    The Fisher family on Six Feet Under, including Ruth, David, Nate, and Claire were so incredible in their roles.

    The Hendickson family in Big Love, Bill, Nicolette, Barb and Margene. Characters that seemed to actually live the part!
    Good point. I'd have to add Friends to my list. It was like hanging out with that ensemble every Thursday. My friends would all get together to watch the show.

    How about Fonzie? Happy Days would have been unbearable without the Fonz.

    The whole cast of All In The Family.

    Louie dePalma (Danny DeVito), Latka Gravas, Reverend Jim, et al on Taxi.

    I can't believe that no one has mentioned House, he's so painfully dysfunctional but somehow you still root for him.

    My short list:
    House
    Veronica Mars (So pleasantly surprised she was mentioned. The show, however well written it was, it just never caught on.)
    Carrie Bradshaw
    Johnny Drama (Entourage)
    Peyton Sawyer (One Tree Hill)

    I know I'll think of more once I post this!

    I argue with my 10 year old niece over whether Nick and Disney channel are better now or when I was 10 years old. I can barely get through some of her favorite shows on those networks anymore. The acting today seems so over the top and dramatic. That's what I loved most about Lucy and her shows, The Golden Girls...it just seemed so natural. You'd think you were watching a real interaction with the characters and if that was really their life. I think TV and movies were a lot better without so many re-takes and interferance with props and backdrops and stunts.

    I'm enjoying this thread, too. I couldn't believe some of the characters I forgot, and some that probably haven't even been mentioned yet! Definitely makes me long for these days of TV. At least back then, networks gave shows a chance, rather than cancelling them after 2 episodes

    Sally and Patrick from Coupling. I still hear the "Spiderman" song and smile.
