I really don’t have any love for Arya (I know, I know, I am probably banned from P-Mag now :) and I still kind of want to BE Veronica Mars, so that was an easy decision.

I’m just glad my horse is still in this race because last year I think she disappeared quickly. But I don’t love anyone on TV as much as I <3 Lucy. Seriously. Forever. Comedy and women in comedy wouldn’t be the same today without her, and she is just as hilarious now as she was decades ago.


Echo on the other hand was probably one of the least interesting characters on her show. Actually, as interesting as I found Dollhouse, the lady characters failed to thrill me. Sierra and November’s back stories were basically both generic damaged woman. Wah Wah Wah.
