I'm also curious how they spin people who were trying to destroy our country as the heroes. Like, sure she's a strong female role model who was trying to kill Americans.

Protip: Sometimes a television show will have a protagonist who is not a hero. See: The Sopranos, Breaking Bad, The Shield.

No - It was the last time there was a pretty clear right and wrong and that kind of moral clarity is very attractive. It's also why we continue to obsess over WWII.

Subby... sigh... If they were literally kicking ass, then they would have their foot on someone's posterior (or on a male donkey) in each of those pictures. I see no evidence that these women kick ass literally.

And it seems the archetypes are not only played out; they're more vapid than ever before.  An inordinate number of "tough" female roles are humorless biatches, self-serving man-eaters or basically dudes with tits.  And when people starting calling that out, nothing adds dimension like a good cry.

I didn't watch much of Xena back in the day having been scared off by the gawdawful trilling, but in hindsight I remember her being infinitely more likeable than most of the kunts stinking up action flicks these days, TV or movie.  Granted I hardly watch any TV anymore but the last "strong" female lead I remember as endearing was Sam Carter from Stargate: SG-1 and that show started in, what, 1997??  I'm sure I missed a few here or there but they'd be diamonds in the diarrhea that is TV these days.

The only two I am familiar with on that list (Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) - Scandal and Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) - Revenge) are not badasses. Both are quite broken characters whose personal lives are greatly influenced/controlled by male counterparts.

Thought this was going to be about the first UFC women's fight this weekend.  Since, literally, they were the only ones who were not just acting like they were kicking ass.

A lot on that list do no ass kicking of any sort. I mean, I can understand Daenerys being inspirational (for the first season/book, the rest....meh). But Claire Danes' character on Homeland (from what I saw) just kept taking punches and then cried in self-pity.

Don't get me started on Sooke....

Well considering how the show is actually playing out I'll give her the nod.  When I watch I think of her as an enemy, but her and her husband also prevent the senseless nuking of either side and think that the Soviets are waaaaaay off in their stance on America.

As for the list, Andrea is a whore who spreads her legs for safety and shoots shambling targets and commits friendly fire.  She is the opposite of bad ass.

No - It was the last time there was a pretty clear right and wrong and that kind of moral clarity is very attractive. It's also why we continue to obsess over WWII.


Moral clarity?  This example of probably dozens springs to mind:

The US brings the world to the brink of nuclear war due to missles in Cuba 'just 90-miles away' while all the while having missles in Turkey, which shared a land border with the USSR.  They agreed to the tit-for-tat removal only on the grounds that the deal be kept secret.

That's not what you might call 'clear.'

There was also that little dust-up in Vietnam...the morality may have been a bit murky there too.

Oh, and Chile, and Nicaragua, and well, essentially everywhere south of the Rio Grande, and deposing the Iranian government and installing the Shah (no blowback there at least), and, and, and...

Watched the first season of that a few weeks ago, before the SyFy premier, it left me sort of meh at first, but the more i thought about it, the overall plot with the interwoven paradoxes was really really smart. And i applaud the writers for ditching the tech for most of the season to prevent themselves from using it as literal deus ex machina.

So they're literally kicking people in the buttocks? Interesting premise. There are probably more effective combat techniques out there.

My favorite bit so far has been the Mexican Grandmother standoff from a few weeks back. I also like how they have made the sides a little morally gray, with the Liber8 group being using brutal violence and an end, yet at the same time having a worthy goal of eliminating a future corporatocracy.

Yeah, totally agree.  I didn't expect too much, but I'm actually really enjoying it.  A surprise plus for SyFy.
