      We have a thread for our favourite film characters but not one for the small screen, to my knowledge, so who are your favourites and why?

      Fisrt up from me is what I think is the greatest US President, fictional or otherwise, and a fantastic role from Martin Sheen.

      Josiah 'Jed' Bartlet.

      He actually was only supposed to be a recurring character in The West Wing but apparently Sheen impressed so much Aaron Sorkin started to write him more into the show and I'm glad he did as you can't think of The West Wing without Jed.

      Probably going to date myself a bit but my favorite of all time is Tom Selleck as Thomas Magnum on Magnum P. I.

      I'm a big fan of Steve McGarrett on Hawaii 5-0, the current one played by Alex O'Loughlin.

      Also loved Desmond on Lost. Henry Ian Cusick.

      Been watching a little Grimm on my phone, as of late, Silas Weir Mitchell, who the Prison Break aficionados will recognise as the actor who played Haywire, absolutely knocks his role on this show, as Monroe - a Wieder Blutbad, out of the park. Hits a sweet spot for me, sits kind of mid-range between Buffy and Supernatural with a touch of the crime procedural.  Definitely not for all, but I'm sure it will work for a few geeks like me, who are definitely out there.

      Rewatching Breaking Bad and I know I mentioned Mike Ehrmantraut before in here but I also forgot how much I really like Hank and how his character develops over the seasons.

      Dean Norris does a great job here.

      Francis J Underwood.

      Gloriously evil and compelling and could well end up being my favourite TV character of all time.

      Spacey plays his role with relish and I can't believe it took me this long to watch House of Cards.

      Some excellent shouts in here:

      Danny in Bloodline
      Frank Underwood in House of Cards
      Homer Simpson

      I would also add:

      Brian Potter in Phoenix Nights
      David Brent in The Office - I didn't like him and I'd hate to have a boss like him but he was still a good character nonetheless
      Frank Spencer in Some Mothers Do Ave'em
      Mr Rigsby (Leonard Rossiter) in Rising Damp
      Norman Stanley Fletcher in Porridge
      Hank Moody in Californication
