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.
Oh sure, Walter Bishop (played by John Noble) is mentally unbalanced, but it's not his fault. He had William Bell remove part of his brain. It was all in the name of science! And saving the earth. Because Walter was trying to save Peter and wouldn't the average father do whatever they needed to in order to keep their son alive? Even if it meant taking his doppelganger from the other side?
Fringe has been a fun ride for fans, but watching Walter makes you have a whole new appreciation for midlife. Walter faces his fears boldly, and yet maintains his charm and loveable personality. What, you don't find strawberry milkshakes and red licorice charming?
