TV Top Ten

Since imitation is the greatest form of flattery, I've decided to flatter my Twitter buddy Julie. Cause I'm stealing her idea. I'm announcing my top 10 TV characters of all time, and then asking you all to tell me your favorites in the comments. No one is being tagged. Whoever wants to play along, go ahead. If not, I'll try not to be offended. Sniff, sniff.

Ok, I'll go first...

1. Buffy Summers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
2. He-man, He-man and the Masters of the Universe

7. Murdock, A-Team
