June, The Handmaid's Tale
"The Handmaid's Tale's reputation took a bit of a hit this year when critics slammed the bleaker aspects of the drama, wondering how anyone could continue to watch such a hopeless cast of characters. And while I agree with those critiques on some level, I'm all-in on June's continued fight against her oppressors to take care of those she loves, as well as Elisabeth Moss's powerhouse performance. The series is obviously painfully relevant given the current political climate, and though certain episodes left me in tears, it also never fails to light a fire in my belly; every scene is a reminder of how important it is for women to stick together, and to never let the bastards get you down."
