30 Days of Fictional Females Meme - Day Six: Favourite female-driven show

Day Six: Favourite female-driven show
I had to think about this for a while before I even came up with an answer. Most things that are female driven are not on subjects that interest me because too often female-character driven things means it is about dating, shopping, and other stereotyped "feminine" things that either bore or annoy me depending on how they are handled and my general mood. I realize this is a gross overstatement and counterexamples do exist, but I think I'll stand by the basic idea. I finally came up with an answer. We're going to rock it old school and go with The Golden Girls. Four older women just living their lives. How can you not love them? They have personalities and nuance and are just awesome, independent women. I love them all!

That was the hardest question for me, too, when I pondered about this meme, for exactly the same reasons you list. I'm happy you came up with a show! Actually, not knowing even one female-driven show shocked me so much, I started watching the first episodes of Buffy this weekend... So far I can't honestly call it my favourite show, but it's a start. This meme is working. :-)

If there were a question for female character you've heard about and will probably like if you ever get around to watching her show, Buffy would almost certainly be at the top of the list for me. I really should get around to it someday but there is so much other stuff!
