First of all, happy birthday Glenn!
Now that's out of the way, here is the first in my new series, Top Female Characters on TV. I have twelve of these, plus some extras and special mentions, and even a guest blogger! Exciting, yay!
I put up a poll on FaceBook about this, and I will talk about those results here, too.
Without further ado, here is number 12: Adele DeWitt (Dollhouse)
For the short-lived duration of Dollhouse, Adele was the epitome of awesome. She was a woman who was put in horrible situations and decided to say ‘no’ and fight for the good. This wasn’t the typical fighting for good like the other characters you will see on this list, but Adele did what she could with what she had. It’s obvious that the Dollhouse has changed what it was when Adele first joined, but by then it had gone too far. Or maybe she always had thoughts that it was going to go bad, but Adele has seen the bad that has happened and the worse that is to come and yet she continues to stand up with them if only to get the opportunity to stab them in the back. It was no revelation to me when it was revealed that Adele put Echo in the attic for a reason; I already knew that she was ‘good’ and doing everything she could to help out her dolls.
Adele DeWitt received no votes on my favourite female character in a TV series poll on FaceBook.
What do you think? Would Adele make your top twelve, or would she top it? Let me know in the comments, and keep checking in to see the rest on the list!
