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).

Neal on White Collar, because, come on, who doesn't love a con man?

My favorite USA character is Hank Lawson of Royal Pains. I love how he deals with the rich Hamptons 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!

I have been obsessed with con men since Sawyer in Lost, so my vote has to go for Neal's hotness in White Collar! Yummy!!!!

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. :)

Harvey on Suits - he brings the witty lawyer banter :)

Martin said...

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!
