REASONS ELAINE BENES IS THE BEST FEMALE SITCOM CHARACTER OF ALL TIME
She was so very ahead of her time.
- •She steals the show from three brilliant, male, comedic actors. She can hang-with and overshadow the boys club that is Seinfeld (and comedies in general at times).
- •She was the female lead of a major sitcom without being blond or stupid.
- •She was the original Carrie Bradshaw when it comes to being the "modern woman" on TV, except she's smarter, funnier and sexier.
- •What that means is she was having sex just as much as the male leads but not feverishly looking for a LTR. Also openly discussed birth control, masturbation, the female orgasm, etc.
- •She was an independent woman.
- •She wasn't afraid to fight, yell, scream or offend anyone.
- •Someone asked her to pull off this outfit for like 5 years and she did it.
- •She wasn't whiney or bitchy within the group dynamic
- •But she doesn't let anyone get away with bullshit
- •She invented "dance like nobody's watching"
- •She rocked an insane head of hair
- •She remained friends with her ex and was super cool about it (LIKE MANY REAL LIFE WOMEN ARE).Though Jerry and Elaine totally end up together in my dreams.
- •She gets hotter with age.
