Jaws_Victim: cr7pilot: Roger is genius. It would be difficult to pick a favorite persona, but the episode where he pretends to be Dog the Bounty Hunter is one of my favorites.

my favorite is shallow vows, where he plays a wedding planner. He steals the entire show and everythng done as his jeannie gold planner is hysterical. I personally think that it is the best episode of american dad.

I'm partial to Francine's alter-ego Laurence Fishburne.

They have internet at the old folks home? Cool.
Oh wait, that show was on when I was a kid too.

scottydoesntknow: cr7pilot: Roger is genius. It would be difficult to pick a favorite persona, but the episode where he pretends to be Dog the Bounty Hunter is one of my favorites.

That one was great (and also one of the best episodes, where Stan and Roger get high). "STAN! Damn you and your one outfit!"

I also like his rookie cop persona where he joined the police force and with Stan's help became the top cadet. He then becomes the most corrupt cop in the precinct less than an hour after graduating.

Roger has lost me. I used to love him and his outrageous schemes because he seemed to truly enjoy the thrill of the con. But lately he only seems intent on slaughtering various family members in gruesome ways for increasingly random reasons. It's like he's turned from a con artist into a deranged, murderous psychopath.

I think of people who don't like Seinfeld the same way I think of people who don't like dogs or alcohol. Something is just miswired in them.

Martonio: "Hey, let's make a list with all the alter egos from Seinfeld, The Simpsons, Parks and Recreation, New Girl and Arrested Development, plus a few others and call it a day!"

/AV Club lists suck

You know what the first rule of AV Club is, right?

My favorite "Dr. Van Nostrand" moment was when Kramer came to the Festivus dinner, only to be recognized by George's boss.

Soulcatcher: I was always partial to Karen's (from Will and Grace) alter ego Anastasia Von Beaverhausen.

I'm really surprised that they missed Rusty Shackleford, though. Dale used that name a lot.

Art Vanderlay wins it hands down.

They even had a fun episode where they met the REAL Rusty Shackleford

List missing Dr. Jan Itor from Scrubs, Clive Bixby from Modern Family, and Agent Michael Scarn from The Office.

Benny Russell?  Kay Eaton?  Albert Macklin?

/Not obscure for Fark, but just obscure enough that I imagine a few Google searches may occur.

Its an old timey telephone with the cord. But I suppose you could insert into moist orifices if you wanted to. NTTIAWWT

My favourite part of the Merv Griffin Seinfeld episode is Newman acting as Kramer's Andy Richter (or Ed McMahon) Elaine (or Jerry) asks "What's he doing here?"

"Well he's here to take some of the pressure of me."

BKITU: barefoot in the head: Bewitched - Samantha /Serena.

Technical note: Serena was an entirely separate character, not an alter-ego.

Tru dat.
