@edgarblythe,
Pauley could get you cable and all it would cost is that sometime, in the future, God forbid it should happen, but Pauley would come to you and tell you he needed a little favor, not tha youd have to kill anybody (nervous laughter) and you would be honor bound to help him out. Until that day, as Pauley's friend, you would enjoy your cable tv free of any charge from the cable company (which Pauley had a small portion of ownership)

@farmerman,
Pauley Walnuts was evil, scary, and funny. All at the same time.

@farmerman,
I would watch Pauley Walnuts, given the opportunity. It might be too much red meat for broadcast TV. They often will rerun cable programming. Not likely this one.

@edgarblythe,
You can get DVDs of the Sopranos on Netflix. I strongly urge that you only watch the original and not the heavily "Christianized" version where they substitute the word "Freakin" for "Fuckin". Its so poor an attempt to potray these evil men by having them say "Aw Jeewiz Pauley , ya freakin idiot" (After which Pauley beats yer brains out with a garden spade.)

@edgarblythe,
Pauly Walnuts. A man for the ages.

Detective Frank Pembleton, Homicide: Life on the Street. Complex, smart, dedicated. Focused. The show fell apart when this character left.

@Roberta,
I think one of the best is Sandra Ho in Grey's Anatomy.

Haven't seen Six Feet Under, contrex. But Tony Soprano. Definitely someone to consider. Complex. Evil. Violent. And I sometimes found myself rooting for him. How did that happen?

Six Feet Under is one of the best shows ever to appear on any media. Great character study with a twisted sense of humor. Most complicated characters on television.

@edgarblythe,
EB?
Hawkeye - Alan Alda is a great character with principles no less!

Elaine Bennis - Julia Louis-Dreyfus: Admittedly she's my favorite character of the entire Seinfeld show. I had such a crush on her! Mr. Green

Det. Lennie Brisco, Law and Order. Of all the detectives, DAs, everything elses, this guy was real. This guy had depth. This guy said Noo Yawk to me. Just looked up Jerry Orbach's bio. He was born in the Bronx. I shoulda known.

Oogie Pringle (Our Miss Brooks) played by Richard Crenna (I think).

@Roberta,
I was listening to an "Old time" radio program that featured a Radio SHow Called Our Miss Brooks. Richard Crenna was on the radio show as this squeky voiced high school student named Walter Denton, not Oogie whjatever.

@farmerman,
You're absolutely right, FM. Oogie Pringle was from somewhere else. Our Miss Brooks has Walter Denton. Embarrassed Embarrassed

@Roberta,
On radio, Crenna played The Great Gildersleve's niece's love interest also. But I forgot his character name in it.
