Kicking Butt: Fall TV's Most Badass Female Characters

The fall TV season is finally upon us and in full swing, as most returning shows premiered their new seasons last week. And boy, is it ever a good time to be a woman in TV! There are a myriad of awesome, amazing, kick ass roles out there for us ladies and it seems to only be getting bigger and better. I thought it would be fun to highlight some of my favorite bad ass characters rocking the tube right now in current shows. In no particular order, other than as they came to me while writing:

Kalinda Sharma (The Good Wife): Kalinda is cooler than Batman. You know it, I know it and everyone in her universe knows it. She.is.the.best. Kalinda, the wily investigator for Lockhart /Gardner, gets it done – and in sexy boots and leather jackets (the essential bad ass costume). Everyone wants to be her, be with her or get out of her way. She’s not afraid to be sexy and often uses her sexual charms to her advantage for work. She’s also incredibly loyal, doing whatever necessary to protect her truest of friends, Alicia. Just don’t get near her when she’s got a bat. Or a sledgehammer. Seriously, I could go on for days, I love her so much. Just look at the bad assery!
