When Buffy was in its high school years, I was very reminiscent of Xander.  Although I never had a skateboard that I rode once in the first episode and then never again.

Well I'll repeat my answer from the thread that started this:

OK not due to general out look (or narrowness of a certain part of my anatomy) but more due to the fact that I often have to sort things out for people who shouldn't need said thing sorting out (my siblings mostly).

Hank Hill, While sometimes he's in the wrong on King of the Hill, there are many episodes where I watch it and can feel at least a little fellow feeling with him.

Oh that and one of my best friend's a conspiracy nut whose wife works on local TV and is having an affair with a Native American dude (sorry Dave, you had to find out sometime) ;)

Buffy Summers.

Season 5 really hit me, and I could definitely relate to the inner struggle she was presented with in that particular season. In my case,  I didn't want to take on the order of trying to patch up the unmigated disaster that was my metaphorical world, my family, and I knew that walking away from it wouldn't be the wrong thing to do...however, it would've been unbearable. Hence I sacrificed more than I could've ever imagined for it. Much like Buffy and her sacrifice in the finale of S5. It's probably an underpinning on why it's my favorite season.

When all is said and done...

She He saved the world family a lot.

 :)

Oh and I'm somewhat funny, quirky, instinctively acute, and cute.   ;)

I'm Buffy! *raises arms*

Karen Walker from Will & Grace.  I tend to say very bitchy things that people just laugh off as me trying to be funny, but I actually mean every word, but deep down I have a good heart.  And I drink a lot.

I've often said Seth Cohen is a boy-me, except I hate Death Cab A LOT.

And Willow Rosenberg.  Especially in the first couple seasons, I'm very much Willow.

Unfortunately, Larry David's pseudo-character from "Curb Your Enthusiasm" minus the part of his character that's funny.

In high school, it was Wesley after he had his throat slit (around season 3 or 4)

I guess I sorta relate to Dexter, from DEXTER (which might be why I don't like him)

ooh, and Shawn Spencer from Psych........... probably more so than Dexter

I'd like to say someone noble like Buffy or Sarah Conner, etc, but the fact of the matter is that I've never related to any character on any tv show in my entire life more than I do with Bender from Futurama. He represents everything I'd be if I was not wanting to spend all my time in jail and in AA.  >:D

This is a tough one.  I'm kinda JD from Scrubs in that I'm geeky and can't stop daydreaming at work.  Add a little of Greg the Bunny's personality maybe.

Danny Tanner cuz he must deal with a lot of life's challenges coming at him from angles and he just rolls with the punches just like me.

And remember, he was not gay.

As with anything Post-Full House Bob Saget, it's NSFW.

His stand up act has always been NSFW... even before and during Full House.

In younger days I was frequently told I looked like and had the personality of Chandler.  I had pretty much the same luck with women as well.

I know, but its still strange to me to see after being raised on Full House and America's Funniest Home Videos.

The reverse is true for me.  I saw his stand up routine first so it was strange for me once he was sanitized for television.   :D

Yeah, before Full House I was too young for such filthy talk.  The first indication I had of Bob working blue was his cameo in Half Baked.  Then I saw the Aristocrats and nearly lost my friggin mind listening to that filthy filthy joke from him.

Most of the time I'm some strange hybrid between Tim Canterbury/Jim Halpert from the various Offices (Offici?), and Dave Nelson from NewsRadio.

When I'm interested in working on something, I tend to obsess neurotically over it. When I'm not interested, I goof off. I don't really slack off, I just do my work irreverently. Either way, I spout dry one-liners.

There's also a slight dose of Cliff Clavin (what with the social awkwardness and the useless trivia) and a touch of Frasier and/or Niles Crane (what with the slight geek snobbery/distaste for some of the modern mainstream).

Who else is amazed that the mail-woman(S Epatha Merkerson) went on to be in Terminator 2 and later became a Major Character on Law and Order? I would like to be represented by her agent.

Without thinking about it too much, I identify most with Earl from My Name is Earl.

I almost always try to do the right thing, despite the fact that I'm surrounded by the depraved. I live in a crappy town with ghetto people. I've been wronged by a woman when I didn't deserve it. Even though doing the right thing never gets me anywhere financially or socially, it just feels right to do it. And my hair looks just like, but with no mustache.

House, if only I could get addicted to morphine and convince people to actually like me for being an asshole.

I'm also really big on Shatner in Boston Legal, I'm already kind of senile at age 22.
