I really enjoyed Wesley on Angel, who was introduced way late in the show's run.

I'm pretty sure that was a violation of the AUP in regards to animated gifs.

I have a real soft spot for Gil, and I hope one day The Simpsons ends with him winning the lottery or something.

But I do have to quibble with this assessment of Season 4 of The Wire:


Where Dukie and Randy try to make the best out of the life they've been handed, however, Namond and especially Michael give in, and become part of the problem.

 Really? Has the author not finished watching it or something?

FirstNationalBastard: I really enjoyed Wesley on Angel, who was introduced way late in the show's run.


I hope that's sarcasm, because he's episode 10, and a crossover.  Fred and Lorne however are worthy of the list.

I hope you can't sarcasm while calling someone out about sarcasm because Lorne was in season 2.  Not exactly late in Angels 5(?) season run.

Daniel Faraday was a great choice. L O S T had a way of bringing in cool characters later on. Faraday, Richard Alpert, Man in Black, Jacob, Miles, Lapidus...good stuff.

You should see what the people at HISOEdotcom did for Lapidus.

Lost was awesome for characters, horrible for plot.

/still loved that show, though

What about Ted McGinley doing it twice? Once as Roger Phillips and the other as Jefferson D'Arcy.

He was late in  Buffy, but not so much in Angel.  Point taken otherwise.

I was watching Will and Grace yesterday and think that Leslie Jordan's character, Beverly Leslie, would fit into this category.

For once, subby, you are right.  Butters' first speaking part was in Season 3, the show is now in season 16?  17?  GIl was first in Season 9, she show is going into season 25. Rebecca Howe was in more episodes than Diane.

The writer of this article may be mentally stunted.

How does this list not have Mike from Breaking Bad?

Not to mention thinking that 'Leopold' might be a girl's name.

Also needs more Bob Rooney.

He was not even that late into Buffy at just over half way into season 3 of 7, that is mid-way at worst.

Along with Faraday and Miles don't forget Charlotte. Not nearly as interesting but so hot. And by this writer's definition of the show you could also call Juliet a late introduced character, and she was probably one of my favourite characters on the show.

On Married with Children he was introduced in season 5 and lasted until season 11.  He was on longer than the guy he replaced.

I'd say Wesley had the best character arc out of all the Buffy/Angel characters.  Such a naive idealist when first introduced, ended up a battle hardened realist who dug deep into his darker side to do what he thought was necessary.  Happy he ultimately redeemed himself at the end.

That also is true to some extent for Faith.  One of the things I liked about  Angel more than  Buffy was that it was darker in tone.  It wasn't always as successful as  Buffy in achieving its goals, but it took a (generally) more nuanced look that  Buffy did.  That being said, I think the scriptwriting was overall better on  Buffy maybe for the same reasons.

Yuck.  She is possibly one of the worst characters introduced late in a show's run,

I would add Seven of Nine onto the list as well as Taylor Townsend and Che on the O.C.

I think even pro-choice people would agree that damn kid should've been aborted from the script.
