Pop (Culture) a Squat: Entertainment’s Best Chairs

Tio Salamanca's Chair in 'Breaking Bad'

AMC
Tio Salamanca's wheelchair isn't just his mode of transportation, it's his voice. So much more than just a prop, Salamanca's chair — and its attached bell — is an extension of his character. Not to mention, the chair plays a vital role in Season 4's explosive finale.

HBO
Invisible Obama should be glad he's never had to verbally spar with Clint Eastwood in this chair. Made out of enemies' swords and the fire of dragons, the Iron Throne is an uncomfortable, jagged deathtrap, because a real king (or President?) should never sit easy. Sit easy, Joffrey!

Today's magic word is: CHAIRS!!! AHHHHHHH!!! 'Pee-Wee's Playhouse' had plenty of lovable characters, but perhaps none more so than Chairry the Chair, who looked just as cozy as she seemed. Plus, it takes a special kind of chair that has eyes and the ability to hug you to not come of as terrifying, but adorable. Three cheers for Chairry! {Image Credit: Kevin Mazur/HBO}

Paramount Television
Space isn't the final frontier, plush Naugahyde upholstery is! Well, that is if you believe in the importance of the captain's chair on 'Star Trek,' the one that Captain Kirk would fake jostle in when the USS Enterprise would hit turbulence or that Captain Picard would rule from. Sure the phasers and teleporters were cool, but this chair was bad ass.

Aidan's Chair for Carrie in 'Sex and the City'

HBO
This chair is the sole reason Carrie refused Aidan. That is complete nonsense. I mean, the chair says it all. Look at how sexy that chair is. And he made it with his own hands. Only a crazy woman would dismiss a man like that.

Juno's La-Z-Boy in 'Juno'
Juno's La-Z-Boy in 'Juno'
Fox Searchlight Pictures
"It all started with a chair." And then it continued with a fetus, short running shorts, cheeseburger phones, tons of Orange Tic-Tacs, and two Homeskillets in love. Juno can't credit anyone else but you, chair, for taking her on her teen pregnancy adventure. And, you know, hormones.
