    Who would you choose as the best TV characters of the 1990’s?

    Make your selections and send them to me in a Private Message (PM) by the end of Friday, March 22.

    We will then announce the Top 20 sometime the following week.

    This is the sequel to our very popular version from the 2000s that was created this past fall. 


    HERE ARE THE RULES…

    Any
    TV characters from ongoing series (not movies or one-time-only
    miniseries) are eligible from the 1990’s. However, when we do this for
    other decades, no character will be allowed to appear on a list more
    than once. For those that cross decades, that means you must decide the appropriate one
    where they had the most impact.
    ————————————————————-

    Give points to your top 20 choices as follows:
    100 to your top choice
    95 to your second choice
    90 to your third choice
    continuing down to 5 to your twentieth choice
    ————————————————————–

    Send the list to me in a Private Message (PM) in the following format:
    ## Points — Name of Character (Name of Actor/Actress) — Name of Show
    —————————————————————

    You must send 20 choices in the format listed above or risk your ballot being thrown out.
    —————————————————————-

    You
    can campaign for no more than five of your favorites in this thread. DO
    NOT list your full ballot or more than five names here. Be sure to
    campaign for names you think others might overlook.

    Very much looking forward to seeing your selections and the final results!!

    George Costanza (played by Jason Alexander) in Seinfeld has to be NUMBER ONE, if not at least in the TOP THREE

    Jason Alexander did not win a single Emmy Award for his portrayal of George Costanza for the whole nine years of Seinfeld. I think he should keep this in mind when choosing the nominees. We should honor Alexander by giving him the NUMBER ONE spot

    Okay, I hope I get a response because It’s been a major chore trying to send my ballot in. Anytime I attempted to send this PM to Boomer I got a message saying “Invalid User”, and so I finally had to go into my messages and try sending it by clicking “New Message”, it says it sent, but I don’t know… Boomer, can you confirm that I sent this?

    Now for some FYC’s:

    —Jesse McKenna, played by Chad Lowe on Life Goes On
    Whitley Gilbert, played by Jasmine Guy on A Different World
    —–Felicity Porter, played by Kerri Russel on Felicity
    and lastly, Phoebe Buffay, played by Lisa Kudrow on Friends
