NiceGirlsTV.com was born out of a desire to write about and discuss our favorite TV shows featuring strong female characters. Because we fall into the female 25-49 demo, we decided to indulge our girliness and be as pink and frilly as we wanted. But don’t worry, we won’t forget to bring the snark.
Meet The Nice Girls
Editor in Chief
Melissa is a Kansas native with a love of TV and the Internet, happily combined at NGTV. When she’s not in front of the TV or computer (or both!), she enjoys reading, cooking, scrapbooking, and traveling. Melissa is addicted to British period dramas, especially romantic fare from Jane Austen and Elizabeth Gaskell. Her current favorite shows include True Blood, The Mindy Project, The Good Wife, New Girl, The Goldbergs, Pretty Little Liars, and Once Upon a Time. A Marshmallow since 2004, she is eagerly awaiting the Veronica Mars movie. Contact her at email@example.com.
Liz is a wife and mother of three from the Chicago area who likes being able to discuss her favorite TV shows with adults sometimes. She is addicted to the Sookie Stackhouse novels and can’t wait for season 6 of the HBO series based on the books, True Blood. Her other favorite shows include Chuck, Grimm, Sleepy Hollow, Pretty Little Liars, Castle, Revolution, The Blacklist, Suits, Psych, Once Upon a Time, The Goldbergs, Revenge, and Scandal, just to name a few. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Using her favorite online handle, Rueben is an East Coast-bred gal who is now a permanent Californian and a lifelong tv-oholic. She watches at least 25 TV shows a week, goes to the movies as often as possible, listens to music every waking moment, reads every day and “plays” on the internet every chance she can. Some of her current favorite TV shows are Castle, Once Upon a Time, Revenge, Supernatural, NCIS, Doctor Who, Falling Skies, Witches of East End, Teen Wolf, Pretty Little Liars, Drop Dead Diva, Lost Girl, Arrow, When Calls the Heart, Switched at Birth, Sleepy Hollow, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Fosters (among others). She has loved the new summer dramas Outlander and Chasing Life ; and is also looking forward to the debuts of the new fall dramas Gotham, The Flash and State of Affairs. She loves to write about all things TV. Follow her @ruebenrambling on Twitter or contact her at email@example.com.
Louise lives in the Los Angeles area, and has been a long time California girl. Despite her better judgment, she enjoys shows about the shallow sides of her home city, but will also find time to watch Glee, Bones, Supernatural, Doctor Who, Weeds, Leverage and Mad Men. She also enjoys other science fiction shows on right now, as well as the occasional show about high school athletics. Having worked with children, she also follows shows she knows they watch (reminding her of those days for her in the process). Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Genevieve is our junior correspondent, representing the next generation of Nice Girls. She is a huge Chuck fan and is working on a script of her own for the show. Although her TV time is limited (thanks, mom!), she also enjoys Once Upon a Time, Psych, and Modern Family. With 8 younger siblings, she gets to watch a lot of “kid shows”, too. Currently in 8th grade, her other interests include volleyball, basketball, track, playing clarinet in the school band, and not doing her math homework. Contact her at email@example.com.
Cay lives in the Boston metro area and admits to being a long-standing “pop culture junkie”. Her favorite shows are Chuck, Bones, 30 Rock, Person of Interest, and Ringer. Previous obsessions included Alias, Lost and The X-Files. Cay’s coworkers find it hard to believe her insistence that she watches less than an hour of TV a night because she always seems to know what’s going on no matter what show they are talking about. Her family just thinks that she’s “special”. In the hours that she’s not watching TV, Cay can be found reading Entertainment Weekly, cooking, or participating in any one of many outdoor activities. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lisa lives in Atlanta and is our southern connection to all things Hollywood South. She is an Actor who is always out and about. She loves to read, dance and have a good time with friends. Her favorite shows include True Blood, Modern Family, The Vampire Diaries, Revenge, Drop Dead Diva, The Walking Dead, Nurse Jackie, Being Human (USA version), The Big C, House of Lies, Switched at Birth, Game of Thrones, and Grimm. Follow her on Twitter @Lisa_NGTV or contact her at email@example.com.
Rae is a correspondent for special events when we need additional coverage. Something of a news junkie, she does turn it off occasionally to watch various British miniseries on DVD and has become hooked on Chuck and Psych thanks to other Nice Girls’ recommendations. Other favorites include Leverage, Nikita, The Good Wife, and Drop Dead Diva. Rae lives in the Kansas City metro area and spends most of her free time with her husband and 11 (and counting!) grandchildren. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Karen lives in Northern VA, but she left her heart in Central California. When she’s not queuing up a TV show playlist on her media drive, she’s likely to be found gaming or reading. Her love of Comics, Sci-Fi, and Fantasy translates into her love of shows like Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead. Karen’s list of favorite shows also include Castle, Chuck, Fringe, Parks & Recreation, Community, Archer, Psych, Justified, and Misfits – just to name a few. Contact her at email@example.com.
Frea is a Midwestern writer and blogger with far too little time on her hands and far too many dogs (four at last count, though three of them are small). She’s an avid TV fan and an even bigger Fringe fan. A writer by day and a writer by night (…wait a second…), she spends hours of that time she doesn’t have concocting scenarios to torture imaginary people in her head. Sometimes she even gives them a happy ending. Her favorite TV shows include Gilmore Girls, Fringe, Chuck, Everwood, Castle, Body of Proof, and Downton Abbey. She can be found on her own blog at Castle Inanity or on Twitter. Drop by and say hi. She bites, but she’s had her shots. Contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mynda Bullock is the Creator of Digital Euphoria. Mynda describes herself as an extreme southern speaker, big hair believer, teller of tall tales, pop culture addict, and rabid Rutger Hauer fan. She is a fan of Almost Human, Being Human, Hannibal, Justified, Sherlock, Sons of Anarchy, Spartacus, The Good Wife, The Walking Dead, and True Blood. New shows on her radar include Black Sails, Helix, and True Detective. Follow Mynda on Twitter @PxlWvr.
