Uh... I have lots. Like, seriously, a bucketload. It depends what effect you want me to demonstrate.

So, Mr. Carter from Cranford is probably the most swoonsome character ever (followed VERY closely by Fitzwilliam Darcy in the 1995 Pride and Prejudice.) John Crichton and Sam Tyler both ping my 'fish out of water' button --- have me empathising and being fascinated in, and adoring all at once. I'm more mad about both Arthur and Merlin from BBC's Merlin than I ever admit. Timothy McGee, Anthony DiNozzo, Tim Bisley, Maurice Moss, Sheldon Cooper all make me happy for completely different reasons. Dexter Morgan, Leroy Jethro Gibbs, Bender Bending Rodriguez, Gene Hunt, Rodney McKay and to large extents Shawn Spencer are the characters I love despite (and because of) their massive, massive flaws. I have serious love for David Suchet's portrayal of Hercule Poirot. And there will always be a part of me who thinks Spike Thomson from Press Gang was the greatest.

I can't choose.

But it's probably Sam. Something about Sam crawled under my skin and won't let go. I'm most likely one of his harshest critics and yet --- he is my character --- the one that speaks to me on every level.

Heh, I love your sneaky choice and it doesn't surprise me.

It'd be really weird to devote years of your life writing a character you detest :D

THIS. ♥

I spent the whole time, the entirety of his scenes going 'MY OVARIES CANNOT TAKE THIS' *faint* :D

Why am I not surprised? (Despite the stiff ha competition.)

You should be! Darn it! Why's everyone think I'm so predictable?

Because I am?

I love Press Gang and I'm not ashamed to admit that I'd have Spike as a future husband even to this day. :p

I rewatched some episodes a couple of years ago and LOVED IT and I have it on DVD around about here somewhere, so I should totally watch more.

Hee. I actually pulled out my DVDs and watched a few episodes last night. The two-parter with the gun siege and the one with the hypnotist are two of my favourites. :)

(Also all episodes have recently been uploaded to YouTube if you can't find your DVDs.)

Spike! I loved him so much. That episode with the girl trapped under the rubble made me cry SO MUCH.

That's one of my all-time favourite television episodes.

I had it on tape and used to rewatch it on a regular basis.

Seriously, Press Gang was one of the best children's TV shows of all time.

Heh. I've also got a "fish out of water" button, and John Crichton and Sam Tyler both ping it like mad. (I've just finished watching Adam Adamant Lives! which also set my "fish out of water" button a-pinging, as the eponymous hero is a Victorian adventurer frozen in time an woken up in swinging sixties London.) Maybe they should all join a "fish out of water" support group.

The weird thing is that I loved Sam quiiiite a bit before his life mirrored mine in terms of "oh hey, whole new world".

I am increasingly interested in your Adam Adamant! posts.

Well I've always felt a bit of an outsider... so no surprises at enjoying fishes out of water.

(I'm at the stage at wanting to share my Fannish Glee at Adam Adamant. It might not be to everyone's tastes, though, as the production standards are woeful and some of the attitudes are very dated. However it appears to be downloadable at a number of sites if you want to check it out - the first episode is "A Vintage Year for Scoundrels".)
