WB Week: Top 10 Favorite WB Characters, Part 1 - Featured

Dawson's Creek - Pacey Witter

Dawson's Creek will always have a special place in my heart and the hearts of plenty of others (mainly girls perhaps?) who struggled through high school relationships, awkwardness, and everything else with the kids of the creek. But while the show started out Dawson-focused, the interest in Dawson lasted a little while, but though I personally had a hard time letting go of the Dawson-Joey soul mate wishes, I (and many other Creek fans) quickly fell for Pacey's truly humble and sweet ways. Pacey turned out to be the unexpected hero for Joey (and viewers) who swept us away with that darling smile and that true heart of gold that still wins me over on any repeat I catch, despite that ridiculous 90's haircut!


Gilmore Girls - Rory Gilmore and Jess Mariano

The greatest parts of Gilmore Girls were the great bond between Lorelai and Rory, plus watching Rory grow up as she learned some tough lessons in life and love. Yes, cliche, but with Rory as the most strikingly intelligent romantic on TV, she was a very difficult character not to love. And so hand in hand with this favorite character mention comes that character ever so difficult for Rory not to love: Jess Mariano. Jess was the ultimate soft-hearted bad boy who swept into Rory's sleepy town and his character was very endearing yet heartbreaking which is exactly what every teenage girl watching wanted - come on now, Dean was cute and sweet, but didn't Jess thrill you with his sweet yet confusing writer-bad-boy emotions?


Felicity - Javier Clemente Quintata

Enough sappiness over the WB guys I crushed on far too much - now Felicity was a bit of a concerning crusher herself, but who kept her head above water all those college years of utter romantic and life confusion? Why her insanely adorable Dean & Deluca boss, Javier! Javier was the perfect more mature shoulder for all the cast to lean on as his need to tear up at any important moment in the lives of those like Felicity and Ben really gave an extra layer of warmth and flavor to the series.


The O.C. - Seth Cohen

While Ryan Atwood may have been the cool bad boy coming into town on this WB fav, it was geeky foster brother Seth Cohen that left the most impact on many an O.C. lovin' heart! Seth was geeky and awkward, but secretly we all knew he was a very well-adjusted kid with an amazing family who just needed to escape the trendy OC kids to get himself to the perfect college already. Seth wasn't just hilarious in his awkwardness, but incredibly adorable as we learned he was totally in love with the gorgeous and unreachable (not for long!) Summer Roberts. Those endearing qualities along with Seth's quirky wit made him one of the greatest WB characters we've known!


Veronica Mars - Veronica Mars

While there are many characters to love on Veronica Mars, Veronica deserves to be on this list as it was her snarky detective self who really captured our love for this show! I missed out on VM while it was on the air, and am just now catching up on SideReel, so now through 2 of the 3 seasons, I've found Veronica to be one of the most solid and real female characters (okay, so real teens don't do detective work in their spare time, but personality-wise), of the WB and TV in general. Who knew one girl could save the world, show us it's okay to be a mess and have no friends, yet show us to love those real friends and family like no other!

The O.C. definitely has that whole teen angst thing going that the WB was kind of built on but I could have sworn it was a Fox show.

jacksparr - OC was on FOX when it aired so feel free to swear on it. ;) But it was produced by WB, and is now featured on thewb.com, so we thought we'd bundle it in with the WB produced that did air on the WB as well!

The WB had soooo many great shows! Veronica Mars will forever be my favourite female character of all time. She was a fighter who always seemed to have a glimmer in her eye, even through the tougher times. Every episode I would laugh aloud over one of her quirky one liners. There was never, nor has there been since, a female lead who was so relatable and gripping to watch as her for me. And I have to say, if it wasn't for Kristen Bell's perfect portrayal, she would definitely not be the fantastic character she became.

Buffy-Anya, Giles, Spike, AndrewAnd Cordelia when she went to Angel. I agree with the rest of the list and I pretty much love all the shows on the WB so my picks would be very long!
