The Five: TV characters we men would like to meet under the mistletoe

mistletoeWhile we were all extremely impressed with Anna's list, there was just something... "lacking" from it. Where were all the girls? I mean, it's The Five: TV Chracters I'd like to meet under the Mistletoe, not The Five: Guys I'd like to meet under the Mistletoe. So in keeping with the season, and the spirit of competition here at TV Squad, we, the gentlemen of TV Squad, proudly present to you our own list of TV Characters we wouldn't mind bumping into under the Mistletoe.

5. Nancy McKeon (Jo from The Facts of Life)

nancy mckeonI have to admit, when C.K first said "Jo from The Facts of Life", I was a little hesitant. Were we thinking of the same girl? Didn't he mean Blair? She was supposed to be the hot one. Jo was the one who wore a leather jacket in opening credits, for crap's sake. Yet, the more I looked at pictures of Nancy as I searched the web for a good picture, the more I was intrigued by her dark hair and green eyes -- always a good combo in my book. Plus, there was normally one episode a season where Jo was forced to dress up like a girl, and she was always a knock out in that. Also, she'd be able to fix your dirtbike.

4. Barbara Eden (Jeannie from I Dream of Jeannie)

barbara edenJeannie may have played a part in why I joined the Air Force to begin with. Who's never fantasized about finding a magic genie that would grant every wish you wanted? It's something that everyone has. Now wrap that fantasy up in a blonde haired, blue eyed bombshell, and you've got every guy's wish. I wasn't born until decades after the show went off the air, but I would catch the repeats growing up, and they made that time between when The Price is Right went off and Ducktales came on go a little bit faster. There's been rumors that Jessica Alba is going to play Jeannie on the big screen, opening a whole new generation to wishes coming true.

3. Sienna Miller (Fiona from Keen Eddie)

sienna millerSure, you just know she's probably one of the biggest snobs on the face of the planet, and she's been corrupted because none of us will ever be as pretty as Jude Law, but I'd try and grow mistletoe on the top of my head just on the off chance that I'd be in the same area code as Ms. Miller. Her character Fiona on Keen Eddie was kind of the stereotypical bitch that you knew would eventually fall for the lead, but she had her moments. Their constant bickering was always a source of entertainment as well. Unfortunately, we never got to see exactly where their relationship was heading because of another genius Fox move....

2. Heather Thomas (Jody from The Fall Guy)

    - submitted by Tom Biro
heatherOK, she was a hot stuntwoman who midnighted as a bounty hunter. As a kid growing up in the '80's, it doesn't get much cooler. My mom would try and make me turn away during the opening credits when she would walk through those swinging bar doors in the bikini. Ah yes, the things dreams are made of. Heather still doesn't look bad today. I yearn for the day when The Fall Guy comes out on DVD, though. I still have the Lee Majors-sung theme song in my iPod. I listen to it before I head out to the bars, hoping I'll meet a "Jody" there.

1. Tiffani Thiesen (Kelly from Saved by the Bell)

tiffaniI'm the one writing this article, so my girl gets to go on top. When trying to come up with my entry, my mind really raced. I mean, I love Vanessar Marcil, Sienna Miller, Carmen Electra, so many girls on TV that I could go on with 20 "The Five" lists, but when I really thought about a TV crush, I had only one girl in mind: Kelly Kapowski. Tiffani Thiesen was great in 90210 and extremely hot in the all-too-short Fastlane, but if there was ever one girl I wanted as a girlfriend, Kelly was it. Popular, yet sensitive; not a genius, but not a ditz. She could be both the Homecoming Queen and the president of the Human Rights Initiative, and you knew she wasn't just doing one to get votes for the other. You're my TV crush, Tiffani Thiessen.

So there you have 'em -- The guys of TV Squad's five characters we'd like to see under the mistletoe this holiday season. Let us know what you think.

From current TV: A. hang the mistletoe over Rhona Mitra's desk, please. B. Bone's lab girl could give me the lead star's nickname. C. To "Cameron" on House: "Doctor, when I see Rhona Mitra I can't stand up straight without a pain in my midsection! Would you please give me a very close and detailed examination?" D. Paulie Perlette on NCIS, just gives me the jollies, even more than the luscious lab girl on Bones. E. Marla Sokoloff of the defunct Practice: "Take a seat in my dentist chair, hon."

How can you not include the 'verse's cutest starship mechanic, Kaylee, from "Firefly"?

And what about the lovely Samantha McCall (Kelly Monaco) from "General Hospital" and the callipygous Maggie Beckett (Kari Wuhrer) from "Sliders"? This list might be never-ending ...

Another few female characters I'd like to see puckering up for me on Christmas morning: Michelle Chan (Kelly Hu) from "Nash Bridges," Claire McCarron (Margaret Colin) from "Leg Work," the challenging Dr. Jordan Cavanaugh (Jill Hennessy) from "Crossing Jordan," and yet another doctor, this one Claire Allen (Paula Marshall) from "Cupid."

Hell I much prefer Serena over Samantha or Jeannie (or for that matter Jeannie's sister Jeannie). Serena was just more fun, and I wouldn't doubt that at least once she tried to find out what Sam really saw in Darren (if you get my drift).
