So EW did a list of their 25 best characters on TV right now. I will list out the characters that made the cut for you to see. I also decided to go one step further and pick my favorite 5 of those listed. This was way harder than I anticipated but first here are the 25 in no particular order:

1.  Frank Underwood – House of Cards

2.  Selina Meyer – Veep

3.  Sherlock Holmes – Sherlock

4.  Alison Hendrix – Orphan Black

5.  Arya Stark – Game of Thrones

6.  Mindy Lahiri – The Mindy Project

7.  Ichabod Crane – Sleepy Hollow

8.  Mellie Grant – Scandal

9.  Diane Lockhart – The Good Wife

10. Sophia Burset – Orange is the New Black

11. Roger Sterling – Mad Men

12. Ron Swanson – Parks & Recreation

13.  Adam Sackler – Girls

14. Tina Belcher – Bob’s Burgers

15. Stephen Colbert – The Colbert Report

16. Ilana Wexler – Broad City

17. Captain Ray Holt – Brookly Nine-Nine

18. Sterling Archer – Archer

19. Boyd Crowder – Justified

20. Phil Dunphy – Modern Family

21. Louie C.K – Louie

22. Sue Heck – The Middle

23. Phillip Jennings – The American

24. Norma Bates – Bates Motel

25. Erlich Bachman – Silicon Valley

Ok, so those are the 25. I tried to decide what to base my criteria on. How great the character is being portrayed? How much I like the character? Who evokes the most emotion from me? Who is most enjoyable? I still came to no conclusion but these are the characters that stood out to me and I guess are my 5 favorites from the list (no particular order):

The menacing Frank Underwood from House of Cards

The bad bitch in charge in the formerly known as Lockhart & Gardner, Diane Lockhart

This has nothing to do with the fact that I am a Cumberbitch. This really is a fascinating character to watch. I mean who else can deliver a speech like the one found here – http://www.taynement.site/sherlocks-best-man-speech/

Roger Sterling is the comedic relief on an otherwise quite serious “Mad Men”. He refuses to grow up and it’s a delight for us to watch.

We’ve watched this tom boy grow as she faces tragedy upon tragedy. Arya Stark is a favorite of many on Game of Thrones.

So there’s my 5. It was a tough call. Some, I have to admit didn’t make it because I don’t watch the shows. Some of my runners up were Phillip Jennings, Alison Hendrix and Mellie Grant. Who would make your list? whether on this list or not?

From this list, my Top 5 are (in alphabetical order):

1. Adam (Girls)
2. Arya (Game of Thrones)
3. Phil (Modern Family)
4. Sue (The Middle)

Because this is me being me, I would like to replace some of EW favorites with my Favorites from the following shows (in order by how it’s listed):
4. Helena (Orphan Black)
8. Huck (Scandal)
10. Crazy Eyes (Orange is the New Black)
25. A tie between Richard and Dinesh (Silicon Valley)

That was fun.
