60 Favorite Television Characters: 60
And to begin this list, we look to a very recently created character. So recent that the show actually first debuted in 2013 and it is only in its third season currently! But that's okay because this guy is deserving. I know a lot of the love from fans for characters on Brooklyn Nine-Nine might go to some of the more outwardly funny characters like Gina or Terry, but when I think of this I am reminded of the great thought B.J. Novak once had. That main characters are often times underrated. And this applies to Jake Peralta, the lead on Brooklyn Nine-Nine. He is smart, intuitive, endearingly awkward, and just so fun to watch. You just can't help but root for the guy. And Andy Samberg plays him to perfection, emphasizing all of his strengths as an actor.
