POLL fav character

Postby TwinsPeak » Sun Feb 17, 2019 9:42 am

Was only allowed 20 names, I'm sure I left some favorites out. However this is the list I thought of. I had 21 names at 1st, I erased Donna. If your favorite is not on the list post it.....Everyone is allowed 2 votes. :)

This guy!

Nah, just kidding..

Aside from obvious favorites like Dale, Laura, the Log Lady, Sarah, Leland, BOB, Garland, Gordon; I find myself being most intrigued by the giant recently. Whatever character I'm most fond of is very prone to change. Past/other favorites are Albert, Sam Stanley, Jeffries, little Jimmy the lodge singer, Candie (!) and Senorita Dido.

Sad to see Evelyn Marsh and John Justice Wheeler are not included on your list.

Any "Favourite TP Character" list that omits Windom Earle is a DUD in my book! :D My pick is and always will be Cooper, of course, and frankly can't see why such a list is even necessary when your leading man is Dale Cooper, but I'd like to see Windom's name on there just the same.

P.S.: Don't take offence because of my remarks, please. I'm just having some fun.

All good, I actually asked people to post their favs even if not on the list.

I actually regret putting Cooper on the list, It probably would have been more interesting of a list had I left him out.

Garland, The Giant and Earle should be on the list....but who to leave out?

Hm, that's quite a tough one, since the list only allows up to twenty entries and TP has so many characters, more often than not so colorful they invoke strong reactions even when they're there only for a few minutes. Like, I'm practically convinced there's a person who'd choose as his favorite the guy who sells Bobby and Shelly that device for invalids :)

Seriously, though, if some of them have to go, I'd go with the importance factor as the eliminating criteria, namely, how (much) is a character important for the development of the series' central themes, for plights of main character(s), how does his inclusion propel the narrative forward (or not) etc. In this light, I nominate Andy, Lucy, and Nadine to be omitted and replaced with the three you mention.

I have to admit this is the hardest poll i have been faced with...
(this post is to narrow down to just two...)
I have six characters that i love... for different reasons.
Cole, Coop, Lucy, Dougie, Briggs, and Leland

(i mean technically Dougie is Coop via the return... but still, the personalities are completely different...)

Leland's story has inspired my first Piano Concerto. (which at first was kinda unintended until i was rewatching TP. And realized it kinda matched especially after he broke.)

My favourite part of the full series was when Cole and Shelly were kissing and Bobby comes in to the diner... But Cole's personality is the best, (when i first watched it, i failed to realize that he was Lynch till that episode... (i look at end credits when i find a character i really like or relate to. or am unsure of who it was... i didn't realize Maddy/Laura were the same actress... let alone Laura Dorn playing Diane...)

Briggs at first was probably low on my list. around the same time Bobby was low on the list... however, Briggs is probably the most mysterious of all the characters. (there is not much back story on him... he probably also was the template for Eugene's personality in The Walking Dead.)

Anyways...

Lucy is a sure option, because she reminds me a lot of my own personality. but it is the other four that are the tough decision.

so now we are left with for the second option; Leland, Dougie, Briggs, Cole, and Coop.

...and i cannot decide... so i will just vote for Lucy.
