All we want is a web series of Bob Loblaw’s Law Blog.

Barney Stinson — How I Met Your Mother

Be honest, what did you like watching more: Ted go on date after date, or Barney do literally anything at all? Barney was charismatic, funny, and had way more growth as a character.

Spin-off we want to see: A sequel series called Haaaaaaaaaaave You Met Barney?

CBS

Jean-Ralphio — Parks and Recreation

Jean-Ralphio — Parks and Recreation

Jean-Ralphio is the most eccentric and clueless person you’ve ever wanted to be your best friend.

If Jon Snow knows nothing, Tormund knows EVERYTHING. After watching him lead the Wildlings for two seasons, who would be better on the Iron Throne? No one.

Spin-off we want to see: A sitcom with him and Brienne called Big People, Big Wall.

Sookie St. James — Gilmore Girls

Sookie St. James — Gilmore Girls

Sookie was funny, caring, and emotionally available, and she gave us our first taste of that Melissa McCarthy charisma.

The CW / Netflix

Elijah Krantz — Girls

Elijah Krantz — Girls

Elijah is as big of a trainwreck as everyone else in the series, but at least he had great quips!

Spin-off we want to see: Honestly, we’d be happy just seeing the staged production of “White Men Can’t Jump” that Elijah books at the end of Girls.

HBO

Winston Schmidt — New Girl

Winston Schmidt — New Girl

Schmidt is that cocky, good-looking guy you can’t help but fall in love with. He is outlandish, absurd, and makes you forget that he’s actually not the lead of this series.

Spin-off we want to see: Who Gives A Schmidt? and the answer is everyone. Everyone gives a Schmidt.

Fox

Mike Ehrmantraut — Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul

Mike Ehrmantraut — Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul

Bob Loblaw — Arrested Development

Bob Loblaw — Arrested Development
