Top 20 Television Characters of the Past 10 Years

#10 and a half) Omar Little (Portrayed by Michael K. Williams):

So, I'll be the first to admit that I totally fucked up. Epic internet fail on my part. With the listing of the characters and moving all of the order and numbers around, I realized that I had miscounted and got one ahead of myself in the numbers game. So, good news for all, this is now a list of the best 21 characters. Boo Ya!!! One more for your reading pleasure. Anyways: Omar is the fucking man. A lot of people say The Wire is the greatest, most realistic show to ever grace the screen of our tellys. I wouldn't go that far, but the show is great, and it wouldn't be nearly as great without this gay, badass black man. He pulls some epic stick-ups, jumps off buildings, seemingly vanishes into thin air, and avenges the death of his boyfriend: all while wielding a sawed-off shotgun and a trenchcoat. How sick is that shit? Again, sorry about the mix-up in the order, but as Omar would say: "It's all in the game though, right?"
