Which TV Characters Were Better Than Their Shows?

Let's be real, Michonne deserved better than The Walking Dead.

Like me, I'm sure everyone has a list of their favorite TV characters that star on their all-time favorite shows.


But have you ever loved a TV character who was trapped on a show you ended up not caring about?

I can't be the only one who stops watching a show but still checks up on their favorite character?!

Maybe you absolutely loved Lexa from The 100 and thought she was a total badass, but the show treated her poorly and she 100% deserved better.

Perhaps Caleb Rivers will forever be one of your favorite TV boyfriends, but he did not deserve to be stuck on Pretty Little Liars.


Maybe Hook from Once Upon a Time had one of your favorite character arcs on TV, but the show went downhill fast and you ended up not liking it overall.


Heck, perhaps you think Cristina Yang's TV legacy will definitely outlast Grey's Anatomy's because Sandra Oh was always the best part of the show.

So tell us which TV characters were actually better than the shows they were on and WHY in the comments below, and you could be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post or video!
