Top 20 Television Characters of the Past 10 Years

#14) Jesse Pinkman (Portrayed by Aaron Paul):

For those who haven't seen Breaking Bad, the show deals with a high school chemistry teacher (Walter White) who gets diagnosed with terminal lung cancer and decides to start cooking meth to save up a bunch of money for his family when he dies. Jesse Pinkman is a former student of Walter's, and is heavily involved in the local drug trade. Their combo is one of the best in television right now, and all of their interactions are absolutely priceless. Jesse handles the "street" (selling) part of their drug operation, although sometimes (i.e. almost always) Jesse royally fucks up something important and Walt has to come to the rescue. This is the best show on television right now, and I can't wait to see what antics these characters get into when Season 3 starts at the end of March. My guess is that they will get into some precarious situations in which they better call Saul.
