Dads are pretty great, right? (Right.) Your dad is probably the coolest person you know! TV dads are a totally different deal, though. They run the gamut from the platonic ideal to the complete nightmare. In honor of Father's Day, SideReel's taking a moment to honor iconic TV dads, from the sublime (Uncle Phil) to the terrifying (Tony Soprano). Check out our list and then thank your lucky stars Tobias Fünke wasn't your role model. King of the Hill : Hank Hill King of the Hill was probably the most naturalistic cartoon ever to grace the screen, and Hank Hill was its standard-bearer. As head of the household, he strove to be unambiguously normal, despite Bobby and Peggy's needs to stand out. His own father, Cotton, was everything he couldn't stand (profane, misogynistic, racist, and... well... shinless), and so, though he never quite understood Bobby, he always, always supported him—except when it came to Dog Dancing . That was every man for himself. Friday Night Lights : Eric Taylor As James Poniewozik, Time 's television critic, once wrote , Kyle Chandler's portrayal of Coach Eric Taylor was "the How to Be a God Damn Man seminar." And really, it was. Though understated, Coach is fiercely loyal to his family (yes, even awful Julie), and also serves as a surrogate father to what seems like half of the football players in Dillon. He handles every obstacle with aplomb, and has already taken his place among the pantheon of perfect TV dads. Arrested Development : Tobias Fünke And then there's Tobias Fünke. Both flamboyant and repressed, his self-absorbed whims are a perfect fit for the bizarre antics of his in-laws. He veers between forgetting he has a daughter and yearning for her respect—and in trying to achieve it uses means so totally repulsive, he only manages to drive her further away. Luckily for Maeby, raising oneself is probably better than being raised by a Never-Nude. The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air : Uncle Phil There is a generation out there (and I know it, because it's mine) that wanted nothing more than to be Will Smith in The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air —and it had nothing to do with being able to perform the theme song. No, it was all thanks to Uncle Phil, the only real father-figure Will ever had, and the man who comforted him when he was rejected by his biological father. Tough yet fair, Uncle Phil knew when to indulge his family and when to tighten the reins, and, judging by the reactions to actor James Avery's death, Phil was inspirational in his approach to parenting. Seinfeld : Morty Seinfeld Come on, the man owns a shirt that says "Number 1 Dad." So much of the time when talking about fathers on Seinfeld , we focus on Frank Costanza, but Barney Martin's Morty Seinfeld was a terrific addition to the ensemble in his own right. As vain and spite-driven as his son, he had dreams of political dominance (in the rarefied world of Miami old-person condo associations) and saw such a strong legacy in his invention of the beltless trenchcoat ("The Executive") that he derailed a chartered trip to Paris. Besides, his devotion to the Early Bird special rivals that of his devotion to his son, so we'd be remiss if we didn't mention him. The Cosby Show : Cliff Huxtable Cliff Huxtable was probably the defining TV dad (and pudding pitchman) of the 1980s. His perfect, sweetly funny, be-sweatered family was the envy of America, and, per TV Guide , "single-handedly revived the sitcom genre." In the days of very-special-episode comedy, Cliff Huxtable was king of his fictional castle, and Bill Cosby was the king of the medium. The Sopranos : Tony Soprano Premiering at the very tail-end of the '90s (seriously, it premiered January '99), The Sopranos launched the anti-hero-driven dramas of the 2000s, and Tony Soprano, effortlessly played by James Gandolfini, was the anti-hero of our time. Patriarch of the Sopranos and the DiMeo organization, Tony's life in both was complicated enough to spawn the brilliant first season tagline "If one family doesn't kill him, the other will." Fringe : Walter Bishop Dr. Walter Bishop: actual genius, criminal genius, lover of hallucinogens, and father to two universes' worth of Peter Bishop. This is a man who crossed dimensional barriers to rescue his double's dying boy in order to save himself from despair. This act of fatherly love would be the catalyst for gruesome trans-universal crimes against humanity, a dimensional war, and a pretty damn bleak future, but he never regrets saving his son. Besides, all that LSD he ingested probably took the sting out of it. Leah E. Friedman is the editor of SideReel.com. Her dad taught her everything she knows. You can follow her musings on Twitter .
To paraphrase Homer Simpson, moms: the cause of, and solution to all of life's problems. Or at least, the cause of and solution to most of television's problems. It was tough to narrow this list of TV's iconic moms to just eight—we suspect that both Sofia Petrillo and Carmela Soprano have it out for us now—but we took our best stab at it, though, OK, we kind of slipped in a ninth. Let us know your thoughts in the comments! Game of Thrones : Cersei Lannister/Daenerys Targaryen One is the mother of dragons and the other is the mother of a monster, and they're two of Game of Thrones ' most notorious power players. By turns ruthless and loving, Cersei and Daenerys will do anything to ensure their legacies—including using their children to do their bidding. Arrested Development : Lucille Bluth Speaking of power players, Lucille, matriarch of the dysfunctional Bluth clan, turned out to be the real brains behind the "lightly treasonous" business deals that shaped the AD storyline in seasons one through three—only to be stuck under house arrest come season four. How I Met Your Mother : Tracy (The Mother) Tracy, the titular-yet-oft-unseen mother, is the reason we got to spend nine years with the HIMYM crew, even though we only got to spend one year (or is it more like one weekend?) with her. She may not have been integral to the story in the end, but as the catalyst of the long-running sitcom, she gets to take her place among the iconic TV moms of the new millennium. Seinfeld : Estelle Costanza For decades, television tended to idealize mothers. Thankfully, '90s tended towards cynicism—in large part due to the success of Seinfeld —and brought us the wonder that was Estelle Costanza. Shrill, nuts, adoring, and petty, she was every bit the equal to her husband, Frank, and a big part of what made George so, well... George. Friday Night Lights : Tami Taylor Not that there's anything wrong with idealized moms—and Tami is living proof. She's loving, dedicated, ambitious, brilliant and a perfect partner to husband Eric ("Coach") Taylor. She's so great, she managed to make a career jump from guidance counselor to principal after just two years at Dillon High! Coach might get cast aside, but Tami is irreplaceable (except maybe to daughter Julie, but eventually, she'll learn). Mad Men : Betty Draper/Francis Pity Betty. She's had a poor little rich girl existence since the start of Mad Men , what with Don constantly cheating on her, her kids not loving her (not that she's been any great help on that front), and getting remarried to a guy she's not entirely sure is on her side. As Tolstoy said, "Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." At least when it comes to Betty, that unhappiness makes for a mesmerizing character. Roseanne : Roseanne Conner Roseanne Conner might just have been the anti-Betty. She was working class, and caught zero breaks, but she was a bedrock for her family. Her husband adored her, her kids respected her, and before things went all wacky in the final season, she was one of the (very) few everywomen on TV, with a family we didn't admire so much as relate to. Parenthood : Kristina Braverman Kristina is the closest thing we have on this earth to an angel. She's even got a halo of white-blonde hair to prove it. She's the sounding board for her (extremely large and complicated) family, she has the patience of a saint (yes, the metaphors just got mixed; deal with it), and it's pretty impossible not to love her. You'll cry with her, laugh with her, hurt with her and generally just want to be her. Given that she's perfect, she's the only acceptable way to end this list. Leah E.
