    You beat me to it. I can’t believe no one else considered Lucas.

  8. Frank Gallagher from Shame\ess (U.S.)
    But mostly for the example of how not to be a dad.

    good one! Also, one of those TV characters that mysteriously changed actors between the pilot and the regular series.

    And the change was for the better IMHO. No disrespect for the actor that was replaced.
  13. Al Bundy all the way...

    I don’t know if Bryan Mills qualifies, but
    “He has a particular set of skills.”

    The best dad wasn’t on TV, he was mine. He taught me how to wrench and split wood, he taught me to think and to question authority. He taught me how to be a husband. Both of us have a temper- we inherited it from his father, my namesake, who was a bit of a jerk. When he and my mother argued, sometimes he would just go out to the garage and tinker. It was his way of blowing off steam. To this day, when I start to get animated, I stop
    Were I ever kidnapped, I would want him as my father :)
  16. Life of Riley. I feel old.
