60 Favorite Television Characters: 30

All of the Mike Schur-era comedies on television have had a breakthrough character that becomes almost as iconic as the show, at least in more of the mainstream culture. On The Office, it was Dwight Schrute. On Brooklyn Nine-Nine, it was Raymond Holt. And on Parks and Recreation, there is no doubting that it was Ron Swanson. The stoic, individualistic, hardened government employee who never wanted to work for the government served as the facilitator for much of the show's humor and a lot of the more tender moments, too, because he was such a father figure that people always saw him as one who could be approached for advice. I'd take advice from him, too.

  1. I love that they just didn't make him grumpy and one-note. He shows he has heart, and cares about those that do worm their way into his heart.
