Daily Heroine: Evie Garland

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Evie Ethel Garland (played by the lovely and exceptionally talented Maureen Flannigan) from the cult American sci-fi sit-com titled Out of this World, which was first broadcast in 1987. Boy, did I have a crush on Evie as a kid, After all, she’s cute, she’s clever and she’s kind. Oh, and her father is an alien, so she has special, superhuman powers too! How fantastic is that?πŸ˜† As for Out of this World in general, I think it’s a lot of fun. Nothing fancy, just a simple, good-natured light comedy, that never fails to give me a chuckle or too when I watch it. Unfortunately it has never had a complete DVD or Blu-ray release, and this is apparently due to legal issues. But maybe one day…? I can always dream!πŸ˜„

I’m always on the look out for new interesting and likeable heroines, so if you have a particular favourite, please tell me about her! Till tomorrow, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you.😊

Daily Heroine: Veronica Layton

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Veronica Layton (played by Jennifer O’Dell), the very attractive and athletic jungle girl from the American/Canadian/Australian TV series titled The Lost World, which was first broadcast in 1999, and which ran for three seasons. I only found out about The Lost World last year, when I came across it on Amazon Prime, so at this point I haven’t seen very many episodes of it, but it seems to be a fun, straightforward adventure series, and I’ve always been interested in classic pulp stories of this kind, especially ones that feature scantily-clad jungle girls like Veronica.πŸ˜‹

Daily Heroine: Ta’Ra

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Ta’Ra (played by the beautiful Maryam d’Abo), from the American sci-fi crime drama Something Is Out There, which was first broadcast in 1988. Ta’Ra is an alien girl hunting down a murderous alien on Earth, with the aid of a human police officer named Jack Breslin (played by Joseph Cortese). I’ve always had a thing for β€œalien” girls (even though they usually look pretty much like Earth girls) and I guess that was the main reason I became interested in Something Is Out There, when it was on TV. Of course, the scene in which Ms d’Abo appears with only a towel draped over her body might also have been a factor. Incidentally, Ms d’Abo is probably best known for being the Bond girl in the 1987 Bond film, The Living Daylights.

Daily Heroine: Gay Ellis

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Lieutenant Gay Ellis (played by the gorgeous Gabrielle Drake) from UFO, a British sci-fi TV show from the 70s, created by the great Gerry Anderson (the creator of The Thunderbirds). She is a senior Moonbase operative in SHADO, a secret organisation employing countermeasures against mysterious aliens. As a kid, I was a big fan of The Thunderbirds, and also another Gerry Anderson TV show by the name of Space:1999. I liked them because they had really cool spaceships. UFO, on the other hand, is a bit lacking in that area (which may be why I hardly ever recall watching it growing up). But what it lacks in spaceships, it more than makes up for in lovely ladies. And in my opinion, Gay Ellis is the loveliest.πŸ˜„

Daily Heroine: Jaime Sommers

Today’s Daily Heroine is: Jaime Sommers (played by the stunning Lindsay Wagner), from the 70s American TV show The Bionic Woman. I only have vague memories of watching The Bionic Woman as a kid, but I recall it being a fun action show (much like it’s parent show, The Six Million Dollar Man, starring the very cool Lee Majors). So, when I found out just last week that The Bionic Woman is currently available to be streamed here in Australia, I decided to watch the first episode. My thoughts? Well, Jaime Sommers was as beautiful as I remembered, plus she is quite sweet and charming.πŸ˜„

Daily Heroine: Agent 99

So here she is, my first Daily Heroine: Agent 99, played by the lovely and talented Barbara Feldon. As I’m sure many of you would know, Agent 99 is the intelligent, brave and loyal spy from the 60s comedy Get Smart (which starred the extremely funny Don Adams as Maxwell Smart, Agent 86). Get Smart is my favourite live-action TV show of all time, so it follows that 99 is my favourite live-action TV heroine of all time.πŸ˜„

Happy Birthday Maureen Flannigan!

Today is December 30, the birthday of one of my biggest childhood crushes, Maureen Flannigan. And so, as I’ve done for several years now, I’ve drawn a picture of Ms Flannigan as Evie Garland from the 80s sitcom Out of this World. Like last year’s drawing, I imagined Out of this World as a Japanese Comic and I used the very first episode, where Evie learns the truth about her Dad, for inspiration. I simply adore Ms Flannigan’s hairstyles in this episode, especially this one. But I really do wonder… How many more years will it be before these drawings actually start looking like Evie?πŸ˜… Anyway, due to the fact that today, in my part of the world, it will be ridiculously hot (43Β°C!), this will most definitely be my final post for 2019. So until 2020, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
