12 Amazingly Cool TV Characters
Even though TV shows have existed for a long time now, it’s safe to say that we are living in the golden age of TV shows. Lately, there have been so many new awesome shows that we don’t really know which one to commit to. So we usually just start watching twenty shows at the same time, hoping to catch up on all of them. And with the Internet, it is now easier than ever to get a hold of these popular shows.
But what is it that makes us so drawn to some TV shows more than the others? It’s the characters, of course. Over the course of the show, we identify with them and empathize with them. But there are some characters that are simply stand out from all the rest and we can’t help but using their catchphrases in real life. These are the 12 coolest TV characters.
1. Angus MacGyver – MacGyver
One of the early classics MacGyver aired from 1985 to 1992. This show was very popular all around the planet and received a loyal following. The show follows Angus MacGyver, a secret agent on his adventures working for the U.S. government.
As many other characters now, MacGyver plays on the fact that he is incredibly smart and resourceful – only, he was pretty much the first one to start the trend of such characters. He is a scientist and possesses encyclopedic knowledge of physics which allows him to make something out of nothing and solve even the most impossible problems. Another thing MacGyver is famous for is his hatred of violence and guns. He is strongly against using guns and he always carries his Swiss Army knife with him and attacks only in defense.
What makes MacGyver so noteworthy is his sensitive nature. He is not just another macho man fighting the bad guys. He prefers practical solutions and relying on his wits. He also cares about the less-privileged and expresses his emotions in times of tragedy.
