25. Jesse Pinkman
He started his journey as a smart junkie who says "bitch" a lot, but just look at where he is now. All right, things are pretty much the same, but we sure do like him more.
24. Mal Reynolds
Nathan Fillion never really made it to the big time, which is sad, because he's great. Still, also it's kind of good, because now Mal Reynolds can forever be his defining role, even if six people have ever actually seen it.
23. Jean-Luc Picard
Let this be the end of the Kirk vs. Picard debate. Not because it's a tedious, endless exercise in arbitrary assignments of fictional worth and subjective reaction, but because come on, it's obviously Picard.
22. Abed Nadir
Abed's grown to become so much more than "That Weird Kid on Community. No, the other one, no the OTHER other one. Right," and that's why we love him. That and that bit where he pretends to be Don Draper. That was awesome.
21. Kermit the Frog
Kermit's deserving of a place on this list not only for his countless, faultless contributions to TV and film, but for also making the banjo somewhat tolerable.
