Everyone loves their favorite TV characters. You get to know their personalities, what they like, catchphrases. Once you get attached to them it’s easy to imagine how they’d fit in the context of real life. For example, if you find yourself in the midst of a PR scandal it’s totally appropriate to wonder how Olivia Pope would handle things. It’s almost like having imaginary friends you didn’t have to come up with yourself.

Thanks to the daring choices and spectacular character development, there are a lot of people from TV land who would make great friends. From the wild and always scheming mind of Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari) on Parks and Recreation to the practical benefits of having Game of Thrones‘ Khaleesi (Emilia Clarke) on your team, to the suave, you-wish-you-were-me air of Don Draper (Jon Hamm) on Mad Men, we compiled 10 TV characters we’d be happy to be friends with in real life.
