We watch television to allow our minds to relax and find good entertainment to decompress our stress level. As us normal folk live out a daily grind, seemingly repeating each and every day, the television shows we watch give us a corridor into a subconscious desire we have to be someone else. Many times, fans live indirectly through their favorite characters on the small screen. We watch with regularity to escape our normal days and thrive through their more exciting encounters. These characters have no bounds whereas we have many controls that limit what we can and cannot do.
Television has provided us with some amazing shows over the years, spearheaded by amazing leading characters. These characters have provided fans with a lot of excitement and a tremendous time of investment. These characters often draw us into the program and we unknowingly watch the shows to see what is going to happen with them next. The leading characters are so dynamic and intense that we can’t take our eyes off them. It is these characters that we subconsciously love.
When we watch a dynamic character on screen, we quietly envy their actions, their attitudes and their relentless willingness to break the rules. Inside, we all wish we could break free of the day-to-day routine and live a more exciting life. These characters can seemingly do no wrong and often times are able to circumvent the threats around them. Sure, it’s unrealistic, but it’s fun to watch. These characters can break rules we only dream about. These are 10 Awesome Television Characters We Wish We Could Be.
10 Jackson “Jax” Teller – Sons of Anarchy
9 Barney Stinson – How I Met Your Mother
8 Tony Soprano – The Sopranos
7 Nucky Thompson – Boardwalk Empire
6 Don Draper – Mad Men
5 Jack Bauer – 24
4 Ray Donovan – Ray Donovan
3 Angus MacGyver – MacGyver
2 Michael Westen – Burn Notice
1 Thomas Magnum. – Magnum P.I.
No star on a show had it better than Tom Selleck as Thomas Magnum. The premise has him living in the guest house of a ridiculously awesome beach front home in Hawaii. He is able to come and go as he pleases and lives the life of luxury. He has amazing toys to play with like a Ferrari GTS, and the grounds where he lives features the greatest amenities money can afford. Magnum enjoys many beautiful women while merely having to work as a private detective at his leisure. Selleck’s iconic mustache and Hawaiian button down shirts gave Magnum’s character just the right touch. In the 1980s, everyone wanted to be Magnum P.I. and every woman wanted a piece of Selleck.
