TV Characters Who Own Their Uniforms
One of the beautiful things about coming home from a long day after work or school is vegging out and watching some good TV. Whether it’s catching up on your favorite show or just channel surfing, we can’t deny the stress reliever (let alone entertainment) it provides for us. With so many shows currently in production and running it’s hard to keep up sometimes! A really impressive thing with a lot of the shows on today is that they are making the characters more relatable, current, and relevant to what is going on in the world every day. They're living their lives and working their (different and unique) jobs just like many of us around the world.
Over time (and seasons) as shows progress, the character development does as well. We begin to feel attached to these characters. We become devoted and sometimes even like we genuinely know and understand them. We go through what they go through and we grow with them as they go through it. Something that most of us don’t realize though is that these characters that we look up to and let into our homes every week are representing something. They do their jobs and wear their “uniforms” proudly and remain resilient through what is thrown at them, just like the rest of us. A quick peak into four remarkably popular and different TV shows where the cast and characters completely own their uniforms.
Two Broke Girls.
This sitcom is one for the record books. With Max’s naughty one liners and Caroline’s adjustment to “poor life” the laughs and antics never stop coming. What these two represent is what a lot of Americans work for. Having to take a job waitressing at a diner in order to pay their bills while in their spare time working outside the diner to build and accomplish their dreams of a dessert bar. Wearing their custom mustard and red colored uniforms Max and Caroline highlight sarcasm, passion, and antics in the best of ways.
Ah, good old Barry Allen. This show is a classic representation of someone who was thrusted into something unexpectedly and now has to basically live two lives. Barry Allen turning into The Flash was the best thing to ever happen to Central City. Week after week watching him grow with his powers while our hearts are consistently pounding with anxiety and shock; Barry truly has become a real superhero. Going from forensic investigator for the Central City P.D. to literally “flashing” into this superhero suit to save the day, Barry is an amazing example of how to wear a uniform that comes with a whole other identity with pride.
Firehouse 51 is home to the most loved and respected firefighters in the city of Chicago. Representing our American heroes that do this difficult job day in and day out. Being a firefighter comes with a lot of responsibility and hard work; along with the stress, anxiety, and drama that they experience every single day. Because it is a TV show, of course there always some love twists and turns as well as family and department drama. But when they get that call and it comes down to doing their jobs, Firehouse 51 puts their classic uniforms on, buckle down and save lives.
The only reality show out of the four; Below Deck is a fantastic, interesting and dramatically entertaining show that is on Bravo. The show allows the viewers to see what it is like to be a "yachtie" working on a crew aboard lavish and beautiful yachts. Sailing for months at a time, the small crew (again along with drama of course) need to consistently work together to pull off a flawless trip for each and every passenger that comes aboard the ship. Wearing their uniforms in this show means everything as they are representation of not only the captain, but the name and reputation of the ship. Looking put together and polished, being respectful of all passengers and their needs, and making sure everyone actually does their job is a whole other job in itself for these crews!
