My Leading Lady

Dr Mary Albright/Jane Curtin

In typical me style I pick the one human character as my favourite, I always like the outsider. I think the fact that she is different to the other is what makes her so great. She’s the one sane person who somehow ends up tangled in the middle of this chaotic family. Its so fun to watch her loosen up and start to embrace her fun side.

3rd Rock From The Sun

If I was asked directly I honestly don’t think I could explain what it is about this show I like, for some reason it just works. Its characters and overall plot line are bordering on ridiculous. But sometimes that’s what it takes to make a great show. Something that’s silly and fun and makes you smile and that’s exactly what the show achieves. A family of aliens attempting to integrate themselves into the human community, its not exactly a smooth journey but that’s what makes it such a joy to watch.

My Leading Lady

Rachel Green/Jennifer Aniston

From the beginning Rachel was always my favourite character. Im not sure what it is about her that I find so appealing. I do know that I think she’s beautiful and out of all the friends she is the one changed the most over the 10 years. Her journey took her from a selfish rich girl to a caring friend and mother. Perhaps its that which makes he stand out. The fact that she we got to see so many aspects of her personality.

I can’t believe its taken me this long to get around to Friends. it’s a timeless classic that’s great no matter how old you are or what mood your in. Its one of the shows I grew up watching, and will probably continue to watch for many years to come. This group of individuals has the kind of friendship we all want. They each have their own lives but no matter what they’re always there for one another. What so great about Friends is that there is at least one aspect of a character that everyone can relate to. I know me and my friends aren’t the only ones who each had a friends we were paired with. Its impossible not to become attached to them as you watch their lives progress, jobs, marriages and babies. We were with them every step of the way.

I also wanted to include this photo just because I love it.

My Leading Lady

Cybill Sherridan/Cybill Shepherd & Maryann Thrope/Christine Baranski

When it came to choosing my Leading lady I found it was impossible to choose between the two friends, in my opinion they complete one another, one without the other just isn’t quite the same. So I decided they both deserve a mention. In many aspects they are polar opposites; Maryanne is a rich high-society lady of leisure while Cybill is an out of work actress. Lets not forget their contrasting taste in fashion. Maryanne’s sense of style us classy and bold while Cybill’s… I think eclectic is probably the most appropriate word. Yet in other ways they are so similar. There devotion to one another is admirable as is their love of vodka.

From the first time I watched this show it became one of my favourites. Any show that can literally make me laugh out loud earns my respect. This show is rare in its feminist attitudes. That’s probably what I like about it. Each of that characters is unique in their personality and yet the meld together so well, lead by the lead Cybill, One of the relationships I like the most in the show is the friendship between Cybill and her rich, slightly crazy friend Maryanne. Their crazy antics make for fantastic viewing.

My Leading Lady

Barbara 'Barb' Baran/Wanda Skyes

It was inevitable really which character would make the final cut. Barb is one of a kind, her sharp sarcastic wit make her a comic star, and her devoted and honest friendship with Christine really helps make the show work. Of course the added bonus is that the actress who plays her is the one and only Wanda Sykes. That alone should be enough for you to worship her.

The New Adventures Of Old Christine

I only recently discovered this show and it didn’t take long for me to get hooked. You know you should but you cant help but adore the self-obsessed quirky Old Christine. Factor in the very dysfunctional family and you’ve got a laugh out loud show. It’s a fresh take on comedy which isn’t afraid to hit marks that other shows shy away from. It also managed to show new dimensions when it comes to age old relationships; the best friends, ex husband and even his new girlfriend. It also works together perfectly.
