People Break Down Which Television Characters Had The Best Character Development

With so many wonderful characters on television, it's hard to pinpoint which character had the best arc throughout a show's seasons.


My friends know that my favorite TV drama was Felicity. She was an extremely awkward girl who followed her high school crush all the way from California to New York just so she could be close to him.

Sure, her intentions were characteristic of a stalker, but let's face it, we've all at some point had our Ben Covingtons in our lives. How can her intentions not be relatable?

What's great about her character was that she came into her own as a young, independent adult navigating life in the Big Apple, without sacrificing her affable temperament we've come to love so much.

Curious to hear about input from others, Redditor FEZ3 asked:

"What TV show character had the best character development?"

The Hour-Longs

The following characters strongly resonated with these Redditors.

From M*A*S*H

"Major Charles Winchester from M*A*S*H."

"He came from a rich family in Boston. He was born into a wealthy Republican family; He was a Boston Brahmin who went to Harvard medical school. He believed he was not suited to be in army service with the plebes, of an Army surgical unit."

"Then we see other characteristics about him. His family sends him ridiculously expensive chocolate for Christmas. He doesn't share that with anyone. His friends think he is being selfish. Turns out he was donating the candy to a charity so kids in war torn Korea can taste what 'real chocolate' tastes like."

"He gets pissed off at an officer who makes fun of a solider who stutters. Turns out Charles's sister has a terrible stutter, but listening to the tapes that she sends him was one of the few things kept him sane in war-torn Korea."

"The most moving episode was the one with the chocolate. Turns out the orphanage was selling the candy, at black market prices, instead of giving it to the kids. Charles corners the charity guy and yells at him. Then the guy apologizes and explains, yeah the chocolate may give the kids a moment of joy, but now we have enough money to buy the orphanage rice and vegetables for a month."

"Charles says HE is the one who should apologize. 'How can we expect a child to enjoy a dessert, when he didn't have a meal'".

"That was an amazing story arc."

The Mad Men Ensemble

"Honestly, a handful of characters from Mad Men would definitely qualify. That show was an absolute masterpiece at character development."

"Peggy from the beginning to end is great."

AMC Must Sees

AMC was where viewers would tune in for these wild and compelling characters.

The Spaghetti Western

"Walter White."

"I'm surprised how far down in this section Pinkman is. As amazing as Walter White was, Pinkman's character made me continue watching the show in later seasons and El Camino, just to see how things ended for him."

"From Vague Paraplige to Successful idiot."

We have such a luxury of binge-watching shows now.

Back in the day, viewers had to wait a week to see what would happen to specific characters on regular network TV.

And season cliffhangers? Forget it.

I can't imagine waiting for months to see if Felicity chose Ben or Noel at the end of that masterful first season. Now we can just revisit her on Hulu and watch all four seasons!


People Break Down The One Activity They'll Never Try Again

Sometimes you only need to experience something once, to know it's a never again situation.

I always say, try everything once.

Well, now that I'm older, a caveat to that is... try it all within reason.

How many things have we all walked away from saying the one time experience will suffice?

In fact, knowing when to say no is one of life's wisest choices.

Redditor Croakied wanted to discuss the times we've all said... "once was enough!" They asked:

"What is one thing that you will NEVER do again?"

There is an age old question that has been getting more traction surrounding sex for partners the last decade or so.

Were we really meant to only be with one person forever?

There are so many flavors to taste.

Many of us sometimes fantasize about what we would do to our worst enemies, especially in the moments when they're actively making our lives worse.

While most of us would never actually do any of the things that we contemplate instead of screaming at that super annoying person at the office, we do get pretty creative with the ideas.
