We talked about the TV characters that give midlifers a bad name, but what those we love? Here are a few of our favorite television characters that represent midlife in a positive way.
If Walter White was one of the TV characters who gave midlifers a bad name, his brother-in-law Hank is surely the opposite. Hank (played by Dean Norris) is a DEA agent investigating the source of all that blue meth that hit the streets since Walter decided to, well, break bad. The only trouble is that Hank doesn't know it's his brother-in-law is behind the whole operation.
You'd think that would make Hank look stupid, but instead, he's been the only one in his office that has consistently thought about the case. He's been shot and severely wounded but nothing has kept him down. Now? He's helping to raise Walter's son and infant daughter. Turns out running a drug ring has caused problems in Water and Skyler's marriage.
In the meantime, we look forward to Daddy Hank just as much as the day when he finally finds out who the real-life Heisenberg is.
