Are you ready to wow me with your recommendations? I am ready to be wowed.
Share your favorite comedic TV badass ladies whose characters are under 25 (at the time their show was on the air) in the comments. Make sure to include the show they were on. Assume I live under a rock and have never heard of any of these people. Here are a few to get us started:
Lucy Ricardo from I Love Lucy (I’m guessing that character was under 25 when the show started, please feel free to argue otherwise!)
Clarissa, from Clarissa Explains it All.
Penny, Bernadette and Amy Farrah Fowler from The Big Bang Theory.
Blossom, from Blossom.
Darlene Conner from Roseanne.
Reminder: Buffy and Willow from BtVS, Jane Lane from Daria, and Leslie Knope from Parks and Recreation are sadly ineligible because they were in the final four last year. In future brackets, these lovely women may be eligible again, but not this one.
I expect a few tough calls, like the women of Friends, where we’re not entirely sure of the character ages, but we’ll discuss it all out, like we do.
