Celebrating Characters; A USA Network Giveaway!!

Well-developed, believable characters are key to any good story, whether in a novel or a TV show. After all, if viewers can't sympathize with a character and believe in their story, why would they read the book? Or tune in to a TV show?

The USA Network has long prided themselves on interesting and often fun characters. To celebrate the end of the summer season, they're offering up a bag of goodies (valued at $590!!)

(For a list of the USA Network shows wrapping up their seasons over the next month, click here).

USA Summer Essentials Bag 2011 contents:
* Zipbuds with Custom USA Pull
* Powerstick w/2G Memory
* Edith A. Miller Nautical Shirt for Women

So how do you enter you ask? One, you have to have a U.S. mailing address. And second, tell me who is your favorite USA Network character and why in the comments below. (S/he doesn't have to be the lead. Because come on, Auggie on Covert Affairs is really awesome, and not just because he has mad tech skills. He's sweet, loyal, and an all-around good guy).

Good luck!

My favorite USA character is Hank Lawson of Royal Pains. I love how he deals with the rich Hamptons snobs...plus am just a little jealous because I've always wanted to go there!

I like Dani on Necessary Roughness because I love her job.

Sam Axe...because I am obsessed with Bruce Campbell. The man can do no wrong. Sam is the perfect character for BC to play!

Neal in White Collar, he's just so yummy! And a con man with a concience is a good thing for him, otherwise I think he'd just be smarmy. :)

Shoot, did I miss it? Linnea might be mad! Haha!

Well, seeing as we watch White Collar here, I suppose I too will go with Neil.

Evan R. Lawson, CFO of Hank Med. He has some of the best lines in the show and I love him with Paige!
