Just because a TV character may not represent midlifers in a positive way doesn't mean they aren't still fun to watch. Here are some favorite midlife characters from television we glad we're nothing like.
On one hand, Clay (played by Ron Pearlman) and Gemma (played by Katey Sagal) from FX's Sons of Anarchy have a strong bond and marriage. On the other hand, Clay killed Gemma's first husband John. On one hand, they are devoted to each other. On the other, Clay regularly has flings while on the road, including one that followed him back to town. Gemma let her know she wasn't welcome by smashing her face in with a skateboard.
These midlife characters have put a lot of life into their years. Are they content? Happy? We sure hope not, because it's much more fun to watch when they aren't.
