Golly Gee, Am I the Poster Girl?

I read Joss Whedon’s list of his top twenty-five TV characters as inspired by James Gunn’s list. I found both very interesting, so I thought I’d take on the challenge and make my own list, Girl Friday style.

Girl Friday’s Top 25 Television Superheroines
In no particular or scientific order…

Bad Asses
1. Kara “Starbuck” Thrace, Battlestar Galactica
2. Buffy Summers, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
3. Sydney Bristow, Alias
4. Zoe Washburne, Firefly
5. Faith Lehane, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Beauty and Brains
1. Dana Scully, X-Files
2. Alma Garret, Deadwood
3. Liz Parker, Roswell
4. Willow Rosenberg, Buffy the Vampire Slayer
5. Winifred “Fred” Burkle, Angel

Silver Tongued
1. Daria Morgendorffer, Daria
2. Darlene Connor, Roseanne
3. Lorelai Gilmore, Gilmore Girls
4. Veronica Mars, Veronica Mars
5. Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City

1. Jaye Tyler, Wonderfalls
2. Calamity Jane, Deadwood
3. Georgia “George” Lass, Dead Like Me
4. Anya Jenkins, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

2. Maria DeLuca, Roswell
3. Kaylee Frye, Firefly
4. Cindy “Mac” Mackenzie, Veronica Mars

As I am much too lazy to do the linkage for each of these ladies, please visit IMDB or Wikipedia for more information. If you aren’t familiar with the shows on the list, go to Netflix now—I beg of you—for the sake of our continued friendship!

    I agree with LL and would love to befriend all of the Silver Tongued ladies. But, you know the one I want to meet most is that Bad Ass Kara Thrace!

    Definitely the Silver Tongued ladies take the cake… but let us not underestimate the lore of the Miss-Anthropists!
