The Bechdel Test

According to Peppe the series "The Big Bang Theory" does not pass the Bechdel test...Now I have a ligitimate reason not to like it too much (not that I've watched a lot of it). Any TV-series you like that pass/does not pass the test? Feel free to recommend anything, we are thinking of looking for something new to watch togheter but not sure what to go for.  We don't watch any TV but we have followed the Monk series on DVD, I know my husband follows more series but I really can't be bothered. It has taken us about a year to go through all the seasons of Monk and it has suited me fine as there is no cliffhangers so I don't get immensly stressed about when to watch the next one. I realized that it only just passes the Bechdel test, probably not even all the episodes, but at least Nathalie and her daughter are having conversations every now and then. However, I'm not sure it counts if it's a mother-daughter conversation?


  1. Dexter :) The main-character is male, but his sister is awsome and lut. Guerda is fierce.
