    Post Your favorite female character ...

    Hi. It's me, O-Ra the annoying.

    anyway, i was thinking during the feminist chat ... who is your favorite female character in a TV show, Drama, Comedy, Movie, or Sitcom? or your favorite actress. she should be based on her influence over men, her power, be it physical or mental, her knowledge and her respect for her self.

    here's mine.

    TV Drama: Jennifer Garner, ALIAS. cool, funny, influential, must have a vault of wigs ... respect .. except for the Vaughn escapade, what the heck is wrong with Syd. huh???

    TV Comedy(Sitcom): definatly Debra on Everybody loves Raymond. she is sooo cool. she's short but she's spunky and tough. my mom describes her when she shouts at raymond as an "angry fairy". Some how, that works.

    TV Show (scifi) Amanda Tapping (Carter) and Galyn Gorg (Kendra in Thor's Hammer). Strong, decisive, mental (espceially Kendra), infuelntial and both have respect for themselves.

    Movie: (Actress) I dunno ... Angelina Jolie? Jennifer Garner? something between those two. Jolie is strong, (kinda), mental, influencial .. kinda scary, In the characters she plays mostly. in real life, she may be, i dunno.
    Garner ... well, she's Alias, that's enough.

    is anybody going to see Elektra?

    Sidney was an extremely good character, but then she went straight to hell in season 3. She went from a strong, independent woman to a crying wreck pittying herself for not having Vaughn. This is what made season 3 a massive failure in my eyes. I just can't see someone changing that drasticly that fast. She forgot how to do everything and just went on about Vaughn.

    However I must say my favorite female character (excluding Lya since we dont know much about her) is Chiana from FarScape.
    That was a very interesting character and she still remains one of my all-time favorites. She didn't think sex was taboo and wasn't afraid of talking about it she had a very relaxed attitude towards life but she was also very insecure regarding other areas and she reminded me of a part I see in many young girls today.

    My favorite female character on a tv show is Lorelai Gilmore. Vibrant, alive, able to drum into her daughter that her getting pregnant at 16 was a mistake, without ever giving her the impression that she was a mistake. Which is a thin line to balance on.

    Oooh Lorelai is wonderful! Didn't even think about her... Shame on me.

    River from Firefly is also one of the most interesting females that I can remember.

    Tara too!

    love Sigourney and Teyrl. i noticed that Alien added to the suspense by having almost no soundtrack. deathly silent to really make us jump out of our boots.

    anyone notice?

    Whether it's the episode of Affinity or her role in Smallvill, I think each of Erica Durance's characters were well written and well acted. But as they say, that is JMHO.

    I really liked the character of Dana Scully on XFiles. (Before the whole pregnant-by-? thing, that is.) She was intelligent, strong... and yet flawed. The character learned to relax throughout the series, let down her guard a bit. It was interesting to watch.

    Just my two cents.

    Well, Scully is fun to watch - and make fun of. Did anyone notice that spiritual things kept happening to her and she'd try to find the 'logical explanation." ?

    Annoying.

    Whatever happened to Gillian .... and David for that matter.

    Wasn't Scully a Catholic? She was opposed to supernatural stuff, like aliens and monsters, but there was one episode where she was the believer and Mulder was the skeptic, because it involved religious issues.

    Anyway, I think Gillian Anderson has been involved in theater work. And, David Ducovny has small parts in movies. He's playing Julianne Moore's husband in some upcoming film.

    i guess my tops would be....Amanda Tapping, Jennifer Garner (she's dreaaaaamy), Gina Bellman and Tamzin Outhwaite.

    Gillian Anderson was great back in the day. Marina Sirtis (Troi on ST:TNG) really bothered me for the first 4 seasons or so.....she just seamed so pathetically useless....breasts in a jumpsuit.....but once they gave her a bit real Star Fleet training, a uniform and turned her characater into something a bit deeper than "i feel something but i don't know what, from where or why" she kinda grew on me....

    Yeah, i remember that. It seems that when she's the "spooky" one, he gets all philosophical and scientific.

    Still. most of the time until Mulder was away, Scully was the average scientific nincompoop.

    Talk about breasts in a jumpsuit, er catsuit? That would be Jeri Ryan; although she was given all that info and skills due to her Borg past.

    I have a lot of favorite female characters, but I'm afraid I can't really rank them. So I'm grouping them by show.

    Samantha Carter (Stargate SG-1)- smartest of all listed, beautiful, kicks ass. perfection in a gal.
    Janet Fraiser (Stargate SG-1)- she was just awesome. nuff said.
    Dana Scully (The X-Files)- intellectual scientist as well.
    Lorelai Gilmore (Gilmore Girls)- spazzy, spazzy, spazzy, but fun. and with Luke, can do no wrong.
    Sydney Bristow (Alias)- tough and sassy, but i don't respect much else than the kickass factor.
    Irina Derevko (Alias)- really tough and really sassy. almost puts the kid to shame. much smarter than the daughter.
    Amy Gardner (The West Wing)- if I were to go to law school and become a lobbyist on Capitol Hill, I'd love to be as forceful, tough, and whip smart as this chick. but alas, I'm a scientist who loves to listen to politics instead of participate in it.
    CJ Cregg (The West Wing)- formidable press secretary with acting prowess to boot. the only time i've ever cried watching a TV show was when they killed off her secret service agent BF.
    Max Guevara (Dark Angel)- season one was freakin' awesome. and she was a great gal.
    Michelle Dressler (24)- awesome agent, great wife to Tony Almeida, professional, smart, sacrificing, intelligent, tough, all around great gal.
    Kathryn Janeway (Star Trek: Voyager)- she was captain. she was female. and when i was in elementary school, she was my inspiration to pursue space science. that inspiration carried me pretty far, and i will always respect that.

    And in books/movies:

    Dr. Eleanor "Ellie" Arroway (Contact)- The ultimate role model for me. And the first time I heard of the university I'm attending now was when I read Contact. That book changed my life. Thank you, Carl Sagan, for that book. And Jodie Foster totally nailed the movie.
