There are several ‘Annie Vs. Britta Debates’ on the internet. By Annie Vs. Britta debates, I mean take two female characters of any show and deciding who I would rather be in a relationship with. While this seems pitiful at first, you can’t help but have thought this about any show you watched. The choices includes personality, looks, attitude, etc. I read a cool article that brought up 10 cases that should be looked at here. Now I’ll admit that I haven’t seen all 10 of the shows, but I do have strong opinions on the ones I have seen. It’s also a reasonable excuse to post pictures of my favorite characters of some of my favorite tv shows at their best moments.
Check out my breakdown below. Minor Spoilers About.
Mad Men‘s Betty Draper (January Jones) vs. Megan Draper (Jessica Paré)
I don’t watch Mad Men and I’m even kind of upset that I read this article because it’s kind of a spoiler to the series. One of these women were Don Draper’s wives and the other replaced her. Regardless, not watching the show, it’s hard for me to have an opinion. But after Googling them, Megan Draper looks far sexier.
Winner: Megan Draper by dumb default
Game of Thrones‘ Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) vs. Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer)
Points for Dany:
Despite having Natalie Dormer as the header image, this debate is a no brainer in my book. Dany Targaryen is both awesomer in the book and in the television series. She tames dragons, had a Khal, and burned someone. Beautiful, strong, and dangerous? Hell yes. I could could totally be her Khal. Anyone wanna dress up as Khal Drogo and Dany with me? Scratch that, I don’t have the body structure for that…
Points for Margaery:
She wears an ice cream cone dress and tries to turn a gay man. She’s a little more awesome in the television series than the book, and people kinda call her a bit of a whore…Which might not necessarily be a bad thing….I will give that Natalie Dormer is definitely unique looking that would probably make my eyes for her before Dany…but in terms of personality and actions done…this one is a no brainer.
Winner: My Khaleesi, Dany by witch burning margins
The League‘s Jenny MacArthur (Katie Aselton) vs. Shivakamini Somakandarkram (Janina Gavankar)
I’ve heard this was a really funny series. And I truly do love most of what FX has to offer. I’m not a huge football fan, but I do recognize the cult following that has grown. Also Nick Kroll is absolutely hysterical. So I’m sorry I can’ judge these lovely ladies.
Happy Endings‘ Alex Kerkovich (Elisa Cuthbert) vs. Penny Hartz (Casey Wilson) vs. Jane Kerkovich (Eliza Coupe)
This is probably my favorite choice. Every character on Happy Endings is as bubbly as the last.
Points for Penny:
Very likely the most spontaneous and likable of the group. She has a healthy addiction to sex and is more than willing to bend over backwards for
the one anyone. She’s probably got the most flair and personality of the group and as Dave said, “She got them thaannggsss” [Dave and I are referring to her breasts].
Points for Alex:
Alex Kerkovich is spacey yet she’s adorable. She eats for two and most of her jokes rely on her inability to get any joke. Not my type. A pretty face, but I’d say Dave and I would both dodge a bullet by staying involved with this one.
Points for Jane:
It’s hard to judge what Jane would be like without Brad. I’d almost feel bad [like the article also said] that me being with Jane would break Jane and Brad up that might do way more bad than good. Jane is uptight and has a poor sense of humor, often pushing a joke well past its due and coming up with hilarious puns. Va-Jane-A and asking Penny, “did you puck?” is just one of the best puns I’ve ever heard and I fall head over heels for her every time.
Winner: Jane Williams for waking me up at 5:30
New Girl‘s Jess Day (Zooey Deschanel) vs. Cece Meyers (Hannah Simone)
Points for Cece:
Cece is a model. In all honesty that’s all she’s really got going for her. Her personality doesn’t really mesh well with Jess’s and she’s kinda insecure about a lot. She willingly tells Schmidt that being seen with him ashames her and I don’t really fly with that. But she is a model…
Points for Jess:
Jess has got a ton of personality. She’s ‘adorkable’ and very likely a real life representation of Zooey Deshanel in real life. Everyone loves a quirky girl, but would she really be a good relationship girl? She could get annoying, yes, but it seems to me like she would try very hard to keep things fresh, something I would definitely appreciate and reciprocate for a long term relationship.
Winner: Jess Day for awkward moments
True Blood‘s Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) vs. Eric Northman (Alexander Skarsgård)
I don’t watch True Blood. And it’s already hard enough to judge between two different characters on a show I haven’t seen, but the fact that it’s too dudes is harder.
Archer‘s Lana Kane (Aisha Tyler) vs. Cheryl Tunt (Judy Greer)
The only animated series worth truly debating on is definitely Archer. This isn’t a fetish thing, but it’s a rather interesting debate between two very different women.
Points for Cheryl Tunt:
Carol, for lack of a better word…is crazy. Like batshit crazy. But in a way, I’m kinda into the crazy a little bit. Maybe not Carol-crazy, but I feel as though we’d have a decent run before she gets bored of me or that I simply refuse choking her during…well maybe now this is getting super weird…
Points for Lana:
She’s exotically beautiful, a deadly assassin, but also has insecurity issues and apparently lumberjack hands. She carries dual pistols with her all the time and won’t hesitate to f*ck you up…Some men like this in a woman…I do not.
Winner: Cheryl Tunt [hesitantly] for crazy cartoon sex
Doctor Who‘s Rose Tyler (Billie Pipper) vs. Amy Pond (Karen Gillan)
I’m not a part of the Dr. Who cult following. So I’m not entirely sure who these people are. Therefore, cannot choose..
Justified‘s Ava Crowder (Joelle Carter) vs. Winona Hawkins (Natalie Zea)
Points for Winona:
Winona is simply beautiful. Like drop dead gorgeous. Working at a courthouse, she has got a great sense of business fashion and looks just as beautiful in a t-shirt. Unfortunately she gets Raylan into trouble all the time and can be a little bit stupid sometimes. But goddammit, if I don’t melt every time I hear her speak with that beautiful southern accent.
Points for Ava:
Ava is pretty dangerous. She’s a strong independent woman who has been shot and can hold her own when pitched against Kentucky’s worst. She’s also incredibly beautiful. Dangerous and beautiful, a powerful combination.
Winner: Winona Hawkins for being that damn beautiful
Community‘s Annie Edison (Alison Brie) vs. Britta Perry (Gillian Jacobs)
The pair that inspired this debate…although when it comes down to it, this decision was fairly easy for me.
Points for Annie Edison:
Annie Edison is indeed one of the most adorable people on this list hands down. She’s also the most highly sexualized. I’ve been a pro Annie Edison guy since Community first started. She’s over motivated, most ambitious and the book smartest in the group. She dresses incredibly preppy, hugging her figure with tiny sweatshirts and dresses. She’s also incredibly naive and has quite a bit of good faith in the worst of people. She’s done some of the most sexually obscure things in the group and is very .gif-able. Googling Annie Edison .gifs or Alison Brie .gifs, you’ll find yourself in a plethora of sites dedicated to such a thing.
Points for Britta Perry:
Britta Perry is weird, incompetent, and people use her name as a synonym for ‘screw up’. But there’s something just unorthodoxly adorable about her. Like the article said, her pronunciation of the word bagel [pronounced ‘baggle’] might have a lot to do with it. Her sense of fashion [which by now, you must know means something significant to me] consists of a wardrobe much more attractive to me: cardigans, jackets, and sweaters. Sure she’s got liberal rants that might be more annoying than funny, but it’s still hilarious to see her try to do something about it by knocking over trashcans and eating paper to prove a point. Eating paper….to prove a point…sounds like my kind of girl.
Winner: Britta Perry for baggles everywhere and the quote: “Me so Christmas, Me so Merry”
Let’s hear ya’lls opinion on the matter. Surely you’ve wondered some of these great questions yourselves.
