Nice conversation. I was actually hoping for a bit more of the feminism discussion that was advertised. I think BSG and The Shield have very interesting things to say about feminism. I was particularly disappointed that The Shield was held up as a "masculine" show with no argument---to me it's almost a post-feminist show, in that the women in it are just people. They don't exist as the objects of male attention (like they do in Lost), and they're not written as men with boobs (like they are on The Wire). They have their own motivations and desires, some of which are recognizably those that women in their environment would have, but at the same time they aren't stereotypically "female".

BSG and Deadwood are also shows I think of as post-feminist, in that they have strong women characters who are both recognizably women and recognizably human, and not just tokens. I realize that women didn't have a great time of things in Deadwood's era, but I think part of the post-feminism of the show is that it recognizes that and still gives the women power.

But then I'm a dude, so despite the length of this comment, I'm not really qualified to say for sure. Those are just my twenty-five cents.

Lost is just way too low on the list
