We’ve all seen the Father’s Day articles where they list television’s best dads but we decided to give a shout out to those dads who aren’t necessarily the best but aren’t exactly the worst either. See if you agree, and if not, let us know in the comments below.
Walter White (Breaking Bad)
Everything began for Walter White with doing whatever it took to keep his family well off if he happened to die from cancer. Sure, things took a turn for the worst, and some would argue he ended up doing everything for himself, but with an ending like that, you have to give the guy some credit.
Al Bundy (Married With Children)
No father should ever run off on his family, but it takes at least a half decent dad to not run off on a family as horrible as Al Bundy’s. Not only that, he worked a miserable job to support them all, too.
Frank Reynolds (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia)
Even after Frank finds out his kids aren’t his he still views them as his own and even roommates with his other (later to be found out) son.
Dexter (Dexter…did I really have to state this?)
Sure, he essentially abandoned his son, but when all said and done not only did Dexter do what he thought was best but he rid the planet of some of its most horrible people, essentially leaving the world a better place for everyone, including his son. Can you say you’ve done something like that for your kids?
Frank Costanza (Seinfeld)
Any father who not only lets his son live with him, at the age George Costanza is, but lets his son live with him who IS George Costanza, can’t be the world’s worst dad.
