+ Post a list of 10 TV shows you watch/ed.
+ Have your friends list guess your favorite character from each show.
+ When someone guesses your favorite character, bold the title.
+ When guessed, tell us why you like that character.

1. House, MD -- House, without question. I'm just drawn to brilliant guys... and I'm drawn to wounded, vulnerable guys... and I'm drawn to blue-eyed guys... soooo I never had a chance :P hehe... He's beautifully broken, such a complex, fascinating character, and currently my biggest TV obsession.

2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer -- Spike
, of course! :) He's so passionate and intense, and when he falls in love, he falls *hard*! His love is his weakness, and there's such a beautiful vulnerability about him. Plus he's also snarky and funny and smart and brave and a host of other wonderful characteristics... and I haven't even mentioned yet that he's hot!!! hehe...

3. Scrubs -- Dr. Cox, definitely. I've always thought he's the comedy version of House (or House is the drama version of him, depending on who you ask ;) ). He's sharp-witted and sharp-tongued, and cares a lot more than he'd like people to think. He's also absolutely hilarious. And there's, again, that central theme that makes me fall for a character of secret vulnerability. He has a painful past that's shaped who he is, and loooads of issues... but that's what makes him interesting.

4. Ugly Betty -- Marc
,  because he's hilariously self-centered and can be cruel, but he's so sharp-witted with his cruelty. But there's a deeper layer than that. There's more to him than meets the eye at first. I love how even though he's very much subservient to Wilhemina, they're actually friends, and she depends on him a lot more than she'd like to admit. The scenes with Marc and Amanda together always rock. And yet I cried when Marc tried to come out to his mother, I cried for him. I love this character for so many reasons. :P

5. Dexter -- Dexter... He's so fascinating and complex to me, and there's subtle traces throughout the show that he's not exactly what he thinks he is. Yes, he's a killer, a monster, but he feels more than he thinks he does, loves even though he thinks he's not capable of it. I'm fascinated by his progression throughout the seasons, the changes in him, the way he's grown and shifted throughout the show, and I can't wait to see what happens to him next.

6. Lie to Me

7. How I Met Your Mother -- Barney Stinson
... Cocky and arrogant and sexy, with an underlying easily wounded heart... and played by the amazingly hot Neil Patrick Harris... what's not to love? I'm new to this show but I found myself instantly fascinated by Barney. He's definitely my favorite. :)

8. Law and Order: SVU -- Elliot Stabler... Mmmm, how could I resist the dark, moody, broody intensity of this character. He's got this underlying smoldering anger at the predators he stalks -- yes, I said stalks hehe -- and this sort of tortured vibe he gives off... and the episode where he was talking to the therapist about his childhood... ggaaaah, I fell apart... so the vulnerability I crave is there, too... love him sooo much :)

9. Queer as Folk -- Brian... yes, Brian fits the pattern already established in the previous entries, doesn't he? Cocky, arrogant, doesn't care what anyone thinks... except for when he does... He hides his vulnerable side a lot better than most, but it's still there. He has a tortured past, lots of issues and hurts, etc., and only a very select few (or more like two) can get through his walls to his heart. Not to mention the fact that he may possibly be THE most physically beautiful man I can recall seeing :P lol

10. Dollhouse -- Topher...
This is a very new fandom, so I haven't gotten to know all the characters that well yet, but Topher is funny, a little arrogant... he's like the boy who always got beat up in school, but he's smugly satisfied because look at him *now*, running the show at a high-tech secret organization like the Dollhouse, using his intellect to get him places. He's smart-mouthed and a little cocky, sarcastic... all traits that make me interested in a character.
