Monday Listicles: 10 Favorite Movie or TV Characters

Happy Monday, my friends!  Time for Monday Listicles!  Lazy weekend at our house.  Planted our vegetable garden with the kids’ help.  We bought so many plants I seriously think we will have to open our own Farmer’s Market.  But, the kids had a blast picking out the different plants, so it was worth it.  Now, on to the Listicles fun…

Today’s Listicle is 10 Favorite Characters in Movies or TV suggested by Lisa and Ashley.  Next week is the 100th Monday Listicles!  Wow!  So, in honor of the 100th anniversary, the topic 10 Things Great About Monday Listicles… OR anything else you want to list!

Have fun!

  1. OMG that video clip was hysterical….

    I LOVED Reese Witherspoon as Melanie Smooter, great movie babe

  2. Oh yes, honey, I DO know what you’re thinking. And you know I’m thinking the same thing.

  3. That was one of my favorite shows ever. That episode was a classic! When Johnny Fever is like the mall has just been bombed by turkeys… LOL.

  4. I’m so nice, I’d even SHARE.

  5. LOVE Jack Bauer. LOVE. Might have to re-watch 24 this summer. It was so good!!-The Dose Girls

  6. Did you hear they are coming out with another one… its called Live Another Day, but its only for 10 episodes or something crazy like that. Can’t wait.

  7. I never saw many episodes of WKRP (or most of your picks, actually) but after watching that hilarious clip, I’m sorry I didn’t!

  8. Love Sweet Home Alabama and Reese. I’m a sucker for a good chick flick. This week’s Listicle is making me just want to curl up on the couch and watch TV all week. 🙂

  9. WKRP!!!! Wow, flashback!! Loved that show as a kid!

  10. I know people gave Mamma Mia crap, but I loved that movie! My husband loves ABBA, so we bought that movie (we rarely own DVDs) for ourselves one year for Valentine’s Day!

  11. I love that you said Smooter and not Carmichael… true fan! 🙂

  12. Melanie Smooter was such a good character, but so was the one played by Josh Lucas – I liked seeing their banter. I used to watch WKRP in Cincinnati…with my Dad…and not by choice, but then I grew to like it. I think Barney Miller came on before or after it, or maybe I’m thinking about when the reruns came on – either way, I grew up watching shows like that….

    It’s so interesting to see how different everyone’s list is.

    Happy belated Listicles Monday!

  13. Bill was amazing in Lost in Translation! Great list.
