Sue Heck (Eden Sher), The Middle
In a TV landscape full of cynical, sarcastic characters, Sue is a breath of fresh air. Sure she's socially awkward, but her bubbly optimism comes through in everything she does. (Not many people would be smiling after learning that they need braces — for a second time!) She may be often overlooked or excluded by her peers, but her warmth and her genuine personality makes us wish she was part of our circle of friends right now!
