“It’s Like God Spilled A Person”: TV Characters Who Are Just A Mess

Some characters on TV drew the short straw in life, we love them but we can’t avoid the fact that when the writers cooked up the character they were thinking of the most unfortunate people they know from high school orchildhood.It can’t be helped some characters just seem to face bad luck everywhere they go. You look at them and you say “How the hell did this person happen” but again we love them anyway.

1. Ben Chang Community played by Ken Jeong : He’s not only insane but also he has nothing going his way. He’s homeless, friendless and obnoxious.He follows the study group around like a lost puppy (an ugly puppy) and gets constantly rejected. He should have a disease named after him.

2.George Costanza Seinfeld played by Jason Alexander : He is a mesh mash of horrible, he was unemployed for a long time, he is cheap and falls short in every aspect .No one wants to be George and if you are a George get a personality altering surgery or something I don’t care how … change it now !

3.Morgan Grimes Chuck played by Joshua Gomez: He might be a spy now but there is no denying that Grimes is a loser, he might not be as horrible as others on the list but he has his fair share of bad composition with a hint of dorkiness.

4. Andy Dwyer Parks and Recreation played by Chris Pratt: he is the epitome of underachiever, though he is a fun guy to be honest he is an embarrassment, he’s not the guy you take home to meet your parents.Luckily he found someone to share his insanity and life.He works as a shoe shining man in a government building (good right! wait for it ) after being homeless and living in a pit outside his ex-girlfriend’s house where he before fell and broke his 2  legs . One word for this character…Stray

5. Liz Lemon 30 rock played by Tine fey : If you watch the NBC hit show you will not need me to explain,but I’ll do it anyway. Liz is the producer of a TV show in NBC (good for her right?! wrong) that is the only aspect liz manages to pull off. She is messy and disorganized, her personal and social life is a disaster, her dating history reads as the “who is who of trashy leeches” .

7. Phil Dunphy Modern Family played by Ty Burrelle : this suburban family man is as dorky as they come.He rarely does anything right and always manages to get into trouble for our comic amusement. He’s a great dad and husband but never to take out in public.

So here you have it, as I was watching a character in my life unfold as a total mess, I list this for your summer pleasure to remember that not all are lucky,smart,beautiful,graceful or eloquent but all are loved.

Note: the quote listed above in the title is from NBC’s Community.
