Fathers are not usually given credit in influencing their children as much as the mothers are. Fathers are expected to earn the bucks and the mothers are the ones who raise the kids.
Below are some of the fathers who exert more influence than what is normally believed.
Read and you just might find a close one to the relationship you have with your father.
10. Walter and Peter Bishop
TV Show: Fringe
Portrayed by: John Noble and Joshua Jackson
Peter is a genius and is also a son of another genius, Walter. Peter has not seen Walter since Walter was checked in an insane asylum. The next time they saw each other, Peter learned that Walter worked on fringe science and the only way Walter would work again is if Peter works with him.
Walter seems incapable of making any sort of emotional connection and often makes it hard for Peter to establish any sort of father-son relationship. Peter is often sarcastic in his remarks towards his father. Despite these, they work well together. Peter takes care of all “engineering” and “muscle” work while Walter takes care of the biology side of it.
Peter often calls his father Walter but when he had a near-death experience, he called Walter “Dad” which visibly touched Walter.
9. Dan, Lucas and Nathan Scott
TV Show: One Tree Hill
Portrayed by: Paul Johansson, Chad Michael Murray, and James Lafferty
Nathan is a controlling father who pushes his son, Nathan, to his limits. He is also an asshole who abandoned Lucas when Lucas was still a kid. As his children grew up and realized how their father is spoiling their lives, they decided to join forces and ignore their father. Being the asshole that he is, he devices ways on how to make the lives of his two sons a living hell.
8. Jimmy and Hope Chance
TV Show: Raising Hope
Portrayed by: Lucas Neff
They have all the right ingredients for a good future for the kid. Jimmy is a 23-year-old who is clueless about raising a child and everything else. Before having Hope, he met and had sex with Lucy, resulting in her pregnancy and the birth of Hope. He did not know about Hope until eight months later after contacting Lucy. He also did not know that Lucy was a serial killer until she was put in prison by his family.
7. Jor-El and Kal-El
TV Show: Smallville
Portrayed by: Terence Stamp and Tom Welling
Unlike the other fathers on this list, Jor-El was already dead in the beginning of Smallville. His thoughts and brains lived on, however. Clark’s access to him was limited to the Fortress. He put Clark through different tests to prepare him to fulfill the mission set out for him.
Jor-El was never really known for showing his affection to Clark. Despite this, his influence over his son is so powerful that he has essentially dictated the way Clark lives his life.
6. Homer and Bart Simpson
Portrayed by: Sean Hayes and Michael Angarano
