This past Sunday was International Women’s Day (and also, my birthday which is almost as important). So for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday, we’re going to celebrate women. I realize that there’s absolutely no way to make a comprehensive list of awesome women and awesome female moments and relationships with just ten measly entries, so take this list as a jumping off point. This is a mere smattering of great characters and great shows, but it’s ten moments that have stuck with me: ten moments of women standing up for themselves, of women supporting other women, of women fighting for their families, and of women loving themselves. Enjoy the clips.
This month, Netflix released Spartacus via its watch-instantly feature. I’d been a little iffy on whether it was something I was interested in seeing. I’d heard a lot of good things, but I was definitely hesitant. On the one hand, I am a history buff so I do like period pieces. On the other hand, due to unfortunate circumstances, the show has a slightly rocky storytelling order which is something that can really bother me, not to mention seeing a man tortured by having his junk sliced off is something I definitely could do without. In the end, it was all the Agron and Nasir gif-sets on tumblr that eventually did me in.
So, I went to bed a 5am this morning because I had to finish season 2. This afternoon I got in the first few episodes of season 3. I’m thinking I should be finished by Saturday, though there’s a part of me that just wants to scream GO BIG OR GO HOME and just pull and all-nighter to knock out the last seven episodes.
