More of the WD in 30 days

Continuing on with the WD in 30 days meme…

Favorite female character? Why?
Oh, dear. I’ve complained about this show’s handling of female characters quite often. Not that I don’t love it/them dearly, but it seems the ladies frequently get the short end of the stick when it comes to characterization.

Most of them aren’t clearly defined enough for me to pick out a solid favorite. I can discuss qualities I like in each of them (even Lori…sometimes), but I don’t really have a go-to girl in the cast yet. I do like what I see in Maggie and Carol, and yes, Michonne’s badassery is the stuff of legend…but I need to see a little more of Michonne as opposed to just the badass to really start to enjoy her. Happily it looks like she’s headed that way.

I do hold something of a grudge against Maggie for her actions in the second season. She was mad at Glenn about something (was it telling people about the barn? I honestly don’t remember) and she retaliated by…smashing an egg on his head.

Seriously? You’re in the middle of the zombie apocalypse and you get ticked off at your boyfriend so you pull that? I lost some respect for her that day.
