Tank Top Tuesday: Fall TV Edition

So fall TV is well under way so it’s time to take stock in how the new and returning shows are doing. Or, more accurately, it’s time to take stock of how the new and returning shows whose stars I could find pictures of in tank tops are doing. What? Just being honest. As always, I tend to gravitate toward the shows with strong and interesting female characters – lead characters preferably. And luckily there’s a good selection of shows to choose form this season. Oh, sorry, I was talking about the tank tops again. Shall we?

Lucy Liu, “Elementary”

Remember when I said Lucy is a painter? I wasn’t kidding. Also, I think I enjoy this show more than “Sherlock.” There, I said it.

Aubrey Plaza, “Parks & Recreation”

I’m so sad beautiful tropical fish Ann is moving to Bloomington. At least April is staying.

Chloe Bennet, “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

Beside Ming-Na Wen’s Agent Melinda May, Chloe’s hacktivist Skye has the most potential on the show. She’s no Buffy or Willow. And definitely no Faith. But, who knows, maybe she’ll grow on me.

Lyndie Greenwood, “Sleepy Hollow”

This has been the surprise of the season for me so far. It manages to be both funny and scary, and has a strong woman of color as co-lead. The only way this show could be more awesome is if the lead’s sister, played by Lyndie Greenwood, was also a series regular. Alas she is a guest star. Which makes me worry about the future status of her head. A lot.

A.J. Cook,” Criminal Minds”

I miss Prentiss. But thank heavens we still have JJ. Sweaty, sweaty, hot JJ.

Demi Lovato & Naya Rivera, “Glee”

I have mixed feelings about Dantana. But I sure didn’t like the weird Brittany bi-bashing that helped usher them in.

Malin Akerman, “Trophy Wife”

Alas, I haven’t watched past the pilot yet. Please don’t tell Sarah Haskins.

Sofia Vergara, “Modern Family”

I’m pretty excited for Cam and Mitchell’s wedding, but mostly because it hopefully means a lot more of Lily. She’s basically the best.

Lizzy Caplan, “Masters of Sex”

I’ve loved Lizzy since she made us all have a big lesbian crush on her in “Mean Girls.” I’m a little less sure how I feel about this new HBO series. The lesbian prostitute is my favorite so far.

EDIT: Goodness. Apologies for the wonkiness with this post. Looks like an old rewrite posted somehow. A copy editor, a copy editor, my kingdom for a copy editor.

Who hasn't "bashed" their ex when starting a new relationship? Just because we have mixed feelings about Brit (rather "you" have mixed feelings) doesn't mean Santana doesn't. Frankly she could have said more. Time to give up the ghost.

I think Masters of Sex is a Showtime series.

If only they'd buried all the others in coats we wouldn't mind so much that fat and gorgeous actress McCarthy barely peeps out of hers.

If only they had buried the others in never ending coats, then we wouldn’t mind so much that fat and gorgeous Melissa McCarthy barely peeps out of hers.

Wow, people are pretty harsh over a fun post! I'm so happy tv is back!!! There are these cute, adorable young lesbians coming about in the new show Betrayal, and I'm psyched to see their story play out. :)
