Quark or ... less likely, Ezri Dax. Or maybe I'm just guessing *my* favorite characters :) Though Garrick is also a good guess. Or Kira. Or no no no, the Grand Negus. Good ol' Wallace Shawn. Oh, I give up. (Wait, what about those three genetically modified mental patients that show up in a couple episodes?)

> 6. Babylon 5

Vir is the assistant Centauri guy? If so, I'm going with Vir. Totally.

> 9. Sports Night

Jeremy. No question.

Good ol' Vir. Nothing beats Vir. :)

1. Firefly == Kaylee
2. Battlestar Galactica == Baltar or Cmdr. Adama. c'mon, who doesn't like Baltar?!
3. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine == Kira
4. The West Wing == Will Baley, see below :)
5. Boston Legal == no idea. Spader's char?
6. Babylon 5 == you'd think I would know this. Vir Cotto?
7. Slayers == Lina Inverse? s'only one I know ...
8. Angel == Wesley
9. Sports Night == Jeremy
10. Rurouni Kenshin == no idea

The only reason you say Wesley for 8 is the Clone High robot, isn't it? :-)

Also, I'll say that my LJ icons are more chosen for identifying with the person, which in some cases leads to "favorite" status, and in some cases doesn't.

I will say that you got Sports Night right, because I can identify with Jeremy, *and* he gets to date Natalie... :)

Oh yeah, and totally Kaylee. That smile and those instinctual smarts combined with naivete... Whedon hit a solid gold combo with that girl there.
