    Wait...wasn't Rampart the Hospital used for the series Emergency 51 back in the 70's. Yuuup

    The series follows the early years of the paramedic program in the Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD) with the focus on the personnel of Fire Station 51, in particular of young firemen/paramedics John Gage (Randolph Mantooth) and Roy DeSoto (Kevin Tighe). The paramedics coordinate with the Emergency Room (ER) staff of Rampart General Hospital: head physician Dr. Kelly Brackett (Robert Fuller), head nurse Dixie McCall (Julie London), neurosurgeon Dr. Joe Early (played by Julie's real-life husband Bobby Troup), and young intern Dr. Mike Morton (Ron Pinkard).

    Game of Thrones: Tyrion Lannister has changed from being the weird, sex-crazed midget to the lone voice of reason in Kings Landing, better at war strategy than the rest of this family, and a caring and devoted boyfriend. Might be the biggest transformation I've seen.

    He's become my favorite character in the series (save the Khaleesi). And no, I haven't read the novel to see how he evolves. This is as of the HBO show's portrayal.

    Same with the Will & Grace cast.

    I was the same way. Everyone raved about it and it annoyed me to no end. Then I watched it. While its not my favorite series of all time, its really really damn good. It is not on Netflix though. I torrented all the episodes and watched em thru AppleTV.

    By the end of the series the whole MASH universe was so far from the book and original movie, the only thing it shared was a name.

    All of the characters on The Office. In the beginning, their subtle idiosyncrasies balanced each other out. Now, the writers exploit those bits of personality so that the characters are defined by them. Meredith is always hypersexed, Angela might as well be Amish, Erin is stupid, Andy is stupid, Kevin is an idiot. I hate what's become of the show and watch it less and less. I wish NBC would put it out of its misery already.

    In season 1, Kelly was a stereotypical indian girl. Clearly, very different now.

    I used to like Kevin. Now he's hardly in it (like Creed and others) and when he is in it, he's beyond stupid. He used to be at least funny and entertaining. I keep watching because this is the last season and I feel that if I've come this far, I might as well see it to the end. I did the same thing with Friends when actually I should've dropped out a few seasons before it ended.

    Bobby Goren. He started out so on top of things and a step ahead of everyone. By the end he seemed battered and beaten down. I know his white whale, Nicole, took it's toll but the way he sort of went nuts and then seemed to be living on the edge was very disturbing.

    I still don't know how the last scene of that show was supposed to be perceived...are we supposed to think everything's alright with him, or that he is all the way off of the deep end, and clinging to the last bit of normalcy/sanity he has?

    Rosanne: Becky had a radical transformation ... and then back .... and then again .... and then .....

    Bewitched: Daren changed drastically in 1969 as well, though his change seemed to be permanent.

    I'm not sure. I'm watching some old CI's on Netflix so maybe I'll check it out. Don't he and Eames drive off? There was supposed to maybe be another dozen episodes or so but they never came about.

    I loved the show except for the whole mental hospital off the grid stuff.

    Edit. just watched the last show. His shrink was telling him he needed the job. Hard to tell how he felt when he came out and Eames was waiting for him. I was hoping for another season.

    Lana Lang (Smallville) - Started off a sweet normal high school girl. By the end of her run on the series she some sort of over the top bad ass spy type of character. At one point she was a witch, she had super powers, and other complete nonsense. The writing of her character over the course of the show was a total train wreck.

    Bobby Ewing. First he was alive, then he was dead for about a year, and then he was alive again as if nothing ever happened.

    Good one. Theon Greyjoy has gone from being Robb Stark's right hand man to being his enemy. Don't forget the Hound, either. It was strange seeming him develop a soft spot in his heart for Sansa Stark.
