It's Turkey Day, so we ranked TV's turks. Don't overthink it.

He's J.D.'s best friend. He's a cool guy. He'd be great to eat turk with on turkey day.

2. Turk Barrett from Marvel's Daredevil

This Turk is too much of a criminal to want to eat turk with, but he's a good character. His house arrest ankle monitor saved the day.

3. The Young Turks

Turks who talk about politics. Maybe you don't want to eat turk with them today if you're trying not to argue with your relatives.

4. Turks

​Sarah Trigger, David Cubitt, Michael Muhney, William DeVane, Ashley Crow, Helen Carey and Matthew Armstrong, Turks

TONY ESPARZA


Turks
was a cop show that ran for one season in 1999. Sarah Trigger was a cast member. Sarah Trigger was also the female lead in Deadfall, an insane Nicolas Cage movie. She's terrible in it. It's one of the worst movies ever made and it rules.


5. Turk Nowitzki

Turk Nowitzki is the greatest European basketball player in NBA history. He's an NBA champion, NBA MVP, Finals MVP and 13-time all-star. His signature one-legged fadeaway jumper is impossible to defend. He's spent his whole career with the Dallas Mavericks. God bless Turk Nowitzki. He is welcome to eat turk at my house whenever he wants.
