I have watched my share of television. I always try to find characters I relate to, some series feature a character I relate to more than others. I’m going to share 10 of mine, feel free to share some of yours, or let me know if you relate to some of them, too! I am strictly relegating this to television series.
10. Olivia Dunham: Fringe
Bad things happened to her, things she doesn’t remember. A man spends his life trying to convince her he truly loves her. I pled, yet simple, just trying to do her job, but she gets caught up in a mess. She also usually fixes it and somehow learns something along the way.
9. Bernadette Rostenkowski: The Big Bang Theory
8. Lily Aldrin: How I Met Your Mother
7. Julia Braverman: Parenthood
6. Juliet Burke: Lost
5. Cristina Yang: Grey’s Anatomy
4. Rory Gilmore: Gilmore Girls
3. Pam Beesly: The Office
I like Pam. She’s entirely ordinary. Normal life. Normal things happen to her. She’s witty and friendly, she doesn’t stir the drama pot.
2. Shawn Hunter: Boy Meets World
The only male to make the list. I grew up watching Shawn Hunter grow up on television and hoping and praying he’d turn out okay in the end because I needed to know I’d turn out okay in the end. Spoiler: We did.
1. Monica Gellar: Friends
