The whole why do Breaking Bad fans hate Skyler thread reminded me of a conversation I once had with someone about how rare it is for someone's favorite character on a tv show to be female. For funsies list as many shows you can think of where your favorite character was a female.

Firefly- Kaylee

Luther- Alice

Avatar: The Last Airbender- Toph

Adventure Time- Marceline

My So-Called Life- Angela

I'm not sure if I have a favorite character in American Horror Story but the female characters are generally better than the male ones.

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Easy enough because most of the characters are girls, hue hue.

The show "Girls" on HBO. Love it, love all the characters, I find the show to be clever and hilarious. Very well written.

First season I would agree. I'm two episodes into Asylum right now and James Cromwell is proving to be the more interesting character.

I love Girls too but funnily enough my favorite character is Adam.

Wasn't meaning to be judgmental, was just a comment that I've never seen anyone else say they like Sansa.

Just the recent my little pony and Cybersix from the 90's

Alice from Workaholics is the only one that comes to mind. That said, Im not really a fan of the the show itself.

#44 Posted by cain006 (8625 posts) -

Mad Men - Peggy. It's kind of a tie between her and Don though honestly.

Can't think of much else.

Strange.

I find Sansa a more interesting and more likable character than Dany. Dany's okay, but she's better in the books than in the tv show. Dany's kind of just a power fantasy character (and she's melodramatic and has a massive ego), whereas I think Sansa has more interesting conflicts and character development.

I think Dany is better written in the books but more likable in the show. The way she swoons over Daario in the book (the stupid f*cking gold toothed, rainbow haired moron) annoys the hell out of me. She comes off as much more mature in the show, which I like. My favorite female characters from the show and books are probably Brienne, Loras and Asha.
