For us, members of television fandoms, binge watching shows, while unhealthily stuffing our faces, is a pretty much regular part of life. And once we get really impressed by a particular character of a show, we get hooked. And I mean, really hooked, line, sinker, all of em.

Settling down on the couch, remote in hand, we engross episode after episode of our favourite shows, while gawking at the leads. These are the top 10 most badass men and women on TV in my humble opinion, in no particular order, that I can’t get enough of:

1. Jax Teller

Played by the cool as ever (unless he’s pissed) Charlie Hunnam, this guy’s every scene makes us cheer for him! From dealing with messy family drama to managing the motorcycle club he’s a president of, to dealing with rival gangs, and handling his manipulative step-dad, Jax sure makes it look easy!

2. Cersei Lannister

Is it any wonder that Queen Cersei is on this list? The sly, calculating Lannister Queen, played by the beautifully badass Lena Headey, gives new meaning to “evil” and “manipulative”.

3. Dean Winchester

Any Supernatural fan you ask, Dean Winchester, played by Jensen Ackles, will be at the top of their favourites list. And why not? The quintessential tortured soul, teamed with the wit and suave most guys aspire to have, Dean’s THE Hunter, of hearts!

4. Kate Beckett

Ah, Captain Kate Beckett. Played by Stana Katic, anything said about her is too less. Forget the fact that she’s one of the most exquisitely, effortlessly beautiful cops you’ve ever seen, she’s got the brains and the skills to match it. Not to forget, that smile, I’d totally die for.

5. Ragnar Lothbrok

This guy, played by Travis Fimmel, though not that popular yet, has carved himself quite a fan following. The cunning and deceptive Viking, with a thirst for glory, riches, and knowledge, rose from a simple farmer to the King of Denmark, using only his wits and words.

6. Jessica Jones

It’s been a long time since we’ve had a television show with a female lead that totally blew us away. Well, Jessica did just that. Played brilliantly by Krysten Ritter, Jessica is the jaded, cynical anti-hero with a traumatic past, fighting to overcome her very real demons, and take her life back!

7. Walter White

Anyone who’s seen Breaking Bad has been in awe of Bryan Cranston’s Golden Globe winning portrayal of Walter White. Starting off as a meek, harmless Chemistry professor, the transformation of White into the Ruthless mastermind he becomes, is a thing of awe.

8. Peggy Carter

Another impressive woman, Peggy Carter, played by Hayley Atwell, is one of the most prominent agents of the British army, during World War II, fighting against HYDRA, the Nazi super weapons division. Having helped create Captain America himself, this is one woman you don’t wanna mess with!

9. Captain Flint

The fearsome Captain Flint, played brilliantly by Toby Stephens, is cold, cunning, and vicious, bordering on emotionless. Known as being the most feared of all the Golden Age pirates, Flint is the de facto head of the entire pirate population of Nassau, as they fight to retain their freedom from the invading British and Spanish forces.

10. Skye

Skye, played by Chloe Bennet isn’t just cute as a button, she’s one of THE best hackers in the world, and possesses seismic powers, giving her the name Tremors. Having gone through betrayal, torture, heartbreak, and life without any parents, Skye’s tougher than nails, and currently leads the Inhumans as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
