    Ok, guys, this is something that's been done to death, I realize that, but we over at the wiki are trying to come up with a rank for all the main characters of the series, you know, just to pass the time. Anyone who's interested can rank the 28 characters (and, maybe, even the supporting characters).

    Yep, they haven't. Most characters who have died are either recurring or semi-recurring ones. Some episodic characters too. Only seven regular characters (if we count with Chuck) have died over the course of the series. They're too easy on regulars dying.

    As for Ben, yes, the press releases would have us believe that, but Charles Mesure has always been billed in the "also starring" section of the credits.

    rentlover1, you got it wrong, you're supposed to rank the 28 main characters, and, if you want, the 15 supporting ones as well. That's what we're going with to determine the favorite characters on average.

    I put her on 4 in my list and I'm surprised too, because I kind of hated her in the first few episodes. But she's really grown on me since then and while she still shows some resemblance to Edie, Vanessa has made the character her own.

    I think I like Renee because she's relatively new to the show and hasn't been through that much. The other characters we know by now and to be honest, they all have their bad sides. Renee has some too, but they're mostly played out for laughs and that story of her wanting kids that pops up now and then makes her someone interesting and easy to root for.

    I forgot to mention this here, a few days ago I also changed Renee's ranking in my list over at the wiki, she is now between Juanita and Zach.
