Manage episode 343110096 series 2396581
In this episode of Welcome To The Party Pal hosts Michael Shields and Ryan O' Connell set forth to answer one of the most impossible questions in television: Who is the greatest HBO character of all time? Basing their conversation on an article written by Ryan O' Connell at BroBible titled, "Who Is The Greatest HBO Character of All Time? We Set Up A Massive Battle Royale To Figure Out The G.O.A.T," the two overly prepared hosts analyze all the characters who have inhabited the programs of arguably the premiere television network ever. Does the cream of the crop hail from The Wire (Omar? / Bubbles? / McNulty?), Game of Thrones (Daenerys? / Cersei?), or perhaps one of HBO's acclaimed comedies (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Veep, Eastbound & Down)? Find out in an episode that offers a definitive answer to this pressing question. Beyond getting to the bottom of the best of the best, Michael and Ryan go on to tip their hat to a few notable Honorable Mentions, and then discuss some Future Stars from the rookie class (Rue from Euphoria / Kendall from Succession / etc.) that could one day be in the running for the top spot.
Ryan O’Connell is a writer, event professional, and one-time musician from the great state of Maine who currently resides in New Jersey. He has contributed work to UPROXX, Heavy, and BroBible. He also maintains his own blog Giddy Up America. Ryan has watched ‘The Wire’ all the way through five times and as a result, will make reference to it on a near-regular basis.
Two articles mention in this episode of note: "The Top 20 Episodes of Breaking Bad" and "Boardwalk's Empire."
