The Real Women of TV: Feminist Icons of Current Television

Never has television been more exciting for female roles.  I have some problems concerning the theme of mentally unstable women who also happen to be badass at their jobs, like in Homeland.  The characters are seemingly complex due to the mental instability and anti-heroism, but I really don't think they are complex when it comes down to it.  May the days of anti-heroes be behind us, and let the real complexities commence, starting with shows like Orphan Black, Orange is the New Black, Parks and Recreation, Downton Abbey, Nashville, The White Queen, Major Crimes, Game of Thrones, and the recently debuted Masters of Sex.
