Top 20 Television Characters of the Past 10 Years

#15) David Fisher (Portrayed by Michael C. Hall):

For anyone who watches Dexter and hasn't seen Michael C. Hall's work in Six Feet Under, put the first season in your Netflix queue right this moment; better yet, buy the whole Six Feet Under box set if you want to see one of the most powerful/emotional shows in the history of HBO, or even television. David Fisher is the gay co-owner of Fisher & Sons (and Diaz) in a show that revolves around the business of a funeral home and the paths of the characters invested financially, physically and emotionally in the family-owned business. This character couldn't be much different than Dexter, and watching Hall's range is a wonder to behold. The scenes between David and his brother Nate (who we will see on this list at a later date) are some of the best between brothers on T.V. Also, on a little side note, at the beginning of every Six Feet Under episode, somebody dies, sometimes in amazing and creative ways. Fisher and Sons business is Death, and business was damn good from 2001-2005.
