Favorite Female Character:

Buffy. Do I really need to explain?

However, what I really love is that there are so many female characters to choose from. I mostly love 'em all at one point or another. The first episode I watched was Reptile Boy, and I remember thinking that Cordelia was really funny and interesting. I didn't watch the show again for 7 years or something, but that wasn't Cordy's fault.

When I finally got around to watching, I started with Season 2. Drusilla and Sheila in School Hard were both fresh and women that we don't get to see all that often. Sheila especially felt real to me in a way that pop culture rarely gets right. When I went back to the beginning, the opening scene with Darla in Welcome to the Hellmouth confirmed that I was in the right place. Since then, I've come to love sassy!Jenny, Joyce, Faith, vamp!Harmony, Tara, and a couple dozen other fantastic female characters. None of them are perfect, but that just makes them easier to love, IMO.
