Day 15 - Favourite female character

Part of the reason I've taken FOREVER to get to Day 15 is because I struggled with this a lot.

On the heels of Dean Cain's Clark Kent, I wondered about Teri Hatcher's Lois Lane, because I did really enjoy the character. But that didn't feel right. How about Dr. Beverly Crusher, whom I've always adored? That didn't feel quite right, either. Willow Rosenberg? Tara Maclay? Nope, not what I was looking for.

I thought about Kimberly Brock from Picket Fences or any number of characters from All My Children (Julie Chandler, Hayley Vaughn, Erica Kane, Mona Kane, Bianca Montgomery, Maggie Stone, Frankie Stone) and a couple from Guiding Light (Olivia Spencer, Natalia Rivera) and even from One Life to Live (Kelly Cramer) but discarded them all.

How about Irina Derevko, who sits there happily in my icons? Tempting. But she's not my favourite because she's, you know, a vicious killer at times. ;)

After contemplating various others, like CJ Cregg, any number of women from The L Word, Nancy Botwin from Weeds, skimming over Dana Scully, briefly considering Juliet and Sun from Lost and hell, Erica on V (played by Elizabeth Mitchell as well), I finally realized which character I admired, rooted for, sympathized with and generally felt for more than any other.

She's a character who has always made me want to smile, laugh, cry or be terrified depending on what was happening to her on screen at the time. I've always enjoyed watching her do damn near anything, whether it's tailing her best friend's boyfriend, making out on the job, diving off a hotel balcony into a swimming pool, spending some quality time with her mom...

Yep. Sydney Bristow is my favourite female television character.

Day 16 - Guilty pleasure show

Most 1980s-era sitcoms. Everything from The Golden Girls to Family Ties to Growing Pains to The Cosby Show. I'll sit and watch these reruns over and over again. At the moment, I've been watching a ton of episodes of Perfect Strangers on YouTube, courtesy of someone calling himself (or herself) The Masked Mypiot, which just cracks me up.

Day 17 - Favourite miniseries

Gotta be V. :)
