    To my complete surprise, Fargo had the biggest amount of votes for a show so far, which I thought wouldn’t happen because it would seem like it was a dead heat between Freeman, BBT and Tolman.

    Now we’re going classic. I added some of the more memorable recurring guest stars to the list other than the main four.

    This is like asking which children do you love the most. They are all such exceptional performers and the characters have become legendary. While I love everyone on this list, I must go with Kramer, simply because he’s Kramer!

    Errrgh! I missed the Fargo poll. I’m like obviously its biggest supporter around here.

    This one’s also really difficult, but I went with JDL just because of the thumbs and the kicks, which is my favorite bit from Seinfeld.

    Can I suggest TWIN PEAKS???? Like, some of the youngin’ might be too young for this show but I’m not! and I’m 22. Please and thank you. lol

    ^ Ooh, yes. Although, apparently, we have more fans of LA Law around here, which I actually found more surprising. 

    This is a heck of a choice, but I’m going to go with Jason Alexander. Dreyfus probably had a bit more variety in her performance, but George is really the figure that I associate with the show. Such a great character.

    Jason Alexander. George Costanza is a top 10 TV character for me.

    Let’s see if this poll ends up being close. I went with Jason Alexander. George Costanza — classic character, all time great. His storyline working for the Yankees is enough to get my vote.

    They’re all great (even Seinfeld, in his own overacting way), but I’m going Alexander all the way. Quite possibly the greatest purely comedic performance in television history. He WAS George Costanza.

    You should do Scrubs next! Zach Braff, Donald Faison, Sarah Chalke, John McGinley, Judy Reyes, Christa Miller, Ken Jenkins, Neil Flynn, any one of them could get my vote depending on which episode i just watched

    Though the concepts and execution were often inspired I was never a fan of Seinfeld’s characterization. Jason and Julia are the best by some distance. Jerry was a borderline horrible actor on the series, and he didn’t improve throughout the seasons. I never thought Kramer was funny. George became reprehensible in the final few seasons, but the writing for that character and Jason’s performance was the most consistent in the first two-thirds of the series, so that’s who I’m going with. Slightly surprised he’s leading the poll considering the amount of JLD fan(boys) there are.

    You could also do Frasier, but David Hyde Pierce seems like he would be the easy winner.

    As for this poll, it’s George. He is the best part about Seinfeld, hands down.

    I’m thinking Rebecca would win the Cheers poll, though I’d still like to see the outcome. 

    Some cast polls that may actually be tight are: Friday Night Lights, Six Feet Under, Mad Men, The Golden Girls, Friends, The Wire.
