Melanie McFarland: Characters Who Are More Like Me

Jeannie Yandel

If you've been anywhere near a TV, movie theater or the Internet, you'll likely recognize the following four names: Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda. They're the four main characters from the TV show "Sex And The City." And according to IMDb's television editor Melanie McFarland, those female character archetypes have been all over TV for years. But Melanie's found three female main characters this season who are a little weird, a little difficult to like — in short, a little bit more like actual women. Melanie tells KUOW's Jeannie Yandel about the main characters on NBC's "Prime Suspect," FOX's "New Girl" and MTV's "Awkward."
