Syd (‘One Day at a Time’) probably just became my favourite character ever.

Ah, Syd. Quick disclaimer here: I did miss Josh from last year. The boy was a sweetheart, and exactly how One Day at a Time (ODAAT) writes really bloody well, he was the furthest thing from the stereotypical jock I was expecting. That aside, Elena (Isabella Gomez, who just gets more and more hysterical) starts …

Drug addiction and the stigma surrounding it.

We've had Root and Shaw from 'Person of Interest', Commander Lexa from 'The 100', the Danvers sisters from 'Supergirl', pretty much all of the women off 'Orphan Black' (have I mentioned how excellent Canadian television …
