Girlcrush picspam/vidspam

Tech week is not the time for me to attempt thinky posts, even when inspired by misscam's recent meta on female characters or dsudis's new round of the simple-but-oh-so-satisfying "Fuck You, She's Awesome."

Therefore, in lieu of the thinky, I bring you imagey goodness of three women who currently make me happy by being on my TV.

Gina Holden: Still holding strong in the top girlcrush spot, even though I'm still waiting for somebody to give her a new character anywhere near as cool as Coreen Fennel.

I realize the girl who built a SuperSoaker flamethrower for a party is a tough act to follow, but come on, industry, get with the program!

Cute vid celebrating Coreen's ever-evolving hair.

Dale Arden didn't end up getting to be half as awesome as one might hope, but I still grin at the "OMGWTFRAYGUN???" expression in this still.

When this one turned up on the front page of her redesigned website, something about it made me think "updated Audrey Hepburn." A couple weeks later, I listened to a podcast interview where she was asked something if she could do a remake of something, what would it be, and she answered Breakfast at Tiffany's.

Shilling for FG in Monte Carlo.

There are many hardships one endures early in one's career. I would have to not include "snogging Jennifer Beals" on that list.

Dear Harper's Island, plz to be giving Shea more story kthx.

Mary McCormack: Sharing a given name with one's character must be weird, but in this case more than worth it. Inspector Mary Shannon of the U.S. Marshal Service is the current exemplar of my favorite flavor of TV heroine, with a heart of gold, will of iron, and tongue of snark.

Love the smile, covet the dress.

Miracle Laurie: It's not a Joss Whedon show without a crop of intriguing unknowns filling out the cast. Dollhouse has its share, but it's this one who stands out as a big-star-to-be.

I'm such a sucker for a nice moody B&W portrait.

Also for anyone who practices a traditional dance form.

And convinces her colleagues to try it in front of fans at a con.

Mary McCormack has been my TV girlfriend for years and years. :D I wish "In Plain Sight" were better written, but in lieu of that I'll just enjoy the eye candy.

I was vaguely aware of her, primarily as a stage actress, but hadn't watched anything she was in until now. And oh, the expressions I've been missing! I was even in raptures of glee over the promo where the guy was blundering through the various USA shows and walked into the middle of a firefight, and Mary just looked at him like "Yeah, well, this is what we do."

She spent several seasons on The West Wing flirting with CJ until the writers decided to hook her up with The Weasel. Ick.

I had stopped watching by then, so that's another reason to think it's just as well...

I absolutely ADORE Miracle Laurie on Dollhouse!!! She is my favorite character on it. Which probably means I shold expect her to get killed off. :(

Her MySpace profile says she's in the rest of the season. :-)
