This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic centers all around television. I honestly love television more than I should. I watch Netflix, Hulu, HBO. You name it, I probably watch it. And the one thing that makes a TV show for me are the characters, especially the sassy ones. Maybe it’s because I’m a very sassy person and they are characters after my own heart, or maybe I just enjoy a well-written banter. Either way here are my top ten favorite characters that you can enjoy on your own TV screens.
10. Castiel- Supernatural
Supernatural is my all time favorite show, and while the Winchester brothers will always have a special place in my heart, I love Castiel. He’s a sweet lil’ cinnamon roll, except when he’s super badass, but in general, I love him.
9. Jessica Day- New Girl
She’s awkward. She’s precious. I want her sense of style. Who’s that girl? It’s Jess!
8. Amelia Pond- Doctor Who
Honestly, my favorite lil’ Scottish ginger. I think Karen Gillan is one of the most beautiful people on this planet and she plays my favorite companion on Doctor Who, Amy Pond. She’s sassy, confident, and takes zero crap from anyone else.
7. Donna Meagle- Parks and Recreation
If there was any character on TV that I would want to be my best friend, it is Donna Meagle. Her wit is fantastic, confidence is through the roof, and anyone who supports my habit of treating myself has a gold star in my book.
6. Dustin Henderson- Stranger Things
It’s no surprise to my friends and family that Stranger Things is my favorite new show of the summer, and this little nugget is my favorite character from said show. He sometimes tends to be the literal only voice of reason in the show, plus he is precious!!
5. Tyrion Lannister- Game of Thrones
Most characters on Game of Thrones annoy the crap out of me. He’s the only one that doesn’t, to be honest. Plus, he’s hilarious and a wonderfully well-written character.
4. Sherlock Holmes- BBC’s Sherlock
I’d probably sell my soul for Benedict Cumberbatch to wink at my like that, but that is a completely different post. His portrayal of Sherlock Holmes is super on point. It’ll probably be 1,000 more years till we get season 4, but I am so down to wait.
3. Petra Solano- Jane the Virgin
This might be an unpopular opinion, especially if you have seen the show, but I love Petra. Her character is flawed but soooooooooooooooo well done. I think everyone hates Petra a little in season 1, but season 2? Favorite character on the show.
2. Mindy Lahiri- The Mindy Project
I have no words to add anything except to say that I love her. If there’s any character on this list that I can relate to the most? It’s Mindy Lahiri.
And the award for being the queen of literal sass goes to…
Any Character She’s Ever Played- American Horror Story
But that’s my list for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday! Do any of you also share my love for television and strong, sassy characters? Let me know in the comments below. Until next time!
