the neighbors

I remember summer days as a kid leaving the house in the morning and coming back when I heard my name being called for dinner time. I think a big part of someone's life is the neighborhood friends you grow up with. So because it so accurately portrays reality, let's give it up for some of the TV neighbors of my generation...


"The Wacky Best Friend Who Inevitably Instigates Disasters"
Kimmy Gibbler from Full House and Cody Lambert from Step By Step... So annoying yet in the end so unwaveringly loyal to the son or daughter in the protagonist's family.



"The Hot Unattainable Girl Who Gets Attained"
Jen Lindley from Dawson's Creek and Marisa Cooper from the O.C... A lot of long lonely nights are spent by the main male character longing for her mysterious ways.



"The Nerd Whose Love Is Perpetually Unrequited"
Brian Krakow from My So-Called Life and Steve Urkel from Family Matters... Whether they are the quiet tortured soul or the bane of your existence, they were head over heels for the sweet ingenue of the house.



"The Old Guy Who Happens To Be Outside Or In Your Hallway At the Exact Moment You Need Advice"
Mr. Feeny from Boy Meets World and Mike the RA from SBTB: The College Years... They prune their bushes or walk by your dorm room at that perfect time you're in the midst of a conflict in which you need the thoughts of the sage dude in your life.



Honorable Mention in Fine Literature: The Baby-Sitter's Club
Kristy, Mary Anne, and Claudia... The eternal 13-year-old 8th grade BFF's who started a phenomenon.

So true! Wilson from Home Improvement is in the Mr. Feeny category, too!

I used to have awesome neighbors, too. :( They got kicked out by their jerky landlord! Where is the sitcom episode for THAT to help me?
