Tell us your favorite character and why there your favorite.

For me it would be Ricky, why Ricky? Because he's funny as fuck, and i see some similarities between him and myself. Eg. Constant swearing, bing stupid as fuck, blaiming other people and so on.

Ricky, always Ricky...he reminds me so much of people I grew up with.  He's a nice guy, heart of gold, just gets frustrated a bit easily and doesn't handle things like other do.  You know, he doesn't know how to express himself when he's trying to be properly different.

Well it's no secret that Bubbles draws ladies like flies to honey!  I was a loner child, and always kept lots of kitties to keep me company.  He seems like the one in the park with the most actual redeeming characteristics.  I couldn't help but notice though, especially in one scene when he was standing in the pond with his pants legs rolled up- is it coincidence or not that his character looks just like one of Monty Python's "Gumby" family character sketches (the ones that wore four-cornered scarves on their heads and talked really funny, even for Python characters)?  Anyone know what I'm talking about, or if there's a connection?

ok, i love 'em all - and it is really hard to choose between the three leads - so how about -Who is your favourite secondary character? - i thought the actress who played "Treena" was really good, and i think Trevor is always hilarious.

Hey Witch I never thought of it, but he does remind me of those Python characters.  The "My brain hurts" guys.  I don't know if there is a connection or not other than Clattenburg was a Python fan.

I also noticed in the scene where Cst.  Erica Miller is interogating Julian, at the end he asks her if she wants to come in for a drink.  That was like the Python scene where Palin complains to Cleese, who is dressed as a cop that his wallet was stolen.  At the end Palin asks him if he wants to come back to his place and he says yes.

 Yes I totally thought of that too, a nudge is as good as a wink to a blind bat! :lol: we'll never know unless a cast member tells us!

My favorite non-main character is Sarah, although I also like Billy the sound guy because that answering machine message left me in stitches "this is the best job I've ever had" :lol:

Ricky is great, but my favorites are Cory and Trevor. Especially in the early episodes when they are so out of it, Cory always staring at the camera and squinting, both of them always doing their hand "are we cool?" gesture. They're hilarious. I think Sam Losco is great too. He really cracks me up because he hates Ricky more than anybody, plus he loves his BBQ and you always see him BBQ'ing no matter what. Sometimes it's just in the background. He's hilarious in the Bare Pimp project, when you see how pissed off he is about being framed, then he pops up with a shotgun.

His first appearance was so funny. "I've only known one guy who got shot twice in one day in unrelated incidents...and he was a REAL dick."

His appearance this season was awesome. "SMoking much dope lately boys? You guys are fucked!"

Ricky, because he's dumb as fuck. Truth be told, I would probably roll my eyes and shake my head at people that are like him in real life (that stupid-though I don't know if they exist, lol), but he's just such a funny character.

It's gotta be Ricky because because I know several stupid growers who are stupid as fuck,drink way too much and get busted in their big beater cars and then lead the cops back to their grows! For all of their fuck ups I love them just the same. So , for me Ricky is a great amalgamation of some of the funniest guy that I have ever known.

I always said Randy because he his a multi-leveled character.  The shirtlessness is brilliant.  To add..this year with the whole "Smokey" alter-ego.  Damn...that is too cool!  He may not have the funniest lines, but just to look at him!  Brilliant character really.

Next, I don't know...I am thinking Jacob.  Basically the 'red shirt guy' from Star Trek.  LOL!  In the odd episode and somehow with a variety of minimum wage jobs..that 'the boys' (mainly Ricky) manages to "F" something up for him and the next episode he is working some other low paying job!  Outstanding!

Of course, the three main boys are great.  Bubbles sensitivity and common-sense.  Julian being the leader who spends more time trying to avoid the law and get ahead in life and look after his friends.  Ricky...who has a huge heart really [except when trailer park dogs are barking] but he is the donkey chasing the carrot!  He has the best intentions..but it never works out for this guy!

Trevor and Cory are the ultimate 'straight guys' in this comedy [and NO, that is not a sexual orientation comment]  These guys are just the ulitimate doormats for Ricky and Julian!  We have all been "Cory and Trevor" at one point in our lives!  Trying to please someone in hopes of gaining friendship in return or to be considered as an 'equal'.

I would say the characters I least relate to [odd being I am a female] are Lucy and Sarah.

Just my two cents.
