Today we will be paying tribute to some of the very best television ladies we have ever known! Even though some of these ladies have not been on the air for several year, there is just no way we could ever forget them and all of their stories. While the men of television have been just as memorable, we will leave them for a different quiz. Today is all about the ladies!
Does anyone here consider themselves to be somewhat of a television connoisseur? With so many different shows available to us these days, this is a title many of us have given ourselves. After all, binge-watching television has never been as easy as it is right now. Today we will be asking everyone how they feel about each of the lovely ladies we have watched over the years. Everyone will get the chance to vote on each one however they please, and once all of the questions have been answered, we will dish out the perfect movie star wifey to everyone! Sounds like a pretty good time, doesn't it? Make sure the remote has a fresh pair of batteries for this one!
Pam Beesly (The Office)
Here is a television lady we are thinking most will be familiar with. Having all 9 seasons of The Office on Netflix, has truly made it one of the most popular sitcoms ever. For the first few seasons, Pam was the receptionist at Dunder Mifflin. However, after making the risky decision to join Michael Scott at his new paper company, she has since been promoted. She is married to the ultimate prankster Jim Halpert, and they have two beautiful children together. Thoughts?
Daenerys Targaryen (Game of Thrones)
Daenerys Targaryen is arguably one of the most powerful characters in this series. Even though the show is full of powerful characters, Daenerys stands out amongst them. When she was younger, her brother would tell her she was just a good for nothing girl. However, now that he is gone, she has proven herself to be the opposite. She is the Mother of Dragons, the Breaker of Chains, and of course, the rightful heir to the throne of Westeros. Thoughts?
Rachel Green (Friends)
Now here is one of the most legendary sitcom characters in the world. Rachel Greene was one of the main characters on the popular series Friends. In episode 1, she arrived in New York City looking for her old friend Monica. We learned that she had just bailed on her wedding and was looking for a place to stay. She took a job as a waitress, and the rest was pretty much history. While we can't be sure, most fans assume she is now happily living with Ross and their daughter.
Lily Aldrin (How I Met Your Mother)
Lily Aldrin is a wife, mother, artist and kindergarten teacher. Lily always had a passion for art, though teaching was always how she paid her bills. She met her husband, Marshall, back when they were freshmen in college, and apart from one brief period, they have been by each other's side ever since. She and Marshall share one of the best television romances ever. They are totally in sync with each other, and can even communicate telepathically whenever necessary. Thoughts?
Donna Paulsen (Suits)
Donna Paulsen is the best darn assistant any lawyer could ever have. She has been the trusty assistant of Harvey Specter for years. She's had to push aside some of her own personal feelings for him, but she would gladly do whatever necessary to keep their working relationship alive and well. That being said, Donna does not hesitate to tell Harvey when he is in the wrong. In fact, she takes great pleasure in doing so! How do we feel about Donna?
Piper Chapman (Orange Is the New Black)
Piper Chapman seems to be a woman with a few different personalities. Because of this, it may be hard to decide how we actually feel about her. Before getting locked up, Piper was a happy girl planning for her wedding. After being sentenced to hard time though, we saw a whole different side of her. While locked up, Piper has managed to make many enemies. She has a knack for trouble and seems to think of herself as invincible. Thoughts on Piper?
Leslie Knope (Parks and Recreation)
Even though many may consider Leslie Knope to be a workaholic, she is still a woman who knows how to have a good time. Just because she finds government work to be the most fun activity ever, does not mean she doesn't also have other interests too. She is a huge fan of Harry Potter, she enjoys looking out for her best friend Anne, and nobody has ever been as invested in their hometown as Leslie is. Who here is a fan?
Penny Hofstadter (The Big Bang Theory)
When The Big Bang Theory first began, Penny was not a Hofstadter at all. She was a waitress who had just moved in next door to Leonard Hofstadter and his peculiar roommate. Even though Penny had virtually nothing in common with the boys across the hall, they wound up building a very close friendship. A few years later, Penny is now married to Leonard, and his strange roommate has become her very best friend in the world. Pick or pass?
Fiona Gallagher (Shameless)
Fiona Gallagher never really got to have a childhood. Since she was the eldest of six siblings, she wound up being the primary caregiver. Sure the responsibility should have fallen to their parents, but since they couldn't care less about the kids, Fiona was the lucky one who got the job. Living in a rough part of town, Fiona does whatever she can to make sure her family is safe and fed. It hasn't been easy, but what's a girl to do?
Amy Santiago (Brooklyn Nine-Nine)
Back in Season 1, Amy Santiago was a top-notch detective in Brooklyn. However, she has since been promoted, and is now one of the city's best Police Sergeants. Amy is a well-organized perfectionist type, but she still manages to relax enough to have a good time whenever it is appropriate. She is now married to detective Jake Peralta, who is very much her opposite. The two of them balance each other out perfectly, so many are hoping to see them last for the long haul.
Robin Scherbatsky (How I Met Your Mother)
During the first few seasons of the series, Robin was an aspiring news anchor. She was always able to land herself jobs on smaller networks, but she dreamed of working for one of the big stations some day. We watched as she attempted success in the news world, as well as in her personal life. She wound up marrying one of her best friends and even though it did not ultimately work out, we would guess that she has no regrets at all!
Guinevere Beck (You)
Guinevere Beck had a real knack for writing. Even though she wasn't great with her follow through, she did show a lot of promise. Sadly however, Back was also quite gullible. She made friends with the wrong people for the wrong reasons, and while she believed the stories everyone around her was telling, she was never quite able to believe in herself. This was her ultimate downfall. After falling for the charm of a local bookstore manager, Beck was lost for good ...
Rosa Diaz (Brooklyn Nine-Nine)
Here we have one of Brooklyn's finest. Rosa Diaz works as a detective. While she is a no nonsense kind of person herself, she does occasionally get a kick out of watching her colleagues play pranks on one another. She is also a very secretive person. Even after 6 seasons of her show, we are still not even sure if her name is actually Rosa Diaz or not. This is just one of the things that makes her such an excellent cop!
Sansa Stark (Game of Thrones)
Sansa Stark is just one of the fierce female characters from the series Game of Thrones. Back in seasons one, she was just a girl who dreamed of one day marrying a prince. Fast forward a few seasons, she is now Lady Stark of Winterfell. She has a band of soldiers who would fight for her no matter what the cost. She has survived many trials, but we all know she has many more to come in the final season.
Skyler White (Breaking Bad)
Skyler White was the wife of Walter White on the popular series Breaking Bad. At first, Skyler viewed her husband as a standup guy, who would work himself to the bone if it meant supplying for his family. However, by the end of the series, Skyler was more concerned about protecting herself and her family from the man she had once loved. Skyler was always a mother first and foremost, so when Walter started making dangerous decisions, she had no choice but to distance herself and her children.
Veronica Lodge (Riverdale)
Veronica Lodge from Riverdale is a little different than how some may remember her from the old comic books. In this series, Veronica is the new girl in town. Her mother had once lived in Riverdale, but left to marry a wealthy man and to raise Veronica. Now that Veronica's father has been locked away for some mysterious crimes, Veronica has returned to her mother's old home, and is now trying her best to figure out what her family's true intentions are. Thoughts?
Annie Landsberg (Maniac)
Annie Landsberg is a complex character played by the talented Emma Stone. In the series Maniac, Annie has a lot of trouble dealing with her various relationships. She struggles with the fact that she lost her sister a few years back, and blames herself for the incident. She dwells on this, along with the fact that her mother took off when she was just a child. All of these things combined have lead Annie down an uncertain path. Any thoughts?
Lindsay Bluth Fünke (Arrested Development)
Lindsay Bluth Fünke is just about the most shallow character to ever be written into a television series. To be fair, she was born into a family made up of nothing but shallow people, but still, Lindsay's actions do tend to shine through as the most superficial. She is a married woman and has one daughter. That being said, if a better or more glamorous life were to present itself, she would gladly leave her kid and her husband behind. Pick or pass?
Meredith Grey (Grey's Anatomy)
Here we have the leading lady of the hit medical drama Grey's Anatomy. For those unfamiliar, the entire 15 seasons have pretty much been based around this character. When her series began, she was just an intern, though these days she is the best general surgeon working in Seattle. She has hit many rough patches throughout the show, but she has always managed a pretty inspirational comeback. Most fans are just hoping she will be able to find true love for a second time.
Kate Austen (Lost)
During the first episode of Lost, we saw Kate along with all of the other characters get stranded on a mysterious island after their plane crash landed. While we slowly began to learn about each of the survivors, we discovered that Kate was actually a criminal who was on her way to sentencing when the plane went down. Even though that was her past, during her time on the Island, she proved herself to be brave, caring and very smart.
Emma Swan (Once Upon a Time)
Emma Swan grew up thinking she was alone and ordinary. She was raised in the foster system, and pretty much began making questionable choices as soon as she was old enough to go out on her own. All of that being said, once the son she had given up for adoption came to find her, she realised she wasn't alone in the world. Not only did she find herself a family, but she discovered many amazing powers she never knew she had.
Kara Zor-El (Supergirl)
Without the supersuit, she may just look like an ordinary girl, but there is actually nothing ordinary about this girl at all. Kara is from the planet Krypton. Before her home planet was lost, her parents sent her to Earth to not only survive, but to care for her young cousin as well. While things did not exactly go to plan, she has now found herself on Earth alongside her cousin Superman. With these two now among us, we are safer than we ever have been before!
Miriam Maisel (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel)
Miriam, or as she would prefer "Midge", was a woman from the 50s. When her show first began, it seemed like she had it all. A happy family, a beautiful home and a few hobbies that kept her busy. However, once her husband announced that he would be leaving Midge for his secretary, her perfect life spiraled out of control. Not to worry though, during an inevitable breakdown, Midge came across a secret talent for stand-up comedy she never knew she had!
Betty Draper (Mad Men)
Betty Draper grew up as part of a wealthy family. Once old enough, she jetted off to Europe to begin working as a model. She had the looks, the money and the charm to pull it off. After landing a few gigs, she took her work to Manhattan. That is where she met her husband Don. While their marriage started off as any other fairytale union, it was not long before Betty learned of all Don's secret relationships. What do we think?
Eleanor Shellstrop (The Good Place)
She may look like a kind lady, but looks can be deceiving. While she was still alive, Eleanor was the worst kind of person imaginable. She was rude, selfish, arrogant and the list just goes on and on. There really was no way she was ever going to be let into heaven on her own, so it makes sense that it was a clerical error that landed her there in the first place. That being said, she's going to have to put on a kind face if she doesn't want to get caught!
Dee Reynolds (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia)
Dee Reynolds works as a bartender at the bar her brother owns with a few of his buddies. These guys along with Dee, have all been hanging out since high school. Naturally, since Dee is the only woman in the crew, she gets singled out quite frequently. That being said, most of the time she does seem to have a sturdier head on her shoulders than the guys do. Even so, that really isn't saying much, since she too is kind of all over the place.
Cordelia Chase (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
Does everyone here remember Cordelia Chase? Her show has not been on the air for quite some time, but she would certainly be a hard character to forget. When Buffy the Vampire Slayer first began, Cordelia was a fellow student at Sunnydale High School. She was popular and all kinds of mean. However, when the monsters began popping up everywhere, she decided to befriend the only kids in school capable of keeping her safe. She's got a knack for survival, we will give her that!
Sheila Hammond (Santa Clarita Diet)
Here we have a very interesting television lady. When Sheila's story first began, she was an ordinary yet happy suburban mother and wife. However, after falling sick with a mysterious illness, she was changed forever. While she has retained all of her human memories and emotions, the rest of her is pretty much a zombie these days. With her emotions, she still loves her family very much, but the rest of her body is now driven by her thirst for, you know, zombie food.
Jessica Day (New Girl)
Jessica Day is a true sweetheart. She lives with three dudes in an apartment, and does a great job at keeping them in check. She teaches music to underprivileged children and she will bake cookies any opportunity she gets. She is a very quirky girl, which leads to her being misunderstood quite often, but she has enough good friends to keep her from ever being lonely. Most fans are still rooting for her to wind up with leading man Nick Miller.
Rebecca Pearson (This Is Us)
Even though Rebecca's show has not been on for 15 seasons like some of the others, we have still learned quite a bit about her from the seasons we do have. Since her show is set up by showing both flashbacks and present-day scenes, we know who she once was and who she is today. When she met her husband, they were just a couple of kids hopelessly in love with each other. After having three kids though, everything changed.
Maggie Greene (TWD)
Maggie Greene has one of the tougher realities of all the ladies we are looking at today. She grew up on a farm with a big family around her. Back then, she probably thought her whole life would be as peaceful as her childhood had been. After the zombie apocalypse hit though, her life like everyone else's, changed forever. That being said, she was still lucky enough to be able to find her true love in a world full of zombies.
Christina Yang (Grey's Anatomy)
If Meredith Grey were to be taken out of the equation, Christina Yang would be next in line for the role of main character on Grey's Anatomy. While she is no longer part of the series, back in the day she was one of the biggest stars on the show. She and Meredith were more than best friends, they were soul mates. They were there for each other through absolutely everything. Not only was she an excellent best friend, but she was a rockstar of a surgeon as well!
Michonne is a survivor of the zombie apocalypse. Before meeting the crew she is with now, she had spent a long time traveling alone. This just goes to prove how resourceful and skilled she really is. Even before she had the backup she has now, she was able to defend herself against all of the beasts roaming around. Now that she has, in fact, found a new family, she is pretty much unstoppable. Is anyone here a big fan of Michonne?
Lorelai Gilmore (Gilmore Girls)
Lorelai Gilmore is a woman who chose her own path in life. Her parents were wealthy socialites, but she just never really fit into that lifestyle. Once she found out she was pregnant, she decided to leave it all behind to raise her daughter on her own. She turned her back on all of her money, knowing she and her daughter would be better off. She took a job as a cleaning lady at a small inn, worked very hard, and is now the owner and operator of her very own business!
Kimmy Schmidt (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt)
Nobody in the world is more optimistic than Kimmy Schmidt. Even though she spent 15 years locked away inside of an underground bunker, she is still walking around with a bright and shiny attitude. She loves life and all of the wonderful possibilities it comes along with. It is true that she may be a little too trusting of some people, but Kimmy would rather trust everyone than spend her life worrying over what could happen. Who here is a fan of Kimmy?
Jessica Jones (Jessica Jones)
There is no denying that Jessica has gone through some really rough patches in her life. When she was a child, a car crash took both of her parents, but gave her superhuman abilities. This lead to her wanting to become a superhero. She would have made an excellent hero, but one encounter with a villain wound up changing everything for her. Now that she has given up her crime-fighting for good, she is instead working as a private investigator.
Elena Gilbert (The Vampire Diaries)
When Elena lost both of her parents at the age of 17, she figured that would be the hardest thing she would ever have to deal with. Little did she know, that accident was just the start of what was going to be the strangest year of her life. After the accident, Elena met the Salvatore brothers. Once starting up a relationship with one of them, Elena found herself caught in the middle of a supernatural war involving vampires and witches.
Claire Fraser (Outlander)
Where to start with Claire Fraser? It all depends on what year we want to look at first. After the second World War ended, Claire was reunited with her husband. It was a joyful time, but it did not last for long. While visiting Scotland with her husband, Claire was sent back in time to the year 1743. While it was not her plan, she wound up meeting and falling deeply in love with a Highlander. She was a woman torn between two eras and two men.
Mindy Lahiri (The Mindy Project)
Mindy Lahiri is a fairly impressive individual. While she has her quirks like the rest of us, she is also a fabulous doctor and fertility specialist. She is also the mother of a young boy. While her dating life has been filled with all kinds of ups and downs, she has always managed to put her son first. Many are still hoping she ends up with her son's father, but we can never be too sure with those two. What do we think?
Claire Dunphy (Modern Family)
Claire Dunphy is the "supermom" type. Her husband may be the one who goes to work every morning, but there is simply no denying that Claire is the one with the busier life. Not only does she care for their three children, but her husband is pretty much just an overgrown child himself who needs as much care as their actual kids do. She also goes out of her way to be part of every PTA activity possible. Pick or pass?
Alison DiLaurentis (Pretty Little Liars)
Alison is a true woman of mystery. Before she went missing, she was known as the "it girl" of her town. She had a close-knit group of friends, though she seemed to keep them around mainly for the purpose of controlling and manipulating them. Once she went missing, everyone grieved, but deep down it seemed like many were actually relieved. She was the kind of person who could make anyone feel special. This was a talent she mainly used for bad.
Blair Waldorf (Gossip Girl)
Blair Waldorf was once the star of the Upper East Side. Back when she was a high school student, she had the power to control just about everyone around her. This included her fellow students, her friends, and even most of her teachers. That being said, once she went out into the real world, she realized that not everyone wanted to deal with a high school mean girl. How does everyone here feel about good old Blair Waldorf? Pick or pass?
Monica Geller (Friends)
Monica Geller was one of the leading ladies throughout all 10 seasons of the show Friends. When the series first began, she was working as a chef and was very much single. Throughout the series, she developed her cooking skills and wound up working as the Head Chef for a few top-rated restaurants. We did see her date many different men, but none of them stuck until she got with her best friend Chandler Bing. Once together, neither of them ever looked back.
Betty Cooper (Riverdale)
There was a time when Betty would have done anything to prove herself as the perfect daughter and student. However, those days are long behind her now. After making friends with new girl Veronica Lodge and starting up a relationship with Jughead Jones, Betty's entire life turned upside down. She stopped caring about being perfect all of the time, and started looking into more important things. As it turns out, Betty actually has a real knack for catching bad guys.
Vanya Hargreeves (The Umbrella Academy)
Vanya Hargreeves was adopted as a baby just like her 6 other siblings. Their adoptive father had known there was something special about the babies he had taken in, and forced them all to discover their hidden talents at a young age. While Vanya's siblings spent their childhoods training and developing their superpowers, Vanya was left as the odd one out. She was told she had no powers and was as ordinary as a person could be. It wasn't until she was older that she learned the truth.
Rachel Berry (Glee)
Even though Rachel Berry was not the most popular girl in her high school, it would have been hard to deny that she was the most talented one there. Rachel was born with a voice meant for Broadway. She had a passion for singing and acting, and she was amazing at both. However, in high school it can be easy to get distracted by things like boys and popularity. Even so, Rachel always knew what her dreams were and she was willing to fight for them!
Penelope Garcia (Criminal Minds)
Penelope Garcia is one tough cookie, even though she may not look it. She always had a knack for computers, but it wasn't until she was in school learning about them, that she fully understood the extent of her cyber abilities. After using her powers for some tricky business, she was noticed by the FBI. Not wanting to serve hard time, Penelope accepted a job as a computer hacker for the FBI themselves. Now she is a total force to be reckoned with!
Liz Lemon (30 Rock)
To know the answer to this question, we must first ask ourselves how we feel about Tina Fey herself. Tina has admitted that her character Liz Lemon is largely based off of her real-life self. They both work as writers for a sketch comedy show, and they've both had to learn how to cope with juggling many big personalities at one time. Both ladies are chock full of quirks and charm, so it will be interesting to see how everyone votes on this one!
Lisa Cuddy (House)
Lisa Cuddy is one smart lady! For the first several seasons of the show House, she was the Dean of Medicine and Chief Hospital Administrator of Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital. This meant that she was not only a very brilliant doctor, but her administrative skills were also unparalleled. While she took great pride in her work, she did find it difficult to deal with Dr. House on many occasions. Even though he was difficult, she let him get away with a lot just out of respect for his talents.
Berta (Two and a Half Men)
Does everyone here remember Berta? She was the housekeeper on the show Two and a Half Men. Even though her title was in fact "housekeeper", we saw her do very little cleaning during her time on the show. While she kept the house in livable shape, she was around more to help keep the boys in line. She was a fan of tough love, and a giver of excellent life advice. How does everyone here feel about Berta? Pick or pass?
