30 Days of Fictional Females Meme - Days Eight and Nine

Tags: ,
With everything yesterday, I forgot to do a meme post so I'll just put two in today.

Day Eight: Favourite female character in a comedy show
Show seems to imply TV and I don't watch too much of that. If I switch it to radio show, I could always say Carolyn from Cabin Pressure but that's a bit of a cheat because I'd mostly just be saying her because she's the only major female character in my favorite comedy show not necessarily because she herself is my favorite anything. Don't get me wrong, I love Carolyn. In particular, I like that she is fiercely independent and strong, which has been both a strength and a weakness for her, and that we have just enough background on her for it to make sense. It's just that if, despite loving them all and loving the relationships between them more than the individuals, if I had to pick a single favorite character out of the main four it would be Douglas not Carolyn. Oh well. I'll stick with Carolyn, I suppose.

Day Nine: Favourite female character in a drama show
Once again, show seems to imply TV and I just don't know. I'm not sure what the last drama show was I watched regularly. I'm not even sure I can think of a running radio drama I follow as opposed to one-shots or miniseries kind of things. I suppose The West Wing was a drama, but I'm already planning to use my favorite female character from there on another question and I'm trying not to duplicate answers. Uh... I guess House counts as a drama and I watched all of it through season 6 on DVD a year or two ago. I like Lisa Cuddy on it pretty well. I'm not actually a huge fan of the House/Cuddy thing and preferred the earlier interactions between the two characters and preferred her character before they went down that road, but I suppose it was inevitable given the way American TV operates.
