The heck is Recess and what is it doing in this quiz?
Oct 25th, 2012 at 19:33 GMT
Recess was great.
Oct 27th, 2012 at 20:46 GMT
Starbuck is not a girl!!
Oct 29th, 2012 at 00:28 GMT
Great quiz, and I liked the inclusion of quality cable shows.
Nov 26th, 2012 at 18:33 GMT
Aukyboy - On the most recent version of Battlestar Galactica, the character of Starbuck is a girl.

As much as I enjoyed a Lost character being included, Sawyer's name is James Ford.
Mar 1st, 2013 at 19:14 GMT
Yes, but he's commonly referred to as Sawyer and people who do not watch the show would possibly recognize Sawyer but not James.
Mar 1st, 2013 at 19:17 GMT
Good point, well made. But perhaps have just "Sawyer", or "James 'Sawyer' Ford" then.
Mar 1st, 2013 at 19:24 GMT
I agree, he's either James Ford, or just Sawyer. Sawyer isn't a first name, it's a last name.
Mar 1st, 2013 at 19:43 GMT
@thewildboo: Sawyer can be a first name just like Carter, Parker, Taylor and Tyler, which were all originally surnames. It's currently in the top 200 names for boys. As someone who doesn't watch Lost (or almost all of the shows on this quiz), I appreciate that it was listed as Sawyer.
Mar 1st, 2013 at 19:47 GMT
Apparently, i need to watch more shows on USA
Mar 1st, 2013 at 19:48 GMT
it depresses me that so little knew, Avatar: The Last Airbender:(
Mar 1st, 2013 at 19:59 GMT
I feel I need to point out that Starbuck wasn't female in the original Battlestar Galactica.
Mar 1st, 2013 at 20:14 GMT
James 'Sawyer' Ford fits fine so that's been changed. Thanks for the feedback.
Mar 1st, 2013 at 20:18 GMT
I'm going out on a limb here: I find Barney Stinson annoying as hell.
Mar 1st, 2013 at 20:38 GMT
I feel like Pam from True Blood fits more under the category of "The Girl You Don't Mess With"...she is a loyal companion, but she's more known for her attitude.
Mar 1st, 2013 at 20:40 GMT
I would have used Tara for the True Blood option in the loyal companion category
Mar 1st, 2013 at 20:43 GMT
I thought Joey Tribbiani was on the show "JOEY"
Mar 1st, 2013 at 22:04 GMT
Yes, but Tribbiani is listed under "Funny." That eliminates "Joey" right there.
Mar 1st, 2013 at 23:00 GMT
Great quiz! Thought an Office charater should've been included, US or UK. Dwight is quite the loyal companion!
Mar 2nd, 2013 at 00:38 GMT
Sarah Walker was also a character on Brothers and Sisters who fits the category.
Mar 2nd, 2013 at 00:40 GMT
More people need to watch Archer.
Mar 2nd, 2013 at 00:52 GMT
I did great on the USA shows and terrible on the HBO shows. Characters Welcome indeed!
Mar 2nd, 2013 at 02:25 GMT
Mike Ross was also one of the smartest cast members from the Real World.
Mar 2nd, 2013 at 03:00 GMT
I actually got Sarah Walker because of Dexter... anyone else?
Mar 2nd, 2013 at 03:39 GMT
Someone watches a lot of USA
Mar 2nd, 2013 at 14:04 GMT
I would argue that Sarah Walker could also be answered with "Brothers & Sisters" and even be included in the same category.
Mar 2nd, 2013 at 16:42 GMT
Some shows I've never heard of, and some I've never seen, might account for getting only 11 of these. Not watching much TV in recent years and living overseas could be another factor.
Mar 2nd, 2013 at 17:06 GMT
I counted - out of 36 TV shows listed, I have only ever watched 4 of these. Does that mean I have poor taste in TV programming?
Mar 2nd, 2013 at 17:27 GMT
I am not sure how Hiro is a leader of the pack but good quiz.
Mar 2nd, 2013 at 18:30 GMT
"Covert Affairs?" Never heard of it. For me, Annie Walker will always be the tough landlady of the Rovers Return in Coronation Street!
Mar 2nd, 2013 at 20:21 GMT
More people need to watch Archer!
Mar 3rd, 2013 at 04:40 GMT
@PS90 - That depends on 1) Which four of these shows you've watched, and 2) What you've been doing instead of watching the better ones on this quiz (because you could easily just be busy or apathetic rather than having bad taste).
Mar 4th, 2013 at 19:25 GMT
Clicks on the quiz:*Urgh, not going to know anyone here* Then sees Spencer Reid *OMG! I LOVE YOU, WHOEVER YOU ARE! I KNOW SOMEONE!* Though technically, he is a Dr. Anyways, good quiz, Loved the Doctor Who reference. Cannot believe that less than 25% of people go that one.
Mar 5th, 2013 at 01:12 GMT
Great show choices, nicely done!
Mar 5th, 2013 at 17:42 GMT
Mar 16th, 2013 at 18:09 GMT
A. Whoever made this quiz watches way too much USA B. Real World: Back to Las Vegas had a cast member named Mike Ross who as chance would have it was the smart one.
