Here is a wonderful PBS documentary that aired on tv last night that I would love to have everyone here watch --> [link]
I am a child of the 80s and raised on cartoons, tv shows & films brought up in the documentary. I was one of those girls who felt the pitiful lack of strong female characters on tv to inspire me. It was amazing to watch the numbers of inspiring characters grow and grow. Captain Janeway is still my all time favorite at this point, I aspired to be like Dana Scully of the X-files(thought she was so cool and wanted to join the FBI), Sarah Conner with the shotgun, I loooooved that scene too! The only show they left out is Alias! In my opinion that was an amazing show! But I guess they couldn't get permission from the owners to show it in the documentary. I thought all of them were coolest thing!
