TV

Stuart Larkin

Stuart Douglas Larkin is a creepy, overgrown little boy played by MAD TV’s Michael McDonald. He has frequent temper tantrums, which can cross over into his “dark place” on occasion.

John Watson

Sherlock Holmes’s flatmate and blogger seems harmless enough when you first meet him, but don’t let the frumpy exterior and questionable taste in sweaters fool you. Underneath the plaid and knits is a sharp-eyed ex-soldier and adrenaline junkie who loves the chase almost as much as his partner-in-crime-solving does.

Mycroft Holmes

Mycroft, Sherlock’s older and possibly smarter brother, prefers observation to action. He humbly insists he occupies but a minor role in Her Majesty’s government (if by ‘minor,’ you mean ‘occasionally IS Her Majesty’s government’), however, he gets tetchy when asked how his diet’s going (it’s going fine, thank you).

Octomom

Nadya Suleman, better known as Octomom, made headlines when she gave birth to octuplets in January 2009. What may not be known is that she already had six older children at the time. You got to hand it to her though, between juggling her time as a mother and as an adult entertainer, she somehow still manages to squeeze in her collagen injections.

Snooki

Nicole Elizabeth Polizzi, better known as Snooki, made her mark on reality TV with the MTV show Jersey Shore. From getting smashed (and smashed in the face), she has since expanded her talents to designing cosmetics, writing a book, and motivational speaking.

George Bluth Sr.

George Bluth Sr. is the founder of the Bluth Company and the patriarch of the Bluth family. He spends much of his time on the series, Arrested Development, either incarcerated or on the run. While doing time, he’s befriended fellow inmates, led baseball games, and has had spiritual epiphanies. You could say that he was doing “the time of his life.”

T-Bone

T-Bone is George Bluth’s cellmate. When he’s released from prison, George hires him to do some side work on the outside, like manning the banana stand, among other jobs. As they say, there’s always money in the banana stand.

Sherlock Holmes (Elementary)

The American response to Sherlock, Elementary’s Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) is more into T-shirts and tattoos than Savile Row suits. But despite his troubled history with drug abuse and a move to New York, this Holmes still retains all of the wit and brilliance of his counterpart from across the pond.

Joan Watson

Elementary’s Watson may be a Joan instead of a John and traded in a soldier’s firearm for a sober companion’s exasperated patience, but don’t underestimate her. She not only keeps up with the deductive skill of Sherlock Holmes, she does it all while running around New York in two-inch heels.

Marcus Bell

Named for Dr. Joseph Bell, the inspiration behind the original Sherlock Holmes, Marcus Bell is one of the best and brightest of the NYPD, earning the respect of a certain consulting detective. Plus, he can do the one thing Elementary’s Holmes appears incapable of doing: dress like an adult.
