Mad Men Icon PNGMy name is Lucia (loo-CHEE-a), and I am addicted to television.  Heroine TV is a blog devoted to the quality programming which I love, particularly shows with strong female characters (said quality, and said strength is determined entirely by me, and is completely subjective).  If a show features chicks with superpowers, spies, vampire slayers, killer robots, time travel, magic, or bitchy brunette teen queens, I probably watch it. If it was created by Joss Whedon, I DEFINITELY watch it. I mostly blog about TV, but occasionally I reference other aspects of pop culture, such as movies, books, comics, etc. Sometimes I write live-blogs while watching a show, sometimes I write in-depth recaps, sometimes I just write quick summaries and reviews, and often I link to TV news that I find interesting.  I’m just one person, so I can’t post about everything that I watch, however, I have a point-of-view and I love to share it.

I began blogging on September 23rd, 2008, as a way to express my thoughts on my favorite shows, and to share interesting TV news with my sisters.  That way, I wouldn’t have to call them all the time to speechify, and instead they could check in with my blog for the latest updates.  I’m selfless, really.  A saint.  On July 28th, 2009, I moved the site from Live Journal to Word Press, where I am now very happy.  Previously, I figured only about seven people read my posts, but I have been pleasantly surprised to discover that’s not the case.

I love comments, so don’t be shy.

    Hi Lucia

    Two things

    1) I’d like your permission to (re)print your article on Mad Men for our website.

    2) I was hoping we could use your ‘scribing’ talent for our website.

    The best shows youre not watching . com

    Mad Men is one of our featured shows. We’re hoping to round up a few people who can occasionally contribute perspective (via an article/blog) on the shows – maybe a recent episode, future direction, plot shortcomings etc
    What’s in it for you?

    Primarily a larger audience back channeled to your blog. We don’t pay but the site has a lot of promise and we’re pretty excited about getting it off the ground. Let me know what you think.



    BTW, we LOVE your selections. J Whedon is amazing!

    Thanks! Yes, you may reprint my article! Can you link back to this site as well, at the bottom of the article (or something to that effect)? I’ve been blogging for almost a year now, but it wasn’t until I moved my site from LiveJournal to WordPress that I started getting traffic beyond my family 🙂 I would love to contribute to your site in the future, and plan on writing up a recap/ review for the Mad Men premiere, if that’s something you’d be interested in.

    Great blog Looch. I am clueless about these shows but your blog has a great look. Good job! Must be challenging to keep the blog up while you’re in a PhD program!

      Thanks for commenting Chandi! Yeah, I’ve sort of been on an illicit vacation from grad school, as I’m just sort of burnt out and disheartened with the program. Shouldn’t be spending time on this, but it’s just so fun.
