TV characters that I wish were real so that I could hang out with them

Steven Hyde (from “That 70s Show”) so that we could sit in the basement, watch TV, and kick back with some beers. He could also introduce me to the latest rock albums through his job at the record store.

Nick Andopolis (from “Freaks and Geeks”) so that I had someone to talk endlessly with about Led Zeppelin and John Bonham.

Karen Arnold (from “The Wonder Years”) so I had a free-spirited girlfriend to sing songs, braid each other’s hair, and recite poetry with.
