Those three are correct. Although it only lasted a season, the McDowell version of Fantasy Island is my favourite. Nicely twisted humour.

Re: TV Series Trivia

For each of these, recurring characters will talk about themselves. Identity the character and the show. Some may be at least partly unreliable narrators. In at least one case I used an earlier status quo for a character, not the most recent one.

1. I'm from an European country and I keep the office tidy for an American politician. A very annoying man has come to work for him as well. He doesn't care that he talks about me behind my back but close enough that I can hear everything.

2. As you know a virus has swept across the entire world. I'm an ex-con who was given an experimental treatment in exchange for my freedom. I'm not quite infected, not quite not infected. Because I have the only known possible cure, my crew has to keep me safe whether they like me or not.

3. My crew is very crass and crude and fails to recognize my brilliance. The closest person I have for a friend on the ship has suffered a great loss (which I may or may not have been accidentally responsible for) and his completely unfounded irritation towards me (it should be the other way around) helps keep him from falling into despair over his loss.

4. On my world, which shares the same larger government as yours, felines are the dominant species. I joined a government run crew of space explorers towards the tail end of their five year mission.

5. I am fiercely loyal to my best friend, whom I'm trying to bring home. Some would say I'm a bit of a womanizer, but the great love of my life left me for another man when she thought I was dead, so don't I deserve to be?

6. I run a major company and am trying to restore the family name, largely ruined by one of my parents and especially one of my siblings. I have trouble letting my guard down, so when I do, I bond deeply with my friends. If anyone betrays this trust, especially by lying to me, I won't become the villain the world already thinks I am, but the former friend might have trouble telling the difference.

7. I am a frustrated actor who wants it all. I want both the fame and to only be seen in works that can be seen as great art, not tripe for the masses. Instead I've found myself on a crappy sitcom spouting a stupid catchphrase.

8. I'm black, but due to my, uh, pig man... pig... shade of colour, many people think I'm white. I've interviewed a lot of famous people, though I'm not sure who all of them are. I once try to make a movie starring myself as a famous character but they said I couldn't make the movie. Something stupid about branding I think, whatever branding has to do with making a movie.

9. I once accidentally burned my parents alive. I'm actually an okay guy if you earn my loyalty, but if you tell anyone, I'll kill you. And that goes double if you tell anyone I pretend to be a woman so I can write romance novels.

10. I'm a canine who's older and smarter than I look. I wander around this country helping people, and no one suspects how different I really am from other canines. One a couple of people cam close to learning my secret so I got them out of the way for a short time and erased the proof of my existence.

11. I am very long lived and currently reside in a major city in a country that didn't exist when I was turned. It was my own child who turned me, so in a way my child is also my parent. My closest friend is sometimes also my enemy; he cares too much for our prey.

12. I'm a man who doesn't get enough respect, not from my family - either family - and especially not my mother. I see a psychiatrist to help me deal with the crap I have to deal with, and that could be very bad news for me if my other family ever finds out.

13. I'm going to a secondary school for superheroes but I'm training to be a villain, something I don't bother to try to hide. Despite this, I'm in a band with a group of other superheroes and a fellow villain. I have a bit of a rivalry going with the lead singer.

14. I travel through time and space in pursuit of power. I've killed a lot of people and even tried to kill another incarnation of myself that had gone too soft, working too closely with my best frenemy.

15. I'm a young scientist working with a group of super-powered people trying to help them control their powers and encouraging them go go out and help others. I don't have any powers of my own but I'm very enthusiastic and it's that enthusiasm that brought the team together and keeps them together. I sometimes like to sing while at work.

16. I'm an editor at a book publisher. Growing up I watched a lot of cheesy movies on TV, and now when I'm stressed or bemused, I flash back to something I watched on TV. I'm divorced and while I date, I really just want my wife back.

17. I'm a scientist who goes on adventures for a government agency that investigates unusual threats. I'm in love with my lab partner and will do anything to make them happy, even if it means rescuing someone they love more. Someone I trusted caused me to have brain damage for a time, but I later recovered.

18. I suffer from a serious skin condition and reality tends to blur for me, my mind wanting to escape from the hospital even though my body can't. In at least one reality that I imagine I'm a perfectly healty PI. Singing is a big part of my halucinations.

19. I'm a tough as nails cop who knows exactly what I'm doing, even though my boss insists otherwise. I think even my partner has doubts about me, but what do they know? How tough am I? I even talk to my gun.

20. I travel through time but don't quite know how to control my time machine. I picked up some friends mid-20th century and keep trying to get them back to their proper time. If you try to hurt any of them I'll zap you!

2, 5, 10-14, 17, 19 are correct. For 15 you're on the right track, but El could shrink so it's not him. As you surmised, 20 is not The Doctor.

Some of them I did had to take extra care to minimize other possibilities (e.g. mentioning the rivalry with the lead singer to rule out Dirty Trixie on the same show for 13).

Re: TV Series Trivia

15 isn't Dick. While the overall boss, he wasn't an active part in the Misfits' adventures nor was he all that young.

1 is incorrect but on the right track.

3 and 18 are correct. In 3's case, unreliable narrator where his greatness is concern. Different series conflict on whether Rimmer in fact caused the vending machine accident or whether he was too incompetent to even do that by accident.

Those are correct and In was going from memory so you're probably right about Gretchen's exact role. I do recall for sure that "I can hear you!" was a catchphrase of hers.

Re: TV Series Trivia

Calling a day on the following, with an add to each:

6. I run a major company and am trying to restore the family name, largely ruined by one of my parents and especially one of my siblings. I have trouble letting my guard down, so when I do, I bond deeply with my friends. If anyone betrays this trust, especially by lying to me, I won't become the villain the world already thinks I am, but the former friend might have trouble telling the difference.
ADD: (Later) A perceived betrayal led me down a bad path, but I've come back from that, regaining the trust of those I hurt and learning to trust them in return.

7. I am a frustrated actor who wants it all. I want both the fame and to only be seen in works that can be seen as great art, not tripe for the masses. Instead I've found myself on a crappy sitcom spouting a stupid catchphrase.
Add: I told my story to a famous singer and he come up with a humiliating song about me on the spot.

8. I'm black, but due to my, uh, pig man... pig... shade of colour, many people think I'm white. I've interviewed a lot of famous people, though I'm not sure who all of them are. I once try to make a movie starring myself as a famous character but they said I couldn't make the movie. Something stupid about branding I think, whatever branding has to do with making a movie.
Add: Many of da famous people I talk to are in politics

9. I once accidentally burned my parents alive. I'm actually an okay guy if you earn my loyalty, but if you tell anyone, I'll kill you. And that goes double if you tell anyone I pretend to be a woman so I can write romance novels.
Add: I suck at parenting but I'm trying to be better.

16. I'm an editor at a book publisher. Growing up I watched a lot of cheesy movies on TV, and now when I'm stressed or bemused, I flash back to something I watched on TV. I'm divorced and while I date, I really just want my wife back.
Add: A lot of my flashbacks involve an actor who later became a well known politician.

20. I travel through time but don't quite know how to control my time machine. I picked up some friends mid-20th century and keep trying to get them back to their proper time. If you try to hurt any of them I'll zap you!
Add: My zaps have a way of making things worse, but I keep trying!
