Ladies who kick butt (and look good doing it)
By Michael O'Connell, Special to Metromix
Between "Burn Notice," "White Collar," "Psych" and "Royal Pains," summers on USA are a veritable sausage-fest of crime fighting. The network hopes to finally mix things up in July by adding the female-led "Covert Affairs," which advertising would have you believe is all about Piper Perabo looking really good, holding a gun.
That got us thinking (in an entirely apolitical way, mind you): is there anything more compelling than a hot, gun-toting gal? TV doesn't think so. The most compelling and attractive tube heroines of the last decade have drawn their power from the deadly combo of smart outfits and a weapon at the ready. Salute them with us. It's part of your Second Amendment rights.
