Best Kick Ass Female Action Heroes on Tv (Open List)
Maybe it's the gay in me, but I love a strong female character that kicks ass. These are a few (TV live action only) that I would want watching my back in a knife fight. Who'd I miss?
- •Wonder WomanI mean come on. She was fighting for your rights, I'm her satin tights!
- •Buffy SummersI debated on using Faith Lehane on here instead because she kicks ass slightly more in my book but in the end I decided Buffy deserves to be on the list. But now I realize I can have both on the list! I make the rules!
- •Faith Lehane
- •Sydney BristowNo explanation needed. Sydney Bristow kicked ass.
- •Emma PeelThere'd be no Sydney Bristow without Mrs. Peel.
- •Sabrina DuncanThe smart one of Charlie's Angels. I liked her best.
- •Jaime SommersWhen I'm feeling particular sloggy on the treadmill at the end of my run, I mentally imagine myself as her and that gives me a little bit of extra push. (Did I type that for everyone to read? Please forget it if you ever meet me in person.)
- •Starbuck (Kara Thrace)I'm the poorly remade Bionic Woman show that aired in 2007, Katee Sackoff appeared as the evil Bionic Woman. Basically she was Starbuck. I was totally OK with that. In fact I think the show would have lasted longer had it been called The Evil Bionic Woman and had Katee as the lead.
- •Olivia DunhamThough I kind of liked her warmer alternative Fauxlivia character more.
- •Dana ScullyIf I included Olivia Dunham, I have to include her predecessor Dana. She has the best resting bitch face!
- •Agent 99I mean seriously. Does anyone think Maxwell Smart would be alive if it wasn't for his beautiful and whip smart partner?
- •Basically every clone in Orphan BlackHow can I choose? I love them all! Also, actor Tatiana Maslany, you are amazing.
- •River TamI'm not a hardcore browncoat and honestly River didn't really show her kickass-ness until the movie but I do love Summer Glau so she made this list.
- •XenaThough honestly it was hard for me to get past the cheese factor of Xena, I felt obligated to put her on this list.
