The bad-ass black female character kick continues....
Was anyone else ticked that Cleopatra 2525 got canceled? It had so much potential; I grew to adore this show rather quickly. My main reason? You guessed it...the legendary Gina Torres's portrayal of Helen, a.k.a. "Hel", the trio's team leader.
They couldn't have picked a better woman (she even performs the show's theme song). I loved this character because once again, Gina Torres properly represented a woman of color in TV (too bad her show got canceled... again). In the short time this show was on, we got to know her character fairly well, so at least the writers weren't trying to shaft her. She was sexy, had awesome outfits, and wore cool hairstyles. And oh yeah, she kicked ass.
What did you guys think about Hel? How about the show overall? I'd love to read some fic about Hel.
