I was given the letter "S" by eeyore1017  to list 5 fictional characters and make comments about them. Here I go:

Type your cut contents here.

Well, I was excited about getting the letter "S" chiefly for this character

1. Michael Samuelle from "La Femme Nikita"

LFN was my first major fandom experiance, and I loved the show madly.  I even went to several LFN Cons (great fun!).  And most of my love for the show was tied up in the character of Michael Samuelle.  Super-spy, trainer, damaged soul, lover, fighter, protector, tragic hero, villian....Michael wore all those hats and more.  Actor Roy Dupuis choose to play Michael in such a quiet, still way that the only clues you got to his feelings were in his eyes, and his deeds.  An unbelievable character in a show that never quite got the attention it really deserved.

2. "Sawyer" aka James Ford - Lost

Oh, how I love Sawyer.  My favorite character from the first season, and my favorite character still.  This could've been a very cliched, one note character, but instead I find Sawyer one of the most human, compassionate characters on the island.  Josh Holloway does an amazing job with him.  I will 'ship SKate, but only because Sawyer loves her, and he's had a shit life, and I want him to be happy.  I'm just not sure Kate is the answer for that....how about Juliet?

3. Buffy Summers - Buffy, The Vampire Slayer

OK, so this is a bit predictable for a pick.  I always loved Buffy's strength of character, her resolve, and her dedication to service.  I also admired her fierce loyalty to friends and family, even when most people would've pitched the obnoxious younger sister off a roof.  SMG brought tremendous gravitas to the role.  The scenes between Buffy and Angel still get to me.  Though SMG had chemistry with almost everyone.

4. Stanley Richmond - Jericho

I loved Jericho.  And the bastards cancelled it.  Twice!  And Stanley was one of my most favorite characters.  He was simple, and sweet, but his scenes with Mimi, and his sister always made my heart hurt a little.  Stanley was a character I wanted to keep watching.  I'm so bummed that he and Mimi never made it to the altar before the network ax fell.

5. Steven Hyde - That 70's Show

This is one of those shows that ran for a good long time, below the radar.  I liked a lot of the characters, but if I had to count on a charater to crack me up it was always Red, or Hyde.  If I could find a guy with this sort of dry wit and casual cool, I'd be a happy gal.  The actor always had spot on delivery.

If anyone is interested in giving this a go, let me know, and I'll give you a letter. :)

I like Sawyer too, but I guess I've always wanted Kate to be with Jack. Maybe this is because I never saw the hot cage sex between Sawyer and Kate? It could also be because I'm a fan of Matthew Fox so I want Jack to have some romance in his life.
I would probably really like BtVS if I watched it but I never did. I'm still not really sure why. Someday I will have to rent the DVDs...

I'm surprised you didn't use "Superman" as one of your five! :-)

I'm not a fan of Jack on "Lost". At all. He's the very reason I have a hard time staying with that show.

I didn't use Superman because really, I like Clark Kent more then the whole Superman deal. Go figure. LOL

My complaints about Lost are that it moves too slow and it's too damn intricate. I stopped watching the show for about a season and a half and then decided to tune back in. I know most things, but there are nuances here and there that I know I'm missing. Obviously, you can't really be a casual viewer with this show. When Lost ends, there better be a BIG pay-off of some sort and not an ending that leaves us all saying WTF?!?!

I can understand liking CK more than Superman. He's a lot easier to relate to then a guy in tights flying around with his underwear outside his clothes! :-)

Lost can be a chore to follow. I'll keep watching, because I've watched it so far. But really, I think they need to start making some big moves.

Am I the only one who has never seen even a single episode of Buffy or Angel? And I don't know why, but I always keep mixing up SMG with that actress who played Sabrina the Teenage Witch. :p

Quite surprised there's no Superman on the list too, hehe.

LOL, I don't want to be too predictable, do I?

I think I got into a very "tv character" mindset. I should've expanded my horizons, maybe.
Sep. 8th, 2008 04:18 am (UTC)
Nope, you're not alone. I've never seen Buffy or Angel. :)
Sep. 8th, 2008 06:00 am (UTC)
Like SPN, they're definitely among those shows I keep seeing people raving about. :)
Sep. 8th, 2008 03:47 am (UTC)
Oh my god Michael! I love La Femme Nikita.
Sep. 8th, 2008 03:50 am (UTC)
YAY!!!! ::bounces with you:: I was totally obsessed with that show. My God, the conversations that fandom got into were amazing and intense. And I adored Michael. But me and Nikita had our disagreements, LOL But there's no denying that Nikita and Michael were probably one of the most chemistry-laden TV couples you'll ever see.
Sep. 8th, 2008 09:58 pm (UTC)
Chemistry-laden is putting it mildly lol. I remember wondering how my tv screen didn't melt. Guh.

Oh, I know. They were SEX-Y!!!! Just the way he would stare at her mouth was off-the-charts Hot!

This was a fun meme! I liked reading your answers. Even if I've never seen any of these shows. :D
Sep. 8th, 2008 01:33 pm (UTC)
Well, in a way thats good. I get to be different!
Sep. 8th, 2008 04:56 am (UTC)
Oh, Buffy. I quite liked her (and the show).
Sep. 8th, 2008 01:34 pm (UTC)
Yeah, Buffy kicked ass. I actually liked the show Angel better. But that doesn't take away from what a good character Buffy was.
Sep. 8th, 2008 01:00 pm (UTC)
This is such a cute meme. ^_^ I'm not sure if I'll have the time to do it, but maybe you can assign me a letter? Hopefully I'll be free to finish it.
Sep. 8th, 2008 01:35 pm (UTC)
OK, I bestow upon you the letter "L"
Sep. 8th, 2008 03:16 pm (UTC)
Ah, Buffy. Only my favoritest show, like, everrr. ::mourns::
Sep. 8th, 2008 03:56 pm (UTC)
And it was a damned good show. I often wonder what SV would've been like in the hands of Joss Whedon. I don't think he would've lost site of Clark, thats for sure.
Sep. 8th, 2008 09:03 pm (UTC)
I already have one meme to put up, but I wouldn't mind doing another, in like a day or so. Maybe by the end of the week? Memes are fun!
Sep. 8th, 2008 09:23 pm (UTC)
OK, then I give you the letter "D" :)
Sep. 9th, 2008 04:35 am (UTC)
Ok cool....
