5. Agents Fitz and Simmons (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.). These two are beyond smart, but also have the right balance of common sense to add to that amazing scientific knowledge. So far, there hasn’t been anything they can’t figure out, which is amazing considering that Fitz has been struggling with oxygen deprivation brain damage for the past season. Of course, they also have that outstanding Marvel technology to work with.
4. Team Arrow (Arrow). Diggle is awesome and, I believe, underutilized in this TV show, because he’s capable of so much more, and I’d really like to see him break out the kick a** next season. I was disappointed to see Roy go into hiding, and do hope that Felicity will finally settle down now that she “got the guy” in the season finale, because she was getting annoying despite her mad computer skills last season. But they are a great team and, despite their flaws, they are the force behind Oliver Queen that doesn’t fail Star City.
3. Cisco and Caitlyn (The Flash). They’re super smart, clever beyond belief, and are the kind of friends that everybody wants. Cisco and Caitlyn break the stereotypes of engineers and doctors with their loyalty and amazing personalities. Barry Allen definitely couldn’t do anything without these super smart, super loyal friends in his corner!
2. Bobby Singer (Supernatural). I can’t tell you how disappointed I am that the igits killed him off, because he was the best, funniest character perhaps anywhere. Who didn’t love Bobby? He was not only a great demon hunter, but remarkably clever at working the system to get what he needed to track down the demons and bring them to their rightful end. I still laugh when I remember that scene of him cooking at the stove and impersonating an FBI agent for Sam and Dean.
1. Tyrion Lannister (Game of Thrones). This is a guy that knows how to turn all things to good! He’s clever, he’s cunning, and he has the guts to do what must be done because he has nothing to lose. Tyrion went from Hand of the King, to sentenced to death, to being sold into slavery, to running Mereen. Even on the run, he kept his head and kept his wits about him, because he was patient enough to see how things were working and to work them for his benefit. Don’t underestimate this dwarf. Truth be told, he’s likely the most powerful person in Westeros. Denarys Targarian would do well to make the most of this alliance, as he can probably get her (or anybody else) on the Iron Throne. Plus, he has some great dialogue both in the books and the TV series.
That’s all today. Here’s hoping for some good reveals from ComicCon this weekend and into next week. Take care, and have a happy Friday and a great weekend.
