Introduction:There is a reason people by DVRs and set their schedule around their television sets. It isn't the commercials. It is the characters that we invite into our homes every week.
The tortured soul Doug Ross, played by Oscar-winner George Clooney, charmed his way into our hearts. His boyish charm and constant crusading for children made everyone fall for this hunky doctor.
Who doesn't love Lucy? She could get into more trouble by sitting on her hands (or stomping grapes) than anyone. With her heart of gold, she managed to get out of that trouble - one way or another.
Almost everyone can relate to this middle child. Not the perfect oldest daughter and not the youngest and cute one, Jan suffered in ways only she can imagine. We probably owe her the term "middle child syndrome."
John Ross, Sr. was evil to the bone. Without any regard for anyone, he cut deals and broke hearts. Even those who didn't follow the night time soap "Dallas" were thrilled when Kristen pulled the trigger and shot him.
Benjamin Franklin Peirce. Not much more needs to be said about this doctor who kept everyone in stitches on the hit show "M*A*S*H." Without his fight against injustice and love of the ladies, the new genre "dramedy" may have never been born.
Whether we love them or hate them, there are some television characters that are unforgettable. They have woven their way into our hearts and minds; in some cases, they have even made their way into our lives.
