Speaking of Maggie Q, she wasn't kidding about the show pulling out all the stops for this season. (I suspect they may have also had a slightly higher-per-ep budget than in the past. If nothing else, they made it look like they did.)

 Know what's cool?  Amazon having decent prices on a lot of new/still airing TV shows with female (often in multiples) leads that not enough people are watching.  (What's not cool is having to remind myself that no, I actually DON'T have a lot of money to spare, most of what looks like fun money in my account is for WisCon.)

Season 1 of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries for $26.94.  1920s flapper runs around solving mysteries and flirting with stoic detective.  Exceptionally fun, and i think the only show I've seen in which the heroine is promiscuous for no reason other than that SHE LIKES SEX (no angst or self-punishment or any such) and with an ongoing romance plot where the female half of the equation regularly hooks up with other men without once being judged by the dude or the text, or showing us her sexlife through his POV.  Also, hats and adorable sidekicks galore.

Call the Midwife Season 1 for $22.86.  1950s London, midwives who work out of a convent.  Based on the memoirs of Jennifer Worth (which are also a good read).  Sometimes lovely fluff, sometimes whimsical, sometimes utterly depressing, there's a large variety of personality types between the midwives and the nuns both, and tons of focus on women's relationships and the  changing world.

Parks and Recreation Season 1 for $11.49.  Presumably well known enough that I don't need to explain much?  Hilarious and sometimes awkward adventures of a small town civil servant who aspires to be president and make all women in the government ever proud.  Equally hilarious friends and coworkers galore.

Pretty Little Liars Season 1 for $14.96.  Take a Chrisopher Pike book, update it a bit, and then make it all about 4   BFFs trying to solve the murder of their friend, passing the Bechdel test in about 4 out of 5 scenes, while also having a ton of focus on their relationships with each other and their mothers, lots of gothic imagery, and just all around cracky and sometimes cheesy awesomeness.  Oh, and one is a lesbian WOC who gets a lot of action.

The Bletchley Circle for $15.59.  3-part miniseries (which will hopefully eventually have a second season?) about 4 women who were Bletchley Park codebreakers who reunite in the 50s to catch a serial killer.  A bit too devoted to the procedural aspect for me at times, but rather fabulous and a good look at what it was like to go back to being "ordinary" women after the war, especially if you did awesome stuff you can never tell anyone about.  Also, if you ever went "how would people treat Sherlock Holmes if he were a woman?" well, its a few decades later and Susan has considerably better people skills, but this is the closest to a direct take I've seen on that.

Continuum Season 1 for $26.14.  Time travelling cop saving the future from time travelling terrorists!  It has something of a bad habit of focusing more on the male supporting characters than the female, but most characters are interesting in their own right, and Kiera's awesomeness makes up for the rest.

Body of Proof Season 1 for $15.63.  Like Bones, something of a "female Sherlock Holmes" protagonist, with the brilliance largely focused on one medical field.  And, aside from Bones, the only case of a "genius/wrangler" setup where the wildcard genius is the female lead.  Protagonist is a former brain surgeon who can no longer practice due to injuries sustained in a car crash, and now works as a medical examiner and solves crime.  Adorable partners and coworkers galore.

Nikita Season 1 for $16.93.  Best known series in the list?  Unbelievably awesome ex-assassin working to bring down evil organization and save friends.  What  makes Nikita herself extra-awesome is that someone decided to take the trope of the damaged, stone-cold badass assassin on a mission and ditch the "stone-cold" part and create a character who, despite all the angst and traumatic background and badassery, is a warm and caring person who always sees the good in people and inspires loyalty as much for her warmth and determination to help you as for her badassery and drive.  Other great assassins and ex-assassins and soldiers and evil psychologists galore.

The Good Wife Season 1 for $25.55.  I've only seen the first 4 episodes of this so far and so can't say a lot about the series as a whole, but what I've seen I've liked a lot, despite early reservations about the premise.

Honorable mention:

The Hour Series 1 for $26.34.  Honourable mention because the technical main character is a dude.  (Who is quite annoying in the first season, but I found him more likable in the second.)  If you ever thought you might like Mad Men, but wished there was more focus on the female characters and that the men were less douchey, you'd probably like this.  Despite my description, this really isn't "BBC trying to have their own Mad Men," which it often gets described as (though the first episode does have something of a "wants to be Mad Men" feel to it).  I'm sure MM was something of an inspiration, but its less about nostalgia and deconstructing nostalgia, and more of a cold war-like thriller from the POV of journalists, many of whom are struggling with their assigned roles, and the creation of a new form of news programming.  Fair warning:  Series 2 was made with the belief that a third series was in the bag, and ends with a cliffhanger, and then BBC went and cancelled it.

The Secret of Crickley Hall: 3 part BBC miniseries based on a novel by James Herbert. Rather excellent gothic horror, even if most of the elements were fairly standard. Parents and their two daughters move to big house in the countryside a year after their son goes missing, house just happens to be the site where refugee children drowned in the cellar in WW2. Very creepy and spooky, interesting mysteries, lots of women of various ages and types Doing Things. Very much recommended if you like the ghosts/haunted house/gothic variety of horror, but a strong warning for child abuse, as the hosts of the refugee children were abusive. The majority of the abuse is offscreen, but it's pretty central to the plot.

Vincent, why do you have chains in your shower? Or are they JT's? Still loving all things buddycops, and I enjoy this week's Dude In Distress bit.

The Paradise Series 1: Based on a book by Emile Zola and altered to be British, The Paradise is set in a Victorian department store (though the series sometimes has more of an Edwardian feel) of the same name, focusing on a shopgirl, Denise, and her employer, Moray. For a large chunk of the series, the focus is divided between Denise and the other women who work in Lady's Wear and Denise learning about business (in the first episode, she tells one of her roommates, Pauline, that contrary to Pauline's beliefs, she doesn't have a crush on Moray, but rather, that dhe wants to become her own version of him. True at the time, and I wish they'd stuck with that as the driving force of her arc so that I could have daydreams of her leaving and starting her own successful business and poaching the other women in Lady's Wear when she did.) and Moray's plan for expansion and ambitions, as well as his courtship of Katherine (probably the most complex and interesting character in the series), an aristocrat with an influential (and rich) father whose support Moray is after. I'm not a big fan of Moray and the latter episodes are (IMO) bogged down by a romance that doesn't feel necessary, but it was pretty good and should satisfy most peoples fashion and ,female interaction/relationships needs, and the setting is certainly different from other UK period dramas. A second series has been commissioned and I'm looking forward to it, though I imagine it will be very different in a number of ways.

Arrow 1.3-1.4:

spoilers )

Beauty and the Beast 1.3-1.4: I feel I've watched all these mystery plots before in various other shows but I don't care because I just enjoy watching Catherine and Tess running around being buddycop and the show not feeling it has to bend over backwards to reassure us that they aren't lesbians. (Though, since the show appears determined to be all het all the way, I can't help but think they'd be better off doing Tess/Evan than trying to force a Vincent/Catherine/Evan triangle, because the Catherine/Evan thing mostly feels like the writers assume two people that pretty will HAVE to want to jump each other and so have other characters assuming the same when the characters...don't come across that way, really.) These episodes seemed to devote a lot of time to Vincent making up his mind, which is ok since it had a bunch of Government Conspiracy stuff going with it, but I can only take so much "I must hide from the world so no one will see me! But I'll leave the pretty cop notes and run out to save people every 5 minutes BUT NONE MUST KNOW I EXIST!" and am ready to get back to Catherine and her official and unoffical buddycop adventures.

Elementary 1.5: I think I liked this mystery more than the earlier ones. They're definitely getting better at them. But I mostly liked learning more about Joan's past (even though we didn't learn as much as I thought we would) and being amusedc at Sherlock's less-than-secret obsession with it.

Nikita 3.2-3.3: Well, these episodes took care of the doubts the first episode of the season left me with, and could be summed up as "Nikita: the suprspy who saves other women, and her sidekick, the first girl she saved." Actually, 3.2 might be my favorite episode of the series so far, but it did play into a lot of excellent narrative tropes, and the writers appear to have watched Hanna between seasons.

spoilers )

Once Upon A Time 2.5: Much better than last week, but that wouldn't be hard to achieve in my book.

Tspoilers )


Person of Interest 2.5: The first half of this episode was absolutely hilarious. In general, the series seems to not be taking itself quite as seriously as it did in the first season, and I think it's stronger for it. I had actually forgotten that there were dangling threads for the ongoing plotline this episode went back to, but that's ok. It's always good to see Zoe Morgan, even for that little amount of screentime, and I think this was Gloria Votsis auditioning for Lois Lane. Hopefully she'll be in more episodes, since White Collar seems to have written her out.

Revolution 1.6: I don't know who thought a promo that went "Will Charlie be forced to prostitute herself to save her friend? MEN WILL DISCUSS IT AND DECIDE." was more interesting than the actual plot of the episode, but whoever it was really should not be left in charge of promoting shows again.
spoilers )

In non-currently-airing US TV news, I've watched season 3 of Warehouse 13 and it was its normal campy delight and had some interesting changes and developments (only somewhat marred by the horrific decision to give Joanne Kelly straight hair. Not that it actually hurt the character or her looks or anything, but sometimes I get attached to character/actor hair, and in this case, Joanne Kelly with straight hair is just wrong.) until the last couple episodes, in which in all became Gloom and Angst and Drama and I was pretty much sitting here going "......whhhhyyyyyy....." and then the DVDs ended with a Christmas Special that appears to be set during the first season (maybe early in the second) in which Harry Dresden is being stalked by Santa, and so at least the DVDs ended on a happier note, even if the season didn't. I'm also 9 episodes into season 4 of Fringe and I was really really enjoying the new status quo (especially the changes to Olivia and Nina's relationship, even if they still had few scenes together) and hoping it'd be like Eureka and make the radical change permanent, but apparently changing things back to the way they were before is the main goal of the season. Also, why can't Olivia have a partner without developing a romantic interest in them? (Or even just a partner who isn't a white male close to her in age and with a compatible sexual orientation.)

Arrow 1.2: So, Oliver appears to have spent a good chunk of the last 5 years practicing his delivery of "YOU HAVE FAILED THIS CITY." No, really, he seems very proud of it.

I'm going to watch every week hoping that the new episode will be the one where Laurel starts to become Black Canary, even though I know it will be futile for quite some time.

spoilers )

Beauty and the Beast 1.2: This episode was about 10% angsty manpain, 10% sisterly bonding and 80% WOC buddycops. I approve of this ratio, though could do less with the angsty manpain if Vincent is going to be setting off my "creepy no" meter like a lot of his scenes this episode did. Vincent, I liked you better in the pilot, where you were bland but nice, and not setting off my stalker alert in a way that I might have to take seriously, as opposed to "oh, CW...". (Right now I feel like their relationship is Vincent going "I pine for your purity but we cannot be but I will stalk you for your protection and tell you to avoid me!" and Catherine going "You will lead me to my mother's killer! You will be very useful and I will not let you escape helping me! Oh, and you got I really bad deal so I feel pretty bad for you.") Also, I'm glad this show is giving Kristen Kreuk lots of action scenes.

Covert Affairs 3.11: That was certainly a short midseason hiatus. What was that, 3 weeks? 4?

spoilers )
Nikita 3.1: This episode had a lot of really high points, but opened on a sour note by having Ryan do the intro narration? WTF? THAT'S NIKITA'S JOB. Never got over the WTF there, and both the beginning and ending of the episode made me feel like the writers are more interested in Ryan's troubles and struggle than the rest of Team Nikita, including Nikita herself, and I don't like that feeling. (If I want a show focusing on the struggled of an intelligent educated white dude adjusting to a stressful new job and responsibilities, I have a few dozen other options.) But what it does right it still does right, I just hope the current direction doesn't overtake everything that was good in the first two seasons.

Avatar: The Legend of Korra 1.6-1.7: Pretty good episodes. Pretty sure I'm in the minority regarding Tahno (don't care for him) but I lie the overall plot more and moreand how Amon is legitimately creepy and scary. Love all the flashbacks to the characters from the first series as adults, and hope we get more of those.

spoilers )

The Borgias
2.5-2.7: Can we just have Lucrezia, Giulia and Vannozza running around, manipulating the cardinals and doing good deeds with a side of wrapping everyone ever arond their fingers? Because aside from every episode needing lots of Caterina Sforza (though not at the expense of Giulia, thankyouverymuch) that's all that's going on that really interests me right now, though I still largely enjoy all the rest. Also, while Cesare is still a homicidal sociopath, I find it interesting that his less appealing traits and less appealing/successful ventures (both known and believed) are being transferred to Juan. TBH, while the first season deviated from history a fair bit, it still seemed to be trying to stay somewhat true to it, but this season is being a lot more liberal in that regard.

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries 1.12-1.13: Not sure if this is the end of the season or the end of the series. I believe this is actually my first Australian TV series, so I'm not sure how these things go there. I was worried for a bit that episode 12 was going to go an unfortunate ableist route (it didn't, in the end) and I'm not sure what I think of Foyle's motivation, but I thought this was a pretty good ending to a very enjoyable series in which I pretty much adore the lead and her posse of friends, family and associates (including her 2 henchmen whose names I can never remember). I particularly like how well it manages to balance being adorable and fluffy while handling (and being) legitimately dark and angsty in it's subject matter. If there is more (*crosses fingers*) I hope Jack learns not to leave Hugh unsupervised if there's a chance Phryne might show up, because that boy has no defenses whatsoever when it comes to her devious schemes.

Missing 1.9-1.10: Played out about as expected. On the surface, it has the needed emotional payoff, but you see all the things that weren't addressed or start falling apart once you scratch it. Honestly, though, while this wasn't necessarily good, I enjoyed it a lot and am sad it wasn't be renewed, though I understand they're trying to sell it to another network. I hope they succeed, being I like having Ashley Judd being bossy and unrealistically badass on my screen.

Nikita 2.22-2.23: Much better ending than the first season (the last quarter of season 1 and roughly the first half of this season, I was mostly watching for Maggie Q shooting things and Amanda being evil, but it went back to being the show I wanted it to be in the second half.) I'm sure people will complain about the ending being predictable, but whatever. Looking forward to season 3.

Lost Girl 2.22:

spoilers )
Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries 1.6: This one was really fun! I mean, they've all been fun, but this one especially. Though, I apparently love theatre ghost and 20~ year old mystery plots? Though I think I've mostly encountered those in movies and shows, not books. I was a bit iffy on the B-plot and its "We'll have Chinese characters! Naturally we will imply that they're opium dealers!" but I think the show did avoid the worst of that stereotype by the end. Also, it let Phryne have another random fling. (I'm watching 2 shows in which the heroine is regularly allowed to have sexual relations with people other than a regular significant other on any level resembling what an endless string of male leads have and without a hint of narrative shame or punishment. One is a show about a bisexual succubus and it seems to be trying to singlehandedly level out that playing field. The other is this show.) I continue to be greatly amused by Phryne's trying to "help" Hugh with his courtship of Dot.

ep 1.7: This one was kind of dull. I was excited early on when it started having Phryne's backstory and it was scandalous and bohemian, but I ended up not caring for here it went and the episode overall was rather dull. Hopefully the next episode will go back to the fun of early episodes.

Missing 1.1-1.4: Missing is about Becca Winstone ,a CIA operative who retired 10 years ago who goes to Italy when her son goes missing and discovers CONSPIRACIES and DANGER and promptly revelas herself to be absurdly, superhumanly badass on John Reese levels. I'm waiting for a scene where she walks into a bar full of armed thugs and walks out without a scratch. I kid you not. it's basically about her being hardcore and badass and making everyone (well, all the men...we could use more women in prominient roles instead of supporting) dance to her tune through sheer willpower. The first 2 episodes have an annoying number of comments about how she's nicer and mellower now that she's a mother, which would be rather annoying even without the fact that they haven't seen her in 20~ years and a decade of retirement. I don't know about you, but I assume a lot of things can change a person in 20 years besides giving birth. Thankfully, those comments evaporated in the 3rd and 4th episodes, and it's all fun and games from then on, and even the abducted son is considerably more endearing than I expected him to be. It's a rather absurd show and has lots other "time/technology/the human body doesn't work that way...you do remember you got shot and almost drowned 2 days ago, don't you?" but I'm finding that very hard to care about.
