So who are these crazy kooks that I love so much?
Dr. Walter Bishop, Fringe
Say what you want about the show Fringe (Fringe: The Complete First Season) and I can say plenty, Walter Bishop is one of the best reasons to watch it. He doesn't begin to think in the same wavelength as the people around him. Yes, he spent 17 years in St. Claire's Mental Hospital and has even had portions of his brain excised, but he delights in exploring the limits of science and beyond – and he keeps a cow in his laboratory so he can have fresh milk.
Dr. Gregory House, House
What can you say about House except that when he committed himself at the end of last season because he was actually hallucinating everything from sex with Cuddy to seeing a dead Kutner and a dead Amber that the man would get even more wildly interesting as he battled his addictions and fought for his sanity? Did it make him a nice guy or even begin to excuse his behavior? Absolutely not and would we want it too?
Are we seeing a trend here? Is it the medical profession? Well in the case of this Timelord, I don't think it's so much a profession as it is the fact that he's 900 years old and literally, he's seen it all. So he gets the craziest ideas, the zaniest responses and the wackiest villains.
Who are your favorite crazies?
