11 TV Characters That Are Simply Wasting Away Before Our Eyes

Waste not, want not.

It's what we've been taught since we were children, isn't it?

Yet some TV shows clearly haven't gotten the message, as they're fortunate enough to have some top notch stars and fascinating characters on their roster... yet relegate many of these individuals to the sidelines.

Which characters need a call-up to the main storylines? Who do we wish to see more of on a weekly basis?

Flip through our selections below and let us know which characters you think could use some more love from writers...

Thea Queen -- Arrow
Thea's brother is a superhero. Her father is a super villian. Her boyfriend is a budding superhero and she just unknowingly hired the Black Canary as her bartender. Isn't it time she steps out of the shadows and shows her potential?

i agree about alison, thea and emmett

Spindae-2o

I agree with Thea, Jake and Bonnie. I'm still hoping for Thea to get a chance to shine and if not I hope she gets channeled to The Flash to work on her Daddy issues. Jake hopefully will growth out of T's shadow now that Ling left. And Bonnie is a wrecking ship now being the Anchor isn't really helping I hope that something good will come out of The love triangle mess with Liv. Alison should start be a real real time regular as I already read the final script and Alison will be back.

Lanie Parish in Castle is another good example. Very underestimated character!
