Baddest T.V. Character of all Time. 9

After an email strain with TLT and RT90, I thought of this:  Who is the baddest (bad meaning good, not bad meaning bad) T.V. Character of all time.  Who is the person who is dripping swagger, coolness, and the guy (let’s stick to males for this cargument) that every other guy wants to be.


What you got?

    I’m going to start with Captain Jean-Luc Picard. That guy is the epitome of badness. Even, when I go bald, I want to go bald like Picard.

    12 opened strong… Picard is a hard pick to beat.

    TheLongTalk would suggest that perhaps there’s a plateau of greatness, a piece of high ground where many can stand, side-by-side, but none would stand any higher then the other.

    If that’s not the case, then Captain Malcolm Reynolds just shot Picard in the face and kicked him off the mountain.

    Reynolds? No way, that guy is nothing but a panzy-soaked chump. Why can’t you ever be serious in our discussions/carguments?

    Reynolds? I still can’t get over that. I would rather be Jayne than Reynolds.

    Other top contenders could be:

    Tony Soprano

    Walter White

    Fox Mulder


    The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air


    John Locke


    Jack Baur

    Charlie Kelley

    Daryl from The Walking Dead (he should be high on this list, top 3)

    David Addison


    But honestly, if I could be any character from T.V. If I could be the “baddest man” (as Stephen A. Smith would say) its a pretty easy pick.

    I want to be Dexter.

      Fonzie? The Fresh Prince? Really? … plus John Locke (SPOILER to a show that ended 5 years ago) dies. You should always pick someone that lives.

    TLT is beyond serious.

    If you came, bare handed, across a bear in the wild and that bear was sleeping in a sunbeam, with a full belly, and nothing particular on its bear mind… and you tried to kill that bear, with your bare hands, you’d probably die. But you might, MIGHT, succeed at giving that bear a challenge.

    If you came upon a different bear. A bear slightly starved, a bear on the hunt, a bear running scared, a bear with cubs… and you tried to fight that bear… you wouldn’t stand a chance.

    Picard is the first bear, he’s older and wiser but he’s also happy and content in his safe world. Sure he’s sometimes attacked and he always wins, the same way that first bear does, but he’s never really savage.

    Reynolds is the second bear. He’s barely (Pun intended) hanging on. He lives his life in constant survival mode. He’s always hunted, always under attack. If he slips he dies and so does his entire crew… and don’t think that doesn’t weigh no him. He’s far, far more dangerous then Picard.

    TLT could expanded beyond Reynolds, although if the point is to pick the best, then there’s no point going any further then Mal.

    But on the great plateau of great, cool, bad arse characters stands also…

    Doctor Sam Beckett
    Deputy Marshal Raylan Givens, plus his smart mouthed coworker Tim Gutterson
    The Doctor
    Ron Swanson
    The Pie Maker.

      More TLT bad arse TV character picks.

      Perry Mason… undefeated champion of the courtroom

      Jim Belushi’s character from According To Jim… because he’s married to Courtney Thorne-Smith and frequently visited by Kimberly Williams Paisley… two next level hotties

      Jerry Seinfeld

    TheLongTalk is highjacking this post and asking… who is the Top TV Lady You’d Like To Spend Time With?

    Now this isn’t some sick, gross, pervert thing… this is who would you like to hang out with. Of all the TV Ladies out there, who would you call when you’re bored and want to do something fun?

    TLT’s Pick… Xena.

    She knows all kinds of cool people and she fights bad guys and stuff, plus she’d look out for me and make sure I made it home in one piece.
