Perhaps a TV-watching hipster seems like an oxymoron; after all, part of being a hipster is eschewing the mainstream and doing things that are different. These TV shows hipsters love, however, show that sometimes TV can be just different enough.

 Some hipster TV shows feature characters who are themselves hipsters. Think of Jess Day from “New Girl” -- from the black-framed glasses to the clothes to her attitude, she’s the quintessential hipster TV character. Or consider Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein from “Portlandia,” who’ve portrayed characters that embody yet satirize the typical hipster: from a focus on eco-friendly life to arguments about who read it/saw it/heard it first, the pair is everything hipster. Hipster TV characters aren’t new, either. Remember Dobie Gillis? He was a hipster. Or, was he, like, a beatnik, man?

 Other TV shows hipsters love don’t have hipster characters, but they’re peripheral enough to be enjoyed ironically or specifically because they are uncool. This class of TV shows for hipsters includes both older shows, such as “Star Trek,” and ones that are still being produced, such as “Jeopardy.” Hipsters also enjoy TV shows meant for a younger audience -- it’s hard to deny the hipster appeal of “The Powerpuff Girls.”

 Whether viewers call themselves hipsters, these TV shows with hipster appeal range from comedy to drama to game show and everything in between. For extra hipster cred, be sure to watch them on an old black-and-white TV or on a MacBook.

<![CDATA[The Most Iconic Celebrity First Names]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/most-iconic-celebrity-first-names/carlybobarly What's in a name? For some famous folks, naming is everything. Here's a list of celebrities, actors, musicians, sports stars, and politicians who have one-of-a-kind real first names. In fact, these stars' names are so unique that you can't even really steal them for your own kids. Like, what, "This is my daughter, Madonna"? "Did you eat the last cookie, RuPaul"? No, if you give a child any of these iconic names, you are basically just naming him or her after a celebrity. Sorry, but there can be only one Beyoncé. 

What are the most unique celebrity names? This list only includes real given first names - no stage names or pseudonyms. Many listed are mononymous people who are known just by a single name, like Shakira, Kesha, and Prince. Others have well-known surnames, even if they don't need them, like Charlize Theron and Kanye West. Many of the names on this list are popular in other cultures or on other continents, but are not common in North America. Other names may be used by more than one famous person or even fictional character, but everyone knows who the true Elvis is (i.e. not Elvis Costello) and the true Cher (i.e. not Cher from Clueless). 

Anyway, these famous people names are the ones for whom you don't need clarification. You are never like, "Wait, which Tupac?" Vote up the ones that are so unique that you hope to never find out that a person you know has give their baby the same name.

<![CDATA[Characters Who Are Most Worthy Of Lifting Mjolnir]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/characters-who-are-most-worthy-of-lifting-mjolnir Not just anyone can lift Thor's hammer. Thanks to an enchantment by Odin, only one who is worthy is capable of wielding Mjolnir. While worthiness is rather subjective, it's no joke. Many physically strong beings have tried to heft it, but can't even get it to budge.

In the comics, there are a number of characters who have lifted the uru metal weapon. Some of them are in the main Marvel continuity. Some are from alternate continuities, what-ifs, or company crossovers. Based on what we know about Thor as a character in the comics, who do you think should be able to lift Mjolnir with no problem?

<![CDATA[The World's Most Inaccessible Places]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/inaccessible-places/kellen-perry There are plenty of places on the planet that are essentially inaccessible because of Mother Nature - remote islands, towering peaks, the deepest parts of the ocean - but man-made places that are inaccessible are a different breed.

Typically designed to either protect valuable goods (vaults, repositories) or protect the public from danger (bunkers, supermax prisons), what the hardest buildings in the world to break into all have in common is the remarkable human ingenuity behind their creation (how on earth do you design something that can deflect a nuclear bomb?). Here's a look at some of the most inaccessible places on the planet.

<![CDATA[The Worst Noises Your Neighbors Make]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/worst-noises-neighbors-make/jacob-shelton Unless you live in the woods or in an ice cave, you probably have to deal with a few very annoying neighbors. Some times they can be cool, but most of the time they’re just infuriating noise machines that make you want to live in a submarine at the bottom of the ocean. Case in point, the upstairs neighbor who has been vacuuming for a full hour, and probably doesn't even have carpet up there. Annoying neighbors and noisy neighbors can take on many forms. From the frat boys that can’t stop blasting EDM at 2 am, to the artsy fartsy types who work on their audition pieces long into the night, they’re all making far too much noise and driving most of their fellow tenants and neighborhood dwellers insane. If you’re not sure if your neighbor fits the criteria for being SUPER ANNOYING, then just check out this list of the worst noises your neighbors make and start taking notes.

To be fair, everyone has probably played the part of the annoying neighbor at one point in their life without even knowing it. Who among us hasn’t listened to Lady Gaga at full volume on a Wednesday night? The difference between us and all those annoying neighbors out there is that we know when to call it a day. So from up here on the high horse, we present to you this list of all the annoying sounds your neighbors love to make.

Vote up the most annoying noises that your neighbors make and all the worst neighbor pet peeves. If your neighbor's special annoying noise isn't listed, add it and then file a noise complaint.

Maybe someone who knows how to lead, be a good team member, or handle themselves in high stress situations. Celebrity role models for boys are not as hard to come by as you might think.

There’s the nice guy (Chris Pratt), the stand-up guy (Nick Offerman), and celebrities as role models so cool you want to hang out with them all the time guy, like Dave Grohl and Keanu Reeves. There are the obvious old timers like John Goodman and Jeff Bridges. There’s the nice playboy (George Clooney). And then there’s the king of the actor role models, everyman Bill Murray.

Sure, everyone has feet of clay and no one on this list of celebrity role models is perfect. They are, however, artist and actor role models who have managed to not completely set their lives on fire, or if they have, have weathered the storm and have insight to share.

<![CDATA[The Greatest American Novels]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-american-novels/ranker-books List of some of the best American novels from classic writers, like Nathaniel Hawthorne, to more modern names, like Stephen King, with room for the list to grow. There is an option to add your favorite American novels to the list if yours is not already on there.

The list asks the question, "What is the best American novel?" with novels from William Faulkner, Toni Morrison, Philip Roth and Nathaniel Hawthorne, plus many more that have written great American novels since then. More modern American novels are included, such as The Road by Cormac McCarthy and The Stand by Stephen King, which may be more familiar.
American novels can represent the spirit of the age in the United States during the time it was written or the time it was set in. The American novel is written by those who are knowledgeable about the state, culture and even the perspective of those during that time.

Some of these best American novels may have also been on the reading curriculum in school, like Uncle Tom's Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe, The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien or To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Be sure to vote not just on your favorite authors, but on your favorite novel of all time, as some authors may be listed twice for other novels that are considered the best.

<![CDATA[The Best Alcoholic Drinks for Summer Brunch]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-drinks-for-brunch/ranker-food What is the best way to start a beautiful summer day? With an alcoholic beverage right at your brunch table. These are the most delicious alcoholic drinks for brunch, ranked by drinkers who love brunch and drinking. When the warm summer sun calls you to come sit in it, nothing will help you forget your worries more quickly than a boozy beverage. Sunny days call for light, refreshing cocktails and flavorful beers. Which are the best to order for brunch?

You're up, you're dressed, you're at the restaurant on time, re-hashing your night / life with your pals. What alcoholic brunch drinks catch your eye on the menu? For the casual drinker, a lovely champagne mimosa or a seasonal summer ale might do the trick. How about a citrusy cocktail like a greyhound or even a margarita? Live a little! Best of all, almost any type of beer is great for brunch, from a light witbier or hefeweizen to a full-bodied stout. Whether you are getting a slice of grapefruit or a full English breakfast, there's a brunch drink that will perfectly complement your meal. Two or three drinks will guarantee a summer day you'll never forget.

<![CDATA[The Best Female Celebrity Role Models]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/female-celebrity-role-models/lisa-waugh Who are the top celebrity role models for girls? They're those famous females who encourage girls to be themselves and to stay true to their own thoughts and imaginations. They run their own world and make their own decisions. No one is perfect and celebrity role models for girls are certainly human. It’s because of this, not despite it, that artists and actress role models can best influence the badass women of tomorrow. This list aims to include both women who have always been positive role models, as well as those who have faced some tough times, scrutiny, and even scandal to come out on the other end even more successful and healthy than ever.

The older ladies on this list have been around the block and can give some real life on surviving the slings and arrows of life. Betty White is one of the most positive celebrity role models for girls because she’s been scandal-free, hardworking, hilarious, and still popular as she approaches a century.

Younger female actor role models can teach a master class on how to lead, too. Emma Watson is a UN ambassador and has been inspiring girls since her Hermione days. Her HeForShe campaign has put Watson on the world stage where she is happy to inspire and promote women. "My recent research has shown me that 'feminism' has become an unpopular word. Women are choosing not to identify as feminists ... Why has the word become such an unpopular one?” Why, indeed, Miss Watson.

P!nk, Ellen Degeneres, Leslie Jones, and Katharine Hepburn are examples of role models who inspire young girls to embrace both sides of their personalities. You can be a girly girl and then switch over to sports in a flash. You can be smart, nerdy, introverted, or a social butterfly. Just be yourself in all cases, according to these celebrity role modes for girls. In fact, Amy Poehler started an entire online community, Amy Poehler's Smart Girls, dedicated to this mission.

Who leads the pack of the top artist and actress role models? Who will stand the test of time as one of the most influential celebrity role models for girls? Upvote the female role models who inspire you the most or add any other Hollywood celebrities who are leading the way.

<![CDATA[The Best Small Towns in Television History]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-tv-small-towns/alexandra-plesa Oh, small towns: where everybody knows everybody, secrets eventually come out, and you always run into someone you know on your way to the grocery store. There’s no wonder so many TV shows are set in small towns – the setting brings characters closer and allows for charming exterior shots.

Plus, the best TV towns have the unique appeal of giving viewers the urge to leave the big city behind and retire to a quieter life. Maybe somewhere sunny, where attending town events is mandatory and locking your doors doesn’t always have to be on your to-do list.

However, not all small towns on television are safe and idyllic. Some are populated with supernatural creatures, while others lose tourism points due to their unusually high crime rate. And yet, viewers can’t help but imagine how it would be to live in a place where vampires throw the most epic parties and witches can totally bring you back to life if you lose your head along the way.

These are the best small towns in television history. Which one is your favorite?

For our purposes, this list includes some of the best female singles tennis players since the Open Era officially began in 1968. Some of these brilliant female tennis players have long since retired since winning countless major tournaments, but some continue to make headlines with their awesome skill on the court. Vote for the tennis playing women you believe are truly the best since the Open Era began, and vote down any that you don't think qualify. Also, feel free to rerank this list in any order you want. Debate about who is the greatest female tennis player of all time (Open Era or not) continues to this day, with some arguing that the honor goes to Steffi Graf, and others saying the title belongs to the incomparable Martina Navratilova. In their day, these two female tennis players were feared and revered by opponents, and with good reason. And certainly, no list of the best and greatest female tennis players of the Open Era would be complete without Serena Williams: She is arguably one of the, if not the absolute top current female tennis players in the world. Serena's sister, Venus Williams, also makes this list. If you're a tennis fan, you might also want to cast your vote (or rerank your own list of) the greatest male tennis players of the Open Era. Is Roger Federer the best, or should the honor go to Bjorn Borg? You decide, with your votes.

<![CDATA[The Best Deep Fried Foods]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/the-best-deep-fried-foods Deep-frying imparts tasty, crispy flavor to pretty much any food cooked with this process, and as a result, it appears that people will eat just about anything if it has been deep-fried. There are of course the standard fried foods that are so prevalent in fast food, such as French fries and fried chicken, but many cultures and cuisines enjoy deep fried vegetables, tofu and even insects. A somewhat disturbing trend which has also grown in popularity is that of deep frying junk food, including cookies, candy bars and processed pastries!

This list will give you plenty of ideas re: good things to deep fry. Rank your favorites and feel free to add your own. Don't be hesitant; as many state fairs have proven, almost anything goes. Simply think of your favorite foods ever and then deep fry them. Voila: instant fine dining! Some of the most delicious foods in the world are fried, so don't hesitate to consider every option.

What is the strangest deep fried food you've ever tried? Was it any good? If it was, it belongs on this list. Obviously not everyone will love the same thing. French fries? Probably a winner with most. Fried pickles? That might be more of an acquired taste (though they really are delish with some ranch dressing). And here's a thought: Is there a particular vegetable you won't eat, ever? Try frying it up, the top deep fried foods; you might be pleasantly surprised (though your waistline and overall health might eventually suffer).

<![CDATA[Celebrities Whose Names Are Hardest to Spell]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/celebrity-name-spelling/amylindorff Some big time Hollywood celebrities have one tiny thing wrong with them: it's very hard to spell their names. These celebrities all have hard names to spell, either because they are much more complex than say, "John Smith," or because they are a creative take on a usually easy name, like "Katharine" Hepburn. Tricky!

The famous names on this list are ones you probably remember, because when you first heard them, you went "well, what now?" Do you misspell Shia LaBeouf every single time you search Google to learn about his latest antics? Yes, yes you do. It's okay, so does everyone else.

From Matthew Mcconnaughheyeyghey (Matthew Mcaun? Matthew Machonahy? Matthew Mahogany? Who even knows.) to Oscar 2013 darling Quvenzhané Wallis, there are some celebs with complicated names that you will just never master. It's okay, the world will keep spinning, I promise.

Celebrities with complicated names are also some of the biggest stars in Hollywood. Remember Monica from Friends? Of course you do, but you definitely don't remember the extra "e" in Courteney Cox! In any case, it's time for you to upvote the celebrity names you can never remember how to spell. Bonus: if you can think of any other famous people with confusing name spellings, then you can, and should, add them to this list for other mystified fans of big screen stars to ponder.

Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series? Who knows. maybe millions. What we do know, is that a whole bunch of them are very minor players, who have really awesome character names, nicknames, and monikers. Some of these hilariously named characters also have small roles on HBO's Game of Thrones, so an even wider group of fans has been blessed with the opportunity to meet delightful characters like Dolorous Edd.

These aren't the Lannisters we're talking about - these are the lesser known characters who you only remember because their name is something crazy like Clubfoot Karl, or Swampy Meg. (Poor Swampy Meg.) The world of Westeros and Essos is large and complex, and the minor Game of Thrones characters on this list come from all parts of the realm, beyond the Wall, and even across the Narrow Sea.

No matter how these characters earned their unique, odd names, you surely won't forget them anytime soon, even if you can't remember whether they were a hedge knight or a smuggler. Martin has proved throughout ASOIAF that he is great and coming up with character names and it only makes the GoT universe more fun.

<![CDATA[The Best Vacation Spots in the Solar System]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-places-in-the-solar-system/michaelgraff The solar system is a vast, amazing place. From our Goldilocks-zone planet of Earth we've been able to observe and learn quite a lot about our solar neighborhood. Most of that knowledge has come from high tech probes and telescopes, letting us peek at the other celestial bodies that make up our solar system.

Getting there in person has proved a considerable challenge for our tenacious drive to explore. The whole solar system is hundreds of millions of kilometers of space, inhabited by objects that make up an infinitesimal fraction of that volume. And even if you could live long enough to make the voyage, these places aren't exactly hospitable, with all manners of intolerable cold, heat or toxicity.

But let's just assume we all had a TARDIS or something. What cool things in the solar system could you visit? What outer space tourist sites would be your favorite destinations in an age of space tourism? Once you've considered this important question, why not rank your favorite Star Wars planets also?

<![CDATA[Important Things You Forgot Happened on Game of Thrones]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/game-of-thrones-plot-points-you-forgot/michaelgraff HBO's Game of Thrones might not have thousands of pages to pack with details, unlike the books on which it's based,  but there are more than enough to keep track of. Moving between several royal families and their scattered retainers, each episode builds up several dense story lines with backstories and contexts.

There's plenty of major developments that we all remember, highlights from each season. But there could be just as many things you forgot about Game of Thrones. Less dramatic moments, but filled with important details all the same. Or perhaps some lighter moments, quietly funny pauses that broke up the doom and gloom.

If you're looking to understand the story and the characters of the show a little better, here are 16 things you forgot happened on GoT.

<![CDATA[The Best Super Nintendo (SNES) Games]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-super-nintendo-_snes_-games List of the best games ever released for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The 16-bit Super Nintendo (or SNES) video game console was available beginning in 1990 in Japan (where it was known as the Super Famicom) and the following year in North America, and was not discontinued until 2003 and 1999, respectively. During the 16-bit era (which primarily featured SNES competition from the Sega Genesis console), Super Nintendo was the world's best-selling video game system. Over 39 million SNES units were sold around the world (still shy of the incredible 61.91 million original Nintendo systems sold.) Even into the 32-bit era, Super Nintendo systems remained commonplace in homes around the world.

794 total games were officially released for the Super Nintendo system. The first games available for the new system were "Super Mario World," "F-Zero," "Pilotwings," "SimCity" and "Gradius III." "Super Mario World" - which was often bundled and sold with the system in its early days - remained the best-selling SNES game of all time, with over 20 million units sold. Many Super Nintendo titles have remained popular through the use of emulators, which can currently recreate the SNES experience on computers.

<![CDATA[The Most Annoying Sports Metaphors and Idioms]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/annoying-sports-metaphors-idioms/amylindorff Welcome to an idioms list for a very special kind of idiom. It's the sports idiom and we can all agree that they are just the worst. These sports metaphors and idioms are pretty annoying when used in casual, everyday conversation, and especially in a business setting. Carol really hit it out of the park, huh? Why not just say she did a great job? That sounds like a perfectly fine way to put that!

What is an idiom? The dictionary says it's "a group of words established by usage as having a meaning not deducible from those of the individual words." You can decipher that on your own time. Basically it is a weird phrase that people say to mean something else entirely, and many of them are sports-related. You've definitely heard them. They are things like "play the field," "fumble the ball," and "down to the wire." Some you maybe didn't know were sports metaphors, but now that you do, maybe they will annoy you even more than before. You're welcome!

This isn't to say that sports aren't fun. Lots of people love them and that is really great! The thing is, they can stay out of your emails and your meetings and your elevator small talk very easily.

So, peruse this sports metaphors list and upvote the sports idioms with which you have just plain had it up to here. Plus, if there is a sport idiom that isn't listed here, but is common around your workplace and/or with your friend group and you wish it would go away forever, feel free to add it to this list and maybe someone will take notice.

With the rise of chat rooms in the late '90s, many (fictional and real life) predators took to the web to hunt their prey. In order to capture the heinous Internet crimes of the decade, SVU took the liberty of inventing a slew of ridiculous, fake websites that mirror websites in real life. Due to copyright, they can't exactly use the terms "Facebook" or "Myspace" to talk about popular social media sites, so they've invented their own.   

What are the funniest fake websites from Law & Order: SVU? Face Union is definitely a top contender. Seldom does an SVU episode go by that doesn't bring up this popular social media site. It seems like all the hip college kids and high schoolers are connected through Face Union, just like young adults in the real world are addicted to Facebook. For some reason, no adults in the SVU universe have Face Union accounts, but nearly every child crime involves looking up someone's latest profile pic or cryptic post. 

Other fake websites from SVU include chat rooms like Slasher Fan and Soccer Rulez, dark blogs like Catching the Train and ScratchYourItch.net, and a bunch of fake pornography sites like The Rack Menagerie and Lolitaville.  
Vote up the best fake websites from Law & Order: SVU, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comment section.

Whether they murder, lie, cheat, steal, or all of the above, there are plenty of people to hate in a series that regularly kills off fan favorite characters (and imprisons, rapes, and slanders others).

<![CDATA[The Most Random Things That Predict Presidential Elections]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/things-that-predict-every-presidential-election/mike-rothschild If you want to win your office betting pool for the 2016 election, you need to accurately predict who is going to win for president. Fortunately, there are a number of random factors and trends that point the way to who is going to win. Some of them gauge the general tenor of where the American people are, like the 7-11 Cup Contest, or which candidate's face is selling the most Halloween masks. Others are totally random, like sports winners, or Olympic sites. But all are eerily accurate predictors and might just tell you who is going to win the 2016 election.
For example, did you know there's one tiny county in Indiana that almost always votes the same way the presidential election goes? Or that kids and college students tend be very accurate in mock elections? And if you really want to make some money on the election, see who offshore betting sites have favored - and where the money is going.

Here are some random factors that you can use to get a leg up in your election predictions. Not all of them will be accurate, but some of them have proven to be right time and time again.

You know, those celebrities you feel like you know.

Or maybe your favorite celebrity followed you back on Twitter. The celebrities on this list are the famous folks who you feel like you could get a drink with, or talk about your favorite movie without feeling like a total weirdo.

Vote up the celebrities you feel like you could know - whether it's because they are transparent on social media, friendly in interviews, or you watched them grow up through an awkward phase; in short, they just seem like you could be friends with them. And if you don’t feel like you could hang with any of these celebs, add the stars who you think you could hang with.

<![CDATA[The Best Tight Ends in the NFL]]> http://www.ranker.com/crowdranked-list/best-tight-ends-in-the-nfl Tight ends have become an integral piece to a football team's offense. In the past, tight ends have mostly served as extra offensive lineman to help with run blocking and an occasional pair of hands to catch a defense off-guard. But the game has changed significantly recent years. Big, athletic, pass catching tight ends have allowed offenses to stretch the field and are an added threat in today's predominantly pass-first NFL. The influx of these players has changed the way defenses prepare for an opposing team and now have to take account players they wouldn't have had to worry about in the past. For many years, Tony Gonzalez was considered the preeminent tight end for his rare combination of speed and power. He is widely looked at the greatest tight end to play the game. Gonzalez was the first in this era for tight ends. Players like New England's Rob Gronkowski, San Francisco's Vernon Davis and New Orleans' Jimmy Graham are three examples of these bigger, faster tight end whom have followed in Gonzalez's footsteps.

Vote for the tight end you think is the best in the NFL. The definition for who you consider to be the top tight end is open-ended. It can be one of the pass catchers from above or a blocking tight end. No matter what definition you choose, be sure to vote for your favorite tight end.

<![CDATA[The Trickiest Eggcorns in the English Language]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/eggcorn-list/loganrapp What's an eggcorn and why would an eggcorn database or eggcorn list exist at all? Well, the English language is tricky and full of words and phrases that are easily mispronounced or misspelled. Heck, just about any language is tricky and full of nuance. There's a great video of Stephen Fry talking about language being an evolving thing, and that more pedantic folks shouldn't be so hard up to correct people. Many agree, but this list of eggcorns is something fun to think about!

Okay, so what is an eggcorn? I's a phrase or a word that, through misspelling, mispronunciation, or a simple misunderstanding of its meaning, has been changed to an incorrect phrase. In fact, the word eggcorn is itself an eggcorn: the linguist who coined the term chose that word after speaking with someone who said "eggcorn" instead of "acorn." 

So, we thought it'd be fun for linguaphiles to look at and rank the trickiest and most confusing eggcorns that sometimes trip up even the most avid grammar and language lovers. Some of these mistakes are just straight up wrong and get the meaning mixed up. Some are honest mistakes that most people rarely challenge. Some, interestingly, are phrases that, when you really think about it, still hold the spirit of the original meaning. '

The point is, this is all in good fun. Haters to the left! Let's enjoy the linguistic mistakes, poetry, and nightmares of eggcorns together.

These are the most fashionable women to grace the small screen, whether they’re powerful in Prada or beguiling in boho-chic. Sometimes quirky, other times glam, these best dressed ladies on TV have always done one thing: wowed viewers with their well-put-together styles.

 One way for fashionable TV women to catch audiences’ attention is with high-end evening wear. From slinky black dresses to shockingly pink frocks, trendsetting TV women are the focus of the party, and they command both the audience’s and the other characters’ attention. Could anyone rip his or her eyes away from Blair (“Gossip Girl”) when she stunned in the gold embroidered, peacock-inspired evening dress designed by Marchesa? The hottest TV women know how to wear designer fashions, and they wear them well.

 Of course, the best dressed women on TV don’t always dress to the nines. Even in a simple sweater and jeans, however, these fashionable television females are still the height of style. Rachel (“Glee”) is the pinnacle of casual, preppy chic, while Carrie (“Sex and the City”) could work almost any article of clothing into her eccentric, distinctive style. These fashionable TV women are so inspiring that there are websites devoted to helping viewers capture their looks and style.

 This list contains the most fashionable women on TV, the stylish female TV characters who have dressed to impress episode after episode.

<![CDATA[All the Villains & Nemeses on Archer]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/best-archer-villains/rhune-kincaid FX's smart-as-a-whip animated comedy Archer is full of some of the zingiest one-liners, raunchiest sex scenes, and longest running jokes on television. But beneath all that is the skeleton of classic spy stories that rival the staples of the espionage genre. That's where the villains come in. No matter how complicated or unrealistic their schemes are, they provide the backbone for the comedy that ensues. They motivate the plot so that the jokes have context. Without villains, Lana, Sterling, Cyril, Pam, Cheryl, Malory, Ray, and Dr. Krieger are goofballs without a cause.

Good guys are attracted to bad girls, they sometimes do bad things, and in the case of Sterling Archer, come from bad parents, but the bad thing that good guys need most badly is bad guys. 
Zip up your turtleneck and watch your phrasing for this trip in to the Danger Zone with a ranking of Archer's greatest nemeses, villains, scoundrels, and downright bad guys.
