I’ll start with a confession:  I’ve been slacking on my Geek/Anglophile requirements and am just now getting into Dr. Who.  Yes, yes, years went by and instead of watching Dr. Who, I was watching Heroes instead.  Well, we all know which one of those really sucked.

Back to the point, though, as of last week’s State-side launch of Season 5, I have a very good reason to watch every episode from here out:  Amy Pond, as played by fantastic ginger Karen Gillian.

  • Pretty
  • Scottish Accent
  • and in a Sci-Fi series

Wholly crap, someone unlocked the secret “make Ryan have a crush on this girl” formula without me knowing it.

Plus she’s well funny:

All in all, anyone else noticing the trend of smokin’ hot gingers?
Alison Dennisof, Christina Hendricks, sometimes Laura Linney or Julianne Moore…I know I’m forgetting some here.

Watch out brunettes, someone’s making a play for top spot.

So, I was tooling around on Yahoo earlier and came across a feature about “TV’s Top Single Gals”. While I hadn’t thought about this previously, I do find it remarkable on a socioeconomic scale that there are a considerable number of TV shows with single-women as the main character, and consider it a vastly welcome change. My appreciation might also be enhanced by the photos that accompanied the feature and the way they reminded me of my nerd-crush on Tina Fey
