Interesting topic...

Lantern Jack, didn't you say in another thread you're like Kramer and George from Seinfeld? I'll compare you to them, then.

So, who am I like?

My, aren't we wheedling for compliments:)

Sorry, companero. Doesn't work that way. It's a spontaneous thing. No prompted posts.

Okay, maybe this one time:

Peter, Peter Tork's character on The Monkees.

Holy God, mandingo! You've never heard of Michael Bluth!?! Brace yourself, while I mock you with impunity:)

Seriously, put short, Arrested Development is a literate, laugh-trackless comedy about a family of spoiled elite, whose Don Corleone figure (played by master bumbler, Jeffrey Tambor) is jailed for fraud or some such white-collar wickedness and Michael Bluth is the only sane, sensible character, the one who Gorilla glues the crazies into loose conformity, the shrill voice of reason:)

This is the first time I can recall thinking that I don't watch enough TV...

I'm going to say that reph is Margaret Warner from the PBS Evening News Hour.

Maryn, aware that such viewing habits make her sound all hoity-toity unless you know how many hours of Law and Order she watches in a typical week

I confess that I can't see the similarity at all.



6) Poet In a Hat is Jonathan Kent, John Schneider's character on Smallville.
How good to be included! I don't understand -- I've never seen more than three minutes of the show -- but hey, I'm on the marquee, so thanks, Mr. DeMille...

Isn't Bender the wise-***, android dystopianist on the show? Seems to fit Haskins to a serrated T.

As for Jonathan Kent, he's the moral linch pin in Clark's life, the man torn by middle-aged doubts and the weight of his own self-sacrificial choices, but who always opt for the bright and narrow over the wide and easy. It's a supreme compliment:)

I don't see William as a wise-a55, but this is your vision, and I've been pm'd by someone who says you're spot-on.

Why thank you kindly. Not that I was suspicious -- I'm just ignorant!

I've been compared to a lot of people during my life, but I can honestly say that this one is a first.

JoeEkaitis is Troy McClure, as voiced by Phil Hartman, on the Simpsons:
"You may remember me from such threads as 'Penny for His Thoughts', 'Someone Mistook It for Reddi-Wip', and 'Classy Street Addresses'!"

I'm flattered to be compared to Aunt Hilda. She was one of my favorite characters.

it's quite a relief that such behind-the-scenes summits can work these types of things out.

Aren't you going to ask Poet to apologize for saying you aren't a wise-a$$?

I have to say, I do not watch TV. At all. I know a lot of people say that and don't mean it, but I cannot get decent reception for any station, so I just watch films. So I will have to recall back to the days when I did watch TV.

Lantern Jack is Special Agent Dale Cooper from Twin Peaks, possessing a staggering intellect, and a fascination with all of the things that usually go unnoticed, which leads others to view him as somewhat peculiar. All the while, he knows what he's doing, and he's solving more than just the mystery on the surface.

Poetinahat is Sheriff Harry S. Truman.

Optimus is FBI Agent Albert Rosenfield

Unique is Catherine Martell. (played by Piper Laurie, if that helps.)

William Haskins is Benjamin Horn.

Rhymegirl is Donna Hayward (Lara Flynn Boyle).

Robiea is Dr Jacoby.

And I...I am Laura Palmer.

I apologize that this is all from Twin Peaks, but I'm afraid it's the only show I've ever really followed.

And thanks Lantern for comparing me to Lana Lang! I know next to nothing about the show, but I know who she is, and that's a compliment.

Threads like this can drive over the shoulder and land in the ditch reeeal fast.

Shove me in the 'out of it" corner with Celia C. I don't watch enough TV to recognize any of the names in Lantern J's first post.

Jaycinth is Dr. Temperance Brennan (the forensic Doc on Bones).
Haskins is Michael Scofield on Prison Break (I could see him going to extremes for people and purpose - up to and including tattooing clever artistic architecture all over his body - he has the passion and the creativity for this.)
And ShadowFerret seems to remind me of Hal from Malcolm In The Middle.

I have never seen Malcolm in the Middle except for promos so I have no idea who Hal is.


My wife thinks I'm most like House. Or Red on That 70's Show. I tend to me more acerbic in real life.

I'm not much good on TV, but how about...

'Bleeding Gums Murphy' on the Simpsons, or
Ephraim, the prodigious outcast on Everwood

I don't watch much t.v. either, :) but find some of William Haskins' posts remind me of Dr Gregory House (Hugh Laurie, House).
