For the third and final installation, we have the following fandoms: Doctor Who, Battlestar Galactica, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Wonderfalls, The Education of Max Bickford, 30 Rock, Lost, and a bunch of books.  Also some music.  Oh, and a thing about Ripley.

And that's it!  Who's on your list that I missed?

26 awesome women )

Alright folks, I'll see you tomorrow with the third and final part!
shah_of_blah: (martha)
So here's the thing.  I'm not really into criticizing women (with a few exceptions).  There's far too much of that in the world, and I don't like to add to it.  Last week, I was reading this thing about some female characters in sci-fi, and it reminded me of the flowchart thingy that got linked all over the place a couple months ago.  Long story short, while I certainly see the value in speaking critically about the way women are written (and hell, I do it all the time) I feel it's detrimental to dismiss those women.  So I got the idea to do this post.  And I was going to post it on More Joy Day, which is today (Thursday) but I forgot and have only just remembered.  It will most likely not be Thursday anymore by the time I finish all the coding, so just know that I did start the post with a few minutes left in the day!  

Anyway, I have been waiting for the opportune moment to post the "30 Days of Awesome Women" meme.  All in one day.  Or maybe three.  That moment may have been a couple of hours ago, but points for effort. 

Behind the cut, you will find the first ten categories and LOTS of pictures.  Fandoms include: Battlestar Galactica, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, X-Files, Veronica Mars, Doctor Who, Dexter, Firefly, Community, Angel, 30 Rock, Parks and Recreation, Chuck, Wonderfalls, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Farscape, ...and I think that's all of them.  There will be more fandoms in the later parts.

Also I cheated and listed multiple characters for just about every category, so there are far more than ten women behind the cut.

22 awesome women )

Okay, that's all for now.  I'll be back with 11-20 tomorrow.  Probably.  And by "tomorrow" I really mean "later today" because it's not Thursday anymore.

In the meantime, feel free to chime in with other awesome women!

Day 12. An episode you’ve watched more than 5 times

Even as I type this, I am not sure what to say for it.  There are A LOT of episodes that I have watched more than 5 times.  Like almost every episode of Buffy, Firefly, and Wonderfalls.  I've already talked about Objects in Space, and my favorite episode of BtVS.  So here's an episode of BSG that I've seen more than 5 times (and I don't rewatch Battlestar a lot, so that's a feat).

Day 13. Favorite childhood show

Because I'm incapable of choosing between these two:


This combination probably makes me a strange person, but I loved them both for different reasons.  The Simpsons was a staple in my house.  My entire family watched this show religiously for most of my childhood.  The X-Files was just me and my dad, and I was a little bit in love with the show from ages 10-12, or something like that.  Then the show started to suck, and then it ended.  Also I discovered Buffy and didn't really have room for other obsessions.  But I still love you, X-Files!  Even if I haven't seen every single episode and don't know any of their titles anyway (except for 'Bad Blood' and 'Jose Chung's From Outer Space').

AKA I have BSG on the brain and time on my hands.  I was having a minor pilots panic attack yesterday, and in an effort to recover my zen I've made a random picspam of all Lee/Kara interaction in 4.5.  Also, [ profile] taragel  was lamenting the lack of L/K action on lj, and I will never again have the chance to post something bsg-related in which the outcome is unknown, so I figured I'd better come up with something before Friday.

All caps from GalacticaBBS.  Spoilers for all aired episodes.

The story so far: is too long and complicated for me to summarize.  You all know it anyway.  We’re picking up with them all being shellshocked about Earth and whatnot.
